    The Big Sur area is beautiful, and this hotel is terrific. Suite with fireplace in its was particularly lovely, and the pool and baths are great. Can't go wrong staying here. Had dinner one night at the restaurant, which was quite good.

    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.
