My husband and I stayed at Marrero's and found it to be very relaxing. It is located on Flemming, just a block from Duval. Its location is perfect! Convenient to everything, but away from the nightlife noise. The house was well maintained, clean, and pleasant. Our room was small, but had all that we needed including a mini fridge, a tv, and a good sized bathroom. We also had a porch that led to the pool. Since we were only in the room to sleep, it didn't matter that it was small.
The continental breakfast was great. A variety of choices were available. Every morning there was fresh fruit such as bananas, cantalope, pineapple, honeydew, and strawberries. Also there was yogurt, bagels, raisin bread, English Muffins, fruit muffins, cup cakes, pastries, danishes, doughnuts, cereal, coffee, tea, juice, milk, and water. I was very pleased to have healthy choices available.
Every evening John provided a complimentary happy hour. Since my husband and I are not big drinkers we only took advantage of this one night. It was quite relaxing sitting on the porch with a drink. If you like mixed drinks and wine, then you'll like the happy hour. No "blender drinks" were available. So no pina colada's!
Unfortunately, the pool is the one feature of Marrero's that might prevent us from visiting again. The pool is clothing optional. This feature is posted clearly on their website, but my husband and I thought that not many people would take advantage of it. We were wrong! In fact, I think this is a very popular feature for most poeplen who stay at Marrero's! Many people enjoyed the clothing optional feature. We did not feel comfortable with being around nude people, so we didn't spend time at the pool. If you don't like being around nude people, carefully consider Marrero's.
If people had clothes on at the pool, without one bit of doubt, we would gladly stay at Marrero's again. Overall, it was an excellant bed and breakfast. Unfortunately, we don't believe in public nudity.
