“Good resort”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013 via mobile

It's not easy to get to the resort, but after fighting traffic, it is nice and clean. Indoor and outdoor pools, plenty of layout chairs, right on the beach. Most rooms face the ocean with a balcony and 2 chairs. Very kid friendly, but there are 16 and up areas for hammock use.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

As a business traveler, who travels every week, I am picky about where I stay. Linda (front desk)has mastered customer service. She chose a perfect room for us. I thought the rooms were comfortable, clean and had a wonderful view. The balcony is wonderful to enjoy the view with a nice glass of wine. The rooms were quiet in the evenings, although the hotel was booked. There is a great pool ,music in the afternoon and hammocks with a view of the ocean. The hotel is ocean front so it is an easy walk. The staff are amazing, always smiling and there to help. I have absolutely no complaints about this hotel. We will return.

But everything else is great!

The staff is super-motivated - all exceptionally friendly and helpful. Marriott must have great training/incentives

Beach front room was wonderful. Nicely furnished, great bathroom, lots of closet space, great balcony (6th floor).

Conroy's restaurant is terrific - some of the best grouper you are likely to get anywhere on the island. And room service dining is excellent.

All facilities are extra nice - we splurged and did the pool cabanas AND the beach chairs/umbrella so we could move from beach to pool and back in fine style.

For a beach front vacation experience with every amenity imaginable at your beck and call this would be hard to beat.

Odd that such a nice place has no movie channels or PPV? And yes, the tap water on HHI literally stinks. Always has since I lived there in 1982. We stopped by Walmart and stocked up with a case of bottled water.

When you dine out anywhere on the island, ask if the water is tap - if so, pass.

Room Tip: Beach front 4th floor or higher with balcony in main building is awesome. Pelicans fly by your windo...

The Palmetto Dunes location of this hotel is great - right on the beach, a couple of restaurants nearby, and 3 golf courses on property. The pool area was nice and the lobby is attractive. The staff go above and beyond to make you feel welcome and appreciated. That is where it ends. The room was nice room, it didn't smell or have stains on bedding or floor, but the ocean view was a stretch. The bed was quite comfortable. After arriving in our room we discovered our refrigerator was frozen up, they changed it out. The first night we were there the power went out and the hotel was evacuated. We understand that can happen but please don't leave us sitting outside for 1 1/2 hours without any communication. We could see the firetrucks out front so we knew it must be pretty serious. We were finally told we could go back to our rooms and what doors to enter. No one was available to direct us to the correct door so we wondered around until we found an open door. A staff member on the elevator told us the elevator was working. We entered and headed up to our floor, or so we thought. The elevator only went down to the bottom floor. We exited and found the stairway. The power came on in our room sometime during the night. The next morning in order to use our toilet we had to use a glass and fill up the tank so we could flush. While in the shower the fire alarms went off again. No communication saying 'this is a test' - I didn't know if I was going to have to wrap the towel around me and run out. If the hotel would address its many issues and make updates I would come back, but not until.

MarshaDavid,
Thank you so much for posting this review of our property. Guest feedback is the best source we have to use to show us what we need to improve upon. I want to apologize for the lack of communication you received during this incident. The incident itself was trying enough on many of our guests so I do apologize that we were not able to ease your fears and make you more comfortable through keeping you informed. Your feedback has been shared with the management team here and we will work more on our communication. I do want to thank you for the kind words you had about the rest of your stay and would also like to let you know we will be undergoing a full renovation of the property beginning within the next few months. We hope you will come back to stay with us again in the future so that we can give you a much better experience to remember us by!

We booked a stay for just one night, thankfully, at the Hilton Head Marriott Resort and Spa. The lobby, pool, and common areas are very nice. The food was good, resort priced, but still acceptable. The staff was very helpful and courteous; from the parking attendants to the servers. That is where the good stopped. We booked an ocean-front, king room. Checkin was 4 pm, but our room was not ready until after five (The front desk comped the valet parking for the delay). After our room was ready, a quick check of the bed revealed "body" hair, cheez-it crumbs in the sheets and other stains on the white duvet.The room was not cleaned at all, just a quick straighten-up. There was hair in the shower, splatters on the mirrors. The house keeping manager was very apologetic and offered a $50.00 credit towards drinks while they "re-cleaned" the room, which we did appreciate. Two hours later the housekeeps changed the sheets. The bed is very, very soft, which was not comfortable for us. The room bathrobes were stained...no comment necessary. The room did have a musty smell, which means that the air filter has not been changed in several months. In the morning light, we noticed the green mold on the walls. I was able to wipe the mold off with a damp cloth. This is a lack of maintenance and nothing more. When we mentioned thins to the "assistant Manager" at the front desk, she told us that it is common on the island (I have stayed at several island hotels and have never had this "common" problem at a resort). We were blown off and pretty much dismissed for mentioning this. The only thing that was missing was "bless his heart". We would NEVER recommend that anyone stay here, but if you do, don't forget the $16.00 Resort fee, plus the 22% room tax, not including the Valet, tips, $4.00 coffee....

WobzCT,
Thank you so much for posting this review of our property. Guest feedback is the best source we have to use to show us what we need to improve upon. I want to apologize for the state the room was in when you checked in. This is not a Marriott standard and I understand how frustrating that was for you. I also want to apologize for your not receiving the Marriott caring service we strive to provide. I have shown the respective departments the details of your stay. So that they may focus on these issue to keep them from occurring again. We do want to thank you for your kind words about the rest of your stay. Please email us so that we may discuss your stay in more detail at hiltonheadays@columbiasussex.com. We do hope you change your mind and come back to visit so that we may change your opinion of our property and you can have a great time!

Old rooms,overpriced rooms,telephones that do not work,water damaged roof, breakfast that nearly poisoned me...enough said. In need of a total make over. Moved to Sonesta Resort- now THATS a hotel worthy of 4 stars. This is worthy of 2 stars

My first trip to Hilton Head and was looking forward to a beautiful room with a balcony overlooking the ocean. At least that was what I thought I booked; my room looked out at Palmetto Dunes with beautiful trees. I could glimpse the ocean if I leaned over the far end of the balcony. I'm from Pensacola beach and all of our rooms that are advertised ocean view are just that; not views of trees. Would have booked somewhere else if I had known. Staff said it was just too bad. Never again...

Virginia M,
Thank you so much for posting this review of our property. Guest feedback is the best source we have to use to show us what we need to improve upon. I want to apologize for the misinformation you were provided as well as the service provided to you during your stay. Our ocean view rooms have some obstructions in the view by means of a palm tree or a few bushes and are a view from the balcony, where as our Oceanfront rooms will have an unobstructed view of the ocean from your room as well as your balcony! We hope that you will come back to visit soon and enjoy one of our beautiful ocean front rooms and change your opinion of our property around!
