Property was beautiful. Tram driver John was excellent and i formative. Food was great highly recomend the 36oz steak at the restaurant where the general store is located. Beaches were wonderful. Only complaint would be that maintenance was needed in the bathroom. The flap inside was broken causing the toilet to run unless you went in and fixed it. Could have more information about the properrty and amenities in the room or localized but staff was very helpful when asked.

Villa on the Beach

Pros: Treated very well by the staff, very well organized, helpful concierge!
Location: Long, clean beach on the ocean side, biking, kayaking, hiking, and several restaurants on plantation property. More shopping in town.
Initially, we booked a villa on the plantation that turned out to be far from the beach. Omni Hotel staff helped us upgrade to a condo/villa with direct beach access, for a bit more money per day - well worth the difference to be able to wake up and walk on the beach, and to see and hear the ocean from our balcony! We were able to use the amenities of the Omni Hotel, and their shuttle service allowed us to leave the car parked and get to activities and restaurants anywhere on the plantation.

I paid for a "villa" and I got an old hotel room

Pros: When you could get to the ocean, it was beautiful. Beautiful grounds and layout.
Cons: Don't try to rip people off and nickel and dime them to death. That is the most annoying thing EVER.
Location: Beautiful island setting with lots to see.
I booked the Amelia Island Plantation Resort on Travelocity with the promise of a resort view villa for a reasonable price including resort fee. I thought this was strange, and the hairs on the back of my neck raised, but I thought -- that's what Travelocity says, so....it must be true. I did not look at the total price as I was in a hurry to get this booked because my son and his wife had just had a baby. When I got there, I found out that my "villa" was an old hotel room on the 2nd floor of a condo complex with no elevator. Drag your 50-lb. bag with baby clothes in it up two flights of stairs. The "villa" had a small flat screen TV, dirty carpet and a small patio that hadn't been cleaned or cared for in awhile. A flyer in the room let you know that housekeeping was extra if you wanted it any sooner than every 3 days. No information on what kind of food was offered through room service, etc. I did not expect a beach front room for the rate, but I did expect more than what was given me. Also, at the end of the stay, I find out that the resort fee was not included in the price of the room, but the "overall" price. If I had known that, I would never have booked it. Beware!!! This place is a scam. I'm sure the people that actually want to pay the huge prices get a wonderful stay. Those of us attracted to a beach property for an affordable price just get disappointed. Today the price on Travelocity is higher. Good luck!

Nice villa very close to beach

My husband and I stayed at The Sandcastle Villas. The room decor was beautiful. Going to sleep and awakening to the sound of the ocean was awesome! We toured Amelia Island and Fernandina Beach. The hotel staff were very courtious and extremely helpful with recommending area sites and restaurants. Great stay! Great ocean view!

Don't miss this little piece of Paradise!

Probably THE best resort we've ever stayed at.  Incredibly manicured gardens, golf courses, etc.  Beach was amazing.  Room had an incredible ocean front view.  The epitome of beach serenity.  Staff was very courteous and service oriented.  Not a single problem the entire week we were there.  Really liked the adults only pool area.  Only a few minor negatives.  After paying an expected resort fee, we were surprised to have to rent beach chairs at an additional cost.  We weren't aware that many restaurants and bars on the property did not accept cash.  Again, not a big deal that we had to charge things to the room, but it's easy to lose track of what you're spending when you do that.  Menus for restaurants on property didn't have much variety. We were on the beach, but very little seafood offered.  It would have been nice to have a shuttle to the town of Ferdinandina, which all of the employees raved about.
