We chose to stay here on a Sunday night after our cruise on the advice of our cruise planner. We arrived at the... More

We stayed only one night, December 19 and found our room was clean & spacious. Breakfast was included and you helped yourself, which was great. Everett, as well as other staff members Neela, Marie and Gloria are to be commended too. Everett arranged for us to go on a trip to the Everglades which we thoroughly enjoyed. We got the... More
