This is a Vacation Club (time share) but we were able to book a 2-night stay with Marriott points. There are several buildings near the beach and main building. But our room was in one of two building on the other side of the Westin resort from the main campus. The room was great - no complaints there - but it was a PAIN to walk across three parking lots and though the Marriott campus to get to the ocean. There is a shuttle, but we only saw it one time, near the end of the stay. He said we had to all the front desk for a ride. (dragging my junk across the parking lot on a golf cart is not my idea of a beach trip)
We stayed four nights at the Barony Beach under a Marriott Vacation Club Encore Reservation. The two bedroom suite had been refurbished with new décor, etc., and was very spacious and just perfect, with a large partially covered balcony. The beds were extremely comfortable, with large bedrooms and tremendous closet space. The bathrooms were quite large, with one having a full shower and the other a full bath, although the tub was not that large. It seems to me that with all the bathroom space, the MVC could have installed larger tubs such as they have in Desert Ridge or Palm Desert. But a minor point. Even though check-in time was 4PM, our suite was not ready until almost 5PM. The buildings for the Barony Beach are on either side of the Westin Hotel (now also owned by Marriott) but this is not a problem since it is easy to get from those on the far side of the Westin (where we were in Jasmine) to the main complex which has the club house and the access to the beach. Each of the sections has its own pool complex, which are very nice, with a covered slide for the kids, even the older ones. The grounds around the main club house leading to the beach are lovely, with many spots to chill and even picnic. The property is spanking clean and the daily Tidy Service was fine. Although we didn't eat there, the bar and grill near the beach did not impress me. It was actually closed one day for replacement of the equipment. There is an indoor heated pool in the club house, but it was not particularly warm and not well lit for use at night--also not that deep if you want to swim laps. There is a business center room but it only has one computer and printer--Marriott Courtyards tend to have four or more. There are lots of activities, and a good room for the kids. My problem with the activities is that they are not presented consistently, i.e., exercise or yoga class (there was none of those), at the same time every day. They are sort of hit and miss throughout the week, so if you stay less than a full week, you will miss some that you may be interested in. There were some good tours offered, but again the one I was interested in--Civil War sites--only on the day we checked out. There is a beautiful stretch of beach in front of the property, and the staff is very helpful and gracious. The HVAC system worked very well and quietly. All in all, a very nice place for a family vacation, but I wouldn't overpay for it.
Just got back from the Marriott Barony Beach at Hilton Head. Great resort, service and amenities. We couldn't have been happier with our stay. We're always impressed with the various vacation clubs we stay at.
We really enjoyed our stay. The 2 bedroom was perfect. It was too cool to go in the pools but the hot tub was great. The beach was beautiful but the jellyfish on shore were like nothing I had seen before. Thousands of them.
Lovely room on the ocean front. This place has several pools, daily activities, bike rentals, workout room, hot tubs, firepit, swings, beautiful HHI beach with handicap accessibility. Marriott treated us great; we will be back again.
Had we known that the West in was under construction before our arrival, we would have cancelled our week and gone to another resort. The constant, relentless construction noise commencing at 7 am was intolerable. Adding to this was a week of restricted parking due to line painting and seal coating of all parking areas prompting our early departure.
Marriott's Barony Beach Club is just great. The resort offers two-bedroom, spacious, comfortable, impeccably cleaned and maintained villas, an ocean-front location, consistent Marriott quality and service, and access to everything (beach, golf, tennis, airport (Hilton Head Island airport is about 5 minutes away from the resort, the resort is not on the flight path (so, no noise), and the airport is undergoing a runway expansion right now, so that the airport can accommodate jets within the next year), and restaurants; (shopping can range from Whole Foods, on one extreme, 5 minutes away, to Walmart, on another extreme, 5 minutes away). Marriott's Barony Beach Club has several pools (both indoor and outdoor), a good fitness center, kids programs and activities, and a rather non-descript spa, that it expensive, and nothing special. Our nightly rate was competitive with other high quality Hilton Head Island, two bedroom villa rentals, but this rate came with Marriott quality and conistency. There's a (Starwood) Westin hotel next door to Marriott's Barony Beach Club, I'm not sure what to expect of a potential relationship between the two, given Marriott's acquisition of Starwood Hotels. Marriott's Barriott Beach Club staff are Marriott staff, friendly, skiled, and professional. There's a casual restaurant on-site for lunch and dinner, check out the Y'all BBQ Burger. I can't think of anything that the management or staff of Marriott's Barony Beach Club can do better.
Our room was recently renovated, it is nice and spacious. I didn't like that they didn't have ice machines. Staff was friendly. Biggest complaint is that I Love the hotel overall but there are cockroaches everywhere and that scares me.
Arrived for a relaxing vacation and that's what I got. Just steps from the ocean, this location was perfect with spacious accommodations. The suite has everything you need in a home away from home. In true Marriott style, Barony Beach did not disappoint. It fits the need for every traveler. We look forward to returning next year.
While we were there for spring break, holiday week and golf tournament week - this resort on the north end of the island kept us away from the crowds. Beautiful resort~right on a beautiful section of the beach with bike rentals was perfect. Only negative pool bar needs to have a separate "kids" drink area; food area and put more staff on during "happy hour" very very slow service!
