Marriott Resort and Spa, one of the finest Hilton Head Hotels. I cannot imagine a better birthday gift. An overnight stay in a beautiful oceanfront resort.
What a wonderful place it is starting with a spacious, elegant lobby, tastefully decorated rooms and breathtaking ocean view, ending with a cup of Starback's coffee in the morning.
When we checked in, I was nicely surprised with two guest robes with Marriott's logo. I was silly enough to try one on right away.
My birthday is in March so we were lucky to have nice weather, warm enough to sit on the balcony and enjoy the view. We decided to turn off our cell phones for the occasion, so we could just talk, laugh, remember old times and relax. And we did, totally forgetting all everyday problems. Well...that was a general idea.
Me Being Lazy
We ate dinner at Conroy's, an onsite restaurant of Marriott Resort and Spa, and our salmon was delicious.
We didn't use an indoor pool (no time!) but it is available and I was tempted but decided to try it next time.
It was hard to leave. We stayed in bed as long as we could. The ocean view was magnificent especially that our room was on one of the highest floors. But...finally, it was time to go.
On our way out we stopped at a little Starback's coffee shop (also on premises, they have everything!) and had our farewell cup of coffee.
When driving away from Marriott Resort and Spa I had a feeling that we spent a week somewhere miles away from home. It was a wonderful experience leaving a charming memory.
We only spent one night in Marriott Resort and Spa. There is a lot more there than we had time to do. First of all female guests should pamper themselves in Marriott's Spa. On our next stay I am allowing myself at least a couple of hours there. Spa would be a great start for a day or two of total relaxation.
If you are planning a wedding consider Marriot as a Host.
Golf and tennis is at hand not to mention kayaking or canoeing and biking. Whether you are new to the island or an experienced islander you must always go across the highway and see Shelter Cove with its beautiful marina, waterfront shopping and dining.
