The place is just as it was in1990. The mattresses are from 1996 and 1993 in unit 2302. They will not change them after 5 years of complaining. Lights out in every room, garbage disposal does not work, towel bars falling apart, smelly couches and chairs, a 1990's TV in the bedroom and no reliable cable or Wi Fi. One pool is always closed in Oct and my unit sleeps 8, but you can only seat three without using the bar stools or dining chairs. You may only have one car on property even with a 2 bedroom unit. There is no available safe parking anywhere near this complex. Avoid this un less you are used to being dissapointed

Room Tip: Try a Marriott timeshare instead

Spotlessly clean. Pools well maintained. Walking distance to everything: beach, nice shops, grocery store across street, restaurants, 3 pools. Security 24/7. Customer service was wonderful. Bonnie was great. Property manager was very informative. Kitchen was beautiful. Nice sized balcony. No need to even get the car keys out. Will return.

First trip to Hilton Head. Stayed here. The time share smelled of mildew and mold. Staff in in office were you check in needs hostility training. They act like your broughting them . Came in to see if there was anything they could do about the smell. They were arguing with some quest about the wrong week. Instead of trying to solve there room problem. Mattress were old and uncomfortable. WiFi was spotty. Hot tube needs work. Grounds people nice. Not enough seating in living room. Stove was dirty. They should check to make sure rooms don’t smell before guest arrives. Needs up dated.

We love our week each year at Sea Crest Surf. It is in the best location across from Coligny Plaza so unless we want to can walk to stores, restaurants, and shopping. Our unit 5515 has been refurbished and so pleasant. New beds, bedding, flat screen TV in bedroom now. It's a 1 BR loft. Freshly painted and new upholstery on living room furniture. It is quiet this time of year and we only have about a 5 minute walk to the beach. Pools are great too. If you are looking for a nice small complex with good accommodations I highly recommend. We've been coming for 10 years and never regret it.

Was here on May...was told when I asked to get an extended check out time that I would be fined if not out by 10 PM...not friendly...and I'm a time share owner here...and they looked at the clock menacingly when I did check out...now I checked in again a couple of days ago and keys to my unit were given to someone who had no right to be in my unit...confusion seems to be increasing...a staffer was out sick due to a death in the family,and there was no one to replace her.Mattresses are becoming rock solid...we're told that they are replaced every 4 years..hardly seems credible.
