We stay at various Marriott Vacation Club properties 3-4 times a year. Grand Ocean is one of the most popular for a number of reasons: amazing beach, many pools, friendly and accommodating staff.

Continues to be an excellent destination for a great vacation. Marriott did an outstanding job of recovering from the recent hurricane to make the grounds as good as ever. The Pawleys Island hammocks were a great addition along with more free activities for timeshare owners. This is the busiest holiday season we have experienced at Hilton Head Island, as more...

We can't say enough good things about Marriott's Grande Ocean! The rooms are spacious, well stocked (from laundry detergent to pots, pans, utensils, dish soap, etc.), clean and comfortable.

We went here for a charity event and it was fantastic, the hotel and ball rooms were nicely decorated and the staff super friendly. Parking was a breeze and the food we sampled was over the top, hope to come again next year.
