Loved The Henderson – Great Location…

My husband and I recently stayed at The Henderson Park Inn and had a wonderful time. Our stay was much too short and we would love to go back sometime in the future. It is an adults only inn which we loved! That was one of our main reasons for staying there.

The Henderson has a fantastic location with white, sandy beaches and access to the Gulf. One side of it is located next to a state park and the beach seems to have more privacy because of that. Every morning the staff put out beach umbrellas with two chairs under each umbrella. There were always enough for everyone and it was not necessary to reserve umbrellas or chairs which was a great added feature. Beach towels were plentiful and easily accessed.

The breakfast was fantastic–very tasty, plenty of it and basically anything you would want. The chef made omelettes or whatever you wanted. Oh, and the fresh squeezed orange juice was wonderful! You could eat inside or outside on the balcony. There was a window of time for breakfast which was very nice as you didn’t have to rush down to breakfast at a set time. Boxed lunches from Honey Baked Ham were provided with your choice of sandwich or salad from a selection sheet. You could eat your lunch anywhere you wanted–even on the beach. After lunch, lemonade and cookies were provided.

Around 4:00 was happy hour. They seemed to have almost anything you would want. The frozen strawberry margaritas were very good. We took ours to the beach.

The Beach Walk Cafe was its onsite restaurant. We ate dinner there one evening and had a fantastic waitress. The gourmet food was good and we had a great time as we ate on the balcony. It is wise to get a reservation for dinner before the evening you plan to eat there as they get very booked and the more desirable times go quickly. We made our reservation before we left home. The Henderson has a great balcony area which is where the happy hour is located.

There is shade as well as sunny areas on the balcony with plenty of seating and even a swing. Small refrigerators in the lobby area are stocked with complimentary water, soda and candy. A coffee machine is located there as well. You can always find what you are looking for.
