Going to Matecumbe Resort is like stepping back in time a few decades. It's Americana. This is not a place where you order drinks and chilled towels at the tropical pool. It's the kind of place where you bring a few good books for the week, keep some tea or wine chilled and ready, and relax under the palms on the little white-sand beach at the rear of the property. Watch the ospreys and pelicans when you need a break from reading. For those wishing to flee the cold greyness of the US northeast winters, this modest resort is medicinal. The pace is slow and sleepy, as another writer said. You can prepare your meals in the room kitchenettes or go out for every meal if you prefer. For a certain kind of traveler, it makes for good times and fond memories. For others, it's old, dowdy, and unfashionable. You decide!
