Fodor's Review

Justifiably celebrated, this 1940s-era luxury hotel overlooks a spectacular secluded beach on Bacolet Bay just outside Scarborough. Though long neglected, it has been brought back to life by Austrian Karl Pilstl and his wife. The lobby is a study in 1940s perfection and appears now as it may have when Rita Hayworth came through. Rooms have teak floors and glass-partitioned bathrooms (with curtains); four-poster beds and lavish beddings are standard. Rooms in a new wing have sunken sitting areas. The hotel is surrounded by water on three sides, so every room has a spectacular ocean view. There are signs of wear throughout the property as a result of the constant exposure to salt air but this does not detract from the overall charm. The hotel's restaurant, Shutters on the Bay, serves splendid food in an unbeatable atmosphere. Meal plans are available.
