Wonderful Experiece, Wonderful Hotel A review of Hampton Inn & Suites St. Augustine-Vilano Beach
We stayed at the Casa Del Mar for four days last week. It is a beautiful hotel. We booked on the net and crossed our fingers. It far surpassed our expectations and I highly recommend it to anyone visiting the St. Augustine area. As soon as you enter the lobby and take a walk around the grounds you feel like you have stepped into a more elegant, relaxed moment in time.
Our favorites at the hotel were the full, hot breakfast buffet which was laid out every morning at no charge; relaxing on the comfortable outdoor sofas and chairs which are set around burning outdoor fireplaces; and enjoying freshly popped popcorn, cookies and lemonade in the afternoons (also complimentary!).
Our son loved the hot tub and popcorn, our daughter the pool, gardens and "the friendly breakfast man". She was teary eyed saying goodbye to this english gentleman, who ensured all the guests were taken care of at breakfast each morning.
The beach is a two minute walk and St Augustine's historic attractions are just a few minutes drive away.
This is a hotel you will want to return to year after year.
