Wyndham Ocean Ridge
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Edisto Beach

Edisto Beach on Edisto Island in South Carolina is a FABULOUS step back in time!!! You begin to relax and recoup the minute you start driving onto the island heading for Edisto Beach!!!! There are NO hotels, much less no tall beach hotels, no hectic traffic, there is no inundation of restaurants and beach shops clamoring for your business!! This is a family beach with literally mostly beach homes and only Wyndham's Ocean Ridge Resort.
Ocean Ridge is a large resort there which offers many different kinds of accommodations and activities to choose from! The units are well kept and up to Wyndham Resort standards which we are always pleased with. Most of the units are not on the beach but are contained within the resort property which is not far from their oceanside cabana. What is awesome about this resort is the location on this island and the MYRIAD of super fun things to do while you are there!!! Our favorite things to do are renting bikes for the week and riding everywhere (very easy and safe), dolphin watching which is possible almost 24/7 from Bay Point, exploring the island (VERY interesting history of island) and touring old plantation sites, kayaking in the bay and in creeks heading towards the ocean, riding down Botany Bay road (has to be one of the most beautiful roads in America), visiting Charleston which is only 30 minutes away, taking picnics out on the sound side and watching the dolphins playing and the breathtaking sunsets, shelling on the beach beside Edisto Beach State Park property. My husband always plays golf; there is free miniature golf and several pools too on the property. There is only one grocery store on the island - how is that for an indication of the lack of commercialism? There are some very good restaurants and fish markets to buy your own fish to cook and enjoy! We are NEVER ready to leave and ALWAYS feel rejuvenated from being there!!!!! We take family there, we take friends there. We sometimes go alone!!!! It is truly WONDERFUL!!!! We have 2 trips planned there in 2012 - one in the fall and one in the spring!!!

Our first trip to Wyndham Ocean Ridge was in 2004 and we had no intentions of hooking up with a time share. After four days at Marsh Point, we were hooked and bought into Fairfield Resorts (now Wyndham). We were finally able to make it back to SC this year and while the units had aged, we only had minor inconveniences that were readily fixed after a call to Guest Services.

We have children and knew they would LOVE the fast paced atmosphere of a "spring break town" but we chose to show them the other side of vacationing and they absolutely fell in love with Edisto Beach! There will be family members visiting Ocean Ridge for many decades to come.

Oh - and in regards to the lighting issues in the late summer/early fall months - the island cannot have any exterior lighting at night because it confuses the hatching loggerhead turtles. We haven't been there for this wonderful event - yet!

Room Tip: Marsh Point has the outdoor year-round pool and is being/has been remodeled.

We stayed here 10/15 thru 10/22. Contrary to other reviews we found this place to be great.Staff was excellent, unit was excellent, like new.Golf was great,restaurants were fine, piggly wiggly has about anything you need and prices reasonable.Good ice cream at Subway. The island is a laid back area, if you want to tour Charleston and its sites you will need about 1&1/2 hrs.to travel there.We suggest at least 1 day there because there is so much to see and do.lots of history.Highly recommend
this place.

Room Tip: Higher up rooms better ask for recently renovated

Resort reviews were mixed so we were a little worried but the room was new and spotlessly clean. We're coming here again! Island is not commercialized so dining choices are limited. Be prepared to cook. Island mottos are don't tell your friends and we're not Myrtle Beach. Be sure to stop by the Edisto Bookstore. Nice to see a successful independent bookstore and it has a small used book section for economical vacation reading.

Room Tip: We liked the Villas which was a smaller complex close to the pool and the marsh.

We reserved here to use a time share exchange week and were a bit apprehensive about the resort after reading prior reviews, so were pleasantly surprised to find ourselves in a very nice unit (#694) in the Villages section of the large resort. Our two bedroom condo was new, very clean and the furnishings were attractive. We had a full kitchen and washer and dryer. The bathroom was spacious with a jacuzzi and oversized walk in shower. We were located right next to one of the resort's 3 pools and an easy drive to beach access. Although the Resort's cabana access to the beach, with restrooms, outdoor showers and lounge chairs, is located a farther distance away from the facility, there is public access to the beach, most with parking, at every block. There is a nice restaurant (Grovers) on the main property. Time share sales pitch was a bit long, but very informative and provided us a good lunch. I would recommend the resort, particularly if you can request one of the Village units.
