Our very first trip to Hilton Head! We arrived on Thursday before Memorial Day around 9pm. We ate a late lunch so we could enjoy some of the local food there when we got there. Once we checked in and got situated in the room, we looked for restaurants. Since we didn't know the area and had just driven for 5 hours we didn't want to venture out of Seapines. Very, very few are open past 10 on a weeknight and the ones that are open are more of a bar and would not let the two 17 year old girls we had with us in to eat. We finally were told about a Mellow Mushroom, which really didn't bother me since I love their food, but we were all hoping for some seafood or something local. Our villa was great, about 1/2 mile from Harbour Town and about 5 or so miles to the beach. I know the new beach club will be amazing once it opens, it looks so nice.
The trolley was GREAT!!! Takes you just about wherever you want to go in the resort. Sometimes you have a fairly long wait, but the weather was great so it wasn't bad.
The girls para-sailed, rode horses, and rented bikes and we all had a ball!!! The prices for the horses and para-sailing was a bit steep, but we all loved the experience.
Our villa was really nice, a few hiccups in the cleanliness/appearance of it, but nothing that could not have been taken care of ourselves. The only issue I think I really had was the condition of the metal chairs on our patio. Three of the four of them were completely rusted through the support area of the chairs making them useless. We overlooked a lagoon on a golf course and had daily visitors of alligators and turtles which was pretty neat.
My husband and I did an informal wedding vow renewal on a little sitting area on the property overlooking the lagoon with our children, and it was a perfect place to do it!
We had a great time at this resort and will definitely be back!
