We have been visiting Hontoon Landing to hire a pontoon for at least 10-15 years and it never disappoints! The staff are helpful and friendly. We hired a pontoon twice in a 2 week holiday as the experience is relaxing, peaceful and you feel at one with nature. Make sure you pay for the waiver in case anything happens to... More

Hontoon Landing Resort is a must stay if you enjoy old Florida surroundings on pristine property. Everything is a ten at this resort. The employees, the accessibility to bring and launch your boat, the pool area, the gardens, and even the new cafe recently opened. The rooms are IMMACULATE and have everything you need for a short weekend or even... More

Do not pass the Dockside Deli without trying the chicken walnut salad, ham sandwiches and those muffins, yummy!!! Chef Deb really knows her stuff. Hats off to the staff member Griff. He was always very pleasant... More

Hide this place. Lovely area and lots to do. We fish a lot and this was the place for us. Also lots of wildlife so we are at home. This just might be our retirement town. Can't wait to go back and stay. Thanks Hontoon Landing. Looking forward to Feb - March 2017

Nice little place. Had hoped there'd be more places to fish, only a small floating dock on site to fish from. We just took the ferry over to the state park to have the whole family fish. We did enjoy our stay, the staff is super friendly and helpful.

The grounds to this Hotel are really beautiful and well kept up. The staff is friendly and they have a little store on site. The rooms are nothing fancy, however, they are clean and comfortable. The view of the river is wonderful and they have a great pool. This place is wonderful for the price.

The place was good clean with a taste of old Florida. The room was nice size and clean. The family and I brought our boat and kept it in the water at the hotel and made three different day trips to explore and check out the St. Johns River. I love this place and hope the management keeps it heading... More

On June 17,2015, my family's weekend at Hontoon did not go well at all due to a group of guys partying and spoiling everyone's peace and sensibilities. In my review, I said we would never return. But then weeks later, while we were in Montana, there was an incoming call from Deland. Hontoon's general manager April was calling to apologize... More

we had such a great time at the island, it was so relaxing. the only thing I wish they did was rent out the bikes over night and provided a small fridge in the cabin. but other than that we had a blast. we will definitely return.

We spent then 4th of July weekend at this wonderful resort. We stayed in room 12 right on the St. Johns River. The view of the river was fantastic. We watched alligators and fish jumping all over the place. I only caught a few fish but was fishing in the heat of the day. We will be back for sure.... More
