Currently at Ocean Enclave. I’m such a fan of cruise critic, I will post a review and photos next week when I get back. If you have any questions let me know.

I booked an Oceanfront Premier unit exactly at the 9 month mark. I traveled to Charleston and stayed there for two nights. I went by Liberty Place Charleston and wonder when it will be done. HGVC website says it is scheduled to open in 2020, but as you can see by the photos below, I wonder if they are on schedule.

The location is going to be good and central to everything. The point structures posted on the website seem excessive due to lack of no view.

I stayed in an Oceanfront Premier unit, 1805A. I learned the following while there and am a little confused by what is posted on the website. There are four units per floor that are Premier, meaning Oceanfront. 05 A & B and 06 A & B. The "A" is a two bedroom and the "B" is a one bedroom. There is a door that connects both units to make the three bedroom Premier units. HGVC website says at 2bdrm Premier is 1391 sq ft and a 1 bdrm Premier is 877 sq ft, but only list a 3 bdrm Premier as 1583 sq ft. I doubt they lockoff the whole unit except the bedroom. The photos on the website are of the 1 bedroom units. The 'B" units are end units.

The resort is new and beautiful and full of technology. The elevators take your key card and then you pick your floor. The screen tells you which elevator to take.

This is the view of the resort as you turn onto 16th Ave. from N Kings Hwy. The parking garage is on the left and about 300 feet from the resort.

Lobby. The gentleman on the phone helped me. It seemed that the Premier units were not all booked as he asked me if I wanted to be high, middle, or low. I picked middle and got the 18th floor. There are 27 floors.

Here is photo to show you the difference between the plus units and premier units. The units closest to the beach are premier. (right side of photo). The windows next to the solid white line (on the right side of the photo) are the master bedrooms in the 2 bedroom unit. The base units are on the right side of the photo closer to the street and not the beach (not pictured), but you can see the balconies in the photo posted above when I was on 16th Ave.

This is the view looking out of the master bedroom. The divider is between unit A & B. You can see the space between the wall and the divider. It is very easy to look at the other balcony so privacy is limited.

When we checked in the concierge was on the phone so I did not get my welcome packet. I purposely did not wait because I did not want to deal with the pressure to attend an owners' update.

The morning after checking in at 8:40am, the phone in our unit rang. My kids were still sleeping and I was up, but not really up. I was annoyed by the call and figured I knew who it was calling. I went down to the concierge to ask about water park tickets because I had read here on Tug that Ocean 22 gives them out. At this point I was confronted with, "you did not receive your welcome packet". The lady was very nice and tried to set me up for an update. At this point, I was aware that she was either not well versed in the rules or tried to pull one on me. I told her that I was going to complete my update in Hawaii when I travel there later in the year. She told me that I could do it in both places and receive 30,000 HH points or $75 gift certificate. There was a little pressure, but not an over abundance. I passed.

She provided me with free tickets to Broadway Grand Prix (value $37.95 per person), Wild Water & Wheels (value $29.98 per person), and Myrtle Waves (value $29.98 per person). The Grand Prix tickets is valid only one time, while the waterparks could be used several times. I also received several coupon books that I later saw around at other places and at news stands. We used all the free tickets and with four of us, it was nice to not have the expense.

We also went to a Pelicans baseball game which was awesome. There were fireworks after the game and we went on a Thursday when it was $1 beers.

The resort seemed to be off and what I mean is I think things are still too new for everything to run smoothly. Some employees just looked like they did not know what to do. At the pool, there was one person walking around taking drink and food orders. The guy walked by me several times without saying a word and holding a menu. It wasn't until I flagged him down did he make an effort. I never saw him make an effort to ask people if they wanted anything.

At the Sports Bar, the bartender had a tough time making a drink because she left her cheat sheet in her car and did not have time to go and get it once at work. All the employees were very friendly and nice, but I think as time goes on it will seem to run more smooth.

The concierge splits here time betwen Enclave and Ocean 22. I am not sure how many other employees are doing this.

All and all we had a very nice and enjoyable time. The resort is nice and new, but I think needs some more time to work out the kinks. I will return in years to come.

If you have any questions, let me know.

I walked down to Ocean 22 to see. I felt crowded because one entering the front doors you have to get into the elevator. Enclave has a more open feel when you enter.

Ocean 22 has dark woods while Enclave is more light and bright. When looking down the beach, both buildings stick out as being clean and light. I would consider Ocean 22 based on the point structure.

Thanks for all of the updates. Now I know what rooms to ask for next time for our next trip. Just stayed at Ocean 22 in June. Based on the photos from @jsparents both places look pretty comparable as far as interior finish. The one comment I would make is that Enclave appears to be a little less crowded for the drop off area and pool. Ocean 22 was a bit of a zoo getting in and out given how small the drop off space was.

@jsparents Thanks for the great resort report and pics! We were in MB last month and we declined a sales presentation . . . I mean Ocean Enclave tour so we didn’t see the inside at all.

I was thinking this entire thread. Those are good pics and the more resorts with pics like these, the more helpful the sticky thread is.
Yes, I will either extract or link or a combination of both. I will work on that the next few days. Thanks.
