We have stayed at the Grande Ocean four times now and our stay always goes off without a hitch. It is located right on the beach and also has four swimming pools, including one indoor. They also have Loggerhead Landing bar and the Dolphin Grill. It is located outside of Sea Pines Plantation, but you get a Sea Pines resident...

The Marriott Grande Ocean Resort was perfect! The rooms are updated and spacious, and the amenities are endless. The resort sits directly on the ocean, and beach is right there...no walking! It's understandable why this is one of Marriott's premier vacation locales. We did miss Pool Bar Jim's, however. The Loggerhead bar was okay, but not up to par with...

First time Visit to this resort. Front desk check in very easy and informative but concierge was really unfriendly and certainly in wrong line of work as she just handed us books and maps and said enjoy your stay without one question on what we may be looking to do during stay or restaurants etc. Thankfully the lady doing sand...

I was going to Florida with my family and we had to rest. I came in really early to get a hotel room and reception was nice. They offered a bunch of breakfast places to me while the room got set up. After that we came in with our overnight bags expecting a small hotel room. We came across a...

I know all the hustle and bustle is to get to "Florida" for spring break, but we (I) decided to take the family to Hilton Head Island instead. No hustle or bustle to be concerned with here. Very clean island and plenty to do. We checked into the Grande Ocean and were able to select 1 of 2 condo units...

We stayed here for 4 nights in early April during my kids’ spring break. There were lots of kids, it is very kid-friendly. We are not owners, so we had low expectations for our room. We ended up getting a room on the lowest level (first floor) of the Star fish building but with an ocean view (room 8915). We...

My last review was 2 years ago. In it I had a few issues so thought it might be good to give it a fresh look since last time. As I have said before, we have been owners since its inception. BTW, the Pelican building was the very 1st at this resort! The only pool was the smaller ocean front...

´Tis a grand day at Marriott's Grande Ocean. Marriott's Grande Ocean is an excellent choice of a Premier Atlantic Ocean Front Resort. We are visiting Marriott's Grande Ocean today, and we have often stayed at this resort. We recommend.
