The reviews for this place were amazing and the photos were gorgeous, so I was expecting to be slightly disappointed, however I was far from it, in fact the hotel was more than I could have ever hoped for.
I stayed in early May, the beginning of the Florida resort "off season", so I saved some money, but also was met with the beginning of love bug season, a little gross, however not the worst.
The room smelled very clean, the carpet was clean and the balcony was beautiful.
With a private balcony it was pleasant to sit outside, although there were quite a few bugs.
I am a girl who loves nature so the plants covering the hotel were a beautiful and welcomed atmosphere, as well as the flowers they provided.
The restaurant downstairs was delicious, however a bit pricey. And the piano bar had a great atmosphere, with a delightfully funny bartender.We stayed in room 125, which was a perfect distance from the piano bar so noise was never a problem.
The neighborhood is quite and great for jogging (the beach was not good for jogging at this time of year unless your okay with a mouthful of love bugs).
Although the resort is not beach front, the entrance to the public beach was literally right across the street from the hotel, and therefore walking distance was never a problem.
Additionally the resort staff were polite, pleasant, and wonderful to talk with, and deal with.
I have no complaints, except for the love bug population, which is part of the florida natural ecosystem and important to our natural environment preservation and has not a single thing to do with the hotel.
My boyfriend and I can't wait to return for our next vacation!
