We stayed for two days and one night, but we could have stayed longer. It was very peaceful. I'm sure it is busier in the winter when the manatees are all there, but we enjoyed the quiet. The rooms were clean, as well as the grounds. The pool was wonderful, and the view out over the water was great. We... More

We stayed at this hotel 30th April for 1 night to join a manatee tour. As I booked via a hotel booking website I didn't realise at the time that there was the Adventure centre on site which was a massive bonus! We arrived early afternoon and checked into our room early. We had a car park view on the... More

We arrived at the hotel after being on the road driving for about 10 hours. We were tired, hungry and a little sore from sitting for so long. When we arrived at check in, we were greeted by a blonde haired girl. We asked about the restaurant and she told us to make a reservation right away (it was about... More

Great place to stay to see the manatee , excursions right out of their marina. Also fishing guides out of their marina also. If fishing I suggest hang em high charters, capt. Clay was raised on the river and I haven't found a more knowledgeable guide in the area.

No really bad hotel but it could be much better. We wanted no view of the parking lots and asked for a better view. We got a handicapped room where we had to pay in the first instance, $ 20 That is really not an upgrade but because we did not want parking lot view we accepted this. It was... More

We stayed there for a long weekend. The golf course was good and room OK. We had water front on canal. Breakfast buffet was OK and dinner was good but over priced. Plus this area has a lot of extra taxes like Hilton Head. I would have spent less with a weekend at Cocoa beach on the ocean.

Finally a first class establishment in Crystal River. The local restaurant owners should take a tour of the dining room and see what clean and neat looks like. Most restaurants in Crystal River need a good cleaning. My party of eight thoroughly enjoyed the Sunday brunch. The food selections, service and atmosphere are top shelf. Take a break from Mama...

Our party of 10 celebrated our friends 55th wedding anniversary. A surprise for the wife. We had a wonderful meal. My salmon on a bed of spinach and Alfredo rice was awesome!

We had a very nice stay at this property. Stayed in the jasmine wing which is close to pool and restaurant. Upstairs water view room. Garden view rooms only look at parking lot. Room was clean and bright and recently updated. Pool and grounds are very nice. Breakfast was good and reasonably priced. Only strange thing was in the booking.... More
