This facility is amazing! We've been going to Marriott's Grande Ocean Resort on Hilton Head for 15 years straight now. The resort is located on one of the best beaches ever for the Atlantic Coast of the U.S. They have a nice selection of pools and plenty of activities for kids. The front desk staff is super helpful and always friendly. The grands of the resort are always in great shape and the management clearly takes pride in what they do. Great place that we look forward to year after year.

Room Tip: South side of the resort is open with clear view of the pools and ocean while the north side is more tropical-like with lagoon and trees- take your pick.

We just stayed at the Grande Ocean for 4 nights during our Spring Break Trip. WE love the Marriott brand of vacation clubs! All the amenities of a Marriott, but the convenience of a condo. My kids (age 8 and 9) loved the variety of pools and hot tubs, giant chess set, ping pong and lagoon where they could feed the fish. We loved the comfortable condo and the beautiful beach-front view of our Sand Dollar building that we stayed in. The service was great. Great pool-bar. Only wish would be for more casual dining options, but the one casual lunch we did have at the pool grill was very good. We did take the Vacation Club meeting for a $400 credit and learned a lot, and are actually considering buying into the club next year.

Room Tip: Ocean-front Sand Dollar building was great!

This is for Pool Bar Jim's only. We did not stay at resort, just frequent PBJ's from time to time. This is a tiki bar outside the Marriott resort in South Forest Beach. Always clean, always a good crowd. Problem is that I am not a rich person so I can only afford one drink at this place even though they are excellent-made from real fruit and real booze. They give you the entire contents of the blender. Best drink on the island but bring lots of cash.

If you are usually happy with Marriott Vacation Clubs, then this resort should meet your expectations. We were here during an unusually cold time, so there wasn't a whole lot to do as a family. We spent a lot of time at the indoor pool, and the bike rentals were great towards the end of the week when the temperatures normalized. I can see how Hilton Head has a lot of appeal in the summer. The bike paths in Sea Pines are amazing.

Overall, I think this property needs more interior updating then they have recently put in. I tend to think Marriott doesn't do a great job keeping things as up to date as they could given this is an older vacation club. We stay at quite a few vacation clubs because we are owners in Hawaii, and this meets the "standard" that we are used to but it certainly doesn't exceed expectations.

Room Tip: Ask about the recently renovated buildings
