Stayed in a presidential suite for 5 nights in late Feb. Got unlucky with weather - cold and/or rainy every day. Very much enjoyed our stay just the same. Staff throughout were friendly and very helpful. Food was very good at the Golf Inn and very good to excellent at the Seafoam. The layout of the place would normally not be a problem but was a little bit of an issue given we had horrible weather. There are several buildings containing rooms
along the beach and the Seafoam is in one of these buildings on the end so was a bit of a walk to get there. Given it requests jacket/tie and it was raining - the staff helpfully suggested they would pick us up and drop us off in the hotel car. I could have driven myself of course - apart from the drinking/driving bit. The main bar and golf restaurant were across the street in yet other buildings. In good weather it would be enjoyable to walk between them - for our visit it was a minor nuisance. The only gripes are fairly minor. The room is beginning to feel a little old with minor things needing repair but it doesn't scream for remodeling. Breakfast at the main restaurant is just so-so. We very much enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate to go back.

Stayed here with a friend for a girl's weekend away for 2 nights. It was end of January so prices were great. We loved the Spa, the beach, pool, jacuzzi and all facilities. It was not crowded at this time of year, but picked up a little over the weekend with the activity level, with locals who belong to the club and use facilities. Not crowded at all though. We lucked out with good weather in the 70's. Food was great at the Golf club. The Seafoam
restaurant was closed for renovations. We ate at the sister property The Lodge and Club 1.5 miles down the road one night and that was ok. The service was wonderful at the reort and everyone was exceptionally polite, nice and friendly, always smiling. I would highly recommend this for anyone, and I'm sure in seaon would be great for the family!
