Stop reading now and just go make your reservation! We stayed in the 2 BR Villas in the Starfish tower and had an outstanding time. We own at the Marriott Kauai Beach Club in Hawaii and came here using points in the off season. We were pleasantly surprised with the amazing weather in early March.
We had a handicap accessible unit in an oceanfront building. They even have some units that have wheelchair shower access and this is an added bonus. As my mother ages it has been challenging to find properties that are truly handicap accessible but this was generally not an issue at this resort. There are some locations that could be improved with automatic door openers near the Marketplace. Be sure to put your request in a few weeks in advance if you need an accessible room - especially wheelchair shower access as they are limited.
This is a first class Marriott property from top to bottom. It is away from the congestion in the heart of Myrtle Beach. There is no overcrowding on the beach in front of the property. The units are spacious, extremely comfortable and are well stocked for cooking. The view was excellent! The front desk staff was very professional upon check-in. The room was not ready until 4pm even though we called and asked for an earlier check-in (2pm) as we were travelling from another Marriott property at Hilton Head Island.
There are a ton of activities offered for people of all ages. It is close to Walmart and other shopping options for food. Restaurants abound in the area. You could stay on the property the entire time and enjoy yourself or go out and about to explore.
We are heading back for 18 days in February 2013 and looking forward to our stay!
