We stayed here for five days and the the staff definitely brought in the extra touches like coffee and breakfast buffet, extra beach towels, and sun block. We really appreciated all of the nice things. The owner, Andrea, took the extra time to map out locations in the area.
The grounds were beautiful with lovely gardens and a pool. The place was quiet for the most part (until the last day when a loud family stayed under us, but that is neither here nor there.) Our room was adequate, but a little outdated. We stayed on the top floor, which had a lovely porch where we spent many of our mornings relaxing.
The owner was prompt in fixing a problem that we had with the door, and I felt like that was a bonus.
My only con is that there were bugs! Ants. I did not bring this to the staff's attention because ant traps where already in the room. I don't really find this acceptable and I felt like we had bugs crawling on us the entire time. For that reason alone, I probably would stay elsewhere.
In addition, this location is further away from the main attraction than we wanted. Papa's Hideaway is close to Duval Street, but a little more than walking distance away from the Mallory Square and the pier, which was where we spent most of our time. In the future, I would probably pay a little more to stay closer to the center of the action.
