We took our family vacation here, our kids are ages 11 and 9 and we loved it! There are many pools to choose from. The property is in great shape and fully updated. Service is fantastic! The beach is beautiful. My only complaint is the chair rental, why the extra charge? You also have to reserve your chairs extremely early.... More

We stayed in the villas which do not have an ocean view and is a bit of a walk to the beach. The villas are nice but they do not have maid service at all during our 7 day stay! They do have a balcony where we would have our breakfast in the morning, that was nice. The staff were... More

This hotel is right on the beach and has gorgeous pools along with some other very nice facilities. There are a great deal of chaise lounge chairs and hammocks, a private beach, kid's pool, outdoor ping pong, basketball, etc. The service is excellent. When you come inside to the guest rooms you'll find a typical Marriott room (nothing special there).... More

I arrived at Oceanwatch yesterday for my purchased week. It's been downhill since I arrived. There is no management oversight here. My Villa 3052 is in disrepair. The AC, washer, dryer and garbage disposal don't work properly. There is dried food on the dishes and knives. The drawers in the master bedroom don't open easily. The staff are rude and... More

Second time we've stayed and both times have really enjoyed it. Villas are nice sized, with a balcony. There are two large pools, many jacuzzis and the best part is it's right on the beach! All staff is extremely helpful and very customer oriented.

This is our 2nd time at this resort. We brought family and friends with us to celebrate our anniversary. We all had a great time at the pools. Went to Broadway at the Beach, Pirates Adventure, and of course mini golf. The villa was spacious and perfect for our group. We would like to plan our next trip here as... More

We went to the villas for a 6 days and had a great time in a two bedroom villa. We brought the grandkids and children with us and with all the pools, beach, and activities we really did not lack of things to do. They even have grills that are gas fired, nothing to mess with. The inside pool was... More

The gym was nice, pools everywhere, hot tubs, kids playground with water slide, several grills, rooms fully stocked with kitchen utensils and dishes, washer and dryer in each unit, pool towels, corn hole, shuffleboard, pool table, mini golf, super clean rooms, and excellent staff.
