“Quiet & Comfortable”
Reviewed 11 March 2012

We had a nice overnight stay here. The shell collecting beach is steps away from the rooms. The pool is small. The room is comfortable. I think they gave us a complimentary bottle of wine also. It was fun.

Room Tip: Unfortunately, I discovered that I am allergic to the bites of the noseeums that come out at dawn an...

My boyfriend & I recently spent 5 nights at Song of the Sea. It was a cute, quaint, cozy place. I had by far the best customer service ever! The staff was friendly and very accommodating. I loved the view, and having our own private beach with chairs provided. Great pool. Cute, clean room. Great free breakfast & free bike use. I would highly recommend to couples looking for a romantic get away. I CAN'T WAIT TO GO BACK!! Thanks to Martha, Susie, and Katie especially for being excellent staff!

Spent 5 days here with my fiance in March 2012. This was an absolutely amazing vacation start to finish. The resort was beautiful, very quaint rooms, set next to the Gulf of Mexico, very romantic location. The staff was wonderful, very friendly and helpful. Rooms were comfortable and well maintained. Already looking forward to a time when we can return.

This was our second stay at Song of the Sea. We love this hotel for the absolute quiet atmosphere. This is a place best suited for couples, and a perfect place to go when trying to "get away from it all". We stayed in the suites with a beautiful view of the ocean. Bathrooms are clean and newly updated. The pool area is nice with ample chairs and plenty of sun! Song of the Sea is part of the hotel next door, so we walked over there during the day to the pool bar for drinks. The Banana Hammock is a must try! That hotel is much busier and we were always glad that our hotel was so quiet. With a busy family life it's so refreshing to get away for a few days to such quiet and beauty.

Room Tip: The suites have a beautiful ocean view, other rooms are near the pool, but the entire hotel is very...
