Our family has stayed here for years. We've stayed condos in three of the buildings (two across from main pool and one on the back side near kiddie pool.) We loved the new updates that Waterside has made with their condo. We stay in the 3 bedroom that accommodates all of us. Two bedrooms with king size beds and one... More

First of all I have never been on this side of Hiltonhead. It was indeed a great experience. There s a toll of $1.25 for you to get to the Waterside Resort from Atlanta. The resort was very well kept and our 3 bedroom condo was just remodeled and very spacious. There were 2 king size bedrooms and a room... More

Resort is admittedly getting on in years and needs some upgrading. However, great location only a short walk to the beach (1/2 mile) Friendly responsive staff. Nice pool at building 58 which the pool-decking had just been repainted the week we were there. There are alligators, at least 3 on the property in the lagoon under the cross bridge- one... More

Such a relaxing place to vacation. This well decorated and secluded place has great amenities in structured activities (candle making, wine tastings, pool parties and competitions, etc.), great and helpful personnel (at the desk, within the complex, housekeeping, activity personnel, and the like) and everyone acts like they are glad you are there.
