We recently stayed at the hotel during our three week holiday in Florida. This was a Reward Stay courtesy of the Priority Club Rewards programme.
We had the basic Islander guest room which is all you can get when booking a reward stay with Priority Club / IHG, these rooms face inward on to the courtyard / landing area but unfortunately no balcony or patio. For a family of four it was a bit cramped to say the least however from what we could see the bigger rooms / suits looked nice and spacious.
My only gripe was that our room was only ever serviced late in the day ( around 5.00 - 5.30 ) right when you are coming back from the pool and the beach and wanting to freshen up and get changed. We were there four days and interrupted the maid on three of the days, I guess if you are "paying" for you room then maybe you aren't left until last.
Pool area was ok, plenty of sun loungers, at peak times expect it to be busy.
If you do book an Islander guest room then I suggest you request a quiet room on a higher floor (second or third floor) as the hotel has its indoor mini golf right outside the rooms on the ground floor.
All in all as a Reward Stay it was ok and we would return.
