We stayed in the Big Sur suite during a babymoon with our second child. The room was large and modern. I loved having a wood burning fireplace in the room as the evenings could get quite chilly. The grounds were beautiful and well maintained. We hiked on the path to the restaurant on the property, which was a nice 10 minute walk. Although not advertised, the hotel also has a shuttle that will take you to restaurants in the area. It was great to park your car upon arrival and not have to think about driving during our stay.
The hotel was extremely laid back; people walk around the property in just their bath robes. There are two pools and Japanese baths on the property, one of which is clothing optional.
The hotel also offers a complimentary continental breakfast. They even had a barista so that you can order espresso, cappuccinos, etc.
I had a prenatal massage and prenatal scrub at the spa during our stay. However, the treatments were very average, and the spa did not have any special facilities.
Because the hotel does not allow children, I do not know if we will be back. However, I would recommend the hotel to others who are looking for a peaceful getaway.
