Marriott's Barony Beach Club is home to spacious two-bedroom villas with garden, oceanfront, or oceanside views. The resort's Port Royal Plantation area location is just minutes from all that Hilton Head has to offer. Due to the size of this beachfront property, access to the beach from some buildings may require a short walk. Each villa includes a private balcony, whirlpool tub, fully equipped kitchen, utility room with washer/dryer, and living and dining areas. Guests can enjoy four private pools, three whirlpool spas, putting green, shuffleboard courts, and barbecue grills. Marriott's Barony Beach Club also features a world-class spa and convenience store.

As owners we travel to Barony Beach in Hilton Head often. We have visited nearly 92% of all Marriott timeshares in the U.S. We most recently visited Barony Beach the week in late February, 2013. We experience "nearly perfect weather."
Barony Beach is a very small Marriott property in Hilton Head. This is an oceanfront property; although the dense canopy of trees will obscure the Atlantic view for many owners and guests. Seems the perfect holiday during January through May. Clientele is mostly adults , and adult couples. This is not a venue for swinging singles. The primary artery 278 is often clogged by stoplights although, locales advised us that the nearly 3 million summer and golf tournament visitors really do suffer gridlock. Barony Beach is much too small to employ activities directors, but front desk staff and maintenance staff are first rate.
Nearby Publix, and the new Kroger, commercial establishments, and 200+ restaurants provide the necessary creature comforts. The local Landrys restaurant, Chart House provides white table and waterfront ambience. Savannah is the local airport and rental cars are necessary (as with most resorts.) We always overnight the first night or two in Savannah for the historical and cultural pleasures as well as to dine at the Olde Pink House. Be cautious of the speed trap (Bluffton) and be certain to visit Beaufort for dining and a delightful small town visit. We avoid the summer hoards as well as the golfing tournaments. It is an easy beach walk between Barony Beach and Surf Watch. Barony Beach has superb trading power, resale and rental opportunity (use Redweek and not Marriott.)
Be warned: The Garden Units have a zero view of the Atlantic and are very close to the Westin. If you are a Marriott owner, request an Ocean View unit. The whole concept of Beach Front is the Atlantic Ocean!
Barony Beach has added a terrible energy saver, that disables the A/C. The new HD flatscreens and HD channels are appreciated.
Consistent condo maintenance prevents this property from growing long in the tooth. Hilton Head provides numerous resources for the outdoors person. The discriminating epicurean may require some research of restaurants. If it looks like a kid place, a sports bar, a fast food chain, a tourist trap, avoid wasting your time on a poor meal. The Barony Beach staff just does not know the restaurant scene, and neither do the tourists.
As Barony Beach owners for several years, we have several requirements for lunch and dinner restaurants. Great service, interesting and great meals, ambience, and presentation are well worth top dollar.

Family and I stayed at the Barony the week of 7/20/13 thru 7/27/13. This was our first time satying at the Barony and the first time visiting Hilton Head Island. Comparing the Barony to other higher end places we have stayed along the Atlantic coast Hilton Heand and the Barony has been one of the Best!! From the time we checked in to the time we left the staff made our stay as comfortable as possible. I was actually shocked how well attentive the staff was during our stay. We had an oceanfront room which had great views of the ocean from every window and balcony. I also liked the view of the main pool area from our balcony. If my wife went down before me or vise versa we could look out to see where they were sitting. The garden area was very nice. If you do not care about an ocean view you will not mind the garden view. They have a shuffle board, corn toss and a small pavillion area which has 8 very nice gas grills. If you are a family that plans to cook in a few nights and like grilling you will be very pleased with the grills on location. By the main pool the resort had a bar and grill called All Yall's. They serve drinks of all kinds and several good menu items. I was pleased with everything I ate or drank from the Bar. The prices to me were also in line for what you would pay at a local bar grill. One thing we were a little disapointed about was the Wetlands pool area. The pool area was very nice especially if you have a todller. The issue we had was the slide height requirements of 48". Our son was 47 3/4" and they refused to let him on the slide. He is 6 years old and we have been to many water parks that he went on slides that were 5 to 6 stories high but for whatever reason the life gaurds would not let him go down. We tried to reason with them but the life guards would not budge. If you have your kids have their hearts set on utilizing the slide make sure they measure 48". My family and I really enjoyed our vacation at the Barony and cannot wait to go back next year!

Stayed here the first week of June for 5 nights in the Bayberry Building with a Courtyard View. We found the location to be excellent as well as the cleanliness and friendliness of the staff. I used my Reward Points for the stay so did not pay anything. The only negative thing I have to say (which is not the resort's fault) is that the buildings by the beach are quite close together, so there is not much of a view if you are looking at the Courtyard because you see the cornhole toss, shuffle board and the grilling area as well as the building on the other side. Good if you are into people watching. If you don't have an ocean view then the garden section across the street behind the Weston with the new pool area has a better view, but then you are father from beach. But they constantly run shuttles and the walk isn't that far. We were fine with the building we were in because it was half way between the beach and the garden pool.
The new pool area in the garden section is beautiful and perfect for children with a zero entry and many water features. Unfortunately, the new slide was rather pathetic. My son 9 yrs old went down it twice and didn't go on it again. Very slow. There were no kids on the slide, so I guess they felt the same. Also my 4 yr old daughter did not meet the 48" height requirement so ended up crying because she could not go on it. Even though she went down most waterslides that were faster at the Disney water parks. Not sure what Marriott based their slide requirements on.
None of these things bothered us, and we had a wonderful stay overall. Bottom line is that it is a lovely resort with nice amenities and a beautiful beach. One of the best things about the resort is that it had men's and women's locker rooms so on check out day we were able to shower and get dressed after a full day at the beach.
We did stay at the SurfWatch in June of 2012 and preferred it over the Barony because the buildings were more spread out and had more of a nature view of marshes and ponds and ocean. Just a personal preference I suppose.

I have to comment on the posting by the gentleman who flys into Savannah each year. He stated there is no activity director at the Barony. I don't know whether that's the case or not, but I do know for a fact this resort has planned activities every single day for various age groups. Perhaps my experience differs from his because I've stayed at Barony only from Memorial Day week until the week after Labor Day. But in this time period there are all sorts of activities planned by the staff at Barony, from free ones like margaritas with chips and salsa for adults, to playing Texas Holdem (another adult activity but with a fee), to making ice cream sundaes, necklaces from beads, picture frames with shells and tie dye t-shirts. I've done all of these activities (and many others) at Barony, some with my husband or grown daughters, and many with grandchildren at different ages. And we've found the concierge at Barony can be quite helpful with suggestions for restaurants - we enjoyed most she suggested. But we've not expecting places with great gourmet food (although I'm sure there are many in Hilton Head), but generally enjoy a bit simpler restaurant when we're at the beach. My daughters and I also enjoy the many, many wonderful consignment shops to be found on the island - we get 'finds' at great prices, and benefit local non-profits in the process. My husband, son and daughters enjoy golf, and often take advantage of checking the last minute golf options to be found online. Hilton Head is fun for all of us. And the Barony is a really nice resort, a great place for a laid back vacation, the reason we go to the beach.
