Our family stayed for one week and found that the room, grounds and facilities were in incredible condition. There are many enjoyable activities at the complex and surrounding area. The beach, pools, fitness center and the other complex facilities are well maintained. We would highly recommend this facility to other families looking for a fun filled or relaxing vacation.

My family has stayed at the Grand Dunes two summers in a row. The accommodations are GREAT for families. The rooms are generous and very clean. It was very convenient to have two bathrooms as well as the washer and dryer. I know the price is high, but the pools are fantastic and the location can't be beat. The stretch...

As a long time Platinum Week and Destination Points owner at OceanWatch, I have certain expectations that are routinely met. This year, vacationing in July was no exception. The facilities are always immaculate and well-kept. My wife and I love the reaction of family and friends when we share our beautiful resort. The kids still love it and look forward...

I want to start by saying I have been staying here at the Oceanwatch Villas for the past 9 years with my in-laws. We loved it so much that my husband and I decided to purchase a deeded timeshare week here approximately 2 years ago. Last year we stayed and had no problems. This year, we came down and were...

Let me start off by saying I'm not crazy about the actual ocean, so I really wanted a place with more to do with young kids (2 and 5), than just the actual beach. We came down with family, and they are used to renting a house with a more private beach area, but they were happy to try something...

My primary issue with this place is like many other guests have written already - it is NOT ACCAPTABLE that Marriot can not make sure rooms are clean by 4pm. That is why you are staying at Marriot - so you do not run into issues like this. We were checking in on July 4th, got there at 2pm, got...

It pains me to write this review but as an owner who has 1 year left on timeshare, I think this place has fell off. We've been coming here every other year for about 10 years now and was prepared to move into the points system for owner but upon our arrival I decided against it. Marriott lost me and...

Typical first class Marriott property. Beach is great plenty of room. Need to buy your own chairs, the city of Mrytle Beach charges $40.00 a day for two chairs and umbrella. Plenty of golf to choose from nearby course. Rates much lower in summer. Courses aren't in the best shape to the heat.
