I only tipped the shuttle driver, Jeff, on the return trip as I only had large bills in the morning. I noticed a considerable difference in his...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review from your July visit, I will pass on your comments to Jeff as your review of his performance does not sound like him. In regards to the pool areas we did allow our neighbors in the surrounding condos to enjoy the pool area in the summer however this year we...

I almost gave up on the Handlery before I even got to experience it for myself. Read several negative reviews and began calling to see if i could make a change. But I'm glad I stayed here. I guess those who reviewed negatively are used to 5 star hotels. If that's what your looking for the Handlery is not it....

We were here for a Navy ship's reunion. The room was very nice but the bathroom might be a little tight for some. The restaurant has a very tasty breakfast (eggs) and a nice little grill for lunch near the beautiful pool.
