Clean, comfy beds and pillows, lovely grounds, delicious restaurant, pool looks great, tiki bar overlooking beach and water. Refrigerator in room is a real plus and 3 chairs in the room is WONDERFUL, and a rarity in hotels. Close to Fort deSoto and Boyd Hill Nature Reserve.

Room had hair on the bed...didn’t look like they ever dusted! Ordered a bacon omelet for breakfast and they gave me a ham omelet. They did fix it after waiting a half hour. Rooms are seriously out dated.

This was an affordable and charming place to stay. It was exactly what it claimed to be - clean, bright, convenient. Playground for kids, pool for all and I even had a view of the water.

So let’s start by saying the rooms are definitely not the star. They are very mediocre and dated. However, very clean. Housekeeping is wonderful and very nice. You are paying for the awesome pools, hot tub, the (2) restaurants and tiki bar on site. They have snorkeling, jet ski rentals, and deep sea fishing rentals on site. Shuffle boarding, volley ball, fitness room and laundry all on site. You don’t have to leave much if you don’t want to because they have all this stuff. They even have a man made beach on site. Loved it here and will be back.

Apologies for the confusion. An authorization is taken at check in to cover any incidental charges you may have. If no incidental charges, the hold is released by us at check out. Your financial institution may take 5-10 business days to release those funds back to you. Best wishes.
