I stayed with three friends for a "ladies getaway" after 3 days in Key West. I traded into this location on the advice of friends who had stayed there, although was a little concerned after reading the reviews. We own several Marriott timeshares in St. Thomas, Hawaii, and Hilton Head. Each had it's own "feel" and Beach Towers is no different. It is in a busy area so the surroundings are different than a typical beach resort. However, the 2 bedroom unit was lovely, updated and very clean. The staff was wonderful from the front desk, guest relations, pool and bar staff and those who hosted the reception and orientation meeting. We had no trouble finding the garage following their printed directions. It is a little confusing after we arrived on a Sunday night and went downstairs for a quick dinner. (The only time we felt the "shopping area" was congested with loud music etc.) However, by the next morning it was easy to get to the beach, pool, lobby or to several restaurants in the area. The longest wait we experienced for an elevator was about 3 minutes! (Although we did check in and out at "off hours".) We stayed on the intercoastal side and think it is probably the best unless perhaps you are in a very high floor on the ocean side. We had breakfast and afternoon wine everyday on the balcony and it was lovely. We walked to several restaurants in the evening and felt very safe. We planned to leave for a day to go to Miami but were enjoying the area so we never moved our car. We used the water taxt one day and it was great. You can see all the homes on the intercoastal and get everywhere. We used it during the day for shopping and then again that night to go to a restaurant--one price for all day. If you realize that this is not a huge resort on acres of land but rather a downtown location and you are aware a time share is not a hotel with daily maid service etc.then I feel it provides for a wonderful vacation. We had no complaints about any aspect of the Beach Towers and would return.
