We have been to The Colony on Longboat several times over the years. We have always enjoyed it. I am really surprised at the comments on tripadvisor!
We have always known it to be pretty much the same, each time we've gone back.
This is a 'special' trip for my husband and I..(won't bore you with details,) but I'd hate to be going there again, to find it completely run down, which is the general impression I'm getting by reading the reviews.
We will be there over the Valentine's Day weekend. I booked at the restaurant there, to view the sunset (if we get a good table,) but I'm wondering..should I be booking some place in St. Armand's Circle, like Cafe L'Europe?? I haven't been there in awhile either, but I hope it's still up to par.
Advice from any of you would be much appreciated. Thanks!
