“A great property right on the beach”
Reviewed 10 November 2013

This is much more than a hotel. It is a resort with 2 bedroom villas. Tonight we had a wine and cheese party and met some very nice people there. We love the location, the powdery beach, the activities etc. A nice place for couples, friends or families,

Just returned from the Mariott Monarch in Sea Pines Nov. 2 - Nov. 9 and had a fantastic time! The front desk staff: Nicole, James and Manager Drake made sure we were happy with our Villa and everything else. The Villa's are always so clean and comfortable. The property is immaculate and there is always an activity going on. We are always spoken to when on the property and treated with such respect. It was very quiet and the construction going on next door did not bother us at all.The Monarch is in such a great location within walking distance or bicycle riding to everything. The only thing negative I have to say is that the new living room furniture is awful. The sofa is paper thin so when you sit on it you feel like you are sitting on boards. Why did they get rid of the coffee tables and have 2 little stool tables. The chair was not comfortable either. I am looking so foward to going back next year!!!

Wonderful Marriott property. We has a 2 bed room garden view. The room was spacious and everything you expect from Marriott. Rooms were recently renovated and they show nicely. It is on the small side, but that is not a bad thing. It has a more intimate feel and easier to navigate.

There are two pools, a splash area, and three hot tubs. The lap pool is heated and comfortable in 60 degree weather. Beach access was simple and quick. There is a gas fire pit which is lit each night. Shuffleboard court is set up well, and they have cornhole boards to play on as well. They also have ping pong, pool table, and foosball to play.

We rented bikes on property and loved the bike trails all through Sea Pines. Nothing is further than 2 miles and it is an easy ride. They are rebuilding the reort next door, but we never heard anything with the door closed. And of course golf is right across the street.

We would go back and loved everything about it.

We love Monarch! We have stayed at all of the Marriott time share resorts on Hilton Head as we are owners who have converted to the new Destination Club points program. Monarch is one of our favorite resorts! it is small and does not have some of the amenities of the larger resorts, but all of the units are very close to the beach and it is very laid back, quiet and relaxing. The lack of live music by the pool and all sorts of fun activities for the kids is a plus for us. If you are looking for a relaxing stay at a quiet resort right on the ocean with a nice condo to stay in, this is the place for you.

Although he units are not quite as large and new as some of the other resorts, they are always clean and well maintained and are very nice. If you are staying with Destination Club points the fact that Monarch is cheaper than the other ocean front resorts at Hilton Head more than makes up for the units being a little smaller.

The room was very clean, and nicely decorated. But there was something off about the place. The front desk staff was a bit cold, and it felt like a rental place, not a hotel. I realize these are vacation villas, but I've stayed at these types of Marriott properties before, and we've always been treated like valued hotel guests, not the case here. For instance, there was no ice in our freezer upon check-in, which I get, they'd cleaned it out from the last guests - thank you! I called the front desk to ask where the ice machines were - they didn't have any, but they were willing to SELL me a bag of ice - this, while we were paying $750 a night?!?! Also, coffee in the lobby - that you get yourself, $2 a pop.

My family loves Hilton Head and we try to visit as often as possible. This is the 3rd Marriott we have tried on the island and unfortunately is our least favorite so far. We checked in last Thursday and left on Sunday. I knew that this is Marriott's oldest HHI property and that it has been recently renovated. We were really looking forward to being in Sea Pines and being able to bike to Harbor Town and South Beach. The location is a plus. We never had trouble finding a parking place. Our unit was very nicely done in beautiful colors and was super clean. All the furnishings look new and even the sofa bed was comfortable.

But the lack of any type of restaurant was very noticeable. I figured that if there was no restaurant that the Market would have a good supply of snacks/drinks/food. I was wrong. The Market has just been renovated and looks like a closet. It is small and not stocked well enough. The remote controlled boats in the center courtyard water feature look very inviting. My boys raced out there with quarters to pay for using the boats. They never worked during our entire stay. But there was no sign placed out there to that effect so people just kept losing money trying to get them to work.

While the resort was clean and our beds comfortable the whole place was lacking the resort feel and just felt like a hotel room to us. Not very Marriott feeling at all! It just felt small and dated.

If you have little ones you will want to watch them carefully. The courtyard is basically a giant Koi pond with murky water that has no railing around it. Anyone could easily just walk right into the water.

We are disappointed to read that you did not enjoy your stay at Marriott's Monarch. The resort is not a typical hotel experience and provides guests with many additional amenities, services, activities and luxury villa accommodations. However, while there is no restaurant on site, there are several options wihin walking distance and Harbour Town is a short drive/bike ride. Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us.

Beware CONSTRUCTION noise! In April of 2013, we responded to a special offer with discounted rates at Marriott's Vacation Club resorts. We booked the Monarch at Sea Pines for a stay the first week in Sept. 2013. Now, two weeks out from our scheduled arrival, a notice is posted on the Monarch's website: "Sea Pines Beach Club adjacent to our resort will be undergoing a complete renovation August 2013-June 2014. This will include loud construction noise 7:30am-6:30pm Monday-Saturday." To the best of our knowledge and belief, this notice was just posted. Our time to cancel expires shortly. The construction project is a $10 million overhaul of the Sea Pines Beach Club next door to the Monarch. We have submitted a request to Marriott to be moved to another property (similar room at equal promotional discount). To our dismay, they only offered the best current rate and did not match the percentage of discount that was offered back in April when we made our reservation. BEWARE: check out the status of the nearby construction before booking at the Monarch at Sea Pines through June 2014.
