great location and all around beautiful hotel. Steps away from the ocean and beach. Stayed with family of varying ages. Everyone loved it. Water slide in the pool area was a great bonus for kids. Would recommend.

I stayed at the Maple Villa at the Marriott's OceanWatch Villas in August 2014. The resort is almost perfect and has everything you need to make your vacation what you want it to be. The rooms are the perfect size for a small family and it's really nice having separate bedrooms and a kitchen available. We used the kitchen a... More

I just returned from my first visit to myrtle beach with my two boys aged 6 and 9. We booked through vacation candy at the last minute and stayed at the Marriott OceanWatch Villas in an ocean view 2 bedroom condo. The resort is immaculate with a zero entry pool and water slide in the woodsy area that was perfect... More

But we didn't want to leave. Arrived on Wednesday for a 4 day 3 night stay and from the reception desk to the end the staff was extremely polite and helpful. Our favorites were Shaun in the 82nd restaurant and the omelette/waffle dude. The room was a great 2 bedroom 2 bath unit with a view of the sea. We... More

Myrtle Beach is by no means Aruba, but the property is almost up to the same quality as the Surf Club in Aruba. The big difference is the two is that Aruba has a "lock out" while it appears that most, if not all, of the properties at the Vilas at Grand Dunes are two bedrooms (which makes the second... More

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
