Super hotel complex

Located in own beautiful grounds. Very accommodating staff who changed our room on arrival so we could have a patio as I smoke. Restaurant food really good and reasonably priced. Very comfy bed.

Very nice hotel for the area but doesn't compare to a resort of equal price.

Mother's Day weekend!

Beautiful hotel with comfortable rooms. Enjoyed using the croquet set and taking the Manatee boat tour. The reason why I do not give this hotel a perfect five has to go to staff on how they handled (or lack there of?) a situation that occurred in the pool area. Needless to say, their hospitality was lacking in that department and prevents me from marking this trip as perfect. However, the manatees are the stars of the show and are a sight to see!

Lots to do

Weather wasn't great, looking forward to returning when the weather improves and we can take advantage of the pool and river.

Great location and tiki bar

The place is in a great location and has a great staff and ammenities. The rooms however are only good. They have a humidity problem and everything feels damp. There is also very little sound insulation between rooms and any conversation next door comes through. The staff accomodated our request for a different room when we chcked in with no problem and gave us exactly what we wanted. The crew at the Tiki Bar arranged all of our tours and kept us well lubricated. All in all we'd go back and accept the small inconveniences.
