Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 5, 2012

Have stayed at the Marriott's OceanWatch Villas at Grande Dunes several time now with just my wife and with the children and grandchildren. The resort has always been perfect for us with excellent room and activities. Staff has always been extremely friendly and ready to take care of any matter immediately.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom, 2 bath villa in the Scallop Building with a beautiful ocean view in February. The resort is exceptional! Upon arrival we were checked in immediately and once in our villa we checked out the channels on the TV and found that some were not working and we called for service which showed up immediately and the tv was reset and worked fine from that point on. The service responds in a timely manner and every staff member we came in contact with was more than professional and very friendly. We just love this resort and plan to visit there again next February.

I would highly recommend this resort to everyone!

We stayed on the 14th floor of the Maple building from February 19th thru February 26th, Ocean view and next door to the building with the indoor pool and fitness facility.

Check in was the fastest we've encountered at the Marriott timeshares and our rental equipment (crib, feeding chair and bag of toys) was waiting for us, and quickly delivered to our room. So quickly they beat us there! Staff was warm, friendly and helpful at check in.

We always found a parking spot outside our building, even with the storage pods being used for the renovations going on in the villas. There is the option of the covered two story garage but we never needed to use it.

The villa was a bit smaller than those in Orlando and Palm Desert, but still spacious enough for my family of four. All of the furnishings in our villa seemed in good condition, although I'm sure the stove was slated for replacement showing some wear and tear. We don't know if our villa had already been refurbished, but I don't think so since the new items coming in didn't seem to match what was in our unit.

The villa was clean, and we had the tidy service each day as part of our package using rewards points for our stay. We never had that before and it was a nice plus, put the hotel feeling on our villa stay. Our beach towels were replaced every day which saved on laundry. There are other options for cleaning for a fee.

The resort is beautiful and in the process of adding a new serenity pool directly behind the Maple building. That being said, we barely heard any construction or renovation noise in our villa. One day we thought we heard some tapping above us, but it was mid-morning and we were leaving the resort anyway. By the time we returned early afternoon, all was quiet again.

We spent time everyday at the indoor pool and since it was off-season, had the pool to ourselves at times. The toddler pool was great for our two year old, and the regular pool, which is 4 1/2 feet at the deepest was perfect for our five year old. The hot tub was great for warming up before heading back outside to our villa in the next building.

Overall, a great visit, staff was great throughout, always greeting us with a smile and happy to help at any time. My husband called for help with the dryer and they came within five minutes (operator error). Same quick and friendly response when we blew a breaker in the master bathroom, which they fixed immediately.

Room Tip: 14th floor was wonderfully quiet

We stayed in a time share that had two bedrooms, a kitchen, and a living room. It was well maintained, clean and the bedding was outstanding, Great mattress and a comforter to die for. But overall, the villa was small and the kitchen in particular was not very functional. Two people in the kitchen - one at the refrig and one at the sink - did not work out. The view was great from the balcony and there were top of the line TVs in the unit, But the TV guide on screen was useless. It did not allow you to search forward to see what might be on later nor did it describe the program nor did it list the station currently on screen.
These are small things but Marriott could do better with the kitchen size and the TV informationals.
Overall, the villa was comfortable, upscale, and with its location, a good value. But for the negatives mentioned, it would have rated 5 stars. However, in my opinion those negatives drop the rating to about 3 1/2.
To be fair, there were many amenities/activities available but since we were there on a golf vacation, we never did take advantage of them. Suggest folks on a golf holiday stay elsewhere as the resort is better suited to those who want more than golf.

First time staying at a 5 star resort!! Would most definitely stay again if given the opportunity again. The staff was very nice, very accommodating and went out of their way to make sure our stay was perfect. The oceanview from our villa was unsurpassed. Our villa was beautiful, the grounds were perfect and it was so peaceful and quiet. I really loved it.

Took the family here for a few days over the Christmas vacation. Weather was winter cool, so we did not expect to be using outdoor pools/areas. They had the great outdoor pools heated to about 85 degrees, and the kids enjoyed swimming even though the outdoor temps were about 50-65 degrees. The 2 bedroom villa was beautiful, clean and very uptodate. Had equipped kitchen and washer/dryer. Small market had things you might need/forgot, made to order pizzas, salads for lunch and coffee-very convenient. Overall great trip and villa
