“Super Family Resort”
Reviewed April 20, 2014

We travelled from Ireland to Hilton Head for the first part of our 2 week vacation to the US. Surf Watch is a fantastic resort for families. If you want to spend quality time with the kids.. Cycling, golfing, beach walks, playing tennis this is the place.. If you like to cook in there are great BBQ facilities there.. If you like to eat out be prepared to drive as there are no restaurants nearby and the choices of restaurants are quite limited. Villas are newly renovated and are fab.. Staff at Surf Watch were exceptional especially their Front Desk Manager Tyler who blew us away.. We have stayed in Marriotts in many countries and have never come across someone with such fantastic customer service skills he was exceptional. Hilton Head is a beautiful place will be back.

Stayed at Surfwatch again last weekend. This place is the best on HHI and worth the money especially if you have family/extended family with you. Rooms are spacious and comfortable, and the resort amenities are awesome.

Staff has always been good but checked in with Rosa this time and she was the best! Stopped by the front desk the next day and she recognized me and remembered my name...and that makes you really feel welcome.

We stayed on our first visit ever to Hilton Head-stopped on our way back to NY. The weather was great and our 2bedroom suite looked brand new. The buildings are just a few steps from the beach-beautiful white sand beach complete with tiki bar and pool. There was so much to do right in the complex (we were told these are timeshare units,but are the nicest we've ever stayed in). Would definitely recommend this place. Room tip-stay in bldg.56 right on the beach.

This is our third stay at this resort and we just love it. They keep improving things! We really enjoyed all the onsite activities, including MANY that were free. I had been frustrated in the past that it costs so much to stay at a resort like this and then they want to nickel and dime you to death. There are free movies that can be watched in your villa or at the onsite cinema. There were complimentary some mores, brats, and music down by the fantastic fire pits! A large array of exercise classes, corn hole, horseshoes, shuffleboard, ping pong, foosball and pool provide hours of fun. There is an indoor pool and 2 outdoor pools, with at least one that was heated (not sure about the second). As always, the resort is clean and beautifully landscaped. Can't wait to come back.

It's been over 20 years since I visited Hilton Head but it definitely won't be another 20 before I return. I originally planned to stay in Savannah to visit a family friend but due to the St. Patrick's Day parade, there was no availability in the area we wanted. So, that led me to Hilton Head Island and I'm glad it did. The Surfwatch was a great location with easy access to the beach and lots of activities and great restaurants. This was also probably one of the best places I've been to try so many different kinds of foods--from fried alligator to BBQ to great seafood dishes. We took a Gullah tour, did some ziplining, and visited neighboring cities--including Savannah and Bluffton--for walking tours. The hotel staff was extremely friendly and met all of our needs. The rooms were spacious and modern and I appreciated the availability of nearby grills for those wishing to cookout. My only disappointment was a low buzzing sound in the room. I'm super sensitive to sound so it was annoying at times. All in all, a great time with my family (despite a couple of cold, cloudy days).

Room Tip: Building 55 has a parking garage and is near the beach. If you get a high floor (we were on 4) you c...

Family of five, children ages 6,6 & 9 had a fantastic time and are planning another trip. The resort is naturally beautiful and very well kept. We had a 2 bdrm condo overlooking the pool which was only a five minute walk to all the amenities including beach, 3 pools and main building. The condos are attractive and kitchen is well stocked for meal preparation. Rosa and Sandra were both friendly and helpful making suggestions and reservations when needed.
We loved being mid-island, easy bike ride to Palmetto Dunes, Shelter Cove and Port Royal. Chaplin Community Park across the road has a terrific playground, dog enclosure and fields for the busy active family.

This is a beautiful property with typically a 5 minute walk to the beach. Love their beach bar. They have done an excellent job updating the property. It's very low key and laid back. Villas have anything you'd ever want. Full kitchens & washer & dryer. You'll love it there!
