Marriott's Barony Beach Club

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

First time staying at this Marriott after several stays on the island. Had stayed primarily on the south end of the island before, now Barony on the north end. Opened up a whole new world to us. Great restaurants close by and for those night you do not want to leave, you have Lydia and Colton at All Y'alls bar and grill on property. The food is good and reasonably priced. Great service offered by Lydia and Colton. Lots of activities and wonderful beach front. We will be back!

We stayed at the Barony Beach Club for four weeks. Very nice accommodations with a kitchen well stocked for cooking. Bathrooms are very nice, and furnishing are comfortable. Each week they have plenty of activities if you find yourself needing something to do. We participated in water aerobics, a trip to Bluffton, Casino Night, a Wine and Cheese get together, and Margarita night. They also have an astronomer on Monday evening and magician who puts on a very entertaining show. The only thing we did have issues with was the WiFi. We would repeatedly loose our connection and have to resign in to the network. They have been doing some renovations, so I don’t know if this is causing the issue. We enjoyed our stay and would return.

I stay here when Surf Watch is not available. It is better for adults because it is much closer to the ocean. The bar/restaurant is open year round which makes it nice when you want a quick snack or adult beberage.

We have stayed at the Barony a number of times and have found it clean, interesting and fun! Friendly and attentive staff with answers and suggestions. The rooms are spacious and well taken care of. At the time the resort is close to its finishing its upgrade. If you are Marriott points owner, I would recommend the Barony. If you are a weeks owner, I remind you that you an stay anywhere I the area and still use the facilities at the Barony.

An absolutely fantastic time-share property. Front desk had excellent communication regarding questions prior to our trip. Check-in was quick and friendly, as was the check-out. At registration Bridget picked up on a comment about our 20th Anniversary and sent a gift to our room. Tina, at the concierge desk, assisted twice with helpful information and valuable restaurant coupons. Lydia, in “All Y’alls” was helpful with information and getting us fed on our first night. The unit was outstanding, spacious, and with a pleasant garden view - I didn’t miss the ocean view I requested. We spent three days driving to Charleston, one day in Savannah, and two days walking the beach. We appreciated the fact there was no “Time Share Sale” pressure tactic here. This is by far the best maintained property we have “traded” for. We definitely plan to return! Enjoy!

We spent a week in Hilton Head Island unfortunately the weather didn’t completely cooperate however we had a great time at the beautiful resort. We had two rooms Oceanside for 12 of us and the rooms were very spacious and well decorated. The staff was very helpful and friendly, everything we asked for they helped us with. The resort is close to everything and right on the beach there are multiple hot tubs pools etc. I would go back for sure. Special mention to Katie the front desk manager who went out of her way to make sure we had a great time.

My wife and I stayed at Barony Beach Club during the last week of December, 2017. It had been a couple of years since we had last stayed in Hilton Head and during that visit, we stayed at Marriott’s Grand Ocean, which is a few miles south of Barony Beach Club. We arrived at about 3:30 PM on Friday and check-in was relatively quick and smooth. Sharon was a trainee, but she quickly assigned us a villa. Unfortunately, the villa was on the fourth floor. Normally, this wouldn’t be an issue, but my wife doesn’t take elevators and I had requested a first-floor villa during three separate occasions prior to our arrival. I was told that this request wouldn’t be a problem, so I was surprised when there was a mix-up. We were reassigned a first-floor room, but it was a handicap villa. The décor of our villa was beautiful and my wife commented that it was the best layout of any Marriott Vacation Club resort that we’d ever visited. This includes resorts in Orlando, South Florida, Las Vegas, California and Hilton Head Island. There was Wi-Fi in the villa and nice televisions with numerous channel options. The resort had several planned activities for both adults and children, including movies, a welcome breakfast, arts and crafts as well as adult activities like blackjack, casino night, etc. The week before we arrived, there were planned tours of the area, including Savannah, Bluffton and winery tours. Barony Beach Club also has a nice fitness center, with several treadmills, elliptical trainers, free weights and a few weight machines. There is also a full-service spa on-site. We didn’t go to the on-site restaurant, All Y’all’s, but the menu looked good and it was consistently busy. With the resort having easy access to the beach, we watched the sunrise before heading to the fitness center to work out. There is also on-site bike rentals for a nominal fee. Overall, the resort is excellent with a very friendly staff. My only complaints were the issue with getting the requested room and also I felt that the Wi-Fi was extremely slow. Being in a handicap room, we only had one sink in the bathroom, which wasn’t horrible, but could have been avoided.

Barony is a great vacation spot for the family, even during the winter since there is a large indoor pool and a smattering of activities, not to mention biking on the many trails and walking on the beach (but not swimming, brrr). The villas are large and pleasant. Only objection is to the bathroom arrangement in the smaller bedroom (which sleeps four). The washing area is fully exposed to the sleeping area, so that anyone who goes to sleep later or wakes up earlier, necessarily wakes everyone else up. The toilet/shower area is separated from the sleeping area with a large “barn door” (what are we, horses?) that keeps neither light nor sound from intruding into the sleeping area. The barn door itself is heavy and noisy. In sum, unless everyone goes to sleep and wakes up at exactly the same time, the bathroom arrangement is disturbing to all, not to mention the loss of privacy and dignity of having a partly open bathroom exposes to others. The person who designed the washroom/bathroom area either has never stayed with anyone in a hotel room or has a bizarre sense of humor. Other than that limitation I would recommend staying at Marriott’s Barony Beach for a small family.

We were in the back, so there was no ocean view, but the suite was spacious and everything sparkled. Marriott offers daily activities and a variety of venues can be visited for a minimal fee. It saves driving, parking and includes the cost of admission. In winter it was a great way to get around.

Marriott Barony Beach Club property is known for its grand beach view; we could see sunrise during the early dawn from our Master bedroom, which is an on suite when weather permits visibility. We anticipated the highest standards of vacation experiences and their Staff delivered it. Although our arrival time was 10pm with minor delay, we received warm welcome without pushy property Sales Agent. Within minutes when exploring the villas, we've noticed the interior designers made sure that the décor embraced South Carolina's unique historical site of the Harbor Town lighthouse right in the living room/dining wall. Our two children had access to indoor/outdoor pool, activity center gaming, along with Y'all cafe's refreshment while playing sand by the beach. We enjoyed outdoor BBQ grill, The nearby golf course is quite pleasant even during Thanksgiving week. Shopping centers were conveniently located. We read from local magazine and visited a few nice restaurants. Although we didn't try their full-service spa, the span of coverage are broad. Business center is petite, with two desktop PC. Strolling along the garden, and lying down to read at their patio lounge sofas with styles, and playing shuffle boarding set the tone for family to enjoy quiet time or pass time. We enjoyed Sports watch at the activity center; thanks to their hospitality. With hors d'oeuvres, wine cheese in our hands, thumb up. What a pleasant surprise which is presented only through Marriott's resort not our home resort at Westgate. If you are pet-master, consider leaving your fur-friend at a nearby pet-hotel, and enjoy exploring this resort. Although they do not have a tennis court, their sister property does, if desire to swing by. The parking garage occupies the ground level adding a sense of security not to mention when rain poured, we'd stay dry. We'd definitely plan on returning to this resort in the near future if it becomes available for owner-exchange through Interval International.
