My husband, college-age daughter & I were there 3/17 - 3/25/05 and I do don't know what the previous reviewers were complaining about. Everything was wonderful from the express check-in to when we checked out. The staff was extremely attentive, the food was great at the breakfast buffet and Champions. Every where we went on the resort property we were always asked by a staff member 'is everything ok, is there anything we can get for you'. I've never stayed anyplace where the staff was as attentive as they are here! The deli also has a nice selection. The business center is great - 30 pesos for 15 minutes of internet. Our room was cleaned every day and fresh towels brought most evenings. The room was initially musty smelling, we called and not sure what they did, but the odor was gone when we returned from dinner the first day. The beach area is also fantastic and the waves were big enough for my husband to play in everyday. The pool is - well just look at the pictures on the Marriott website - it is beautiful and the beach towels they provide are thick and large.
It's definetely worth it to walk to the Marina area as there are a number of great restaurants - Porta Bella, La Terraza di Roma, Victor's. There's also a great ice cream shop - Busimmios (not sure of spelling) and the shopping is wonderful too in the Marina area. Save yourself some money and buy your bottled water at the little grocery store in the marina - to the left when you enter - as it's around 82 cents for the big bottle vs. $7 at the Marriott. There also is a Wal-mart and Sam's Club a 30 pesos cab ride away.
We did have to get up at 7 am to get the chairs we wanted by the side of the pool but the hotel was also at 100% capacity the later part of our stay. It wasn't a big deal as we'd just go back to sleep for awhile. The construction noise was not that noticable so I don't know what people were complaining about. We loved it so much we plan on returning again next year. Would definetely recommend this resort.
