“Ground are Beautiful, Room was Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

While the grounds of the Omni and Amelia both are beautiful I felt like the room was just okay. I had read they had done a huge renovation recently but I believe they spent more on the pool and common areas rather than the actual rooms. I'm not saying they were bad, but they did not have that WOW factor I was hoping for. Amelia on the whole was very nice, the Omni is very large and spread out and it took me a bit to acclimate. I will say the service/Staff was very nice. Enjoyed the Sunrise Cafe for breakfast...pricey but good. Wasn't impressed with other restaurants on the property, they again, were just okay. I would def travel to Amelia again, but I would re-think my choice of accommodations...for the price.

Room Tip: Since this place is very spread out, I would ask for a room closer to the lobby, otherwise you are w...

The remodeling turned out great. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. There is something for everyone in the family ( shopping, putt putt, segways, golf cart rentals, pools and Golf courses). My family and I look forward to our next visit. We always have a good time.

Beautiful setting, and facilities. The pools are fabulous - both the "tranquility" adult only pool as well as the family friendly pools. This was a very relaxing vacation spot. We (family includes 7 yo & 3 yo) enjoyed the tennis options, kids camps, nature center and walking pathes. Great week!

Wow, what is there not to love about this place. From the fantastic pool and views and all the way to the enchanting grounds and paths, this place is something incredible. This is my first review of any hotel, but it is worth sharing. My girlfriend and I took a long weekend to get away, but little did she know that I was planning on asking her to marry me. Cynthia, the concierge at the hotel helped me plan an amazing time. She arranged for a room upgrade, dinner reservations at PLAE with their best waitress, April, champagne and roses all over the room that night, and even a complimentary Hopper (golf cart) for 2 days. Driving the resort is something out of a movie, but the overall resort and island is fantastic. Great food, facilities and lots to do. Highly recommended

I have been to many extravagant hotels, this one has a beautiful view, great service, and very relaxing. Now expect to get lost several times. Throughout our stay we were either lost or had to help another guest who was lost. They give directions how to get to the room but dont take you there so its very easy to get lost. As nice and relaxing it is and even though everything you need is on property everything is also over priced. I dont mind spending money I just don't like how they EXTREMELY over price everything.

Staff were very helpful, especially the tram drivers and hotel car drivers. Nature center is a true gem! Plantation property is beautiful.
Beach is beautiful and pools are nice. Restaurant food is good, nothing special. Buffet breakfast is very good and only $10 for kids. Location is a taxi ride from town.
Room is average. Our screen door was broken, rooms could benefit from an entry rug bc the hallways are open air and collect rain water in puddles. Ants in bathroom. Tub had a little mold. Average.

I'm happy to hear you received excellent service from our associates and found the property beautiful! My personal line is that the Nature Center is our hidden gem. I'm sorry to hear your screen door was broken but hope you reported it to engineering to be fixed during your stay along with the cleanliness of your bathroom. I do hope you'll return to see us again in the future, thank you for staying with us.

Excellent property, staff and all amenities. We ate in several of the restaurants and visited the stores on the property. The spa was very special. The pool was very inviting and you never felt your space was invaded. Pool service was great too. The room was beautiful with a great view. We had an excellent view of the July 4th fireworks that the hotel provided.

Room Tip: All rooms face the pool and the Atlantic Ocean.
