“Great resort with beautiful beach for geared for couples”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

My husband and I stayed at the Marco Beach Ocean Resort the beginning of Jan. 2013. We had a great time. We were looking for an adults oriented resort for our 25th wedding anniversary and were pleased to find there were primarily couples and very few children. The Marriott next door which was significantly larger seemed to cater to younger children with more pools and a game room for kids as well as catering to conventions - one of which was going on while we were there. The room was nicely decorated and the kitchenette although small had everything we needed to grab a quick breakfast and lunch. The only complaint I have about the room was the dresser was in the closet making it difficult to retrieve our clothes. Other than that the service was excellent and we were especially impressed with Branka who went out of her way to give us recommendations and make reservations for dinner. If you are looking for a family friendly resort which is much more crowded and noisy I would choose the Marriot next door but if you are looking for a relaxing, romantic resort with great service the Marco Beach Ocean resort is for you.
PS: As many of the other reviewers indicated stay on floors 9 and above to get a great view of the beach. We were on the 11th floor and enjoyed great views of the ocean and sunsets over the water.

My wife and I needed to get away for the 1st time since our kids were born (8 yr old & 6 yr old) so we decided to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary in Florida (needed some place warm away from North East)..A friend recommended Marco Beach Ocean Resort so we booked it with very little lead time. There was availability!! We wanted a view of the Gulf so we needed to be on floors 9-12 to get a view. We were on 11..Perfect for a sunset on the balcony drinking our bottle of champagne they sent to us as a gift for our annv....The resort is awesome and perfect for couples. Some families were there but there wasn't a lot of kids activities so I am not sure I would return there with my kids, but the Marriott 2 doors down was awesome for kids it seemed. Great service on the beach, lots to do if you wanted...This is paradise to me!!!

Room Tip: To get a room with a view of the Gulf and the beautiful sunset, request a room on 9-12 floors

We opted to pay extra and get a great room with a view. The suite with a small dining room is very nice, and the view is spectacular. Pool and beach facilities are good. The restaurant is great, the staff is friendly and helpful. Great bar and cocktails. The only negative - the suite only has a small dresser buried inside the closet and the armoires in the bedroom and the living room hold televisions but offer no other space for clothes or anything else - Also when we mentioned that the hotel might consider a small coffee bar in the lobby in the am, we were advised that the coffee bar was in the restaurant which is located in a separate building. But make no mistake, this is a nice place staffed by very good people.

my family and I were restricted by our schedule, to only 1 night here, but we found gold! The top front desk, willing to bend and accommodate us at every turn. Valet/bellmen and entire staff were simply pleasant and welcoming. Given the chance I might have to stay over another night , pending notice of flight cancellations, I was assured of a room w/o having to actually book one. And they were busy! This is one of those "condo/hotels" where the hotel staff manage the property and rentals on behalf of the condo owners. great location and facility. Follow Marco Polo and find gold here.

this is an excellent property. while the pool is small, so is the resort so it was never crowded. the beach is wonderful and there is ample seating with attentive staff. housekeeping is impeccable (and refused to take the tips we left out). the rooms are very clean and comfortable. i do agree with others that the furniture is a bit oversized and tends to dominate the room, though.

the front desk it helpful and accommodating. and the lobby smells heavenly.

breakfast and lunches were very good and not outrageously expensive.

the layout of the hotel is odd but they must have had certain constraints when they planned it. you will not walk any more than you would at the marriott to get to the beach.

the kitchen is equipped with all of the necessities you need.

Room Tip: the higher the floor the better the view. go for 10 or higher.

This resort is stunning! The rooms are immaculate and spectacular! The beach is pristine and the guys who serve you on the beach are wonderful. Brian at the front desk is most accommodating. I would recommend one of the top floor two bedroom units. Can't wait to return!

We stayed at MBOR for 6 nights and particularly liked our stay because there were no worries. The best thing is the beach. At some resorts there is concern over beach seating/service. Not here. There are plenty of beach chairs, umbrellas, towels, and service. The valet parking and doormen couldn't have been better. It's especially nice to return from dinner to find the results of turn down service i.e. chocolates, refreshed towels and pleasant music from the radio. The location is good too, the resort is within walking distance of restaurants, convenience store, movie theatre.

However, I did find the layout a little strange. The "beach bar" isn't on the beach and if you dine there, you are essentially sitting in a thoroughfare from the hotel to the beach. The facilities in general need an upgrade. This still wouldn't deter me from staying there again.

We had also considered the Marriott. The property itself looks very nice and we walked down to their place for lunch. It was very overpriced and overcrowded. I was glad that we had chosen MBOR over the Marriott.
