Disney's Hilton Head Island Resort

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

A superb venue for a family vacation. Grandparents, parents, and three girls (10,8,5) all had a wonderful time. We stayed in a 2 bedroom accommodation that was five star clean and very well appointed. Lots of recreational activities on site. We did a dolphin tour seeing more dolphins than ever before; the kids loved it. The pool at the beach pavilion, with its bar and restaurant are a four minute shuttle from the DVC. Put thus location on your list for a family vacation that is Disney without the theme parks.

Kid and parent friendly resort. The Disney way is the only way. This resort has the MOST kids activities of any Disney Resort, nice pool, bike ride to the beach and a TON of Hidden Mickeys. It doesn't get better!

We had a wonderful time here. We originally planned to exchange vows on the beach there, but being from out of state the licensing became to complicated. The staff was more than accomodating though. Although they could not 'shut down' anything for that type of event, they had the information noted on our reservation. We have a very nice one bedroom and a complementary bottle of wine upon our arrival. Even though our room wasn't quite ready, the wait wasn't long and the manager provided a meal voucher for our inconvenience. You will definitely get the same 'Welcome Home' greeting and Disney magic here that you get at any other DVC resort. It was so worth the drive. Only thing was that, having never been to the area, the photos make the resort look deceptively remote. It is clustered with many other resorts, condos and vacation areas. However, there is a lot to do all over the area and you don't mind at all. Everyone is friendly and accommodating. We will definitely go again in the near future.

We stayed at this resort for the first time at the end of April. We have been DVC members since 1995 and have had the pleasure to stay at many of the resorts in Florida, California, and Hawaii. All in all this is a nice resort but the amenities are sparse. The shopping is not indicative of other Disney locations. The food services were most surprising. We found that a good meal could only be had by leaving the Resort. The staff when present are very nice and engaging but it just seems there were less of them here. The rooms are indicative of most of the DVC resorts. Ours was comfortable but we did encounter dirty dishes and pots and the A/C did not work correctly. I think the attention to detail is just a bit off. We are going back in July and I hope we have a better experience.

Unless you wake up at 6:00am be prepared for the earth shattering trash truck noise.This was on May 2, 2019. Never will stay again. Where is the common sense to managing this resort? The noise went on for over 15 minutes

My colleague and I enjoyed Hilton Head, staying at the Omni Hotel, as we extended our business trip for a “weekend break” from our children and families. We rented bikes this past Saturday to explore, and we wanted to see the Disney Resort to consider to return with our respective families for April vacation next year. We biked along the marina/resort side, and found an individual pulling kayaks out of the water. We biked towards him to ask about the tours he provides, and he promptly asked if we were guests at the resort. We politely informed him that we were not, but considering a stay for our families. We felt uncomfortable and he was very dismissive and rude. I inquired again about the activities, and he aggressively reinforced we were not welcome and did not engage in conversation with us. We biked away finding that interaction rude and appalling. As a business owner, I’m always polite and kind as a first impression is a lasting one. Unfortunately, this interaction was a concern for us. We have both been with our families to Walt Disney World in Orlando several times. We never had an unpleasant experience prior, but felt we should share about this unwelcoming experience.

As a family with 2 girls (8 & 10) we never expected an experience better than WDW but our kids are begging to return to Disney’s HHI Resort for our next vacation! The cast members are amazing at this resort - each and every one goes above and beyond to give the entire family that magical Disney feeling. Throughout our stay the cast members not only learned all of our names but they took time to do special things each day to make the experience so memorable for us. The beach house is great, the pools are so fun and the resort has many, many activities and spaces for great family time. The memories from our recent vacation are incredible and have us all anxious to return for more “Disney Magic”. Joe Caruso’s service was incredible. Not only was he knowledgeable, eager to help, and kind, he seemed to always be standing nearby whenever we had a question - whether at the beach, pool, the store or even riding bikes! Michelle was the first cast member we met when unloading our car and throughout our entire stay her friendliness and thoughtfulness was heart warming. Our kids enjoyed becoming her friend and looked for her whenever we left the room. The rec & pool staff - Shannon, Michelle, Rachel, Brittany (and many others!) were wonderful with our kids and made us all feel like part of their family - safe and welcomed no matter the time of day or night. Having Shadow at the resort is just one of the many unique features making this incredible resort a great place to call “home”. Can’t wait to return again soon. The nature and beauty of HHI make it an ideal vacation spot....Disney makes it even more special.

It was a great vacation for our family. We love the fun in this hotel. They have lots of activities. You will feel the joy of every people in the hotel. Unlike any hotel in the island. All they have to do is make the guests drunk so they can get lots of money to them. This is the best and fun place that i’ve been in Hilton head island. It is also near the shelter cove marina where me and my wife can hang out there and leave our children to the hotel. I will recommend this for everybody.

I love the place very cute and very clean place. I love disney since when I was young. I feel like in a wonderland. Not for kids but for adults only. Their food in the restaurants was very delicious. This is the best Hotel in the Hilton head island.

We are Disney Vacation Club members and this is one of our favorite spots to visit. We had our two-year-old granddaughter with us this time and she thoroughly enjoyed the pools, the visit with Pluto and the campfire. We also treated ourselves to making tie-dye T-shirts. It was easy enough for our two-year-old to do. It was great fun. The beach house is spectacular and the Lowcountry side is also has great activities. I would save my money and go elsewhere to eat. There are many places in Hilton head.
