By happenstance, we found the DeSoto. We travel to Southeast Florida (from Baltimore) regularly for the beach and to visit family. The Desoto stood out as a charming, attractive place to stay. We will return.
Steve, our host, couldn't have been nicer and made us feel so very welcome. It was very clean, something we care about. Every morning we woke up to having our breakfast and the fresh coffee provided looking out at the wonderful colors of the gardens and to the sound of the little ponds. Also, we loved the occasional bird calls, which were not loud or annoying, just added that little extra, interesting touch.
Our bed was super comfortable. We were glad to have the dvd player, wish there was HBO, but hey, nothing's perfect.
Hardly a walk to the beach, it was just steps away and the use of beach chairs,umbrellas and bikes, what more could you want?
My hubby and I are delighted with our find. I read the few negative comments on here and wonder what place they are talking about.
The DeSoto was quiet, clean, comfortable, beautiful landscaping and well worth the price. Our host was the best.
We've stayed at lots of different kinds of places in the Hollywood/Pompano area over the years and there were a few cheaper, a few with things we like, i.e. pools/hot tubs/health centers/restaurants. But, for the money, we think the DeSoto has a nice combo of things we must have...clean, comfort, closeness to beach, attractive, right price and the extras make it worth going back. So we will be doing that as soon as we can.
