We really liked our room at Lighthouse Court. The front porch is a very nice place to sit and relax before bed, the breakfast is good, the grounds are beautiful, the bed very comfortable. I would suggest more racks for hanging clothes and shelves in the bath for toiletries. Great staff and drinks at the Mojito Bar by the pool were excellent. The hotel is in an excellent location, near everything we wanted to see and do.
We liked Blue Heaven for breakfast (eggs benedict and the omlette). Also the Six Toed Cat had a wonderful pink shrimp salad… a little spicy but delicious. Their Key Lime pie was to die for. Joe had the fish of the day sandwich, which was snapper and he loved it. For dinner, we liked Blackfin Bistro and Louie’s Backyard (on the water). It was pricey but upstairs you could have tapas and drinks if you were not that hungry. Also, drinks were served on the deck on the water. Beautiful view. We had reservations for dinner, but we were not that hungry to warrant the price…thus drinks on the deck. The view of the ocean is truly beautiful from the deck.
I loved the Butterfly Conservatory. It was just amazing. It is very close to Louie’s. If you have kids, this is a place that they would love. There are also tropical birds flying around you with this lush foliage everywhere. The sunset in Mallory Square is not to be missed. Also, Hemingway’s is a must see.
There were cute shops everywhere, but I was not interested in shopping. I did buy a cute mug at the Six Toed Cat.
The whole island is historically very interesting.
