Innisbrook, A Salamander Golf & Spa Resort
What We Love
- Four championship golf courses
- Condo-style rooms have lots of space, full kitchens and private patios or balconies
- The new and lavish Indaba spa (part of a comprehensive resort upgrade)
- Market Salamander’s chef-cooked meals in the privacy of your room
- Free shuttle takes you all over the 900-acre grounds and to nearby Caladesi Beach
What To Know
- Better for families and friends than singles and couples
- Think ahead about golfing; if you're flexible, you can wait until you arrive to book your tee times, but if you're picky, call ahead (there's a chance at least one of Innisbrook's courses might be hosting an event during your stay)
- Copperhead Course hosts the PGA Tour, but in-the-know golfers favor the Island course
- Look past the dated Florida condo architecture; it’s better inside.
- For a resort this size, it’s light on dining variety
- Free WiFi
- Golf Course
- Kids Club
- Parking On Site

How to Get There
I was there for a large conference and originally was placed in a room that was out of the 1960's, which in itself was not a big deal but being highly allergic to mold, it was overpowering from the moment I entered. I was able to get switched after the first night into a renovated suite and it was a night and day difference. The tram drivers were courteous and very quick to arrive but it was tough to be with your co-horts while being so spread out in so many buildings. If you are going as a family, couple or very small group, I doubt it would be an issue. The lockness pool was great for families with children but we were disappointed that we took the tram to the pool to enjoy the day with having lunch and drinks only to find out after arriving that the restaurant was closed on Mondays & Tuesdays because it was slow. When we asked the front desk which pools had food service and they told us the lockness pool, it would have been nice if they had said but it's not available today before we headed over, were dropped off and then had to call for another tram to go back to the only restaurant open that day. The only place to purchase anything you need is only open varied hours but I guess you can ask the front desk to grab things for you when they are closed. Definitely recommend renting a car if you stay here. The conference facilities were nice, the staff very friendly and the banquet food was delicious and very plentiful. Overall a great conference but hard to mingle with everyone so spread out throughout the properties. The golf courses looked beautiful and very well maintained,
although I did not golf myself. Well kept property and overall friendly staff, just plan on a lot of walking or a lot of shuttle bus time if you want to explore any of the facilities. No elevators in the buildings so if you have accessibility needs, make sure you get a first floor room.
Excellent service Kerry and Nichole. Food was excellent. Staff accommodated young children and my disability. They were more than supportive so I very much enjoyed there help and their noticing I had struggled with getting plates on buffet. All staff in the Grille, treated like family.
Aside from the 70’s feel, popcorn ceilings, and mold, the staff was generally rude. We heard them snarl at children, tell people they weren’t the right fit for their resort and generally offer poor service. There were a few instances that included good service but overall, our experience was disappointing as was that of other members of our group.
I was there for a Taps convention and it spread all over the resort. The shuttle drivers were fabulous, such nice drivers! The conference Rooms were big and spacious accommodating a large group.
We enjoyed all the pools and recreation area.
Our room was a condo, very spacious with big patio balcony. The only issue I had was finding an outlet to charge my phone. It was clean but decor was little outdated.
We did see an alligator which was interesting.
If you are a golfer (I'm not) I was told by many of my associates that the 4 golf courses were awesome. The buildings and rooms are quite dated - old - but were clean. The conference center did a great job providing meals and cocktails.
