Marriott did it right again! What a hit! This place was lovely and sprawling--so many buildings and so much to do. We bicycled on the beach, hit the gym, played at the pool and beach and wandered around the grouns to see all the families enjoying everything-- shuffle board, parks, swingsm mini golf, bocce, waterpark ....wow, amazing place for kids....

My wife, son, daughter in law and grandson (1yr old) stayed at the ocean watch in sept. I am happy to say we had the foresight to invest in the Marriott time share. This place is great. We were on the 16th floor of the maple villa. The view was beautiful, the area quiet, the villa superb! The staff are... More

I was to visit Myrtle Beach on business and as a Platinum Marriott member usually choose the full service Marriott when I can. My wife decided to join me and we like the beach and the pool, so we chose this property after reading all of the positive reviews. Don't be fooled by them. The front desk staff is rude... More

I own six weeks of Marriott Ownership, so making an exchange to Myrtle Beach had to be in the cards and it was a wonderful experience.....adjacent to a fabulous Marriott Hotel, and the large two bedroom Villa was extremely spacious, on the 10th floor, Oceanside, but I swear I could see up the beach for at least 50 miles.....I found...

What a magnificent place to stay for a long weekend! The property is spacious, right on the beach, and the staff is top notch. The pool is beautiful complete with a separate hot tub, indoor pool, and water slide for the kids. The lounge chairs with umbrellas are a must for fair skin sun worshippers and the hammocks under the... More

Had a few check in issues but once we were in WOW! Love the 2 bedroom villa and the entire experience. This place is much more uppercrust without feeling stuffy than so many places at Myrtle Beach. There were 3 of us and my 2.5 year old grandson and it was perfect. Classy and more family-oriented (we did not want... More

Marriott's Oceanwatch Villas has become our go to place to stay while in Myrtle Beach. We have always stayed in the Starfish, Conch or Scallop buildings, these are the 3 towers closest to the beach. Although we normally vacation during the Thanksgiving Holiday when it is a little chilly out and can not get in the ocean the resort makes... More

The two bedroom format of these villas makes a perfect family or extended family accommodation. Large private bedrooms with separate bathrooms join in the middle with shared kitchen, dining area, living room and porch/balcony. Perfect combination of privacy and shared spaces. Kitchen allows informal breakfasts and lunch, outside grills are a great gathering place to share ideas and suggestions with... More

great location and all around beautiful hotel. Steps away from the ocean and beach. Stayed with family of varying ages. Everyone loved it. Water slide in the pool area was a great bonus for kids. Would recommend.
