We just spent Thanksgiving week at Marriott's Grande Ocean. Nice villas, very clean with all the amenities. We traded a week in Marriot's Ocean Watch in MB. Nice property. Not as many activities as other Marriott properties. Villa descriptions can be deceiving since our "close to the beech" was in the building furthest from the beach. This was our second visit and will likely try the Surf Watch next time. Pool Bar Jim's is a must for a drink. Fresh fruits and expansive drink list. Worth the stay for. Other staff were less helpfully and polite than we experienced at other Marriott properties. Great location near Sea Pines and you get a free pass. Bike rental is on property.
