A very nice place to stay!
My wife and I spent a week at this Inn last year (October 2003) and we enjoyed every minute of our stay there. The guy that runs the place (sorry forgot his name) is very nice and accommodating. He really made us feel at home during our stay. The housekeeping was very good, the rooms very clean. The pool was very clean and not heavily used while we stayed there, so we where able to spend some quite time in the pool. The grounds are very tropical and lush which made sitting outside very pleasant. We only had a short 1 block walk to the beach. The only drawback was crossing the main hwy A-1A during the day, but really was not all that bad. The beach was really nice and not over crowed during our stay. We really didn’t need to drive much as everything was in walking distance. Also we could catch the local shuttle bus which takes you to all the local shopping centers. Also I would recommend using the water taxi as it is a nice ride on the inter-coastal waterway. The water taxi goes to all the popular spots and to the downtown area as well. The only bad experience we had during our trip was at the local fishing piers
in town. My wife and I enjoy night fishing and we went to the local piers at around 10:00 pm and encountered open drug use and drinking, which turned us off. We did find a nice family type fishing pier at Deer Field Beach and really enjoyed fishing there. Also I highly recommend the Cuban Restaurant off of Las Olas Blvd in the shopping center across the bridge from A-1A. The name of the place is Los Vegas Cuban, really great food! I would go back to the Green Island Inn in a heartbeat!!!
