RCI Awards “Gold Crown” to Properties Based on Top-Tier Assessments

Four premium Hilton Head Island resorts—Coral Reef Resort, Coral Sands Resort, Island Links Resort and Port O’Call—collectively referred to as the Coral Resorts family of properties, have received the “Gold Crown” award from RCI, the largest vacation timeshare exchange-network in the world.

As the highest designation presented by RCI, the Gold Crown award is based upon a 12-month compilation of guest assessments. The Coral Resorts properties exceeded Gold Crown qualifications in every category that the guest survey tracks, maintaining high levels of excellence in resort accommodations, hospitality and member experience ratings. This marks the 12th consecutive year the Coral Resorts family of properties has received this prestigious distinction.

“For our properties – and our people — to be recognized by RCI as ‘Gold Crown’ means a lot,” stated Dean Pierce, president of the Coral Resorts family of properties. “Every day, we strive to be best-in-class, so it’s very gratifying when the leading vacation- exchange network in the world honors our work. I applaud the entire Coral Resorts team’s efforts.”

The Coral Resorts family of properties has received RCI’s highest rating every year since the rating system was developed, and has served more than 30,000 satisfied customers since developing the brand’s first resort more than 25 years ago.
