“Excellent Stay!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

We (2 adults & 3 kids-18, 15, 8) stayed here for 7 nights as our home base while we traveled to Key Largo and Miami Beach. Villa was beautiful but smaller than other Marriott villas we have stayed in the past. Two bedrooms; 1 king bed in master suite, 1 full size bed and a sofa bed in other bedroom. The sofa in the living room is also a sofa bed so you can actually sleep 8 people in total! Kitchen was fully equipped with pots, pans, dishes, and utensils. Location is good. About 1 hour to Key Largo and 20-30 minutes to Miami Beach. Plenty of restaurants nearby. We went to Shorty's BBQ and Sergio's for Cuban food. Both were good and not too expensive. Also plenty of chain restaurants nearby as well as malls for shopping. We went to Publix for groceries and Walmart to buy miscellaneous items--not far. As another reviewer mentioned, traffic is very busy on the main road, especially during rush hour. My kids loved the pool and the neon lights at night. Pool water was very warm. Grounds are beautiful. Beware of mosquitos as there were plenty in the pool & hot tub areas. We all got bitten in various places. Our villa was on the 3rd floor with the lake view--very nice. Kids also enjoyed the Game Room. Guests at this resort can take the shuttle to go to the Trump National Resort across the street. We did that and used their pools. It was worth a visit. You can also take resort shuttle to go to the Dolphin Mall. It departs everyday in the morning and come back at 3 pm. We drove there instead. Everyone at this resort was very friendly and helpful. Business Center located at lobby. We printed our boarding passes there. Some complain about noise from airplanes but I did not notice it. I highly recommend this resort!

Room Tip: Higher floor with lake view.

If you can find find enough places to eat in Doral, this is an excellent place to stay.
Although there is construction of an apartment building next door, I barely ever head a sound since I stayed in the palm villa farthest for the construction. only drawback is it's distance from the restaurants in Miami and Miami Beach (which is where I made reservations. being totally unawhere of the insane traffic between the 2 areas. at all times of the day and night.
Otherwise the staff were very nice and helpfull, the villas are slightly smaller than other vacation club 2 bebroom villas but larger enough and my Granddaughter was fine with a queen bed in her room, she got a couch, I didn't, so there.

Room Tip: All the rooms are the same, the villa s farthest from reception are quietest during construction

This is a peaceful Resort with beautiful views across the Trump Doral Golf Course. There are currently building works going on which can be annoying but didn't impact upon our stay too much. The staff here are just great, they really go the extra mile for you - especially Brittany (Guest Services), David (Front Desk Supervisor and Nadiash (Front desk Manager), all of these wonderful people gave outstanding service. You are able to use the pools at the Trump Doral or pay $15 to use their Spa facilities. We were fortunate to be given day passes and spent a lovely day there.
Our apartment was nicely situated but the bed was not very comfortable and the chairs were well worn - definitely in need of a refurb in our opinion. Apart from this it had all the amenities that we have come to expect being Vacation Club owners and it was immaculately clean.
The property itself has just the one pool but it is a good size. There are many more activities upon offer now then last time we visited and we will definitely be going back for longer to experience more of these in the future.

This is a wonderful hotel that had all we needed for a family vacation. The 2 bedroom apartment was super clean and well equipped. The front disk staff was great and accommodated all of our requests.

We had a major inconvenience the first night where the air conditioner stopped working. We were promptly relocated to another apartment. The guest relation manager, Susan, presented us with a generous gift card the next day. We deeply appreciate this token of hospitality.

Played golf in Miami over a weekend and stayed at this Marriott vacation hotel. The service was great and starts at the front desk. Rooms are typical vacation time share property but extremely clean for a not so new property.

This property is a typical Marriott... Staff was very polite and attentive. We asked the girl what's the best floor and she replied... "I have a very nice room...but it maybe a little noisy"...
She was right. Stay clear of the rooms near the elevators.

The property itself reminded me of those condo conversion projects... Where the rooms themselves are updated but the rest of the property looks dated.

That said the room was clean and fresh. Decor was quaint with a Latin faire. We had a two bedroom suite with two full bathrooms and a full size kitchen. All nicely appointed. Everything clean as can be.

My bed was comfortable...complete with down comforter and pillows. Even a ceiling fan for those warm Miami nights...My roommate liked the AC temp a little higher than I did so the fan in bedroom came in handy... Nice touch.

Lots of restaurants near by too. We didn't try the property restaurants. Also, room service is not open late...but with a full kitchen...you can keep your own snacks.

There is a building going up next door but there were no workers there on the Saturday we stayed there... But do call ahead.

All in all... The property is nice, comfortable and well run. I'll stay there again when my business takes me to Doral.

I loved my stay at Marriott's Villas. The villa had a great view to the lake and golf course. I loved taking my morning coffee looking at the lake very relaxing. I didn't mind the construction. The pool is big, and very pretty. The Villas are fairly close to every point of interest in Miami. I just don't recommend driving in the rush hours. The staff was great and very friendly. I went with a toddler and he loved it too! Also, I got there before the check in time and they were able to accommodate me and my family. Overall it was an excellent experience and I do recommend staying here.

Room Tip: Ask for a room farther from the construction.
