Alas the Manatee Tour season is basically over late March. But keep this hidden gem in mind at year end to experience this amazing activity. Ask for Captain Cephas. He is knowledgeable, hospitable, and a fantastic photographer if you give him your camera. After we returned, we truly enjoyed discussing our Tour and reliving it thru the pictures Captain Cephas...

Never having been to this part of Florida we planned two days in Homosassa on our way south on a gulf coast road trip. I really didn't know what to expect (though I did my homework) with the area or Homosassa Riverside Resort. We enjoyed it very much.....both the area and the resort. The resort is very reasonably priced. Staff...

We came to swim with the manatees. Our rooms were nice and clean and we had a nice water view from our "non water view" lodging. We enjoyed the restaurant and the lodging. We also booked a river tour and the manatees swim through the resort. I will see if I can add and rote those separately as attractions or...

We thoroughly enjoyed a month long stay from mid January to mid February. The two room unit in Villa IV was large, clean, and well-appointed. Equipped kitchen allowed eating in whenever we chose not to go out the the many great eateries nearby. Desk and house keeping personnel couldn't have been more friendly, helpful, and accommodating. Resort restaurant, laundromat, and...

Stayed there and place was fairly clean but no TV or Wifi in the room we were in. Monkey Island just off the shore had at least 5 monkeys on just playing around. We rented a Kayak next door which was ok. The restaurant was just ok. Our food was not great and my drink tasted odd. I would give...

This is a clean, economical hotel right on the water in Homosassa with two restaurants within walking distance. We have stayed here several times and have had very pleasant experiences. Both restaurants have great food with locally caught fresh seafood and drink specials and live music.

There are at least 4 buildings of rooms (villas). I stayed in villa IV, room 407 which is a ground floor room very close to the restaurant and check in counter with direct riverfront access. The room was nice, and included kitchenette. The living room furniture is not comfortable, but we were not sitting inside much. There is a sleeper...

Nice, smaller older place. People are great. Beautiful grounds. Dont expect a big fancy place. This is small and quiet. Restaurant okay. You can watch the boats coming in and going by. Or you can hire a boat to fish or take a tourist ride with a guide. Watch outfor seagulls overhead (yuck)
