The resort is at the northern tip of Phuket and is at least an hour drive away from town (longer during peak hours). It's located on a long strip of perfect, uncrowded beach - and is far removed from the bustle & sleaze of Patong & other beaches in Phuket.
We stayed in a 2 bedroom service apartment - which was really comfortable, well equipped & maintained to standards one would expect of the Marriott. The hotel is perfect for families with kids who want an all inclusive experience without getting out of the resort. People who want to explore Phuket should think of somewhere closer to town. There are three great, but overpriced, restaurants on the property. Turtle village complex which adjoins the hotel has equally good restaurants & a pub which charge a fraction of the price, and you never have to leave the hotel premises. For lovers of Thai food, Kindee restaurant (run by a well known local chef) nearby delivers the most authentic & reasonably priced meal to your apartment for the price of a single dish at the Marriott. Similarly, if you take a short walk on the beach that fronts the hotel, you'll come across a collective run by women who work at hotel spas in the area. They offer exceptional massages on the beach with waves breaking all around you for 400 baht - compared with 2000+ baht you'd pay for the same massage at the hotel spa. The Marriott has a great gym, swimming pool & concierge service and the grounds are lush with tropical foliage.
We were invited by Marriott on a 4 day / 3 night stay which gave us a 2 bedroom service apartment free, with the only requirement being that we sit through a 90 min presentation on Marriott time share, and possibly buy into it. The time share deal turned out to be not worth it, and the Marriott sales reps were professional about a refusal with no fuss whatsoever.
