Superb! The service, amenities, food and ambience are peaceful and elegant. We had a wonderful time and will continue to come back. We haven’t even gotten a chance to golf yet- it’s a wonderful getaway even if you don’t golf! We recommend the spa and a ride on the beach during low tide.

Bad portraits of horses and dogs , pseudo colonial furnishings , shortage of help everywhere and overpriced food that lacks imagination and freshness . Can’t compare to Sea Island , Georgia or other premier resorts in golf destinations .

Fantastic place, spacious beach view room, equipped in everything you might need during your stay. Comfortable bed, excellent and friendly staff. Landscape, interior, and service make it a great place to relax.

This was a great large family gathering resort. The hotel had so much to offer. The beach was great, the sand was so hard packed that we were able to ride our bikes on the sand. We played tennis and golf while some of us went shopping in Charleston. Tons of restaurants to try too. Had top notch service and the rooms were wonderful. We have visited twice and plan to visit again.

We had a fantastic time at our girls' getaway weekend at The Sanctuary Hotel! The Spa was fantastic! The staff went above and beyond to make our weekend getaway relaxing and fun! We will definitely be back!
