The Club Hotel is a bit pricey but we were able to take advantage of a 40% off special offer so our room was a "mid-level" accommodation in the exclusive Sans Souci which had a huge bedroom with a round turret and working fireplace, large bathroom, and expansive covered balcony on the second floor. The balcony is actually shared with the room next door but the occupants never came out there when we were there. Even if they had, it wouldn't have been a problem because the balcony was so big. Everything was extremely clean and well-maintained and every staff person, from the receptionist to the bell boy to the housekeeping staff to the restaurant staff to the grounds maintenance crew was friendly, helpful and extremely polite and courteous. There are several dining options: the Grand Dining Room where we had several breakfasts, a Sunday Brunch and afternoon Victorian Tea; Courtyard at Crane which serves Mediterranean inspired meals; Café Solterra which offers sandwiches, pizza, bagels & pastries (their version of "fast food") and the Pub, which was promoting Oktoberfest with some german-style fare (we opted for bratwurst with brown mustard and sauerkraut on a pretzel roll and delicious german potato salad) plus room service. There is also a bar and restaurant on the adjacent wharf. All of the food was delicious but the dinner we had at the Courtyard at Crane was extremely memorable--the filet mignon with lobster and Havarti mornay sauce literally melted in your mouth! It was a bit pricey--our bill came to $91 (and we didn't order any alcohol or wine) for 2 entrees which come with a salad and bread and 2 desserts--but well worth the splurge. Amenities are many and varied--there's a pool, bicycle rentals, tram tours of the historic area, horse-drawn carriage rides, trail rides along the beach and in the palm forest, 4 golf courses, a private beach pavilion with snack bar and scores of boat trips/charters and that's not all. We were celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary with a 2nd honeymoon and this was the perfect place. Only one real complaint--if your are looking for quiet at night, avoid being there on the weekend. The noise from the live music at the bar on the wharf was overwhelming at times and one night we had to turn on the TV to drown it out in our room. There were also two weddings which produced a few loud, stumbling drunks on Saturday night that were interesting and entertaining to watch from our 2nd floor balcony but didn't really promote the romantic ambience we were trying to conjure on a perfect moonlit evening.
If you can splurge a little, try to get a room in Sans Souci which was originally built as a 6 apart...
