Romantic Interest

The setting on the beautiful Matanzas Bay. Across the street from the sea wall, along which lovers can walk hand in hand, past the historic Bridge of Lions and the Castillo de San Marco. Every room is decorated with the theme of romance. Double Jacuzzis with candlelight, grand king and queen beds, and complementary wine is served in the room or on any of our porches, courtyard, gazebo or decks to sit back and enjoy the views of passing sailboats, dolphin, horse and carriages passing by. We are a full block away from the nearest establishment noise, so the experience is peaceful romance.
