“Great BeachDig Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

We stayed here for five days while my daughter attended a BeachDig sand volleyball camp. The location is one block from where the club practices, and on a nice private beach.

Pros:
- quiet clean beach
- queen bed suites with full kitchens
- on site restaurant is limited
- close to the lighthouse & inlet
- close to wave runner & other water sport rentals

Cons:
- valet only parking ($20 a day)
- no beach chairs / umbrellas for hotel guests. You have to pay $25 a day for them.

Overall ... I would stay here again. I also plan to check out the brand new Marriott Pompano Beach that is opening next door.

Awesome Staff and Beautiful Rooms! We had requested a room with two queen beds and received a two room suite with two full baths, kitchen area, laundry area, and a great view! The staff was great all the way around, offering complimentary bottles of water upon pulling up in our vehicle - very cheery and helpful at every request. We were offered a complimentary bbq cookout the evening we checked in, their normal Wednesday happy hour get together, and also had a complimetary breakfast the next morning, including eggs and sausage and waffles and cerial and yogart and fresh fruit, everything that you look for in a great complimentary breakfast. They also had some awesome spa specials and a very well stocked fitness room with lots of equipment that if we had stayed longer than one night I would have definitely taken advantage of. We would definitely stay here again!

We have stayed at this Marriott with our dog, several days at a time, during the Thanksgiving holidays over the past 3 years. After abusive treatment by one of the evening desk clerks last year, we have decided that the stress created by this person is not worth the cost and will never stay here again. Marriott should take more care in the desk help they hire or they will keep loosing customers We contacted Marriott Corporate but the woman we spoke to made us feel that she didn't care what happened and would do nothing about this. We decided not to send our comments to her for her boss to read.

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else

We stayed in a two bedroom with full kitchen unit. The apartment was huge, lots of space to open all our 5 pieces of luggage. There is a private assess to the beach with cabanas that can be rented with chaise longs. One of the beds is in the same space as the kitchen table and sofas so if you have children sleeping in this bed, make sure you won't need to use the kitchen while they are sleeping. The only problem was the AC units that made a loud noise once the machines are inside the rooms. The good thing is that they have individual settings for each room. We loved the breakfast which was simple but complete. There are no restaurants in walking distance but Fort Lauderdale isn’t too far.

Room Tip: Rooms with ocean view and not ocean front are VERY good. No compromise in that.

The Good: Location, Great Views, Beach, & Large Rooms. Valet Staff, FD & Bar staff were pleasant. Full Kitchen & Washer/Dryer in room.
The Bad: Room was musty and needs updating. Small Balcony. Small Shower. Not much to do in the immediate area.
The Ugly: Had a Banquet there and the service was below Marriott Standard. Bartender was 30 minutes late. The Food was regular at best and the AC was not working. The Banquet Staff was below average and even stated the AC not working happens all the time. Shower tiles were moldy.

Room Tip: All Rooms are large, have a full kitchen and can accommodate large families.

Wake up in the morning and walk right out on the beach! Turn left on the beach and walk to a lighthouse or go seashell hunting when they dredge a canal (A local told us to do this, it was fun!) Turn right on the beach and walk to a pier and see what the fishermen are catching. (We saw a nurse shark and a pufferfish.) The hotel also had 2 pools, hot tub, free breakfast with many choices, and helpful and polite staff. Free food and complimentary drinks were offered in the evening. My sister-in-law and family had problems with the utilities in their room. The problem was taken care of right away and for their "inconvience" everyone in the room received a voucher for the restaurant. We ate once at the onsite restaurant. The food was okay, our waitress excellent. Our rooms were very spacious, clean and comfortable. At night we were fortunate to observe 4 sea turtles laying eggs. What an experience! There was also a daycamp offered for children for $59. We did not do this but it looked like the kids participating were having fun. Great place to stay for families. We would definitely stay here again!

This hotel had it all, right on the beach, great staff, beautiful view of the ocean from the room, two pools and a hot tub, complimentary breakfast and huge room. There is a charge for valet because parking is a premium, but every time we called down for the car it was waiting for us.
You can have room service or dine at their restaurant. We chose to check out local restaurants that were highly rated by tripadvisor reviewers. The breakfast had something for everyone, from yogurt parfait to waffles or eggs and breakfast breads, and good coffee.
Great place for families and business folk.
