We've stayed in many hotels on HHI, including four Marriotts. This is our favorite. It has everything you'd want: very friendly and helpful staff, comfortable rooms and beds, more activities by far than any other, great location, etc. Our guests' room was well separated for privacy. We were pleasantly surprised that we had access to Sea Pines even though we...

This was our first, much too short, stay at Grande Ocean but will not be our last! The villa was newly decorated, spacious and comfortable. The grounds were manicured, clean and provided every activity we could have asked for. We could not have been happier!! We were treated as valued guests by an attentive and helpful staff, especially Aubrey and...

This was our second stay at Grande Ocean and this year we brought friends. Accommodations were large enough for all of us and we enjoyed the many things to do. Suite was clean and well equipped. Enjoyed the hot tub, pool and beach. Hoping to come again next year.

Grande Ocean did not disappoint. The villa had a great view of the ocean. We were lucky and our villa was not far from the boardwalk to the beach. The room and bathrooms were very clean. The pool bar is awesome and they have a small cafe by the pool if you get hungry. They were able to give us...

As Marriott owners, we have stayed at almost all of the timeshares on Hilton Head and Grande Ocean never disappoints.
