I just spent several days here with a group who became friends in Florida decades ago and got together to celebrate two milestone birthdays. It could not have gone better. This resort is just so well-run; everyone we dealt with was friendly, helpful and knowledgeable, the rooms were spotlessly clean, and the pontoon boat we rented for three days was... More

Great place and wonderful people taking care of their customers. Pip and Marylou were very hospitable. We spent the day on the deck watching the always changing river. If you like hummingbirds like I do you're in for a treat. The property is well landscaped with so many beautiful flowers. Beware of the noseeums, (biting gnats) especially at dusk. I... More

The marina is nicely laid out, with plenty of amenities for full time slip renters. There is a pool and nice bath area. The location is protected and there is little traffic from visitors since it is so secluded. I visited to evaluate keeping a boat there, and it would be my first choice in the Deland area. I understand... More

However, in the morning of our last day I spotted a large roach going from the bed to the dresser. i wasn't able to kill it.

If you like old Florida, you will love it here. While the accommodations may have been built awhile ago, they are clean, pleasant and comfortable. The staff is absolutely friendly. Renting a pontoon boat to explore the St. Johns River is a must. There is so much to see including a trip to Blue Springs State Park and up the... More

Jessie was a delightful and competent boat captain and nature guide. Great sense of humor and full of info and anecdotes. Saw gator, manatees, turtles, many types of birds, and human wildlife! A note to the manager. This is a long ride and not suitable for undisciplined children or infants. I would recommend for children ages 7 and up. Would... More

It was my birthday weekend. Hontoon marina is beautiful. You can fish, take a tour boat ride or rent a pontoon for the day. The owner really made my birthday very special. There is a store on the premises and a great restaurant down the street. We had a wonderful wonderful weekend and cant wait to go back!!!
