We just returned home from spending Thanksgiving weekend at the resort. Based upon some of the unkind reviews on TripAdvisor I was not sure what to expect. I am sure glad we ignored them and visited.
We bought the golf/spa couples package and were pleased with everything. We played golf for two days and did spa for two days. The courses where excellent as was all of the staff we encountered on the course. The spa personnel were very courteous, very talented and seemed genuinely interested in their clients well being.
We also did a few group tennis lessons at the tennis club. Gabriel is an excellent tennis teacher (just meeting the guy is worth the walk to the facility) and exemplifies everything that is Turnberry Isle. We had great fun, got some good pointers, met new people and got a good workout to boot.
While the resort could use some updating (relatively minor) this fact was more than compensated for by the staff. I am contemplating calling the management to ask them what they put in the water or make the employees eat that has them in such an excellent mood.
We stayed in stayed in the Jasmine building and will definitely come back for another long weekend in the not too distant future. Five Stars...well done!
