We were pretty worn out from waking up early and our nearly 400 mile trip Thursday, so we slept soundly our first night here at Hilton Head Island Motorcoach Resort. I’d have liked to have slept in a little bit yesterday morning, but was awakened to the sound of a maintenance guy trimming the brush around our RV site this morning. But what the heck, a place this big takes a lot of work to keep it looking good.
And it really does look good, from the well-groomed entry to the interior roads to the campsites.
This is a member-owned resort and the sites are very nice.
Here is the site we are parked on, which is owned by friends of ours. Once I get the new issue of the Gypsy Journal finished, I plan to spend some time under that umbrella just watching the world go by.
The resort has every amenity you could ever want, from a large temperature controlled pool to a heated spa, lounge, fully-equipped exercise room, modern laundry facilities, luxury tile and marble bath facilities with private shower rooms, six tennis courts, a basketball court, shuffleboard, miles of paved bike and walking paths, and a dog park. All this and it’s just a short walk or bike ride to the beach! Can you tell I like this place?
Something else I like is food, but you all knew that, right? I’m not a sushi kind of guy, but when I hear about a good Chinese buffet I’m right there. So when I found Vari Asian Seafood & Sushi Buffet on Yelp, I was looking forward to trying it. We arrived a few minutes after 5 on Friday afternoon and there were only two other customers, never a good sign. But we decided to give it a try anyway and were very glad we did. The hot and sour soup was very tasty, the fried rice was excellent, and everything else on the buffet table was very good. Service was fast and friendly. It’s well worth a return trip.
