My best friend and I stayed at the resort for a long weekend and we really enjoyed the resort. All of the staff members were very nice and friendly. This is a timeshare resort so just a head's up that they will try to get you to take the tour to get your last night's stay free if you stay for three or more nights. They will ask you what your annual income is. If it doesn't meet their income limit, they will stop the tour persuasion. If you aren't interested, tell them you don't make enough money. LOL!! PLEASE NOTE: IF YOU ARE A MARRIOTT BONVOY MEMBER, THEY DO NOT HONOR MOST OF THE MEMBER PERKS. The villa we stayed in was oceanfront. Although we were on the first floor and I prefer higher floors, the view was amazing!!! You could see all of the ocean. If you didn't want to walk down to the beach, you could sit right on your balcony to watch the sun and moon rise. We stayed in the Scallop Tower. The oceanfront towers are the Scallop, Starfish & Conch. There isn't a bad view from any of the oceanfront villas. The resort is huge!!! The pools are outstanding and they along with the whirlpools stay open until 10 PM. The furniture on our balcony was rather weathered and could use some cleaning or could be replaced. The inside of the villa was very spacious. The kitchen was well stocked with small appliances and utensils. Everything looked relatively new. The washer and dryer were a very nice touch. The bathrooms were nice and big. Super comfortable beds too. There are plenty of activities, restaurants and shopping places on and off of the resort. Most of the places off the resort are less than a 15 minute drive. Using Instacart was a bit challenging due to the security of the building. I recommend stopping at the grocery store before you check in or use a ride share service. The resort is right on the beach!!! The walk onto the beach is less than three minutes from the oceanfront towers. The entrance is secured to keep any non-guests out. There are plenty of grills if you want to have some grilled food. We are already planning to return in 2022. Thank you Marriott Ocean Watch Villas for such an amazing stay!!!

4 of us stayed here for a week of golf which will be another review. This place is amazing!! The rooms are spacious and you have all that you need to cook and clean with the packages they leave for you. They have all kinds of activities for kids and adults not to mention all the pools and spas around the complex. Just a short walk to the beach. Make sure to visit the pool bar and Brian will take care of you. We stopped by a few times and after out 1st visit he had drinks ready for us when he saw us walking there. What GREAT service! We didn't want to leave but we had to and our golf game........well that's another story.

Aside from a situation on arrival - (we arrived early and tried to find out when the room might be ready - to no avail), the time spent here was superb! Had the check in staff only said the room wouldn’t be ready until 4pm i would not have agonized and kept checking back with them. I would have got my bathing suit and proceeded to enjoy the afternoon). After we got into the room all was wonderful! The weather was super, the room was clean and comfortable. The whole stay was outstanding. There is a need to train check in staff to be more realistic and honest with guests coming in.

We have owned a week here since 2005. It is still as clean, well maintained and enjoyable as it was then. Management was responsive to our needs..which were minimal, and on check in day Jennifer was just marvelous . What people need to realize is that here, as almost anywhere else, staffing can be short and activities are curtailed based on certain state mandates and a need to keep people safe while still having fun. There was a Dj at the main pool most days, ice pops, bingo, and some basic activities. All staff encountered were courteous and eager to please. Another great week at what the grandkids call grandmas beach house. Thanks to all.

The customer service here is the absolute worst. I would recommend getting training from Hilton. I called days before to let them know we were going to be traveling with perishables. They can’t store it or offer any solutions. I asked if they could put something in the room for my daughters birthday. The concierge was less than helpful. He said they would do balloons but then never did. At 5pm I still didn’t have a room, even though we had pre checked in at 12:30. The front desk manager lacked any empathy or compassion and was rude and condescending. Is this the new Marriott way? Just to note, we are executive level owners and Platinum Elite. In addition, the next morning unbeknownst to me, the front desk checked me out at 5am. I realized this when I was unable to charge a coffee to the room and then a housekeeper entered my room at 8am. When I called down, I received no apology and they said they could not check me back in. I will add, kudos to the housekeeping and grounds crew. One of the housekeepers saw I couldn’t find a luggage cart. Otis turned his golf cart around, helped me find one and then brought it to my car. Amazing & above and beyond (hope slightly restored!) As for the resort, it is beautiful in a wonderful location. I am just less than happy with the service level of Marriott. Hilton is leading the way.

Hi Dawn, thank you for your review of your recent stay at Marriott's OceanWatch Villas. We are pleased that you enjoyed our location and Otis went above and beyond during your stay. However, we are deeply saddened to learn of your interactions with the Front Desk team. We apologize your villa was not available until later in the afternoon and a birthday amenity was not delivered. We will share your feedback with the appropriate leaders for review. We do hope you will stay with us again and we can provide you with a better experience.
