Oh. My. God. This was one of the worst experiences I’ve had in many years. I’ve been to many, many resorts in my life so I’m not new to the resort life nor am I looking for reasons to complain. I’m usually the over-tipper for my servers and keep my attitude happy as I understand the service industry how hard people have to work in this field- and I’m not one for leaving bad reviews but I just can’t let this one pass without comment. The resort itself is beautiful but you need to bring your own food, your own paper goods, your own libations- even though they have big signs that you cannot bring your own drinks and coolers, etc. The grounds crews and construction goes on throughout the day every day- they don’t have set times for those things. The restaurant is awful, the service is awful, you’ll wait over an hour + for anything. We got so disgusted that we got in the car and drove to subway over 7 miles to a gas station Subway and then drive back. I paid $1000+ for a 4 night pickleball clinic package and I truly feel bad upon leaving. The clinic would have been the best ever as the Pros were amazing HOWEVER- there were concrete cutters adjacent to the courts blasting all day blowing concrete dust in our faces and deafening is so we could not hear our instructors 90% of the time nor could we communicate with our teams and partners. They made it so difficult on everyone. I can’t imagine how frustrating it was for the instructors trying their best to give us the information we desperately needed. When we had an hour break for lunch it took 1.5 hours to get a cold sandwich which took away our valuable and highly paid for time in instruction. It caused so many problems for us all. Had I known any of this prior to leaving for this trip I would have cancelled immediately as this was not pleasant for me now my group of four travelers who all expected just a little more consideration from a resort that has to know how to do business at even a passing standard

The condos have been a nightmare to stay in with renovations from mold rot and nosy neighbors. When the owners were contacted they stated people come here and party and they wouldn’t do anything about loud guests from night until 6am. It has been the worst experience.

Mixed feelings about this resort. We had eight couples. The men all golfed. They didn't tell us the restraunt, grill was being renovated. It didn't open until 5 the day we arrived. Before I rant, let me say the condo's were outstanding. Very nice. There weren't many people staying. There isn't much in the area, but we did find a restraunt about 8 miles from the resort. On the return to the resort, we stopped at the grill about 7:45 to have drinks, and were told that we could have ONE round, because they closed at 8. No other place around to go (you would think for 16 people they would of at least stayed open for an hour.). We had a 8 a.m. tee time. We tried to get a late check out for the ladies, but were told they were full.......hmmmmm didn't seem anyone else was there. The guy running the pro shop was great. Don't think we're going to return.

This "resort" is unfortunately situated in one of the most depressed areas of Florida, with widespread poverty, and it shows in the customer service area. The accommodations were very nice and the golf course is beautiful. There's nowhere near enough staff as the one gentleman at the pro shop performs the job of three people. There are no luggage carts or porters to help you cross the distance from the parking lot, to the unfinished sidewalk to the villa. There were two parking spots near my villa, but they had orange cones in front of them the entire time I stayed, and as soon as I got ready to pull out of the parking lot someone came out and removed those cones. I reserved two nights and during the overnight of the first night I received an email through Expedia from the resort offering me a third night at half price, which I accepted. The next day I received a text message from the one of the people who runs the resort who said that promotion was not available to me. It is entirely unprofessional the way they handled that, and I'm not surprised that no one around there is very happy. The golf course was beautiful and played well. The restaurant was very good and the one shining spot was Sam, the bartender who served me on Wednesday night. All in all it was a depressing stay. I will say that if you just go there stay there play golf and eat, you'll probably be okay. But I won't go back.

Our family had a golf outing and the course and staff were great. I left my range finder at the course and the pro shop staff went above and beyond in helping me receive my item back to Indiana. Thank you so much for the extra effort. The course ws in great shape and the staff for our 4 group family outing was tremendously accommodating. Thank you
