We were there for only 2 nights, primarily for the opportunity to play the Ocean course. We stayed in the villas which were quite comfortable and provided a more laid back atmosphere. Food on the island was excellent. Golf was terrific. Courses were in excellent shape and a real challenge. Everything we could have hoped for. I strongly recommend it.... More

We are frequent travelers who have stayed in all types of hotels, from the low end to the very high end to timeshare locations. This is hands down one of the very best experiences I have ever had. The rooms were immaculate, the hotel was relaxing, but upscale. We traveled with our three children (aged 6, 2 and 4 months).... More

Outstanding! I'd recommend to all military. They offer a military discount certain times of the year. Great for families...we had 2 adults and 3 children (2 of them teenagers) comfortably in the same room. Indoor pool and fitness center were great. HIGHLY recommend renting bikes and riding on the beach (lots of shells, birds, and fresh air)! The island bike... More

My husband and I stayed at the Sanctuary for our 30th anniversary. The weather was horrible but we had a wonderful experience anyway. The staff upgraded us to an ocean front room. It was lovely and had all the amenities one could want. Reminded me of the Four Seasons. The manager sent a bottle of champayne to us and wished... More

My husband and I went to the Sanctuary Resort for a Weekend of Jazz. It was an amazing experience. The staff was warm, friendly and extremely helpful. The rooms were comfortable and well appointed. My best experience while there was sitting on the balcony in my robe listening to the concert and watching the beautiful stars in the sky. I... More

This hotel is remote and "off the beaten path", but one of the nicest places we have ever stayed. The rooms are very clean and comfortable and the staff is well trained, polite and accommodating. We were there for the first annual Jazz Festival. My wife and I were fortunate enough to meet Earl Klugh personally in the lobby. He... More

Most beautiful, well decorated and appointed, professionally managed, friendly staffed resort. Our room was magnificent - large, two balconies, oceanfront. A bottle of wine arrived just after we checked in with Happy Anniverary wishes. Great dining, large and accommodating menus, many exceptional restaurants on site, pristine cleanliness, well manicured grounds and a staff that paid exceptional attention to making every... More

We had a wonderful time. We were celebrating my husband's birthday. He loved it and several times said, "we're coming back". What a beautiful place. One thing I noted was how happy the employees are. They truly love working there.

Stayed at the Premier Quality Resort Villa to attend a wedding reception the last weekend in October (the most expensive villa offered by the resort). What a disappointment! It began with our arrival....the lighting around the villas is very poor and got worse when we had to carry our luggage up one floor to get to the elevator to our... More

This was our third trip to Kiawah Island Golf Resort. We stayed in the Villas which is a great family value. We brought our children and grandchildren last year and it worked out great with the kitchen. So we decided to do the Villas once again. Usually while my husband is on one of the five beautiful golf courses I... More
