“Marriott always the best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

Great facility, all the best. As well I found good biking and walking from the property. Everything is at hand, beach walking, pool, spa and such. Very nice. Grand Dunes Boulevard is good walking and biking, leading to a terrific grocery and bakery. Also, at the end is a trail head for more biking.

Wonderful resort, love all the beautiful heated pools, oceanfront location. Villas/resort are Top-notch... as I've come to expect from the Marriott Vacation resorts I've visited. This is our second time here in the off season, the weather is warm and since it's November.....sparsely populated. All of the villas are two bedrooms, so we had a huge area to ourselves. Many restaurants to choose and the best...no crowds or reservations needed. Marriott does an outstanding job catering to everyone..there are children's activities, social get-togethers, tours...and the facilities are top of the line.

Stayed during the last of October when MB is not that busy. Check-in was smooth and desk personnel were friendly and helpful. Hotel is located in the middle of the main attractions and super restaurants are close by. Stayed in a remote building (9) that was next to the indoor pool and gym. Rooms were large and everything was modern and clean. Easy to get around and golf-cart service was available if needed to get around. Used the on-site Express Pizza Hut one day and food was good. It was too cold to use the outside pool and jacuzzi's but they looked to be large and the layout was very nice.

Room Tip: Liked the remote building. Parking was by the door and close to indoor pool.

The resort is in the middle of north and south myrtle, great for all restaurants and shopping. Close to the shows. It has many pools and really great employees. This resort also has time share condo,s on the property. Easy acces to the beach

Room Tip: It is great if you can get a ocen view room and the higher floors

My family was here in an oceanfront villa for Thanksgiving Week and spent a lot of time in the very nice pools (one with slide, another with waterfall). Outdoor pools are heated, but still feel cold when exiting in the off-season. If you plan to use the indoor pool, fitness center, or playground a lot, you may prefer the Woodsy (non-waterfront) towers because they are closer to those activities. Location in Myrtle Beach is outstanding, between the restaurants and shopping to the north and the family activities to the south. A few nitpicks: My family was not a fan of the flat feather pillows, but your tastes may vary. And the parking in the small garage during a busy holiday week was a bit of a pain because the garage elevator is not near the tower elevators. But overall, we look forward to visiting again.

We spent Thanksgiving weekend 2012 on the 15th floor of one of the towers at the Marriott's Grand Dunes; it was awesome. The four swimming pools are heated to 85 degrees year round. The water slide (in the pools between the towers) is a lot of fun, and we all enjoyed the bar at the main pool. There is a Pizza Hut and Starbucks under the main building as well.
Out front, on the beach, tide pools form (low tide) and the kids were able to find small crabs and little fish. One of my favorite things about the two bedrooms, two bath condo was the television selection. The three TVs all were in HD and we got tons of premium and sports channels. Okay, so I was there with the family, but the TV options made the late nights a bit better for all. This is our new spot in Myrtle and well worth the cost.

Room Tip: Get a room with an ocean view on floor 10 or above.

We stayed at the Marriott's Oceanwatch Villas at Grande Dunes for Thanksgiving week, 2012. The resort was beautiful, the rooms were immaculate. Although it was a busy holiday week, the staff couldn't have been more accomodating and helpful. Because we are Marriott owners, we had an ocean front room in the Conch tower. The sun rises were breathtaking and the view couldn't have been better.

The kitchen was well-equiped and the beds were the typical very comfortable Marriott beds. We will visit this resort again!

Room Tip: If you have an ocean front room, ask for a room above the second floor for the best view.
