From the outside this looks like a 5-star hotel. That is, the grounds are beautiful. But, that masks the lack or service and the physical condition of the inside. Oh and there is a horrible sulphur problem with the water. The restaurants are terrible except for the new Resort hotel that is not on the site of the original property. Our room had a terrible smell. We complained ... 3 times. Not once did the resort manager call us to address the issue. This is definitely not a place to spend a lot of money for a vacation or a business event.

Hotel's Favorite
This is a historic building, the Rockefellers , JP Morgan ...those type of people used it as a club back in the early 1900s. The service is wonderful... the building has been restored absolutely beautifully , If you like historic buildings you will love the buildings and grounds and the extra buildings there that you can go into.. If you are a golfer it is right around the corner ...the most fun way to get around on the island is to rent a golf cart or rent a bike.. The hotel rooms have been upgraded nice bathrooms very comfortable beds. There are so many common rooms to sit in ...there are game rooms and plan sitting areas and the bar is small but nice, and friendly bartenders!! the dining room is beautiful and at this time on is open on weekends for breakfast. But there is a coffee shop that serves hoii oh d breakfast although fast and lunches. The beaches there if that’s what you’re after are fantastic. And I felt like I was on a deserted island for a while because I had about a 1/2 mile to myself!!! Go to the driftwood beach it is very interesting!!! This island is worth a visit!!!

I get it - Covid had amenities closed, we were told before we booked. No surprises. But the places that were open need to up their game BIG TIME. First, ALL staff we dealt with (except one surly guy at breakfast in the club) were fantastic. Friendly and bent over backwards for you. Lots of young 'uns but what they lacked in experience they made up for in enthusiasm. No complaints. Actually kinda sweet. The room in San Souci - new bathroom (no tub, surprise!) but great water pressure and clean. The room itself - meh, not so clean. Thick dust on top of headboard. Bearable though and I actually liked not having maid service everyday (Covid restriction), Love the linens they use and we were showered with lots and lots of clean, beautiful towels and soaps if we asked. Only two serious food complaints - 1) the breakfast in the club itself. Oh boy, what a hot mess. I ordered a breakfast sandwich on a bagel. The eggs were a square brick, obviously bought pre-made and frozen. Microwaveable.... they put that egg brick on the bagel with the bacon and then microwaved the whole thing! The bagel came out to me super hot, but you can't microwave bread products. It was like biting into a steaming gummy bear from hell. Tough, rubbery, doughy, with the inside consistency of cardboard soaked in water. It was so unbelievably bad. Not even toasted - just the hard, gummy glue paste bagel with a brick of egg, a slice of Kraft cheese and 3 slices of pre-cooked bacon. YUM! 2) I stopped at the snack cottage and ordered a beer brat. Oh.My.God. I peered in and saw no cooking happening. That should have been a tip-off. The beer brat came out on an old roll, and was obviously cooked the day before (or more) and then put in ANOTHER microwave and nuked until it was a sizzling piece of beef jerky. I couldn't even bite through it. I mean, that beer brat could have served as a croquet mallet on the course a few hundred feet away. The sauerkraut was good though, fresh from a large institutional can. On the flip side, the ice cream/candy booth was excellent as was the Yacht Club restaurant. Will I come again? Yes. BUT, if you are coming for a stellar experience, DON'T. I like spotty and mediocre and the Club delivers!

Great place to visit during the week. We were greeted by Ben at the luggage desk when we first arrived early and he did a great job accommodating our needs. He made sure we had some cold waters after our long driver from Atlanta. The overall customervice at the club was excellent. We rented bikes at Wheels just behind the clubhouse. It was just a quick 2 day trip, but we felt like we were able to enjoy our time exploring the island. The Pantry store and Wharf restaurant were delicious. Quick fact: The Federal Reserve was created at this resort. We enjoyed the pool and long bike rides on all the great paths. Great trip!

This is such a classic setting; it is easy to overlook some of the things some may consider shortcomings. After all, it is an historic, old, building. For us, that is what gives it its charm. The staff could not have been better. Everyone we met from the valet on arrival, to the agent who handled checkout, were friendly, efficient, and professional. Our experience in the bar was very good with a great selection of bourbons, well made cocktails, and friendly conversation from our server. We visited both nights during our stay. Our room in the Annex was larger that we expected and well appointed with a coffee maker and refrigerator. The bath was spacious, the towels large and fluffy, and the soap and other amenities first class. There could have been more water pressure in the shower, but it was hot and that is what really counts. The bed was very comfortable, with nice linens and bedding. There is an elevator in the Annex which makes this a good choice if you have a lot of luggage. The grounds were well manicured and made for a nice place to walk and relax after a five hour drive. We will definitely return.
