Amazing grounds with outdoor hammocks and cabanas. They have a lovely pool with movies showing on a big screen at night, for the kids. The hotel decor and rooms are beautiful and very modern. It's expensive, but it's worth it. There's a $47 shuttle from the Savannah airport, and we later found out that USairways flies directly into HHI several times daily , which is an easy 10 minute cab ride.
The only thing we disliked was that their trademark orange towels would be left by guests on the beach, and they would often sit there, near the entrance to the beach, for days. They need to send housekeeping out daily to pick up the towels, which end up marring an amazing beach view. I'd like to say that it's not their fault, but the towels are so close to the hotel, there really is no excuse for not having housekeeping out there to pick them up.
Still, this is an amazing hotel, that we highly recommend.
