My husband and two young children (ages 4 and 6) decided to take a week long leisure vacation this summer. Despite the conflicting reviews, I booked this resort for its views and Marriott loyalty. On the same day of our arrival, I regret my decision. We were given Morning Star room 5523 but requested to pay for an upgrade in... More

I want to thank a Leah, the front desk manager, for making our trip much more enjoyable. Leah you are excellent example of true customer service. Myrtle at Coco Joes was wonderful. Ask for her when eating at this establishment. Yvonne was great too. We looked forward to seeing her everyday. Dee at the pool bar was awesome. The above... More

My wife and I spent 5 nights at the resort in late July. Staff was extremely friendly and very helpful with any questions or issues you may have addressed immediately. We stayed in the Cliff Towers 4th floor, which had a view east at the Morningstar Beach and tennis courts. It was not a bad view but if you are... More

This hotel felt like a Carnival Cruise. Masses of people in the pool, on the beach, waiting to be seated at restaurants, waiting in the buffet line. The difference is that the cruise would be staffed up to handle the throngs and this hotel is not. This is down season here. I would hate to be here in high season.... More

This was a good place to stay for out honeymoon. At first we had the morning star. Blegh. We spoke with Juandella, and she helped us find a room at the Frenchman's Reef location. It was a bit more but well worth it. Spiral staircase, king bed, tub spa, shower, dual sink, an extra bathroom downstairs, and couch and balcony.... More
