the property is fantastic!

I have stayed at Talking Stick a dozen or more times - always an amazing experience.

The friendly front desk lady greeted us with such a welcoming smile and surprised us with an upgrade to a Gold Club room. I haven't won much in the past, but I felt like we did so we were very excited and grateful! The best part was meeting concierge associates Connie and Charles in the Tower Lounge who helped out in the early evenings.They truly made our stay the best and we're forever grateful to them for kindness, generosity and warm hospitality. Thank you, Charles and Connie! We will definitely be back to see you guys! :)

Did not like having to always go through the casino to enter or leave the property. Restaurants were mostly open stands. Not good dining options for a facility not near town.

Awesome casino

Everything

The staff and amenities were outstanding. I was impressed with the kindness, promptness and professionalism displayed here! It was disappointing that the spa and fitness center were closed as well as some restaurants. But overall it was a lovely place to stay!

N/A

Not kid friendly at all. If you want kids to be accompanied by a parent there needs to be a separate hotel entrance versus a casino entrance. Also the pool service was super slow. Hire more staff to serve the amount of people at the pool...hour wait, won’t stay here again and will advise others to not as well.

We booked a room and requested 2 queen beds. They gave us one king for 3 people. When we asked to change rooms the front desk staff was unapologetic and rude and offered a roll away at $25 a night. The services at other areas of the resort was good but the front desk staff that checked us in was frustratingly rude.

lovely resort. the Orange Sky was not open yet and that was a huge disappointment. We did eat at Tash but it had a limited menu in our opinion but good food and nice setting. The Ocean Trail food was so-so and and we had to find a place to go eat our food -- I realize much is caused by the pandemic and mandates. Staff was helpful and courteous.

The hotel and casino were very clean. The golf course is way over played and the range is in poor conditions. There is almost no grass to hit off of. The carts were filthy each morning with tees, wrappers and trash inside. The golf courses are in fair to poor conditions. Way to much play and to many brown spots or disease on greens, fairways and tee boxes. Management did not seem to care when we complained. Also, children were allowed to play during mid day that had not experience on the course. This was a disappointing experience.

Although the buffet wasn't open and their seafood joint was "to go" only the gaming area was easy to navigate, lots of people were winning. The pool area was very nice with games like jenga and corn hole. The pool itself was wonderful, nice and warm, good amount of lounge chairs. If you spent $150 on food and drinks you got specialty seating or you could rent a cabana.

Have stayed twice now and each time has been wonderful. Rooms are spacious and clean! Love the golf courses and casino on site. Everything you need is right there! Would definitely recommend staying there!

Enjoyed our stay Rooms were good staff was helpful

I always stay hear, great place with casino. Can’t beat it
