Resort was beautiful and well-maintained. Three evenings we had drinks and dinner at Skull Creek. Loved the food, atmosphere and being able to walk there and back! Area was very peaceful, spent time in the lazy river and played bocce in the evenings. Could hear the band playing at the bar next door

My parents own two timeshare condos here and I've been here with them two times now. It is very clean and the activities offered are reasonably priced, many of which are free. All of the staff I have interacted with have been very friendly. The lazy river/pool is very nice and clean and I consider it an average size for... More

We really had a great time at this resort and the weather was so hot that we spent a lot of time in the pool / lazy river. There were three delicious restaurants within walking distance, and the grocery store is only about a mile away.

No boat ramp, no boat trailer parking, no gas... no nothing. So... if you want to bring a boat,.. don't go here. No we trade our week through Interval International for timeshares all... More

We traded in to the bluewater for a family vacation. The rooms were huge and very quiet. The pool was busy but not overly so, always able to get a chair. Lots of people barbecuing. Great dock to fish off or relax out there and watch the boats and kayakers. The only thing that was missing was a place to... More

1BR unit is very spacious. The bedroom is small, the living room and the kitchen are in the same area with a big kitchen island. The unit has washer and dryer in a closet next to the stove. Our balcony overlooks the splash pad, the pond and most part of the swimming pool. There are a couple of outdoor gas... More

The Spinnaker Bluewater Resort was wonderful for our family trip. My husband and I were traveling with our 3 1/2 year old and 2 year old and stayed in a 3-bedroom condo for the week. The place was huge! Each bedroom had it's own bathroom (I think 2 of the rooms had a King bed and 1 of the rooms... More

Located on the intra-coastal waterway on the island of Hilton Head, SC, Bluewater Marina is an actively selling time share resort. If you choose to attend a "meeting to hear about the resort" please know that you will be given pretty much a hard sell to buy into the place. On the positive side the 2 bedroom/2 bath units like...

We stayed here a week on an exchange from our timeshare and found that this is one of the better resorts we have stayed at in over 25 years of ownership. The check-in staff and procedure was quick and friendly. We chose not to attend the tour and sales pitch, but were offered up to $150 to do so. Our... More
