My family always enjoys staying here for so many reasons. First, it is secluded and far away from the hustle and bustle of car and foot traffic. It is actually in an area of private residences and a golf course - no other hotels or high rise condos. Next, It offers 5-6 pools, each with a unique atmosphere to attract... More

Love the Marriott ocean watch villas. Best accommodations if traveling with those that don't love the beach. Pools, basketball, volleyball and lots of other things to do on property besides the beach. I spend my day at the beach and the rest of group entertain themselves else where. I love it! Just FYI bring you own beach chairs. Otherwise it's... More

My family and I always look forward to our annual visit to OceanWatch and despite coming for about a decade, every year offers excitement, new experiences, and great memories. I can always count on the quality being top notch and the facilities being kept in immaculate condition. This year, we were joined for a few days by my mother-in-law so... More

Daughter had dance nationals in Myrtle Beach. We needed two rooms and didn't want to stay on the strip downtown due to people and congestion. We found VacationCandy some how and never used them before. The were awesome through the process of booking the room and couldn't be happier, no hidden fees or charges very professional. The resort has EVERYTHING... More

I have stayed at the Marriott OceanWatch several times over the past several years. This resort boasts 2 bedroom suites with full kitchens, 2 bathrooms and a terrace. You have to rent these units from timeshare owners. I have always used Redweek to rent a unit and used their escrow service, First American when making payment. This provides the security... More

Top notch from check in to check out! The employees spoil you and are on the spot! Cleanliness is beyond expectations! This resort offers so much for children of any age. You must visit the Woodsy pool and go down the water slide even if your an adult ITS FUN!!!! Creating memories here that will last a lifetime!

You can't go wrong with Marriott villas. Marriott Vacation Club has consistently high standards for its facilities and OceanWatch is no exception. Villas are spacious, clean, well-appointed and well-maintained and for the most part have great views of the beach and ocean. As an added plus, there's a Marriott hotel adjacent to the villas where you can go to the... More

First Class resort that really goes the extra mile to make your stay unforgettable. Stayed over the 4th of July holiday week and had a great time. The beach is nice and relatively lower traffic than other areas at MB. The resort has numerous pools and my son loved the Woodsy area in particular. We shall return.

We have stayed at this property 6 times and this was the first time we had a problem. For one thing they do not care if you are a Marriott Rewards member or not. We tried to check in at 3:30 and were told there were no rooms ready, although other people seemed to be checking in. We said we... More
