Wonderful! A review of Helmsley Sandcastle Hotel
This was our first time in Florida and we picked a winner. The room was very comfortable - ok it was a little shabby in places but we didn't go there for the decor! The staff were cheerful and helpful and the facilities good. The area was very quiet which for us, was perfect, a middle aged couple wanting a week of peace! But the nights were a little boring once the sun had gone down - we were in bed at 10 each night! Next year we intend bringing our 15 year old with us but sadly will not be staying at the Sandcastle for this very reason! The live entertainment was a single man with a keyboard which isn't really what I would call entertainment. The food was somewhat expensive which is probably why the restaurant was almost empty each night. Having said that, it was probably out of season being the end of September so this could be an unfair comment. Overall, our stay was wonderful and we really did not want to go home.
