Families will love this oceanfront resort which offers beach cabanas and lots of family fun things to do. Families can walk the private boardwalk to the beach or take the free golf cart shuttle. There are six tennis courts, an indoor running track and badminton court. Biking, volleyball and surfing are also on the list of things to do at this resort. If the sand is not your family’s thing then try out the two outdoor pools where the kids can swim and play and the adults can relax and unwind. And even if it is a rainy day, there is an indoor pool too that families can enjoy. The resort offers an assortment of accommodation options too so any size family will enjoy a stay here.

We stayed at the Hilton Head Resort in condo 3209 and had a wonderful time. It was beautifully decorated and the master bed was brand new and so comfortable. The vacation was so relaxing and we look forward to our next vacation.

The unit my family stayed in was at a reduced, last minute, summer price and was the reason we went ahead and booked it. The unit itself was decorated very nicely and was clean. No bugs, dirt, etc. The bath tubs/fixtures definitely need updated though, as well as, it needs new doors throughout the entire unit. It is small but is enough room for a family of 4-5. The kitchen is well stocked! We cooked in several nights and had all we needed. The actual resort was very disappointing in my opinion. It’s very old. That is not an issue with us, but they are not updating and taking care of various issues. Paint was peeling off of ceilings everywhere, the doors to stairs were gross, not well lit, maneuvering the actual resort was a nightmare, and apparently they want to fine you for everything. I really was not impressed at all. We’ve stayed at HHI many times in the various plantations. Shipyard is our favorite! We decided to try a resort this year and we will 100% not do it again. It did not have the “nice HHI vacation feel” to it that I have come to love and expect on the island. As for the actual beach, it was the most beautiful and clean beach area I’ve ever experienced at HHI. The water was so warm! Unfortunately, we almost roasted in the upper 90 degree weather... but that was our fault!
