Golf is at the heart of this luxurious resort, which underwent an extensive renovation in 2015, but there's no lack of opportunity for other recreation or for sheer indulgent relaxation, if that's what you're after. Besides offering access to the renowned Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass, which hosts The Players Championship each year, the resort has trails for jogging or biking, as well as an acclaimed 18-hole mini-golf course that appeals to the whole family. There are plenty of other activities for the kids, too. Or, you can simply laze about in the highly regarded spa or by one of four swimming pools. It's not an oceanfront resort, but that's just a technicality: the exclusive oceanfront Cabana Beach Club is a three-minute drive or shuttle ride away. The elegant hotel tower is home to several casual on-site restaurants, including Alice & Pete's Pub and the upscale Vernon's.

I went for the golf and my wife took advantage of the fine Spa. TPC Sawgrass was in impeccable condition following 'THE Players' Championship...I finally got to play that 17th island hole. Marie fell in love with the treatments at the Spa and I must admit that the food and service was top notch (I couldn't fit in any desserts...those damn American portions)! However, make sure and try the Beef Carpacio...amazing! The rooms have just been renovated
and it was very pleasant watching last night's golf highlights on a huge plasma screen every morning! I couldn't fault a thing - what a pity I couldn't bring the weather back with me to Ireland!
