We were staying in the villas but stopped by the lobby bar for a bite around 8.30pm on a Monday.

Lets start by saying this is a very high end establishment, piano playing and fire going it was very nice.

We ate a light dinner which was very good, not cheap but perfect for what we needed.

Accommodations I hear are 5 star.

We were warmly greeted and checked in by Greg who was very pleasant throughout the stay and helped us promptly and professionally. The room was so luxurious and we had the most beautiful view. Everything about the room was perfect and we felt like royalty. Brett at check out was also very helpful. We really appreciated everyone's help and kindness. We look forward to coming back!

I was able to enjoy a time of amazing rest and relaxation with our family in July of 2010. One of our children uses a wheelchair for mobility and we requested a handicapped accessible room. We were given a beautiful room that was indeed wheelchair accessible room but the bath area could have had a little more room for mobility (at that time). They went above and beyond every expectation to make us feel welcomed and appreciated, even making a beach wheelchair available for us to use during our
stay.

I stayed at The Sanctuary 1/15-17/14 as part of a Site Visit for an upcoming meeting we will hold at the end of April. Granted the weather wasn't perfect but The Sanctuary is.
Rooms are spacious, service is superb, and activities are abundant.

My only wish is "Open the Ocean Restaurant -- seven days." Dined at both Atlantic Room at the Ocean Course and the Ocean Room right in the main building of The Sanctuary. Both places I experienced excellent cuisine and service. Two different typs of places -- Ocean is more of a "steak restaurant" and Atlantic is more focused on seafood.

Looking forward to my April visit for a Spoa visit and warmer weather.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with an ocean view. Courtyard views are just so-so.

This is the most amazing resort--a wonderful weekend getaway even if you don't play golf. The hotel is Southern elegance and the view from my window was spectacular, but it is the staff that makes this one of the most amazing hotels I have stayed in. From check-in to check-out, I felt like royalty. I enjoyed a fantastic dinner in the Ocean Room with a personal visit from Chef Brendan and my server, Erica was not only knowledgeable about the menu, but made the best suggestions for pairings. This was a perfect weekend!

You can't go wrong at this resort and I am not a golfer. Service is outstanding and the food is spectacular. The rooms are so nice you don't want to leave. I can't recommend a place more highly than I recommend this place. You will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: all the rooms are beautiful but if you can afford it the beach view is the best. Also be aware that...

I stayed at this resort with two girlfriends from high school and we couldn't have been happier! We purchased a spa getaway package which included a garden view room, two spa treatments per person, dinner at one of the resort restaurants, and daily breakfast. Service was extraordinary at every turn. We received an upgrade to the Charleston suite due to the spa being under renovations, and we felt like royalty. This is a high end resort, with extravagant prices, but service that matches up to the price. Definitely would recommend. The spa staff was impeccable as well. An absolute dream weekend away with good friends.
