I am currently staying in the Poolside Suite, which is large and comfy. The pool is really warm, like bathtub warm, so the lack of a hot tub is no problem at all. The decor is 50s/60s, with glittery wallpaper and plastic Eames chairs (I want an Eames rocker now). There are a few minuses, such as upholstery stains on the couch and curtains that aren't quite level, but overall, this is a great room. For the price midweek, it is totally awesome.
Right down the street is the Viceroy, where we had 14 dollar drinks that I amazingly didn't feel were a ripoff. Seriously, they were strong and very tasty, and I recommend drinking one by the pool. It's very nice there, but a little too trendy feeling for me. I prefer the laid back vibe of the Del Marcos with 40's and 50's jazz playing to modern electronica around the pool, you know?
This is a very laid back place to stay. Definitely recommended!
