Sandy Lane Hotel Review

: This 800-acre resort boasts a 7,000-square-foot pool and a 47,000-square-foot spa in a Romanesque building fronted by a waterfall. In addition, there are three golf courses (including one eighteen-hole course designed by Tom Fazio) and state-of-the-art tennis facilities. Culinary experiences range from romantic L'Acajou serving fresh island seafood beneath a canopy of mahogany trees to hands-on classes with expert chefs. Bottom line, Sandy Lane is about superlatives. But it is because of -- rather than despite -- the size that this property feels intimate. With only 112 residential-style rooms (each with a large private veranda), the vast resort is never overrun. With activities that include catamaran sailing, banana boat rides and even swimming with turtles, Sandy Lane is among our top picks for families.
