We stayed in a romantic Casita room. This is a separate complex of very modern rooms away from the main hotel (this is not well explained on their website). It is a short drive away from the main hotel or a relaxing walk through a 35 acre nature preserve on an elevated deck/walkway. We used the walkway to gain access to the main hotel for breakfast and to work out and loved the experience. The exterior of the Casita buildings is Spanish themed and surrounds manicured garden areas and a Koi pond. Features include a separate pool, man made beach area, covered hammocks, outdoor gas fire pit with seating, etc. located right on Old Tampa Bay. An added bonus is that the Casita complex and it's pool are adjacent to Oystercatchers restaurant (one of the top rated in Tampa). This hotel is tucked away in a low traffic area, but is close to the airport. Regular departing flight noise is part of the experience. We did not find this to be an issue. The hotel grounds are beautiful and immaculately maintained and groomed. Great fitness room on the 2nd floor of the main hotel. The breakfast buffet in Petey Brown's (one of the hotel's restaurants) is a wonderful way to start your morning. The staff at Petey's were helpful, upbeat and always smiling and gracious. We would definitely stay here again.
