We loved this hotel. Adam at the front desk was more than exceptional. He made our stay more comfortable by upgrading our room. He suggested the Island Cruise adventures and it was AWESOME.

A very nice resort with everything you need. It could use a little more attention to keeping the grounds clean, such as raking the seaweed on the beach. It has a nice restaurant, two bars, deli, two pools, marina. If I could make a suggestion, it would be to make their small pool adult only as it tends to be...

We are happy you enjoyed your stay. We have a tractor that removes the seaweed from the beach. It depends on the tides when we can get the tractor out on the beach. The bay is a lot different from the gulf and we keep on this on a daily basis. Thank you for your comments and we hope to...

We stayed in the Magnuson Marina Cove 3 days ago for a week and it was lovely. Rooms were clean and the staff were very accommodating. Two pools and a hot tub and restaurant were all good. The setting, with its own private beach was lovely. The only fault I could make was the smell of the seaweed. A special...

I have stayed here twice now and have yet to be disappointed. If you are looking for an upscale hotel, this isn't the place. It is old Florida charm! Rooms are very clean and spacious. If you request a view in your reservation, they make sure you have one. The customer service was great! The only downside is the smell...
