We booked a Villa for 5 days of golf. The Villa was okay but expected much better since it was on Kiawah Island. The bathroom was good, nice shower pressure and great shampoo, but the toilet was tricky to flush. The bed felt soft but it slept okay. The dishwasher leaked onto the floor when we arrived so we did... More

We stayed here in December while running the Kiawah race and I have never been so impressed with accommodations. The resort is highly reputable and although I was nervous about cost it was certainly worth every penny. I was hesitant to stay there because had it not been for the race there is no way I would have spent that... More

This was my 5th stay in Kiawah since the first visit in 2011. There were 7 of us ranging from one baby (17 months old) and six adults. We fell in love with Kiawah the first time we visited and continue to think of it as a nearly perfect place where there is literally something for everyone. This time we... More

Visited the ocean course masters week. Before booking, I requested if greens had been renovated and told that all would be good. When we got there, played with two members who were nothing short of embarrassed. The greens were a disgrace, some sort of disease. Our caddy could just say he was sorry over and over. All golf courses on... More

I spent four days here off season for a conference. I can't say enough about the natural beauty of this resort. It's gorgeous. But not for a conference. The meeting facilities were nice but small. My biggest complaint is the layout of the resort is vast and doesn't lend itself to getting together with other attendees. My condo was beautiful... More

My husband and I travel extensively, and we expected this resort to offer top-notch accommodations given the price. Our cottage (in the Night Heron area) was a mix between mid-range condo and low-end cabin, with the bathrooms in serious need of renovation. The interior was decidedly worn. Check-in time is 4:30 pm. We arrived at 3:45 and were told that... More

Every guest experience is very important to us. We regret when a guest experiences anything less than a wonderful stay. It is always our first preference to have the opportunity to correct or fix any issues while a guest is with us. Barring that, we always welcome the opportunity to work directly with a guest to resolve any dissatisfaction. We... More

Went to Kiawah island for a golf trip with my sons. Played Turtle Point, Osprey and the Ocean Course. Osprey fairways were pretty bad. Course discounted the greens fees for us. Very fair. Turtle Point greens had a greens fungus. All greens had some kind of issue. Course pro would not discount the green fee. His staff's response was "not... More

Stayed at the Windswept Villas; clean, but the décor needs updating. Service was great. The Ryder Club is a great experience; the food is great. However, I was disappointed in the golf. I played golf at Ocean and Turtle Point and the greens were in terrible shape. Turtle Point had fungus issue on most of the front nine greens and... More

For an amazing -- and EASY -- family getaway, you can't beat Kiawah. One call will have beach chairs set up for you, bikes delivered, or a shuttle waiting at your door. Most places can offer you either a serene escape *or* convenience, not both. Kiawah is the exception. With miles of bike trails, kids programs, heated/chilled pools, tennis, golf... More

This was an awesome vacation for spring break. Husband golfed, kids did all of the activities at the Nature center and craft activities, and I enjoyed the beautiful scenery and beach. The food was fabulous at all of the restaurants. The kids love the snack bars and ice cream parlors. Everyone was so friendly and helpful in getting us into... More
