The tropical weather was sublime and tranquil. Sunlight beckons me, he thought, stepping out onto the Veranda (that was the name for the dining area) for breakfast. He could see the middle aged men whose ranks he was steadily joining and could not help but be unimpressed. No matter how much sun they soaked up, or how much exercise they got, no matter what gaudy watch they wore or what clothes adorned their backs they did not look good. And isn’t looking good all? The pool, the ochre tiles and the decadence of the in pool bar. He thought that was something that went out in the 80s with The Love Boat. Probably when this hotel was built. The hotel has not aged enough to be considered classic or elegant; it looks gaudy and dated. The large sized rooms are a pleasant and welcome change from many of the hotel rooms he had stayed in.
