“Best staff and service experience I have ever had. Loved this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2012

We booked this hotel for our daughter's wedding guests. We had the rehearsal dinner on the patio of the restaurant and it was lovely. The rooms were large and clean and comfortable. The setting is beautiful. It was very convenient to stores and activities. I heard nothing but raves from all family members (We had over 30 rooms). My husband and I booked a suite and had several family gatherings there. The hotel staff helped us with every detail -- actually helped us carry things in, provided an extra refrigerator, delivered information letters to our guests in their rooms, provided a free coffee urn filled with coffee... and the staff wouldn't even take tips for helping. They were all amazing.

Room Tip: The fairway rooms are very nice.

One of the nicest rooms I've stayed in. Large and modern.

Great breakfast and dinner and right on the golf course. Also has a pool altho I didnt use that.

Staff were very friendly overall and room was kept very clean by services.

About 15min walk to nearest shops and restaurants or short drive. Hotel has ample parking which is free.

This review is for a Memorial Day weekend one night stay. I stayed in a room with my sister and daughter who is 10. For starters, this seemed to be a little less modern but not old hotel but very well kept and still had it's charm. The beds were awesome, very good pillows!

The neighborhood where the hotel is located is very nice and there are plenty of places nearby like the pharmacy and 5-10 minutes out you can find just about any restaurant.

The room itself was very ample, with a great tv, desk, chair with ottoman, great lighting, separate bathroom and TWO SINKS. One inside the restroom and the other outside. THERE IS A SEAT type space INSIDE THE SHOWER. Plenty of soap if you forget yours.

We arrived the nice gentleman gave us three warm cookies as a welcoming. The grounds are set up for a little walk with few rooms for direct access. The rooms not your typical building but more apartment like. I did not see any elevators. They had plenty of security as it was a busy weekend. The staff was very helpful when we were trying to figure out how to get to our room. If you have a lot of luggage ask for an easy access room so you don't have to walk so far.

The patio with two chairs led directly to the pool. It was a bit dirty but again, it was a busy weekend and the staff was on point about clean towels and cleaned up any soiled ones from the chairs.

I don't golf but stayed here to avoid the holiday weekend crowd and drove to Seaworld quickly and I would stay here again. I had breakfast and the places were only filled with locals not tourists which I loved! My daughter and sister loved it. We may even go here during the week just to get away from home :) and work as it's very peaceful here.

Room Tip: If you don't like to walk to much then ask for a room near the parking. But if you are like me...

Great hotel, great golf course location. We had lot of fun with golf. I think rooms are weirdly designed causing some of them with lot of walking or steps on 2nd and 3rd floor. ours was on 3rd floor - only option was to take elevator from the main lobby and long walk or from parking take 3 flights of stairs...Breakfast buffet was extra and little bit on high end. Good breakfast buffet area with a view of golf course but the price was a killer. Internet was extra, parking was extra. Room could use a microwave and fridge for a property like this on resort location. We did not have great views from our room but some rooms are on golf course with amazing views.

Room Tip: There are some nice restaurants around in 1 to 2 mile radius and some great breakfast places also, i...

Great golf! The room was a little noises. I could hear other guest talking in the adjacent room and walking in the room above me.

Room Tip: Ask reservations which rooms are the most quiet.

Only two things I would change,put a small refrigerator in room for guests and the second either give to small water bottles of water complementary or not at all.
A nice hotel and a nice stay.

The room was decent. But you have to pay $10/night for parking! Also, internet is not free and it doesn't offer continental breakfast...

For the price you're paying, this hotel is not worth it at all. You're better off staying at one of the hotels closer to downtown.

Room Tip: Just remember, they expect you to pay $10/night for parking!
