“Perfect, except for an unknown bug...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

The room is perfect for families and very close to Miami Airport. Easy access to major freeways and other sites in Miami. The room is very spacious and comfortable, but my son was bitten by some unknown bug and had marks for almost a week. We don't know what happened and he didn't get ill but we were worried.

Outside there is a big lake with some really big fishes there. I saw some really big ones swimming by where I was fishing and with the right equipment there could be some really good memories. I got 5 of the little ones, but still fun. There's also a golf course, a mini golf course and a swimming pool.

Even with the bug, we would come back.

Room Tip: I wouldn't go for the ground floor units.

Doral was really expensive-$16 for a BLT sandwich? 4:50 for a coke and no refills??
Marriot villas were nice as long as you did not mind a plane flying over every 3-5 minutes as the landing pattern for Miami International went over the Doral golf courses and the Marriott Villas.

This property is amazing for a lengthy stay. The rooms are 2-bedroom/2-bath villas and very large, both bedrooms had 2 queens and there was a total of 2 sofabeds so you could sleep 8 if needed. The room is basically an apartment, with a full kitchen and large living area. We had a balcony that overlooked the lake and it was nothing short of amazing. The hotel even had glasses, dishes and utensils fully stocked. The pool is amazing and open until 11pm. I did not want to leave this place. They have a gym and a small game area that we played some ping pong at, they had a few arcade games and I was surprised to see they actually charged you quarters to play them. Doesn't really seem necessary to charge people for that who are paying $300 a night. I had read complaints about airplane noise, I only recall hearing 2 planes and that was when I was on the balcony and it wasn't bad.

Room Tip: Higher Floors will give you a balcony to relax on, the bottom floor is just a porch and its not clos...

Clean villas and common areas. Good customer service. Without the access to the Trump pools etc., the trip would not have been as enjoyable. Limited activities, I think it was because of the holidays, but we did not join any of them due to lack of interest in what was offered. Expected at least a bingo game but none here. Next time will go to a different location as we had fun but not as good a time as we had at other locations....

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor....in the newly renovated main villa...

After reading reviews we decided to spend a week at this resort. The 2 bedroom units are large, well equipped & are comfortable. Many amenities include a reciprocal agrrement to use Trump's Doral Golf Resort & Spa facilities (free mini shuttle) & it is suggested that you walk their grounds & use the upscale, relaxing pool facilities. 5 golf courses are available for play.
The Villas have many activities & included is 9 hole mini golf course, cornhole, game room, fitness center. Planes do begin the descent to Miami Airport overhead, but the path does not affect a night's sleep.

Room Tip: If traveling with children,bldgs.1-3 are good as they surround the pool. Adults might want to reque...

3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

I stayed a couple of days in this hotel which is hard to believe that is very close to Miami International Airport. The views from my room were impressive, it is a golf course and a lake. I had a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom suite. The spaces are comfortable, 3 TVs, a safety box, a very big shower in the main bedroom.

With everything so nice I´m sad to say that my experience was not such a good one based on the quality of the bed. It is simply not comfortable. The Decorative pillows are just that, very hard and simply you can not seat on the bed while waching TV. All they need to do is buy new beds and have comfortable pillows. A second problem during night: perhaps it was the air condition machine, but the noise generated by it was similar to sleeping inside a jet engine. The third problem are the elevators, very slow, but fast to close... And to finish the experience, the GYM room has oldish machines in very little quantity and its location can be a walk of 4 minutes depending where your room is.

Considering the price, the complete experience was not ok and the sleep quality was poor.

Room Tip: Listen the noise level in your room before accepting it

I stayed here on business. Since this is a vacation property the amenities are geared towards such guests meaning they offer activities daily for guests, including a fishing derby which work precluded me from enjoying. They have a nice pool, small lake to fish, cornhole/bocci court, and 9 hole mini golf all to enjoy on the property at night additional fee. They also have outdoor gas grills available to use. Guests are also free touse the amenities on the Dorsal Resort property across the street (shuttle service included). The 2 bedrooms suites were clean and spacious. All in all a very nice property in a very limiting location. Plan a 30 minute trip to Miami beach or the like; however, the airport is nearby. In fact, the flight path is directly over the property.
