Loved loved loved the Grande Ocean. Our two bed suite was amazing, clean, spacious, fully equipped, great view of the pool, fabulous bath tub ... I could live in it :)
We swam in the pool by Jim's Pool Bar. The pools are not heated but it wasn't unpleasant once you were in. The hotel is right by the ocean and you are literally steps from poolside to sand.
We ordered lunch from the poolside grill ... standard fare (hot dogs, burgers, quessidillas) but tasty. We hired bikes and cycled to the Harbour Town Lighthouse using the Sea Pines pass that the hotel provides. There are cycle paths the whole way and we even saw alligators by the side of the paths. We cycled back along the beach which was easy as the sand is very compacted. It was wonderful! There are many restaurants and a supermarket within a short drive.
I can't wait to return and next time I will stay longer!
