Love the convenient location on the beach but away from the crowds. The resort is a typical Marriott Vacation Club property with a great design, landscaping, and beautiful accommodations. We stayed in the "Woodsy Villa's" and the units were very nice. This section has an Indoor pool and fitness center, a "quiet" pool in one corner and a large wandering... More

This is a great property that is superior to the Marriott resort next door. It is quiet, the staff is amazing, and the suites are enormous. Why anyone says to be part of the timeshare is beyond me. You can rent these places in May and September when the weather is great without joining the club.

My recent stay at the Marriott OceanWatch Villas in April was very nice, as always. They had updated the resort and the rooms, which really looked beautiful. The appliances are stainless steel, new dining room, living room and bedroom furnishings. The only complaint is the new mattresses. If you love a very firm mattress, then these are for you. I...

We stayed at the neighboring hotel and visited the villas. The hotel is completely comfortable, clean and beautifully appointed. The area is perfect stretch of beach which more than accommodates guests without overcrowding. Perfect for couples and families alike.

This was our first time to visit Myrtle Beach and Marriott's OceanWatch Villas, and we were mightily impressed. The only "hitch" was the very wet carpet in the living room next to the patio door. Sure, Hurricane Ana literally blew through a couple of days before we arrived, so it's easy to understand how it happened. Just as easily and... More

This was our 4th year there, there is so much to do that each year I don't feel like we have done everything we want by the end of the week (and we only leave the resort once). We always stay in the back building by the adult pool (4021) and it's always quiet and nice, the rooms are tired... More

Our group of 12 to 18 golfers have been coming to Myrtle Beach for about 20 years. We have stayed at four different places over the years and ended coming back home to compass Cove. We have always received excellent service from housekeeping to Jennifer' service and Betty Ann' light touch in the restaurant. The breakfast buffet is second to... More

This resort was the best part of our vacation. There was so much to do between the various pools, fun games around the property, the beach and daily scheduled activities we probably would not have to have ventured off site. For families I recommend the Pines Building. We were right next to the indoor pool, the beautiful pool with a... More

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
