Beautiful hotel/condo. We and another couple stayed here for two nights attending a classic car show nearby. This is a beautiful property. The rooms had completely been renovated. So nicely decorated and clean. This property overlooks the beach and is nearby to everything. Lots of nice restaurants nearby. It is called the Golden Mile in Myrtle Beach. Staff was extremely...

We were very cautious 11 years ago about purchasing a time share but this has been the best investment we have ever made! We have also since purchase additional points. I challenge anyone to find a more flexible and upscale brand for the cost!

We only spent a couple days here on the way home from Florida. It was such a nice place we plan to book a week there in 2016. Not only was it beautiful but there was so much to do for both kids and adults. Of course as with all Marriott vacation spots the staff were exceptional

The Villas were very clean and well appointed. Our group enjoyed the peace and quiet of our rooms and the lovely view of the ocean. Unfortunately, the pool areas had far too few chairs for the number of guests at the resort. People were allowed to hold chairs and no one monitored to ensure that they were actually being used....

This resort destination is perfect in every regard. Magnificent beach just steps from your condo. We were in the conch building on the fifth floor ocean front. Very family friendly. Our grandkids loved all of the activities and woodsy pool. We will definitely be back again!

We stayed at Marriott's Ocean Watch villas in early June. The property is beautiful, lots of pools and many activities. The villas themselves are small but clean and well equipped. My problem with this property is what I have been told are the severe restrictions placed on beach use by the city -- presumably for safety reasons but really to... More
