“An intimate setting with Mediterranean feel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

The smaller size of this hotel and club, along with the Mediterranean decor, present a warm and intimate feel. The outdoor cafe service is decent, but for the same price you can go upstairs to the dining room with formal service and experienced servers. The ocean view from the upstairs dining room is panoramic, and the white linen service is exceptional. The guest rooms are gorgeous with excellent bedding. The Lodge is a lovely place to host a wedding, and they have a beautifully landscaped courtyard area that makes a wonderful back drop for photography.
This resort is managed impeccably with the highest standards of excellence.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the courtyard and ocean.

I've been both a Lodge member and occasional guest for over 10 years - the location is wonderful and the staff is always generally friendly and helpful. Unless you live in an oceanfront home, this is the best beach location in Ponte Vedra Beach to relax on a mostly uncrowded stretch of sand - with pool, restrooms and bar/food nearby.
The oceanfront bar and (small) pool are often very crowded on weekends and holidays when the weather is warm - between local members and guests. I've seen many weddings take place here and it's a nice setting for a small/mid-sized wedding and reception. It's often breezy though and people can get "wind blown" in their formal attire. Recently updated gym equipment and remodeled locker rooms are a nice addition. Some areas of the Lodge are looking a little run down. The family pool is larger but across the street from the beach. All in all, the Lodge is worthy of it's #2 ranking for Ponte Vedra Beach hotels.

The Lodge was recommended by a colleague for a short night stay before a full day of meetings in St. Augustine. Although I only stayed one night, I am already talking about a repeat trip to spend more time. The grounds and facilities are pristine and the service is exceptional. The lodge is award-winning for a reason. Located directly on the beach, I enjoyed a delicious dinner overlooking the water and coffee by a firepit after dark. Every member of the staff I encountered treated me as if I were royalty. Thank you for a wonderful night's stay!

Room Tip: Ground level rooms have doors that walk right out onto the courtyard and/or beach.

This property is well maintained, and in an excellent location on the beach. The facilities are up to date and attractive (and in the process of further renovation as I write this). The resort staff were, for us, universally friendly and helpful. I honestly cannot think of a bad thing to say about the Lodge and Club; we had a very pleasant stay there.

Room Tip: an ocean view is worth extra money for sure

My husband and I visited the Lodge and Club 16 years ago when we got married. We loved the room and the location, and looked forward to staying again this year since we had friends visiting Ponte Vedra. We still found many things we liked, but it wasn't as nice as the first time.

Things we liked:
Great service! It is like being on a cruise ship.
Our room had a fireplace which was a nice touch.
They have an adults only pool, which I really liked.
The bed was very comfy and the room layout was nice.
The nightly turndown service with cute little gifts included.
Loved my day at the Spa at the Inn. Beautiful spa.
I liked that they opened the outdoor Oasis bar on Saturday because of the nice weather, even though it is usually closed between November and February.

Things that could be improved:
The lighting could be better - hard to find a place bright enough to read.
The rooms could use some sprucing up - a new coat of paint would help a lot.
Food quality was uneven. For the prices (overpriced!0, food should be excellent every time, but mostly it was just okay.
The pool and bar was taken over by the club members on the weekend, so it was a little hard to enjoy those amenities on Saturday/Sunday.

Things that were not acceptable:
Ants in the kitchen.
Wet carpet the day we checked in.
Extremely high food prices - typically not worth it. If you stay here - you may want to frequent the other restaurants in the area.

My wife and I have been coming to the Lodge for about 5 years now, a couple of times each year. It is perfect for weekend getaways, as the accommodations are wonderful and the staff are very engaged. Great resort, even in the winter off-season. We have been hard pressed to find a resort as relaxing and peaceful as The Lodge. Looking forward to enjoying for many years to come.

Room Tip: We have tried most classes of rooms at the Lodge and never have been disappointed.

I stayed with my husband and mother-in-law last week while we were in town for a wedding. We had an enjoyable experience despite the chilly weather we were hoping to escape. The room was great with a fireplace, banquette seating for staring out at the ocean or reading, and a spacious bathroom with double sinks, large soaking tub and walk-in shower. The room was very clean and housekeeping was very attentive. The location, right on the beach was excellent. It was convenient to the Jacksonville airport and about a 35 minute drive to St. Augustine. We thought the service was great. We enjoyed the afternoon tea in particular. There were lots of great amenities which we unfortunately didn't have time to fully take advantage of. We did feel the dinner entrees were a bit overpriced and noticed the drink prices were different at the bar and dining room. The food was quite good though. We would return and recommend.
