Slice of Heven

by written on November 12, 2006

What a wonderful surprise! I got an email from staying at one of this hotel's sister properties, the Jupiter Beach Resort on the East coast and it offered me a $50 voucher to try it out. We booked a gulfview room and the view of the water was spectacular. Sunsets are superb from the balcony. The staff was super friendly and great with tips on the area. Our room was tastefully appointed and had a full kitchen to boot. We didn't use it other than the fridge but it is very well equipped if you were the eat in type or just like to keep plenty of things on hand for snacks and drinks. The first night we took their shuttle (free) to St Armands circle as we didn't want to drink and drive. The restaurant choices are many but we settled on the Crab and Fin from the concierge's suggestion and it was sublime. Afterwards we walked the circles' many shops and stopped in a few different places for a cocktail or two. The second night we dined at the hotel restaurant Christopers. The view alone would be worth the experience at its on the top floor of the hotel but the food here was excellent also. The beach is perfect, the crowds small, and the entire experience memorable. I highly recommend this hotel as we'll definitely be back.

Unique Quality: Two great pools, multiple jacuzzi's, a Tiki Bar, and being right on the beach were all we needed. Close proximity to St Armands Circle and the free shuttle filled out our dance card. Fitness Center was more than adequate, free wireless, and a gift shop. A great walkable beach and a great walkable neighborhood!

Directions: Straight through St Armands Cicle towards the gulf. Located directly on Lido Beach.
