and Marriott never fails to impress. The condo is a two bedroom, two bath with full kitchen, dining room and living room and laundry room. Our unit this year was on the top floor with a spectacular view of the ocean. The resort facilities are outstanding, well kept and up to date. Pool Bar Jim's has the best drinks on the island, just a few steps away from the pool and features live music several times a week. This is a perfect destination for families as well as couples. There are grills for outdoor BBQing, but if you don't want to cook, there are many and varied restaurants nearby to experience. Activities include access to bikes (many nice paths to explore on the island), putt-putt golf, regular golf, tennis, dolphin watching, movies, you name it! HHI is perfect - come and see for yourself!

Room Tip: If you have kids, ask for a high floor on the dolphin pool side.

This is a wonderful property at one of the best locations on the island. Great for families. Very well maintained. Nice confortable decor witjout being stuffy. Only downside is dealing with Marriott annually as this is a popular property.

Grande Ocean is the best place to stay on the island. Right on the beach. Great facility. Very well kept. Great having washer/dryer and two bedrooms, full kitchen, etc. Pool Bar Jim's is awesome - best freshly made drinks on the island. No restaurant on property so you will need to either enjoy one of the hundreds of awesome restaurants, cook, or get take-out. This place is paradise!

We have been going to the Grande Ocean for over ten years and the facilities continue to impress. The rooms are updated regularly, and the outside amenities - grill, Pool Bar Jim's - are great, as well.

The staff has always been very helpful, and we highly recommend the Grande Ocean to anyone planning a visit to Hilton Head. We are excited to heading back to the island later this month for another stay at one of HHI's best resorts.

The hotel is a wonderful resort for vacationing families, couples.

We were here on a business. Gave us wonderful board and private rooms to meet in. Full security support. And gave best in the world treatment. All guests were well treated, They impressed the Boards, trustees.
This is not staying at the finest European resort - it is a Marriot. Great for an American business person anywhere in the world.

We usually stay at the Grande Ocean once a year and are always satisfied. The resort is right on the beach and also has multiple pools on the property to enjoy. There is also a bar adjacent to one of the pools along with a quick service grill-type restaurant. The property and rooms are always very clean and comfortable and the staff are always willing to help should a problem arise.

Perfect resort for mom and dad as well as kids. Tons of swimming pool options, games, organized activities, the beach, on site pizza hut and deli, etc for kids while adults also have the best world renown pool bar with pool bar Jim on property. He uses all real fruit in his drinks with old style blenders, not the island oasis machines. Best drinks you'll ever have pool side, guaranteed!! Location is also excellent, walking distance to many shops, restaurants and ice cream places. Bike trail right off the property and they rent bikes on site. Just a great place to go. Rooms are also nice with full kitchen, patio, washer and dryer, and spacious.
