Stayed here recently with two other couples for a long weekend, drove up from Florida. Two months prior 4 of us had stayed at Marriott's Surfwatch, well.. For the adult crowd, Surfwatch is much nicer. Barony is geared more toward families. We were in the garden view building and they have a fantastic pool with fountains and water toys for the kids, including a great waterside! There is a beautiful outdoor cooking area with new gas grills and covered eating area, that can service about 6 groups at once. It even has two flat screen tvs and an outdoor fireplace. We stayed in on Saturday night and cooked hamburgers on the grill for a nice evening "in". The other set of buildings is about a 1/4 mile walk away, but has two more beautiful outdoor pools and one indoor pool, beach access and a spa! I gather that this property also serves as a hotel, whereas the Surfwatch is strictly ownership, and this is reflected in the atmosphere. I would definitely recommend this for families, but couples may want to try one of the other Hilton Head properties.
