We stayed at this hotel for one night, as part of our 13 day fly drive tour of Florida in mid-May, booked via Allied Tpro.
You can certainly see this pink landmark from many miles away!
We had a superior room on the second floor overlooking the side elevation and a small car park.
We checked in late afternoon and unfortunately we only managed to get a quick swim in, in the heated pool and spa, as a torrential thunderstorm (and tornado warning close by) then came in and limited our time outside.
Our room was very clean, well decorated and furnished and was slightly off the main corridor run, so was quite as well. There was a room safe, mini bar/snacks, free Wi-Fi in the room, free parking, housekeeping gratuity which are all included in the resort fee ($22). The two double beds were very comfortable. All the staff were very friendly.
We had both evening meal and breakfast in the Sea Porch restaurant which were very good although perhaps the evening meal was slightly expensive.
We certainly saw nothing that would put us off going back again and look forward to another visit when we next visit Florida and maybe stay longer.
We did visit Fort De Soto Park and fort nearby, before we checked in, and that is worth a visit - $5 parking fee.
