We came for a 25th Wedding Anniversary getaway weekend. It was wonderful. We enjoyed all the things we did in and near the resort. The entire staff was helpful and on point. The room we stayed in was ocean front and the view is awesome. We will re-book for a longer stay next time. The breakfast has a large selection,...

I've stayed many times over the last 15 or so years, and the Blockade Runner does not disappoint! The location can't be beat, with beautiful ocean or harbor views. My favorite amenities include the scrumptious breakfast buffet, the great pool area, easy access to the beach, free parking in the hotel lot, and shuttle service to restaurants anywhere on the...

Wonderful hotel, great amenities, amazing staff. High prices for bar and restaurant but, it makes up for in serive, quality of food and drinks. Get rid of the fluffy bar stools. Not pleasant to sit down to find them wet.

The Blockade Runner is our vacation designation every year. We will never go any where else. I love the fact its older and has a wonderful history and has been in the same family for decades. They go above and beyond to make all guests happy. Just walking in the front lobby I feel like I am in the tropics....

We were delighted with the clean and updated facility, the beach, landscaping, sound side activities and the staff. Our first visit though we have seen it from afar in past visits to the area. Exceeded expectations.

This is a fun place, with decor that reminds me of early modern Florida style. Although a little shabby around the edges, it is bright and clean and offers access to a perfect beach and lots of restaurants and shopping. Get a balcony room or splurge on the honeymoon suite.

The resort offers great service and a nice location. Some of the facilities need TLC (hot tub area is run down, water pools up in many spots around the grounds). A little annoying that you have to pay extra for an umbrella and chairs on the beach. But overall a great experience with a very hospitable staff.

Spacious room with tiny bathroom. Rainfall shower was a wonderful surprise. Air conditioning was super noisy but it was blazing hot outside. Gorgeous ocean view from our room. Sunday brunch was outstanding
