No complaints. Everything was wonderful! Very clean, excellent amenities both inside the villa and outside, spacious with all of the comforts of home. Would definitely stay here again! I highly recommend.

Enjoyed accomodations so close to shops, groceries, movie theater, ocean ++. Great bicycle paths under trees all the way to beach within Shipyard Plantation which has great security and controlled access. Good golf and just roaming around if you want.

Have never been to Hilton Head and thought we would visit. This resort is not on the beach. If we should go back I will not go in summer..too many people and we will only stay at beach property. Thanks

We had a 2 bedroom unit and it was really clean and spacious. It was perfect for 2 families (4 adults and 2 kids). The decor is a bit dated, but the place is kept up well. The rental came with a free bike rental (2 bikes) from pelican (the pelican people weren't the nicest or easiest to deal with but that is a different review). The property has a very small pool next to the units, but you can use the lazy river pool at the clubhouse (Coral Sands). That was a great pool with a bar. The pool was just not very refreshing because it was pretty warm water and it was SO HOT outside this week. It is a short drive to the beach (private access) and not much further for the public access (coligny beach). All in all we had a great time, it was a great area and I would stay again!

Every member of the staff we met was friendly and knowledgeable. The unit was clean and comfortable. The welcome party was great. We also attended one of the art workshops they presented. We had fun learning how to make a sugar scrub and painting a wine glass. I would highly recommend this resort.

Older condo that has been updated, good electronics (TV, etc) except very slow wifi, nice kitchen except icemaker was extremely slow (we bought bags of ice twice). Nice pool across parking lot with gas grills. The location is great within HH - in Shipyard Plantation, able to use the beach in Shipyard as well as the large pool with Lazy River at Coral Sands nearby. Place was clean, HVAC worked well. Good place to go with kids.

The accommodations were okay but there was a lack of cooperation by the front desk. I had phoned in a request more than a week prior to arrival stating that I was taking a red eye flight in and would appreciate being able to check in early. We got there around 11:00 and absolutely nothing had been done or was being done to honor the request thus we had to hang around until regular check in time while being very tired. I am sure that they could have advised the housekeeping staff of the request and seen that the unit assigned to us would have been given some priority service. Also there were no screens on the bedroom windows and there were no bars in the shower.

The unit was in dire need of an update - from the old wallpaper in the kitchen to the countertops. There was lots of mildew in the showers and the eaves were rotting out over the deck. The bedspread was old and it definitely did not look like other Gold Crown resorts in which we have stayed.

We enjoyed our stay. It had a full size washer / dryer in the unit, which was nice. They do not provide any coffee, shampoo, etc. as many resorts do, but we did receive an email warning us of this. We would stay here again.

It was the perfect weather & location! However, the twin beds in the guest room were totally unexpected! We would have rather had a full sized bed & a cot. All s o the shower door in the master bath would not close completely!
