My husband booked our family's overnight stay here on our way to FL for spring break, so I had no expectations. My first thought as we pulled up was "I am not fancy enough right now to walk through the lobby!" Top notch service and facility with amazing attention to detail and friendly, knowledgeable staff. Our snacks poolside were delicious...

Excellent sums it up; every interaction, every request, every member of staff. The experience was consistent throughout our four night stay over Easter. Rooms were well appointed and the staff took great care to make sure we had everything required. Our room was on the 5th floor, with view of ocean and great lawn. We brought our one year old,...

My wife and I completely enjoyed our third stay at the Sanctuary. The service by all the staff was professional and courteous. The food was very good and priced well. There was a gas leak one evening and we were evacuated for two hours. An employee named Christy, stepped up and changed our dinner reservations to another location outside the...

It is very rear to have absolutely zero complaints about a lodging experience, and this is an example of just that. The grounds are exquisite, with attention to every possible detail. The lobby is majestic. The pool is great, and backs up to miles of beach. Easy access to bike rental on site. Good fitness center, good food options and...

I had the opportunity to stay at The Sanctuary at Kiawah Island again, this stay was much better than the last stay.

Went here for an annual girl's getaway/50th Birthday celebration. Property is just incredible. Food is great. Service is 5 star. Views are unreal. Grounds beautifully landscaped and so much to do. Definitely pay the additional cost for an ocean view room. It is very pricey, but worth it every penny.

Our room was "upgraded" when we got there, but I think the location facing the front drive would have been more peaceful. They put us on the ground floor facing the other wing and green space where many people, especially children, gathered to play ball. It was a beautiful room and bath, so not really a big problem. My only...

The Sanctuary and its employees deserve the five star rating! We have visited often since it is a short drive from Mt. Pleasant, and have never been disappointed with any aspect of our stay. The rooms are immaculate, the food and beverages are superb, the grounds are meticulously beautiful, the employees are friendly and eager to help and the amenities...

stayed with friends at a villa on the beach in March which is always iffy in re: to weather. Our accomodations were very nice, clean and anything we needed was only a phone call away.
