My wife and I spent a week here. Our first time on Marco Island. We arrived on Sept 1 st,2013 and left on the 6th. Too short of a stay. Pricy but very nice accommodations. It was very crowded the first day we arrived and they had placed us on the 3 rd floor facing the family-Kids pool. It was pretty noisy,but at check- in they suggested they could move our room to a new location as more choices would become available. They suggested the 10th floor which we enjoyed overlooking the calmer wading pool with the palms and a nice view of the beach.
Rooms were nicely laid out and clean. Hotel staff could not have been nicer,and service was exceptional.We had sushi one night and it was very good but pricy.
I would stay here again when it was less busy. Once the crowds and the kids left, the atmosphere was much nicer and less hectic. Location was great-beach was fantastic.If you like long walks on the beach this is the place. I would bring water shoes as some of the shells can make walking in bare feet less comfortable. Sunsets were a photographers choice so bring a camera.Loved the calm warm water and at 88 degrees it was soothing.
