I am overwhelmed at the beauty, continuity, additions, amenities and location maintained and with 50 years of history on this beautiful beach. Guests will be welcomed by a well-selected, trained staff, valet parking, new entrance built, and upgraded updated areas, rooms, and more. There now is a wonderful outdoor bar/lunch location, open all day into the evening as well, and the menus and food are of top level both inside the restaurant and outside. I feel the difference that change and experience has created, bringing together tradition that people want, with new and upgraded features such as the Spa, baths, pool, terraces, foe-mentioned valet parking, entrance, furniture everywhere is new, and I could go on forever. A boardwalk complete with showers for outdoor beach-goers to walk to reach the ocean-side area with beautiful, wide beaches, is within steps of the hotel back entrance/exit, and one can see the ocean and nearby W. B. life guard stand from the outdoor terrace. The gardens are outstanding and I dare say, the best designing and maintenance on the beach. The Blockade Runner has moved into the 21st century and with its' usual grace and charm maintained. I am impressed by the number of fund-raisers that they also host yearly, and it is truly due to the owners' compassion and love of the beach and its' organizations' causes, that drives these events, and the list continues. A hotel with a heartbeat, now that is rare! Check it out, and check-in, travelers, and I imagine few would have any concerns within their care.
