We purchased a time share here before it was built and have never regretted our decision. It is a terrific place for family or couples vacation. All the amenities of home plus the ocean at your doorstep. It is perfectly located- near all activities,restaurants and access on and off island. There are several pools, and hot tubs, plus many activities...

We have stayed at several of the other Marriott properties on Hilton Head, but this one is our favorite. The location is great......close to many restaurants & shops, but far enough away from all to enjoy the tranquility of this resort. The villas are beautifully furnished, well equipped, and always well-cleaned. The availability of a washer/dryer within our villa is...

Our family had a great week-long stay here. Our booking was part of a time share and payed extra for the high-end rooms. We had a newly remodeled room with modern furnishings, new kitchen appliances, laundry in-suite and a beach front view. It was meticulously cleaned. Bike rentals were great and came with a pass to bike through Sea Pines...

We have recently become owners at this Timeshare Resort and have again visited this fine oceanfront property. The grounds are wonderfully kept and the villas are well equipped and maintained in the Marriott standard. The villas are currently being redecorated and within the next two years they will all have a modern "Beachy" feel. The older decor was a Formal...

I am a Marriott owner and have traded for units at Grande Ocean on two occasions. I found the service and accommodations to be in keeping with the Marriott resort traditions of excellence. We had two units to house family members and they were able to put us side-by-side as requested, which made the trip even more enjoyable with communal...

Getting a little shabby - Hope they will be updating soon. Weather was beautiful - Sounds of the ocean are so relaxing: it is right outside our door. Beautiful sunrise off our deck - saw a few alligators and turtles. We will be back in the spring.

The Grande Ocean has exactly what my family likes! Beautiful beach, never too crowded. Villas are well-taken care of, spacious rooms, nice views, friendly staff! The pools are clean and a blast for the kids! Great place, highly recommended!

We are again back to our favorite island resort - this time for 3 weeks. Everything is perfect. The staff is professional and really focuses on the customer. The grounds and the villas are well maintained, and they have numerous activities for the guests. I was really impressed when we rode on the elevator with one of the associates (Orlando)...

This is now our favorite resort at Hilton Head. The rooms are very spacious and in great condition. We did not have one of the remodeled rooms, but felt that everything was still in very good condition. The overall property was similarly well maintained. There are multiple pools, so we never had issues with crowding. The front desk staff is...

We stayed here this past June with our daughter in law and 10 year old granddaughter. 2 bedroom unit was spacious and in excellent condition. Liked the under the unit parking as it was easy to get to our car and there were no ugly parking lots to obscure the view. Right on a nice stretch of beach that goes...
