We have a great view of the ocean. The villa is beautifully appointed. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The resort is a little confusing to maneuver, but the refurbishment may be contributing to that. I would like to come back when that is completed and the weather is a little warmer.

This is a gorgeous resort on myrtle beach. The rooms are clean, up to date, and has nice decor and new tv's. the staff shows their Southern hospitality. Every staff member I passed greeted me. If you are traveling with teenagers like us, my suggestion is to stay closer to the boardwalk where there is plenty to do. This location...

My first shout out has to go to Angela the pre-arrival specialist. She was able to accommodate my room request. I highly recommend the Starfish building on a high floor. Despite the nasty weather we had for half the trip we had a great view of the ocean when the sun decided to come out. Don't come to Myrtle Beach...

My family and I have returned to the Marriott Ocean Watch in Myrtle Beach for the fourth time. We have tried some other resorts, but keep returning here because we feel at home. For my sized family, I book two or even three 2 bedroom villas. They have always been able to get us units that are close together, but...

Despite the unfortunate luck of having a cold, wet and windy week. We managed to have a great time. The resort offers lots of activities and amenities for all age groups. Staff was courteous and helpful. Like all Marriott properties it was clean and nicely furnished. Myrtle Beach has something for everyone

I had the best experience here. Very impressive property with several pools and million dollar views. I had to visit Myrtle Beach for a sporting event. I usually avoid Myrtle Beach due to it being so sketchy at times. However, this place helped redeem my personal opinion of Myrtle Beach for the better. It remindex me of my stays at...

Up to Marriott high standards. 2 BR, 2 Bath Condo living. One BR had king bed and other 2 queens. Living room had pull out couch. We had ocean view, not ocean facing. This is a vacation resort with resort activities going on everyday. Tiki bar at the pool is not cheap, one Manhattan cocktail was $15.43! Right on the...

We spent a week in a very nice ocean view villa . The villa was immaculate and fresh. Included a full kitchen, all appliances so we could have cooked if we chose. Staff extremely helpful and polite.

I am not sure if the resort undergoing some renovation was the reason, but this past visit was not quite the A+ experience I always have at Oceanwatch. The garden view condo in the Pines building is our normal choice. This time it was a little more shopworn which was OK since we knew the building update was due after...
