The staff was beyond friendly . The resort was magnificent. From the from entrance to everything inside and out was fantastic. The cleanliness of the entire facility. This was truly and wonderful experience for myself and fiancé . Take advantage of everything they have to offer from the jet ski and shelling tours to the spa at the resort.
I stayed for 6 nights here and it was very spacious, comfortable, and affordable. Laundry facility was awesome. My only complaint was an ant problem in the kitchen; tiny any ants crawling on counters and cabinets.
From the moment we checked in we were treated special. While this is an old building, its kept in great shape, fresh paint and new hardware. Great sitting out at night along the inlet. Quiet street too, no hustle, bustle. Would recommend to anyone.
2 complaints no sheets for pull out bed and no direction on how to retrieve voice messages on phone. This hotel is excellent and besides the 2 issues I will stay again. Great rate off season and wonderful pool and loctaion
I stayed recently at this place, we were 6 adults and 2 children in a 3/3. First of all, the service my family and I received from the staff members exceeded our expectations, they were always available to answer our questions and fulfill our needs. Every room in the Room/Apt was very clean and organized. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything you might need to cook a meal, there is even a grill outside the pool area, meant to be used by the guests. The pool and the Jacuzzi are not that big but it was never full of people so my family and I were able to take full advantage of it. The complimentary shuttle service is amazing, we took full advantage of that as well, all you need to do is let them know at what time you will be ready to be dropped off at the beach, and the same can be done for pick up and you wait about 10 minutes. This hotel even offers complimentary umbrellas, chairs, sand toys, boards for you to use at the beach, of course they are on a first come first serve basis so reserve them early in the morning. I will definitely be back, this place was just so great for my family and I.
"I would recommend this hotel, with reservations. "
Pluses: The cabin has been refurbished and was clean. Staff members were pleasant. The deli that is associated with the cabins offers very good and fresh breakfast sandwiches and other food. The location is excellent.
Minuses: The hot water ran out, and the shower pan pools, due to poor drainage. The cabin has very little surface area on which to put travel items (e.g., cosmetics, purses, paper/pens).
Gulf Coast Visitor Center is located in the western section of Everglades National Park.
