We are Marriott Rewards cardholders and just returned from four days at this Marriott Resort with our daughter and 4-year old grandson. My husband and I have been there before, but it was our daughter's first time, and her 4-year old couldn't get enough of the beach and pool, which were awesome. The room was nice, and we had a nice view of the pool and gulf, but we were surprised to find a single shoe under one of the beds (we were looking for a lost flip flop), plus a cotton swab and a few strands of hair on the bathroom floor. We always make a point of leaving a tip for housekeeping each day, as we know how hard they work, but these were unfortunate mistakes that we had to witness first off. I agree with other reviews regarding the blue wristband...we didn't understand its meaning, or how it was monitored. The "dibs" on pool lounge chairs were humorous at first, and we soon learned how to "play the game," but that practice needs to be addressed. Placing a towel on lounge chairs at 8:00 a.m. to hold them for an hour (or more, which we noticed) is ridiculous. When you're ready to actually stay at the pool, that is when you deserve to occupy a chair. Although we had four chairs for our family, we gave up two of them to other unsuspecting guests as a courtesy, when there were none other available...and this was only mid-morning!! We did not have any problems getting chairs at the beach. We ate on-property only three times, as the prices were exorbitant. We had dinner twice at Quinn's...superb service by Maria on the first night, and over-the-top from Tiffany on the last night. Cudos to them both for making our dining experience pure delight. The only negative was the choking price of a chardonnay...$50 a bottle for a mediocre label that retails for $11...almost five times retail, and in a plastic glass! Ugh. We had a lovely bottle of cabernet at a nearby high-end restaurant for $51, which retailed for $25. There would be no comparison in volume of sales of large resort vs. small restaurant, so why gouge your guests? As more and more guests choose alternative methods of eating and drinking (local restaurants and liquor stores), Marriott might want to revisit some of their pricing, but with a renovation coming up, I'm guessing it will go the other way. Regardless, we want to thank the resort staff for their hard work and the attention they give to guests.
