First, would like to say this staff here gets it right, I liked how we were able to check in upon arrival and not 3 hours late like what happened at our last visit at Marriott Oceanwatch in Myrtle beach. The ability to get in on time and early was huge after a long drive in. Next, the engineering and... More

The property / amenities / units are everything you would expect from a Marriott Vacation Club property, but we are pretty disappointed with the WiFi. First property we've been to where we couldn't use our AppleTV at night. The WiFi is just terrible. Also the first property we've been to where the movies at the front desk were $5 /... More

Our family just returned from our week long beach vacation at Grande Ocean. This was our 3rd visit to Hilton Head and this resort was our favorite. We previously stayed at the Heritage and Monarch both which were also very nice. We own in Aruba and I actually wish we had purchased here. Check in was simple with our villa... More

Large rooms, phenomenal activities, beautiful fitness center, and sweet swimming pools define this beautiful resort. My family usually stays at Marriott's Monarch, which works well when you have 2 little kids and 2 adults. However, with 10 of us and 3 separate families, the Grande Ocean had an ideal setup. There are 2 bedrooms in each unit. There is one... More

We have been owners here for many years and always look forward to returning. This year was different with the absence of Pool Bar Jim. The grounds are still beautiful. Some wonderful improvements around the south pool area. Many new activities are available. Staff once again was helpful and attentive.

Room is well appointed, but found some flaws. Dishwasher opens in front of the stove, so you can't use both simultaneously. Non-master bathroom poorly lit. No ice maker in fridge, ice machines only available in certain buildings, not all. Pans in kitchen not large enough. Cleaning folks less than motivated However, beach is fantastic, and pools are good. Activities good... More
