We enjoyed our week in Myrtle Beach at this beautiful resort. We had a 2-bedroom unit and shared it with our son, daughter-in-law and 1 year old granddaughter. The units were a bit smaller than we are used to, but we were able to make everything fit. The units had been remodeled and were in good shape. The pool areas... More

Our last stay in MB had not been a positive experience. So, we were a bit apprehensive about our week. That changed the minute we walked into the Marriott reception area. The staff were friendly, cheerful and professional. That type attitude continued throughout our stay. We had requested the higher floor and I'm glad we did. Unfortunately, it rained most... More

We stayed at Oceanwatch last year and were happy to exchange into this resort again this year via Interval International. We stayed in the Maple Building this year on the 14th Floor and loved the view. Last year we stayed in Starfish and it was nice to be near the main pool to save chairs, but this year chair saving...

We are still here, but already this is the nicest marriott property we have stayed at. Our villa is very well equipped and spacious. This resort is right on the beach, and has several pools which are adequately heated. The front desk and entire staff are as nice as they can be. We will be back!

My family and I have been coming to MB for many years. We have stayed in many resorts and hotels and this is our favorite place to stay. The view and beach is great and the property is a terrific family resort. The staff is always attentive and help in every way. We appreciate each person. The villas have changed... More

Spent the week at this resort. It was wonderful. The units have been renovated and are absolutely beautiful. The only thing better than the villa was the fabulous ocean view from our balcony. Angela Livingston, the Pre-Arrival Specialist could not have been nicer and was extremely helpful in planning our trip. Babs, at the front desk, was also very helpful... More

This resort is incredible! It is pristine, very tastefully decorated and on a wonderful stretch of beach. The kitchen and bathrooms are very modern and well stocked with dishes, pots, pans, soaps, shampoo and lotion. The bed and pillows are super comfortable. When we arrived, my husband and I were not very happy with our room location. There was nothing... More

The villa we stayed at the Marriot Ocean Villas was clean, well maintained, and very comfortable. Everything needed for self-catering accommodations was provided – cutlery, dishes, soaps, towels, etc. We have no complaints about the room or the helpfulness of the staff. Plenty of pools to play in, many barbeques, and children’s activities. Downside – we wanted to periodically check... More

Drove down from Chicago. Check-in was a breeze and very pleasant staff answered our questions. Stayed in a 2 bedroom on 4th floor in maple building overlooking the saltwater pool. For spring break week it did not seem overly crowded. Our room was beautiful and as usual the beds at Marriott are always AMAZING! Kitchen was stocked with all the... More

It is a very nice facility with beautiful suites, pools, a beautiful beach, and work-out room. Suites were clean and well maintained but the resort felt cramped and understaffed. Beaches and pools were nice but chairs got "reserved" very early in the morning (no one on them just towels...everywhere) and finding pool chairs even at 10 am was difficult. We... More
