If ambiance is important to you, this is not the place for you. I timeshare exchanged to Port O' Call Resort in August. This was the first time in about 15 exchanges to different locations that I was disappointed with a "Gold Crown" resort. I stayed in Unit "19", a 3 bedroom 3 bath cottage, about 75 yards from the pool. The cottage has keypad access. I found the unit itself badly in need of an update. My husband called it "a dump". However, I wouldn't go that far. It almost felt as though they ran out of furnishings, as they are old,sparse or non-existent. The master bedroom contains a king size bed and a small dresser. There is a wall lamp on either side of the bed at about eye level with exposed wires going down the wall to the electrical outlets; no end tables. There are 3 bathrooms with counter tops so small that there is little room for toilet articles. Although there is storage in a small cabinet under the sink. There is a TV in each bedroom and 1 flat screen in the living room. The units, as well as the pool are wifi accessible. The unit has a screened porch. The rooms appear to have been arranged without much thought to design. I did appreciate the convenience of the full sized washer and dryer, as well as the dishwasher in the full sized kitchen.
We twice called the maintenance department for 2 non working items. They were prompt, professional and exceeded my expectations both times.
There is also private access to the beach road via a keypad access code.This was another bonus as the beach was a mere 5-10 minute walk via this route. Bicycle rental is available for a nominal fee. Although. there is no fitness center there is access to a center at one of their sister properties. There are also tennis courts on-site. The bicycle paths provide ample space for power walking.
Hilton Head Island is a lovely place and a great vacation spot. The activities are too numerous to mention. I do concede that I was probably in one of the older units. Therefore, my experience may not be the same as others. Nevertheless, although, I cannot recommend this property, I would not hesitate to return to the island in the future but, not to Port O' Call.
