We loved our stay at the Song of the Sea. Going to the beach was so easy and there were plenty of chairs and umbrellas for us. Also the beaches were not super crowded, it felt very peaceful. All the amenities ensured that we had something to do during our stay.

excellent staff, quiet and peaceful, the only minor thing is that the beach lounges could be updated, old and some broken

Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
This property is ok. The internet was down for a couple of days. The stove in the room didn't work. The furniture on the patio is very outdated. There was not enough umbrellas on beach to sit under. People were allowed to put their towels on the beach chairs and leave them for hours.

Overall a relaxing place to stay. Continental breakfast was offered a good variety of choices and they never ran out of anything. On the minus side, there seemed to be too few beach chairs and umbrellas for the resort. We had to go to the resort next door for umbrellas. Also, the hotel's policy of collecting all of the chairs and umbrellas at 6:00pm was disappointing as there was at least another good hour of beach time available.

We loved the resort. Great pool, incredible beachfront. Very quiet with sort of old world Florida rooms, which we prefer to modern and busy. Beach cruiser bikes were always available and the breakfasts were lovely. Bonus: REALLY good coffee. Seriously. Our only complaint was housekeeping only happens every third day. We could have better handled every other day. (Housekeeping staff was lovely, it's just a resort mandate.) Overall, we loved it. It was a perfect laid-back couple's retreat and we wished we'd booked a longer stay.
