First time to Hilton Head, taking daughter and grandkids on Fall Break to ocean. We had requested same building when we reserved rooms, and wife even called to confirm a week before, however upon check in, separate buildings. Staff was accommodating to get us in same building. We were in Back Building (pool with slide), bad news slide only open 12-3pm daily, one of lifeguards was rude to grandkids, always on her phone. Since in back building, had to take "tram" to ocean or big pool daily ( Tram runs 9am-6pm) so if you want to walk on beach in morning or evening, you will have to drive over or walk to get there....one of tram drivers, Al, was great with the kids, and very courteous. We rented bikes one day and rode on the beach, GREAT IDEA, well worth the money, staff at bikes was super, took time to fit bikes for the grandkids to ride!!! Pool by the ocean was great, only place to get a drink or food, able to charge to your room (AWESOME). Beds in the rooms are really hard, but pillows were soft. Rooms have a great setup.
Signage in Hilton head is hard to read, so finding places takes some time, so use your GPS.

Always a good choice. My family and I enjoy this spot for location and the service standards of this group. (Marriott) A few housekeeping issues (cleanliness at check in) but not enough to change my point of view. Front desk staff is kind and serving.
We have stayed here many times and will be back hopefully.

My family and I decided we would spend our summer vacation on Hilton Head Island this year. We had vacationed at Mertle Beach but over time had a desire to check out Hilton Head Island. I must say this was quite an enjoyable vacation. Our stay was for 5 days at the Barony Beach Club Ocean Villas, a Marriott property. Let me begin by saying my family and I were not disappointed. Upon check-in, my family ad I received a very warm welcome from staff. We were even offered a glass of wine which was very refreshing. Our condo was located on the 2nd floor. We were very pleased with the amenities it offered. The condo offered 2-bedrooms and 2-full baths with a kitchen and balcony. It should also be noted that the parking garage is sheltered and located below the condos. If I remember correctly, the resort has two sides to the property.
There is a "beach side" and there is the "non beach side". The difference is for the "non beach side", you have to walk a small distance to get to the beach. The beach is really non-descript. It's the beach with no frills. The resort complex has an indoor pool as well as an outdoor pool. It has a exercise room and a game room. It is also located in close proximity to shopping and restaurants. The resort will also book tours of the island for you. The tour my family and I booked was the tour to Palmetto Bluff. As for restaurants, we made reservations to eat at Ruby's, one of the most popular restaurants on the island. Ruby's serves down home southern food. The fried chicken is to die for. There are two locations. The other restaurant we tried was the Crazy Crab seafood restaurant. I would have to give it 2.5 stars. Each person in my party ordered the steamed seafood pot which consisted of One-half a Maine Lobster, Shrimp, Snow Crab Legs and Oysters, with red potatoes and corn on the cob. We were not pleased with the flavor at all. It had a bland flavor, no seasoning as we're used to here in Florida. We were disappointed. One of the sites you must see is the Harbor Town Lighthouse. There is admission for entrance into Harbor Town. My family and I really did enjoy our stay in Hilton Head Island. We're excited about returning in the future. There is a lot to see and do.

Room Tip: The rear condos are closest to the beach. Corner condo is closest to the stairs.The elevators are in...

As far as timeshares are concerned, this one is great! Upgraded granite counter tops, full kitchen, laundry room in each unit, two bedrooms (one with king and the other with two queen beds). Great in summertime since there are so many pools and a fun water slide for the kids, grills for bar-b-queing, indoor pool for cool or rainy days, and just minutes from many golf courses! Plus, so nice being just steps from the beach and ocean. A must stay when visiting Hilton Head Island.

Room Tip: Summer is great to be in the garden view rooms if you have kids

this is a nice place to stay. most units very close to beach. 2 nice pools with lots of room to lay out. all 2 bedroom condos with full kitchens and grill areas in garden areas with plenty of tables and sinks. rooms are large with bedrooms situated on each end of the unit so there is some privacy from children or other guest you may be traveling with. the rooms look and feel brand new and are very clean and kept up well.
couple of negatives , no full service restaurant on site but decent pool bar/grill. check out time is 10 am which we found extremely early and had to rush out of room even though I asked for time (they did allow us 1 hour). the rooms are big and it does a while to clean one but I do not think every room was cleaned before they ran us out. all in all a good stay and only minutes from the HH airport.

Room Tip: oceanfront if you get one
