My husband and I stayed at this resort in August 2013. it was our second trio to Hilton Head, and we could not wait to go back with friends. We stayed at the Sea Pines Plantation the first time, and found the location of this resort to be FAR less desirable. We were disappointed by the location of the resort relative to Hilton Head. It was simply too far from the main area where restaurants, shopping, biking were located. The cost of the tolls over the bridge quickly became costly.
The main, most significant complaint we had was the inability to sleep at night in our two bedroom unit. The hallway lighting (two separate units) shown DIRECTLY like a beacon into the bedrooms. You could truly read by it at 2:00 pm ... no additional lighting needed. We ended up purchasing foil which we used each night to cover the light fixtures so that we could sleep. The architect who planned the unit layout should pay damages to this resort (and the guests who have suffered) as a result of that major design flaw.
The interior of the unit was fine, and looks just like the photos. The pool was nice, and it was often fairly deserted, especially during mid-week. I cannot stress enough that the sleeping accommodations are particularly poor, and you should be prepared to deal with them in some way. Foil works OK, but still does not cause all the light to be removed.
