Just OK

The staff was slow, sometimes there would not be anyone at a counter to ask a question. Its set pretty far back from the beach, so it was a bit of a walk. Wasn't that impressed for the cost of the room.

Great Resort - would gladly return again

It was our first time staying here. I booked it after reading all the good reviews and it didn't disappoint. We really enjoyed this resort. It basically has it's own beach right out the back door, within 3 minutes walking distance. It even has its own shower/bathroom area to rinse off the sand. The outdoor pool was big and very child friendly with a huge toddler pool on one end. The deck was always clean with lots of umbrellas and shade. Service was excellent inside and out in the pool area. Our room was clean and spacious for having two beds. Service at the front desk was very helpful and guest friendly. Would definitely book again if we come back to Hilton Head.

Family friendly

Hotel grounds were nice and I liked the location. However, in my opinion it is not a four star resort. Although the resort was renovated it still has an old feel with the design, low ceilings etc. Staff was friendly and attentive but there was always trash and food out in hallways and by pool that should have been whisked out of sight quickly in my opinion. Ocean views are not really ocean views. Elevators are old and slow and cannot manage the crowds. Will rent a house next time for same price.

Great Birthday Trip

This hotel was wonderful. It was perfectly located on the island right on the beach. The rooms were neat, new and clean. The restaurants were terrific. I didn't have not one bad meal. The free wifi it offered never worked, which was a huge disappointment and the hotel didn't offer a shuttle service. But other than that it was great. Shops near by and many people road bikes. The staff was friendly, but most were foreign, and from all over the world. Therefore some personalities were hit or miss, but I think the not so warm & fuzzy staff simply had a language barrier.

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.
