We have stayed in a few condos on Hilton Head Island but this is our first time staying out at Sea Pines. We are very pleased with everything about this condo. They have done a beautiful job refurbishing one of the older condo developments in this area. The kitchen is large and well appointed. Breakfast bar and dining room table... More

We stayed at swallowtail with friends and were happy with the unit 2880. Beds and linens we nice. Not as large a unit as we've stayed at in the past but was satisfactory. Our friends stayed upstairs in the master which was very spacious. King bed, walk in shower and an upstairs sitting area. Our accommodations were twin beds with... More

We were very impressed with the significant improvements made to both bathrooms since last year. These areas were updated with new flooring, lighting, countertops, and fresh paint. They were very much needed. Upstairs, the large hot tub has been removed ( we never used it at all in 7 years ), and a huge shower enclosure now dominates that end... More

Upstairs bedroom king bed and separate sitting area with pull out sofa. The downstairs bedroom has 2 twin beds. Living room also with lots of seating and pull out sofa. 3... More

My parents have owned 2 weeks in the summer at SwallowTail since 1976 - Swallow Tail has been in the family since I was 6 months old. It began as a summer vacation spot for us but has now evolved nearly 40 years later to a family reunion spot. My parents still own 2 weeks and my 5 sisters and... More

Let me start off by saying that we own here and have owned here since before Swallowtail, inside SeaPines, on Hilton Head, was even built. Way back to the 70's. That was even before Marriott got into TimeShare. About 50% of the original owners from back then still own their units and most of the owners use their weeks every... More

Its seems like the place hasn't been updated since 1978. Paper thin walls, serviceable kitchen, barely average bathrooms, and the smell of "wet-dog" in the air...all with a Brady Bunch decor. I think a Best Western may have more modern decor. The Management really needs to update the place! The best thing about this place is the location - great... More

The a/c could not keep up with upstairs unless we kept all curtains closed. Mold was easy to spot in the air vents. We had a horrendous problem with fruit flies all week. Maintenance was attentive and housekeeping was responsive to our needs. We attended the "welcome breakfast" on Monday - what a joke! It was scheduled to start at... More
