From arrival to departure, all was outstanding. We were made to feel like true VIP's, and the pricing was reasonable. Interesting and unique room layout, with international influence. Dining was even greater, with the Chef Jessica Cabo a celebrity in her own right (Hell's Kitchen alumna). Gourmet dining is the standard there and should be highlighted separately in travel brochures.

The complimentary hot breakfast buffet is great with a larger than expected selection. While the hotel was very busy with the large number of people staying for the flotilla festivities, the...

Rooms at this older facility are fine. Location, staff and breakfast are terrific. Outdoor facilities are quite nice as is the beach area. Very enjoyable stay. We will definitely return to the Blockade Runner for a future trip.

Nothing was too much trouble for the staff of this quaint hotel. Any questions were answered in a polite and friendly manner. Management is not afraid to help guests personally even if it is just to fetch ice or retrieve a napkin. Oh, and the food was out of this world good!

Wonderful Thanksgiving buffet, great staff to provide service to our table, even with a very busy holiday night. Daily breakfast was wonderful as well, staff works great to provide attentive service to each guest and replenish items in the buffet.

Older facility, but fresh hospitality from staff! They work hard to create and maintain a great guest experience. The property is maintained and has multiple areas to relax and explore. 2nd time staying here; won't be the last.
