“Beautiful Hotel at an excellent location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

We booked this trip through third party. The price was good but by the time we checked out, we were charged another $50/night ($32 for parking and $17 resort fee), although the resort gave us a break by not charging us for the resort fee as we arrived for a late check-in and early check-out. When we inquired about the extra charges, we were informed that if we had booked our accomodation directly through them our parking and resort fee would have been included. Doesn't that defeat the purpose of booking through a third party for a good price?

The location is great; close to airport, Old Town and Sea World. The beaches were clean and the view of the surrounding areas beautiful. The staff were all very friendly. The room was dated; large gauge on the wall and the vanity mirror vandalized. The shower above the tub was water damaged. The beds very confortable and our view was the parking lot although we were within walking distance to the beach.

Room Tip: Rooms by the beach is awesome but you'll need to book through them (not third party) to stay at...

This is a beautiful place to stay. Very tropical with updated rooms and amenities. Best part---the parking. Nothing better than getting back to your room late and parking right at your door! The bungalow style rooms really are the way to go. No elevators or people walking in front of your window...and the patio in back with your own chairs and mini "yard" truly is enjoyable!

The hotel was very nice and the food was excellent. Loved the setting. We rented bicycles and rode across the causeway to the ocean. I do think that the bikes should have been free for guests. We spent $60 to rent two bikes for 4 hours. The adult pool was also very refreshing and the hot tub was great. I wish I had had more time to enjoy some of the amenities such as the tennis courts and the boche courts. +

We choose this resort style hotel ahead of some of the downtown hotels.The rooms are a little dated but large and comfortable.It would appear more geared to conference business and the staff in the Barefoot Grill were not attentive and disinterested.The food here is poor and expensive, as are the drinks.Both criticisms are less likely to worry the conference crowd who are on expenses....there are better options downtown

I booked this through hotwire because I wanted something close to Sea World for our family trip. I have to say, it was probably one of the best family trips we've ever had. The property was breathtaking! When you arrive, the driveway is lined with trees lit up with Christmas lights. There are paths beside rolling streams through the property with gazebo's to sit in. The property is simply amazing, and if that is not enough, the island property is surrounded by white sandy beach!! Absolutely gorgeous.

They have several pools and we swam every morning in the main pool. The design was so well done, the pool is surrounded by trees and birds. It was November when we stayed so we actually had the nicely heated pool and hot tub to ourselves.
We did have a glitch with the hot water in our room while we were there but the staff was on it immediately and they were so gracious that it wasn't a big deal.

It's very close to Sea World and our only regret with staying here was that we had plans and didn't get to spend more time at the resort.

Couple personal additions: If you are going to SeaWorld, the resort gets you there by water in peak season. It's not really worth bringing a car since it's $32 for parking per day at the resort and $15 parking per day at SeaWorld. When we go back, we plan to cab it and rent bikes.

Gorgeous setting, and immaculate kept. Loved the bird life - especially the night herons and humming birds
Room spacious and comfortable and well maintained.
Had no car but public transport more than adequate (loved the trolleys) apart from Sunday, but SeaWorld only 30 mins walk away. Taxis always readily available.
Not cheap but in line with hotels of comparable quality
