Located in Hilton Head Island’s Forest Beach area, the villas at this hotel are only a short walk to the beach. Families will love to swim in the ocean or play at the Ping Pong tables or shuffleboard courts. There are two large swimming pools to enjoy too, one indoors and one outside, so the weather can never dampen your day of swimming. Numerous lounge chairs surround each pool deck too so the adults can enjoy some relaxation time while the kids play. The spacious two-bedroom villas offer families a full kitchen with a full size refrigerator, oven, dishwasher, a microwave and a washer and dryer. There are a separate living and dining areas too. Complimentary Wi-Fi access can be found throughout the resort so there is never a concern about staying connected to work, home or school. The onsite dining options are available for breakfast, lunch and dinner and they do not disappoint.

Our family made the annual trip to Hilton Head Island again and stayed a week at the Marriott Grand Ocean Resort. The Grand Ocean is our favorite resort at HHI. They continue to make it better year after year! We love the comfortable units, the pools, bar, and wonderful access to the beach!
The Marriott staff is always welcoming and helpful.
Staying at the Grand Ocean also gives us immediate access to the Sea Pines plantation, and that is our favorite on the island.
Next year, we will be back to enjoy another great week at the Grand Ocean!
