From the pictures, this looks to be the best all around hotel in the area. For location, it probably is! However, once inside, it looks and feels old and worn down and slightly damp. The location is great, right on Kings Bay, swimming pool is good, Tiki Bar is ok! However, the rooms let the hotel down. It does appear to be undergoing renovation. The onsite dive shop/manatee tour centre is very good though and I can highly recommend the staff and the boat tours that run from here.
