My husband and I just spent six days at this location. We chose to stay at the Marriott since it was centrally located to all the snorkeling beaches in the island. The guest services are impeccable and the staff is caring and friendly. The public areas make you feel you are in paradise. Great snorkeling right off their beach, relaxing beach, beautiful pool area. However, the guest rooms and bathrooms do need updating. We had an ocean view room. The room and the bathroom were spacious and comfortable, but they showed wear-and-tear with a 1990's Holiday Inn vibe.
On our first night there, we dined in Portofino Restaurant. Perhaps since it's off season they did not have their best menu but we found the food to be standard large hotel chain fare.
Regarding location, it is an easy shot from the airport and centrally located to go snorkeling around the island. But, even though it is only a 5-10 minute drive from Willemstad, there are few restaurant choices around the Piscadera Bay area. Definitely rent a car.
