“Fabulous location and relaxing resort”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2014

I am a Spinnaker owner with another resort and this was my first visit to WATERSIDE. Was delighted with the location, so close to the beach, shops and restaurants. We were pleased with the accommodation, spacious and a nice view overlooking the lagoon. Lovely pool and all in all a very relaxing mini break with my family. We will stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with good view of lagoon.

This was a leisure vacation for us...and we hoped we would find some time for reading, walking, and relaxing at the pool areas. We did just that.
The resort is nicely situated near Coligny Circle where there are restaurants, beach apparel stores, bike rentals, etc. The check-in was crowded but moved quickly. Parking it under the units and we ended up in a building fairly close to the larger pools.
The unit was furnished nicely, but a bit dated compared to what we are used to as timeshare exchanges. The bed was comfortable...but the sofa in the living area gave both my husband and I backaches by the end of the week. Add to that the ~25 inch TV. [Yes, we are spoiled by our BIG screen at home].
We found the kitchen had good appliances and utensils...and we had plenty of paper towels, trash bags, coffee filters, etc.
The hot tub jacuzzi left something to be desired. No jet pressure, and not what you'd call "hot." Being situated in a wooded area makes for lots of stuff falling off the trees which can be unsightly.
The staff was pleasant and courteous. Our timeshare tour was short and we enjoyed the perks that were offered.

On my awesome visit to Hilton Head, this part had to be one of my favorite places. This was my second favorite thing next to all of Hilton Head's cool beaches. I liked the pool and everything here. This is a nice place to visit.

We have stayed here many times. It is busy in the summer and less crowded in the other months. There are 3 pools, hot tub, tennis, etc. The beach is down the road about 4 blocks. Restaurants and shopping very close. Some areas do need upgrading, but overall in good shape for as many people that use it. There are shuttles to the beach usually, or if you want to drive to a public beach access there are several. We usually grill out one night and the grills are fine. The heated pool is nice if the weather is chilly, but no indoor pool. No workout area on site either, but I'm not really here to exercise!

We have stayed here multiple times and very nice and awesome location near Coligny Circle. But our last stay was in an older building that had not been updated. Old worn furniture and rock hard bed made for a long week. Request an updated building and you will enjoy Waterside!

My husband and I exchanged some RCI points for a week in a one-bedroom unit at the Waterside. This is our first visit to a Spinnaker Resort, although we have visited Hilton Head Island, SC many times over the past 20 years. This is our favourite spot to escape cold northern winters.

We were extremely happy with our suite. The only smaller space was the kitchen, but it was still adequate for a short term stay. The bathroom was very large with both a spa tub and large shower stall. Large livingroom/dining room and very spacious bedroom with king size bed.

Our building had a heated pool which was large with plenty of loungers and tables with umbrellas. The WiFi was a bit patchy, but we didn't come here to work, so it was adequate for our needs.

The location is excellent - within walking distance of the public beach (beautiful North Forest Beach at Coligny Circle); restaurants. Great spot if you like to ride a bike too.

We would highly recommend this resort. "Nothing could be finer than to be in Carolina....." We LOVE HHI. (Canadian snowbird)

First of all, the place was beautiful and our room was bigger than the first floor of our house. That was good. Now the bad: the walls were so thin! We could hear people in the next room and everything outside. Didn't help that our room was just above a major sidewalk. The wifi was practically non-existent, it just kept blinking out, I couldn't even check my email, so their claim of "free wifi" is bull. And everything's just old and kind of run down looking. The TV's were the big, chunky old ones instead of flat screens.

For a "nice" place, there is no excuse for the skimpy walls, poor placement over a busy sidewalk and 1990s electronic services.
