We were guests of the hotel for 3 days prior to a cruise of the Eastern Carribean which departed from Port Everglades.
This is a lovely boutique hotel and, while not luxurious, is a refined, understated, and tranquil experience.
Our room was located in the original plantation house and was quite small. It sufficed for our short stay, but had we needed to unpack for awhile it would have been inadequate.
Linens and bedding were very good. The towels were the best I've used in any hotel. Super! Toiletries were fine.
The room and particulalry the bathroom, however, was beginning to show signs of wear. There was some chipped paint and scratched furnishings: Nothing terrible but something that needs to be addressd given the hotel's standing as a member of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World group.
Staff and front desk personel were pleasant but not overly helpful. We sometimes had to wait for several minurtes for someone to appear at the desk as they seem to be doing double duty elsewhere.
The grounds are lovely and the waterside patio is quite beautiful. We enjoyed our breakfasts there, which although limited were nicely prepared and presented. The dinner menu looks nice aand we were sorry we didn't dine there.
On the whole, we loved our stay and would recommend the hotel to others with the suggestion to ask for a larger room.
