Marriotts always impress me and this resort is top notch! We got an ocean front villa Starfish Building Floor 8) with comfy beds and lots of space. We were here to attend an encore timeshare presentation and they weren't too pushy in trying to talk us into buying into the Vacation Club. We didn't buy but we plan to in... More

We had another great stay at the Oceanwatch this year. There was hardly a line to check in and our room was ready once we got there. The rooms were all very nice and clean. The price is a little high but it is still a great place to stay right on the beach. I would highly recommend this place... More

A few years ago, we bought a condo at the Marriott OceanWatch and have loved it over since. Such a nice area for my kids to swim and they love the kids only activities. My husband and I love the bar near the pool and the area our condo is in. Very nice location by the beach and far enough... More

The beach is beautiful, sandy with a little bit of surf to keep kids entertained, but not too much to be worried about severe undertow. The resort does not provide any beach chairs, these are owned and maintained by the town. You can rent beach umbrellas and chairs from the lifeguards and charge to your room, or bring your own...

My family of four stayed at the property for one night in early August -- which I'm guessing is high season at the Villas. We do not have a "time-share" and were utilizing the property as though it was a hotel. Note that at the rate of $700 +tax per night for a 2BR suite it was expensive by most... More

Having stayed at the Marriott next door for a couple years we already knew this was the perfect location for us. It's beautifully landscaped, away from the crazy downtown Myrtle area, but so close to great restaurants and attractions. Groceries and CVS are just a minute away too. The rooms are beautifully furnished, two comfortable bedrooms and nice sized bathrooms.... More

Beach is beautiful, pools are big and clean. All pools are slightly different so you can find your perfect spot with or without kids. Our two bedroom villa had an amazing view BUT the space was cramped, the kitchen poorly stocked in terms of cooking gadgets (measuring cups and spoons). The balcony only had 4 chairs yet the unit sleeps... More

Stayed here June 8th-14th. Let me just say this place is beautiful!! We stayed in a two-bedroom condo. There was plenty of room for me, my boyfriend & my two kids (ages 9 & 13). We honestly could have fit at least 4 more people, without a problem! This place was just gorgeous & the kitchen had everything we needed... More

We are owners at this timeshare property and returned for our 7th summer in a row. We continue to enjoy this property year to year and look forward to our annual visits. The staff were very friendly as always and we recognize quite a few from years past. Always nice to see familiar faces = people happy with their job.... More

As a Legacy owner we choose to vacation at this resort every year. Overall I have thought our experience outstanding, with the exception of last year in the midst of changing management practices. I was pleased to see that things have righted themselves and the resort has resumed a state of excellence. Staff are extremely sociable, accomidating and polite. The... More
