My husband and I were looking for a quick long weekend getaway within a days drive of our home in the Florida, Panhandle. We chose Innisbrook Resort and Golf Club after researching it's location and ratings on several sites. We knew the golf courses were world-class, and the property was built in the 70's and 80's and had recently been purchased by Sheila Johnson of BET fame. We were anxious to see the newly renovated resort as we know her "touch" is first-class and expected no less. We were assured by the onsite, friendly reservationist, that our 1 BR condo had been "updated and remodeled" and she was kind enough to match an Expedia rate, which was excellent. Nonetheless, our room was furnished with dated furniture and was not what we anticipated. They immediately moved us to a spectacular, completely renovated room with new furniture, great bathrooms, Euro bedding, granite countertops throughout and a lush, green view from our first floor patio. We were in heaven!! We ate dinner the first night at the Osprey Clubhouse/pub and were treated to excellent service and fantastic cuisine. The Miso Glazed Salmon is not to be missed and is one of the many health-conscious choices on the delightfully varied menu. Of course golfer "fare" such as onion rings(wow) and hearty sandwiches is offered and served in large portions at reasonable prices. Breakfast is available daily, as well as a market offering coffee, home baked pastry and box lunches for the links. My husband did not golf this trip but was salivating at the 4 golf course's beautifully woven into the magnificent 900 acre property. I did partake of a spa facial in the extraordinary 18,000 s. f. Indaba Spa. My facialist, Heather, was superb and the Hungarian products she used made my skin soft and moisturized. She included an arm and hand massage in her treatment, and I relaxed in the hydro tub with a glass of wine after the treatment. All and all, I highly recommend this resort. The staff is friendly, energetic and Shelia's efforts are paying off in every aspect of this resort transformation. I will come back and recommend to all my friends that they are in for an amazing experience while staying at Innisbrook Resort. Kudos to you Shelia for your insight to transform this hidden gem into a world-class destination!
