Not only was the island amazing, but so was the hotel. The ocean was very warm, about 80 degrees every day. The sand where the water goes up to high tide was hard, but where it didn't go, it was almost like powder. Usually, the pool was very crowded but the water was very warm too. We played golf twice at the Shipyard Plantation golf club, and the Clipper course was really nice. Some other things you can do besides golfing and swimming is biking (I highly recommend it), going for a run on the paths, ocean fishing, and looking for alligators. If you see any signs for alligators, they are actually telling the truth. In the ponds in the plantation there are real alligators. This resort is no doubt the #1 place to stay in Hilton Head.
