I should have written a review for this hotel much earlier than this, simply because we love it so much! We first stayed here in early 2013 and came back for New Year's this year. Location is great (quiet end of Duval St., but still within walking distance of everything), and we love the view! Service is also very good.... More

I don't normally write reviews, but this place is so wonderful, that it provoked me to write one. The biggest reason why I think it deserves 5 stars is because it is in the perfect location, and the rooms, and Dewey House are just enchanting. I could leave my room and walk right onto a pretty beach, watch the sunset,... More

Admittedly, we are a bit late with this review! We stayed at the Dewey House last May (2013) for the 4th time. We have obviously been very happy with this place in every way. We should note that we stay for 11-12 nights when we come not just a few - we use it more like a hotel than a... More

From the gracious staff to the beautiful, luxurious room, we felt so well taken care of. Everything we needed was available to us...3 pools, spa, restaurant and bar, beach and tanning pier. Turn down service and plush robes spoiled us! A special thanks to the concierges, Bryan and Julie who booked an Island Adventure tour and even checked us in... More

We have loved being at Dewey House in March for three years now, but we won't be back. It really is a kind of paradise. There are so many options for spending the day - just on the grounds. There are three pools, and each has a different atmosphere. You can walk around the spacious grounds be it by the... More

The Check-in staff at Southernmost on the Beach Hotel did us a massive favour by upgrading us to here when our UK travel agent (Trailfinders) booked us into a room category which didn't exist. We would have found ourselves across the road at the Southernmost Hotel, more motel style, not what we wanted for a special trip. Dewey House has... More
