Marriott's SurfWatch
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 October 2013

We are staying in building 5500 and the view is awesome. We hear the surf at night through our open balcony door. The resort is very conveniently located to golf, restaurants and the outlet mall. Our favorite places to eat so far are Crazy Crab, Ella's Grill, and the Skull Creek Boathouse. The two bedroom villas are very large and every building is close to a pool and the beach. Bikes are available for rent by the day or the week. Riding on the beach is fantastic as is walking up and down the beach. Bring your fishing pole if you like to fish as the resort has a pond with catch and release fishing as well as the ocean fishing from the beach. The bar down by the beach is a great place for a meal and drinks while you watch the people or the wildlife,sometimes they are one and the same. Great place for a family vacation.

Room Tip: All of them are very good places to stay. The closer to the beach boardwalk the better.

Marriott Surfwatch is one of the BEST properties in Hilton Head. Friendly, attentive service!! The complex is kept up beautifully! They offer many activities for all family members. Surfwatch is on the beach and located the center of the Island so it is easy to get to both ends of the Island for shopping and restaurants.

SurfWatch is another outstanding property in Hilton Head. The positives are: location, staff, impeccable service, cleanliness, and great amenities. On the downside which is minimal - beach access requires a short walk and limited on-site food choices. This is a wonderful place - you will not be disappointed.

Drove down from Greenville, SC for a quick 1 night stay. Arrived at 10:45AM and a room was ready (we did not expect this and, initially the clerk said the pre-programed response of ....can I get a contact number) and we were placed in the Ocean Marsh building (5122) adjacent to the main pool.

This trip was to just enjoy a last getaway in pool / beach weather before winter sets in. The room was beautiful but, as we planned, very little time was actually spent in the room. The total for our 2 bedroom was $290. The fact that we enjoyed the resort from 10:40AM on Saturday until leaving the resort at 5:30PM on Sunday lessens the impact of the price. I will not go into the drama of the resort.....yes, the resort is beachfront adjacent but there is a very short walk involved to reach the beach area.

The resort is typical Marriott which is a good thing. The activities we enjoyed over our 2 day, 1 night stay were: walking on the beach, the beach front pool, the main pool (this was our base for the 2 days), playing--billiards, horseshoes, basketball, ping pong, fooseball, and cornhole. We spent time in the over-sized hot tub located at the main pool. We utilized the large 6 hole putting green to play 'putt-putt'. Worked great. We grilled hot dogs on Sunday utilizing one of the
awesome grills that our scattered around the property. We even heated our chili on the grill. We had planned ahead bringing the supplies with us. It was very painless and, as we all know, grilled food is great. On Saturday night, we watched an in-room showing of the Marvel movie 'The Avengers' that Marriott provided by running it through their lobby personnel. We had all seen it but the 3 boys thought it was very cool to see it again.

Our king size bed was so very comfortable. The 3 boys enjoyed the 2 queen beds. Seemed kind of odd not having to use the sleeper in the family room. The sectional sofa was great for watching the movie. The over-sized shower with the extra nozzles is a blast. We got a late check-out to the magic time of 11:00AM that allowed us to take our time before we spent the rest of Sunday out at the pools and beach.

We had a great stay. Our total stay was all of 30 hours but we had a blast.

This place gets a no holds barred fantastic review from me. First the staff: Oh my goodness, could they be more kind and thoughtful? It is not an easy task catering to six divas, but this staff nailed it. Rosa at the front desk is a saint. She was sweet EVERY time I spoke to her, she never seemed stressed or short, she was patient and friendly at every turn. Then our Cabana "Girl", she was a sweetie. Her name is Beth and she can tell you stories of waiting hand and foot on six ladies with big personalities. She never lost her composure, her cool and at one point we shared a belly laugh at a certain situation. She's the best!! And so cute I wanted to take her home with me. Alas, I am out of sons for her to marry.

We rented a three bedroom villa and the Marriott properties clearly understand the meaning of the word "villa". It was wonderful. From the ocean view to the beautifully appointed bedrooms and bathrooms. Ask about the "party shower". Yes, you could possibly have a party in there. The place was neat, spotlessly clean and the beds were comfortable with towels aplenty in our bathrooms. Lots of hair washing after the pool and the beach (and an impromptu dive in the pool at midnight with our clothes on) and we still never ran out of towels.

The kitchen has everything you can want, we had a full wine tasting session there.

We noticed families everywhere and saw the list of activities for children so this is a very family friendly place. You have to go. It's great. I want to take the grandchildren back there next summer.

Room Tip: We stayed in 5611. Great Villa!

Great place to stay on Hilton Head. Staff is great! Little far from the beach, but the golf cart shuttle makes it easier! Lots to do! The events are very diverse! From music by the beach during the day to roasting marshmallows by the fire at night! Very quiet, but I mean that in a good way!! Enjoy!!

There are many resorts on HHI; there are many Marriotts, also. Full disclosure...we have three timeshares at SurfWatch. But I also rented for a business trip. It is without a doubt the most beautiful of their resorts on the island. The staff is extremely responsive to any problem that might crop up and they provide lots of family activities. The "villas" are well equipped and spacious. If one can do with two bedrooms, rent the ocean view. Exquisite views from the balcony over the marsh to the ocean front pool and bar/grill/beach/cabanas. A fleet of brown (I think) pelicans might fly right past you on the balcony.

Room Tip: Ocean view, the building closest to the marsh. All balconies have the view!
