For every year since I was born, my family has traveled to the wondrous Hilton Head Island for our yearly splash in the sun. However, after spending numerous trips at Marriott’s Grand Ocean resort we decided to tryout a new place, Marriott’s SurfWatch resort. This little slice of heaven however is not so easily found. The minuscule sign signaling to turn left at the next available drive is very hard to see and my family and I have passed it many times, when looking for the resort. To some this would seem an inconvenience, but it has provided my family with a reminder every time we travel back!
Like any Marriott resort, you are accommodated with five star services and pleasant locations. From the moment your car is ushered in through SurfWatch’s broad gates, you are filled with evangelical zeal upon seeing the beauty of the resort’s lake and lush wildlife. Marriott’s SurfWatch is surrounded by an immense amount of wildlife, which provides soothing croaking sounds that help lull you to sleep. After you arrive at the main house for check in, the worldly and friendly Marriott staff offer you a helpful map and if you are lucky mouth watering peach jellybeans. Their friendliness gives you a sense of being at home, in a comforting environment surrounded by many local and amazing activities. The welcoming staff also provides everyone with a list of daily activities for all ages, including family movies, Bingo, and morning workout routines. Unfortunately, the resort sometimes is unable to have your room ready exactly when you arrive. This can sometimes prove as an hinderance, but does not stop you from exploring the grounds which include: several lukewarm and spacious pools, hammocks, boardwalks, bike paths, a market place, Ping-Pong tables and other sport related areas. Not only is SurfWatch accommodating to all of your daily needs by providing small restaurants and golf cart transportation, its rooms provide a spacious getaway from the hot and sticky weather. The SurfWatch rooms contain a full working kitchen, an enormous living room, elegant dining room, several other bedrooms (depending on how big your family is), a free washer and dryer, and wonderful bathrooms. Some perks about this resort include: the master bedroom having a huge shower with 6 different shower heads and dream mattresses that allow oneself to sleep all hours of the day. Just spending one week at Marriott’s SurfWatch resort has kept me coming back every summer, sometimes even twice if I’m lucky! This resort draws you in like the land of the Lotus Eaters and provides your family with a week of fun in the sun and memories that will last a lifetime.
