This is the second time we have used our week at Grande Ocean that we have been assigned a villa that is run down and need of refurbishing. Apparently the refurbished villas are given to those non Marriott renters that are paying $300/day or more. After over 20 years of owning we thinks it's time to sell, as Marriott no...

A guest's initial impression of a property will set the tone for the remainder of their stay and Marriott Grande Ocean exceeded our expectations from the moment we pulled in, to the first step we took in our villa. Their grounds and villas are ultra-clean and you can see that the housekeeping and engineering/maintenance staff takes great care in keeping...

Our 3rd visit to HHI and 1st time staying at the Grande Ocean. We love Hilton Head and surrounding area. This resort is very well designed and laid out. Parking is a snap, no matter where you're at you are close to your room. Proximity to resort and island resources is optimal. Rooms are great, we had an average 2...

On our second family trip to Hilton Head, Grande Ocean really delivered during a capacity week. Convenience and fun are the main deliverables here--superb accomodations in newly renovated timeshare units, great pools, best frozen drinks by the pool, plus a staff that's motivated to serve. An outstanding resort located in Hilton Head with golf, fishing, boating, lots of restaurant choices,...

I've had mixed experience with timeshares, but at Marriott Grande Ocean I was very impressed. We had a newly renovated suite, and the decor was modern and comfortable. While we had a hiccup with the air conditioning not functioning our second day, the staff was extremely responsive and came to fix the problem immediately. The activities were some of the...

We were guests of vacation club owners; Grand Ocean is a great place for a vacation. While our "condo" was not one of the newly renovated, was nicely decorated and spacious. There were a few minor maintenance issues, housekeeping forgot to leave towels after cleaning, etc.,, but there was a quick response to whatever we needed. We had a beautiful...

My Mom and I had a fabulous time. We were visiting my brother Michael who owns the top restaurant in Hilton Head, OMBRA Cucina Rustica in Wexford Village. This hotel was extremely warm welcoming, any time you needed your glass filled, they were there . I never felt more welcome at any other hotel !

We really enjoyed our stay at The Marriott Grande Ocean. The room that we had looked like it had been renovated which was nice. The amenities were great, too. LOTS for kids to do at this resort. The BEST part of this resort, was Pool Bar Jim's!! They had the most amazing drinks and were quite generous, so when they...

Loved this place as a kid. Hotel was right on the beach not far from the main drag to the beach shops. I recommend getting a boogie board surf's up! This was definitely a memorable time and the hotel was great.

Most relaxing vacation I've ever taken. The place is just perfect. Plenty of activities for the kids. Rented bikes and took them to the nature preserve in the sea pines. Then drove back with the car to take pictures for the family album. The rooms were incredibly spacious and modern. I can't think of anything negative to say.
