Marriott's Barony Beach Club

So why do you close the heated pool for maintenance? In March if you run Barony Beach! With ocean water so warm in July and August, you need to be sure you have the heated pool ready to offer as an alternative then. Two mornings of our three night stay, the eager housekeeping person cheerily rang to wake us up before 8:30...but than as they say at the beach, "Have a margarita, it's 5:30 somewhere!"

The garden villa's are separated from the main hotel, and all site amenities by construction at the Westin Hotel next door and a maze of jolly chilled kiddy-land water areas, that are so well secured that I had to have a grounds staffer show me how to open the gate. Maybe they will have their act together by high Season, but avoid the property until then

Room Tip: Stay Away from the Garden villas if you want to get to the beach, the indoor pool, the spa, the fitn...

The Barony is very special to our family. We have a week in the Spring through Marriott Vacation Club, but last year we traded it for a week in August. I was disappointed when we first arrived as I did not realize we would not be at an ocean view property just because we have one during our normal week. Still, our condo was gorgeous (Marriott is under contract to renovate every 2-3 years for the tenants). There are too many activities to name during the summer: limbo contests, hula hooping by the pool, cooking contests, movie nights, teen nights at mini golf, spa discount mornings...we did it all. My children are old enough to hop on the little tram that goes from building to building and go down to the beach or pool. They loved this and it made them feel very independent. This property has a ton of places to grill if you would like to stay in and cook. There are a number of great grocery stores nearby and even some fresh seafood markets to get local shrimp and fish. Hilton Head is perfect any time of year for golf foursomes, families with kids or even couples. We love the Low Country!

Room Tip: Ocean view if you can get it!

Marriott is always first class and Barony Beach is no exception. Read the other reviews and you will see that they go out of their way to make your vacation memorable. The staff is excellent as are the facilities. The only thing lacking is a beach view, but the grounds are so well laid out that you hardly miss it.

This is the third time my friends and I have traded into Barony Beach Club. Everytime we were in the Garden Villas area which is better known as the "rejects" area. In the past there has at least been a gate at the back of the pool area to allow guests to cut through the Westin to the beach. That gate now has a really ugly lock on it so now we have to walk a looooonnnnnnggg distance through the main complex to get to the beach. The resort itself is nice the pools and amenities are well done but when you sign up for the Barony BEACH club, you expect to be able to get to the BEACH. One other thing when you get there and sign in get a bag of ice the cleaning staff always empties all the ice in the ice maker between guests. If you smoke the smoking area is almost as far away from the villas as the beach is. If its raining you are gonna get soaked for a few puffs.

Room Tip: Try and contact Marriott and whine and complain until you get a room in the main complex.

Thank you for your feedback. The Garden Villas provide a quality experience that is different from the main resort. Many guests request this area because it is quiet and away from the activity of the other buildings. This area was also recently upgraded to include a new feature pool, slide, kid's splash zone and new outdoor kitchens.

We just finished a week at Marriott's Barony Beach Club. Our unit was in the Morning Glory building and was oceanfront. Most units at this resort are not oceanfront but face a nicely landscaped area. There are two buildings which are set back about a block from the beach and four buildings which are on the beach. There are indoor and outdoor pools and lots of organized activities. Parking can be tight. Only one car per unit can park under the buildings, others must park outside, a bit further from the buildings. The resort is adjacent to the Westin Resort in the Port Royal area of the island. The units are 2 bedroom/2 bath with a king bed in the master and 2 queen beds in the second bedroom. There is a fully equipped kitchen and a washer/dryer. I highly recommend this resort.

Room Tip: Ask for oceanfront since most units are not oceanfront. Units in the "Garden Buildings" ar...

The Marriott goes above and beyond with this Beach Club. The pools are huge and there are multiple private hot tubs. The ocean is at most a 5 min. walk. Everything is close. There are activities for adults and children. Marriott sure does make it a memorable experience. Tip: When you call to make a reservation, ask for a room AWAY from the elevators and on the 4th or 5th floor. If you do this, you get a side ocean view for no additional charge (beats looking at trees) and you avoid the noise from the elevator and people/children running down the hall.

We had been to Hilton Head before, but not this resort. In keeping with most of the Marriott timeshares, the quality of the villa/apartment was very good. Big bedrooms, well equipped kitchen , easy parking.
It was off season, but there were still a good variety of activities and the coffee shop etc was open.
Beachfront a very short walk away.
All in all, a very nice resort, would be lovely in the warmer weather.

Room Tip: Try to get a room overlooking the ocean.
