Great place to stay and play golf. The PGA National - Champion course is an excellent course. It was raining a lot the day before we played. So, the golf carts had to stay on the golf road. The grass was very deep because of all the rain, so it made the rough hard to get out of.
This was our second visit to this resort and we really enjoyed it. We had a 1 bed Oceanside villa and really can't fault it - well equipped kitchen, very comfy bed, huge shower, it's clean and comfortable - the decor is relaxed and the only thing that could be improved was the sofa isn't all that comfortable! Our room did have a limited view of the ocean but we were on the third floor so the view was fairly obstructed but that didn't particularly bother us. The facilities, such as the pools, gym etc are great and there are organised activities if that's your thing. The bar serves great cocktails but the food is nothing special - we generally ate out or prepared our own. Staff very helpful and the resort was quiet despite being at 97 percent occupancy. There was renovation going on in the Pompano building which you could hear at times by the pool, but that can't be helped - not sure if that building had any occupied villas, would not have wanted to be staying in that one whilst building work going on.
This is a fantastic resort. The location is wonderful, directly on Riviera Beach (a lovely stretch of beach at the northern end of Palm Beach) and the hotel and amenities are top notch, as is the service. We stayed in a 2 BR/BA suite with an ocean and skyline view (we were upgraded from a 1 BR/BA at no cost to us and without our asking). The room was spacious, comfortable and well appointed and was essentially a luxury beach apartment. The kids were in heaven, and so were we. Down at the resort, the kids greatly enjoyed the beach and both of the on-site pools, one an infinity pool with fountains and a hot tub and the other a sprawling lagoon pool with a waterfall and a slide that the adults enjoyed as well. Service throughout the resort was thoughtful and attentive, even at the lagoon pool which was packed with people during the very busy Labor Day weekend. They had a ton of activities scheduled for the kids throughout the weekend, some of which our kids took advantage of. As for the food, while we didn't eat at any of the resort restaurants, we did order lunch from the poolside cantina. While the fare was expensive (figure $15 for a chicken sandwich), the portions were sizable and the food was delicious. Kids' meals (priced at $8 and $9) were large enough to share and came with a side and a large cookie, which kept the kids happy and satisfied.
All in all, it was a wonderful stay, and we look forward to visiting again soon.
