This is where we are staying (that's NOT Al on the lounger). Its hard to capture the atmosphere. When we arrived, there were 4 people around the pool - 2 with i-pads, 1 on an i-phone and 1 on a Mac. That, along with some seriosuly svelt and hairless men, and some great design and mellowness, gives it a very Californian vibe. Highly recommended.
