Overview

The Henderson Beach Resort, opened in November 2016, has a prime location near the white-sugar sands of what U.S. News & World Report deems the Best Beach in Florida. The resort also sits right next to the 200-acre Henderson Beach State Park with over a mile of additional beachfront.

Room types range from garden-view kings to special spa rooms with private elevator access, premium bath products, clawfoot soaking tubs and separate showers. There are also pool- and Gulf-view rooms as well as lofts and suites. All rooms feature Juliet balconies, pillowtop mattresses, 43-inch flat-panel TVs, coffeemakers and complimentary Wi-Fi.

In addition to the beach access, there are two pools -- one for families with a splash pad and lazy river and the other an adults-only retreat with cabanas available for rent. There's also a kids club with arts, crafts and activities, as well as a fitness center and a full salon and spa.

Dining options include sea-to-table menus at Primrose; cocktails and local beers at the octagon-shaped bar overlooking the Gulf; ice cream sundaes and root beer floats at Sprinkles; and the poolside Sea Level bar and grill, where you can cool off with spiked snow cones and popsicles.

This resort is Gorgeous and Immaculately Clean! It is brilliant and wonderful that adults only were considered in the design with an Adults Only gorgeous pool and hot tub!
