The Sommerset- Back to the drawing board
Posted 28 May 2010 - 01:09 PM
One of the perks of our honeymoon was to walk onto the beach from our hotel room. None of the rooms at Sommerset offer this. I'm afraid that changing hotels will change the walking distance of the Bay Bistro and other great activities.
Can someone make recommendations for a hotel that has rooms that open onto the beach, but within a reasonable distance to bay bistro (where welcome BBQ and cocktail reception may be).

The other side of Bay Bistro is just empty beach property, and then you get to The Sands which is less expensive than Regent Palms. The Regent Palms and Sommerset are similar caliber resorts with the Sands being below them in pricing amenities etc.

*** there is a photo of the bride and her dad walking down to the sand, you can see how close the oceanfront rooms are, most resorts will be about that distance from the beach if not further back
The Somerset and Palms are right next door to each other and have some places you can walk between them. The walk from there to Bay Bistro would not be far.
Many people do a welcome BBQ/cocktail reception on the pool deck that is between the pool and the ocean...they set that up quite often, so it is very doable.
Hope that helps.

Years ago the building codes weren't as strict and I remember every month watching this one beachfront house that built it's pool next to the dunes right smack up there just loose the pool little by little until it crumbled and fell into the sea....not fun for the owners!
However, you can get oceanfront which will allow you to walk a short little distance to the sand...

Thanks for the info. You and Janine are definitely life savers for me. Which hotel is the pool deck apart of?

Here is another wedding where the welcome cocktail party was on the deck at the Palms

I showed the links to FI and he wants to have the wedding at The Regent Palms. I must admit the architecture is quite stunning; oh goodness, decisions...decisions....decisions!
