Love it here at grande ocean ... Have a full ocean view Condo ... Bldg 84 It is probably on the renovate list ... Cupboards and appliances are beginning to show their age .. But the view is a killer ... and the indoor pool makes this the perfect spot to vacation in January .

We recently spent Christmas week at the Marriott Grande Ocean, and were very happy with the resort and the accommodations. It was our first visit to HHI and I basically chose Grande Ocean because of reviews here on TripAdvisor. We loved it. The Villa - spacious, CLEAN, nicely decorated, and well stocked. And we didn't even have a "renovated" unit...

We prefer this or other Marriott resorts when we visit Hilton Head Island (about five weeks per year in the fall, winter, early spring). This is a complete resort with several swimming pools, including one heated outside, and one heated inside. The villas are spacious and well furnished from stem to stern! Access to Sea Pines comes with the reservation...

We have been here a few days and have a few more until we leave. The staff is terrific and the place is beautiful. We are staying in a two bedroom. It has a full kitchen with granite countertops and stainless appliances. Full size stainless washer and dryer which is great when staying for a week with two children. Three...

We can't say enough about how awesome this resort is. Its tucked away in a quite section of town yet close enough to all of the dining options. The room we had was extremely clean and we'll equipped with pretty much all you would expect from a marriott resort. The gym is overlooking the ocean and there are plenty of...

Our recent two weeks at the Grande Ocean in Hilton Head were terrific. The staff, especially Eva, Aubrey and Riley were very helpful and most efficient. The condos are spacious and well maintained and have been updated this year. The resort has every amenity you can imagine. Had a small problem when our room was cleaned with trash but it...

We came on a time share and would of not come here if we knew before what we know now. First off we are both smokers and are polite enough not to do smoke in villa, but they had it where you had to go either off property or little shelter on the edge of property to smoke. Felt like...

We don't want to go home and leave this view!! Check in was quick and easy. Love that they don't make you go through five steps to just get checked in. They gave us a handicap accessible room that was ocean view. We didn't expect that at all and loved every minute of it. The grounds are gorgeous and there...

This is a wonderful wonderful property! The condos are big and recently remodeled and the grounds are beautiful. It is right on the beach and the pools are beautiful. The work out room is on the 4th floor overlooking the beach and has nice equipment. We will definitely be back!
