We stayed in this hotel prior to playing Sawgrass. The hotel is vast and we didn't really get to see or use most of the facilities as we were only there for one night after a late evening checkin. We were not in the main hotel but a few hundred yards away in one of the lodges ( these are really small apartment blocks in reality ). Rooms were basic but clean. We didn't actually eat on site. We went down for the breakfast buffet and were told that the breakfast was included in our rate, great ! Our waitress brought coffee etc and then another waitress turned up and said it wasn't included in the rate ! but we could have it at $30 per head !!!.............goodbye . So we went down the road to a local diner which was very good. Only other small gripe was the $20 per night parking charge ! bit rich considering how much you pay to stay there. Overall, its a hotel and unfortunately a requirement if you want an advance tee time on the stadium course.
