My sister and I visit Florida every December for a long weekend. This property is north of Fort Lauderdale and a quieter area. Only valet parking. Great beach. Good pool. Great food and drinks. The room was decent, nothing special but the view made it worth it. The staff was very friendly. The waiters at breakfast were awesome! This is a new Marriott and they seemed to really care how to make everything the best they could. Loved this property and would go back. Where the need to improve so beware, you can not use even the chairs at the beach without paying $15 a day per chair. These are Marriott owned chairs on their beach. I travel a lot and am open to spending more to get what I want but do not like to be nickeled and dimed. This needs to be part of their resort fees. While sitting at the pool for 2 days straight not once were we asked if we wanted a drink. The wait staff stood by the bar. Now we like a few drinks, will order food and tip well. We actually ended up buying bottles of wine (outside) instead of traveling to the bar and back and waiting for service. That revenue Marriott is trying to get at the beach could be easily tripled if they just told their wait staff to walk around and take drink orders, from everyone! Both issues easily solved with fantastic customer service. But great property on a fabulous beach! Just figure in the extras of valet and chairs.
