Sweet escape, excellent hospitality
I visited Pineapple Point for a naked yoga retreat in early January, and I was blown away- and I can’t wait to come visit again.I think one of the most interesting things about the resort is it is actually a collection of adjacent properties that were acquired so each building has varied architecture and feel. I stayed in one of the single king rooms, and it was very comfortable with a renovated bathroom and very soft bed. I also got the chance to see one of the premium guesthouses which was an amazing three story space with master bedroom at the top with a private balcony with sunset view (we had a workshop up there). The office has a very homey feel, and is equipped with a sunroom for breakfast and coffee, and has office space with a large book collection and access to a computer and printer.The water temperature in the pool is perfect, just below body temperature so it’s cool enough during the day to cool down after sunning (although when I visited it was fairly chilly for Ft Lauderdale – highs in the upper 60s low 70s), and at night when it cools down it feels warm and relaxing.The staff were quite attentive and friendly – they would frequently make conversation with me and the other guests. Daniel gave me a helpful tour of the grounds when I arrived, and both he and Jorge made sure to keep me and the other guests topped off at the complimentary happy hour. 🙂Speaking of the daily happy hour – it’s a great opportunity to get out and meet the other guests. It includes wine, beer, and munchies. Their continental breakfast also has a ton of different options, probably one of the best I’ve had – and everything was individually packaged for COVID.Lastly, I want to also mention the precautions they put in place for COVID-19 (despite Florida’s case numbers, sketchy enforcement and loose restrictions). I felt very comfortable and safe the whole time – the staff wear masks at all times, and you’re required to wear a mask inside the office. Out on the grounds, the guests were free to choose to wear a mask or not. Gym access required a reservation, but you were free to remove your mask that way. The rooms and outdoor spaces were all equipped with hand sanitizer, and items like remote controls, notepads and pens, and room keys were all individually sanitized and stored in plastic baggies on arrival.
