We just spent a week in January at the Marriott SurfWatch Resort in Hilton Head, SC. This is the first time we have stayed at a Marriott Resort. Friends have told us that Marriott is "the BEST", and after this vacation, I must say that I agree (however Diamond Resorts run a very close second)! Everything from check-in to departure was first class. The people at the desk were so nice and check in and check out went without a hitch. We were not pressured in the least to attend a time-share presentation after we said that we were not interested. There were activities every day including a Smores cookout, chili night, and a hamburger/brat night as well as craft activities during the day.
We did rent a car, and if you want to really see the whole island this would be a necessity. We went to Savannah, GA and Charleston, SC to sight see. Both cities are easy to get to and very interesting and historical.
The accommodations were wonderful - everything was sparkling clean. The washer/dryer was the first full size laundry appliance that we have ever had in a resort. It was very nice to be able to wash a full load of clothes. There were 2 bedrooms, the first had a king bed (very comfortable) and the other had 2 queen beds. The huge walk-in shower in the master suite was outstanding. There were 3 flat screen TVs, one in each bedroom and one in the living room area. We were on the 5th floor overlooking the lagoon - every morning we had coffee on the balcony. The weather was warm and wonderful in January and flowers were blooming, grass was green, and trees were leafed out. And it was so nice to have an elevator!
The kitchen appliances were (or at least appeared to be) brand new. The kitchen has just about every small appliance you can think of except a waffle iron! But there are no condiments at all, so if you are planning to cook it would be a smart idea to bring salt and pepper at the minimum. There is a small "store" in the main office that sells basic food stuffs and toiletries - cereal, pancake mix, soup, a few seasonings, some drinks, aspirin, etc. These things are quite expensive compared to a regular grocery store but if something is forgotten you can get it here if necessary.
Wi-fi is free in each room. There are 2 computers available in the office to use for web surfing and/or to print boarding passes.The daily newspaper (USA Today) is available free every weekday morning.
All in all, this is a first-class resort and we loved it! Can hardly wait to go back to this beautiful place!
