There's a lot of Old Florida charm at this family-owned beachfront resort, including a tiled mosaic of underwater life that spans the lobby floor. The experience here is personalized (the staff makes an effort to know your name), and the spacious rooms feel more like an upgraded version of your living room than a cookie-cutter hotel. Head to the palm-lined lagoon pool, where you can walk right out onto the 500 feet of private beach, or lounge in a hammock and watch the cruise ships go by.
