How to Get There
Just returned from a 5 day stay at Saddlebrook along with their tennis program with my wife. The resort itself is very dated, maintained at the bare minimums. The tennis was poor, with the exception of one instructor. My wife's instructor was busy watching videos on his phone for most of the time and unable to move. The customer experience by most of the staff there was marginal. I heard rumors the resort was for sale and it shows.. The reviews on TripAdvisor are many years old and completely out of date and inaccurate now. This was a huge waste of money!!
Service was just ok - not terrible, but not good. Rooms were a bit dated, but mostly clean (mildew/mold in the bathroom). Quite expansive, but quiet considering the number of people. It seems they’re doing some updating/remodeling so maybe issues will be resolved in the future.
My mom, myself, and mother in law decided to spend a day at the spa for mothers day and it did not disappoint. My daughter was sad because she wanted to come but kids have to be at least 12 to join. I had a 50 minute swedish massage and it was great! My mom and mother in law had pedicures and they were very pleased with the nail technician. I love this spa and we had a very relaxing day. Fantastic!
If you enjoy lush landscapes with local fauna, a staff that smiles and is endlessly friendly and helpful, one restaurant that offers good food and service, better-than-average golf courses and tennis facilities along with accommodations that hardly match then Saddleback is your resort. That some rate it as very good is beyond me. Our room was very dated (see photos) and in desperate need of updating. It didn't help that our TV didn't work for nearly a day. We also didn't enjoy the up close and personal view of several alligators in an adjacent pond. The only way I'd consider returning is if the rooms are modernized. It's also important to know that the location is isolated with essentially no non-resort eateries nearby.
The grounds are lovely. The rooms are dated and possibly original furnishings. The bathroom vanity was very very low. There is one restaurant on the grounds. The nearest are about 20 minutes away and are mostly chains. I will say that the restaurant had delicious food.
