We use this hotel annually for a group of about 60+ rooms because they are a full service conference oriented hotel and can accommodate both the number of rooms and the meeting space to feed the group breakfast in the morning. It's been about three years in a row and while this past year was the most challenging, we had not experienced a problem in the past and did sign a contract to return this upcoming year after some deliberations with the hotel management (they contracted all double/double beds but when we arrived we had fewer than half the number necessary to accommodate the group). The physical property is beautiful and spacious, I like the free parking and how accessible to the resort it is (park right near the front door and walk up, making trips to the car easy). The arrival experience with no real front desk but more like a podium encourages the staff to walk freely about and have more face to face interaction with the guests. When I checked in the front desk associate never even stepped behind the desk, he shook my hand when I walked the front door, we walked together to his kiosk where my keys were laying already made up on the counter, he handed them to me, nothing to swipe (I'm a Marriott Rewards Platinum and it was complimentary stay with a credit card already on file) and I was in my room in just a few minutes. The snag was quite challenging with the double beds but the hotel staff worked with me for several hours accommodating us with upgraded larger rooms, relocating some staff to a nearby hotel and paying for an executive of ours to relocate to an expensive sister property downtown. Again, we're returning this year and I'm most appreciative of management working through everything with me to encourage us to come back because it really is the only hotel in town for a group our size.

Stayed here for a long weekend conference. This would be great if you like to golf. Otherwise it's kind of out in the middle of the Florida swamp lands. There's not much of anything around other than the golf village and swamp. The hotel itself is very nice, but for the price you could get something ocean front.

We stayed here to celebrate my birthday and it was a great choice. The rooms are beautiful, ours had a love seat chair and desk chair with a king bed. Very comfortable. There was a wet bar with small fridge. The bath was nice, large shower, no tub. Housekeeping, front desk and bell men were excellent, but it appeared the maintenence staff was lacking I.e. we reported the ice maker on our floor was broken and it was never repaired. The exercise room was very impressive with well maintained equipment and a dry sauna (another maintenence issue, it wasn't functioning well). We did not have a balcony but did have a nice view overlooking the golf course and downstairs there is lots of outdoor seating. After visiting the downtown area, we were so happy we selected this property for a very relaxing visit.

Rate was good. Grounds are beautiful. Quite a distance from historic St. Augustine and restaurants. Rooms are nice. Other areas need some TLC. Ladies bathrooms in lobby needs new wallpaper. Several areas have cracked tile. Roof in lobby needs repair. During an afternoon rain storm it was raining inside the lobby in 4 places. Not a bad value.

We stayed here for the 4th of July weekend, the property is a bit far away from Downtown St. Augustine so be prepared to drive or get a cab; the property does offer a complimentary shuttle service to Downtown St. Augustine but it only runs three times a day.
The hotel is very nice but the room we were given had an odd smell (I think it was the carpet) and the bathroom had an even funkier smell.
This is a great choice for Marriott Elite members as far as resort properties is concerned as they will give you a complimentary in-room movie (Much more than other resort properties I have stayed at) and they were kind enough to give us a later check-out.
We had a great view of the golf course which seemed very inviting (we just didn't have time to play) and the prices seemed reasonable ranging from $57 to $110 per person depending on the time of the day including the golf cart.

Also, the IMAX, and the fireworks display that was scheduled for the evening of the 5th...Security was good, the county sheriff department was visable / was an all around good family environment. The room was fresh, clean, well appointed and the balcony view of the secondary firworks over the lake was neat. Thanks to the host "Chris" who made sure all of my little request were cared for since this was the first time we took advantage of this little get away so close to home...Yeah, I turned the 7,000 or so yards at the King&Bear into about 12,000 yards, but it was all fun....No complaints here....Good Job Marriott, as always...!!

Room Tip: If you want a balcony room try to request a resort view, unless you like looking out over the parkin...

This was an excellent facility. All of the staff were courteous, friendly and very helpful. The room was clean and looked to be recently updated. It was not particularly spacious but it was adequate. Ours looked to be one of the smaller rooms at the resort. We did not have a balcony, most of the other rooms did. I assume that those rooms were a little larger too.

Enough of the standard stuff. We went to St Augustine over the 4th to see the fireworks in town. We didn’t know that there were fireworks scheduled at the resort on the 5th until we arrived. They were fabulous. I am 62 and these were some of the best fireworks that I’ve had a chance to see. It would be worth coming here just to see them. Go if you get a chance.

Room Tip: Get a room with a balcony with golf course views
