The Best Marriott Resort Beach Condos on Hilton Head Island (June 2021)

Family-Friendly, Luxurious, and Fun Beach Condos
Hilton Head Island is a terrific place for a family vacation or any type. No matter how young or old your kids are, Hilton Head offers plenty of activities for kids and adults alike. From the beach to swimming pools to golf or tennis, and putt-putt, dining, shopping, and dolphin cruises and zip line adventures, there's no shortage of reasons to visit this amazing beach destination on the Atlantic Coast of South Carolina. Hilton Head also makes a great multi-generational family vacation spot, as many families come with the grandparents or with multiple families traveling together.

I've been to Hilton Head many times, as I have grown up visiting the island every year since I was a kid. And now that I have a family of my own, my reasons for coming are still the same, although I have a different perspective on travel.

Marriott's Barony Beach Club
In my experience, some of the best places to stay for families with kids of any age on Hilton Head island are the Marriott Resorts. And yes, there are several of these fantastic and well-designed resorts on Hilton Head that are operated by the Marriott. And no, they are not just hotels, as you will soon see. All of the places we have described below are actually condo-style resorts where the accommodations are in the form of full condominiums with nice kitchens, multiple bedrooms, bathrooms, and living rooms. They also have in-room laundry machines, balconies, and a number of other niceties.

And these resorts also have fantastic beach front locations along with swimming pools, on-site restaurants, kids activities, grills, bar service, and more. So, as you can see, these resorts are a fantastic way to enjoy a trip to Hilton Head because you'll be able to relax, enjoy your time at the beach and the pool, and stay at a safe and comfortable place during your next beach vacation.

Furthermore, it can often be hard to figure out how and where to book a condo at these resorts, as most of them are part of a timeshare program (the Marriott Vacation Club). It's actually possible to book many of them from private owners and property managers on VRBO. It's also sometimes possible to book them directly from Marriott's website, but the availability here seems to be limited in our experience unless you're already a member. Either way, we've provided the relevant links below.

Marriott's Barony Beach Club

This place is gorgeous. Located on the northern "heel" side of the island near Port Royal Plantation, this fun and relaxing resort sits right on the beach offers a number of luxurious and relaxing 2-bedroom condos, most of which have oceanfront balconies or ocean view balconies.

In the center you'll find several swimming pools, some of which are perfect for kids of all ages. There's a splash pad area for the little ones, a pool with a water slide for the kids, and a larger pool in the front by the beach. You'll also find several hot tubs, as well as an indoor pool.

The resort also offers an exercise room, the Namaste Spa, a kid's activity center, a bar, a restaurant, fire pits, shuffleboard, various lounge areas, and more.

The location is close to golf and tennis at Port Royal Plantation, too. It's also close to plenty of shopping areas, restaurants, and activities throughout the island.

This one is popular, and for several good reasons. It's located in a central area of the island near Shelter Cove, but situated right on the beach. So by staying here you'll be close to plenty of shops and restaurants.

The resort is full of luxurious 2-bedroom condos featuring nice kitchens, large living rooms, and balconies overlooking the beautiful lagoon that wraps its way around the resort.

One swimming pool sits right in the middle of the resort along with a pool bar and casual restaurant. Another pool is down by the beach, too. And a third is indoors so you can swim any time of the year. Several hot tubs are also found around the property.
