Our family of five (incl 2 under 10's) have stayed at the Betsey four times now. We've stayed in other hotels along Ocean Drive but have found the big names, though comfortable, to be universally sterile and corporate.
We love the Betsy for its unstuffy, anything goes atmosphere and the friendliness of the staff.
Fabulous position, close to shops, beach and nightlife.
Great restaurant for dinner, BLT does spectacular steaks & a nice wine list.
Nice clean & comfortable rooms with good bathrooms.
Great 'boutique hotel' feel.
Not much choice at expensive breakfast. Would be nice to have a mini-buffet with range of fruits/berries/cereals rather than charge for each berry and FOC juice top-ups!
Rooms a little on small side for price, but not a big problem.
Swimming pool is meagre and shady.
In summary, this is a fab hotel for a few days in the city. It isn't a resort hotel so doesn't have big amenities, but for a luxury relaxing time and a perfect position it is unbeatable.
