Marriott Brand Vacation Club All you come to expect from the Marriott brand is why we keep coming back. There is NO QUESTION when we are planning some Myrtle Beach time, this is OUR PLACE! I mean the only thing we have not done is buy into the vacation club, but you don’t have to, (but we want to)…but you... More

This is a wonderful destination to take as a vacation or just as a weekend getaway.. Marvelous location, property, amenities, staff and everything else you may think of including great local restaurants, grocery stores, theaters and entertainment venues for people of all ages. The beach was just as wonderful! Did I mention, this is a wonderful destinations!

I was very skeptical about going to myrtle beach..... We reserved a room at this hotel and was very surprised! All the horror stories about that part of the east was all gone. The room was great the people were nice and the room service was spot on! Will be back real soon.

We really were impressed with this hotel. We had a two bedroom two bath unit with ocean view. Everything was clean and neat. Weather was not the best so did not use the beautiful pools. Myrtle Beach has many things to keep you busy.

We celebrated my wife's birthday in March this year at this vacation resort. We had a lot of fun both at the resort and other activities at Myrtle Beach. We had booked the Ocean View villa and the view consisted of the the ocean and the 3 other Marriott buildings in front. There are quite a few activities planned everyday... More

Taking a chance, on the last week in February to get in some golf in Myrtle Beach. The golf gods were not with us. After playing the first day the rest of the week, was cold, wet, and snowy. This gave us plenty of room time. Check in was a breeze, as you may be aware of this property is... More

We recently stayed here as part of a promotional sales gig, so had no expectations. We were pleasantly surprised upon arrival of how nice this resort from start to finish. We stayed in a 2-bedroom condo, ocean front overlooking one of the beautiful pools. It was very well stocked, and modern. There are restaurants, bars, lots of pools, water slides,... More

We go here several times a year but mostly for weekends. We just came back after staying a week and it was not the experience that we expected. When we checked in there was a paper saying no parties in the room. The desk clerk said that was for the spring breakers. So they may have obliged it but they... More

I did not pay for this rental, so I can not attest to the value. I believe most units are time shares. However, I had a fabulous time! It is right on the beach with many pools and hot tubs to choose from. As a budget traveler, I found a lot of great perks at this hotel. It was spring... More

Needed to find a mid point stop between Hilton Head and Richmond VA. Had a lousy first stop in Fayettesville, so on the return, we chose Myrtle Beach and proceeded to look for a 2 bedroom unit. We were a bit put off by the warning on the web site that states there is construction at the property, but the... More
