We last stayed at this hotel back in 2009. Since that date it has had a bit of a makeover in the foyer and public areas. It's all open plan now, with a central bistro serving area. Check-in was fast and efficient. We had arrived early, but one of the two rooms I had booked was ready, so we had somewhere to dump bags and get changed. The rooms have also been decorated, and new air-con units have been installed. The staff were all polite and extremely helpful. A special mention should go to Rita who works at the Bistro - she remembered us from our previous visit, and made us feel extremely welcome, you could say almost like family. Since our last visit they had introduced a pool-side tiki bar which opens at weekends, but this seemed poorly attended, probably due to poor advertising that it was actually there!! Only complaint - lack of enforcement of the pool rules - plenty of feral kids running amok, both around the pool and in the foyer area - but this was down to bad parenting rather than a fault of the hotel.
We got a pool view room this time. From the sixth floor you could see right across to the Banana River and beyond. Traffic noise from the busy A1A was more noticeable, as was noise from the pool area, especially if you chose to sit on the balcony, but wasn't enough to ruin our stay at this hotel.
The new Bistro was first class, and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. The fixed price breakfast has now gone, and you can pick and choose from a wide selection of breakfast, lunch and dinner options. There was also a 24 hour "shop" adjacent to reception where you could pick up drinks, snacks and a few last minute items.
This has been our 4th visit to this hotel, and it has never failed to please. We did a week in Orlando, doing the parks, which was hectic, and this second week was what a holiday should be - relaxing and peaceful. We were really sorry to have to leave.
