I had seen a number of negative reviews of Hammock Beach resort, I think some of the problems were due to previous management. I have to say the employees were all very polite and quick to help us, the condo we had was spacious and clean BUT--we paid for an oceanview room, and there was barely a slip of ocean that we could see, the rest was obscured by the many large palm trees. But they offered to work with me on the price so I thought that was fair. The pools were great, drink prices were not cheap but about what you would expect for a resort. HB is BIG, spread out, and I have to say very clean. The landscaping is very well done and well kept, and quite beautiful. The valets, bell hops, and the guys working the beach chairs were very polite and helpful, as were the people working the golf course. The course itself is beautiful, and well kept, but NOT CHEAP AT ALL, be prepared to spend but again that is a Florida resort for you. Bring plenty of balls unless you are good and can keep it on the narrow fairways, if the ball gets off the fairway it goes into thick Palmetto and brush that looks to have its share of snakes in it so you don't want to go poking around.
There should have been more teen activites offered for our kids I thought, but it was not a deal breaker as it is mostly adults there, although there were a number of young kids. Room service was not cheap, but came up exactly when they said it would and unlike many hotels who don't give you much food, we got PLENTY of food, three meals would easily feed five people and it was good. The beach has some rocks in the surf you should watch for, otherwise you can bang your shin and foot pretty good but you can usually see them and they are a natural occurrence, the rest of the beach is nice. Overall it was a good time and I can recommend Hammock Beach resort. Also you can save by buying food at the Publix grocery store which is only a mile away and has everything you would need, they have a stuffed salmon there that is extremely good, they fried chicken they make there is tender and amazingly good as well. HB is also a great place for walking or bike riding, as I said it is BIG and there is plenty of room to roam.
