Stayed with wife and three boys, ages 14, 7 & 4. We own a week at St. Thomas & traded for here. The two best things about this place are the water slide at the Woodsy pool & the outstanding views of ocean from balcony in room. Our room was 9th floor Maple building & we could see straight to...

We have been coming here for 10 years. Each time we come we are amazed at how well maintained the grounds are and the villas. The sheets always are crisp and not worn, the amenities in the bathrooms are upgraded this year and although there is little wear and tear, they are renovating the interior. We love this property and... More

One of our organizations had a training at this property and the stay was awesome! The front desk staff was great and parking was easy-they offered self parking as well as valet for $15. I really enjoyed the proximity to the beach as well as the amenities offered. I highly recommend.

This is by far the best place we have stayed in Myrtle Beach by far! A few years back we got a 2 bedroom condo and have loved it ever since! The rooms are updated, well maintained and clean. The balcony's are average, but the room is beautiful. Buildings are close to pools and I don't think there is a... More

Some Myrtle Beach hotels get a bad rap because of the extreme volume at which they operate. As an OceanWatch owner for over 10 years, this is one place that Bucks that trend. We've watched OceanWatch grow from two buildings to what it is today. Staying two weeks per year for most of those years, (we've traded a few for... More

We always have a great time at the villas. We arrived early and our room was ready. The staff are so pleasant and very helpful. The concierge was able to answer all our questions and helped us to plan our week. The on-site activities ( especially for the kids) are great! We love coming back year after year.

It has been two years since we were last here and we were expecting another great family vacation and that is exactly what we got. Our week here was another fun filled vacation.

We are owners at OceanWatch and have been coming for 8 years. The resort is well maintained with a large selection of activities and beautifully situated pools. This year we were delighted to find that Marriott has contracted to offer residents tech support which is excellent. I called to ask about installing our Roku and was immediately connected to tech...

The beach area by the resort is not crowded (in 3rd week of August) which makes it feel more like a private beach. It is also located a short walk from a preserved area where there are a lot of trees and a river stream meets the ocean. On my sunrise walks, I was literally one of the only people... More
