My family has vacationed in Sea Pines for 20 yrs. It has always been a wonderful experience until this year. We visited as usual, the week of July 4th, and expected the crowds. We knew to arrive at the beach club before noon to get a parking space....well not this year! With 5 adults and 2 toddlers in tow, we arrived by 10:30 every day and could find nowhere to park...even in the overflow lot across the street. We had to drive back to a shopping center where we waited 25 minutes in the broiling sun with a 2yr old and a 1yr old for the trolley....too full to enter one day, and so full the next that we had to hold all of our equipment and the children. After finally arriving at the beach, we were dropped off at the back of the lot, again to carry all the necessary equipment with 2 toddlers all the way to the actual beach. After all this time, the children (and adults I should add) had had it. We attempted to calm them down with a small lunch.....wow....$55 later we had 4 hotdogs, a turkey sandwich (lousy) and 2waters. In past years, the beach grill was perfect ....hamburgers, chicken fingers, and quick service.....well, no more. With the new construction of a "5 star" restaurant those simple days appear gone. yes, we could have chosen the sit down menu of the new restaurant and spent twice as much, but with fussy children that did not seem a good idea.
So, it is with deep regret that my family will have to find a new resort on Hilton Head. Sea Pines has apparently chosen to cater to higher class customer than my family has been all these years
