      Great Marriott resort. We had a reunion with 25 attending. Age ranged from 14 to 95 and there was something for everyone. We used a beach wheelchair to take my husband onto the beach. All of the employees were very helpful. A grandson left his wallet in the villa and Maura in Lost and Found was able to locate and mail it to CA. Everyone had a grand time and it ended too soon. Great place for reunions because of all of the activities. LOVED it!

      WE are 2 week owners Oceanfront Marriott property at Surfwatch and 3 week owners of Maui Ocean Club and Lahaina Towers.

      Love both properties and make it a priority to find the time to use them every year!

      Have been to Surfwatch as often as we can since purchasing our unit in the pre construction phase. We are in the Ocean Vista building and the location couldn't be better. The resort is great for families as well as couples who want to enjoy a bit of down time and relaxation ... then there is plenty of night life in HHI for all to enjoy. The staff has a great attention to detail and their dedication shines throughout the property. Go !!! You won't regret it !!

      We are owners at Surfwatch since 2010, and go there every year. Beautify property in a beautiful setting, with easy access to everything Hilton Head has to offer. The rooms are beautifully appointed and maintained. The staff is always excellent.

      SurfWatch is consistently rated as one of Marriott's best. We have two weeks there every year, and never dream of trading them. The pools are great, bike rental is cheap and convenient, the staff is wonderful, the place is extremely well maintained and clean. We golf and like the deal they have with Old South Links golf course. They also have arrangements with the Heritage Collection, but it's not really much of a deal.

      My wife and I fly from either the Cincinnati or Dayton airport into the Savannah, Georgia airport. Savannah is a very small airport, and car rentals are immediately adjacent to the airport. From I-95, exit at South Carolina State Route 278 for a short 21 mile drive to Hilton Head. Merge onto William Hilton Parkway for about 4 miles and turn east on Burkes road to Marriott Surf Watch.

      We prefer the off-season of a fall or spring holiday with pleasant weather and few tourists, and the absence of children and young parents. We have recently enjoyed a November and a New Year's holiday. This is the slow season, and dining out is a real pleasure. The weather is better than in the northern states, and driving the island is a joy. Check-in is one of the nicest experiences for any Marriott.

      As a newer Marriott property, this resort avoids several mistakes of older Marriott resorts, but provides a dilemma for discriminating owners who value the serenity of an Atlantic Ocean view. The large whirlpool tub is absent, and is replaced by an excellent luxury shower for two! The Hilton Head properties would benefit from fireplaces. Marriotts Surf Watch eliminates the lockout units and offer two and three bedroom units.

      The seawater marsh that is integral to Marriotts' Surf Watch is a vibrant ecosystem consisting of a creek and rising tides that provide a congenial stroll to the beach as well as provide an irenic 50-70 yards of contrasting beauty to the sand dunes, beach, and the Atlantic Ocean.

      The several excellent Marriott timeshare properties will ensure many years of continued visits to Hilton Head Island. Hilton Head is not the destination for the Disney crowd. The visitor who enjoys the natural beauty will be well rewarded. The Garden Units are first rate.

      This resort is one of the best in the Marriott system. It has a great gym, three pools, one indoor which is great for the days that it rains (rare), tons of activities. The location is secure, secluded and the beach is pretty much your own. The beach pool is always active, it has a happy hour with some live music, daily specials and one of the best views in HHI. The golf cart system works great and we have never had a problem. The staff are very welcoming and want to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. Lots of off resort activity. Restaurants are close by and the best breakfast on earth is within walking distance. Harold's Diner is the best dive ever. Triple D needs to check that place out. A treat if you dare to stray from the routine stuff. The grills serve as a community center where you meet other families and learn some good recipes. The resort is a real nice self contained oasis.

      We have more fun here than a couple of foxes in a hen-house! Great staff and love the beautiful wildlife. The saltwater pool by the beach is probably my favorite part - especially with the extremely professional/fun DJ that runs the Name That Tune competition and pool games that just make you laugh.

      We simply love this resort and indeed one of the Top Marriott Resorts in their time share system! Family friendly & very relaxing. All the luxuries & amenities to make your vacation most memorable. The oceanfront pool is unique and the beach feels very private to those guests staying at the Surf Watch resort. We have been vacationing in Hilton Head since 1976 and this Surf Watch Resort location is among the "Gems" on Hilton Head Island!

      We own three weeks and go at least two weeks each year. We usually go duringthe silver weeks (Feb and Mar/Nov Dec), but have been there in April and Sept. In our opinion Surfwatch is the best of the resorts we have visited, and clearly the best on Hilton Head. We had guests from Italy with us last year in Sept and they loved the resort, particularly the beach.

      This is an awesome resort. The staff is some of the best I have seen at any resort. Some units are right on the beach, but really any unit is fine as it is an easy walk or free golf cart ride to the beach. The pools were very nice as well. Some of the planned activities have low participation may be the only negative, but there is plenty to do always.

      Just returned from another great week at this resort. Improved again over 2008. Better food at pool bar and more activities for kids and adults. Well maintained but could use better lighting in units.

      This is my second trip to SurfWatch. This resort is outstanding, and becomes more beautiful as the landscape matures. This an ideal family resort. You see many multi-generation families enjoying the beautiful beach.

      Everyone here works hard to make sure you have an enjoyable vacation.

      My family stayed here during Thanksgiving week and we had a wonderful time. There was lots to do, children had fun activities and there is great shopping at Hilton Head. I would recommend this resort to anyone who wants to be pampered, the employees are very helpful and accommodating. Even though we had a full house (11 people), we didn't feel closed in. The 3 bedroom is very nice with lots of kitchen equipment. We did a unconventional Thanksgiving, we had a oyster roast which was wonderful. There is a place on the resort where you can cook oysters outside. Definitely will do this again.

      We stayed the week of March 15th. The weather was in the mid 70's most of the week. The rooms are very nice with Sony TV's and heavenly beds! The beach is very nice and just a short walk. The staff does a great job with daily activities for the kids. There are three heated pools with jacuzzi's. Wireless Internet is availble. We had a very good week overall and will make Hilton Head our favorite spring break location for years to come.

      Outstanding property. We looked at many properties in Hilton Head over the years , focusing on Mariott given their reputation and quality. Surfwatch was the best by far. The Northern part of the island does not have the density of visitors that the southern part (forest drive). The facility is new and very family friendly. The Beach is not very crowded compare to south of Surfwatch. This was true even when we visited over fourth of July the past two years. We loved it so much we bought two units and come back for at least one week every year. Highly recommended.

      Stayed in our gardenside 2 BR unit in Oct. during a perfect weather week. For us, the walk along the trails and boardwalk was no problem and there was always cart service when we needed it (going and returning). Despite another posting, there was free high speed Internet access and one evening there was live music at the oceanfront bar and pool which is spectacular. I've stayed at other "oceanside" resorts where the walk was comparable. Take the time to stop and admire the plants and waterfowl from the boardwalk. Many vistors used the outdoor grill areas while we were there and we enjoyed the tranquility of our gardenside unit. Staff was courteous, friendly and very accommodating and the units themselves are fantastic.

      Just completed a stay in unit 5513 on 12/9 to 12/15/07. The 2 br unit was spacious and well appointed. Lots of trees and walking paths. The master had a huge rainforest shower that didn't have a curtain or door to cover it. Well maintained. This is listed as an oceanfront resort, but actually the ocean is 300+ yards away. Golfs carts are available to take you to the oceanfrnt cabanas. In the offseason the cabanas are free - there is a charge during the busy season. Internet service is avaliable at 35 cents per minute.

      This is an absolutely beautiful and tranquil new resort. Buildings are widely spaced and lots of natural forest space and wetlands have been preserved. Our kids loved the daily activities and friendly staff. The rooms are the most spacious and well appointed of all the Marriott resorts we have stayed over the years. We appreciate the more laid back quiet feel of this resort. No loud music blaring; and the beach and pools are not overcrowded like down at Grande Ocean. The ocean was visible even from our 5th floor Gardenside (situated along a georgeous fishing pond with docks and swing chairs). I've never seen a nicer in-door pool building as they have here. The walks to the beach were just fine, and our 3 kids never complained. Shelter Cove Marina is only a block or two south of the resort and provides for some great nightly fun.

      The hotel rooms are brand new and beautifully decorated. I found the walk to the beach to be ridiculous especially with two small children. The shuttle is not always readily available, and with a garden view the walk is time consuming and difficult for small feet. Also the pool closer to the ocean is too small. There is no music or bar at the larger pool. Their are few umbrellas (about 7) around the periphery of that pool, so you have to sit in the sun if you want to keep a close eye on your smaller children, or else wake up early and put a towel on an "umbrella" spot. Overall, I would not recomment this resort. It really is not oceanfront. It is akin to the 2nd and 3rd row homes.

      This is a NEW property that is now fully built (2007). The oceanside pool and bar are fantastic and have unbelievable views as you are right at the edge of the beach. I believe all of the buildings are now open. All of the pools, common facilities, and landscapping are done. The Ocean Vista building came out great. The resort was built and is being sold much faster that the original projections. There are a few three bedroom units at MSW (the only 3 bedroom units that Marriott has on the island). See Marriott Vacation Club website for more details. Based on our two Ocean Vista units here, Marriott's Barony Beach, and two at Marriott's Grande Ocean; the MSW villas have some nice updates. All are 5 star resorts now.

      Resort is beautiful. The only thing that is important to note is that none of the buildings are direct oceanfront. The oceanview building is closest, but you have to walk (or use the courtsy golf court shuttle) to the oceanfront pool (which is amazing) or beach. Not a big deal for some, but if you have small children you need to plan for this. The grounds are beautiful and the units are top of the line. There was a cold front (April 6-8) when we were there, but the oceanfront pool was heated (very warm). Great when you were in (hard to get out), and the walk back, or should I say run, was freezing.

      Unbelievable resort. We own two weeks and will buy more when we can afford it. The pool out by the ocean is spectacular; for some reason it always makes me think of Shangri-La.

      The villas themselves are gorgeous. Fully equipped kitchen, and I mean fully equipped - you could cook a Thanksgiving dinner here without having to buy anything but the food. Stacked washer and dryer. Master bedroom shares a balcony with the living room in the unit we were in. Master shower is huge, with a few wall mounted jets, which i love. Bathroom vanities are very up to date, they are the new style that look like a nice dresser with a sink inset into the top.

      Service is excellent. Staff is friendly and helpful.

      You can rent bikes ridiculously cheaply, something like $25 for the entire week and they have bikes for all sizes, including ones with training wheels and a few of those carts for really little ones that attach to bikes.

      We stayed at the resort from July 29 - August 5, 2005. The entire resort is very much a work in progress, but the parts that are open are your typical high quality Marriott.

      We were in a 3-bedroom unit that was very nice. The pools were great. The beach was quite a walk away from our villa, however golf carts were always quickly and readily available to carry guests back and forth to the beach--this was a huge benefit. The beach was very clean, wide and under crowded. Another benefit--because there is only one villa open, there were never any crowds at the pools.

      A couple of things that were missing: a grill (or food service) at the pool and high speed internet access. Also missing was a shower curtain in the master suite. The shower itself was terrific--4 shower heads in a spacious shower, however it is basically wide open. To get privacy, you have to close the door to your room.

      Overall it was a really great place and when it is finished it is going to be fantastic.

      Before I went to this resort, I couldn't find any pictures of it so I took a bunch of pictures for future guests to check out (see link below).

      Beautiful resort! I know that grand ocean and barony are older resorts, but Surf watch is defantally the best by far. The ocean view really is an ocean view. The only reason we want to sell is beacause we are buying a perminate second home on Hilton head and we don't need the use of a time share anymore.

      I was in Hilton Head recently and looked at the land where this complex is being built, as well as the progress of the first two buildings. This will be a premiere first class resort, built by the Ritz I believe. The location is surrounded by $4-$6 million dollar homes, many which are new. I was impressed with the land and privacy due to the wetlands around the property, and the amazing amenities that are planned. I own at Grande Ocean and now Surfwatch (2), and look forward to enjoying a 3 bedroom with family.
