“Sun, Fun For Everyone”
Reviewed March 19, 2012

Our family of four adults and two children stayed for ten days in early March. The villas are wonderful. The hotel and all of its amenities are wonderful...plenty to do. The youngest child participated in all of the activities...tie dying tee shirts, stories and ceramics. The older child golfed at the many clubs available in the area with his Dad. Dinner was grilled on the gas grills provided by the beach. We swam day and night in the 85* outdoor pools. The children fixed marshmallows and smores in the early evening. What a wonderful vacation. Ten days after our arrival, we traveled home from our beachfront villa with many memories and lots of sand, shell and sharks teeth in our bags. One contraray item: The aerobics teacher on Monday the 12th was not very good nor did she show that she knew anything about water aerobics. She conveyed very loudly that she did not appreciate any chubby people in her class as she was a nutritionist. Too bad for her- she had a very nice group of people who wanted to learn.

Room Tip: Pay a little extra- stay in a villa...beachfront....You wake up to the incoming surf and at night, k...

Spent 5 wonderful nights at OceanWatch villas. Very friendly staff. Entire property is well maintained, plenty of activities offered daily. My 8 year old daughter loved the water slide and heated outdoor and indoor pool, 85 degrees. Our 2 bedroom condo (very clean and well decorated) offered plenty of space for my family of six. There are plenty of condos in Myrtle Beach, but... if you expect a clean and well maintained property, look no further than OceanWatch.

Room Tip: High floors (10th floor or higher)in the Maple and Pine building offer best views of ocean...

We stayed the week before Christmas and had a wonderful time. It was not overly crowded during our stay but the place well-kept and clean. The pools are heated but was still too cold to be in the water. Thank goodness for the indoor pool. For 2 nights we had smores, and then one night they had roasted marshmellows. It's a very nice resort away from the hotel congested part of town.

Note:The events in the kidszone do not indicate a end time for activities. They had an ice cream social but it was only for 30 minutes. We got there after it was over and my daughter was disappointed. Also, we went in there a few times and the staff was not particularly friendly or welcoming.

We had an ocean view room in the Pines Building. The rooms are very well kept and very spacious. It has all the amenities of home. The kids loved the on site activities and play ground. I have no complaints at all. Well worth the extra dollars because it far exceeds all of the other Myrtle Beach properties that I've experienced. Staff friendly and eager to help. Picky moms- this is the place to stay--- very clean / well kept room! It's obvious that the staff takes pride in the up keep of the condos.

Everything you need is in these villas. We were in the Pine Bldg on the 9th floor, good view of the ocean, would have loved oceanfront. The rooms were very nicely decorated and quite comfortable. Not alot of noise we slept late almost every day.
There seemed to be a good many planned activities for all the family.
Heated pools are a must in February and were well used.
A chair is needed in the queen bedroom, other than that a great place to stay.

Room Tip: Higher the floor, better the view

Stayed here in early March in a two bed room villa.

The location is excellent, and BTW the property is huge but doesn't feel it. The Grand Dune's Villa's is part of a large Marriott complex that has a beautiful hotel, and the vacation club villa's are foot steps from the Ocean. What is nice is the villa's, even at this time of year have lots of activities.

The Marriott hotel is a short walk and has restaurants and a nice bar. So you get the best of both a vacation villa with out the bustle of a hotel, but when you want to see people and enjoy "vacation hotel stuff" its right there.

The Villa we stayed in was set back from the ocean but still has great views. remember, there are a number of villa high rises, the unit we stayed in is 8500. Set back from the main building right at the beach side. The key is to get a room above the 6th floor ! The villa pools are very nice and this place has pretty much everything you need. The kids play area was amazing, lots of cool looking things to keep them busy.

The villa is well equipped and everything worked just fine. Nice TV's, clean kitchens , large comfy beds and well stocked to make a meal. I never did, because MB has so much to offer, but it was nice to keep breakfast items on hand.

The pool side bar had a simple menu, burgers, tenders, salads, sandwiches and mixed drinks.

Room Tip: Ask to be above the 6th floor to start to see the ocean. Not that the garden views are bad in any wa...

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.
