I was thrilled with the ultra modern appointments in our ocean view room. The decor, the cleanliness and having a mini-fridge in the room is so helpful when you have kids. The waitress at the pool bar went out of her way cheerfully to accommodate my family. Our room service was on time, delicious, and the Starbucks coffee was greatly appreciated as I dread weak coffee. I found all the employees to be very helpful and friendly. Traveling with kids, I have non-routine needs and they were so accommodating.
This stretch of beach is family friendly, clean, close to fast food if you need it, good parking, the whole area is very secure if you run, cycle or exercise with the health minded who are out from dawn till dark. (Dawn on the beach is worth getting up for and safe)
We even attended a Loggerhead Turtle hatchling release at the Gumbo Limbo Nature Center just north of the hotel. Several government agencies and universities oversee the turtle nesting and beach conservation in this area. It's just beautiful. Thank you Lisa P.
