Marriott's Barony Beach Club

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Hilton Head is already low-key. But if you want even greater relaxation stay here. Away from the main attractions. Peaceful. Beautiful. We have stayed here three times and will be back in the future. The rooms are spacious and clean. The ocean front rooms are incredible. The pools are numerous. Kids love the game areas. Easy access to the beach and paved bike/walk paths. With a full kitchen in the room and All Y'alls Grill by the pool you really never have to leave the grounds if you don't want to.

Excellent resort. Typical Marriott quality, spacious well appointed 2 bedroom unit. Great ocean view. Plenty of activities for the kids. Not much to do after dinner. Bar closes too early for adult socializing.

We recently stayed here for Spring Break. We really enjoyed the property and my son especially enjoyed the pool with the large waterslide. I am only giving this property 4 stars because daily housekeeping is not included and due to the fact that the front desk staff and activities team were disorganized. There were a couple of activities that my son attempted to go to that he missed out on as the activities brochure that we received at check-in was inaccurate. Overall, all staff were very friendly. Also, Tyler on the concierge team was very helpful and provided outstanding customer service.

An Elite Marriott Beach Resort We have been guests at Marriott's Barony Beach Club from year one. We like that Marriott's Barony Beach Club is a smaller Beach Front property, and has access to the Public Beaches of Hilton Head. Marriott's Barony Beach Club is a short drive to Fine Dining and to casual dining. Marriott's Barony Beach Club has recently been redecorated with new carpets, bathrooms, kitchens, et al. Marriott's Barony Beach Club is a great resort for families and for couples. Dum Spiro Spero

We booked a month here to get away from our cold Northern home. It is now our 4th week and we don’t want to leave. We have a two bedroom oceanfront that has a gorgeous peaceful view of the ocean and the ocean is steps away as are the pools. We rented bikes for the month and enjoyed exploring the beach and the islands on our bikes. We played lots of golf at many of the island’s lovely courses. We had multiple couples visit us and the setup is perfect for guests with bed and bathrooms at opposite ends of the apartment. The staff is some of the nicest I have experienced at Vacation Clubs...always offering to stop whatever they are doing to help us open a gate or a door. We usually like to stay at a different vacation club every year but we have already booked a month next year at Barony Beach Club.

First trade through interval to a Marriott property. First time to Hilton Head. Placed in Jasmine Building which is renovated and nice, however not as convenient to beach as other buildings. Other properties offer bikes as complimentary. $30 a week per person, did not buy for the 4 adults just the 3 kids. Firepits closed, splash pad closed, slide closed. No volleyball, basketball, tennis, put putt. Not a lot for kids to enjoy the resort had to offer on their spring break.

I wrote my first 5 star review in 2011 and have come back to the Barony ever since. If you love the beach you can be out walking or riding a bike in minutes! The villas have all been updated and they are fantastic. Comfy and everything you could possibly need provided for you. The grounds are lovely and plenty of pools to swim in. It is always a little cold in March but we used the indoor pool each day. They have activities but we don’t participate because we golf and have many other things on the Island we like to do. If you haven’t been to HHI and the Barony-what are you waiting for! Also-we have stayed in both the Garden and beach side villas and loved them both. Maybe a few more steps to the beach but that didn’t bother us.

We have been vacationing on Hilton Head Island for several years. As Marriott Vacation Club owners, I never wanted to stay at Barony Beach. But I did two weeks ago and it was a pleasant stay with a few wrinkles that were ironed out to some degree. While it is an older resort, updates have been made. Does it rival Marriott’s Grand Ocean or Newport Beach? NO. But if you come with realistic expectations, you will have a pleasant stay. The resort needs to clearly define ocean units. We paid premium points, thinking our visit from the balcony would be sunrise over the ocean and the soft sound of the surf in the distance. If you really strained, you could see a sliver of ocean between the buildings but it was with difficulty. We were booked in one unit for five nights and because of availability, had to move to the garden side for our final two days. The units are appointed in the same way and the points are less. But our move was not seamless. We were up and ready to roll at 6:30 am. I called the front desk. They suggested I call back at 7 AM and speak to the AM staff. I did. They said We would have to wait for housekeeping to call us at 8 AM. Naturally, we had to call them but didn’t connect until nearly 10 AM when we thought we would check in. No, the room would be ready between noon and 2 pm which now limited our activities for the day ( couldn’t book golf, missed exercise classes, etc) so we were unhappy about it. The exercise program was virtually non existent. Twenty minutes before the start of Friday’s class they called to cancel them. Meanwhile, I was running, missed the call, showed up and not any classes. I missed classes on the island since I thought I would try the abs class. Not cool. Grand Ocean has a full schedule every day, including spin and outdoor yoga. On a positive note, Kenisha at the front desk gave me great biking directions and the woman at the gate House was beyond welcoming and helpful. Genesia was beyond gracious at every encounter. Frankie, the floating concierge, is the utmost in helpfulness, and earns a five star rating. However, she needs more of an on site presence. The others are beyond useless. When asked to help secure a reservation to a popular spot. She replied it was solidly booked. Did she suggest calling for us and getting us on a wait list or suggest another jazz location? No, Tina did not. Did she return my call about my Bistro 17 inquiry? No, she did not. Not service in my book! The indoor pool was great but with five maintenance men at the gym, my workout was far from perfect Thought the distance from everything would be a deterrent but I loved the area. The Barony Golf Club was great. I rode my bike to a great Hot Pilates course at the other end of the island every day and loved it. The ocean takes your breath away! My first impression of Namaste Spa was not positive when they were unable to provide services I wanted. Parker, the manager on staff, was the knight in shining armor and managed to secure an appointment for us. The spa is not luxe. But the services were superb thanks to Kelly! We were beyond relaxed!! I would definitely return but it seems summer is an impossible time to secure a reservation. I like the proximity to the Westin which has many events.

We've owned here for many years and even though we trade for another Marriott property sometimes, we always love coming back "home". The staff is always friendly and courtious. Something is always planned for guests, or you can just chill out by the pool or beach. The units are nicely furnished and beds are comfey. The pace is what you want it to be. Grounds are well maintained.

We exchanged our Sheraton Timeshare into the Marriott Barony Beach Club March 2-9th. In terms of the size of the villa, it was a trade in our favor as the kitchen, and living room were larger and more user friendly. The property itself was outstanding. Pools, check-in, and location next to the beach were all outstanding. The villa was decorated with wonderful art, and very nice features. There is some painting going on on the property but it was low key. We will return and definitely enjoyed the property and trip.
