We are just back from a 4 night vacation at the Omni Hilton Head. It was absolutely fantastic - the service is top notch. All the staff members are always smiling and cheerful - we arrived around 9 PM EST - checking in was a breeze - they had already put up a crib in our room for my 2 year old and they also left him milk and cookies. The resort is beautiful to lounge around or walk around any time of the day - we actually walked around the resort enjoying the rocking chairs and fire pits till around midnight. The access to the beach is fantastic - its literally 10 steps away. We spent a lot of time on the beach - it is clean and delightful, especially during low tide, there are puddles/pools of water on the beach which was great for my 2 year old to play in. We spent hours playing in the sand with beach toys.
The hotel had arranged shuttle service to go watch the fireworks at Shelter Cover which was great and very comfortable. We also took the shuttle to the outfitters. They also give a small back up to the kids which is pretty neat - my 2 year old had great fun strapping it on his back and walking around the resort. They have 3 pools with 2 of them geared towards family activity.
The room is huge with a balcony - it has microwave, fridge, toaster, sink, dishes,etc - so its great as we made some meals in our room for our son - and we were also able to enjoy to-go dinners in our room balcony - listening to the waves. We stocked up on beer and mixed drinks in our room so we didn't pay for any pricey drinks
There are some nitpicking which the resort can improve upon - first and foremost - the internet (part of the $18 resort fee) is bad. I have stayed at many mediocre chain hotels who have blazing fast internet compared to this resort - they need to improve it. Also cell phone reception is very spotty in the room and is bad on the resort in general. The ocean view from our room 523 was average - there is a lot of foliage blocking the view - instead of paying $100+ more for ocean view - next time, i would probably stay courtyard view and spend that extra cash else.
All is all - fantastic vacation - great property, beautiful surroundings, gorgeous beach and superlative service. We will definitely consider it if we return to Hilton Head Island
