Very friendly and helpful staff. Quiet and peaceful.
The $17.00 facility fee should not be charged during winter visits.
The staff was friendly and the location was nice.
The walls were super thin. We were awakened multiple times throughout the night as loud people came down the hall. You can also walk down the halls and hear people in their rooms. I felt like we didn’t have much privacy.
Great location right on the water.
Lovely, avoid on heavy holidays.
Loved everything about this wonderful hotel. Stayed from July 4th-6th. Will not book on a holiday again. Parents do not watch their kids on the property. They were loud, carousing & running the halls banging back & forth all hours on the night. The pool area was crowded & very noisy. None of this was the properties fault. Just not what I was hoping for.
liked that it was right on the water, liked that there was a bar and restaurant
didn't like that the walls are thin, had a room with a shared door and could here EVERYTHING if you get my point
Beautiful location on the river, nice pool though a bit warm due to the hot weather. Great tiki bar that served casual food by the pool. Staff was very friendly. Had a great trip swimming with the manatees through their dive center. Would not recommend them for scalloping tours however - it is $300 for up to six people and you have to provide the entire group of six. They don't put tours together. Older hotel but it was lovely.
Our only negative comment, and it is no fault of the hotel, the guests in the room next to ours had a screaming baby that started at 1 am and continued until 6am when we finally got up. Extremely inconsiderate of them, but again not the fault of the hotel.
Swim with the manatees!!!
The location was great. The hotel is right on the water and grounds are nice. Loved that the hotel had its own marina (Plantation Marina) with boat rentals and manatee packages. We opted to rent our own pontoon and we were so happy we did. We were able to find our way easily around the area and locate many manatees to observe and swim with! We enjoyed having our own boat and not feeling rushed or herded by a tour group. The hotel Marina was well run and everyone was helpful!
Great hotel with lots to do close by
My family and I really enjoyed our stay here. It's a pretty hotel and kept well. The staff was friendly and helpful and the grounds were beautiful. The scenery couldn't be better too. Went scalloping with a guide through the dive shop and had a great time. It was so easy coming back from scalloping, people cleaned them right at the dock for a fee and the restaurant prepared them with all the fixings for a great price. Delicious! So much to do in the area. We had a great time.
The toilet paper roll was so far from toilet. It was weird.
The location was absolutely stunning, the pool was crystal clear and the cleanest I have experienced on any vacation, and the dive shop rentals were a phenomenal value and experience. The restaurants that we dined at were phenomenal (though there are only a small handful of restaurant options).
Supervision of younger children is not enforced - the staff was called upon twice with regards to screaming and door slamming and horseplay in the halls. We were on vacation to enjoy peace and relaxation, sadly this was not respected by fellow vacationers. While the property was well cared for, 6:45 on Saturday morning was not the time to rake the pavement (a very loud and exceedingly annoying sound), waking the guests.
Family friendly resort the property was clean and well groomed. The staff was friendly and helpful
Unable to snorkel off of property even though four tour boats were anchored letting multiple people snorkel
