I loved this more unusual Christmas decor through out the hotel.
Yes, those are surf boards propped up on the pillars. You know you are in surfing territory when you see this!
This looked so beautiful in person. The camera kind of caught it more on the dark side unfortunately. The view from that window is gorgeous!
We sat here while we waited for brunch to be served.
The main restaurant with an ocean view.
Because we had to try out what they were having for brunch, we reserved this ocean view table to enjoy the feast. Starting out with some lovely champagne, my drink of choice by the way.
This was their "amuse bouche." A little fresh fruit..........
followed by the first course of smoked salmon crepe. The timbale in the corner was salmon as well. Very good!!!!
We both decided to have lobster Benedict. So, so good! The English muffin on the bottom was toasted so nicely. Sometimes when I order this, it seems like they don't toast it, and it has a mushiness to it. Not this one though, is was crunchy loveliness.
Oh, it isn't over yet. Dessert was a sticky toffee pudding with a tiny scoop of ice cream. I was so thankful that the dessert was miniature, because at that point, the tummy was quite full. They also served a basket of pastries. Both Ritz Carlton's that we have stayed in, served the best tasting coffee and orange juice also. Sometimes in hotels things like that usually fall short, but not here. Also our waiter "Francisco" was so nice and pleasant to chat with.
We were thinking it would be quite fun to visit other Ritz locations and compare them, wouldn't that be fun?! The last Ritz we stayed in was when we went to visit my father in law in Nevada, and we stayed in Ritz Las Vegas. That was equally as fun and luxurious.
