“Nice Vacation”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2011

After going back and forth, we finally decided to stay at the Hilton Head Resort. Our condo was located in the building with the indoor pool. The actual resort grounds are nice. The outside pool appeared bigger in the pictures, but wasn't that big. The indoor pool and spa was very nice. It wasn't very crowded so we really was able to enjoy ourselves. The walk to the beach wasn't bad, and we had no problem catching the little "shuttle" to take us back and forth. The drinks at Coco's were good, and the bartender wasn't lacking on giving you plenty of alcohol..lol! The beach was very private and nice. There are chairs/umbrellas available for rent if you like, but most people brought their own. I would recommend Hilton Head Resort, especially if you can find a nice updated condo.

This hotel has all the amenities you might need. It's a great place to stay with the kids, because on the rainy days you can use an indoor pool. There are lots of tennis courts, and the grocery store is pretty much across the street. There is a golf cart shuttle that takes you to the beach if you don't want to use the boardwalk they have. The only thing that was scary is that they have small alligators on the property running freely. So watch your children closely. Also, there are only coupl of elevators , so it takes a long time to get to your room. Otherwise, rooms are clean, pools are great, and location is very central.

My wife "won" a weeks vacation at Hilton Head Resort in a golf outing silent auction fund raiser. Neither of us had been to Hilton Head prior to this.

The resort is actually a condo complex consisting of four inter-connected buildings. I would not use the work "awful", but the place is showing 25+ years of wear and tear. The inside of our unit was freshly painted and tiled, though you can see that the drywall patching was done quickly and poorly. About half of the exterior hallways had old nasty carpet, the others had the carpet removed. To be fair, it appears that they are trying to clean the place up, though it looks like it is being done on the cheap.

There is a 24 hour security gate to enter the complex. Security guards were always friendly. The courtyard of the first building had the main swimming pool along with a small store. The courtyard of the 2nd building appeared to have a sundeck. The 3rd building had an enclosed courtyard with an indoor pool. Finally, the 4th building courtyard had tennis courts in it. Access to the beach was a 10-15 minute walk along a boardwalk over a salt marsh.

Hilton Head Island is full of "plantations" which are essentially gated communities full of million dollar houses and marina's with million dollar yacht's. Hilton Head Resort is located between a couple of these plantations. Hilton Head Resort seems to me to be the poor man's (average man's) means to say they own a place on Hilton Head. It is quite a different experience between here and the "plantations".

Our teenagers enjoyed the pools and beach. They had a good time here. My wife and I spent time exploring the rest of the island and saw the disparity between here and other places. I would rate our experience as Hilton Head Resort as "average". If you are just looking for a relatively inexpensive base on Hilton Head Island and/or are they type of person who enjoys lying on the beach for hours per day, this place will satisfy your needs.

The staff was very friendly and the 2 pools, one for adults and one for families, makes for a peaceful place to stay. The food was good and the resort was very very clean. Can't wait to return!

I just spent a week with my wife and two children. I have to disagree with the previous review. I would recommend this to anyone with a family. There are three separate buildings within the gated reort. We stayed in building 3 which has a great pool build in the center of the complex with a deli and a great gift shop. There is a long boardwalk to the beach however, it is only a few steps behind building 3. Once you get to the boardwalk, the time across is no more than 5-8 minuets. The beach is private and reserved only for those staying at the resort. That was the best feature in my opinion. We had plenty of room and never felt crowded. There is 24 hour security and no one comes in without a pass. This is a 25 year old resort so if you want the top of the line, you may want to look elsewhere. But you will certainly pay more.

This complex is mostly for those who live on HHI rather than want to vacation there. They have a cool little cafe, nice pool (including kids pool), tennis courts, and 24 hour security. However, when we go to the beach, we go for the beach. While nothing exists between the resort and the beach, it takes at least 15-20 minutes to make it across the mud flats. They do offer a tram service periodically throughout the day, but don't expect to make it on, especially when everyone else is trying to get a seat on the golf cart and pull-behind. The condos were rather small but were nicely decorated. We were originally attracted to the place because of the cheap price for the week, and as the addage goes "you get what you pay for." If you are looking for a place to spend the winter months, and you don't like quick walks on the beach, this might be a good option for you. If you are a family with small children who like to play by the shore as much as possible, you will need to find somewhere else to stay.

Room Tip: pool rooms smell of chlorine, stay close to beach
