Lovely and relaxing getaway.”

The room was large and wonderful, after we got moved the room we initially paid for. At first we were placed in a smaller, more dated room due to a water line breakage. The views were beautiful from our second room. The food at the pool and restaurant was very good. The toiletries smelled wonderful. Bath salts provided were a nice touch.
The pool has very few seats that can sit poolside. The infinity edge, a big seller online, looks over into a drab walkway and the backs of buildings- a missed opportunity to make something beautiful. Some parts of the grounds are spectacular, others so so. Our first room, Silver O, had noisy lights and a clicking sound coming from the a&#47;c unit all night long. The patio was lackluster and dated. I was disappointed that, being moved at check in- we were downgraded, rather than upgraded. Hotels I’ve been to previously have always overcompensated if there was any trouble on their end- not here. We received no compensation- not even a free meal or drink. For as much as the stay cost, I would’ve expected better service.

Very Good”

The scenery was so beautiful and the rooms are tastefully decorated... cart drivers are friendly and timely. The infinity pool area was wonderful and the service. One could spend a whole day there! Room 244 had cleaning items outside of entryway. I suppose I was early for check in. Only issue was I received a Welcome Text message late night after hearing about it coming back in from dinner. Lastly the bathroom sink needed spring item maintenance to allow water to drain out of sink. I think there should have been some type of awareness of this issue. Otherwise I would consider returning again.

Sanctuary = Exactly as Stated....”

The Sanctuary is exactly as stated - a wonderful place to rest and relax. It was the only location we actually used the pool and ate two dinners at the superb restaurant on site. The value is proportional to the cost. I have stayed here three times and would gladly return.
The golf carts were ever-present. Almost too many, too much, but necessary for the staff most surely.

Brilliant winter warmer with exceptional staff and service.”

Location, staff and comfort excellent. Perfect winter retreat - sunny and not hot. Loads to do and see. Food excellent but portion sizes too large and most people were. It finishing their meals, thus wasteful.
Not much to say negatively. Would think a smaller separate cafe or second restaurant would be welcome for choice or convenience of a lighter meal. And navigation around the campus a little confusing.
