This Hilton Garden Inn is located within the Sawgrass Village shopping center in Ponte Vedra. Located on the East Coast of Florida, families are less than 2 miles from the beach and minutes away from the TPC Sawgrass championship golf course, when staying at this hotel.
Kids will love the heated outdoor pool after a day at the beach and parents will love relaxing or getting a workout in at the fitness center. Sawgrass Village offers families numerous nearby restaurants and a Publix supermarket to pick up any snacks or forgotten items. The onsite hotel restaurant, which serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, is also a delicious spot for families to enjoy after a day in the sand, at the pool or on the golf course.

The 127 guestrooms and suites feature plank flooring and carpets, a mini-fridge and a microwave. Complimentary Wi-Fi can be found in all of the guestrooms. Cribs and rollaway beds are available upon request.

Additionally, the large and spacious suites feature one king or two queen beds, a balcony and a separate living room area that includes a sofa. An additional rollaway bed could comfortably fit in the suites. Two flat-screen televisions and a large wet bar can also be found in the suites.
The hotel was clean, friendly staff and easy access food, drink and services. The hotel bar makes it easy to have a late night snack or drink without leaving the hotel. There is also a good happy hour and daily menus.
Staff was wonderful, location was perfect to access multiple beaches, plenty of parking, and plenty of shops/restaurants within walking distance.
Our room smelled a little funny when entering it, and breakfast is not included in the room's price. But there was always hot coffee/tea in the morning, and chilled water and a freshly baked snack available in the afternoon in the entry area.
I would highly recommend this hotel.
The hotel's outdoor, heated swimming pool is a great place for the kids to play and splash while parents relax on the surrounding lounge chairs. Restrooms can be found nearby and pool towels are provided. The pool is open from sunrise to dusk; no lifeguards are on duty.
The white sandy Florida beaches are about 3 or 4 miles away from the hotel and a free hotel shuttle can easily transport families to the sand.
There is one onsite restaurant at this Hilton Garden Inn that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. Several additional restaurants are steps away from the hotel in the Sawgrass Village. Starbucks brand coffee can be found in the lobby throughout the day and kids should be on the look-out for cookies in the lobby in the evenings!
This casual pub is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and is connected to the hotel. Families can start the day with a made-to-order breakfast and end the day with delicious sandwiches, burgers or salads. Televisions, always with the game on, surround the restaurant and there is outdoor seating, as well. Make sure the kids finish their meal, because there is an ice cream shop located right next door to Mulligan's Pub.

The Art of Smart Timing
Peak season for Ponte Vedra and this Hilton Garden Inn is January to June, however the Florida weather can be nice a majority of the year for those who live in chillier locales.
Jacksonville International Airport is about 45 minutes from the Hilton Garden Inn. Ponte Vedra is located on the East Coast of Florida along the Atlantic coastline and is about 35 minutes north of St. Augustine.
Families can easily walk to many restaurants and shops, which are only steps away from the hotel within the same shopping center. A Publix supermarket is also steps from the hotel. But a rental car is suggested to venture around town when staying here.
For Mom and Dad
Championship golf course TPC Sawgrass is within walking distance to the hotel. A free hotel shuttle can also transport the golf enthuasist in the family to the links, as well.
