“Exceeds expectations! close enough to St. Augustine, but the location is calm and quiet. Can walk next door to Commander Shellfish Camp for dinner. Can walk to the beach, beautiful view of the inlet behind the hotel. Rooms were impeccably clean, gorgeous decor throughout the whole place. LOVE and is going to be our new go to in the area.”


“The stay was more then I expected. The overall atmosphere of the place is peaceful and cozy. The breakfast was great too & I recommend checking out the back area with the fountain and walk way. They even had a lovely grand piano that I played for a bit. Definitely made the trip to St. Augustine a great one and I can’t wait to be back!”

“Bliss by the Sea is an oasis near the water. There was so much more than we knew about from the description. Such as walking down the long dock to sit by the water. And then we saw dolphins! Several of them! The living area and kitchen area of the hotel were welcoming and full of extras. Beautiful places to sit and dine out on the back patio. Two cute little pools. Big beautiful bathroom! Comfy bed. A lot of space for our things in the room. Lovely balcony. Super quiet and cozy spot by the beach…we will be returning!”
