“The hospitality was supurb”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014 via mobile

It was a lovely Memorial Day weekend 2014...We arrived before the mad holiday rush (Thursday) . We were upgraded to a top suite. Great breakfast each day...watch out if you are dieting! Lots to do in the nearby towns to explore. Owners and staff were the most accomodating I've ever encountered. Snacks and homemade cookies free. What's not to love!

This was the perfect spot for a couple days away from daily life. We don't live far away so a couple days of pampering in a beautiful Florida spot was perfect. The staff was so lovely and helpful. The room was so Florida and luxurious. We appreciated the cokes offered to take down to the beach with our own little cooler. The details were fun to see and experience. Overall I would love to make it a yearly tradition.

Port D'Hiver is one of the best Bed and Breakfasts in the country, without a doubt. I say this confidently, because my wife and I own a premier B&B and we have VERY high standards. To start with, the location across the street from the beach is perfect for the casual, laid back vacation that most visitors to Melbourne Beach are looking for. The property is made up of 4 buildings clustered in a private, serene and beautiful compound. Step through the private gates your your greeted by cool breezes, beautiful landscaping, comfortable lounging areas, and lovely fountains. Every room we've been in is beautiful. They have been extremely clean (remember those high standards!), nicely furnished with very high quality furniture, and equipped with every amenity you could ask for. The breakfasts are wonderful, with delightful offerings every morning. They are also quite accommodating to special dietary restrictions, which is very important to a lot of folks these days. We could never drag ourselves off the beach in time for the wine & goodies, but they looked amazing the one time I was passing through. The staff are all friendly and helpful as well, all anxious for their guests to have a great time. If you are heading to the Atlantic Coast of Florida, then there really isn't any other place you should even consider. Seriously, you're not going to find anything nicer anywhere for any price.

Our Port D'Hiver stay was near perfect. The breakfasts were quite yummy! Great carmel french toast and all the egg dishes were terrific. Everyone was super friendly and helpful. They paid attention to details. Cookies 24 hours a day in the lobby, treats on the pillow with turndown service at night, appetizers in the evening, snacks for the beach, a computer in the sitting room to print your boarding passes, a warm spa-pool, bikes and beach umbrellas/towels/chairs to borrow, parking. It is across from a park leading to the beach. That was about the only drawback, that it was not directly on the ocean, it is on a busy street, though I can't take a star away for that. We had the Sunrise room, true to it's name--you could see the sunrise from there and the ocean, though you could also hear the traffic, not so bad at night, but heard it in the morning and evening. I think if you have an interior room, you may not hear so much traffic, maybe the waterfall/fountain sounds may drown out outside sounds. Though the sunrise room was lovely,, a large bathroom with spa tub. The place was super clean. Very cute courtyard. Loved it!

Room Tip: Interior rooms may be quieter, fountain sounds as opposed to traffic on exterior rooms?

I echo another review here: "constant attention to detail." We loved our room (Walter), great shower, exceptionally comfortable bed. Outstanding chocolate chip cookies available all day. Great amenities for the beach (towels, chairs, umbrella, small boogie board, bottled water, soda, snacks). Loved the heated pool. The people working there made sure we were never lacking for anything. They even brought our breakfast up to the balcony so we could eat while taking in sights/sounds of the ocean. Delicious food! Port d'Hiver is located across the street from the ocean. Maybe we could have left our French doors open to hear the waves at night. I'm not sure; we might have also heard traffic. If it were on the ocean, I'd call it perfect. Other than that, it's outstanding.

Port d' Hiver spoiled me. It is hard for other B&Bs to compete. The location across the street from the beach is wonderful. They give you everything you need for a day on the beach from towels, lawn chairs and umbrella to a cooler and snacks! The rooms are cozily decorated and relaxing. The heated pool with waterfall was superb! And OMG! the breakfasts surpassed the finest restaurants and were bountiful. A nice touch was being able schedule when your breakfast was delivered and eat it on your private patio. This is an ideal get away if you are looking for relaxation. I can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: The Mangrove Suite is my favorite.

I agree with the guest that mentioned that the rooms and property do justice to the website. We made a change to the Havana Room because we had access to the lift. Linda was very helpful in making sure the room was the right fit for us. The bed and linens were wonderful. The very large bath was rare for a B&B. Everything was spotless. We had breakfast delivered two mornings. Unfortunately, it rained the first day so we had to try and eat off small tables. The next morning, we sat on the patio. It was very private and you could hear the waterfall from the pool. We had small portions, however, they still want to over feed you. Instead of having some of everything, two entrees make for a very rich selection, pick one or just order any breakfast you want. They were very accommodating. If you need assistance with your luggage, you need to make advance requests. Thank goodness Mike was available as we travel with more than we need. They recommend Dijon Steak & Lobster Restaurant and we had two delicious dinners and it was excellent. The staff we met went beyond friendly to wonderful. Take advantage of the special that offers the 4th free.

Room Tip: The Havana Room is quite roomy and gets minimal noise from A1A.
