I remember being 7-8 years old, and accompanying my grandfather to the sales pitch during our week at Harbour Club. Back then, Grande Ocean wasnt but the Dolphin building, the Crow's Nest, and a big hole in the ground that would later become the first pool.

Over the years we've watched it quiety expand into the resort that it is today. I picked up surfing/skimboarding here. First played in a pool (before i ever thought about becomming a year-round USS swimmer). Developed my addiction to blue snow cones. Played with my first real camera on its beaches at sunset (Im an artist now). And even shared my first kiss on the swings by the hot tubs... But, as an adult now, school and work and other obligations have kept me away for over 10 years. When asked if Id rather come for our week in Harbour Town or Grande Ocean this year, I didnt hesitate to choose Grande Ocean. After a long flight and multiple layovers, I arrived last night and fell immediatly into the kind of sleep i havent experienced in longer than i can remember.

I write now from the balcony of our villa overlooking the ocean, and the view and the breeze are still breathtaking. And, if we're being honest, enough to make this guy tear up a little.

We may only be here a week out of the year, and my mailing address may have changed a half dozen times over the years...but Grande Ocean will always be my home. Id recommend it hands down against anywhere else.... But only to folks Id have as a neighbor.

We have been coming to this resort of almost 20 years. This is the first time I decided to take the sales tour. BIG MISTAKE. Wasted 4 hours of my days. Was told someone would be right back after we declined their offer and sale pitch. Umm not. My husband had to find someone so we could get out. The only bright side was the sales manager called a apologized. SAD..

We have been visiting Grande Ocean and Hilton Head Island since 1998.
Every time we enjoy the beautiful setting and multiple facilities of Grande Ocean. The villas are very comfortable.
We will be coming back for many years to come.

We have owned a vacation club villa here since 1994 and love it. The 2 bedroom villa is very large and comfortable. The entire resort is first class with the best uncrowned beach and non stop activities if you want to participate. It is Marriott ‘s premier resort. We cross the US to get here annually.

What an enjoyable hotel and location. The rooms are comfortable, clean and accommodating. Great room service for a snack or dinner while sitting on the ocean view patio. If you don’t want to use valet, you can park on the right side of the enterance and easy access up the stairs, very convient and no wait for the car.

Room Tip: Stay away from rooms near the elevators and ice machine.
