Very we'll located, right on the water with its own jetty's, swimming pool and inclusive water recreation equipment. All,included in the price.
Rooms are large, clean and we'll furnished. Good wifi service.
Supplied breakfast is great. Staff are obliging and very friendly. Great grounds and surrounds in which to relax and enjoy the ambience.

On the other side of,the car park is Snappers Restaurant which also,supplies great meals.

Far enough away from the highway that you cannot hear traffic.

We stayed here in early June for a 4-day weekend. We had one regular room as well as a two-bedroom, 2-bath, 2-story suite with full kitchen, big living room, and excellent screened-in veranda overlooking the water. The rooms were in excellent condition and colorful, and seemed freshly painted. The pool area is surrounded by flowering trees and plants. There is a game table area, board games you can borrow for your room, and kayaks you can borrow without any fuss. The breakfasts were quite adequate. The staff were excellent. The whole place is very well-maintained. Late-night check in was nicely accommodated. In case you like to snorkel, you're just a 10 minutes drive to John Pennencamp State Park where the boats take you out to gorgeous reefs. You're also just an hour from the everglades if you're looking for another interesting outdoors activity. There are 2 restaurants right next door that were great. We were very satisfied with this hotel.

Room Tip: Pick a room that overlooks the water.

Our room was supposed to be ready at 3:00, and it wasn't ready until after 5:00. The staff was not friendly and very rude when we tried to check in. The boat rental property next door was amazing, the boats in nice condition and the staff very helpful. Overall I wouldn't go back to this particular hotel.

We traveled from Ireland and stay here for 6 nights at the end of June. What a place!!!!! The views were amazing, the room/suite was fantastic and clean. Plenty of room for a family of 4. The breakfast in the morning was nice and light not to mention very tasty too. The staff were really helpful and super friendly. The kids loved the pool and looking out for all the lizards that were around the property. kept them busy for hours. There was also free use of the pedal boats and kayaks, and they even had a gas BBQ to use if you felt like cooking up a little lunch or dinner. The restaurant next door was really good and always busy which is a good sign. The sports bar was really good too. The whole stay was fantastic the only down side was we could stay longer.

Booked an overnight stay on the way to Key West. The room was spacious, clean, and nestled away on a property with a nice ocean view (the water at the dock was still and smelly during our stay.) Screened in porch was a plus. The gardens and walkways weren't very large but I enjoyed the landscaping, appreciated the covered parking too. The pool was small but nice. It was quiet, laid back, and had great wifi for the kids (14 and 12). The continental breakfast was sufficient to get you started. Snapper's restaurant was a short walk away. Would definitely stay again.

We stayed at the Dove Creek Lodge on July 17 on our way to Key West. I would heartily recommend this hotel. The rooms are well appointed and clean. The staff was very accommodating. There is a restaurant next door that is very good. Not only did we have a nice stay the buffet breakfast at the Lodge the next morning definitely surpassed the norm. We would stay again.

This place is fantastic. They kindly upgraded us to the “Mango Suite” which has two floors, a kitchen, living room, two bedrooms, a little office overlooking the ocean and a screened in balcony on the ocean. The place was perfect. Clean, quiet and impeccably maintained. It has a nice hot tub, a great pool and park-like grounds with hammocks, chairs and benches. Complimentary kayaks are right at the dock. Paddle to the right and go up Dove Creek. Spectacular. Breakfast was superb, especially their trademark key lime parfaits.
