Arrived at villa and was met by quite a bit of debris on the doorstep, including paper and flossing tool ! Entered villa and maybe because of doorstep started checking it out. The overall impression was one of shabbiness and grubbiness. The main floor was very dirty and sticky in places. One wall in sitting/kitchen area was a window/patio door and this had drop blinds which were literally falling to bits affording no privacy from the building site outside. One of the other walls was 100% mirror and I found this very disconcerting. There was a a large glass top table in the room which because of poor lighting in walked into and almost injured my shin. I contacted front desk about cleanliness and blinds problem and was assured that it would be rectified ... 12 hours later problem remained and after talking to manager (Shannon) who said all she had was an apology, I had to let it go as I was checking out in morning. This was very expensive accommodation and I found what I encountered, dissapointing and wholly unacceptable.
There is a reason that The Ocean Course at Kiawah Island is 3rd on Golf Digest’s ‘America's 100 Greatest Public Courses’, it is a truly phenomenal course and a must-play for any golfer. The Ocean Course has played host to the Ryder Cup and PGA Championship in its illustrious history, however, there are four other championship courses at the resort; Turtle Point, Osprey Point, Oak Point and Cougar Point, that are all worthy of a round in their own right. The combination of these fantastic courses makes Kiawah Island one of the best golf resorts in America.
