Stayed here for three nights as part of a small executive retreat. We were treated exceptionally well. The event staff were very responsive, both before we arrived at the property, and while at the property. We booked Hughes Cottage for our meetings, and it is a truly delightful spot for a small group. The food (we did one dinner, 2 breakfasts and 2 lunches) was exceptional. The dinner, which we had family style was a true highlight. The catering team was very accommodating with time changes, leaving breakfast coffee and pastries for the morning, menu changes etc. Staff were very responsive, and there always seemed to be staff around - which is unusual given our group size was less than 10 (not usually the size group that gets much attention from most properties). Ignore previous reviewers that have commented negatively about price and meeting staff. This property is typically priced for what it does and the level it is at. I would rate the quality of the event staff well above the competition.
Accommodations were lovely - I had an ocean side room on the 5th floor (and would highly recommend both). The room was spacious and comfortable with everything I needed - and quite large. I'm typing this while having breakfast on my deck overlooking the golf course and the ocean - quite magic.
Do make sure you walk/run through the adjacent state park. The views are simply stunning and the trails well marked and easy. Staff are quick to help you find the route that will suit your time/stamina and were very welcoming when we returned with water.
Two minor downsides - the Lodge is clearly an "in demand" wedding venue, so a large part of the property was turned over to weddings on both weekend days. Not overly disruptive, but walking to the pool in swimsuit and flip flops past a gorgeous wedding feels awkward. Additionally, the bbqs being used for the wedding today are so smokey that my eyes are burning. Not sure that the bbqs needed to be located on the Lodge side of the lawn?? Only other minor downside was that when I had my patio door open, and the neighbours were on their patio- I could hear every word of their conversation. Again, not a huge issue, but somehow reduced the privacy feel.
Regardless, a top notch destination. Would highly recommend for events, and adult oriented stays.
