Although this was advertised as a hotel (186 rooms, etc), it really is a gated golf community with privately owned houses/units that are rented. The Standard Room we booked turned out to be a separately locked bedroom with bath belonging to 2 bedroom condo in a 4-apartment building. It was dark, not very clean (especially considering the room cleaning charge) and ill-equipped (no cups, coffee, tissues). A coffee maker was supplied, but unless you had filters, coffee and cups, this was not helpful.
Check-in was several miles away at Litchfield Golf & Country Club. Information on the actual property was lacking (is there really a restaurant and if so, what hours? Or a fitness room?). A key for the pool was not supplied, but necessary to use. And what exactly is the resort fee for? The room is not maintained (no trash removal, no new towels or made beds). Potentially we could have washed the towels ourselves, if we would have found the advertised washer and dryer. It took two days to get the trash and laundry bags removed from the front porch that greeted us when we first arrived. 2 1/2 days after arrival we finally got the TV working (after many calls to the not so friendly "front desk".
The location is nice, if you want to get away from it all. If you bring your own chairs you can watch the golfers on the course, or you can walk the community. The beach, shops and restaurants are quite far away.
Some of the units are probably a lot nicer, but service seems to be lacking all around. For the price (charge per night + daily resort fee + cleaning fee), you could and should expect a much nicer room.
