Critic Reviews



Kids love the incredible pool area with a water park, fountains, geysers, and waterfalls. A more serene adults-only pool lies under oaks by the bay.

Travel + Leisure


The look is old-guard traditional at the 405-room resort on 550 acres overlooking Mobile Bay; the pool, tennis, and fitness center fronts a private lake.



On Mobile Bay, the public areas reflect a bygone era of elegance and are sprinkled with historical mementos. The expansive grounds are beautifully landscaped and change seasonally. The original structure that was built in the 1800s has long been gone from fire, but the area is rich with history.
