Recent guest reviews

We could not have asked for anything more here. Disney’s HH provided us with everything we needed for our trip; a fully stocked, roomy 1 bedroom condo, easy access to bike rentals, and they printed our boarding passes for us too! There is plenty for families to do here. Can’t wait to return!

We just spent the weekend celebrating our son’s 7th birthday with several other families, and can’t say enough great things about the Disney Beach Resort. The rooms were great, clean and spacious. Housekeeping went above and beyond and cleaned up our dishes after a brunch we cooked. The pool area is great and the staff is so friendly and helpful. We’ll definitely be back!

Great resort with intercoastal and ocean front access. We stayed in a two bedroom unit and were able to use the kitchen to save a few dollars on meals. Plenty things to do immediately around the resort with shipping and restaurants within walking distance. Will be back for another visit!

Unique and distinct place in Hilton Head. Very quaint place. Not the usual big resort in the island. Is not on the beach, but has a beach house five minutes crossing the highway. Very family oriented. Staff is typical Disney staff. Very friendly, professional and courteous. We had an issue with some unruly, loud,rowdy neighbors in the unit below us. Two adult couples doing a lot of noise at 3am in the porch right below us. We complained the next morning to the front desk. Cristina, front desk supervisor, was very kind and helpful to us and changed us to another room for the last night. Shameful that these type of people go to a place like this. This place is not for that kind of poeple.

My family visited this resort the first week of Nov. we had never been to South Carolina before...the area is stunning!! Upon our arrival, we were greeted with welcoming that only comes from a Disney cast member! About 20 mins after our arrival my son lost his “most favorite” (and the only shoes we brought for him), flip flop off of the dock. I inquired about buying another pair at their merchantile shop, but instead, the shoe was expertly fished out with an extending pool cleaning device from a cast member...he saved the day like a boss (totally above & beyond!)! The room was very clean & well stocked, the bed was comfy, the deck was peaceful,the transport drivers to the pool house/beach were full of wonderful information & seemed truly happy to be a work. The resort is full of fun activities throughout the day for family member of all ages. We already plan on returning next year at the same time...the pools were warmed and the beach was deserted, which was perfect for us! We spent the days shell searching, sand castle building, and dolphin watching! If customer service is important to can’t go wrong here!!

We arrived on Halloween 2017 and got checked in with a choice of rooms. Service at the front desk was amazing (helpful and courteous). We had a one bedroom room for two days and then moved to a 2 bedroom to accommodate family coming in. Disney made the move over to the new room so much easier by letting us move earlier than the standard checkin time. This saved us from packing up the truck or hauling all our luggage to the front desk. Both rooms were clean, bright, updated and had everything we needed. The kitchen is great for breakfast and making light lunches. My wife and I both used the Jacuzzi tub (big enough for two). The beds are very comfortable and even made my wife declare that we need to update our bed back home. Thanks Disney :-) The Halloween events were fun and centered toward the children. Each cast member we talked to was friendly and engaged in extended conversation. One afternoon while I was on the balcony, John (manager?) walked by on the sidewalk and asked if there was anything we needed. We didn't but he offered to call the front desk and ask for him if anything came up. Now that's service! We are DVC members and huge Disney fans. We like the marsh setting for the resort and the option for the beach house just a couple miles away. This was very well run complete with pool and snack bar! It was sad to leave but we will be back.

We love this resort! It's Disney without all the hype of the parks! It's the quality you expect from Disney with well maintained buildings and grounds. The staff are wonderful. We have been in the spring and we've been there for New Year's Eve and have never been disappointed. The beach house makes it all the more special.

Full disclosure; I am lifelong Disney fan and a 20 year member of the DVC. My beloved wife and I have been to this resort on several occasions and it just keeps getting better. Disney’s Hilton Head Island Resort is something special. The resort is 20 years old, but it presents as brand new. To me staying at this resort is about relaxing, but if you choose they offer many activities for your enjoyment. The resort only offers a counter service for meals at the resort proper and the beach house, but this is because Hilton Head Island offers many culinary delights. The staff here is well steeped in Disney tradition and will offer you a first class experience at this low country resort.

This beautiful resort is located on a salt marsh in Shelter Cove on Hilton Head Island. Our room was in the main building , the Inn. The studio was plenty of space for two people, and the kitchenette was handy to have. Our balcony was bigger than the ones in the other buildings (two rockers and a table for four) and partially covered. Every morning free coffee and tea were served in the lobby and a hot cider and lemonade are served in the afternoon with cookies. The hotel was built around the trees, so the property is shady, with Spanish moss hanging from all the trees. The resort has lots to offer - activities, including campfires, nature walks, kids activities, poolside activities, and bike and kayak rentals. The main building has a nice lounge room on the first floor with a pool table. While not on the beach, they do have a really nice beach house, which has a pool, a quick service window for lunch and access to the beach. There is a nice lounge and shower facilities available. It is about 1.5 miles away from the resort and very easy to bike to. There is limited parking and they do have a free shuttle to it from the resort. The resort does not have a restaurant, but offers quick service meals for breakfast and lunch at Tide Me Over, and has a small store. You can buy a refillable mug there for soda and coffee. There are lots of restaurants and shops nearby, many of which you can bike to. Shelter Cove is within walking distance and has several restaurant choices. Many restaurants offer a discount on your bill if you show them your room key. There is a Kroger close by, as well as a Walmart if you want to stock up supplies in your room. You can also head down to Savanah - it’s about an hour away and the historic district is a great day trip. All the cast members are wonderful! They always greeted you when walking by and would stop and chat with you. If you arrive in the afternoon on Friday, Saturday or Sunday, make sure to stop at registration and say hi to the resort’s mascot, Shadow. She is a super sweet dog who loves belly rubs!

This was our first time at this resort. Of course it was super clean and had great amenities. My husband and I went for our anniversary trip in mid October of 2017. Rates are better than peak times. Also not many kids - I don't mind kids - but a little concerned as it was an anniversary trip. We chose Disney because it was different and always enjoy their quality. I was pleasantly surprised of the location. It is in Shelter Cove. We were upgraded to a 2 bedroom villa on the marsh. Beautiful views and very large porch to enjoy it from. LOVED this location. So easy to get in and out and around the island. Previously, we stayed inside Shipyard at a large resort and it took so much time to get to our rooms from the parking lot and back and forth. At Disney's resort - your car is very near the room and you can literally walk across the marina to restaurants and the "mall" is also within walking distance. There is a wonderful pool on property and a beach club just across the way in Palmetto Dunes. It was fabulous! We are definitely coming back to this resort with our kids. And my husband and I would gladly stay here again - just the 2 of us!
