We have just returned from an excellent vacation at the RC Amelia Island.
The resort is on a beautiful stretch of beach south of the town of Fernandina Beach. IMHO the beach location is the greatest "amenity" offered at this hotel.
The pool, fitness facility, and spa are pretty much standard RC issue (i.e. excellent). We had a couples massage, very well done.
The food was excellent, we used room service a lot....the food was delivered promptly, and hot.
The hotel is a little more than 1/2 hour from JAX airport, and there are many places to pick up sundries along the way (a Walmart Super Center, Publix etc.) Nice convenience factor.
The grounds are immaculate, well maintained, and beautiful. If our stay was any indication, expect some conventions/meetings and weddings, especially on weekends.
This is an older facility, but the upkeep is excellent. Our room was nice enough and housekeeping maintained it well, but it was modest compared to some of the other high end hotels we have stayed at. Smaller room than other RCs we've visited, the bathroom not as "grand" (for example no separate free standing shower as in many other nicer hotels).
These are minor issues, enjoy the terrific beach and the sounds of the Atlantic from your balcony!
