We recently visited Hilton Head and stayed at multiple Marriotts to get a feel for the Island. Surfwatch had some major positives. It's likely the newest of the properties so the rooms are both the most updated but also the most spacious and well laid out. We also felt to staff was the best at SurfWatch which really goes a long way in making a stay memorable. For those reasons alone we would stay again. Surfwatch also had some of the best kids activities (e.g, barbecues, sundae night, sand dollar decorating, smores, shell picture frame making, etc.). There's enough to keep a kid busy at the property alone.
There were a couple negatives, however. I wasn't a big fan of the layout of the pools. They do have a pool right on the beach which is great. I feel like the designer, however, felt they didn't have to be creative since they had a beach pool. The beach pool was a square pool with just enough room around it to fit chairs. It made it feel a bit cramped. The second pool down by the rooms also was not the most impressive. The positive, however, is that they did have a bar with drinks and food down at the beach pool...not all the Marriott Vacation clubs have bars.
The other negative is that the hotel is like 5 miles from Sea Pines Plantation.
