“Ellington Again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

Second time to Ellington and as the first, everything was excellent. Many things to do...indoor pool, exercise, and area attractions. We used as a central location and visited other areas in the vicinity. Went to Georgetown for a day, very nice. Restaurants in area have excellent food also.
Definitely will come back.

My wife doesn't golf. My best friend does. This was a great vacation site, where the guys can golf on many world class courses, the wives can shop till they drop, and we can all take in some very exciting night-time entertainment at the theaters and dinner shows in the area. A great overall experience for couples.

Room Tip: Bottom floors had easy access but could be noisy

A great place for golf and only a mile or so from the beach, as festiva adventure club members we visit here almost every year. We like the laid back feel of the Garden City/South Myrtle area and the quality of this condo style facility. Site has 11 individual buildings ranging 2 to 4 stories, indoor and outdoor pools, a smashing golf course, and a range of weekly activities for all visitants.

We thouroughly enjoyed our stay at Ellington. It was an exceptionally clean,well looked after,peaceful resort. Ideal for famillies.Pity their water park was closed whilst we were there but they have a fabulous indoor heated pool if its too cold for the outdoor ones. Some attractions close by if you need them.
Exellent restaurant nearby SWC on main road.

This was my first Festiva activity and first time at Wachesaw Plantation. I did not know what to expect but was pleased with all aspects of this trip. The staff were pleasant and attended to business in an excellent manner. I found the accommodations to be delightful. Golfing was great except for my scores. I would recommend Wachesaw Plantation highly.

This is our second vacation at Ellington with Festiva Adventure Club. It was even more delightful than the first. The grounds are lovely, the people friendly and there is such a large variety of things to do in the area. The indoor pool is a plus, as is the screened porch on the units in Phase 1. I'm a birder and gardener and it doesn't get any better than Brookgreen Gardens and Huntington Beach State park during migration season. The resort provides a pass into the state park for the week and a discount program with many shops in the area and activities in Georgetown. My husband was pleased to note that the internet access in our unit had been improved since our last visit. We look forward to our next visit here.

Room Tip: Phase 1 rooms have screened porches. One bedrooms are small, with little space to store groceries...

This is the most wonderful place to escape from all the noise and tension in life . When I wanted to go to the noise or shows Mytle Beach was just 20 min away and when we wanted to see nature you could visit Greenbrook plantation, the beach or just stay at the resort and enjoy the pool and hot spas. There is also golfing and walking trails if we wanted to really relax an stay away hidden from all adventure. The accomadations was three rooms which had every thing independent adults needs to have an enjoyable stay the decor was great not threating and the view of the golf course, pools and spas and parking made you feel like you designed it especially for us. The housekeeping staff and all the staff was always friendly and very helpful and could not do enough to make us wonder why we had not visited this resort earlier. Try this resort with an open min seeking rest and you will be shopping, golfing and sightseeing Charleston in no time even though you thought you wanted to rest from the world. Greatest Vacation resort next to Hawaii.our real diamond.

Room Tip: Two rooms or more Suites are large and sunny
