                      The staff is excellent. The resort is very family friendly and something to do all day including, the pool, the beach, bike riding, feeding the turtles, EATING on property, games for kids, movies at the pool, and so much more. I have to say, my stay was very relaxing.

                      Staff, Restaurants on property, entertainment, on beach, beautiful sunrise and sunset.

                      Pool water was too warm for my taste... however it was the middle of summer.

                      Enjoyed the stay Hilton head is a beautiful area. The beds were comfortable. The kids loved the beach.

                      I must admit the fact that this was a four star hotel I expected a lot more in the accomodations. The pool area was disappointing and the resort view we supposedly paid for was that of the side parking lot.... I enjoyed Myrtle Beach's Kingston Plantation and even Compass cove we had just as much fun at the resort itself and the sites in Myrtle were great for the entire family. .... May not stay here again....Mrs. Darden

                      Hotel is in a great location right on the water. The hotel is so easy to deal with from front desk to the pool to the beach just beyond the pool area. There are bike rentals next to pool, towels available next to pool, bar next to pool ! The room was very nice and the bed so comfortable ! Staff was present everywhere to help you or cleaning rooms, etc. Parking is easy, check in and out easy. We had a wonderful experience and plan to go back once or twice a year now ! Eat breakfast in BRELLA on site and then go out the exit and down to Coligny Plaza or around town to eat. Outlet malls out 278. Hilton Head is just a lovely , safe place !

                      9.2

                      The furnishings in the room were old/refurbished and looked it but the grounds were absolutely breathtaking. The beach and seashore were terrific.

                      Nothing. Everything was great.

                      I loved the buffet, the kindness of the staff, the calmness of the staff and surroundings and the great feeling of the resort.

                      I wish they would have advertised what was going on at the resort a little better. We had to deeply research places to go and where to eat.

                      5.0

                      I like seeing the alligators when driving through to the resort.

                      I didn't like the fact that when I booked the room it said that it was only 21 miles from Savannah, GA when in fact it was over 40 miles. Also the room didn't come with a refridgerator or microwave. You have to pay extra ($10 a day for fridge). The view from my room was also awlful. The only thing I could see from my balcony was the top of the building.

                      7.8

                      Great location, with private access to the beach.

                      Inadequate Internet access in the room.

                    • Couple
                      7.0

                      Location on the island is excellent - pool area very nice and good service at the pool bar. Just a very short walk to the beach. Breakfast was good and the staff friendly. Riley's Plaza was an excellent place for a drink and dinner and Harbour Town was lovely to visit at sunset!

                      Hotel is looking so tired and dated - decor is old and rundown and furniture in the rooms is pretty past it. Our balcony was carpeted and was full of cobwebs, dead insects and general outdoor stuff which had accumulated over the years and hasn't ever been cleaned. Am not sure why a balcony would be carpeted anyway!! Room service ended at 10pm with the hotel bar closing at 11pm so if you want something after that then it's a cab ride to the nearest shops/bars.

                    • Couple
                      6.2

                      The staff was nice. The location was convenient and right on the beach. Room was in good condition, and every room had a balcony.

                      The food was good but there wasn't much variety, all three restaurants had the exact same menus. Irritating mostly because the resort is pretty secluded, you have to drive at least 10 minutes to get to any kind of other food. The interior of the hotel is a bit outdated, for the price we paid I would have liked to feel like I was in a little more luxury, especially since I have stayed in some very nice Crown Plaza Resorts and this was below par compartively. I realize it is Hilton Head, but I would not really recommend this resort for a young couple, we were surrounded by retirees and felt extremely out of place. Again, I know Hilton Head is a retirement area but I wasn't expecting to be so outnumbered!!

                      It needs a little refreshing.
