This was a surprise present for my partner after a short business trip to a convention in Orlando. The hotel is just paradise, right on the beach and although the time of year was not the best (November), the days were still warm, despite dusk at 5.45. It was still warm enough to eat outdoors in the evening, a refreshing change from cold wet England!
The apartment was excellent, with a balcony and views over the Gulf of Mexico. It was relatively deserted at this time of year and one walk on the beach resulted in the finding of a very large and beautiful sea shell, the largest I've seen outside a tourist shop! Now proudly sitting on my girl friends coffee table.
A few minor grumps; the TV connection was not working, not normally a problem, but this was the week of the presidential election and a couple of the lights were difficult to understand to switch on.
Oh and this is true for all of the States; a kettle please! We English like a cup of tea and can't live on a diet of coffee!
