We stayed at this hotel following a cruise out of Fort Lauderdale, due to its relatively close location. Upon arrival we were very pleasantly surprised. The service was exemplary, with friendly welcomes from the cleaning staff to the beach attendant. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. And the beach view was priceless. This is one of the best beaches in Florida for walking, swimming, and even shelling. Even though this hotel does not have its own restaurant, except for breakfast and light snacks, there is an extensive choice of local restaurants which deliver to the hotel. We had dinner delivered and ate it in their breakfast room, overlooking the ocean. Believe me, it was difficult leaving the hotel, especially knowing what would greet us back in Wisconsin. This is a hidden jewel which you almost hate to share. One of the staff told us that Paul Newman and his wife stayed here several times. If we are ever in this part of Florida again we will definitely stay here.
