We'd stayed at this property when it was under other management and another name - the Royal Scandinavian (I believe it was). They've completely re-modeled the place and it's gorgeous. The rooms are very clean, the bathroom with its two sinks and glassed-in shower are wonderful.
Bed: comfortable with a variety of pillow "textures" and types to suit your preferences.
WiFi: works great.
Amenities: small fridge, wine glasses, and all the other things a quality hotel offers. Flat screen TV. Free copy of USA Today - a bit of a milque-toast publication, but I guess they don't want to get anyone agitated while on vacation.
Nice place... so why only a 4 out of 5?
The pool is very nice if small. Since staying at some other resorts lately, I guess I've been spoiled by what a pool - or poolS - could be. Why spoil the ambiance with gaudy signs advising "No Diving" etc. - is that a state requirement or just some lawyer's idea of keeping the management safe from lawsuits? Either way, having the huge signs really clashes with the rest of the property. Maybe that's a trivial complaint, but there it is.
So OK, I'm a news junkie even when away on vacation. I watch a variety of news outlets and subscribe to everything from the far-left "Nation" magazine, to the Limbaugh Letter.
I watch MSNBC and Fox News, but wait... I can get CNN, but when I try and access Fox News, it's "no signal" time. The printed material in the room says it's on Channel "6" - but no signal. The electronic menu says it's on Channel "15," but again, it's not. Are the Chumash censoring Fox News? I think they might just be - and that bugs. If the management reads this, I'd love a response.
