“Nothing special”
Reviewed April 13, 2014 via mobile

My husband and I stayed at Sea Palms for our first wedding anniversary and we weren't terribly impressed. The room was comfortable but kind of shabby, and it had two double beds instead of the king we booked - not ideal for a romantic weekend. I was disappointed in the lack of amenities, especially room service. The resort's location is convenient to many things one might be interested in doing and the Putter's Club restaurant has decent food, but that's not enough to bring us back.

Went on a golf package or our 28th anniversary. Great deal. Stayed 3 nights. Pkg included a really nice king suite, golf for 2 for 3 days and breakfast every morning. Everyone was extremely nice starting with check -in to check- out. Food was good as was the service. The second day of golf (we stored our clubs since we'd be playing again) when we arrived for our our tee time
the cart was ready to go. They had put a small rose bouquet on the cart,. Nice touch! As for the course itself the greens were great. There were some fairways in not so great condition. However, everyone's' azaleas were in bloom and it made the course absolutely beautiful. We liked the course layout alot..

Room Tip: Get a room on the 2nd or 3rd floor to enjoy the views. Every room has a view of the marsh or the gol...

From start to finish, we had a great time this past weekend at Sea Palms Resort. We stayed for 3 nights in a one bedroom suite with spectacular views overlooking the marsh. It was interesting to observe how the tides affected the marsh from our 2 balconies (one screened in). Lovely to have our dinner out there at sunset. The suite was very clean with all the amenities we needed. Our son joined us for one night and used the pull out sofa in the living room for his bed. Everyone at this resort was pleasant and helpful from the front desk, to housekeeping and the restaurant wait staff. Can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: If you want a view of the water, select the marsh view and ask for an upper room. You are not on th...

Excellent job by Doug Winters and the Sea Palm staff to make our group of aging college buddies feel at home again. Doug handled our largest group ever's golf schedule flawlessly, with the added benefit of storing our clubs each evening, ready for play the following day.
Condo accommodations were spotless, comfortable, and ultra-convenient.
Food and service were top notch, as usual.
Looking forward to returning next year to Sea Palms for our tenth winter golf outing.

A group of guys have been going to Sea Plams to golf for years. Doug Winters and his team, do a great job in taking care of us. The condos are updated, clean, comfortable and a pitching wedge away from the first tee. Rick Irwin, the golf pro, is very accomodating on the tee times, carts, etc. The food in the dining room is great. There are probably nicer golf courses in the area, but the convenience of the facility and great staff, keep us coming back. Thanks again to Doug, Rick and their teams!

Sea Palms Resort was a referral when we first took our golf trip there 10 yrs ago.
We would never move elsewhere at this point . Doug Winters has been amazing to work with.
We have people coming from 9 different cities to meet and enjoy the laid back lifestyle on St Simons. Accommodations are always neat & clean. Staff has been fabulous with the morning aftermath of empty bottles etc. Doug gets a us a state of the art condo in walking distance to the Pro shop - which has been just as amazing getting us off twice a day in between their regulars.
I'm almost afraid to post this for fear the secret will get out, but these people will do a great job for families or large groups. Returning there now feels like coming home.

Just returned from a great long weekend of golf and fun at Sea Palms Resort on St Simon's Island in Georgia. Have to say that the facilities were fantastic, the staff friendly and courteous and the Georgia weather cooperated with 50's and 60's. We own rental property in Florida... so I have to compliment the team on the condition of the condos we used - all well furnished and updated. Have to also call out Doug Winters. How often does the General Manager of a resort check in on a small group of 12 to make sure we're happy? Doug stopped by, introduced himself and made sure we were having a great time. THAT's "southern hospitality." Last, but not least, the team at "Putters Restaurant" was friendly and tolerant of 12 gentlemen in a hurry for lunch squeezed inbetween 2 rounds of golf. This was my first trip to Sea Palms. I look forward to returning next year and for many years to come!
