A few hints first. 1. Don't opt for an ocean view - you pay a lot more and still barely see the ocean unless you are in a suite. 2. Cell coverage is poor in the rooms, unless you hook your phone to wifi - ok outside. 3. lunch at seacrest was a good deal for a resort. Overall a... More

I came upon this gem of a location through a random JetBlue getaway vacation where flight and 3 night stay was a little less than 500 dollar. The hotel looks exactly as the photographs and the staff are generally welcoming. I initially paid for a view that was less than desirable, so at check in I inquired about upgrading to... More

We drove down from Charleston SC at the weatherman's promise of some warm, sunny temperatures (February 1-3, 2016). We were neither disappointed in the weather nor the hotel. Our room was 1061, spotlessly clean, and ideal for travelers with pets. The patio door opens directly to an area with a relief area for pets. (No ocean or pool view in... More

We stayed here for a night this past weekend. Just wanted to get away for a day. The resort is huge. The valet gentlemen were very welcoming. And the front desk ladies (sorry I didn't get any names) were extremely nice and helpful. They invited us to have dinner at the resort which I'm glad we did because it was... More

In addition all the pricing for the various elements of our weekend were very reasonable and quite the bargain considering the level of service. I would highly recommend this location for a... More

We stayed here for our 25th wedding anniversary the weekend of January 29-31. I wanted us to have a special weekend and I was not disappointed in the least. The property itself was gorgeous - so much so that we did not even leave the resort on our first day. No need to with the incredible food and beautiful scenery.... More

Spent a lot of time in conference hall and my room. I did eat at the casual restaurant. Food was above expectations but service was slower than expected, however it was middle of the afternoon. Overall is was a good experience. Amenities looked intriguing, however I did not use any.
