“Holiday Nirvana”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

Put your holiday experience in the capable and charming hands of Rudzani, Grey, Candace and Brooklet. They welcome you warmly, and dispense helpful and thoughtful counsel to enjoying the resort and Hilton Head Island. We had a last minute travel change, and they helped us not only navigate it, but gave us a stupendous experience. The kids pool is big fun for the little ones, the morning yoga inspired me for the day, the Porch restaurant has a lobster roll so moist and succulent you may swoon. Make sure you save room for the nightly s'more roast! The beach is pristine and steps away from your room. Our evening walk was punctuated with the soft glows from everyone's phone flashlights as they bobbled through the night. We found a starfish, which we exclaimed over, introduced ourselves to, then left to continue our beach adventure. No way that any creature should leave this place.

Room Tip: Our room was over the parking lot, and it was fine -- we did not stay in our room other than to show...

We visit this fun beautiful resort all the time and enjoyed our weekend stay Mother's Day weekend. Great location and great people. Juanna is a real sweetheart and very helpful around the pool. She is so friendly and greats you with a big smile every time she sees you.
Amy is the sweetest and friendliest waitress at the Tiki Hut bar. She always greets us with a big smile and we love the frozen gators. She's the BEST. We will be back many more times.❤️❤️

The best thing about this hotel is the location... right on the beach and next to all the shopping and dining in Coligny Plaza.

I was able to get a great deal through a travel website (about $100 / night , breakfast and bikes included) ... so it was worth what I paid, but certainly not worth the normal rates.

CONS: They are advertising a complete renovation, but it's more like re-decoration. The bedding, draperies, paint are new and fresh, but the carpet, furniture, tub/shower were not. Allergies and sinuses were killing me after the first night. The carpet needs replacing terribly! I would not walk on it without my shoes.
Service at the restaurant was poor. The pool was much smaller that it appeared online and no chairs available by the pool after 10 am.
If you don't like loud music the entire time you lay out and want to hear the sounds of the ocean, you will need to go further down the beach.

PROS: Location.... We loved being able to walk or bike everywhere. Food was pretty good at the Porch and the other poolside dining option.

Bottom line, if you can get a deeply discounted rate and don't mind the cons I mentioned above , go for it. But don't expect a resort atmosphere. And I would never pay the rates that are advertised!

Room Tip: The few oceanfront rooms are right by the Tikki Bar with loud music!

Patricia was a great help to myself and my company, as was the rest of the staff. Can't wait to come back again. This is the very best beach access in Hilton Head and contains the Tiki Hut which is one of the best places to relax with live music by the beach. Great experience. Thanks.

This hotel, or what felt like a resort, was beyond expectations. Front desk at check in was very welcoming. The room was great, with a comfortable king bed, free in room WiFi, and clean(carpets need changing). Walk out the building and your at the pool, adjacent to the beach. The pool area is resort like. Lounge chairs with umbrellas and a staff member frequently walking by to ask if everything was ok, and offering drinks and food.
The location is amazing. Walking/Jogging/biking path directly across from hotel. Several areas with many restaurants within walking distance.
Couldn't have picked a better place to spend the Memorial Day weekend. Will be back.

If you have low expectations on room conditions, this place could be for you.

Rooms are average, at best. Hotel is just kind of run down. Bubbling paint in bathrooms, loud and irregular ac units, not too mention a different type of clock(which were all set to the wrong times, not a big deal, but shows the attention to detail) in each room(we stated in two).

Our first room was an "ocean view" room. We were on the second floor and couldn't really see the ocean. Looks like third floor and above have ocean views, but not the first two.

Outside of the rooms, it's a good location. Friendly staff for the most part. Decent bar and restaurant attached. Only complaint was on our last day when we wanted to bring some leftover pizza out for lunch(purchased elsewhere the night before). We were told we couldn't do that. Pretty ridiculous considering we spent a couple hundred dollars at their restaurant and bar during the week. IMHO at least.

Here are some tips if you want to bring your own food or drink in. First, buy a drink out two and keep your plastic cup(s). You can't bring alcohol of your own to the pool. Just go back to your room and fill it up and you're golden. As far as food, buy some good from the hut in the middle if the pool. The good comes in brown boxes. Just keep the box and refill as you like. Just a couple ideas if you're into saving a few bucks.

Overall, nice pool area/beach access. Hotel, not worth the money IMHO.

It sounds like you love to stay here, but like to be thrifty and there's nothing wrong with that, but how about getting such a good deal on your room that you can afford the convenience of having drinks served to you and avoiding all that hassle? We will take all your comments into careful consideration as we strive to always improve, thank you. We hope to see you again in the future.

This resort was very nice, clean and had a great location. It was right on the beach and it also had a nice pool. It was in close proximity to shopping, dinner and other little shops. I didn't like the fact that we were charged $10 per night for parking though.
