    Hilton head Island is our Paradise!

    One of our very favourite places in America is Hilton Head Island! With its perfect twelve miles of fine sand beaches, massive live oak trees mixed with gently swaying palms and the friendliest people you'll ever meet where Southern hospitality takes on a whole new meaning. Stunning hotels resorts and restaurants have very reasonable prices, just the icing on the cake.

    Perfect ... nothing else to say

    First ... the staff was excellent. We’ve stayed at many a different resorts and nowhere way the staff more welcoming and helpful. Rooms... very nice. Clean and comfortable. The only downside is the view from the balcony is very limited. For a beachfront resort very few of the rooms, if any , actually have a view of the beach. And the walk from the elevator is considerable from most of the rooms. Not that big. De because we were there in the off season but in high season I would I,give the elevator would become. Bottleneck Breakfast - overpriced

    Pleasant Stay

    Had the opportunity to stay here just before the coronavirus impacted South Carolina. Found the staff to be friendly and helpful in the trying circumstances, and it had nice grounds and beach access. The rooms could use some updating.
