We've been coming to Grande Ocean for over 15 years, usually every second year. I own at another Marriott so this is always an exchange. We always enjoy the bike riding, the proximity to the Sea Pines plantation and the location on the island in relation to everything else we want to do. HOWEVER, the villas are starting to show use. They are still pretty clean (found a sock under a bed that wasn't ours) and well appointed. Like another review, I noticed that the showers did not completely drain. I heard coins dropping on the tile in the floor above but all in all an enjoyable vacation. I just can't give a 5 anymore.
