“Great Weekend Getaway for Us!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

Our family had booked a week but had to leave early so they let my girlfriend and I stay for the weekend they had already paid for. I had never stayed at a timeshare before so i did not know what to expect. Upon arrival I was blown away.

The grounds were beautifully landscaped and the buildings looked clean, and well maintained. There was a little construction going on in the parking lots but it wasn't an inconvenience. Our 2 bedroom villa was beautiful. We walked in to a full open kitchen and a nice living room area with a fireplace and flat screen TV. Everything was clean out updated and the furniture was comfortable. The second bedroom has 2 full beds we did not use along with plenty of space. The master suite had a huge and very comfortable king-sized bed along with a jacuzzi tub. Everything was clean and up to date.

We visited during the winter so we did not use the balcony but the balcony had a table and some chairs to watch out over the grounds with a bug net to keep the bugs out.

The Villa was a short drive from historic Smithville and Atlantic City which we spent the weekend exploring. The only downside was we only had a weekend to be there. We didnt have a chance to take advantage of all the amenities the place had to offer. Hopefully next time we will.

We spent a weekend at Fairway Villas, which was in a good location for us, since we wanted to explore as far south as Cape May (an hour away). The villa had two bedrooms, each with it's own bath. The master had a jucuzzi tub and the other had a queen-size sofabed. There is a full kitchen, with service for 8, a dining table with chairs and a banquette, a "living room" with a couch, a table, and a couple of chairs. There are TVs in the living room and both bedrooms. And, there's a screened porch just off the living room. The resort's outdoor pool was still open and in use. There's a spa, and gym available, as well as golfing. We were definitely happy with the accommodations and the location, and will go there again when we revisit that area.

We were here for the first time. We are longtime Vacation Club owners, but our ownership is in California. The villas are large and well appointed. The staff is extremely courteous and personable. We used Destination points here - well worth it.

We have been going to the Marriott's Fairway Villas for the last 5 years. The entire family goes and we end up renting out an entire floor. It's close to Atlantic City for the adults, and Ocean City if you want family fun. The staff is always very helpful and nice. They have activities for the children everyday.

Room Tip: If you don't want to hear people walking above you, choose the top floor. There are a lot of fa...

I helped a large group of people find this place for short 2-night stay local to the Atlantic City area. There were several events in AC that weekend and it was difficult to get decently priced rooms with secure parking (we were there for a car show). We had three 2-bedroom villas. The week leading up to our stay, the Fairway Villas sent me an email with a form to fill out regarding my preferences. My preferences were to have rooms further away from the entrance and somewhat closer together. Upon arriving, my choices were three rooms in building B (Breakers), or three rooms in three separate buildings. I opted for the 3 separate rooms since we had so many cars. You're only allowed to park two cars infront of the building to be fair to other guests. The overflow lot was anything beyond building F. Since one of the rooms was in building F, I figured that was the best option for us. The only bad thing about it was that there are so many speed bumps (I understand why they are there, it's just that some of the cars in our group are pretty low to the ground, making it difficult for some of the guys to maneuver around them).

Other than that, it was a comfortable stay and the people that worked with me to get us our keys and parking passes were very understanding. I really appreciated that.

Regarding the rooms, they were spacious and plenty of room for 6-8 people to stay in each room. The master bedroom features a king-sized bed, a jacuzzi tub, and bathroom, while the other bedroom has a king sized bed, and a queen-sized pull out couch. There is yet another queen sized-pull out in the living area. The kitchen area was convenient to have as well. Overall its a great place to stay for families or large groups.

Complaints: There was no garbage can in the kitchen. We found garbage bags under the sink but no garbage can. That was odd. The dishwasher didn't really work very well. It did a very poor job of cleaning the dishes and we had to run the cycle 3 times (I don't even know if the dishes were clean after the 3rd cycle, I gave up on checking). The hairdryer in the Master bedroom did not work at all.

This is a very nice facility only 15 miles west of Atlantic City. Currently has about 5 villa buildings, 3 stories each, with room for 3 more buildings in future development.
A long dirveway in leads to property which is wrapped with a golf course, driving range, walking trail, tennis and basketball courts making it a quiet stay away from the city.
The adult pool is nice and relaxing but is really a wading pool rather than lap pool, which is a separate pool, located a short distance away. Next to the large pool is a small softball field played with plastic bats… a big hit with kids and families!
The villa design is nice and open, but lack a computer table, which could be placed at the end of the kitchen counter. Also we had no ceiling fan in our room which is hot with pillow-top bed and down comforter. Many doors and kitchen cabinets squeaked and 1st floor arbor trim is rotting showing lack of minor maintenance. There was cigarette smoke in one elevator, but could not tell if it was an employee, subcontractor, or visitor. However, the villas are nice, clean, and smoke free.
For things to “see & do”, try the Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge just a few miles north. The refuge has 47,000 acres of preserved wetlands used as part of the Atlantic flyway for bird migration. There is an eight-mile driveway, which is very nice to take early in the morning or late in the evening. Look to see Skimmers, Oystercatchers, Atlantic Brants, Glossy Ibis, Red-winged blackbirds, Ospreys, Egrets, Swans, and many other birds. The visitor center has a nice movie to watch, programs, and clean rest rooms.

Room Tip: Upper rooms are best due to running feet.
