“Amazing place, can't wait to come back”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

Stayed here September23-28 2012 and I can honestly say the staff here are amazing, after a mild mix up with my room the staff did everything they could to make it right and that they did!!!!!!! They went above and beyond to make sure our stay was enjoyable, after all mistakes happen and I feel it's all about how they are dealt with and handled.The staff are super friendly and after the first day the gentlemen in the Pro Shop knew you by name and always greeted you in a professional manner. Can't wait to visit again soon!!!!!!

This is the 4th time I've stayed at PGA over the last 6 years. What makes the hotel great is this: they have great golf, a great spa and a great pool, so everyone in the family is happy. The facility was freshened up about 8 months ago and it shows, especially in the breakfast room downstairs, the lobby and the opening of new facilities, such as 91 (a restaurant by the pro shop). The hotel is right off of the Florida turnpike and also easy to get to from I95 (about 15 minutes from PBI). The hotel, in general, is masculine leaning, from the overall style to its cigar shop on the premises (though its not owned by the hotel) but is feminine enough to deliver a nice, friendly feeling. There is a great bar area right in the lobby with live entertainment on the weekends. The bill can be a surprise as there is a resort fee and Florida State tourist tax but despite that, I consider it a good value when compared to beachfront hotels in the Palm Beach area, and more 'smart casual' in style than those as well.

Room Tip: If you want to be close to the pool ask for first floor and if you want a view ask for 3rd floor. B...

My friend and I were not staying at the resort. We were in a private home and just visiting the spa. What a great experience. First class all the way. We never felt rushed and everyone was so nice. After our services, we went outside to the mineral pools for the afternoon and enjoyed a wonderful lunch. What a great relaxing day.

Nice place overall for the convention I attended. Golf courses of course are excellent. Room and food okay, nothing to rave about. The issue I had was that even the front desk is not aware of new charges they are imposing on their guests...charges you are not advised of when you check in. Sends a very bad message as to who is in charge.

I wasn't staying at the resort, just visiting. On a Thursday, we went to the iBar and it was a pretty hoppin' place around 10:30pm. I had two Mojitos and they were great! Also tried the quesadilla...it was good but over priced. My mom ordered the chili which looked fantastic. Earlier they had great happy hour prices and specials..too bad we missed those due to flight delays :( It was a fun bar, some people were really dressed up and others were very casual. Anything goes. On Sunday we checked out the pool area. What a lovely pool with nice padded lounge chairs. The pool grill didn't open until 11:30 but they were nice enough to make us daiquiri's anyways. We had lunch there later and it was good too.

Great place to have a multiday conference. Accommodation and services are excellent. Great courses as well as activities for spouses and children. A vacation spot to combine with a conference and have something for everyone.
