Amazing hotel
This was possibly the best hotel I've ever stayed at and I've stayed at a lot of hotels. I've never reviewed a place but I just needed people to know what an amazing place this is. It's cozy, comfortable, like I'm at the pool in my own backyard. The amenities were plenty and the staff was incredibly helpful and fun. I almost don't want to write this so I keep this gem to myself.

We loved our Westcott Hotel stay. And , we will be returning. 3 nights not long enough for us. We stayed in a smaller room for night one and then upgraded to a larger room. Both were comfy cozy. The Hotel is personally operated and the host makes your stay simply wonderful. For the first time I do t feel nickel and dimes for every extra. The pantry is open for guests . Full of cookies and snacks and cereal. Every kind of milk available. Late night munchies??? Go have milk and cookies Breakfast was served and it was delightful. Hot eggs if you like it perhaps a frittata. Juice, muffins, croissants . Fresh fruit. Yum!! Ok. Happy hour was our favorite time of day. Mathew served his cocktail of the day in cool Plastic pool friendly tumblers, snacks and great pool side music. The pool is super warm and we were submersed in water for endless hours each day. At night the hotel takes on a glow with very cool lighting. Simply lovely. Our rooms had a desk and e tea chair which made working a breeze. Much appreciated that. Lots of pool seating and towels. It is a funky spot so if your a snob you should stay at the Ritz or elsewhere. However this is my kind of place. Bravo Mathew.
