We thoroughly enjoyed our annual week at this great Marriott property on the beautiful Marco Island beach. Sitting on the Florida southwest Gulf coast, on a three mile white, sandy and pristinely maintained beach, the Marriott grounds, pools, rooms and staff are just superb. The beds are the best and the rooms are comfortable and spacious, each with a balcony. We enjoy the little restaurant right on the beach, Quinn's on The Beach, from which we love to watch the spectacular Gulf sunsets. The menu is small but interesting, often with seasonal dinner specials. The quality of the food is mixed and not always consistent , but average hotel food. The service, though, is most always exceptionally good and friendly, The other restaurants on the property Re also expensive Nd the food just average. But Marco Island is full of wonderful restaurants, a number of which are even within walking distance. The beach activities, pools and spa are fabulous. There is a special Kid's pool as well as a giant family oriented pool. Both offer comfortable water, spa and sunbathing opportunities in a safe, clean and friendly environment. The separate Marriott Spa facilities have an additional pool. This is our favorite hotel in the world! We look forward to returning each year.
