Had Dinner the first night at The Beach Club. We sat upstairs. Dinner menu the same for either the bar upstairs or dining downstairs. We didn't know this. Sandy the waitress upstairs couldn't be bothered it seemed. She was upset a table of 6 adults and 6 kids had come in. Seems odd since that's good tip money. She claimed... More

We enjoyed a rental home off of Tarpon Dr in June 2014. Our 3 generation family, with ages ranging from 4 to 70, absolutely enjoyed the stay. The beach was less than a 5 minute walk away, and the pools for us were just a quick golf card ride away. This was our first visit to Fripp Island, and we... More

122 Captain John Fripp. Waited over an hour past check-in because our room wasn't ready. Had not been cleaned and was VERY dirty! Management was rude and uncaring. Condo is old and dirty! Not worth what we paid for the week!

We are about to head on to Fripp Island for our tenth year on the Island's wonderful beach. The Beach Club is a treat! We have rented four different homes on the island in the last ten years - the last six spent in the same wonderful rental home. We have rented thru Fripp Island Resort and vrbo.com. We have... More

This is a one bedroom first floor condo in the first building right next to the adult pool shown in the picture above. This condo was moldy, all vents were black, and you could smell the mold. Also, the tub/shower fixtures were probably original and were dated, discolored, and clogged with hard water. The tub was discolored and there was... More

The resort is beautiful and relaxing. We always see tons of wildlife during our visits. There are several pools and the beach area is kept clean. The island seems targeted toward families and older people. Not too many young adults. But a peaceful getaway is good for everyone!

We dropped off our daughter who is interning on Fripp Island this summer. The resort put us in a Sun suite for one night. It was clean and beautiful. One queen bed and built in bunk beds with onsuite bathroom behind a pocket door. Efficiency kitchen. All activities available. We will be back and stay much longer. Thanks to the... More

I find out one week before arrival that a club pass is needed to go to restaurants, shops, golf courses, and other recreation. The owner of the home we are renting did not pay the annual club pass fee so our family has no access to any of these amenities and necessities. This is the most dishonest crap I have... More

The island and the beach are beautiful. There are no hotels and traffic is great, especially if you rent a golf cart. We stayed in the Captain John Fripp Villas in mid-April. The ocean-view is fabulous. The villa, on the hand, was somewhat disappointing. Its rated 'Silver' which means the decor is somewhat dated so I expected that. I was... More
