Would rate a 3.5 star if able to. First the good which really is the excellent. Staff were extremely courteous and helpful at every turn. Valet always asked if we needed directions..where we were from..etc. Concierge very helpful. Tea and coffee available each afternoon. Ocean view rooms awesome view. Rooms very large and beautfily decorated. A little dark with lots of wood. Bathrooms very large with double sink and large shower along with whirlpool bath separate. Housekeeping and cleanliness top notch. Food at the Grill near golf course was excellent as was the view. Didnt play golf but course looked 1st class. Location in a very quiet section right between St Augustine and Daytona Beach.
Rooms...had 2 ancient Tv's dont think either was bigger then 19 inches. No checkout on TV. Hot water and AC system in the bedroom closet and very noisy.
Biggest downside was fact guest made feel like 2nd class citizens to members( who I assume are condo and home owners). Couple of days we were there they had from 2-4pm cookies..sandwiches and various other items in lobby....with big sign for members only. My wife thought being a guest meant being a member and was scolded when she took a cookie. Areas of resort where guest arent allowed only for members. Other downside was many places , things that you pay for in rate ,were closed...Italian restaurant closed all but 1 of 4 days we were there...Ice cream shop and rapids at pool were closed...beach chairs very old and dirty.
Went with wife for 4 nights and resort occupancy was very low due to slow time of year. Would have been very disappointed if had kids and they wanted to use the rapids and kids pool. I would return but with expectations that guests and members are two different classes of people
