We stayed on the north end of the "resort" which was suppose to be the updated side. The rooms smelled like a bug bomb was set off before our stay and we found a bed bug along with bloody sheets in our room. The front desk moved our room and sent our belongings to be heat treated in their bed bug heater. This ruined a whole day of our vacation. The front desk management was less than helpful and told me that they filled their obligations because they moved our room and heat treated our belongings and our lost day, which I paid for was on us. I was referred to the COO at their cooperate headquarters after the front desk refused to work with me and spend a couple days going back and fourth before settling on a refund that was less than what I paid for a whole day. The front desk is only available until 8:30 then they leave for the day. There was mold in first room, dirty flooring in both, appliances which didn't work and our tv went out the last two days we were there. The second room they moved us too smelled worse than the first room and the bug spray was overwhelming. The walls are thin and the upstairs neighbors kept us up a couple nights. Probably not their fault because the walls are so thin I could hear their conversations. I would stay away

The check in was a bit of a mess. I think the person we had was new, but she was fine. The thing that we have a real problem with is we got there and asked how we got to our apartment from the clubhouse as we didn't rent a car for the weekend. We were given terrible directions that led us in the complete wrong direction and as we had someone that was pregnant with us we ended up having to take an Uber. If we were given the correct instructions it was a short quick walk we could have done. Additionally we found out that there was carts available that someone could have used to take us over to the condo, but it wasn't offered to us. Calling during the stay took several calls because they just didn't answer the phone. Questions were met with a bit of attitude. The actual condo was greatand spacious and that why I'm not.giving 1 star. I don't know if I would stay here again.

I’ll start with the good. Coral Sands is a great location on Hilton Head. Close to the beach and Coligny Plaza for food and shopping. Main pool and lazy river are fun! Rooms are spacious and comfortable! All of that being said the resort is older and needs some attention. Although bathrooms, kitchen and overall surfaces were clean the room needed a serious thorough deep cleaning. Ceiling fans were disgusting, patio and patio furniture were stained and dirty. Patio door very difficult to open. I called about the ceiling fans and they offered to come and clean, but seemed totally uninterested in my call. Decided to not have them cleaned while there didn’t want the dust our stuff we just didn’t use them. Garbage disposal did not work.

Condo was clean and roomy for 3 travelers. Keypad entry so you didn’t have to worry about losing keys. Pool area was nice. Friendly and helpful staff. Great location only an hour from Savannah & two from Charleston

Simply …. Do not stay here! Upon check in we were told that unit wouldn’t be available earlier than 4pm because it was carpet cleaning day. While this should have been a good thing it clearly was not. Carpets were filthy and damp to walk on but also whatever they used to clean with left a strong musty mildewed odor that was unbearable it kept us both awake all nite. Smell finally dissipated on 3rd morning. We booked this thru RCI and were put in the Springwood Villas. If this is where they place you insist on being moved. We tried and were told nothing was available the entire week we stayed. Be advised that you must walk up 19 steps to get to your front door and another 14 to where the bedrooms are. The 2 bdrm “villa” was old outdated and just dirty everywhere you looked. One shower still had someone’s hair clip attached to curtain. The Springwood Villas also have a small pool but when we asked how to enter thru side gate between buildings we were told only can access pool from the spiral staircase from outside our balcony. How dangerous is that! trying to go up and down a spiral staircase carrying towels, bag and wet flip flops! We never used that pool again after trying it once… very slippery and again dangerous! I could go on but I’d be here for a while, this place is advertised as a gold crown resort thru RCI and after staying at other gold crown resorts I can 100% tell you this is falsely advertised. Customer service is non existent and needs to be addressed. Trust me when I say go elsewhere!
