We were very impressed with the look of this hotel when we arrived in the shuttle from the airport. The exterior looked well tended and pretty. Check-in was friendly and efficient, and our room was very nice - comfortable bed and clean spacious room. The pool was very pretty with the waterfall, though the pool towels were a little skimpy. The two cats hanging around may not have been on staff but they looked like someone was showing them some care and compassion (saw evidence that someone was feeding them). It doesn't hurt to show some humanity. Anyway, we were told at the front desk that there was a shopping centre 1/4 mile away - it was waaaaaaaay longer than that and not through the best neighborhood - it was a little dark and, while not quite scary, not the most comfortable walk coming back. The hotel looked quite glamorous with its nighttime lighting and the pool was open late for another swim. The hot tub was just a little too hot. Breakfast was OK but nothing special (included with our room). The shuttle system to get everyone to their various cruise ships was very well organized with the driver playing a selection of cruise-related music to get everyone psyched. Altogether a nice one night stay pre-cruise but not close to anything if you wanted a longer Florida vacation.
