My wife and I stopped here more or less by chance last summer while traveling with our 7 year old. This year we came to Florida especially to stay at this hotel. The beach is perfect with soft white sand, and its slope very shallow; great for kids. It has a heated outdoor pool so they can swim any time of year and a hot tub for the adults.
Since it is a very small hotel, the facilities are never crowded or dirty. The rooms are new, modern styled and squeaky clean. The bathrooms feature a rainwater shower and designer sink. Hot water is never an issue as it has been in some hotels I've stayed at recently.
These days free, fast wireless service is a must. This was another place where the Lotus Boutique hotel excelled, my iPad worked faster here than at our house! There is no password or sign in page, your devices just connect and that's it. Also on the topic of electronics, rooms all have large HD TVs with the expected assortment of Channels. Noticeably absent are the adult and other pay channels one finds in some hotels.
This is not a hotel for kids on spring break; they don't allow loud partying that would disturb other guests. It seems to cater to retired people, couples and families. That of course is another reason why I choose it. The other guests are quiet and polite and more or less go about their business with just casual chatter. The hotel is in an area that feels very safe, so I wouldn't feel at all hesitant to take an evening stroll on the beach with my wife and daughter.
The only negative I can think of is the extremely limited breakfast menu which is just bananas, mediocre muffins, orange juice and Activia. This breakfast would make a Super 8 ashamed. They do have some really great coffee though! Still, I can get a great breakfast at any of several nearby restaurants so it isn't much of a problem.
Taken as a whole, I love this hotel and I will surely be back. I get as nice a beach vacation as I would get going to the Caribbean, except instead of paying $5,000 I only spend a few hundred.
