I haven't been to this resort but if you pay $15 to become a member (well worth it for reviews & sightings board) you can read the reviews from tug members on tug's resort database. There are currently 9 reviews on this resort from tug members. I find these reviews to be very helpful and accurate. HH is a beautiful island, very relaxing.
In June '07, we were in Unit- #324(third floor) in building 18. #324 was a lovely 3 bedroom, 3 bath end unit. The front of the building faces the beautiful lagoon shaped pool. Take a short walk across parking lot & you are at the pool & clubhouse. The area behind the building is wooded. You can see Union Cemetry Rd. through the fence that surrounds Island Links. I have no doubt that you will enjoy your week there. Enjoy!
Coral Reef is the Shipyard area /South End near Pope Circle not the North End of the island.
You are near everything on Pope Ave/Coligny Circle. I am here now at Monarch in Sea Pines.
Weather is overcast but nice. There are many restaurants. Go to the link in the other post but pick up a restaurant guide at most supermarkets on the island as it has menus and early birds specials(5-6pm) if you eat early.
On restaurant.com I got coupons for The Studio,Bistro Mezzaluna. I have been coming here for 8 years. There are many threads about where to eat on the BBS.
Be aware that there are many places tucked inside little
plazas so for a newbie it is best to drive around in the daytime and use a gps. The island is 12 miles x 5 miles so you can get around quickly. If flying into Savannah it is about 40 minutes to the island. 17 miles from exit 8 RT 95.
Not sure about Coral Reef as I stay at Marriotts but there are plenty of places nearby. We just rented for 17pp rather than rent at Marriott for 25pp for the week. There are several to chose from and they drop off/pick up with baskets and locks included. It costs extra for helmets and tandem bikes etc.
You will want to go to Savannah and take the trolley tour. You can get on and off so you can stay at each stop as long as you wish. The weather is getting great to be outside. Temps and humidity are getting a little better. It will take about an hour to get to Savannah. Take 278 to 170. Also Beaufort is a nice place to take a carriage narrative tour. It will take about 45 minutes from the island. Charleston is worth a trip but takes longer. There are also boat tours from HHI to Savannah. Get out on the water on a dolphin cruise. The 2008-2009 Theater season on HHI is presenting La Cage aux Folles. Their performances are usually very good. HHI is about relaxation. Walk on the beach, take bike rides, etc. Sit under the shade of an oak and read a local novel(ck with Barnes and Nobles on the island for suggestions). We'll be in Athens Georgia following the DAWGS for the weekend, but will be home Sunday. E-mail me if you have other questions. We live in Sun City between the interstate and the island. Yoiu will find good suggestions for restaurants and other ideas from reviews and previous posts. The reviews are well worth the $10 to join TUG.
