“Great for families, not so much for couples.”
Reviewed 5 April 2011

Typical of time-share places.........villas show that they're used a lot......little repairs needed here and there. The weather was really lousy while we were there, so could not appreciate all the activities and amenities available, but the pools are all heated and were full of kids. If you want to count on good weather in March, go to Florida!
I liked the location which is in a residential area. So, outside restaurants and shopping were not within walking distance. So, it was away from the tackiness of the rest of MB.

Room Tip: The Marriott senior rate is always less than AAA

Rooms were equipped with everything we needed. Short walk to the beach. Excellent pools and/or hot tubs. Staff was extremely helpful and informative. The highlight was a fully equipped fitness center that included enough equipment that the wait time was kept to a minimum. There were activities for children also. Good location between North and South Myrtle Beach so that proximity to shows, movies, restaurants, and shopping was convenient. My only complaint would be that the bed was a little too hard but that is just personal preference. A truly enjoyable experience that I would be happy to repeat.

We would no doubt stay at this location again. Everything about the stay was marvelous. From check in, to check out it was great!!!!! The children went about on their own. The age range for our children 10-15, each had items that they loved!!!!! More than enough space. Plenty to do on site and locally. Met some wonderful people, it was a perfect spring vacation. We had one night were I was awakened by loud neighbors, but that was only one night and it was spring break. I'm not sure if someone said anything to the staff, but we didn't because the next night all was well. This is a property that we would certainly visit again.

I took a weekend trip to relax from work with family and stayed here. It was awesome, I have nothing negative to say about this property. The staff was amazing and the rooms were very nice. The hotel guests too were wonderful. I will stay here again.

The OceanWatch Villas will not dissappoint! It is a beautiful property with lots of amenities and activities for young children. We stayed in one of the towers in the back of the property and did not have an ocean view, but if you have young kids with you, this is actually a good thing. (if you get a room above the 3rd or 4th floor, then you can probably still see the ocean, even though you are not right on the beach). And it only takes a minute or two to walk down to the beach. The pool area by the towers is sooo great for kids and it is so clean and tidy. The landscaping is top notch, too. The hot tub in this area is actually much nicer too, I think. The treehouse playground is a big hit with the kids as well. I'm very impressed with everything about this place! My favorite place to stay! The villas are beautiful and roomy and the balconies are plenty big. Everything on the property was so clean, and I am a clean freak and not easily impressed! The only thing that was a slight dissappointment was that one or two of the kid's activities that were on the schedule at the resort got canceled for no apparent reason. Not a big deal. Overall, this place is amazing and we will definately look forward to vacationing here again soon!

We stayed one week here at Marriott's OceanWatch Villas and it was fantastic! We had a very large 2 bedroom villa with a beautiful ocean view where we could see the sunrise in the morning! The villa itself was super clean, bedding very comfy, more than enough room for 8 people. The amenities were superb. Pools heated to 85 degrees and more than enough outdoor hottubs. The resort is right on the beach in an upscale residential neighborhood. We took many morning walks around the property and the area around the resort where there were some very beautiful homes!

The staff was friendly and very helpful. A wonderful time was had and we can't wait to go back there.

This is an amazing resort. The staff are so friendly and helpful. They make you feel welcome the second you walk in the door! We had a two bedroom ocean front suite that everything that we could possibly need. Beautiful view, large balcony, spacious rooms, quiet building, luxurious, clean, organized, high end furnishings and finishing touches. We were so pleased with our stay that we are returning their for a 3rd year in a row. We stayed in the off season and very much enjoyed the resort as it wasn't really busy in February.
