This was a wonderful place to stay in Myrtle Beach. First of all we were blessed with a fabulous newly refurbished, oceanfront villa. Our view from our balcony was of the ocean, hot tubs and pool. I was happy just to be in the villa -- and that was important since the February/March weather was not great - cloudy, drizzly... More

Been a time share owner a long time, and don't think I've had a nicer exchange than this. The service was better here than anywhere I have been. This may be what Marriott does best, train its hospitality people well. Every tiny problem we had was resolved very quickly, pleasantly and professionally. We were in Maple, which had a broken...

This was our first visit to Myrtle Beach. The staff when we checked in was wonderful. We prefer to travel in the off season due to less crowds. This location was wonderful, the view from our condo was amazing! The nightly activities were great, the gym was well appointed and comfortable.

Writing this review is probably a moot point because Marriott's OceanWatch Villas are a timeshare resort and you probably cannot rent a villa in the high season because it is a highly desirable property. I went in February when it was nice weather for a few days. It is a beautiful property set behind a Marriott hotel and another big... More

Stayed here over Valentine's Day weekend for a family get together in Myrtle Beach. We had a room on the 4th floor of the "Pine" building. This room had not gone through the properties on-going remodel. None the less, the suite was very nice. It was well maintained and clean. My only problem with the suite was the lack of... More

This was my second visit with a friend to rest and shop. Last year in February everything about the resort was perfect. Unfortunately this year, though the staff was wonderful, the resort was not as good. 1. It was very cold weather - not their fault. 2. Thermostats had very little adjustment allowed so too hot in night, freezing in... More

Thank you for the feedback on your recent getaway with friends to Marriott's OceanWatch Villas! We are glad you found the service from associates wonderful. It is disappointing to hear both noise and villa maintenance concerns prevented this visit from exceeding expectations. Your comments have been shared with the leadership of the resort and we thank you for your input.... More

Stayed here recently and was very impressed with the rooms and facilities. We had a two bedroom villa which looked very new and was great for staying mulitple days with family. The grounds had a ton of stuff to do: mini golf, slides, jungle gym, pools (too cold for swimming during my trip). The location is good with ocean views... More

Forget for a moment the beautiful newly-renovated facility. Forget the spacious suite,with large full kitchen, washer and dryer, three televisions, comfortable living room and great balcony. Forget the free parking. Forget the ample ammenities and of course the oceanfront location. What makes this a wonderful place to stay is the staff! They made us feel welcome and were quite helpful.... More

This is a beautiful resort hotel. We went there to celebrate my birthday, but could only stay one night. We had a 2 bedroom villa and had plenty of space for the 3 of us! Great ocean view, comfortable bed, nice furnishings. Can't wait to go back.

We were warmly welcomed by the staff upon our arrival. The luxurious suite had lots of space and a spectacular partial view of the beach. The large master bedroom had a Jacuzzi as well as an adjacent separate shower (Be forewarned that the shower has a translucent window--a showering guest can be seen, if not clearly). The guest bedroom was... More
