We came down from Wilmington to see a show and just get away for a weekend, and this resort did not disappoint. I have stayed at other international Marriott Resort locations with friends through their Interval time share exchange program, and this particular resort held up when compared to my previous experiences. Kayla checked us in and went out of... More

I stay here once a year in September or May. This is a great place to stay for a week or more. The two bedroom condos have plenty of room for family and friends. The room is stocked with everything you need in the kitchen to cook on your vacation. The out areas are great and well maintained. I love... More

I stayed at Marriott's vacation club in St. Thomas in 2013. I like to stay 5 star hotels such as Ritz, Mandarin, etc. but decided to try the vacation club simply the property offered two- bedroom suite for reasonable price. It was a nice surprise, so I decided to try one in Myrtle Beach. I was pretty excited due to... More

we spent a week here in a two bedroom two bath condo on the 7th floor. Well appointed rooms, nice decor, no bad smells, nice veranda off living room. Very comfortable, clean and surprisingly quiet. Short walk to beach, centrally located for golf, restaurants and attractions. I would recommend it!

We have stayed here 2 times and this being our third time with extended family was awesome. Eventhough this is their off season, the property on Thanksgiving weekend was at 96% occupancy. Beforehand, we had requested a highchair and pack n play which was waiting for us as we arrived at our room. Excellent proactive customer service is all I... More

We have spent the past several years' Thanksgiving weeks at this Marriott Vacation Club with our Grandkids and their family. The property is really the complete family package for both adults and children. It is located strategically North of Myrtle Beach proper near shopping, entertainment, and dining venues. It has multiple heated pools so it really doesn't matter what the... More

Stayed here with family. Had an Ocean view. Excellent appointed room. Only negative was the parking. Just easy to get turned around and if you come in late you end up parking in a garage that is a bit of a walk from the main building. Lots to do. Wife enjoyed the pool options. Just there for three 1/2 days... More

This resort has everything you could need or want while on vacation. The villas are large and very nicely appointed. The location is perfect-right on the ocean. We own an ocean side villa which affords us a view of the ocean as well as the pool. There are plenty of daily activities for adults and children, or just spend time... More

We stayed three nights in an ocean front two bedroom two bath unit. Room had everything we needed and was very clean. Staff was extremely friendly. Everyone greeted you with a smile and said hello. Pools were nice and most were heated. The only negative was extremely poor wifi service. I would definitely stay again.

Units are very nicely appointed. Great having a washer/dryer in unit. My third time staying here. Always in a back building with no view of beach. They save front building for owners or for renters. Wish they had worried less about the appearance and more about sound proofing the units. I asked for an end unit and explained that I... More
