My husband and I just returned from a trip to The Sanctuary. It couldn't have been better! The hotel is fabulous with amazing staff. Everyone went above and beyond to make our stay special. The housekeeping staff was the best we have ever had. We have stayed at many nice hotels and this is definitely one of the best--much better than any Ritz Carlton that we have stayed at. We loved playing tennis and renting bikes to ride all over the island. We recommend riding to the Kiawah River mouth on Beachwalker Beach. During low tide you will see dolphins strand feeding-amazing! We had great meals while we were there. One of our favorite spots was the Cherrywood BBQ at Osprey Point. It is a casual restaurant, but delicious and friendly. We loved watching the alligators at the pond on the 18th hole. Another great place is Tomasso-Itallian restaurant that is fabulous. Only disappointment was The Ocean Room. This restaurant is their premier restaurant, but we were extremely disappointed. The service was very poor. We felt like we were ignored and the food was just mediocre. It is an expensive restaurant, which is fine if you get what you pay for, but we really didn't feel like we did. Don't waste your money there, there are plenty of other great places to eat on the island.
We couldn't be happier with our stay. We only wish we could have stayed longer!
