We only stayed at the villa for one night; however, it was clean and comfortable. The hotel and resort staff were friendly and helpful. The resort is beautiful and peaceful. We had dinner on site at the Falcon's Nest which was very good. Overall, this was an excellent experience and we would stay again.
I booked the Hampton Inn at Jacksonville Beach after reading reviews that were nothing but positive. They all mentioned Simone. By the time we checked in, I had forgotten about Simone, until she was checking us in. I'm not sure what this women is made of, but, the world could use a few more million people like her!! She exhumes some sort of energy that just makes you feel better. That said, the rest of the staff must be drinking the same water, because they were almost as energetic and pleasant, as Simone. As far as the facility is concerned, the beds were very comfortable & rooms were clean, the complimentary breakfast was very good! Needless to say, we had a great stay! and will definitely stay there again the next time we are in Jacksonville.
"Wonderful romantic place for our 30th anniversary"
Loved the Verandah restaurant (and Ray, our waiter) so much, we went back the next night. The Sunrise breakfast buffet was magnificent - especially my shrimp & gouda omelet. Every employee we met was polite and friendly. Loved walking on the beach at night watching shooting stars - the perfect place for our 30th wedding anniversary celebration.
Only complaint was the noise from the pool area late at night. We enjoyed listening to the surf, but had to close the door at 11:00 because of the yelling/laughter at the pool and we were on the 5th floor. We'll ask for a room farther away from the pool area next time.
I have stayed at the Sawgrass Marriot Golf Resort and Spa several times in which each stay has been excellent. The requests I have made and what the staff has done to accommodate these requests have been over the top and short of miraculous. Vernon's Restaurant's staff as well as the Sawgrass staff has accommodated each of my requests without hesitation and has exceeded everyone's expectations.

The location was fantastic and easy to use ...Right on the ocean...the condo was clean and comfortable, although a bit dated. Would have liked some simple amenities...as I went here instead of a hotel...like coffee filters, a blow dryer etc.. It worked great for us instead of a hotel. Had breakfast on the deck watching the sun rise...
