This is a wonderful new hotel in the very beautiful and popular area of Florida's Emerald Coast. I was very impressed with the entire experience at the hotel. The lobby is neat and well-designed, check-in was easy and quick. The rooms are large and spacious; we had a "specialty room" with an area for kids that had a set of bunk beds with its own TV and XBOX, which was wonderful when we all needed to be a little less "together." The pool area was definitely the highlight of the hotel; it had a waterfall and a lazy river in the outdoor pool, a hot tub outside, and a nice indoor pool. The outdoor pool deck was very nice and well-furnished, it had access to the hotel restaurant and even had waiters coming by to take orders of those relaxing by the pool. And if you are really lucky, a pirate or a mermaid may spend the afternoon with you. The walkway to the beach was very nice, it had a ramp to make the beach accessible to all. The hotel restaurant was nice. The breakfast buffet was very good and easily carried us through lunch, so we did not have to stop playing to eat. The restaurant had a good, varied menu, and the prices were in line with other restaurants in the area, a huge bonus were kids ordering off the kids menu are FREE for hotel guests. Though the price was steep, we will definitely plan on making a return trip to this hotel because it has all the right plusses!!!!
