We stayed here for one night in the off season (January) as a splurge during our Big Sur trip. I've never stayed in a place as nice as this, and would happily do so again! Rooms are clean and spacious, beautifully decorated (ours had a fireplace) and overlook the cliff for a view of the Pacific Ocean. Staff are very courteous and helpful, and we enjoyed the wine and cheese reception the evening we checked in. We enjoyed breakfast in our room the following morning - sitting on our patio wrapped up in complimentary robes, sipping tea and munching on croissants while watching the waves crash is a picture that will stay in my head for a long time!
While pricey, we would definitely stay here again in the off-season.
