Feather allergy and front desk person told us twice they would be replaced with foam- they were not! Can take some notes from the Hilton we stayed at in Wilmington the night before- greeted us at front desk by saying...

Marriott's OceanWatch is one of our favorite vacation spots. We vacation here every year and cannot say enough about this resort. Top notch staff, incredible variety of activities for children and adults. Multiple pools, including an indoor one. Villas are absolutely beautiful; grounds are immaculate. Very clean beach and beautiful sunrises from your balcony! You never have to leave the...

Stayed here over the long Presidents' Day weekend. The resort is pretty similar to all other Marriott vacation clubs. It has your standard amenities, with this property having an indoor pool. Also the pools are heated so you can use them even in less than 70 degree weather. The rooms are a bit smaller than other vacation club properties but...

This was the 4th year running that we have spent a week on this property around the end of January. This year was warmer than others and we had a lovely view looking South down the beach. Hurricane Mathew had done a lot of damage in the area and we understand this location was also damaged, but repairs seemed to...

This resort has large, beautiful, modern, recently renovated rooms. The kitchens are fully stocked. The grounds are immaculate and the property is right on the beach. There are multiple pools and spas. I initially stayed here for the location and views, but I keep coming back because the service is phenomenal. I wouldn't change a thing.

Marriott Vacation Club properties in my experience all meet a high standard for room quality, kitchen provisions (including small salt/pepper and paper towel, which no one else seems to do), staff helpfulness, and Internet included. This is the 4th property I have stayed in. Having said all that, I regard this one as the best of the four I have...

Overall a great experience. We were there for a special occasion and were greeted with Champagne and chocolate covered strawberries, very nice touch. The beds are amazingly comfortable! Great ocean view from the balcony, and although too clod to swim, the pool area looks wonderful. The staff is the best part of the hotel. Very friendly, warm and they took...

Although a bit expensive, the stay in a condo specific style of vacation worked out very well. We had two units in which my son and his family were in one unit and my wife and I in another.

This might be my favorite place that I've ever stayed for my kids. There are in and out door pools, a play ground and the rooms are wonderful. They gave me a fantastic military discount and it was an amazing stay. We actually stayed 2 nights longer than we planned because we love it so much.
