“Nice quiet location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2014

I was in Hilton Head for 5 days and stayed at Marriott's Monarch at Sea Pines. Very nice location - quiet, access to a number of things within an easy drive and to some larger wildlife areas that are an hour or so away. I've been an MVCI owner for about 20 years, and have stayed at quite a few MVCI properties. This has to be one of the older ones. While the villa itself was very nice and seemed to have been updated, the buildings don't resemble the newer MVCI properties. Regardless of that, if you're going to be in the Hilton Head area and want a nice place that doesn't require the most points, Monarch at Sea Pines is a safe bet. I know I'll be there when I go back to Hilton Head in the future.

Room Tip: I always ask for a high floor, because I know they'll be quieter.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

We stayed here during our kids Spring Break week April 5-12th. This was our first time in Sea Pines and it was awesome! If you want a spot that's nice, somewhat quiet and tucked away from the action this is the place to be. From our villa We had a beautiful view of both the ocean and pool. The entire place is immaculately clean, beds are comfortable and kitchen is well stocked for your use.

Since there was no place to eat on the grounds I'm going to have to rate it s 4 instead of 5. Otherwise it's a 5 all the way! Great job Marriott! Keep up the good work!

Almost hesitate to post this, because I don't want it to become too popular! Rooms recently renovated, very clean, plenty of room for a family of four (2 teenagers). Had an ocean front room in the Azalea bldg. Peaceful and relaxing for us, kids could have plenty of freedom without us worrying about them. Love all the Sea Pines bike trails.

Don't know what was the best about this resort (property or staff). We had a beautiful view of the beach and if you love to walk beaches, this is the place. The property is updated and lovely. I believe it was just all updated last year. You can rent bikes for the week for 30.00 (or 10.00 per day) and ride through lovely Sea Pines.

The staff (especially Brent) are wonderful. Everyone has a smile and makes you feel at home. They will do anything to make your stay wonderful!

Room Tip: We had the 2nd floor, ocean view in the Azalea building - best view ever!

The grounds and the property are very well maintained and the beach is wide and beautiful. We enjoyed our week of long walks and bike rides despite the colder than normal weather.

We had not stayed in Sea Pines before and we found that it had pluses and minuses. The minuses definitely include the traffic and limited parking at this end of the island while the pluses include the concentration of shopping and the plethora of restaurants, even though we had to wait to be seated at 6:30pm on a Tuesday in Jan.

The staff was most helpful and attentive and gave us very good service. We liked Monarch and will probably return next winter for a sibling reunion.

Room Tip: Ask for an ocean view room. Most of the rooms do face the beach.

Absolutely loved the hotel, the room size / layout (we stayed in a 2 bed suite K, 2 T, sofa bed), all the hotel activities and amenities (large chess board, ping pong, shuffle board, bean bag toss, hammocks, lounge chairs, etc.)

Sea pines is beautiful!! Everywhere you look, and the beach is great!

Only issue we had was that check in is at 4pm and check out is 9am, a little stingy, We thought. We arrived at 1:30pm and thought we'd be able to check in, (being that they kick people out promptly at 9am - which we found out later on our trip). However, they took our name and number and told us that they'd call us when the room was ready. It wasn't until 3:50 that we for our room keys. Bummer.

We loved everything about the hotel though, and would likely go back.

We have stayed at a number of the Marriott facilities on Hilton Head. All are excellent, but we prefer the Monarch, where we are owners, for its placement behind the dunes in Sea Pines. The beach at this point of the island is very wide and hardened at low tide with few people on the beach - excellent for biking with miles to ride without obstruction of water intrusion. As active Seniors we enjoy the miles of bike paths in Sea Pines and the trails within the Forest Preserve. Returning to our unit after activity is very rewarding - comfortable and convenient.
