Ive stayed there twice, most recently in April of this year, and enjoyed it thoroughly both times. The standard rooms are very large, each with a mini kitchen and dining area. All of the rooms open to an open-air breezeway. I was there with my extended family and we had three rooms, two of which were under my HHonors numberI believe I got over 22,000 points for the four nights we were there!

Anyway, the resort has two pools, one for adults only, a heated family pool and a kiddie wading pool. Theres a nice pool bar that also serves up sandwiches near the family pool. There are also a couple of hot tubs overlooking the beach. Of course, golf is huge on Hilton Head and a large tennis center is a short walk from the hotel (hourly rates for the courts is about $20!!)

The seafood restaurant in the hotel (cant remember the name) is pretty good. But my favorite seafood restaurant on the island is Charleys Crab.

To my knowledge, theyre arent really any amenities for HHonors members at the hotel.

Riding bikes around the island and on the beach is a big pastime, but dont rent them from the hotel unless you enjoy paying twice what you should. A large bike rental shop is located across from the tennis center with much better prices. The hotel does participate in the Vacation Station program, so they do have games and toys for the kids at no charge.

Overall, its a great resort.

Haven't been to that resort since two weeks ago when I stayed at the Barony Beach Club - however, the island is very nice (terrific beaches) and excellent dining at Brian's (seafood)and Napa (for steak).

Hilton Resort on Hilton Head Island, SC

I could not find a thread re this resort. I'm thinking about a TEEN reward stay at this place. Anyone with good/bad comments about the facilities, service, etc.?

Stayed there last December after X-Mas, they have the largest rooms on the island, all with kitchenettes and a lot of suites and rooms to upgrade.
Nice resort, shuttle within a couple miles of the hotel, Shelter Cove Mall, Restaurants etc, so if you fly there, you don`t need a car.
Staff was so lala, they played the Piky-Poky Game with 1-800 calls and wanted to charge me 30 USD but removed it from the bill.
They have a couple of restaurants on the premise, one of them is pretty good.
Location is brilliant.
Very solid resort but nothing really special, rates drop down to USD 59-69 in offseason.
I don`t know, when you like to go, but call the island Chmaber of Com. first, they have very good rates, perhaps it is not worth to spend the points.

We stayed at the Westin in June and did a "walk-through" of the Marriott and the Hilton. The Hilton was definitely the least impressive, though this opinion is based on a strictly visual 30-minute tour.

Hilton Head Resort - Any Recent Stays?

Just booked a TEEN award at the Hilton Head Resort and was wondering if anyone has had a recent stay there and could report on the rooms and resort.

Also do you get the GOLD status amenities on a free award(upgrade and breakfast) or are they only available on a stay that you pay for?

Thanks in advance,
Bob

I had a one-night stay at the Hilton Head Hilton about 18 months ago. The one thing I remember is exterior corridors that are noisy and "cement-ish." As I recall, the room was OK but I don't recall any amenities. My second night was at the Hilton Head Westin, where I was upgraded to a two-room suite with sauna and whirlpool tub and a great ocean view. Guess which property gets my vote.

I am wondering if anyone has had success with getting an upgrade at this hotel. I am traveling with a small child and would like to have a bedroom with a door since he goes to sleep at 7:30!

While the web site states that there is a speprate sitting area when I called I was informed that it is not closed off. The hotel also told me that they do not upgrade diamonds--I hope that this was just an error. Any insight would be helpful
(westin is sold out so that is not an option).

Hilton Head Resort Adventures Club for Kids

Can anyone tell me about this? I saw this on there web site but with little explaination. What do you know about this? Any idea on the cost?

We are looking for a place to take the family for vacation, wife and 2 kids 9&12. Would like somewhere that had activites for them. I don't mind being bored on vacation, however they need a little stimulation.

I was wondering the same thing. The only info I could get from the website is that the camp only runs from Memorial - Labor Days.
