We were Conned!
Reviewed 12 hours ago

We booked a room for two people which included "one round of golf". Little did we know that this, at the Sanctuary anyway, is not one round each but just one round. So when we both played we were charged an extra $250!!
Not only that, the food at the hotel restaurant was poor and we had to send it back.
And the place, which otherwise would have had a most pleasing ambience, was full of screaming kids running up and down the corridors and through the reception and bar areas.
All in all, a very unpleasant and costly experience.

5th year and still laughing
Reviewed 1 week ago

This is our 5th year of the sanctuary comedy weekend, it is a great weekend of fun. The comedy is great, food at sanctuary, ocean room steaks, and sushi in the bar was excellent. The place is beautiful, the beach is nothing but fantastic. This is a weekend of just a good time of laughter in a beautiful hotel. The staff as always is top notch. Treat yourself and come to Kiawah, you will leave wanting to come back.

Windswept Villas for 4 nights

My sister and I stayed in the Windswept villa. It was a great set up with two private bedrooms each with their own bath and a fully stocked kitchen. We called the front desk a couple of times and the staff was always very nice, friendly and accommodating, even for a late check out. I will definitely visit there again.

Love, Love, Love this place!

Will continue to return again and again. My favorite destination resort and an easy trip from Long Island, NY. Comedy Weekend was a lot of fun, with very good talent, room was spotless and very comfortable. We had a pillowtop mattress and asked if they could make it firmer somehow and they did though I'm not sure how. We requested a down quilt instead of the heavier blanket the bed was made up with. They accommodated us in short order. Oh, I forgot to bring my contact lens case, the concierge looked in what she called her "Magic Closet" and came up with a brand new one. My walk on the beach was lovely and peaceful. I'm going to try to go back in three weeks for a solo golf stay.

WOW..the service is fantastic
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

The entire property is a dream. The service is by far the best I have every seen. The cleaning service is over the top. We used all amenities - spa, dining, bar, golf, bikes, etc. We spent New Years there and was an absolute dream. We will go back.
