I just returned from a one-week (Monday-Friday) stay at Hammock Beach - this was our third time taking the family here in the past 4 years. I'll start off by saying that this place is the perfect, perfect spot for families with kids, especially younger kids. We were booked in the same 3 BR/3 BA room as last year on the first floor of the main tower. The convenience of being near the lobby and a short walk to the beach was perfect for us given we have three kids (9, 6, 2) and lots of stuff to carry around.
The best attraction here is the sandy beach and great waves. It didn't disappoint this trip as we spent every afternoon here with the two older kids boogy-boarding and we kept the expenses down by packing a cooler full of snacks, waters, and adult liquid refreshments which did the trick. The pool complex was fun as normal not as crowded as I was used to since the schools in the South and Florida were already back in session.
We didn't eat at any of the resort restaurants as they are generally pricey and the quality of the food doesn't meet the price. We ate all of our breakfasts and lunches in the room, ordered pizza/pasta delivery from Mezzaluna (great!) one night, cooked in one night, did a trip to Daytona for dinner out and mini golf one night and ordered sushi in from Kokoro the last night.
The bell staff were great and very helpful. I was a little disappointed in the cleaning service as a few days they didn't do such a great job in the kitchen or the kids' bathroom but it didn't ruin the trip at all. The college kids working at the pool were a bit lax but I wasn't too surprised. The kids working the chairs/umbrellas on the beach were much better. The property location and overall grounds are top notch. Some of the areas could use a small refresh like some painting / powerwashing.
The price is high but it is low in comparison to the Marriott vacation properties in Hilton Head that only offer two bedrooms, not three.
We will certainly come back here again, at least while the kids are still small and enjoy the attractions of the pool and beach.
