“Nice bit of Disney in Low Country”
Reviewed 7 January 2014

We've stayed In many of the Disney Vacation Club resorts at the BIG place in Orlando. This one was very similar but with a little South Carolina flair. It's situated on a marsh and adjacent to a Marina. If you ever stayed at one of the other DOCs, you'll be familiar with the rooms' layouts, quality of furnishings, etc. There were lots of great activities for children/families such as table tennis, billiards, etc. at no extra charge as well as fishing (ranging from renting a pole and bait for a few bucks to $40 deep sea excursions), kayaking, dolphin boat tours and nature walks. It was a pleasant, relaxing place to stay and the staff was predictably courteous and helpful in that Disney way. The only drawback is that it's not on the beach so you have to either take a free shuttle or drive.

This was our first time at this resort. We loved the personal attention we received. Our room was clean and had everything we needed. We had a lovely view of the marsh and saw the tide come in and go out. We especially appreciated the option to join in for events or not depending on how we felt. We went to campfire storytelling, made Mickey tie dyed shirts and won at Goofy Bingo. There were many more activities offered but we never felt pressured to join them. The entire staff was welcoming, personable and attentive. We walked around the harbour to shop and tried out one of the restaurants on that side which was nice. All in all we had all we wanted which made for a very relaxing way to start the new year.

Room Tip: Top floors are quieter but there are no elevators so be prepared to carry your luggage up several fl...

This was the third time my husband and I have stayed at this resort, all during Christmas holidays. This year was the first year, though, that the hotel has been so busy (at 100% capacity). Like past visits, we stayed in a studio unit, but this time we were in a wheelchair-accessible unit, not what we wanted since we were already far away from the hot tub & now a hot bath wasn't possible.
Good things to note: comfortable bed and sofa, wonderful service; nice view of marsh
Not so good: nowhere to hang coats or pool towels; we could often hear our neighbors on both sides; small TV and impossible to get to AV jacks on back (wanted to stream a movie but couldn't hook up the cables)
We know that most studio units are in the buildings far away from the pool, so we come prepared with heavy robes to make the 4-5 minute walk to the hot tub. Several other families saw this and said they'd do that next time. The only problem we had with this was in returning to the room with wet robes- one of the framed pictures got covered up by our drying robes hanging from it.
We will go back when we visit Hilton Head again, possibly with a set of over-the-door hangers. :-)

Room Tip: The main building (#11 & 12) has the elevators. Most activities, the general store, and the coun...

Spent a week here with my family. It was a great time. There were so many activities we could do from trivia, bingo, fishing, dolphin watching, beach combing, swimming pools, local shops and golfing. It was a tad cold when I went but that didn't matter, however I do see how that could ruin a beach vacation. It was not the "Disney" you get in WDW, but it was fun nonetheless.

Met my family at Disney's Hilton Head Island Resort for a pre-Christmas celebration trip. The resort was top notch. The rooms were spacious and impeccably well kept. The staff went out of their way to be friendly and helpful. The resort amenities and activities were adequate and exactly the type required for a relaxing trip. They have two properties which you can access with your resort key card. The Disney Beach House is a beautiful property near the Marriott resort. A great little restaurant with reasonably priced drinks. Shuttle service operates between both properties, but you can also take advantage of the scenic trails. This is a perfect get away for those looking to get the Disney accommodations without the characters and large crowds. A must stay, I look forward to booking our next trip soon.

From the great welcome at the top of the stairs as I went to register, until we left it was wonderful.
We always spend Christmas at Hilton Head, this year we decided to go for two weeks. We lucked out and found a place at Disney for our first week. The bed was heavenly, the kitchen was fully equipped, and we had the best unit in the complex ( we thought). We do not do stairs well, and although we had not asked for a first floor unit, they found one for us. We were in
Cottage 3111 and it is right next to the entrance to the marina so we got to see a couple of yachts come and go, along, with lots of smaller boats, and kayaks. One day the dolphins were jumping and were so close.. If one wishes to be entertained and kept busy this is the place to be. We are
Older and did not participate but that was just our choice. The Beach House is marvelous and would love to go again in the summer. Try it, you will like it.

Room Tip: Highly recommend cottage #3111

Reviewed 28 December 2013

I took this trip with my husband an 10-month old son as a long weekend before Christmas. We absolutely loved this resort. We had a studio room. The room was very spacious and our son had a great time trying to stand up and walk. Everything was very clean. I heard nothing from our neighbors on either side. There were plenty of lights in the room. Our room overlooked the marsh, and we loved the view first thing in the morning. One of the highlights of our trip was taking our son to see Shadow, the resort's Golden Retriever. He was obviously well-trained, and immediately flopped over to let our son rub his belly.

Even though it was December, the pool was heated, and we had a wonderful time swimming. I noticed the shuttle running often to the beach house and back. There were many activities going on, although we didn't participate. We had good meals at both Signals and Tide Me Over. Also, the staff was very knowledgeable in recommending an inexpensive family restaurant. We had an excellent stay and we hope to be back sometime soon!

Room Tip: Building 12 has elevator access -- recommended if you have a little one in a stroller, since first f...
