“Best Marriott Timeshare”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

We have stayed at 6 different Marriott Vacation Club Villas. We own in Lake Tahoe and Newport Beach. This property had the best villa, room amd view of any we have used. We were oceanfront and the beach is about 50 yards over a dune from the front of the building. The activities in March worked for us, with Yoga and Zumba classes and the concierge getting me a discount on a couple of golf courses. The weather was chilly about 50 but we still had a wonderful time.

Room Tip: Try to get oceanfront. They are all good.

Perfect family vacation. Total relaxation. Our kids (2 and 5) loved the tree-house and other activities. Only two things were bothersome: Non kid-friendly furniture in the condo. Healthy restaurants hard to find, especially breakfast and lunch.

We had a corner 2 bedroom 2 bath villa on the ocean front side of the Conch building and it was fabulous!!! Couldn't get any better than this.

Jen at the front desk was very helpful, especially when we checked in and our refrig didn't work and it had to be replaced. They were timely and they were pleasant in doing their job. We were without internet service for about five hours one day and they were very apologetic and compensated us for this lack of service.

My husband and I took a long walk along the beach and it was a gorgeous beach on which to take a stroll. We also did some of the activities, such as the water aerobics. The instructor was not very energetic or enthusiastic, but the workout was good. Ruth's Chris Steakhouse is a very short drive and we definitely recommend it while staying here.

The beds are the Marriott beds that we LOVE - at all Marriotts. Fabulous stay.

We look forward to another visit here in the future! Love the Marriott timeshares. (We traded one of our villas on the Big Island of Hawaii to stay here for the week.)

One of the most friendly hotels I have stayed at. The desk personnel were friendly and accommodating. The rooms were spacious, clean and well kept. We were on the 14th floor with a side view of the beach. The room a a refrigerator and microwave. Swimming pool and hot tub. The lobby area had a nice sitting area and great decor.

Spend a few days with family and friends at this lovely Marriott. Definitely worth a stay. Weather was chilly but the hot tub and all outdoor pools are heated. All new direct digital TV has been added.

From the moment we arrived til we checked out we were given superior service with lots of smiles! Everyone was helpful and friendly. I asked if we could be re-located from a garden view to an ocean view and we were accomodated. We had a 2 bed/2 bath unit on the corner and it was spacious and well equiped. During our week stay we cooked in alot with our friends and had everything we needed. Twice we called maintenance, once to fix the icemaker and once to stop a running toilet and they came so quickly we were shocked. They fixed our problem and were on their way super fast. The resort activities were varied and lots of fun though we were gone alot playing golf during the days. We were never bothered to go to any timeshare presentation at all, again I was surprised. This resort is located in a beautiful and safe area. We enjoyed the fitness area and the steam room. The outdoor pools are all heated. It was very clean and well keep. I will definitely go here again!

Room Tip: Any ocean front room will be nice. I will say that they were just beginning to start working on a ho...

We traded our timeshare into this resort . I had requested the building closest to the ocean due to mobility issues. I was so pleased with the reception person who did honor my request and our 2 bedroom spacious unit was well equipped, spacious, clean and well decorated. The unit overlooked the very inviting pool and snack bar. There was live music at least one day right beneath our spacious balcony and it was wonderful. We were there during Halloween and did participate in the dress up contest. Large parking garage was located beneath the building. We also attended a wine tasting they had and the men attended a beer tasting event. Everyone was very pleasant. King size bed in master, 2 queens in 2nd bedroom. Wonderful beds as usual with Marriott. Nice tv's in living room and each of the bedrooms. The only downside (through no fault of the Marriott) was the weather was damp and cold almost the entire week. We would definitely return here again and again. Wonderful resort. No problems with wifi or cell phones. We went into Myrtle Beach proper and rode the giant ferris wheel there....oh my, what a view!!!
