About

Nestled on the banks of the St. Johns River in Orange Park, Florida is this extraordinary resort and private club. Built in 1923 as the winter home of Caleb Johnson, heir to the Palmolive Soap Company, The Club Continental is now a romantic and intimate Hotel, Private Club, and Special Events Venue. Towering, 300 year old Live Oaks draped with Spanish moss, flowering hibiscus trees, sweeping green lawns, flower beds and gurgling fountains surround the centerpiece, a grand Mediterranean style mansion with stucco walls, arches, and red-tiled roof. Twenty-two guest rooms offer a reprieve from the hustle and bustle. Seven tennis courts and three pools await your playful side. Enjoy a gourmet lunch, dinner or Sunday brunch in the Restaurant. The Club is also a perfect venue for your next private event, whether an intimate party for eight or a lavish affair for three hundred.

Charming turn of the 20th Century mansion and rooms

3.6 on May 29, 2015

We originally booked the French Room but were upgraded to the Mediterranean Room upon check-in, which was more of a suite rather than just a room. We had an excellent view of the river and grounds. Sure, the place is almost a century old, and the walls, paint, old bathroom, lack of numerous electrical outlets, wait for hot water, and creaky floors showed it. Then again, that is part of the charm of the old mansion. The grounds were well kept, the koi were huge, and the gardens quaint. We would definitely book there on our next trip to Orange Park.


Quaint and Relaxing !!!

Had a wonderful time. Grounds and hotel gorgeous. Loved he history of the hotel. Clean and friendly staff. Breakfast was good but could have offered more. We will be back.


A dream

4.8 on May 27, 2015

It was the best stay during our round trip through the southern states. Everybody was so nice, it was all clean and very beautiful. I loved the pool and the little pub at the river


Anniversary trip

4.6 on May 22, 2015

We were wowed with our stay - from reception to checkout. The room was wonderful and inviting and the grounds are spectacular. We did not partake of any dining facilities so cannot rate those.


Club Continental Register/Frahm Wedding Week

3.8 on May 12, 2015

For the most part the room was clean. However, there were crumbs on one of the sitting chairs when we first arrived. The cleaning crew was very pleasant but seemed to take a long time to get to our room. It was usually much later in the day. This was a little frustrating because we had out-of-town guests that we expected to be visiting.


Wedding Weekend

5 on May 12, 2015

I stayed at Club Continental over the weekend for a wedding. Everything was fantastic. I would def stay there again!


Gorgeous property

5 on May 12, 2015

our good friend's son was getting married at the Club Continental and we decided to stay for a long weekend. Could not believe how beautiful the buildings and grounds were, what an outstanding property would highly recommend


very pleasant stay

4.2 on May 09, 2015

My husband and I stayed 2 nights and were pleased with the accommodations, breakfast, and the one dinner we ate at the restaurant. The one thing that disappointed us was apparent confusion the first morning when a large group (170 people) arrived for a breakfast event and the staff seemed unprepared to handle the large group and the hotel guests. Having said that, we would likely stay again if the opportunity arose and would recommend it to others looking for an old Florida experience away from the bland chain hotels.


what an amazing place to stay

5 on May 08, 2015

The room was beautiful and the view was even more amazing. The service was enjoyable and the location allowed for a relaxing adventure. The view inspired my artistic side and I began a new painting. I will definitely be back to stay here again Many times.


Definitely will be going back!

5 on May 06, 2015

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our first stay at Club Continental. Stayed in room with balcony over the St. John's River. Walked the beautiful grounds and the two mile stretch next to the river - felt safe and relaxed the whole time. Room had a small kitchen and sitting room and was able to visit with our family comfortably. Pub wasn't open on Sunday night but enjoyed a tasty breakfast before leaving.
