This resort is located in a great location with excellent access to the beach. For those who are interested, the gay beach is just a short walk down the shoreline. The pool areas are comfortable and well-appointed, and beach chairs and towels are provided for the hotel's ocean access. My room was comfortable and clean, but I have experienced more luxurious Marriott properties. Staff was generally very professional and friendly, whether suggesting itineraries, giving directions or providing food and beverage. Next time I would probably pay the extra money for a full ocean view. The partial view was pretty slim. The lobby bar served its purpose to get a late snack or drink, but the main drag in front of the hotel is jammed with great drinking and dining options. Old San Juan is a short taxi ride away and well worth the visit. Overall, the Marriott was a very satisfactory vehicle to experience beach-front San Juan.
