I travel for a living and have had the great pleasure of staying in many of the best resorts in the nation. This one has all of the ability to be great but unfortunately it is run like a two but bed and breakfast that just opened yesterday. The staff that are helpful are grossly outnumbered against a guest list that puts the hotel at capacity. Poolside, I ordered lunch and a drink with a friend, 2 hours later her food showed up it no drinks. There was one poor server in charge of an indoor/outdoor patio as well as the pool area with a sold out hotel! I tend to be forgiving but there was nothing resort about the service one receives here.
There are great conference facilities here but again the conference planners and staff fall short. I watched VIPs at my conference get turned away to other nearby hotels that were not this caliber- these were VIPS! In all honesty these VIPs probably got better service at the courtyard marriott than this place.
All of this is to say is that this could be a great place but it isn't. I would never choose to come back to stay for pleasure not would I ever bring a large conference here. My experience with the service was very much amateur hour. It is a shame but this hotel does not live up to the Marriott standard.
