“PERFECT!!”
Reviewed 18 September 2011

Loved, loved, loved our stay here in September 2011! This place is heaven on earth. Great rooms, service, food and awesome beach! The only downside to the entire trip was when we tried to extend our stay at the inn and they were booked so we had to go home. We will definitely be back again! Did I tell you how much I loved it?!?!

My husband and I just got back from our honeymoon. After spending months researching places in Hawaii, the Caribbean and Bahamas I finally gave up and started looking in Florida, boy, am I glad I did. I cannot rave enough about Henderson Park Inn. The staff was fabulous, so friendly and helpful. The location was gorgeous. The room was cozy, clean and looked right out onto the emerald water. We loved not having to worry what we were going to do for breakfast and lunch and happy hour was so fun. Henderson had chairs set up everyday on the beach. It was wonderful to walk down the steps, sit down under an umbrella and enjoy relaxing. We ate at Henderson's restaurant one night, which we loved. There are also a few other restaurants within walking distance and many within short driving distance. My husband and I hope to get back here as soon as possible!!

We recently stayed at Henderson Park Inn to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. The location is stunning, Every room 100 ft from the crystal clear ocean. Amenities are great, staff cheerful and personal. We were somewhat curious about the little things. Wine, fruit and fresh flowers greeted us upon arrival, but also commercial grade toilet paper. High count Egyptian cotton sheets but poor water pressure and generic shower head. Still the included lunches and happy hour and most of all, excellent breakfast more than made up for these other little things.
We were disappointed in the restaurant. On recommendation from friends we made Sat night reservations. Food was far from memorable, service was from a well meaning but frantic waiter clearly on auto pilot. Lighting was awful. We are not completely sure the restaurant is run by the same people as the hotel but regardless it would be in the hotel's interest to have the restaurant meet the same standards.
While we recommend the hotel highly and will go back again we will not eat at the restaurant (Beach Walk Cafe).

Room Tip: The room pictured in the website is Room 309. In newer portion of hotel and on corner.

This is where we stayed for our honeymoon in May. It was beautiful and clean and the staff was very friendly. We loved the breakfast with the sweet two chefs who remembered what we wanted before we said it by the end of the vacation. We also liked the drinks, lunches, candy bars, board games and movies (all included). We stayed in the executive suite which was beautiful. Best honeymoon location ever.

We love the Henderson Park Inn! If you want your vacations to be go, go, go then this may not be the place for you. If you want to be pampered and relax on the beach it is the perfect place to be. We stayed in an executive suite off the main house and the rooms were clean and very convenient. The beds were uber comfortable and the balcony was large enough for a couple of chairs and a small table. Breakfast is all you can eat and made to order. Lots of options and you'll be hard pressed to be bored with your offerings. After a morning on the beach lunch is provided in the form of a boxed lunch from Honeybaked Ham company and while not the best lunch in the world is very adequate. Honestly, after being fully satiated with breakfast you don't need need much more for lunch and many days we were only able to eat about half of lunch. The beach is clean and plenty of chairs/umbrellas for everyone. Happy hour on the deck is very relaxing and just gorgeous. Plenty of good places to eat out in town to supplement dinner. Highly recommend this Inn.

My wife and I just returned from celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary. The staff goes above and call of duty when you need anything. My wife wanted some green tea and the Inn was out, so Natalie brought some of her own supply from her house so my wife would not have to wait. I challenge you to find a place with more dedicated employees.
