We stayed here June 9-14 and I can honestly say it was everything I had hoped it would be. The grounds and amenities are first rate, but what makes it special is the staff. The guys at the pool and beach are so friendly and helpful that you feel like one of the family. The service is great, but their attitude is even better. Every staff member greets you, which is amazing, since for years I was GM at a large resort and know how difficult that is to accomplish. My son called one day as I was lounging on the beach drinking a pina colada, and he said if I sounded any more relaxed, I'd need to be resuscitated. And while there, do yourself a favor and book a massage on the beach with Livia. It's expensive, but WOW, totally worth it. I have chronic pain and have been doing massage therapy for years, and she knocked my socks off (well, they were already off, but you get the idea). Really. Do it.
The resort is several blocks from Duval St., but easily walkable, and if you poop out there's always a pedicab or taxi close by. Beware the pedicabs though, they're spendy.
Casa Marina gets four thumbs up from us.
