“Does LOCATION thrump”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Free parking at front door. full apt. with a fully equipped kitchen with a walk in closet with plenty of hangers. TV Large chairs and ottomans to match.Leave the room and turn left you have the ocean and sand out the back door and on the way to the ocean is a lovely pool with lounge chairs tables and umbrellas etc. Up to Now Utopia.

Downside is watching this fantastic location giving in to time. Building and concrete in need of power wash and paint. It was like driving up to the resort and it puts you right back in the 60s and 70s. If you where around those times you know what I mean. Unfortunately We had a room on the 2nd floor so I have to mention the smaller steps and the older metal railings.Just reminded me of years past.

The room as you enter as I mentioned was lovely but up close you can see the the need for kitchen refurbishing and Grab rails for us older folks would have been nice and taller toilet would have been really helpful for us older folks plus new paint etc. Plus side it was fully furnished with every thing to spend a week with the kids so if you are watching your budget you could eat as if you were at home.
Publex market across the street but within walking distance a couple of fast food.

The help where friendly, the parking was easy and free,the pool and facilities you expect with the pool were there,And what can you say! Beach and Ocean at your back door, Nothing more to say.

Give in that the property is out dated I still give it a thumbs up in a hand held high and would stay there again

Hi,
our family had an excellent stay at this place. All of us enjoyed this place which is both central to the airport as well as being right on the beach. The place was really clean, and the room was perfect for our big family. Can recommend this!

Hello, I just spent 5 days at Captain's Quarters and had a GREAT time.
It's all about the location, right on the beach, no road to cross. The courtyard/swimming pool area is well arranged, providing chairs and tables to relax. The rooms are basic but have been well kept. And not to mention the very friendly staff.
Just a few minus points: the room had a very noisy AC unit and the kitchen utensils could be renewed.
Most people we met at the resort had been there several times and I have to admit that I would consider returning.
Additional bonus: there's a CVS and supermarket (publix) at the end of the street. A few blocks way, Commercial Boulevard offers a few restaurants and bars.
If you go there just to relax and enjoy the beach, you really do not need to rent a car. The taxi from the airport was about 35-40$ and it was a 15 minutes ride.

We stayed here for 4 nights and loved it!!! The room was clean, the staff were friendly, there were beach chairs and boogie boards for guests to use, it's located within walking distance of some great restaurants, and we had a beautiful view of the ocean from our room! Also the pool is very nice!

This was our third time staying @ Captain’s Quarters and we can’t wait to go back again! The owners & staff are very accommodating and go out of their way to make us feel welcome. We love that the resort is right on the beach--just a few steps from the pool and you’re in the ocean! The grounds are beautiful and immaculate; the owners take great pride in making everything just right. The pool is great, beach is beautiful and the rooms are very clean. There is a refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker in the room, there’s also a gas bbq grill available for the guests to use. They provide beach towels and lounge chairs available on the beach. Coffee, juice and delicious pastries were waiting for us in the lobby every morning.

The location couldn’t be better. There’s a shopping plaza with a Publix, CVS, etc… just around the corner. A short walk down the street is where all the action is --the fishing pier, shops, restaurants and bars are always fun after a day on the beach.

Another great thing about this hotel is that it is not a spring break destination. The people that stay here are mostly mature couples and families; therefore, it is enjoyable (peaceful & relaxing) to sit outside on the patio or by the pool.

Thank you Mera, Ahmed & staff for your hospitality and for helping to make our vacation perfect! See you all again soon...
