Vintage cool and luxury!

We've stayed before but they have upgraded the pool lounges, the bed linens, etc. the staff is welcoming, knowledgable, and the food is great.

Enjoyed the pear vodka martini with pear purée. My partner had the Happy Scotsman, a Johnny Walker whiskey drink. Terrific! Great jazz playing low enough to talk in the bar. Love the whaling mural painting on the wall behind the bar too.
