Reviewed 7 February 2012

This ia a grand old estate of a Pamolive heir converted into a club and luxury condos. The club has rooms in the old manor house and a newer motel like building right on the St. Johns River where it is very wide--a few miles south of the I 295 bridge.

I stayed in the newer building in room 405. The room is large and very comfortable with a gas fireplace and a great view of the river and I 295 bridge. This room has a king bed and lots of comfortable furniture. The bath jacuzzi and shower room is large with lovely tile work.

The room was very clean but the carpet showed marks from previously located furniture and probably should be replaced. If you like grand old luxury you should enjoy this place.

They have a good Internet site showing the rooms and Internet booking is available. The club is closed on Mondays but you can still rent a room for Mondays.

A Romantic setting at the former Palmolive family estate, overlooking the St Johns River (a few miles south of Jax). The Club Continental is a private club but allows access to non-members. It could be considered a non-traditional B&B. The complimentary breakfast is available in the restaurant only a short walk from the rooms, thru a beautiful court-yard. The breakfast menu offers a variety of choices. Dinner at the resort restaurant is upscale. Jacket preferred, tie optional, but definitely no jeans or shorts. The cuisine is very good (9 out of 10).
The cost factor is high but you get what you pay for. It's great for a romantic get-a-way.

Room Tip: The best room "in the house" is 305 ... Top Floor, on the corner with a fantastic river vi...

I selected this location as a surprise anniversary overnight stay. I had no idea what it would be like except for the website information and other reviews. The room we had, 202, was very spacious and had a great view of the St. John's River. I wanted to do a review on the restaurant but there is no separate area to post it. The restaurant is in the main entrance building and we ate dinner there. Excellent! My wife had the grilled eggplant and I had the twin prawns. My wife also had the chocolate velvet desert. Only problem was our waiter, Alfred, had problems communicating to us because his English was not as well as we wished. But we used other people to help us. The following morning, breakfast was included with the room and it was also a gourmet meal. The lady that served us was excellent. We would return here. The grounds are beautiful to walk around and are peaceful. The pub mentioned in other reviews was open but it was very windy and cool and we didn't see anyone sitting outside. In warmer weather it would have been nice just to sit out on the balcony of our room and relax.

Room Tip: The guest rooms appeared to be concrete floors and walls and there was no noise from other rooms. We...

Just recently stayed for the second time at the Club Continental in Orange Park, Florida. Came back because our first experience was so wonderful there. I can't think of a more beautiful and tranquil place in or around Jacksonville. The mansion is historic and elegant. The Staff is very gracious and the location on the St. Johns River is spectacular. Loved the food, every thing. This may become a destination point for us next time we're in North Florida.
Thanks so much!

When from time to time my family and I have stayed at Club Continental or dined at the restaurant overlooking the St. Johns River at its widest point, we are gently returned to a time of elegance, grace, and leisure that is all too hard to find these days and enjoy -- located in very special place: the secluded riverfront of "Old" Orange Park. Think of a charming bed and breakfast in an exquisite location offering privacy, solitude, peace, quiet, and the gentler spectacles of nature - but a B&B with banquet facilities, a white tablecloth/fine-dining restaurant with memorable cuisine, a team of gracious staff, and a rambling, well-preserved historical estate. The Club is a memorable destination location capacious enough for corporate events, large family reunions, and perhaps best of all, weddings on the river front -- all of which can take place even when many rooms are already filled at the height of the season. I have no doubt that my family and I will continue return again and again. Thanks for preserving all this beauty and charm.

Room Tip: book in advance and ask for one of the River Suites

Our first introduction to Club Continental was the website. It looked like it would be a quiet romantic place to spend some quality time together. We arrived on a weekday and found a charming Mediterranean style building set a beautiful landscape of very old Live Oaks. Following the signs to the office, we were greeted by the owner and a very helpful gentlemen. They told us a little about the Club and offered us a great rate. The gentlemen also showed us around, invited us to have dinner at the Club restaurant, and showed us a menu. He directed us to our River Suite room which had been remodeled recently. It was beautiful room with a wonderful view of the St. Johns River. We ate dinner and breakfast at the restaurant and both meals were excellent and the service was great. Our stay was quiet and exactly what we wanted for our 25th Anniversary.

While the view of the St. John's River from our balcony took our breath away, it was evident after spending several hours in our room that it was need of some long over due TLC. The size of the room was more than ample for our party of two, but the mismatched furniture along with what I can only describe as 80's decor needs to be updated. Our room was located next door to the River House, where a group event was going on. Fortunately, the sounds of music and voices coming from the party did not extend into the night. Which I could say the same about the event being held at the adjacent property. The complimentary breakfast was well stocked, but we would have appreciated clean tablecloths.

Room Tip: Verify proximity of the room by any of the general event rooms along with any large wedding parties.
