Everything about the stay itself was great but there was an issue with the hotel honoring the price I booked with through Travelocity. I always use Travelocity and have never had an issue until now. Upon checkout the front desk claimed to have a different room rate as I originally booked and paid for ahead of time. We agreed on deducting taxes and resort fees to get close to my original purchased price. Quite disappointing experience to say the least

Couldn’t get our room cleaned, front desk didn’t tell us where our room was, had to ask for more towels and for trash to be emptied. Room was very nice. Breakfast was good. Pool bar was good and food shut from pool bar was good but very limited in selection, and it shut down at 6 p.m., sundown not til 8:00. Too bad, would’ve liked watching sun set with a drink. Glad I had a car to dine in St. Armand’s circle every night.

For the amount of money you paid the service should have been the 5 star that it said it was. Check in great- food came very late had to call to find out what was wrong. Beach was nice and respectful for the distancing. Very expensive, so bring a lot of $$.
