We really enjoyed our stay at The Marriott Grande Ocean. The room that we had looked like it had been renovated which was nice. The amenities were great, too. LOTS for kids to do at this resort. The BEST part of this resort, was Pool Bar Jim's!! They had the most amazing drinks and were quite generous, so when they...

Loved this place as a kid. Hotel was right on the beach not far from the main drag to the beach shops. I recommend getting a boogie board surf's up! This was definitely a memorable time and the hotel was great.

Most relaxing vacation I've ever taken. The place is just perfect. Plenty of activities for the kids. Rented bikes and took them to the nature preserve in the sea pines. Then drove back with the car to take pictures for the family album. The rooms were incredibly spacious and modern. I can't think of anything negative to say.

I have stayed at a number of time share units and the Grande Ocean will rank near the top of the list in comfort, close to the beach and allows for lots of peace an quiet. The canopy of trees that overhang the property lends itself to an extra amount of shelter from the heat. The many pools and whirlpools...

We just got back and loved every minute of our stay. We are Marriott vacation owners and this is our favorite place. The hardest decision we had was whether or not to go to the beach or the pools. Both are a few steps from your room. The daily activities are great. Have to say we had a wonderful check...

This is our second stay at a Marriott property at Hilton Head. We have previously stayed at the Barony, but enjoyed the Grande Ocean a little bit more. We have two teenagers who preferred this location due to its proximity to Coligny Circle and Plaza. It was a nice walk from the Villas to the Plaza to get an early...

Really enjoyed our day at the Grande Ocean, kids loved the pools, the ocean and the food. We didn't like the price of the drinks at the Pool Bar, but I guess that is to be expected. In any event, a really great place to stay, staff were great and we will be back.

As stated, great place to relax or as my 7yr old daughter was saying "chillax". You are a 2 minute walk to the beach. Plenty of spaces around the pool to lay out. They have activities each day for the kids and adults so make sure you get the schedule. Some of the activities cost $ but are very reasonable....

This resort is in a great location with several nice pools and an easy walk to the ocean beach. Our villa was newly redone and was very nice. The only caution is that if you ask for "ocean side" instead of ocean front, do not expect to see the ocean from your villa. Ocean side is really a court yard...

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...
