“Romantic Escape”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2006

If you are looking for a quiet, stress-free, romantic vacation... look no further! I took my boyfriend here for his 26th birthday last October and the whole experience is one we will never forget!! I called ahead to ask them to decorate the room for his birthday, and when we walked in the door to our room it was filled with birthday balloons and flowers. As soon as we sat down, someone knocked on the door and it was the butler with a cake! The views from the room were amazing (I would reccommend staying on the 3rd floor for the views). The next morning, we were able to actually see the view, since the area gets so pitch black at night we couldn't see anything! The breakfast was delicious - omellettes made to order, and we were lucky because they included free breakfast with our room rate! We have stayed in Hilton Head many times before at different locations, but this is definitely the place to go for a special romantic get-a-way. There are no restaurants too close by (except a golf course clubhouse), but that is the perfect beauty of it! You are alone, with your parter, and no distractions! A great place to re-connect with one another and nature. And, there are English butlers on every floor! WOW! What a great memory! Make your reservations now, and get ready to relax totally and completely. Spend your days bike-riding (we did!), take a short ride to the beach and have a picnic, or just rock in one of the rocking chairs on the back patio while listening to the birds chirp.

I especially loved this visit, as it was at the end of October and the Island was very empty of tourists. The room price was great! The ocean breezes were so clean and cool in the evening, and in the day it got sunny and warm enough for a trip to the beach! I will definitely be going back!

This is a cute little inn located between the golf courses and the tennis center in Sea Pines. Great location. However, I have mixed opinions about the place.

On the plus side, if you're a tennis player (or golfer), you can't beat the location. I was able to walk from my hotel room to the tennis courts in about two minutes. The golf course is right behind the inn, although I am not a golfer and did not use the golf facilities. We purchased a tennis package, which included daily breakfast, tennis clinic, and two hours of free court time each day.

The staff at the inn is very friendly and attentive, sometimes overly so, in my opinion. The Inn only has 60 rooms so the staffers are able to give great attention to guests' individual needs.

On the down side, if you like to eat out, there are very few dining choices within Sea Pines. We stayed there for a week and ate 90% of our meals at restaurants outside Sea Pines. There is no restaurant within the Inn, although they do offer a breakfast buffet each morning. There is a restaurant next door that (I believe) is only open for dinner. We did not eat there, however, the menu did not look very interesting. From the Inn, it's a five minute walk to the Harbour Town marina area, where there are three more restaurants. Unfortunately, two of them were closed for the winter season. The one that was open (The Crazy Crab) serves mediocre food at inflated prices. We were quite disappointed.

Also, the in-room "high-speed" Internet access did not work as advertised. It was actually slower than dialup (which is what I ended up using to connect to the Internet). The service is free, so I guess you get what you pay for. The public computer terminal in the lobby is just as slow.

Overall, the resort gets "one thumb up" from me. Next time in Hilton Head, I'll try Palmetto Dunes, which is a higher-rated tennis resort.

Just Awesome...We got a room on bottom floor with view of 1st tee....Rooms are great...and the beds are super comfy....We could watch golfers teeing off in am. Took a bike ride around the golf course at Dusk...It was summer so the place was pretty dead...which we liked..played Harbortown and the Ocean Course...A little hot...but fun... Super friendly people working there..I would stay there again..or rent a house for a week...:)
