“Great Alternative to a Hotel”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

We recently stayed at the Island Club in Hilton Head. We rented a fifth floor cond. The condo was completely renovated. We had a beautiful view and all of the amenities of home. We ate breakfast and lunch at the condo every day so we could enjoy the beach and the pool. The beach is very clean and the pool is great. The property is very well maintained and in a gated community. You can rent bikes, play tennis, or just enjoy the wonderful weather. There are many community grills on the property to use as well. I would absolutely stay at the Island Club again.

Room Tip: We had a fifth floor room. It was very quiet and had a fabulous view even though we were not directl...

I am writing a review of this wonderful place from July of 2013. We visited for a week and had a great time with our family. The two bedroom villa was great. We were right on the beach and had beach side view. It was quiet and so nice to just be able to walk out to the beach whenever we wanted to. The place is awesome with lots of places to sit and swing and grill. They have places to play basketball, tennis and a pool. The curb appeal is very pretty. We also went to the playground every evening and sat on "Betsy's bench" to watch the kids play. It was really really nice and relaxing. I only gave it 4 stars because the villas could use a little bit of updating but they were great and spacious. I would definitely recommend and I would definitely return. Great memories made with my family for sure!

Room Tip: I would choose to stay in the buildings closest to the beach.

Seawatch is a great family location for the beach oriented family. Twelve miles of clean wide beach right out your door. The 2 bedroom units have been updated and are plenty large for a family of 4, 6 if you want to use the sleeper sofa. The units are right on the beach - some ocean front and some ocean side. Well furnished, well maintained with an unobtrusive staff. A call to the front office for any problem is dealt with quickly. My unit was on the 4th floor and had a great ocean view from the balcony. This place just feels like home not a hotel. The Island Club timeshares are the best kept secret on the Island. Rent or trade here if you get a chance, you wont be disapointed. Don't miss the free cookout on Thursdays at noon.

We've traded for a unit there this next July.
Try it.

Room Tip: If you have a choice try for Building 8 - Ocean front. For a view like always higher is better. Wi...

Have spent spring break at the Island Club on Hilton Head Island for 20 of the last 22 years. Love it. The living rooms face lovely lagoons or the ocean. The bedroom window of the units face the parking lot but it is surrounded with gorgeous azaleas, other flowers, palms, and kumquat trees. The entire resort is very attractive with the exception of the workout room. It is what it needs to be. My family prefers to walk or run on the beach, fly kites, play soccer, dig in the sand, and swim for exercise. We have used the ten tennis courts often, as well as the racquet ball court, basketball court, ladderball and cornhole games, and playground. As with most resorts, maintenance and replacement of things is done regularly. In my 22 years of visiting the pool was closed only one year, while redoing it and the surrounding area, including adding heat. I let my kids wander the property in pairs once they hit the age of 8 or 9 because it is so safe. The rooms are always clean. Upon check-in, you receive a sheet in which you can request midweek housekeeping service for a fee. Maintenance is always there promptly if there is a leaky dishwasher. Each condo has a washer-dryer so you can wash towels or sheets every day if you'd like. It is rare that you can hear any of the neighbors. We have brought many friends and relatives with us over the years and all have enjoyed their rooms and the resort. I highly recommend The Island Club Resort.

We got a letter telling us RCI assigned condos and could not be change. Well, we knew the crap had hit the fan. Our condo was 1st floor beside trash dumpsters and backed to fence looking at a road. Carpet in place is older than Moses and dirty. No maid service and no change of sheets for bed. Lagoons are fake holes in ground with green dye in the water. Pool on website said heated.. Not heated and not open. Workout center is size of a shoe box with video surveillance . Lol. What a joke.. Not one redeeming value expect their employees were nice. Sales called too much , so disconnect phones. Employee maintenance tried to gain entrance to our condo without any notification. "To replace faucet handles". Get a life.
Last place on earth to take a vacation . My fellow tripadvisors rated this over 4. Please people.. What planet are you on???

I can't believe that my family was able to stay in such a lovely timeshare that is directly on such a beautiful beach at Christmas. What great luck! Best equipped kitchen ever at a timeshare with plenty of dishes for cooking Christmas dinner. Very nice and helpful staff who are knowledgable about the area. Spacious timeshare overlooking the ocean. Free hot dog and hamburger lunch needs a vegetarian option however.

We recently spent two weeks at the Island Club Seawatch-we stayed in two different units and liked both.
The first week we were in building 9 Seawatch and had a wonderful ocean view (3rd floor) The next week we were in building 7 Seawatch with a lagoon and ocean view(2nd floor). This was our first visit to Seawatch and we loved the location right on the beach. Both units were the same-granite countertops in the kitchen were nice. We had a two bedroom, two bath. The bedrooms were right next to each other so it is really best for a couple or small family, probably would be too close quarters for two couples.

They were doing construction while we were there(which we did not know about ahead of time) and the noise was somewhat bothersome. They were working some nights after 9pm.This should be finished after the first of next year.

We enjoyed the hamburger cookout on Thursdays and that was great-a nice lunch.

We would stay here again.

Room Tip: Higher floors have better views of the ocean and beach
