The grounds are GORGEOUS! All rooms have an ocean view and the "back yard" is lush and green one of my favorite parts of the weekend is the awards ceremony on the back lawn greens. The lobby is so modern.....South Beach meets Key West...best of both worlds. I have to mention the continental breakfast too. I travel all over the country for work and this is by far the BEST complimentary breakfast that I've come across. Every morning we had a full buffet of fruit, eggs, bacon, yogurt, potatoes and my favorite the French Toast.
