We usually stay in Starwood hotels as we are SPG members, so this was our first time at a Marriott resort. I received 3 calls and 2 emails prior to our trip wanting a slew of information from me regarding the reason for my trip, any special occasions (birthday) and my estimated arrival time which I said 1pm. We arrived at 1.10 pm and were told our room was not ready so we went for a walk and grabbed a drink. No big deal. Check in time is stated at 4pm so we went back and were told our room would not be available until 5pm. Now I was pissed. We have never had to wait for room check in at an SPG hotel and to top it all off, the front desk staff were very rude and ill-mannered. Why ask me three times what time I will be arriving if you cannot even honor the 4pm rule??? Also, worth mentioning is that the concierge was really hard to get ahold of - we went to the front desk 4 times in 2 days and she was never there. And the bike rental guy is the most miserable person in the world - not sure what his problem was but he should not be in the hospitality business. The friendliest guy on staff that we met worked at the entryway to the resort - always smiling, friendly and most importantly sincere - all the other staff members could learn a thing or two from that guy! It is worth noting that the rooms are wonderful and despite it raining the first couple of days, we did manage to have a good time. Just not what I was expecting from a category 8 hotel.
They have made a lot of updates on the property in the last year, the rooms look great! The kitchens are well sticked and if you are missing something like a mixer to make a cake they will bring you a mixer. The mater bath is very large with a huge shower, although my wife misses the big tub. The new TVs are bigger and we enjoyed watching Wimbledon during a couple showers. There are a lot of activities even more than usual. Especially exercise activities. We had fun competing in several. They also have board games you can check out for free! The staff is always friendly and helpful and we look forward to our next visit.
Beach access great, rooms clean, large and comfortable; kitchen adequately stocked; beds very comfortable; good resort activities. Check in stall aexceptional friendly and helpful. Rooms ending in --47 have extended balcony in Live Oaks building.
We stayed in a 2 bedroom suite at the Barony Beach Club in June 2017. It was our first time in Hilton Head Island, and had great assistance in making dinner reservations around the island. Quiet room and quiet spot on the island on a great beach. Pool area is nice, too!
What a great place. We had a 2 bedroom overlooking the ocean with spectacular views. The staff would go out of their way to be helpful. The beach was just steps away complete with umbrella's and chairs to rent. The poolside bar was great and the food was pretty good overall. I would highly recommend that if you are looking for beach time, this is your place. Great golf package as well.
For 17 years in a row, we have stayed at least one week per year at Barony Beach. Our grandsons have essentially, grown up at BB, spending a week each year there; usually spending two weeks per summer at Barony Beach. Our time there with the families, and especially for the grandsons, will have life long memories of HHI. Barony Beach has made several changes since last year and the vast majority of those changes have been improvements. The daily programs had something of interest for the 9 year old, the teenagers and the adults. Nettie has even more tours of HHI, and they were all very interesting. The teens took time off from skimming to participate in the ping pong tournament and the youngster had to be limited on his activities because there was something always he wanted to do. The overall cleanliness is back to the normal Barony Beach high standards. The staff has always been very pleasant, and the concierge group has arranged for discounts at even more restaurants. We ate very well and usually at a discounted price. Barony Beach is a very pleasant place to spend a week or two on Hilton Head Island.
We had a wonderful stay at Barony Beach Club. Everything was amazing. The staff was extremely accomodating especially with some health problems. The only thing that made a negative impact on our stay was the leaf blower. It is so extremely loud and we would have to move or stay based on where the leaf blower was. What is wrong with using a nice quiet broom? The leaf blower was used daily even right outside the rooms even when the walkways were emaculate. Pros: Great Craft Activities for the kids (sand sculpting, ceramics) Indoor pool was fantastic the air wasn't hot and stuffy and no chemical smell. Loved the multiple hot tubs Excellent condos with beach towels and plenty of dishwasher detergent comfortable beds great bar by front pool Comfortable lounge chairs waterslide CONS: Leaf Blower!!! Smoking spots on back pathways
We are owners at the Marriott Barony Beach Club. I am glad to see the improvements this year as they are were needed. The appliances are now stainless steel in the kitchen and much more quiet.The biggest improvement is the washer and dryer.There a many activites offered during the day and many times there is music playing during the day at the oceanside pool.The musicians they hire are wonderful. My only complaint is several families throw balls in the pool and it is kind of hard to swim around.In the two weeks we were there you can count on getting hit by a ball when swimming.The second week we went up the the pool outside near the front of the development which many times there were just a few people there. They also have another pool called the wetlands that has a water slide and nice water attractions. They also have a fourth pool that is indoor and is nice when you want to get out of the sun or if there is a rainy day.They have a nice place to get food at the ocean side pool called Ya Alls. I think the prices for the food are reasonable however the mixed frozen drinks are a bit pricy. I was reading some of the other reviews and someone wrote about that they did not like the Marriott's high pressure sales pitch.So agreed, so just don't do it. We too have done it in the past and frankly it just ruins a vacation day.It is just not worth it. We the exception of the sales staff I can't say enough kind words about the other staff at the Marriott they are there to help and to make your vacation pleasurable. Family friendly resturants that we enjoy are the Old Oyster Factory, Crazy Crab and New York City Pizza.
We love staying at the Marriott Barony Beach Club and have stayed there many times over the years (twice this year). It has a great location in Port Royal right next door to the Westin. The pool is fun and right on the beach. The rooms were recently renovated and very nice.
We stayed here for a week in June. We usually do not vacation in the summer months, but this was wonderful. The resort was clean and beautiful. Many activities daily, and everyone wanting to help make your stay wonderful. Used the spa for mani/pedi and they were very accommodating and reasonably priced. One of the highlights was the on site dinner Low Country boil. Amazing food and plentiful. The service from Grant was amazing, such a respectful and delightful young man. Also thanks to Mary C the hostess she was so pleasant and charming. Again, we were not pleased with the high pressure Marriott sales pitch at the presentation or the attitude of the saleswomen and her Team Leader. We had a wonderful day of golf at Dolphin Head golf course. The course was in great shape and great for my level of skill. We will be returning to the Barony for another stay in the future.
