Then we went to the old fort, Castillo de San Marcos. This was built in 1695 to protect the town from pirate and other attacks. It was never captured by force. It was star shaped with walls constructed of limestone shell that wouldn't crack. And the walls were over 5m thick on the outside. It had a gun deck lined with canons and sentry posts and a mote.

... drove to the fort. It was a big building made out of stone. We went on top and it was a beautiful view but we got sent down because there was thunder and lightening. Then we walked and had a drink.

Segway Tour and Animal Sanctuary

... br> We saw lions, tigers, leopards, lynx, wolves, hyenas, bobcats and a porcupine. One jaguar had had a good life with his owner and got left there while his owner went on holiday but he never came back so the jaguar suffers from depression. There were more stories like this. All these animals could be walked on a leash.

We weren't allowed to take photos because it would scare the animals.

Segway Tour and Big Cats

We went on segway tour. You were meant to be 12 to go on but the man let me go on after he gave me a little test. It was easy to balance on but hard to get off and on because it felt like you could trip over. We rode around the old buildings. There was one that was on fire and it had just been built. There was the Flagler College which was the first hotel and a very big old church which had fancy paintings and stained glass ...

... child. The first day was 6 1/2 hours. Ouch. That wasn't going to work. The next day was 4 hours. Better, but still longer than we were told it should take. We're going on our 3rd week now and I'm happy to say we're between 2-3 hours/day of formal work. The neat part is incorporating our current location into the curriculum. Example: For art this morning, I gave Tyler the option of 1) studying the postcard provided by our homeschooling program or ...

    FRIGHTFUL Nights of Lights at the CASA

    from

    My husband and I visited the Casa Monica late January 2004. Based on reviews and the great ratings we decided to splurge a little and stay at the Casa Monica. We purchased the Nights of Lights Package that included room, ghost tour, and breakfast. The hotel's location relative to all the shopping and tourist sites is fabulous. We noticed as we checked-in to our room at 4:15 PM that the halls were littered with the previous night's and that morning's room service trays. Also our Nonsmoking room strongly smelled of marijuana smoke and deodorizer.

    Loved the Monica

    from

    We went for New Year's and thought the hotel was great. It was a great location, the lobby and restaurants were very nicely decorated and our deluxe room was very comfortable, quiet and had a view of the pool. The staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast and room service in the hotel was superb. The only problem was that our New Year's 7 course dinner that started at 8 p.m. was not over before midnight because of poor event planning and too few wait staff. However, when we complained they took part of it off the check (the meal was very good). The parking was very expensive and I would suggest not bringing a car if you can help it or finding a local garage nearby. We will return.

    A very special stay.

    from

    We stayed there in April of 2002. Room was smaller than I expected, but the bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was very nice. Everything on the bed was changed everyday, even the bedspread. We walked everywhere, did not need our car. The first night there we had to leave the bar by 7:30 because of a previous engagement, but we were compensated with free drinks.

    St Augustine: Very Quaint, Great for History Buffs

    from

    This review is on a short, three-night trip with friends to St Augustine. Everyone has different preferences, so just to give you an idea about us, we had about 16 people participating in this trip. Most of us are in our thirties, but some of our parents and our kids joined also.

    A little disappointing

    from

    Wow, what a nice renovation! I figured the service would be first class

    Room dirty

    from

    We were getting ready for our wedding and decided to check out our honeymoon suite before the wedding. Glad we did. Stairs very steep, room had an odor as well. The carpeting was very dirty with a big spot on it. The balcony was about 15 inches wide to see city with no chairs.

    Not what you expect for $500 per nite. Restaurant is very good, lobby nice.

    Inconsistent

    from

    Casa Monica - lots of great reviews but we found the hotel and service to be inconsistent. It really is well-located for walking to sights, shopping, and restaurants. Our rooms were comfortable and clean, though not huge. But, the bathrooms were exquisite! Huge and beautifully tiled. The front desk service is very slow and not so knowledgeable. At most, only two front desk staff members were on duty and with long lines of people waiting to check in, order taxis (yes, in St Augustine, taxi cabs are not readily available and are extremely dirty!), it was discouraging for us to have to wait so long to get help. Not having a concierge really creates hassles. Also, we had to take a dirty cab ride to the Beach Club, which is a condo development. It gets extremely crowded on weekends, so beware! It does have a separate adult-only pool and that was great! Our biggest issue came when checking out. Someone added a charge to our bill that was incorrect. The hotel staff could not show the correct receipt, but a receipt someone had forged. Not only did we have to wait and re-explain the problem to staff and management, the charge was not completely removed from our bill. I do not understand how a charge we did not sign for and no receipt could be produced could be required to pay!!! However, we found the city of St.

    This hotel is the perfect location for exploring St. Augustine. Right in the heart of the downtown area you are able to walk everywhere. This hotel is beautiful and sight to behold.

    Casa monica and st. augustine

    from

    casa monica is a beautiful. located in the heart of the historic district, it is within walking distance to most of the sites and shopping. You can relax in a king size bed with feather pillows(the beds are so comfortable we slept like we were at home), shop at any one of the many small shops located within walking distance, go for a horse drawn buggy ride, dine at any one of the many restaurants nearby(some with outside tables accross from the water), visit the beach, or swim in their beautifully decorated pool located outside on a rooftop over looking the site. It is a very quiet, romantic, as well as relaxing place.

    BEST HOTEL I HAVE EVER STAYED WORLDWIDE

    from

    Friendly outgoing staff, best food ever, wonderful rooms and a fantastic location downtown with an oceanfront beach club that exceeded out expectations.
