overall resort is awesome and so is the location. The only uncomfortable thing was that bathroom would clog and we would have water accumulate to ankle level. We mentioned this at checkout and did not hear any reaction.

FD, concierge and bellman were great
This is one of my favorite hotels to go to for a quick weekend getaway. There were a couple things I wasn't completely satisfied with during this stay. 1. For the money I was paying for the room, the bathroom didn't function. It wasn't completely broken, however there was a big problem with the water supply-flushing the toilet. For this room rate, I also expected a little better quality of toilet paper. The overall condition of the toilet seemed very outdated. 2. Breakfast Sunday morning at the restaurant by the pool was sort of a clown show. The food was good, and would have been great if we had a server that was aware of what she was doing. - Ordered an egg white omelette with lobster, came out without the egg whites. Had to send it back. - my friend ordered the same exact thing, she got the egg whites-but no cheese. - my other friend ordered some sort of a scramble, and no side of fruit came out with it. When we asked the waitress she insisted that we were wrong and the scramble does not come with a side of fruit. We later showed her the menu, and the best thing she could say was she's not used to working the morning shift. - our fourth friend made sure to advise her in advance that she is allergic to Kiwi. When she got her breakfast with a side of fruit after digging into the fruit salad she realize there's Kiwi in the bottom of the cup. Again, our fabulous waitress didn't even try to go out of her way to possibly offer another side of fruit.

Do NOT stay here! Too much money for what you get
We would not recommend this hotel. The spa treatments were unprofessional and sub par, especially give the extreme high cost. Food on the property (tried 3 different restaurants) we not good at all given the price (equivalent to a Denny's, which is fine, but I never pay $125 / person @ Denny's).

Great Service
Property is beautiful, some of the common areas can use some updating and deep cleaning. Food at the Angel Oak was only fair, but service and ambiance of restaurant was great. menu selection at other two restaurants was very limited.

Average resort
Decent resort however a little dated. We paid over 1,000 a night and many of the facilities were closed for weddings. Cafes, bistro, parts of angel oak, walking path. They should not charge regular guests full prices if you don't have full access. Service was also average. The highlight was when we were leaving the resort and bell service was more than 30 minutes delayed. We proceeded to walk up a steep incline with all our luggage. One of the attendants, driving an empty cart, drove right by us and didn't offer to help or transport our luggage.
