4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

Like most Marriott properties it is well run and well located. This one is beginning to show its age and needs to be brought up to date. The kitchen was not very well equipped. Also the front bedroom windows could not be opened since they had a locking device that required an Allen key to undo which we had to go out and buy.

Room Tip: Make sure you ask for a room on the water side, preferably on a higher floor. Some of the rooms are...

We rented a 2 bedroom condo (this is our timeshare). It was fantastic. Full kitchen, granite countertops throughout, beautiful courtyard right outside our door....I was ready to move right in! Around the corner is shopping and restaurants. Great time!

Stayed one week, hated to leave. Staff very friendly and helpful. Especially Carolyn and Sebastian. The views out of our fourth floor unit were spectacular, dolphins, and watching the salt marsh change with the tides. Rooms were exceptionally clean, some furniture (sofa) a little worn, but overall a great experience.

Room Tip: The higher up floors have the best views.

A very nice time share. Great views, easy access to boating actives and long walks on a beautiful marina. Rooms clean and well maintained. It is an older facility that has considerable charm and comfort.

This is a spacious time share in a desirable location. Unfortunately, the interior reminds us of an era more like 20 years ago. Furniture is dated and decor themes are no longer chic. The complex backs on to marshlands, and a waterway that make for beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Staff is competent. An upgrade would launch this site into "must stay" territory.

We stayed the first week of September, through a timeshare exchange with Interval International, and absolutely loved the resort! We were on the 4th floor of the building that was closest to Broad Creek and had an excellent view of the creek and the marsh, saw dolphins almost every day from our balcony, loved watching the boats, kayaks and stand-up paddle boards go by. Plenty of room (it was just my husband and I), the furnishings are not the most modern but it was very comfortable (especially the bed). We had a problem with water leaking from the refrigerator the first day, but maintenance responded to our call within 30 minutes and it was fixed. Because it was off-season, there was never a problem getting a lounge chair at either of the pools. There were numerous activities going on at the resort every day, and the staff was always friendly and helpful. We rented 2 bikes from the resort, the price was the same as from any of the bike rental companies on the island and the bikes were in great condition - really enjoyed biking over to Shelter Cove for ices (great little store called Frosty's, had some of the best ices we've ever had!), or to have dinner at some of the restaurants there.
All in all, we had a great trip and loved the resort - and we are planning to stay again next year!

Room Tip: Osprey building, 3rd or 4th floor has a great marsh view. Sunset building has a nice view of one of...

We exchanged through Interval from our typical Hyatt property (Coconut Plantation) in Florida, which served as a point of comparison. Judging by some of the reviews here, we actually had relatively low expectations. Now having experienced the property, those reviews seem to be less about the quality of the resort and more about expectations that the resort couldn't possible meet. There are certainly still some things for Sunset Pointe to improve upon, but overall, I would certainly return here.

A couple quick things about what this resort is not so future travelers are clear. It is not beachfront. If you've looking for a Hilton Head Marriott that is beachfront, this isn't it. It does not have any onsite dining options. This complaint puzzles me anyway, as these are timeshare units equipped with full kitchens - what is the need for onsite dining? It is not brand new. The buildings are certainly older, but the rooms themselves are quite up to date.

Let me go through the strengths of the resort, then areas of improvement. As noted by others, the staff is definitely a strong suit. Every staff member we interacted with was friendly and willing to help, from taking our family pictures to remembering that we had a sleeping child the one night we needed a repair done in the room. Second, the grounds of the resort are immaculate and well-kept. The pools, gazebo, and fire pit areas are gorgeous and all overlook Broad Creek. I can certainly understand that in peak season the pools might be a bit crowded, but for our Labor Day week, they were near empty. The room itself was clean and had all the amenities we needed, updated with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, standard Marriott bedding, and flat screen TVs. The non-slip tile in the entry-way, kitchen, and bathrooms is a huge plus for a family with wet children coming in from the pool or beach. Lastly, there were a large number of activities to choose from across the course of the week - I really don't see how any objective reviewer over the summer could say that this resort lacks in this area.

Three areas of improvement: the living room furniture absolutely needs updating. The couch and two chairs in our unit were worn and tired and need to be replaced. They were certainly clean and perfectly usable, but don't meet the standards of the rest of the unit. A small nit - all the doorknobs could use replacing - just look a bit old. Lastly, the Internet in our room went on and off all week, which was incredibly annoying. The staff did as much as they could to ID the problem and had the internet company come fix it, but it still went off and on even after they came. I don't know if it was just our unit, or that we were bouncing between routers, but it was really the only part of our stay which was aggravating.

Relative to our Hyatt stays, this particular property falls just below, but still worthy of the maintenance fees we pay. It had everything we needed for an enjoyable vacation, and the staff made us feel quite welcome. While not oceanfront, the views over the creek are gorgeous, and it does make for a more intimate/quieter feel to the resort. We are actually going back to Hilton Head for another stay at Marriott's Barony Beach Resort in October - it will be interesting to have that point of comparison relative to this property. I would recommend this property to others considering a Hilton Head vacation.
