I made a reservation for a 2 bedroom 2 bathrooms unit on July 28th at one night rate $350.00. My scheduled check in is on September 24, 2016 16:00. Our family arrived at the resort around 12:15 p.m on today, September 24th. I informed to the front desk that we arrived earlier than the check in time. The concierge gave... More

Been to a few of the resorts and I like this one the best. Visit was in September so there wasn't any crowding. Pool set up was good and parking was plentiful. We stayed at the non ocean front villa on a high floor and it was perfect for us.

We have been owners at Ocean Watch for several years and vacation here about every other year. We love it. The grounds are beautiful, impeccable, clean, plus a friendly staff. We stayed in the Woodsy area which is "behind" the beachfront buildings. It's very pretty with 2 pools and a jacuzzi and fitness room right there. One pool is called... More

Marriott's Ocean Watch Villas as Grande Dunes is a beautiful resort, right on the beach, between downtown Myrtle Beach and North Myrtle Beach. The views are spectacular and the entire property is gorgeous. There is an indoor pool, the Woodsy Pool (which has some really great things for kids!), the main, large pool near the beach, and another, smaller pool... More

My aunt is an owner here, and she has brought us on vacation with her a few times. The place is pretty much awesome, I guess the only negative thing I can think of is the slide closes early. Otherwise, there are so many details..this resort has many things you never knew you needed! Like showers right as you exit... More

We really enjoyed our stay here. Good location, central and close to everything. The accommodations were very nice and clean - what I would expect from a Marriott owner's program. Great pool and beach. Need to get down to the pool early to get your chairs, unless you want to be at the beach. Lots of activities for all ages.... More
