This hotel was amazing!!! I accidently booked the wrong night for our stay during scallop season and the hotel was completely booked. But the staff was amazing and went above and beyond to make sure they found us a room. They upgraded to one of their suites that had a no show. Room was very clean and view was awesome....

We went to this resort on a Friday and Saturday night. Had a wonderful riverfront room. The grandchildren had a great time fishing off the dock and caught many catfish and even a blue crab. Went scalloping on Sunday and brought home our limit. One of the best trips to Florida. Room was clean and we had a great time...

What a great hotel! We stayed in Villa I in a king efficiency room overlooking the Homosassa River. Room was recently remodeled and extremely clean. All the staff was friendly and very accommodating. We also rented on of their pontoon boats for a day of scalloping. We got great advice on where to go for the scallops. After a long...

Upon checking in, our check in lady collected the tab for our overpriced villa and instead of giving info on the resort, she simply said " no refund for early departure". That was our first clue! The villa located riverside was OK...except for the wet old carpet and the bathroom tub should have no mold and should be caulked. And...

Every year a group of 4 families head to Homosassa for scalloping. This is the first time we chose this resort. And we were thrilled!!! The view was delightful. It was perfect for the kids to go to sleep (safely) and the adults to sit outside and watch the boats come in. The dock was right there for the boat...

After seeing the website for this resort I was really excited for our scalloping trip. We had been to Steinhatchee scalloping before but never Homosassa. Now I would first like to state that I was not excpecting the "Ritz Carlton or 4 Seasons". I have been on boating vacations before. The one thing this place had going for it above...

One of the main reasons we chose this place was because it had a nice looking pool.... BUT the pool was not able to be used while we were there. The staff said that the water had gotten very funky and they were having trouble getting it to clear up. They were in the process of using chemicals to clear...

First and foremost we would like to apologize. We understand your frustration with the pool and worked our very hardest to be able to open back up for our guest. The massive amount of rain we experienced resulted in a chemical imbalance. We had a pool technician on site the last five days working diligently, the pool is now opened....

This was our third trip to Homosassa. Our stay at the Homosassa River Retreat was very relaxing. The pool was cool and refreshing on a hot Florida afternoon. We had a riverfront unit with a full kitchen. It appears to be an older establishment and the room was very clean and comfortable. The view from our porch was very nice...
