“Fabulous Staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014

On a business trip my business partner and I decided to enjoy the ocean front property in between meetings and get a little relaxation in. Having only been to FL a few times over the years and never having been any place tropical I was delighted in finding a coconut on the hotel grounds and asked the front desk how one opens a coconut to have fresh coconut milk. She got Chef Marvin who explained that the one I found was no good but her would find a way to pick me a fresh one and open it for me.

Needless to say they went above and beyond the call of duty to create a little excitement and joy. They called maintenance to get ladder and pole to get 2 coconuts (one to take home to my son), chopped it open and put a straw in it for me to enjoy on the spot. I, also, got a little education on the difference between a fresh picked coconut with milk and what one gets in the store or from the backing section.

Marvin got a huge hug from me and Kim offered me this website to be able to acknowledge my gratitude and delight in the service and desire to make my stay a memorable one. I will be happy to return!

Room Tip: Not all the balconies face the beach... the internet is terrible unless you pay for the daily upgrad...

When one goes to a hotel with direct ocean view, it is expected & should be that 'all services'
are at a certain level. This is not rocket science. Paying for parking is unacceptable, requesting additional towels & then having them removed the
next morning, unacceptable. Lack of communication . Providing coffee packets without coffee cups, do I even need to say. Forgetting toiletries or providing enough for only one person, when there are two, frustrating. And can you please provide another hook or two to put your towel & clothing on...On a positive note room was clean staff friendly but we are vacationing, paying fairly good money, let's leave the frustration at home where it belongs. I got it, I know we don't live in a perfect world. But we can try to be more compassionate & respectful to guess.

Very nice room, food and service. Desk clerk Argelio(sp?) was particularly helpful. Beach and pool areas are pleasant. Valet parking attendants are good, but it is a pain not to park your own ca. Hope to stay there again.

The room was a very nice size with an extra large bathroom. The room had everything; washer and dryer, full kitchen, tub and shower, living room area, and great views. The hotel is great for a long stay. The breakfast was good and if you wanted to stay eating healthy you could.

The only issue we had is that they had a wedding going on that Saturday night and they closed their only restaurant and bar. It was set up for the wedding. It was a bummer since this was the only restaurant for guest. So we had to go off property for dinner and drinks.

I also found it odd that they only had one person at the front desk our entire stay. So we had to wait in line each time we went to the front. And you had to get towels from the front desk for the pool/beach.

The staff was awesome at the hotel.

I would come back. Thanks

I took my 87 year old father on a mini-vacation since he does not live very far from Pompano Beach. Our room was 911 and the one bedroom had a spectacular view of the ocean while the other one had a very nice view of the skyline as well as the ocean. It was a nice three day visit and the front desk staff was extremely accomodating to us. I also wanted to give a shout out to the maintenance staff/engineering since they helped us out in a very embarrassing situation without ever making my father feel uncomfortable. Thank you for that! Some of the positives to note were the grouper sandwich in the little restaurant, the breakfast in the morning and the time of year we chose since it was very quiet with limited traffic on the streets. The negative would be the spa and quality of the massage. It was probably the worst I have ever experienced in my life. I was so slathered up with oil that, even after a shower, I still cannot get it out of my hair and body. Plus, she talked too much and hurt my shoulder. Do not spend the money there but, otherwise, I would recommend this hotel.

My wife and I were on our honeymoon. We had originally had reservations at the tropic cay hotel. After seeing the horrible rooms tropic cay had we left and started heading north. We stopped at the residence marriott and as soon as we told them our horrible experience they pretty much eased our frustration and set us up in a beautiful room overlooking the ocean! Cathy and Kim took great care of us! We even had a cute little fruit plate in our fridge the next day from Michelle at the front desk! We will definately be returning! Customer service was outstanding and the location and rates for what you get were very reasonable! Thank you!

Sincerely
Helen FREESE

Pros:
We stayed for two weeks and we absolutely loved it!! I'm a beach junkie and this hotel is right in the sand!! It sits east and west, I recommend staying above the 6th floor and as far east of the hotel as possible, less obstructions for your view. The south side of the rooms is all windows offering an amazing coastal view and a walkout balcony with seating. Ate breakfast on the balcony almost every morning. The rooms are equipped with a full kitchen, an on suite bathroom with shower and seperate roman style bath. It also included an in room washer and dryer which was super convenient we were able to throw our dirty clothes in the washer after taking them off. The majority of the staff, those providing customer service were helpful and friendly. We checked in on a Saturday morning and were greeted by the front desk manager (Ms Sahida) who graciously presented us with mimosas. It was a great way to start our vacation!! Ingred the bartender was friendly and Michelle who worked both valet and front desk was also very customer oriented and friendly. Recommend this hotel to anyone who IS NOT not looking for an overkill of a resort style hotel, which by the way, was next door and had karaoke going every night, not my thing. All in all this hotel is in a good location and it was clean.


Cons: The parking is limited so the hotel has mandatory valet parking at $20 a day, on top of that, you feel obligated to tip when picking up dropping off vehicle. We didn't tip everytime, but when we did it generally was $3-$5, as to adjust for not tipping other times. Do not leave valuables in car as I had a $300 pair of sunglasses taken from our vehicle.

Room Tip: I recommend staying above the 6th floor and as far east of the hotel as possible, less obstructions...
