We have been holding our International Symposium on Self-Directed Learning at this hotel for the past nine years (That should speak volumes!). We keep coming back because it gets better every year. The staff are extremely pleasant and helpful (especially Ana Leonard, Stefanie Mattia, and the rest of the conference staff), Dee Galli (front desk), and Richard Evans (food and beverage manager). Chef Craig makes sure the food is topnotch and beautifully presented, whether for breakfast purchased in the lobby kiosk, conference breaks, or large-group dinners. Lobby, conference areas, and individual rooms have been updated and are as welcoming as the stately moss-draped oak trees that frame the hotel and pool area. Our participants appreciate the closeness of the beach (about three minutes on foot), and some make annual pilgrimages to Cape Canaveral, the famous Ron-Jon's Surf Shop right down the street, or to many of the excellent restaurants in the area.
It's a very nice facility for an individual stay, a special occasion, or a small conference--but what moves it from desirable to excellent is the delightful and responsive staff! We scheduled our Symposium again for next year before we even left the hotel.
