Clean and On the Beach

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 5 weeks agovia mobile
Our first visit. The location is great, a short walk on the boardwalk over the dunes. You can pay for a trolley tour though St Augustine and there is a pick up for it right in front of the hotel.
You can rent an umbrella and beach chairs from the beach shack by the pool. Beach towels are complimentary. There is a restaurant on site (the sandwich I ordered was very good) and a bar by the pool. There is a play area with sand for the kids by the pool, though I did not see a shallow pool area. I may have missed it. The rooms did not have carpet a plus with sand. The beds were comfortable. The walls are a bit thin as we could hear people going up and down the hallway and a dog barking from across the hall through out the night. The bathroom was well stocked with towels and the lighted mirror was a nice upgrade. The staff were friendly. Definitely would return and recommend.

My high school friend and I spent several amazing days at the Guy Harvey Resort an simply loved it! The staff was warm, welcoming and always happy to engage us as we came and went on our adventures in the area. I had had a mother-in-law who lived nearby many years ago and was familiar with the area. However, staying right on the beach in this lovely resort was an experience in and of itself and one neither of us can wait to repeat! The resort is very handily located with many restaurants and attractions within minutes. But I will say that we ate every meal at the resort restaurant, the Santiago, and found each meal delicious and the service beyond compare. The one meal we ate elsewhere was disappointing and we were sorry we didn't stay with the Santiago! The room was spacious and spotlessly clean. Our balcony overlooked the beautiful pool and the amazing beach just yards beyond it. The only thing we would have changed about our stay was to make it longer! I would highly recommend this incomparably gorgeous location for anyone's visit to the St. Augustine/Anastasia Island area!

Room tip: Make sure you try the resort restaurant as the food and service is better than most of the off site options!

We chose this resort for two reasons: proximity to the beach and the artwork. We were not disappointed. This resort is clean and well maintained and there's artwork around every corner and in the rooms. We chose a ground floor parking lot facing room as our stay was for just one night and we wanted to reserve extra cash for meals and tours. The best views are on the top floors facing the Atlantic (lower Atlantic-facing room views are obstructed by sand dunes, but you do get a view of the pool). Loved that there was no carpet. The floor was porcelain or luxury vinyl planks--very clean and attractive. There's a roll-out table under a wall-mounted shelf --nice for working on the computer or a casual in-room meal (a microwave and mini fridge makes that easy to pull off). The bed looks like a big marshmallow, but it was super comfy. Appreciated the lit-from-behind mirror in the bathroom as well as the large, clean, and plentiful towels. That shower (great water pressure and temperature) was just the thing after a hot day spent touring nearby historic St. Augustine. Though we did not have a view of the ocean from our room, it was only a short walk from there, coffee (from the in-room Keurig) in hand, to the beach. There's a wooden bridge over the dune and then views and sand and ocean for miles! This resort has a building in front of the building that houses the rooms. Here you'll find Santiago's Florida Kitchen and Craft Bar, a cute gift shop, and lounges filled with comfy furniture and artwork. The space between the buildings holds outdoor tables and chairs as well as quotes about the importance of preserving our natural resources. Out back is the Surf Shack and pool and beach rental shop. We liked the laid-back comfort of the hotel, loved our king-bed room and would book here again--perhaps at one of those ocean-facing rooms!

Room tip: Ask for a higher floor east-facing room if ocean views are important to your stay.

Location was exceptional, check-in was super fast and easy, rooms were spacious and clean. The only downside was the exhaust fan in the bathroom was a bit loud but if you kept the door closed it was fine. Be was super comfortable. Interior was a bit dated but overall really nice. We would absolutely book again.

Guy Harvey Resort rooms are nicely furnished and have the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in. The resort has direct access to the beach and has a pool with a bar. The breakfast at the Santiago Restaurant was quite good. The staff are all friendly and cater to your every need. Guy Harvey has art work throughout the resort and rooms that bring the sea to life. I would definitely stay here again.

We stayed in an ocean-front room and enjoyed the view very much. We saw so many cute dogs! The staff was friendly and the room was clean. I would have loved a hot tub on the property, but other than that, it was perfect. It took us about 12 minutes to get to downtown St. Augustine, by car.
