My wife and I stayed at this resort recently to celebrate our Anniversary and also to attend a friends birthday celebration in nearby Hilton Head. We had planned on taking a few day trips over to Hilton Head during our 4 night stay, but we ended up not wanting to leave the resort. There is so much to do on site. One day we lounged by the family pool (it was much more active than the adult pool) while we enjoyed cocktails and the buffet. We then took a nice kayak trip around the inlet. Another day we rode the resort provided bicycles around the extensive property.
We did spend one day exploring some of the nearby towns. The resort has a deal with Mercedes, so they offer loaner cars for you to use. We chose the SL550, which was much nicer than ride we brought to the resort.
The cottage we stayed in was perfect. We stayed in a lagoon view cottage which had a porch next to the inlet with a view of greenery, water, and birds. The cottage was spacious and clean with a refrigerator and stereo system. The refrigerator was handy for the wine and cheese we brought from home to snack on.
The food was great at both the River House and Buffalos. The River House is more formal than Buffalos (although dress is still resort casual). The toughest part of both restaurants was choosing between the great menu items.
The front desk staff and concierge were very helpful. One morning we drove into Bluffton to enjoy breakfast. The concierge recommended The Cottage, which was much better than Squat and Gobble which we insisted on trying the next morning.
The entire experience was fantastic. If you love the South, you will love this place.
