Really enjoyed our stay here. Great fitness center, pool, saunas, and hot tubs. Rooms are large and comfortable. Staff is helpful and friendly. We came with another couple and stayed in a 2 bedroom. Very fun and convenient but also allowed right amount of privacy too.

From the time we booked Marriott Ocean Dunes it has been a wonderful experience. In the beginning the email from Earl asking for preferences on our stay. We were originally booked in the Maples although beautiful it was a little isolated from the main area. We were moved to the main building with a view of the pools and ocean.... More

Let me start out by saying my husband and I were lucky to have unseasonably warm weather during our recent stay- it just enhanced how relaxing it was to be here. The hotel was under construction in some areas due to the after effects of the hurricane. This in no way affected our stay. Our condo was in the pine... More

This was an exchange resort. Decided to do a Fall retreat with sisters and mother. This room, 3032 faced the pool and ocean. This two bedroom was clean, well appointed kitchen, and beautiful view from balcony. Staff provided excellent service! I highly recommend this resort.

Ocean Watch was down to only three buildings while we were there, and there was even some construction work going on in those buildings. Even so, the rooms were great. The views were great. And the staff were great. Hoping to come again next year.

Hurricane Matthew was early October, here it is a month later and we were just notified our reservation was just cancelled, 6 days away from our arrival. They had a whole month to prepare and notify people of reservation issues, it would have been understandable AT THAT POINT. People have taken time off from work, bought tickets for shows and...

I, too, am having problem with communications with Interval International and the Marriott Ocean Watch. I called the Marriott on a few occasions and was told the resort would partially open and then be fully open by mid-November. Our reservations are for November 27-December 4.
