Our family has stayed at a number of different Marriott vacation club properties over the years and this was our first time at Barony Beach Club on Hilton Head Island. We were very impressed with the friendliness of the staff and the quality of the villas and resort accommodations. The beach is beautiful, although it was a bit of a hike from the rear of the property by foot. The outdoor grilling and picnicking areas were outstanding (apparently they were recently redone) as well as the outdoor games. The rear pool with the water slide was a hit with all the kids. Our only disappointment was that there was no playground for younger kids, and the on site marketplace was much smaller than the usual Marriott Marketplace. Overall it was a pleasure to stay here.
