My husband and I recently booked a trip to Boca Raton to scuba dive. Upon arriving to our hotel and entering the subtle but elegantly furnished and decorated lobby area, we were greeted by the staff members at the front desk. The staff was incredibly personable and gracious informing us of our room location as well as the amenities offered. I must say that I was most impressed after walking through the lobby toward the courtyard area of a sort. Truly, management has outdone itself with this hotel. Literally, I felt as though I was walking into a rainforest. The plant life is very tropical with every sort of plant you can imagine. Lots of palm trees and luscious green on both sides of the walk way. There is even a nice sitting area somewhat hidden away by the tropical forest. It was very beautiful and convincing of the fact that we were away in a tropical paradise.
I would like to mention that I am quite picky when I visit a hotel. I nit-pick over everything - especially the cleanliness of my quarters. I inspect everything when I am visiting a hotel to insure that I am comfortable in my surroundings. With that said, I did the same thing that I always do when visiting a hotel - I combed my room to make sure there was nothing unhygienic within. I am very pleased to say that we did not encounter a single issue with our room. The bathroom was clean as were the towels. The sink counter is made of marble - very clean and a very beautiful aesthetic addition to the room. The bed was immaculate - perfectly made and impeccably clean. I must make mention that this very rarely happens in my case. I almost always find something that I do not feel comfortable at a hotel. However, this was a different experience. I was very happy with the level of hygiene that is maintained at this facility.
The pool was clean with a very nice sitting area where other guests mingled and socialized. There are washers and dryers here just in case you might need it. I did not need to use them but it was a comfort to know they were available if I were to need to make use of them. The rooms have refrigerators as well as microwaves and a television. I was happy that there was a hair dryer as I had forgotten to bring mine. The hair dryer seemed to be like new, not old and worn out like some hotels offer.
NOW THE BREAKFAST! The breakfast had a wide assortment of options. There were scrambled eggs, waffles, toast, yogurt, sausages, cereal, oatmeal, bagels. There was orange juice, apple juice, milk, and hot coffee available. It was very well prepared. I must say that I am very picky regarding my food as well. I like to make sure that everything looks clean before I decide to eat somewhere. It was very clean and the food was very, very good and filling.
Overall, this hotel is a winner in every category. The staff was very hospitable and accommodating, the location is fantastic, the amenities are well above average, and the scenery is undeniably beautiful and well-managed! My husband and I were very pleased with our experience and would recommend this hotel to any of our family or friends. Thank you very much for a wonderful stay and for helping our trip to be beautiful and memorable! :)
