“Top Notch!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2011

Can't say enough!!! So close to all area of the Jersey Shore. The staff was great...went above and beyond!! Can't say enough about Jane, Michael, Louise, and David. Activities were terrific..always something or someplace to go. Cape May 45 minutes away. Went to Smithville for jazz night and the winery with the bus tour...Dennis and Percey were great tour guides and so nice. AC is like 10 mins away so close. The villas were clean and so comfortable....can't say enough about the amenities....didn't want to leave! Can't wait to return!!!

Room Tip: Any villa seemed to be nice from the other guests we spoke with..we were on the third floor and we e...

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2011

Just spent a week at this resort. Accomadations are first class; clean, attentive staff and it's location is great if you frequent the casinos. I spent six days (10 hours a day) at the poker tables at Borgatta. Twice a year I treat myself to a week of poker. My choice is this resort instead of the confining casino rooms. With a villa, I have a lot of options, including inviting friends and relatives to share the week. On site resturants are very good. I have reservations to return to this resort 2 - 9 December 2011. If you frequent the casinos, you should consider this location as an option. Travel time from resort to a casino is 10 minutes.

Room Tip: My choice of buildings is the Congressional (ground floor).

Well maintained resort with friendly and helpful staff. Unit was spotless and made us feel right at home. Casual activities were fun.

The Pools are beautiful. There is one for adults only and one for kids. The location is terrific if you are planning to golf, otherwise it isnt near anything other than Pleasantville which is a smaller version of Camden. The rooms are spacious and have all the ammenties, but they were not clean. By the end of the day, our 10 month old's feet and hands looked like he was crawling around on a dirt floor for the day. The bathroom towels were definitely not washed prior to our arrival. While the staff was very accomodating in brining us a pac-n-play for our child, it had mold growing in it. After we noticed the mold, the staff quickly brought another which was perfectly clean. I just wish we didnt have to ask in the first place. If the place was cleaner, it would have been really nice. But it wasnt, so we were disappointed.

This was our first visit to the Fairway Villas resort, and were very happy that an excellent Marriott time share property was less than 2 hours from our home. SInce we have a 1 year old daughter, it is nice having a closer beach resort option than Hilton Head, SC. Although our vacation time was cut short due to Hurricane Irene, we still had a great time. We were pleasantly surprised by the pool area. Typical, to most Marriott resorts, the pool grill had a good, simple menu. The staff was very energetic, friendly, and helpful. Seemed like they always had different activities for the guests. My wife didn't have time to visit the Spa. The suites were great and very spacious. Only con of the trip is that we had to drive 40 minutes to get to Avalon and Stone Harbor. However, there are closer beaches. Nice to know that we have somewhere closer to stay if we decide to trade our St. Thomas week in the future.

Room Tip: Ask for the newest building.

We have been Marriott timeshare owners for several year. The Fairway Villas offer us a quiet place thats easy to get to and minutes from Atlantic City and just about 45 minutes from beautiful Cape May. We usually have housekeeping come in a few times because friends come down for a day or two. Bring lots of snacks and your own liquor - although there is a large grocery store about 10 minutes away.

Room Tip: We like to stay as close to the Red Door Salon as possible.

We had the choice of either staying here for a week, or at the Marriott Vacation Club property in Myrtle Beach. We assumed that the properties were similar, so we made the decision to stay here based solely on its location- driving 2 hours won over a 10 hour drive. However, we are kicking ourselves we didn't go to Myrtle Beach.

The pictures online of Marriott Fairway Villas at Seaview are deceptive. The pool is tiny. Really tiny. We saw pictures online of a beautiful cascade of water in the pool and never found it. The pool is something from the 1980s. Really old school pool. There is no onsite restaurant- only a tiny pool bar place that you have to walk inside to get to.

We are used to a well-stocked MarketPlace for quick groceries or pizza/sandwich to go... well, the MarketPlace here is actually a large closet with drinks and snacks like candy bars, etc. (think of what you'd see in a business hotel near check in) - really tiny.

The only plus is that the activities dept for the kids really went out of their way to have activities around the clock for the kids. They had relay races and smores by a campfire (between two buildings). They have some quality employees in that dept.

As far as the rooms go, they are much smaller than other Marriott Vacation Club vlllas and the finishes are not what you expect.

We will not be returning-- we love our Marriott Vacation Club properties that actually feel like a full service resort. This one felt like an afterthought.
