Travel Review: Waterstone Resort & Marina

     If you have never been to the former Bridge Hotel, you will be impressed with the transformation into the Waterstone Resort & Marina. If you have been to the former Bridge hotel, you will be blown away with the $10 million plus makeover.
     With the additional affiliation into the DoubleTree by Hilton brand, the new modern facility boasts the finest in a boutique hotel that will satisfy the taste of the most discerning traveler, whether for business or pleasure.
     Nestled in the crook of the Intracoastal Waterway and Lake Boca Raton, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, the magnificent 180 degree views from every angle is simply breathtaking in the 139 guest rooms, Presidential suite, 10 Executive Suites all with private balconies, decorated in a modern crisp white and ocean blue color scheme.
     The inspiration of the new name comes from the merging of water and stone throughout the entire resort, boasting custom-made art work, fabrics and furnishings on every level, coupled with a sophisticated coastal design befitting the opulent Boca Raton style.
     The former Watercolors outdoor dining area has been completely redone into the Waterstone Bar & Grill, with panoramic views of watercraft plying the Intracoastal and Lake Boca Raton, with a new 280 foot seawall for up to 80 foot boat dockage and walkway. A quick easy shuttle service takes you right to the beach if you prefer sand in your toes, and all types of water play rentals, jet skis, catamaran cruises, as well as many more are available too.
    The new Boca Landing restaurant replacing the check in and administrative offices has a glass enclosed private dining area for meetings and the entire restaurant opens to the sea with outdoor dining for breakfast, lunch and dinner, featuring local seafood, including oyster raw bar with shrimp cocktails, marinated conch and stone crab claws, followed by an offering of creative small plates, specially prepared meats and fish and side orders easily shared.
    Some examples include Snapper Ceviche, Filet Mignon, Steak Tartare and Seared Yellowfin Tuna, paired with such sides as Crispy Brussel Sprouts, Wild Mushrooms and Sauteed Baby Kale.
    The former Carmen’s on the top floor has been completely redesigned for private catered functions, including weddings, birthdays and special events.
    The entire staff has been trained to be ever so attentive to your every need, from the friendly accommodating pool area with a new oversized pool and swim-out, to the dining room personnel and of course, the check in area.
    The old drive through is now the gorgeous lobby which you enter from the south side and makes you reluctant to leave after you have been pampered to your heart’s content. It’s a great staycation for locals too.
