All of the people who leave bad reviews are either old or are coming here with young kids. I am amazed at how they seem shocked that "Fort Lauderdale is noisy during spring break". DUH. Next they will got to New York during New Years and say its "too crowded". Think people.
I have been to over half of the Marriott Vacation Club properties so I will give you a honest, real review from someone who knows better. This property is right smack dab in the center of downtown ft lauderdale. It can be compared to Timber Lodge in Lake Tahoe or the Grand Chateau in Vegas. Seeing as it's a downtown location, yes it can be a bit noisy. But that's the trade off for staying downtown (honestly it wasn't noisy at all when I was there, but im not an old fart who complains all the time). You are right on ft lauderdale beach and close to all the mansions and shops and great food. I had a high floor oceanfront unit which was breathtaking. If you don't get an oceanview, you will most likely get a city view which is AMAZING at night so its win-win.
If you are used to (and prefer) properties like Ocean Pointe, Ko Olina, Newport Coast, etc. that are far removed from the city and have more of a resort-esque feel you may not like this property. If you are old and think going up in an elevator is the hardest thing in life, then you might not like this property. If you plan on traveling to South Beach every day and not staying put at the resort, you may not like this property. Mainly because you will have to drive up and down the parking garage. But why are you driving so much when you are staying right where you need to be? Book in Miami if that's the case.
The rooftop pool was nice and always heated, the hot tubs were great too. Again, I was here during spring break and there was plenty of room at the pool and beach, not a lot of noise, and the elevators were a LITTLE slow but definitely not something that would ruin my vacation. The staff was amazing at the guy at the marketplace makes a mean roast beef sandwich. Just relax, take a step back, and realize that you are on vacation in one of the best cities in Florida (a place most people will never get to go).
