Wonderful hotel right on the beach.
Posted Feb 8, 2017
I was recommended this hotel by a friend and I didn't expect such an exceptional experience. When you walk in, the decor is immaculate and in an old Spain type of style. The staff were all extremely friendly, knew about the town, and recommended restaurants to me as I asked. But wait, why travel anywhere to eat when there's a classy, delicious, upscale restaurant on the first floor? That's right, 'la cocina' as it's called serves meals throughout the whole day with fresh locally bought ingredients. If you request to eat breakfast at the front desk the night before you get a nice discount. 2 exquisite breakfasts cost me $17 with tip and drinks included.
I have one tiny gripe that I'll only include so that it can be fixed for future guests. I stayed in room 315 which is an 'ocean view room'. Well, the room, jacuzzi, decor, shower were all perfect but when I went to my balcony to view the ocean, I couldn't see it because of the Palm tree there. Perhaps it can be cut just about a foot and a half and the guests can see the ocean.
Anyway, look nowhere else when needing to stay in st. Augustine, THIS is the place. Let me also say that there is a bus that picks you up from this location which is free of charge if you've purchased the old town trolley tickets. So there's no need to pay for your own gas or parking!
Wonderful trip and I'll be back!
