We were road tripping. Stumbled upon this Resort mid week. Reminded me of my childhood experiences on the rivers and lakes in the 70's. It's an older place. Well kept. Updated. Beautiful River and Monkey island is so cool. Great nostalgic Florida. Mantaees and Seeking Watchee springs with the Mermaids are close by...a MUST SEE!!! I would love to move... More

This is the second time we stayed at the Riverside Resort and we will come back. This place has a lot to offer you while at the resort. The marina has several captains that will take you fishing, manatee watching, scalloping, site seeing and dinner cruises. While having a drink at the bar, you can watch the monkeys play just...

After reading some of the other reviews I want to add that you should pay extra for the river view. We stayed in villa 4 and were in the bottom floor rooms closest to the restaurant area. As long as we arrived early (before the eating and drinking bunch) we parked our car right outside our room/s. It is actually... More

This is a tale of 2 rooms. The 1st night was spent in Villa III [where we stayed 10 years ago]. There was a slight improvement like nice mattresses and a flat screen TV. That's about it. Our room was so bad that we requested an upgrade to Villa II the next morning. The walls are so thin and the... More

Friends invited me to stay last weekend with them....we had a GREAT time! The united they were assigned faced the bar area. Their unit was a 2 room suite (not sure if all of them are..it's the only one I've been in!) with a full kitchen and a bar instead of a table to sit at. Everything was clean and... More

My wife and I were in town for a wedding. Stayed at the Riverside Resort. It's not a "fancy" place but it's clean, comfortable and very relaxing. Staff at resort and restaurants were nice and friendly. Food was good. Monkeys were entertaining. Overall, very nice experience.
