We stayed here in winter 2012 and it was lovely, not one complaint. It's a beautiful hotel with amazing grounds. Great service and food. I booked on a discount site and it came with breakfast vouchers. I feel like we got a lot for the money. The pool is beautiful, first time in a lazy river! Lunch at the pool was good but pricey, not really worth it. 5th ave is super close and there are delicious restaurants there, very elegant little city for Florida!
The beach is nice, especially in the evening when the sun is setting. But it's a public beach. I was happy to have the privacy and peace and quiet of the pool. There is a spa and gym as well.
Our room was big, beautiful bathroom, no view but agin we didn't pay much for our room. If you can afford the beach front resorts, go for it. But if you're on a budget this place is perfect.More
