We own a timeshare at Marriott Streamside at Vail and when we do not use it exchange for Marriott points or exchange with II. This stay was for one night for points before checking into our week exchange at Royal Caribbean. The hotel was Gorgeous and well appointed. We had a standard view room, and although it overlooked a courtyard, when you stepped onto the patio there was a beautiful view of the ocean. The pool was magnificent and the only possible negative aspect was there was very little beachfront.
The JW Marriott was the subject of much discussions on this board and the Casa Magna was apparently equally missing its beach. Since we were there only one day it wasn't an issue, but if we'd stayed a week it would have been a problem.
However, when we moved to the RC we had the same beach situation... very little. From the time we arrived in Cancun we also noticed FOR THE FIRST TIME ever a wonderul trade wind off the ocean that provide an incredibly fabulous environment on the beach, pool and later in the evening. Our concierge told us that the unusual winds also decimated the sand deposits for the beach. About Wednesday the wind stopped and the typical HOT HOT HOT of Canucn resumed, AND the sandy beach returned in just ONE day, Personally I preferred the breeze . We are going to Aruba in June and are definitely looking forward to that experience.
Even though we were there one day/night, I felt the hotel was first class and beautifully appointed. We absolutely loved our room on the pool level that felt like being a part of a large hacienda. Would absolutely recommend this resort.
