The Hotel Bellwether and the unbelievable, amazing staff should be rated 25 out of five!!! The fantasticly gracious, warm staff coupled with the magnificent setting and "old world" charm helped to make our stay a delightful fairy tale we will NEVER forget!!! It was a special anniversary and their enchanting front desk staff as well as their fantastic Restaurant Manager and staff went out of their way to set up our room as a romantic dream that truly took my husband's breath away when we entered our room (not easy to do!). The room was huge with awesome lanai, excellent views (table and chairs perfect for early morning coffee), luxury robes for a luxury bathroom complete with two-person jacuzzi tub and separate shower and a huge comfy bed delivering a wonderful peaceful slumber. The many, many countless acts the staff performed with such grace and genuine caring went wayyyyy above and beyond anything we have experienced before!!! They did everything to make sure EVERY DETAIL of our stay was perfect...(and key staff coordinates with me weeks before we even arrived) from the special treats in the lounge to the variety of soaps, bath salts and creams, to rose petals all through our room and into the jacuzzi bath......there really are not enough words to express what an amazing hotel, rich with beautiful antiques, a huge fireplace with carved mantel, great artwork, water falls, the perfect setting with views of the marina and open water that cannot be beat...and THEN, couple that with the most caring and friendly staff--from the front desk, to each of the restaurants/lounge as well as outstanding housekeeping staff just as warm, caring and thorough....You could not stay at a more amazing hotel, reminiscent of european chateaus, surrounded by outstanding natural beauty, simply amazing food with knowledgeable, eager and delightful servers, a huge wine selection and top that off with THE VERY BEST EXTRAORDINARY WARM AND CARING STAFF WE HAVE EVER ENCOUNTERED--add that up and you have all the components of a stay you will never forget!! Special kudos to Sarah, Andrew, Teri, Karen, Levi, Erin, Sean, Jim, Krystina, Ashley--You are beyond compare!! When you book your stay at the Hotel Bellwether, you are in for a wonderful stay!!!!!
