This trip was a Christmas present to my fiance. We have really been looking forward to getting away from the gray, damp days of this Mid-Atlantic winter. Waking up to the warm sunshine every morning was spectacular, made even more impressive from the bedroom loft of the Hemingway Suite. We thoroughly enjoyed sitting on our wrap-around porch with a glass of Scotch after dinner overlooking the Hemingway House watching the famous cats patrol the grounds. The hotel is central to everything. We walked everywhere from one end of the island to the other. The day trip to the Dry Tortugas was a special treat, and the depth of history at the Truman Little White House was a pleasant surprise. Cafe Sole and Azure are off the beaten path restaurants that we highly recommend.
I held the last pineapple in the rating only because I would recommend a more robust selection at breakfast especially more fresh fruit selections. I expected more being in Florida. But otherwise the staff was excellent, the grounds well kept, the pool pristine, and the bartenders at the Mojito Cafe quite friendly!By: Bob Connnors January 24, 2017
