Family Weekend Getaway

My family and I spent the weekend after Thanksgiving at Hilton Head. The hotel is nestled amongst trees and right beside the ocean. It was great! We had a really nice time in the pool, walking along the beach - which is pretty private. The staff was very nice and helpful in suggesting easy bike routes and other things we could do around town.

Great Resort

Beautiful resort with very good amenities! Loved the view from our room - it overlooked the pool and the beach. Take a walk along the beach, or rent a bike along the bike trail extending through the resort and the island.

Very Nice Stay

My wife and I went with 2 teenagers and had a great time. Hotel and rooms are very nice! Staff was great even though it was a busy time. My son had a bad jelly fish sting and the hotel was quick to dispatch someone to check on him. The only area that could receive a little attention is the pool bar. It could have been spruced up and cleaned up a bit--just slightly smelly. It was noticeable given that every other area of the hotel was so perfectly clean and maintained. Would certainly return. Note that because of slight distance to beach and dunes, no rooms seem to have that close-up ocean view.

Fresh and New

This hotel is very clean and up-to-date. Special touches include the motion activated floor lighting and a very brightly lit bathroom. The only downside was the tiny balcony/bookshelf. Front desk staff were exceedingly quick, friendly and efficient. Restaurant was of surprisingly high caliber. Wait staff was very knowledgeable. Keisha was especially helpful.
