High above the main coastal drive, this white-stucco hotel overlooks deep blue water and coastal ridges. The hotel's elevators, or a steep hike, deposit you at the pool, with a rock ledge for sunbathing carved from the cliff. Lobbies are sleekly decorated, and the dining room serves up wraparound panoramas; guests may also dine on the sea-air terrace. Rooms have vibrant tile flooring, brightly painted furnishings, floral fabrics, wicker, and lots of windows. All doubles have private sea-view balconies, and some have whirlpools.
