I recently stayed at the Black Dolphin Inn in New Smyrna Beach, FL, a brand new just opened B&B. It was truly a wonderful experience. I reserved a suite from their website, but we were given a tour of several other rooms when we arrived. I am glad we took the tour, as we got to experience the variety of suite choices. My wife and I finally settled on a wonderful third floor suite complete with a juccuzi tub right in our suite,our own private sitting room and balcony overlooking the river, unbelievable views of the quaint area, the river, and just a very serene setting. We thoroughly enjoyed the suite, the hospitality, the friendliness of the entire staff, the ambience, and the homey atmosphere. We were able to relax and just enjoy ourselves and the surroundings without being in the hustle and bustle of a "hotel" setting. We plan on returning to the Inn again any time we visit the area. My wife wants to experience the other suites, so I guess we will plan on several more visits to New Smyrna Beach. By the way, the beach, surfing, local restuarants, parks, and everything else about the area completed our vacation experince. We highly recommend the BLACK DOLPHIN INN for anyone who wants the total quiet and enjoyment experience.
