The Marriott Grande Ocean has a wonderful location on the Atlantic Ocean with a wide walkable beach and only about a mile from the Coligny Circle area of shops and restaurants. The facility is outstanding, the service friendly and accommodating, and two-bedroom quarters well-equipped and very comfortable. So why not five stars? Well, it was some of the little things....

Awesome place for a family stay. The condos/rooms are very large, well appointed and comfortable. We were only in town for 2 nights, but would love to come back and stay longer. Bars/Lounges were closed in Feb, wish they kept all services open all year, but everything was a short bike ride away.

We have been coming here off and on for the past 18 years. Every time we walk into one of the villas, we catch our breath. It is simply an outstanding resort for getting away for a week (or two). We come in February, just as spring begins. It's a great temperature for bike riding, which we thoroughly enjoy. Lots...

Marriott Grande Ocean; location, location, location; and a Marriott too! - My wife and I purchased ‘Silver Season’, Ocean Front here during an Interval International exchange in mid March of 2005. We were fortunate to have been located on a high floor of ocean front during our first visit and that did the trick. We had investigated purchasing ‘new’ at...

After reading all the great reviews, I expected some level of disappointment but there was none. This place is fantastic! I'm not a vacation club member. Just staying a few nights as part of a road trip. Price was excellent especially for such a large well equipped villa. I'm sure it is much more expensive in high season. The villa...

I recently spent one night at Marriott’s Grande Ocean, and just based on the short time we were there, I would absolutely love to come back in the future. We were definitely atypical guests, since we only stayed for one night and we’re not Marriott Vacation Club members. We were just passing through on a long drive from New Jersey...

We've stayed in many hotels on HHI, including four Marriotts. This is our favorite. It has everything you'd want: very friendly and helpful staff, comfortable rooms and beds, more activities by far than any other, great location, etc. Our guests' room was well separated for privacy. We were pleasantly surprised that we had access to Sea Pines even though we...
