We recently returned from Marriott's Grande Ocean and loved our stay. We stayed in the 2 bdrm villa and found the layout to be perfect for two couples; bedrooms on each end with living space in the middle.This was the nicest Marriott timeshare we have stayed in to date. The full-size washer & dryer was a bonus as most timeshares...

We've stayed at Marriott Vacation properties handful times. Hilton Head several times. First visit here. The Lobby reception/indoor pool didn't seem promising...nothing too special but all very friendly and courteous. The property and villas are outstanding. Absolute best view of any property/hotel yet. Beach views spanning entire front of condo and Master bedroom. Slept with view and sound of ocean/waves...

As a Marriott Timeshare you should already know that the apartments are spacious and beautiful. The beach is magnificent. The sand is kind of packed so taking long walks along the beach is easy as well as interesting. Pets are allowed on the beach in off season, so you get to see all these interesting dogs having a great time...

My husband and I returned yesterday. We spent one week in a spacious and well appointed room. The resort is clean and beautiful. Prior reviews have detailed this nicely. We did not participate in any activities due to a sudden case of bronchitis and poor weather, but they appeared to be very appealing. The front desk and concierge services lacked...

We spent time here in October with friends. This is a great resort right on the ocean. The villa had been recently redone and our friends said this was one of the nicest places like this that they had stayed in. We used the pools, walks on the beaches, bikes and had a great time on Hilton Head. Used the...

We stayed here years ago and this return visit does not disappoint. Our handicap accessible villa (8313) is a completely renovated unit with new, modern furniture, sheer curtains and a kitchen with granite and stainless...all very tastefully done. Beds are sooo comfy. Large en suite Jacuzzi tub...can't wait to use it during this unseasonably chilly week! It's nice to see...

We purchased a time share here before it was built and have never regretted our decision. It is a terrific place for family or couples vacation. All the amenities of home plus the ocean at your doorstep. It is perfectly located- near all activities,restaurants and access on and off island. There are several pools, and hot tubs, plus many activities...

We have stayed at several of the other Marriott properties on Hilton Head, but this one is our favorite. The location is great......close to many restaurants & shops, but far enough away from all to enjoy the tranquility of this resort. The villas are beautifully furnished, well equipped, and always well-cleaned. The availability of a washer/dryer within our villa is...

Our family had a great week-long stay here. Our booking was part of a time share and payed extra for the high-end rooms. We had a newly remodeled room with modern furnishings, new kitchen appliances, laundry in-suite and a beach front view. It was meticulously cleaned. Bike rentals were great and came with a pass to bike through Sea Pines...

We have recently become owners at this Timeshare Resort and have again visited this fine oceanfront property. The grounds are wonderfully kept and the villas are well equipped and maintained in the Marriott standard. The villas are currently being redecorated and within the next two years they will all have a modern "Beachy" feel. The older decor was a Formal...
