Unfortunately, Trip Advisor doesn't have a separate entry for the marina portion of this so-called resort. This review only concerns it, not the hotel. Because all the boats were rented out we chose instead to take the guided tour on their large, covered pontoon boat. It was a little informative and proceeded upriver at a leisurely pace. Yet, it was... More

We stayed here the night before we snorkeled with manatees for the first time. The resort was VERY busy, but spread out enough that it wasn't like you were standing or walking on top of each other. It is by no means a new resort, but has a lot of charm. Our room was actually a two room suite and... More

This place was absolutely awesome! We had a beautiful view of the river and we were also close to the pool, Monkey Island, and restaurants! The hotel property was very clean. We thoroughly enjoyed sitting at the marina and watching all the activity. Monkey Island was so much fun to sit and watch the monkeys play. We boated on Saturday.... More

The first thing you need to know is depending on which villa you stay in will greatly effect your experience. I have only stayed in one room (2x) at this establishment which was room 209. If you dont care about your view and are just in the area for the water attractions probably any room will do, though I heard... More

This is our fave place to stay in the area: we love the Monkey Bar, watching the monkeys play on Monkey Island over glasses of wine, live music, and baskets of seafood (crabs when they have them...) at the Crab Shack, watching the pelicans enjoy treats from returning fishermen and women on the dock below, the amazing manatee snorkeling right...

I have been to Homosassa Riverside Resort several times in the last 4 years. As a recap, we have been here as a married couple, young family and most recently a pair of families both with kids. If you want the quick answer, this place is great for every family scenario you have... On the resort property itself, you can... More

We stayed one night at the resort in conjunction with a manatee swim. Our swim and room was about $119 which was an excellent deal. Dave was our guide and he was great, the room was basic but clean. I had to switch the date of travel at the last minute and the reservation desk was helpful. I felt a... More

This is a very nice place for vacationing, watching manatees, hanging out, watching monkeys, boat riding, eating, and on and on. The rooms are very nice. The suite we stayed in had two completely separate rooms: a kitchen and living room together, and a separate bedroom with bathroom. The suite had two entry doors off the deck/walkway. The river was... More

Very out of the way. From the time I arrived til the time I left, only 2 nights, It was more than I expected. The first night I went to the Monkey Bar and the entertainment was great. I was a little tired from the drive so just had an appetiser. The next day I drove around the area and... More
