A friend recommended this little jewel and I'm so glad she did! Wow! The hotel is very clean and more like a boutique hotel. The lobby is decorated in an elegant Spanish motif as is the rest of the property. There was a walk in marble shower in my room with unique accessories and a balcony overlooking the pool. (Room 210). There is a restaurant on the premises with a very good breakfast and I heard from my friend that the dinner is good as well. You have to pre purchase discounted breakfast vouchers at the front desk. There is a pool and a nice HOT hot tub to enjoy. The beach is VERY close, just down a short street. There is a good seafood restaurant just a block up the street, easy walk. If you pre-purchase the trolley tickets, ask the desk to call the terminal the morning you expect to be picked up and make sure they know to PICK you up! Otherwise, you could be "patiently" waiting forever like we did! In hindsight, I wish we had of driven to town, paid $10.00 to park in the downtown parking garage, walked across the street and purchased the trolley tickets. Then we would not have had to spend $20.00 for the cab back to the hotel and we wouldn't have waited forever on the cab. Also, expect your car to get covered in reclaimed water from the sprinklers at the hotel parking lot. Nowhere to get away from it....not a big deal, just messed up my freshly washed car. I did hear from another guest that he paid $88.00 for the same room style that I paid $134.00. He got a coupon from one of those coupon maps from a Florida Welcome Center out on the Interstate, but you can't use it for a reservation. It's what I would call a walk in coupon that is only good if there is availability. I would definitely recommend this hotel, especially if you are expecting to have time to enjoy the beach.
