By Hilton Head Island this oceanfront hotel is a bargain. It sits on a good beach and is well staffed. The room we had was very large with a nice ocean view. Hotel staff was friendly and very helpful. I was there on business and the room was great to work in.

We recently stayed for a week at the Grande Ocean and it was better than I remember it from 16 years ago. The units were very clean and well stocked. The grounds were also very well taken care of and really add to the resort atmosphere. I particularly enjoyed that the large pool was heated because even though it was...

we stayed April 2 - 6, 2014 in 8300 building. Room was perfectly clean, fully stocked and super comfortable. Sebra and Yessica @ the front desk were amazing - sent a wine, cheese and chocolate basket to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary and the concierge went WAY above the call of duty to deliver a delicious chocolate cake that...

I have visited many time shares in my day but, this place was amazing. The rooms were spacious and there were activities for the kids daily. The majority of the rooms have been remodeled, and you will not be disappointed. It really did feel like a home away from home. We will are already planning on coming back next year!

I have been to three of Hilton Head's Marriott resorts, and this was definitely the best. The balconies are large, the rooms spacious and the location is the best - right on the ocean. The pool bar has absolutely everything you can think of and more. There are plenty of activities within the resort.

This is one of the best Marriott time share resorts. We were given an ocean front suite, 2 bed rooms, living room, dining room and kitchen for the two of us. Everything was great especially the comfortable king bed.
