I treated myself to a weekend at the Kingfisher as I am just burnt out from work and needed a relaxing retreat. I traveled by myself and felt completely safe. I booked an Oceanfront room and it exceeded my expectations. I unplugged from the world, brought my book and read while listening to the gentle waves. They have yoga classes... More

The grounds and facilities are spotless,the food comes very well prepared ,tasty and in ample portions.A young lady named Natasha was our... More

I went to the spa and was very disappointed with my experience. The change room locker was dusty and my black pants got dirty, the shower is very old looking and they have those old motel shampoo dispensers. The hot tub was luke warm and it just was not a classy experience you expect for a place that charges this... More

It had been a while since my last visit at Kingfisher and it showed - as if pretty much everything had been frozen in time, with the occasional paint job or carpet change to keep things "fresh". This is a property that will need some much needed attention in the not too distant future, but still remains strong What I... More

This is a beautiful and tranquil location. It is our second time staying here and we love the grounds and the oceanfront. The spa services are renowned and frequented by guests near and far. When the local residents feel indulged with the spa, you know it is special. As for the rooms, they are looking a little worn with carpets... More

As part of my birthday celebration we went to the Hydropath and then to dinner. The Hydropath experience is fantastic. Relaxing, really unique, and fun. The hour felt like we'd been relaxing for many more than that. Dinner was excellent. Great wine list, beautiful view, all fresh, locally sourced food, and our server was passionate about food and the menu.... More

This is a wonderful facility with wonderful staff. I have never been disappointed in my Kingfisher experience. A room right on the water will help you maximize your stay. Every time I go I wish I could stay longer. A must do if you enjoy going to the spa.

Stayed for 3 nights in the Romance suite. The room was nice, beautiful huge deck, and very comfy bed. It needs updates though, it had a 90's feel to it. Enjoyed 3 spa treatments, the massage was just "meh" despite me mentioning a couple of times to use more pressure- she didn't. My husband though, had a great massage from... More

Couple of downsides: restaurant servers not very friendly, stair-covering up to second-floor rooms was worn... coffee-maker plug didn't work... TV didn't work. Not a cheap place to... More
