This hotel had great service. it was a bit crowded, seeing as it was spring break, but the staff went out of their way to provide amazing service. The hotel is lovely, the pool and beach area are nice. They have a 45 minute rule at the pool, where if you leave your chair unoccupied for 45 minutes they will remove your things and let someone else sit there. They do enforce this rule, which is nice, because it is my pet peeve when people claim chairs first thing in the morning then don't show up at the pool for hours.
Hotel gym was great, lobby bar nice as well. It was unseasonably cold when we were there so didn't get to spend too many nights by the firepit.
The only negative was the food at the 4750 cafe. very mediocre, very uninspired, not alot of choices. The ambience was lacking as well -- they do have outdoor seating but like I said it was too cold for most of the trip and the room inside is drab and beige.
With the exception of Ft Clinch State park, the island itself is a little lacking in things to do
