We have been staying here for several years and love the old Florida feel and charm of this historic hotel. The decor is tropical. There was a cold snap during our stay and there was a fire in the fireplace in the enormous lobby, with many comfy couches and chairs in conversational groups to curl up in. The location is great and we love to sit on the front porch with breakfast or a drink.
The beach club and pool are fantastic in every way. A beautiful large new pool, private beach area, and a nice cafe to have lunch by the beach. Staff and facilities are wonderful.
Some negatives to be aware of: the rooms are not new or luxurious, and they are quite small. They are clean and comfortable, but in a "historic", the smallest type, theres just enough room to get around the bed and furniture. The breakfast is adequate, but served in a dark and drab part of the lobby and not very attractive in the presentation. In Florida one would hope for a nice selection of fresh fruit, rather than just a jar of melon chunks. The coffee is quite good though.
Considering the prices, I think the breakfast presentation could be improved. The staff is efficient, but doesn't really go out of their way to be helpful or friendly.
