Feels secluded, practically on the beach. Room was clean and updated. I know central Florida hotels don't think of themselves as tropical but I sure would have liked a little tropical fruit around for breakfast. But, I know, apples and bananas are cheap and you Yankees would be afraid of a mango or a pineapple, LOL. Otherwise, breakfast was standard hotel fare--oatmeal, muffins, bagels, coffee, oj. No, not fresh squeezed. Again, yankees wouldn't know the difference and Floridians can get it anytime. It just would make it a touch nicer to have fruit juice and something a bit more exotic. I mean, I'm on VACATION, ya know?
The only thing lacking-and most beach hotels do this, inadequate places to hang wet swimsuits. At least this time we didn't have dive gear! Hard enough to find places to hang wet towels but when you factor in swimsuits, well, you have to get creative in most hotel rooms. Between the strong ocean wind and it being a public walkway, the railing was a bit inappropriate. Nothing dried on the chairs outside the door and I was worried that someone would steal our stuff.
I'd recommend the Crow's Nest restaurant but be sure you don't dawdle on the beach and end up going to dinner at 8:30 or so. They have live, "entertainment," and you can't get seated downstairs. If you've done upstairs 2 days in a row, well, the Publix isn't too far to drive.
