This was our first trip to FL and I loved it. The Helmsley Sandcastle is ideally located on the beach. We couldn't have had a better location. Our room, although dated, was clean and comfortable. We faced the pool and were pleased. I'd have been disappointed if I was in a room facing the parking lot. Staff was friendly and helpful. We were not at all impressed with the coffee shop, service or food. Our wait staff did not deserve the 18% tip that was included on our tab. The restaurant was not busy and it took nearly an hour to get 2 sandwiches, a beer and a soda at the cost of 50.00. Did we eat there again, no. Would I stay there again, definitely.
