Marriott's Barony Beach Club3.5 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Nice pool and bar/grill along with a quiet pool back by the lobby. Our building, Sea Oat was recently renovated. The ocean front room wasn't exactly ocean front as the second floor was more tree front. Unfortunately Hurricane Irma has taken a toll on the resort after we checked out so changes will have to be made.
Very nice accommodations and a well planned/designed facility. Our condo was very well appointed with seemingly new furniture. The outside areas were very clean and well kept and the common garden area offered adult and kiddie pools, two shuffle board courts, two corn hole/bean bag toss pits, eight gas grills for guest use adjacent to a large pavilion and of course a "Tiki Bar" with a light bill of fare with a view of the Atlantic. The beach was a short walk on a bridge across the dunes and offered plenty of room to spread your blanket or towels and not interfere with the rental chairs and umbrellas. The ocean floor was smooth and had a very gradual slope. A great beach for tanning, relaxing, walking, throwing a frisbee or a football. I did see a lone surf fisherman who set up after the crowds had left for the day. Bought the unlimited golf package and payed 18 holes 6 days in a row. Visited a different eatery every evening....some good....some not so good. Overall....a very enjoyable week, well worth the 7 hour drive.
Absolutely beautiful family friendly place to stay. Located right on the Atlantic beach with 3 pools. Pool bar a little expensive but food is good. We rented a 2 bedroom condo and had Plenty of room. Staff is very nice. Plenty of things for the kiddos and golf is just outside the door. Overall a nice quiet hidden place to relax in Hilton Head.
Hilton Head offers an abundance of vacation rentals but Marriott has hit the mark with this property. We have rented homes, condos and simple hotel rooms but this property stands above the rest. We have a large family and prefer to travel as light as possible. Marriott has turn key service at this resort. The villas are fully equipped and the resort offers something for everyone from little kids to teenagers to adults. We have been coming since 2011 and plan to be back next summer again.
We read both the negative and positive reviews on this property before deciding to give it a try. Now that I've been, Marriott's Barony Beach Club is a top of the list keeper. I am so glad we went and I know we'll return again. The kids participated in the "build a bear" program which also included a unicorn. They skipped the glass etching [ which I peeked in on and the kids there looked delighted ] but loved the movie and the s'mores by the fire pit. Actually there was an event every day for children that didn't want to spend time on the beach. The adult's in my group thoroughly enjoyed the low country shrimp boil open-air dinner event and cocktail hours. There's so many options. You get a list of the current weeks activities, which are also posted on property, when you check in. Of course let's not forget the wide expanse of beach waiting for kites, bikes, walkers, swimmers and those who want to just sit and watch the waves float in under an umbrella. Uber comfortable and spacious rooms with luxurious bathrooms and outside seating to do some star gazing. If you want to eat in, everything you need is in the kitchen for preparing and serving dinner. The property has well-lit walk ways that traverse to various points and includes handicapped access for wheel chairs and strollers to the beach and pools. From your greeting at the gate, your welcome at reception and your interaction with property staff, customer service is stellar. There's just nothing not to be happy about at this place. Thumbs up for Barony Beach Club! Well done.
We just left Barony after a wonderful time! My three daughters loved the activities - especially the sand casting! The suite was big and beautifully decorated - like Coastal Living magazine. We loved the pool - shout out to Kashene the lifeguard! And really loved the food and drinks at All Yall's. Sitting there with a pina colada and listening to live music was heaven!!
Just returned. Lovely property to stay at. Suites are big and well equipped. Had plenty of room for the 5 of us. The facilities are very nice. But the children's area was not as extensive as some of the other places we have stayed with Marriott. Try to book away from the garden section if you don't have children 6 to 12. The beach is well maintained and the water was so warm this time of the year. Activity staff was wonderful as usual at Marriott. Has a tram to run you back and forth from garden section (kid's area) to ocean section.
We loved our oceanside 2bd/2ba villa - well decorated and super spacious with an excellent layout for family dining and hanging out. Perfect for our 2-family + grandpa vacation. Resort amenities were very good. We enjoyed the different pools (the kids especially loved the slide in the garden villa area); we grilled dinner one night; we played shuffle board and bean bag toss; we ate at the poolside bar and grill (the only restaurant on site); and we participated in many of the activities on their calendar - sand art, pottery painting, bingo, slime making, the magic show, and tie dye, to name a few. The resort is located in the quiet, northern part of Hilton Head Island, and access to the wide powdery sand beach is a short walk away. The Friday night smores party was a nice touch. Staff were friendly and helpful. We would definitely come back.
Suites are very nice. Bedrooms and bathrooms are roomy and nicely decorated. Living areas are also roomy, although the kitchen is small. We stayed several nights on a "girl's trip" with 5 adults and we never felt crowded, unless we were all vying for the mirrors to get ready in the evenings. Lighting could be better in the "dressing" area. The grounds are lovely and there are always activities going on if you choose to join them. Overall very comfortable place to vacation!
Newly renovated 2 bedroom condo was fantastic. Located on the beach side with pool view. Very quiet with large master bedroom shower. (it just needed a shower bench to be perfect). The walk to the beach was easy with a ramp and long plastic walkway halfway to the wide beach. There's a nice little bar / restaurant by the beach pool with great fried shrimp. Close by is the Port Royal golf course that has 2 18 hole courses. We'd definitely come back.
