Stayed here again for a long weekend. The villas are just fantastic - very comfy - very clean. Had a tiny mix up with my room upon late arrival. Addressed it the next morning and was so pleased when the desk manager offered to do all he could to make me happy. He was able to work things out with me and moved me to a villa that offered a better view of the ocean. Regardless of which building you stay in, I think they have a total of 4, you will not be disappointed - this place is perfect for everyone. Stayed in Room 3161 which was a corner unit and I loved it.

This was our second time vacationing in Myrtle beach and staying at the Marriott OceanWatch Villas. We had a great time at OceanWatch. The Marriott staff, especially Ms.Kristie Fox "from Syracuse", took great care of us from the time we requested our room preferences until the day we left. We were celebrating our 25th Wedding Anniversary and the staff went out of their way to present us with a balloon and card signed by members of the Marriott OW Staff. Our ocean front villa and the grounds were very clean and well maintained. The beach and pool access was within minutes of our room. There was plenty to do in Myrtle Beach besides golf. We took in a great Italian meal at Ciao's and a couple very good shows, one at the Comedy Cabana and the other at the Legends. We also had a great breakfast buffet at the Ocean's on 82nd. DIaa "from Jordan" was an excellent waiter and very personable.

Room Tip: If possible, ask for a room in the Scallop or Conch Buildings. They have beautiful views of the Oce...

I went a few months ago and this place was amazing. A little pricey if you go during the busy time but I got it at a steal. There were like 8 pool and the ocean felt like it was my own. The room had a relaxing feel with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, full kitchen and great balcony. I will be going again

We love it here. You're at the end of the strip right next to large homes so the beach is nearly deserted. A quick elevator ride and you have hit sand and can walk for miles. We've been combing here for years and it's always been wonderful. My favorite beach and favorite place to just in wind.

Great place to stay with children because of all the amenities available. Multiple pools to choose from, the opportunity to play corn hole, basketball and a number of other activities. Right next to the beach with private access...Best of all rooms equipped with kitchen and washer/dryer set-up.

We recently stayed at the Marriott Ocean Watch Villas and we had a wonderful time!! The staff is very pleasant and helpful. The villas were very nice, clean and had all of the essentials. The property is outstanding. The Woodsy pool is a zero entry pool that is great for kids!! They also have a waterslide that is great for all ages. Even my 2 year old went down with my husband and had a ball!! The pools near the beach are very nice too but with our little ones we didn't get to spend much time there. I really loved that the pools were heated so that we could enjoy them even on cooler days.
There isn't a lot of food on the property. They do have a little store that doesn't have much, just drinks and snacks and such. The Marketplace isn't somewhere you can eat everyday. The have chicken fingers and burgers and a few other things but its not great food. Fine for a lunch here and there but that's about it. The fun thing is that the kids meals come in a little bucket with a shovel...in case you forgot to bring your own:-)

Carrie Hutton at the Concierge desk is wonderful!! She helped us plan some fantastic dinners off the property. She also helped us get tickets for Wonderworks, a fun indoor place for kids.

Overall we loved it here. We will definitely go back. The amenities are great. There are a lot of activities planned everyday for the kids.

Room Tip: The Conch & Scallop building are closest to the beach. The Starfish bldg. still has oceanfront...

We just got back from a week at OceanWatch Villas. We love this place. My wife and my 3 year old daughter initially went down.

The rooms are wonderful. There are 2 bedroom suites. One has a king bed and the other has 2 queens. While we were there the week, we had 2 sets of family members come visit us for a few days each. The rooms made it really accommodating

The pools here are fantastic for all ages, but the kid pool is fantastic for my 3 year old. This is probably her favorite pool she's ever been in. The outdoor pools are all heated. They are amazing. Its funny, cause the indoor pool is much colder than the outdoor pools. Oh well. The hot tubs are all nice too (and there are a bunch of them.) I love that the pools are open late. This is nice.

The beach was nice. as well. Great area. The ocean was a little cold, but that's what happens when you go in May.

We enjoyed eating in 4 of our 7 nights there. We also made breakfast every day there. The kitchen isn't the best, but it gets the job done.

If I had to complain about one thing, it'd be the BBQ grills. I understand they can't put really nice/powerful grills all over, but these grills are really weak. They take forever to get hot.

We really loved our week there. Plenty to do in Myrtle Beach, beautiful stay. We were sad to leave.
