When we arrived late (and tired/exhausted) on a Friday due to late flight and then having to rent car to come from Orlando, our room was not Ocean Front as expected and agent told us we had to request that at time of booking but I went through booking again and there is no-where to do that. They then promised us an Ocean Front room by Monday and when we called Sat & Sun to make sure it was still on, no one returned our call. Then my wife called and tried to be patient and polite and she got the run-around that no one ever promised us that and to make a long story short, I had to cll and not be so polite and we finally got the room changed. Then the Sat after we got there (the day after we arrived) my 3 yr old daughter came to me with something she found, a piece of glass she picked off the floor somewhere, but luckily she did not cut herself and there was mold around the air conditioning vent. Another problem we had was with the replacement of towels/linens where we had to keep calling to get anything done. On top of all of that, this is the first place I went on vacation via our time share and Interval where I did not get a free parking spot, only owners at that specific hotel got free parking. Parking was ridiculous, expensive, and very small/cramped spaces. From our experience, we will not be staying at that hotel again, that I assure you, maybe not in another Marriot.
The hotel was beautiful, with a gorgeous pool and workout center and sufficient amenities at each (i.e. enough gym equipment at fitness center and ample chairs at the pool). The staff is friendly and it is in an ideal location. If you are bringing a car just be warned that it costs $17 a day to park there, but in light of the lack of parking in the area, this is a good deal!
Great location; right off the beach as well as things to do at night.
wasn't as clean as I expected--bathroom was in poor shape
Maintenance fees are too high. Does not offer free wi-fi.
Nice location next to the beach and resturants. The rooms where ok quality. It was nice to have a kitchen in the room.
pool too small, bar at pool never open, elevators are very slow. they dont have enough luggage carts.
