If you don't mind being a short drive from Duval Street and the Old Town action, this quiet resort is made up of typical Conch-style bungalows set among lush tropical foliage and perfectly manicured walkways that wind through sculpture gardens and courtyard pools. Despite its location along strip mall–heavy Roosevelt Boulevard, the 118-room property has an isolated, escapist feel once you enter its inner sanctum. The colorful rooms have white linens and drapes accented with pops of turquoise, coral, and lime plus lots of local artwork. Some of the bungalows have a sandy area fronting the water, but you can't quite call them a beach, as there's no access for swimming—this is a prime boating area. For longer stays, consider upgrading to a two- or three-bedroom cottage. The largest of them rise to three stories and offer pretty water views. The downside is the lack of a proper restaurant (there's just a poolside café), so you'll be driving into town for dinner every night.—Terry Ward
