The weather was absolutely perfect. The room upgrade was a surprise and welcomed. The location of Ventana was beautiful. We had an amazing ocean view and the staff fell all over us. Wish we could have stayed a week.

Didn't realize this was not an option any more. While breakfast at the main lobby was great, we really enjoy going over to the restaurant and enjoying the view. The Ventana is our Happy Place and has been for nearly 30 years.
