“Definitely Go, beautiful setting & Tennis”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2010

Just got back from a great week at Marriott Sunset Pointem May 1 to 8th. Beautiful setting overlooking the marsh. Heated Pool area and hot tub in lovely setting. An excellent tennis program, free to owners and only $10 a week for a daily stroke morning clinic. We met lots of people that way and a fraction of the cost compared to other nearby tennis clubs. The beach was a 15 minute bike ride from the resort on very safe bike trails. The ocean water was actually warm and wonderful!!! Restaurants galore all within 3 mile radius. They all have wonderful early bird specials and happy hours. Excellent quality, our favorite was Frankie Bones and Pino Gelado ice cream. This was a great time of the year as the weather was warm but breezy and not lots of kids at the pool as you would probably have when schools are out. The staff was very helpful and this will be our first timeshare stay in 5 years where we were not harassed to attend a presentation to purchase timeshare. At least at the resort, they were everywhere else in Hilton head. We were told by other guests that stayed at the beach front Marriotts that this resort was nicer, less crowded and tennis courts more accessible. Frankly, it was my last choice but glad we ended up there. Rooms were typical high quality Marriott accommodations with nice balcony overlooking marsh, lagoon or pool.. Also, check out the Hilton Head Comedy Club, it was great fun!

Stayed in unit 408 (I think this is a Harbour Pointe unit) with a great view of the inlet. Perhaps not the nicest Marriott Vacation Club property that I've stayed at or on the island but the location was what we wanted - not on the beach and a short walk to civilization (restaurants, shops). Overall a nice spot.

Unit: A bit dated and worn but clean and everything in good working order. Great view of the inlet, saw dolphins every day.

Property: Located in Palmetto Dunes Plantation but not behind the gated sections on the other side of 278. Car pass is provided for beach access and access to Dunes House. Bike rentals on property and there is a pool or two. The usual MVC market is very small so we drove or biked to Piggly Wiggly, .5 miles, for food and so on.

Palmetto Dunes Plantation: One of several plantations on HHI with two gated sections and public access to a convenience store, bike rental and one of three golf courses. If you have a tee time for one of the golf courses behind a gate access is no problem.

Activities: We rented bikes for the week and golfed. The bike trails on the island are wonderful and since the island is flat you don't need to be in tip-top shape to get around. Golfed at all three Palmetto Dunes courses. Trent Jones is nicest but also busy while Fazio and Hills are less crowded and less expensive.

My husband and I stayed the week of Christmas. The property is in a good location, the rooms are spacious and very clean, just great. However, the staff was the best part of our visit. The front desk and housekeeping staff were very friendly and went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. We will certainly stay here again.

The two bedroom until is so spacious. It was off season so the property was not crowded. There are tennis courts and bicycles to rent. You can walk to the beautiful marina. The arts center is down the road and we saw a wonderful production of My Fair Lady. The mall is a 2 minute drive and the grocery store is just past the mall. Plenty of restaurants nearby. There were so many Marriotts to choose from but we found this location was perfect. Walk to the marina and take a dolphin tour. The front desk people were the best!!

Spent Easter week in Hilton Head. Great golf and must eat fish at the Sea Shack - go early no reservation but worth the wait. Best fish onthe island.

Just spent five days in this hotel located in the peaceful Shelter Cove area. Most of the guests were either older couples, women traveling together, or Canadians taking advantage of the warmer weather. We were pleased with the accomodations- wonderfully comfortable Marriott beds and linens. Plenty of towels, including beach towels. This is a resort Marriott purchased, so don't expect the typically large bedrooms of standard Marriott resorts. One MBR with a king, and the second smaller room, had two twin beds. The staff was the friendliest of all the Marriott's I have visited.
A great side trip was lunch at the Palmetto Bluff Buffalo's restaurant. Absolutely the most serene and beautiful location outside of Bluffton.

My kids had a lot of fun playing in the pools, even though they are very small compared to big resorts. The villas are big enough for 6 people, all utensils available in the kitchen and towels provided were sufficient for the whole week. Daily activities were provided that kept kids busy for a few hours. Take advantage of the free shuttle to go to the beach and nearby places. The front desk staff was extremely nice, this is mostly a family resort, not ocean front but about 3 miles from the beach.
