Because information is confusing about exactly where this hotel is located, know that it is located on the southern end of Singer Island immediately south of Riviera Beach. If you are interested in a Marriott location, there are two others within a mile or two of Ocean Pointe: Oceana Palms and the Marriott Resort. The beach is fabulous all along Singer Island! We were there during the third week of January and the water temp was 75, perfect for wading or swimming. There is a minimum of nightlife within the immediate area and most of the restaurants are located in other hotels, though there are a few good ones within walking distance. There is a very good, large Publix grocery store located next to the bridge to Singer Island. There is a wonderful walking path down the middle of the Palm Beach Shores area and another short one on the southern edge of the island.
We stayed on the third floor of the Dolphin building. We had a two bedroom suite and it was nicely (and newly) furnished, though not luxurious. We used the kitchen quite a bit and it was very functional and useful. The staff was friendly and helpful. We had one problem that has caused us to knock our rating down by one notch. The larger bedroom had a large tub with jacuzzi but my wife had difficulty figuring out how to make the jacuzzi work. When one of the maintenance workers was at our room to swap out a battery in the room's door lock so our room key would work, she asked him to show her how to start it. It turned out that the unit itself was unplugged and the motor was burned out and needed to be replaced. So we had checked into a room that was not ready, uninformed about it, and had to report this problem in order to get the problem fixed that should have been evident based on check-out procedures (not to mention a probable previous report). It was fixed promptly once the maintenance worker discovered it.
A real positive thing that was not clear from information in advance: almost every living room in the four newer buildings of this complex has a view of the ocean. The design of the buildings has each large room built out further from the room next closer to the ocean, and each has large corner windows that clearly view the ocean. Each bedroom has a small porch with table and chairs. You can sort of see the ocean from these porches. The rooms were quiet though most were occupied.
We were very disappointed in the Welcome Center because it is nothing more than a checkin-checkout area. When you arrive you will wonder if the rooms are as unattractive and poorly designed as the Welcome Center! The answer was, No. But if you want a large indoors area to relax (as almost every large hotel has), this one doesn't have it. We were told it will be renovated later this year. The pool area is large and very nice. There is a convenience store that includes a few gift items but no gift store (go to the Marriott Resort two miles down the street for that).
We did attend the Marriott Tour for those who aren't familiar with the Vacation Club. It lasted 2.5 hours though we were told it would last 1.5 hrs. That doesn't mean that we were pressured but there were three people who came to talk with us about different aspects of ownership. This "Tour" occurred down the street at the Oceana Palms Marriott (about a mile away).
