This was our first stay at the Holiday Inn as we couldn't get into the hotel we usually stay in on Sand Key.
First impressions were good and we were able to check in at 13.00! We had a two room Gulf View suite and couldn't have asked for anything nicer. The suite was very big and comprised a lounge with kitchen area, two bathrooms, two areas for hanging clothes and storing cases and one bedroom with two double beds. We also had a good size balcony with two chairs and a small table. The room was very clean and there were plenty of towels and toiletries provided. The only complaint that we had was that the air con was very noisy and therefore we could not have it on at night. We just cooled the room down as much as we could before going to sleep!
The pool area was large with plenty of loungers and pool towels provided but we did think there could have been a few more sun shades. The Tiki Bar opened around noon each day and stayed open until quite late.
The hotel has a very good restaurant in Jimmys Fish House and we ate breakfast there every morning, sitting on the deck by the ocean being entertained by George the "resident" egret! We also ate two meals there in the evenings and the food was very good. The music was loud on a couple of evenings and went on until 11.00 pm. We were well away from it on the 9th floor but could still hear it and we did feel sorry for people in the nearer rooms!!!
Parking was never a problem as the car park was large and parking was free with our room package.
Sitting on our balcony watching the sunsets was lovely.
Overall we were very impressed with the hotel and wouldn't hesitate to stay again.
