Concierge.com's insider take:
If you'd rather dress down than up, you'll feel at home here amid a combo of Old World style (crystal chandeliers, French doors) and tropical flair (botanical prints, plush rattan furniture). Add in the amenities, and this unstuffy 189-room luxury hotel north of town is the best of all worlds: It has a white sand beach, a Balinese-inspired spa, four gorgeous swimming pools, a nearby 18-hole Robert Cuppdesigned golf course with its swing-enhancing David Leadbetter Golf Academy, and one of the area's best seafood restaurants. Both romantic and playful, Baleen has a candlelit terrace as well as a formal dining room done in whimsical monkey-motif fabrics.
