We were a little concerned based on all the reviews about construction noise and the property being out dated. We were happy with our stay. There is construction on the property next door. Our room's balcony was on the side of the construction. We did not hear any noise from the construction site that bothered us. My son did enjoy watching the cranes move around. I have to say that it did not disturb our stay at all.
The area that I did think needs to be updated is the pool and Jacuzzi. The colors and faded numbers that tell you how deep the pool is let you know that it has been around for a long time. The bottom of the pool has some spots that you can tell it needs to be redone. Is it bad? No, not at all.
The room was large and very comfortable. We had two queen size bed and a full sofa bed. Beds were comfortable. The room was very clean and nice. Bathroom was a nice size. There were 2 robes and slippers for our use. Furniture was in good condition. Maid service was great. Did a great job with our room every day. Staff was very nice.
We ate 2 times at the breakfast buffet. It was good. No complaints. Orange juice was delicious, food was good. The team at the restaurant were extremely nice and provided great service.
Beach was great. Loved that they provide you with 4 lounge chairs per room. Would love it even more if they also provided the umbrella as part of our stay. I did appreciate very much that you can bring your own umbrella. For a cost you can rent jet skis and several other fun activities. They did offer some activities for kids. Would really be great if they offered more. We have stayed at the Marriott before and my kids expected similar activities as they offer there. That part was a little lacking. But, none the less they do offer something and some additional for a fee. There is a small activities room with a ping pong table and a fuzzball table. There is also a table where you can play a board game (bring your own board game). There is also a TV that seems to not have any reception... we tried and nothing. There is also a gym, nicer than most hotel gyms.
There is a fee for parking. Not sure why hotels would charge for self parking, but some do. Found parking without an issue.
Overall, we enjoyed our stay. We would come back. The staff was very friendly and always with a smile. Rooms are clean, nice and comfortable. Hotel is clean and nice.
