“First Rate Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2014

We went to this resort through timeshare. We were there the week of Feb. 28th. The resort is magnificent. Lots to do, activities all the time.
Beautiful pools and it's right on the beach. Unfortunately for us, we had rain just about every day we were there. Only one day of sunshine. But I have to say they were plenty of things for us to do either at the resort or nearby. The units are great. We had a two bedroom unit and everything was beautiful. The view is great from the ocean front units. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for an oceanfront unit.

We just love going here. Top notch, clean, great location, friendly, beautiful. Kids love all the pools, basketball courts, shuffle board, fitness center, etc. The Grill for food and Starbucks for their hot chocolate. Unfortunately they've learned how to charge to the room! ;) Did I mean the awesome beach?

Our well appointed villa on the 14th floor had 3 king size beds, a nearly private balcony and outstanding views up and down the coast. We have stayed here once before and had a second floor villa in the same building (Pine). The back two buildings are over the "Woodsy Pool" area, which has attractive large warm pools and whirlpools outdoors and also indoors in the exercise room building. I you get a villa almost anywhere in this resort over the 3rd floor level, the location will be very good to excellent. The beach walk is miles long and restaurants grocery stores and many attractions are fairly near.
As with almost every Marriott vacation club resorts, the kitchens are well equipped and a washer and dryer are in the unit. This resort has a small marketplace and a Pizza Hut, but no restaurant. Not a great problem since there are hundreds in the area. Downtown and Broadway at the Beach are about 4-5 miles away, but that makes this resort more private and quieter and likely has more open beach space in peak periods.
There are numerous activities at the resort, but we found the Myrtle Beach area has more activities and attractions than almost any vacation city we have visited. This is a great choice for couples, young or older families or friends.

Room Tip: Ground floor and even 2nd floor do not have great views or privacy in any of the buildings. Anywhere...

My wife, daughter, mother-in-law and I stayed at the resort from 14 to 21 Mar 14 . This resort is an excellent choice for a family getaway. There were so many activities available for all on a daily basis. Our 2 bedrooms unit was clean, modern and well-appointed with necessities. Our unit came with a dishwasher and washer/dryer. We had ocean view and the view of the ocean were great from our balcony. The staff was very courteous and helpful. The grounds and amenities at the property were extremely well-maintained. The outdoor pools were heated as we visited during a cooler period but were still able to use the pools. The resort is well located among the attractions in Myrtle Beach. This resort has by far exceeded my expectations! I have nothing negative to say about this place. I highly recommend this resort to anyone.

We stayed at OceanWatch Villas during spring break with our daughter and two of her college friends. The villa was beautiful and we were fortunate to have an ocean view unit with an outstanding view of the ocean and pools.

The staff was excellent and found the front office staff great especially Kristie from Syracuse who went out of her way to fax something for me.

They have plenty of activities for young and old.

The complex is so clean, the staff is very friendly and extremely helpful. It is close to anywhere you want to get to in Myrtle...Loved it! The beach is nice (water a bit cold!) It was a great place to spend March break. Unit has washer and dryer, full size fridge, oven, microwave, coffee maker. We didn't need to bring anything with us at all. Everything was there, even a dishwasher! We will definitely go back to this place.

Room Tip: we overlooked the ocean and it was beautiful!

Just returned from a week at this resort with my parents and two daughters. Beautiful beach, great pools and hot tubs. Other reviews are accurate and mostly in-line with what we experienced. The unit is typical of Marriott resorts and very nice; two minor complaints include poor lighting in the bathroom and no griddle for cooking breakfast. Excellent fitness room -- lots of equipment and good temperature.A few of us participated in the beer tasting activity; in my opinion, not worth the price ($10 for very small samples, a plastic souvenir glass, and no local beers). If beer is your thing, the New South Brewery tour is recommended (check out their web site)... would be neat for the Marriott to offer this locally brewed beer at their tasting.
