Casa Marina Resort & Beach Club Review

At any moment, you expect the landed gentry to walk across the oceanfront lawn, just as they did when this 13-acre resort was built back in the 1920s. This Waldorf-Astoria property is set on a private, 1,100-foot rocky beach, and it has the same richly appointed lobby with beamed ceilings, polished pine floor, and original art as it did when it was built. Guest rooms are stylishly decorated with Italian tiled floors, sleeper sofas, and teak captain's chairs that add a lot of warmth. Fluffy bathrobes, espresso machines, iHome clock radios, and luxurious designer toiletries make it feel like a boutique hotel. Two-bedroom loft suites with balconies face the ocean. The main building's rooms open onto large outdoor living rooms, and the pools have a nice view of the Atlantic. Guests also have privileges at its nearby sister property, the Reach Resort.
