Pros: The gardens on the property were beautiful and the hotel had this old world charm, although in places it is showing its age and needs to be refurbished. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful and the food at Essensia is very good, although expensive.
Cons: There were no beach umbrellas which was very disappointing as we were unable to be by the ocean as it was extremely hot and sunny. This was our main reason for travelling to Florida. The construction from the hotel going up beside it is terrible. If we could have been in the shade by the ocean, this would not have mattered as it was far enough away that the noise would not be an issue. However, we were forced to try to find two places by the pool in the shade and listen to construction which was hardly what you want on a holiday. There was a wedding there on our last night and the noise from the reception was very loud all night keeping us awake. There are no balconies and the windows in the room don't open. The rooms are very small. The area it is in has nothing close by to walk to.
