Visiting for the first time, our family of 4 loves it here. Staff very friendly and helpful. A full line up of activities for all age groups. Many pools and hot tubs on the property; more than enough pool chairs and umbrellas for everyone who needs one. Then of course the beach is just a few steps away. We're having...

My wife and I spent 4 nights there last week. It is truly a beautiful property in a great location. The villas are very nice and well equipped. There are several pools and spas on the property and even in August at near capacity we could find a pool chair. Gas grills in several spots for those who want to...

Our family of 4 stayed here as a promotion by Marriott Vacation Club in a 2 bed 2 bath villa. The villa seemed newly renovated and was spacious and well-decorated. Many of the public rooms were dated and tired but the gym was great with awesome views of the Atlantic. Large number of pools made it feel not crowded. Good...

We have been going to Grande Ocean on and off for the last eleven years and have always loved it. Some of the summer weeks were spent away at another Marriott Facility or abroad and we gave Grande Ocean a miss during those years. We drove from Eastern Pennsylvania starting Friday night and slept in Virginia before continuing further. We...

This beautiful timeshare is right on a fantastic beach. The view from our oceanfront two bedroom unit was breathtaking. We would sit out on the patio and watch the dolphins play in the water while we ate breakfast. Our unit has been completely remodeled with in the past few months. Every detail was impeccable. There was a brand-new washer and...

My family and I just returned from a week's stay at the Marriott Grande Ocean in a pool view 2 Bedroom/ 2 Bathroom Villa through VacationCandy.com. I can honestly say that from check-in to check-out we were nothing but pleased with our experience. Firstly, the villa: We had 5 total people in our party and the villa was so big...

I stayed here as a guest of friends who have a time-share week every year. This resort is truly 5-star! The villas are large and very comfortable. It's a time-share, so housekeeping doesn't come in every day, but they are always available if needed to make sure the villas are stocked with supplies. The resort is very close to shopping,...

I simply don't have enough praise for this resort - something I haven't given out often. The rooms were spectacular; the grounds are stunning and the staff could not have been more pleasant or accommodating. This is absolutely a first class resort. We stayed five nights on the lagoon side of the property. We had a beautiful balcony to enjoy...

Our family has been vacationing on Hilton Head for 25 plus years. We have stayed on other Marriott properties throughout the island. This was our first stay at the Grande Ocean. We loved everything about it. The villas were huge and well maintained and equipped. The amenities and pools were a bonus. They have wonderful activities for all ages! We...

My grandmother owns a timeshare here and we have visited lots. There is a convenience store pizza hut and a small burgers/dogs restaurant right on the resort. There are plenty of activities, great views right on the ocean with rockers and swings, too. Jim's Pool Bar is a MUST for the BEST fresh fruit drinks!
