“Great Fun for Everyone”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2011

This place was quiet and relaxing, and spacious. The staff, especially Perrie the Concierge, and Christa the 1st Mate were outstanding. The Ft Myers Beach Shuttle and Dolphin Cruise are not to be missed- and are included in your regular hotel rate/activity fee.
There is a nice park within jogging distance, and we rode their free bikes almost every day. We also checked out tennis equipment every day and played across the street. The kids and pre-teen in our group loved their own flat screen TV, and Dad loved the marina.
Can't go wrong with this place. Fun for all! Thank you for the relaxing vacation!

My friends and I stayed at this hotel for our Mama's Only trip (no kids and no husbands! =). The hotel suite was AMAZING! We had 6 women total and had a two bedroom suite (1 king bed & 2 full size beds w/ 2 bathrooms). It was a perfect size for our group. We got our hotel at a HUGE discount on jetsetter.com so we didn't mind that it was on the marina. We would have loved to be at the beach but when it's a great deal, you can give up a few things. They also have 3 pools which made up for it.

This hotel has 3 pools (one of which is a lap pool). The 1st one is right behind the hotel and it's always very busy. It's very close to the restaurant and you can get drinks and food while you lay out. We stayed at this pool the 1st day because from our room, we couldn't see any other pool. On the 2nd day, I asked about the other two pools. We were told they were just a short walk away. I'm SOO glad we asked! The other two pools were HUGE! and only a handful of people there. It seemed like we had the pools all to ourselves! We stayed at those pools for the remainder of the trip. Also, near the other pools, the wind doesn't blow as bad as near the pool by the hotel. There were also tennis courts for anyone who wanted to play.

The only three downsides of hotel were 1st) a member of our group left her iPhone in the public womens restroom inside the hotel near the pool. When she remembered about 30 mins later, she went back and it was gone. We contacted hotel security and to no avail, they didn't have ANY cameras near that area. Hard to believe since it was right near an exit, elevators, the pool, the gym, etc. We were extremely disappointed but what can you do. The 2nd was the hotel restaurant, Marker 92, was horrible! The dynamite shrimp was DRENCHED in spicy mayo that was inedible it was so spicy (and I LOVE spicy food). The sushi was also lacking very much. One of the girls had a pasta dish that tasted soapy. The 3rd and last thing was just a slight thing. The beds are a bit hard so your neck might be a little sore the next day. Only half the girls experienced this. Just depends how hard/soft you like your bed.

Also, the free wifi is not available in the suites/rooms. Only in the main lobby and pool. It was also very hard to connect to the wifi even at those locations. They do have a business center with a few computers for you to check email/print out boarding passes.

Room Tip: If you can get it at a huge discount its worth it!

We enjoyed our 6 day stay here. The rooms and resort were top notch, the pool is good, and the staff is completely helpful. The only complaint I have is the pillows were terrible. For as great as everything else at the place is, I'm surprised the pillows were something out of a Motel 6.....but hey, if that's the only thing I can complain about the room it must be a pretty darn good place. Depending on what you are doing in the area, the location may not be the greatest. It took us over 30-45 minutes to get anywhere (Ft. Myers Beach, Sanibel, spring training ball parks, etc). Since we were in town mostly for baseball, it made it kind of a pain. One thing to keep in mind - there is NO wireless internet above the 2nd floor so bring a network cable since there is a jack in the room. We each made 2 visits to the spa - the first time the service was pleasant, the environment was relaxing and we were incredibly satisfied. The second trip was the opposite - not so friendly, not quite relaxing, and pretty disappointed. I'm not sure we would go back there but the one good visit was great.....

We stayed at the Marina Village again this year because of the wonderful time we had last year. We had a very good time, but this time we saw some flaws in the armor. We showed up early on the day of check in and were told that our room was not ready. But because we were waiting, they were going to call housekeeping and get them to clean the room asap. Well it took over 2 hours for them to get our room ready. 2 hours? How can that be? So needless to say, we started out on the wrong foot. In addition, one evening early in the vacation, the kids wanted to rent a movie off of the tv. That didn't work so we called the front desk and they were going to work on it and get back to us. Every day for the next 5 days we complained about it. Every day they said they were working on it and every day they were going to get back to us. Well they never got back to us and it never did work. Otherwise the only other complaint was that when it rained, the satellite tv wouldn't work. So when the weather was bad and the only thing there was to do was watch tv, the tv's wouldn't work and the movie rentals wouldn't work. Other than that, we really like the place. The people are friendly, it's quiet, clean, and very nice. There isn't a ton of people and this year we went to the other 2 pools that are just up the street. Those pools are also nice and not near as crowded. We love it at the Marina Village and I hope we can afford to stay there again next year.

This is a solid 4 star condo hotel. Facilities are clean and well maintained. Staff is friendly and go beyond to make your stay the most enjoyable. Rooms on the Marina side are a bit noisy due to the open air bar downstairs. Exercise facilities are well maintained. The Dolphin tour was fantastic as we saw a pod of dolphins frolicking in the water showing of their young. A do not miss event! The two bedroom suite is well laid out for two couples and offers plenty of space. Would definitely recommend and go back.
