What a remarkable place. No televisions in the rooms just peace and quite. This is the place you need to go if you just want to recharge, a step back in time. Take a couple of good books and just relax. The springs are a sight to behold, nature as it was before mans interference, I recommend the boat tour first thing in the morning, the sun rising over the river is breathtaking. We stayed three days and took the tour each morning. Once you arrive there is no reason to leave the park, the onsite restaurant is really good. The service can be slow but not unbearable and the food is excellent. We tried everything from the liver (not a fan of liver but tried a taste and it was actually very good) to the fried chicken (just a hint call ahead about 20 minutes before your arrival to the restaurant, it is fried fresh). My favorite was the blackend grouper my daughter could not get enough of the pastas. The downside is the Hotel was built in 1935 and everything is from the time, sometimes the key would unlock my door sometimes it would not, that said there was always somebody that would help open the room. Can't wait to go back.
