Yes it does exist! This resort is a super-family friendly place to unwind and have fun without the breakneck pace of one of the parks. You set your own pace—there is plenty to do on property and off, but you don’t feel like you have to schedule, schedule, schedule. The on property activities are family oriented and some are very educational. Never once did my kids say they were bored. They were always begging to go play something else or ride bikes or go see Shadow, the property’s real live Mascot. I can’t say enough about the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. They made us feel at home at all times. This is right up there with the Disney Cruise for us in terms of family fun vacation. We are already planning our return trip for next year.
It was pretty incredible coming up to the resort and having friendly service that greets you at the door. It really has the right amount of Disney, not too much and enough that you feel secluded in a beautiful scenic location. Lots to do, and tons of events on the resort. Ended up booking an extra night!
We (couple) stayed at DHH for first time using DVC points in late January. Wonderful, thoughtful and incredible customer service by all staff members we encountered. The property is well kept with nice features like hammocks, corn hole, and other laid back things to do. The only negative was the main pool and jacuzzi were closed for maintenance (Disney notified us in advance and was expected as it was January). The private beach house and pool were open and very nice. It was rather cool the day we visited the Beach House / Pool and the Disney Cast member was providing complimentary cocoa and hot teas -- nice touch!
We decided to take a trip to Hilton Head in the low season and it couldn’t have been a better decision! We stayed in one of the 2 bedroom villas and it was so spacious. King in one room and two queens in the other. A single and a double fold out in the living means that you can accommodate a lot of people. Full kitchen and a roomy balcony. The beauty of low season is that there aren’t too many people there. Sure, it’s a little chilly but being from Florida we were happy for the change. My main takeaway from this resort is the customer service. It. Is. Phenomenal!! From the moment you check in and throughout the entire stay the staff couldn’t have been any nicer. Always stopped to say hello or to share a toy with my little girl. I have experienced Disney customer service but this was by far the best. We had a rainy day but that didn’t keep us from checking out all the activities and amenities around the property...horseshoes, mini golf, free DVD rentals, daily activities (my favorite was the hot chocolate bar) and much more! Breakfast at the little cafe on property was fantastic and reasonably priced. The Beach House is a short shuttle, bike, or car ride away. There is a quick service cafe there as well as a heated pool and beach access. We are already planning a return trip and I highly recommend this resort to anyone, especially those traveling with small children. A+!!!
Full disclosure to start: we are DVC members who stayed on out time share "points" so can't speak to pricing or value. This was our first visit to Hilton Head, we came for a few days prior to visiting Savannah and Charleston mainly to see the resort and we were very impressed. We had a 2-bedroom unit, which was very spacious, clean and comfortable. The staff was unbelievably nice and accommodating--so nice that our son joked it was like we had been beamed into some kind of alternate universe. Even in December the grounds were really nice and there are a lot of opportunities for recreation right on site, and the location along the marina allowed for a nice place to take a walk (and the boats decorated for Christmas were an added treat). There are restaurants and shops within walking distance, and other things including Sea Pines are just a short drive (at least in winter traffic). While the weather was too cool for swimming for our taste that didn't stop some other guests, and the pool area was very nice. There were a lot of large family groups arriving to spend the holidays, so likely a lot of opportunities for kids to meet others their age. Overall we found the resort just as impressive as the Disney Vacation Club resorts that were under the close scrutiny of being on Disney property. Only drawback might be the fact that the resort is not on the ocean, but it is an easily manageable walk to the beach house and there is also some parking and the resort runs a shuttle. The beach house and pool were both very nice as was the beachfront, and the beach house has a gated entry requiring a hotel key card so it should only be open to hotel guests.
We had some reward money to use up so my husband and I stayed the night without the kids. (Sorry, kids). It was a rather slow time on the island so they upgraded our room. The room and view were even better than we had expected. Bed and pillows were surprisingly comfortable. The only minor complaint I had was I could have used a safety light when I woke up in the middle of the night and couldn’t find the night-switch. Good job, Disney!
This place is amazing! Since its Disney you still get the Disney touch without being in the hustle and bustle of the theme parks. Very laid back, castmembers are awesome! Beach house is only about a mile away, nice walk or take their free shuttle. The only down thing was their pool and hot tub was closed as it is their slow season which is understandable. I highly recommend and will return!
We were not DVC members but we stayed here in July 2017. They have a character appearance by Goofy that the kids can take pictures with as well as a fun Disney themed pool with waterslide. They play music from all the Disney movies at the pool as well and the world famous Disney life guards are on duty at that pool too. At the front desk upon check in, they give the kids Disney pins and someone is always standing out there waving with a big Mickey Mouse mit on their hand. They have Disney merchandise in the little shop on the property as well. We loved staying there and will be going back. There are lots of kids activities that are planned and the camp counselors and lifeguards take turns doing the arts and crafts or whatever the game is. Also the entire staff, including the housekeepers were super nice and friendly! I didn't have a problem with the resort not being on the beach because the shuttle comes by very regularly so we never had to wait very long.
We stayed here the week before Christmas and checked out on Christmas Eve. One of the BEST Disney Resorts we have stayed at yet. Very quite and tranquil, Great food and a ton of fun activities for the kids! We will 100% be back as soon as possible!
We are DVC members and wanted to take advantage of the few points needed to book a stay here in January! What a gem of a place! The staff were AMAZING! Even though it was cold, there were plenty of activities to keep us busy. We rode bikes to the beach house and entertained ourselves with other events planned by the staff. Michelle, one of the staff members, even remembered our favorite snack and had it delivered to our room one evening to surprise us upon our return from exploring the island. We will definitely be returning!
