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

We have stayed here at Marriott's OceanWatch Villas at Grande Dunes several times this summer and have nothing but GREAT things to say. The resort is beautiful, the rooms are very nicely furnish, free wi-first and great and friendly staff. Everything a resort should be. The staff here, especially Kelly, went out of their way to assist us with a... More

there is plenty to do or not to do; views are spectacular. We have stayed here twice and consider it a go-to place to stay. The only drawback I can think of is that it is not very close to restaurants but there is a small shopping center that is only about a 5-7 minute drive. If you like it... More

We made our second visit to the Oceanwatch Villas at Grande Dunes in Myrtle Beach the week of July 21, 2014. This time we used our Destination Points to acquire three villas for our extended family. This is a VERY family oriented hotel - which is what we were looking for. We had four college-aged kids with us and a... More

We look forward to seeing the same families who share our vacation weeks and everybody remembers everyone's children and look forward... More

We flew into Charleston, rented a car and drove up to Myrtle (close to 2 hours) directly to the Villas. Our check in lasted about 30-45 minutes. Our room was in one of the back building so our view was a bit obstructed by the main hotel but was still amazing. A two bedroom was perfect for us as we... More

Gorgeous property with clean and comfortable rooms and wonderful restaurant. Food was delicious. The staff went out of their way to make our stay memorable and had relaxing atmosphere around the entire property. The weather was perfect which made the stay even more special because we were not sure what it would be like this time of year. A definite... More

Our family of six stayed in a 2 bedroom, 2 bath unit and while the weather was not ideal, we enjoyed the indoor pool and activities. We also took walks on the beach and collected sea she'll. While the myrtle beach area is not our cup of tea, we will be back as this resort is nicer and quieter than... More

The total experience was pleasant. Especially nice were the activities available for kids from the different pools, ease of beach access and use and movie nights. The only draw back was the food offered at the different pool areas...it lacked vegetarian options or simple healthy, hydrating options like fruit. Next time I will just make PB&J. Overall, all staff was... More

Beautiful property with lots to do. You never have to leave the place. Everything you need is there. Rooms need to be updated but the plans are there for that to happen. Like the no smoking policy. New equipment storage bins and sand wash off area works great. Woodsie pool area is wonderful for kids of all ages.
