“Every bit as good as the last time we stayed here in September 2008”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2009

We have made this a regular stop on trips from south Florida to points north. You can check out our review in September 2008 for details. But this is a nicely renovated, full service hotel just off I-95, priced reasonably, good restaurant and bar, great rooms and common areas, friendly staff. They have an IMAX within an easy walk where we took in the the latest "Star Wars" flick the night we stayed.

Highly recommended.

The hotel was spectacular. The ONLY issue that we had was that it was a 20 minute drive to St. Augustine. Other than that, the hotel itself was very clean, very appealing, with very friendly staff. The check-in time was stated 4 PM on their website, however, we arrived at 9:30 AM and they let us check in early. Also they upgraded our room to a balcony for no additional cost. If you are a golfer, you will be in heaven at this hotel. The hotel is in an exclusive golf village with many cool things like golf courses and lessons. The IMAX theatre is also on the grounds of the hotel which is very cool. Gift shops and restaurants were also very good. Overall this was a terriffic hotel and a very pleasant stay.

Checked into the hotel on May 3 for a few days of leisure and golf. Hotel has been recently renovated and has nice modern decor. Lobby and common areas include an indoor water feature, colorful and comfortable lounge chairs and floor to ceiling art in the center of the building.

Check-in was easy at individual podiums. First room we were assigned on the 7th floor was lovely except for one thing....someone had smoked in the room (entire hotel is non-smoking) so called to be moved to another room. Front desk said no problem....the move was immediate to a new room on the 4th floor.

Comfortable bed. Great amenities. Courteous and helpful staff. Close to two excellent golf courses. World Golf Village Museum on property. Shopping at the TourStop was convenient. Restaurant on premises. Bar located off the lobby area very nice. Easy access from interstate.

Great place to stay if you want to play golf and relax. Quaint town of St. Augustine nearby.,

This place has gone way down the drain. I wittnessed my husband being assulted by some person who gave the police a fake identity. To add insult to injury we were forced to leave. Our version of the events were dismissed. We used to frequent there often,we were very regular good customers. The manager needs some looking at. Its a shame because the food and beverage staff are wonderful . We were victimized there and then treated like trash. I am sure when my husband returns again from Iraq next year we will skip by this place as they do not like Military Officers here, as shown by the manager that was there in October of 08.

  • Liked — When we stayed there it was good, but expensive
  • Disliked — No problems with the rooms

The world golf village renaissance resort has really improved over the years, we haved stayed at this hotel a number of times and with the recent make over it really shines. The resturant in the hotel is actually quite good, and moderate in price. The staff is excellent, especially the front desk. The hotel has a large pool, and hot tub, and also a huge playground area for the kids. Of course there is Golf ! There is also a little walkway around the village a couple of shops and the Hall of Fame. There is also a resturant located on the walk.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel last year during rennovations and had a great experience. We stayed again this yearing following completion of the renovations and the hotel is even better! The Renaissance is located at the World Golf Village in between Ponte Vedra and St. Augustine. It is approximately 5 miles from the St. Augustine outlets located on I-95. The hotel looked fabulous following the completed renovations. The rooms are very spacious and comfortable as are the bathrooms in the room. The food at the hotel is actually good and there is nice bar with ample TVs to watch your favorite team. We have not been disappointed with this hotel and will be back again!

  • Liked — Great overall hotel at a reasonable nightly rate.
  • Disliked — If you are visiting downtown St. Augustine it is a 15 minute drive
