A nice little getaway on the island
by TrVL4LiFe on January 6, 2005
Best Things Nearby:Many golf courses in the area, Mall at Shelter Cove, mini-golf courses, movie theater, shopping outlets, and restaurants are just a short drive from the resort.Best Things About the Resort:Clay tennis courts, heated swimming pool, Jacuzzi on-siteResort Experience:Accommodations were nice. Our two-bedroom villas were smaller and a bit older than the other Marriott resorts we have stayed at, but they were comfortable. They had full kitchens with washer and dryer. The weather was perfect for December--in the 70s. My family was able to get a break from the cold weather. Since we live in Charleston, the drive was about 2 hours, so we usually just spend a day here at a golf course. It was nice to spend a couple of days here. You can rent bikes for $25 for the whole week. They have a nice biking/jogging trail across the highway at the other Marriott resort. There you can take in a couple of hours of kayaking. This is not an oceanfront resort. The downside to Hilton Head was that most of the restaurants and stores are hidden along the highway behind trees, and worst of all, they all look the same! Be careful driving here at night.
