“Great location - beware the "owner update/sales pitch"”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2014

Excellent location - short walk to beach, shopping & restaurants. Great pool area for kids. Units are nice and roomy but need updating. Reject any offer for their sales pitch - $40 gift cert isn't worth the aggravation of salespeople who don't take NO as an answer.

I had a 1 BR unit - No shelf for shampoo in shower? Good grief, go to DollarTree and buy a rack to go over the shower head! Take the old clunky TV in BR & the armoire it's in and mount a flatscreen on the wall with a decent dresser below.

What a wonderful resort to relax and enjoy life. Everything nearby-restaurants, ocean, shopping and golf course 5 minutes away. Very friendly and efficient staff. Definitely 5 star! A vacation to look forward to.

While the beach was wonderful and I adore the area, the room I checked into was completely vile. There was hair EVERYWHERE. It was all over the shower, the floors, the beds, even. Very nasty, I could not enjoy a bit of that room.

Recently spent a week with close friends at this resort and found it to be the typical cookie cutter time share resort. However, Hilton Head Island was quite the place, good food, nice scenery and pleasant people. What did the resort need? It needed to be updated as far as colors, artwork and linens go. The furniture looked like a combination from other resorts and was quite dated. We would go back and would recommend the place but do not do so with a glowing report. It was clean and relaxing. The view was pretty good, lagoon on one side, pool on the other. Watching the alligator was fun.

Room Tip: We requested a room on the top floor so we could enjoy a better view. I think I would request a cor...

I am a Spinnaker owner with another resort and this was my first visit to WATERSIDE. Was delighted with the location, so close to the beach, shops and restaurants. We were pleased with the accommodation, spacious and a nice view overlooking the lagoon. Lovely pool and all in all a very relaxing mini break with my family. We will stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with good view of lagoon.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2014

This was a leisure vacation for us...and we hoped we would find some time for reading, walking, and relaxing at the pool areas. We did just that.
The resort is nicely situated near Coligny Circle where there are restaurants, beach apparel stores, bike rentals, etc. The check-in was crowded but moved quickly. Parking it under the units and we ended up in a building fairly close to the larger pools.
The unit was furnished nicely, but a bit dated compared to what we are used to as timeshare exchanges. The bed was comfortable...but the sofa in the living area gave both my husband and I backaches by the end of the week. Add to that the ~25 inch TV. [Yes, we are spoiled by our BIG screen at home].
We found the kitchen had good appliances and utensils...and we had plenty of paper towels, trash bags, coffee filters, etc.
The hot tub jacuzzi left something to be desired. No jet pressure, and not what you'd call "hot." Being situated in a wooded area makes for lots of stuff falling off the trees which can be unsightly.
The staff was pleasant and courteous. Our timeshare tour was short and we enjoyed the perks that were offered.

On my awesome visit to Hilton Head, this part had to be one of my favorite places. This was my second favorite thing next to all of Hilton Head's cool beaches. I liked the pool and everything here. This is a nice place to visit.
