Laid back comfort. Natural beauty. Hontoon Landing grabbed us at first sight. Lovingly maintained property has Old Florida ambiance right on the St John's River. Birds, gators, manatee viewing from one of the many decks and tables around the property. Nice pool. Steps to the Hontoon Island State Park ferry, where we rented kayaks and walked the trails. We had...

Wonderful boat trip on a remote part of St Johns River. Beautiful scenery, lots of birds, alligators, and a very knowledgable and personable tour guide. Great ride and a great value. The staff is friendly and welcoming. Scenic drive from Orlando. Allow enough time as the drive takes longer than one would think

Although we trust TA reviews, we're always a bit concerned going to a "fishing camp"; what is paradise for some can be a bit "rustic" for others. We have been to many marina/hotel places that are great for what they provide, which is access to a good fishing site and a bed and bath, but still are a bit moldy...

My husband and I stayed in the Captain's Suite a couple weeks ago and it was absolutely beautiful!! The view of the St. John's River, and the sunsets and sunrises you can watch from the deck are beyond memorable. The photos of the suite on the hotel's website do not do the room justice! It is HUGE, and the kitchen...

Stayed there and took a boat ride around the island. Great birds and other wildlife. The rooms were clean and the property well maintained but it is a stretch to call this place a resort. The rooms lack some if the basics such as a coffee maker or hair dryer. There is no restaurant, nearest one is miles away. However...

There is not one thing negative to say about Hontoon Landing and Marina. We found Hontoon Landing on the internet. What a wonderful surprise. We stayed in the Captain's Suite. This suite has a private lanai/deck that overlooks the river. Every morning while having coffee we saw an amazing array of birds, sometimes an alligator and the beauty of Hontoon...

we found out about Hontoon Landing on the internet while searching for something different than we had been using on the west coast of Florida; staff is very friendly and helpful; Hontoon is on a bend of the St. Johns river south of Lake George, outside of Deland, Fla.
