Family Reunion with 3 families coming to the resort for spring break.
First experience is the Gate Women Nazi whom treated the 4 cars from 3 families very rudely and unwelcoming. She had tremendous difficultly with more then one car that enter the resort at different times not allowing my Wife and Daughter in because my daughter was driving while wife was on the list. Same last name come on. Gate Nazi caused hard time when we tried to rent paddle boards and kayaks from off site location.
Worst is the Security Force/Police that is a complete small town force with a Chief, Captains... How is that funded you ask. Well they send their young go getters out at night to ticket whomever for whatever. My 17 year old daughter was ticketed for $200 for reckless driving because she panicked after seeing all the other golf carts pulled over being ticketing and hit the brakes too hard. The security officer came to the house to present the ticket and after a family member questioned the ticket and the intent had his supervisor about ready to arrest my adult sister. This security force has way too much policing power in the state of SC.
Positives where the golf course employees were more then friendly and accommodating. Island was well maintained but was dated for sure.
When you do anything they require your official island cards which I find funny since there is so much security at the gate. Just to eat at a restuarant you must present you cards, who wants to worry about carry those on vacation.
