Promising Review: “This was a great family vacation, we were a group of 14 people and everyone had a great time! The staff is very accommodating and ensure that you enjoy your stay. Bermudas is the best place for breakfast, the food is fantastic and the best part was our waitress Lou Ann, she waited on us the entire week and provided the best service, super friendly and accommodating. She was the best way to start our day of fun! I definitely recommend this resort for family fun!”

Promising Review: “Being from Tampa, we’ve been to Saddlebrook dozens of times over the years. The resort is huge, the pools are great. Good place to take the kids…The staff is top notch, if you have a special request, they do everything they can do accommodate, even on a tight or limited timeline. Definitely recommend this for families, group gatherings, or just a quick getaway.”

The hotel is beautiful, with great amenities in the perfect location to visit downtown Tampa…We ended up at the hotel late one night with a large group of tired teenagers and parents who had been through a difficult day. Felicia waited on our group with patience and a smile on her face. We will be forever grateful.”

Promising Review: “Awesome resort for group trips – Visited with a group of college friends and loved it. You are required to use Caddy most times on the courses and they are some of the most difficult courses we have ever played. there is a poker room and skeet shooting. Lots of outdoor fire pits for hanging out…Would love to go back.”
