Take a gander at the images above; the picture on the left was pulled from each hotel's website, the one on the right was snapped by Oyster reporters. Yes, The Equus on Oahu appears to have slyly attempted the ol' crop trick -- which we first saw back in Miami with our surfing Mr. Model Man -- in which a hotel's pool photos are presented in an artfully-trimmed way so as to (perhaps) suggest that there is much, much more to the pool. But usually there isn't.

If you suspect a hotel pool might be small because the photos on the website only show a teeny sliver of blue water, you're probably correct.
