We recently stayed at the El Governor for three days for our anniversary weekend on Dec 6th. We had a corner room on the fourth floor with spectacular views of the Gulf and beach both from our beach facing picture window and side picture window. (The end rooms have two large windows to view the beach). Our room was well appointed with tropical decor and color scheme. We had a King with a full bath plus bonus sink outside the bath, a pull out love seat and comfy chair with table. There was a full size refrigerator, microwave oven, coffee maker with a butcher block counter which housed plates, cups, bowls and glasses. We left the door to our balcony open in the evening and slept to the sound of the surf rushing up on the beach. It was absolutely outstanding. We ate breakfast at Sharon's Cafe...a very homey establishment with excellent food and had a pizza at Crazy Beach Pizza. The pizza was very good however the antipasta salad was good but not what we were used to. The El Governor also has a heated pool, enclosed patio area which featured a band and Tiki bar in addition to an outside Tiki area with wet bar. We had read a review stating the elevator was slow...obviously it had been repaired as we had no issues with it. The staff also were extremely friendly and helpful both at the front desk and the gift shop. If you are looking for a quiet place to spend a few days and just "chill", the beach colony of Mexico Beach and the El Governor is for you. We will definitely be returning.
