The Worthington Guest House
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 9, 2012

The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Everything was very clean and well kept. Free happy hour cocktail reception on Saturday was a blast. Also within walking distance from the beach and several shops/restaurants. Will definitely be going back! Excellent experience!

Thank you for the kind words CarloG2012. I am very happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. Many guests like the fact we are so close to the beach and just a short walk to the gay beach as well as from fast to fine dinning within walking distance. We look forward to your return visit.
Thanks again,
Jim Durhan

A great place to get away during the cold months. The location is perfect as the beach is only several blocks away. The staff is very accomidating and meets all your needs. The pool area is a bit tight and hard to move around without disturbing others. The hot tub is small and it would be nice to have a larger one or another at the second pool in the adjoining hotel. A movie room would be a nice addition for those rain days or evenings.

Hell DaleC, thank you for your review of our resort. I am pleased to hear our staff met all your needs, and hopefully exceeded your expectations. Although we have more space in our courtyards then most of the beach resorts, guests love to put the loungers in the most sunny area, makes for an easy way to meet new friends. Our 12 man Hot tub does get busy at times, we chose not to have a hot tub on the alcazar side as it provides both courtyards with a nice ambiance of their own. I'm sorry we have no plans for a movie/video room, we do have a large assortment of dvd's to check out and take to your room. Thanks again hope to see you back soon.

Would definately stay here again. The location is great being a block away from the fab beach. The staff were great, friendly and very helpful. Rooms lovely and big with the quality of bed you would usually find in a top hotel (I want one!) and plenty of space and nice bathroom with powerful double shower. We used the pool area a couple of times and it was very relaxing set amongst lovely tropical gardens. I can't comment on the breakfast as we didn't make the 11am finish (suffice to say it was a very good night out!!). You cannot go wrong with this place and also excellent value for money.

The Worthington staff are extremely nice and hardworking. The rooms are pleasant, and the garden/pool area is a delightful place to spend an afternoon in the sun. Fellow guests were an interesting mix of ages and nationalities I will definitely return.

If Marie Antoinette had been a gay man, this would have been her "Petit Trianon", since she was not we claim it ours!

This place is a playhouse where you can be king during your stay! The guys who work behind the scene are the hardest working, most service oriented and happy we have encountered. They make The Worthington Guest House, the magic place it is with their smiles and greets every time you go past them...Thank you guys for all the hard work you do!

We love that every time we have been there it has new things to offer, this time it was a small deck uniting the Worthington and it's sister property the Alcazar. The rooms we stayed at 212 looked like it had jut been refurbished, the walls were freshly painted and the bathroom was redone, specially loved the new "sunflower" shower head! The reception area has also been beautifully re-done and the area where the continental breakfast is served looks amazing!

Needless to say we love and highly recommend this beautiful guest! You will not be disappointed if you choose to stay at this guest house!

Room Tip: Loved the shower in room 212...

The title says it all! Whatever you are looking for you can find it at the Worthington. Great pool for those wanting to enjoy the sun and a great hot tub for those who want to soothe a tired body.

Very close to Sebastian Beach for anyone who prefers being beach side over pool side.

Excellent staff who were always available to assist you. And they always did it with a smile on their face! That is hard to find these days!!!

Highly recommended. The staff is marvelous! Location is perfect and the cleanliness is superb. I highly recommend this gay guesthouse for those you appreciate good bargain with good service. Room 122, just on the first floor is accesible and at a corner with lots of windows which makes the room brighter and bigger!
