“Typical Marriott - Top Notch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

Marriott Resorts are so predictable - they seem to always do it right. Great people at the desk, in the restaurants, and at the pool to serve you. Modern, clean, functional facility. Great beach access. Nicely appointed rooms. It's always nice to arrive and just kick back and not have to feel anything but pleased at your choice of accommodation.

Room Tip: Get an upper floor, either ocean view or partial ocean view.

This resort is the perfect balance in regards to location and amenities. It's away from the t shirt shops and tourist traps, but still a quick car ride away. The pool and beach scene here is perfection. The staff is friendly and attentive, and the food was great! Rooms are sufficient, an update is due in the next few years.

We stayed here because we are Marriott rewards members and the hotel had good reviews. The property is beautiful and it has a lot of amenities as wells.

The lobby, pools, restaurants and common areas are very nice and well maintained. The staff are well trained and are very professional and kind.

They have two restaurants on location along with a very nice spa (which I also reviewed). It is located just a hundred yards or so from the beach. This portion of beach is about six miles from the boardwalk and strip area where all the touristy stuff is. It's a nice secluded beach area.

The rooms are the only thing I could find negatives. We got a corner room so we had a ocean view and a resort view. The room had a musty smell to it, but we covered that up by spraying perfume and opening the balcony door. Wallpaper was peeling in the bathroom and the plumbing pressure was horrible. The air conditioner was struggling to keep the room cool, making us keep the balcony open all night (it was cooler outside). One huge thing I didn't like was that the sheets kept pulling up off the sides of the bed and bunching up on top. It was vey annoying.

If I didn't pay $219 a night I wouldn't have cared so much, luckily our stay went into Sunday night which bumped us to $170, which is reasonable for the room.

Overall it is a decent room with a awesome hotel. I would stay here again due to the fact most of our time was spent outside the hotel and on the beach.

Great staff and excellent buffet breakfast. Beautiful property and beach. Room was nice, but had double beds, not queen beds. Stayed on top floor (15th.) The pool area(s) and grounds were beautiful and well-kept. Really enjoyed the huge, comfy hammocks (ages 16 and older, too!) Nice music playing. Fast elevators. Quiet rooms. Didn't care for the pillows.

I recently visted this hotel over April break with my boyfriend who was on crutches. I pulled up in front of the hotel to drop him off and the valet told me we could get free valet service for the length of our stay becuase he was on crutches. (normally $18 a day!) That was a great way to start off at the hotel! We unpacked and went right to the pool. The pool is spectacular! 2 levels with a "waterfall" between the 2 levels. It has a waterslide and hot tub outside as well. There's also an indoor pool. The hotel is right on the beach as well, but the pool was so gorgeous we used it all the time instead of the beach. We ordered drinks at the bar by the pool - EXPENSIVE. $10.50 apiece for a mojito in a plastic cup! Beer was more reasonable at $6. The room was very nice. Wish the air conditioner was cooler but was sufficient. They definitely need more blankets on the bed. The linens are thin. The bar downstairs is nice but very loud. The restaurant is ok - we were the only ones there - food was good, but slightly overpriced for what you got. Staff was great. Very friendly. Hotel was very clean. Highly recommend this hotel!! *Cation...during our 4 day stay there was a large number of conferences there on the lower level. One function turned out to be a nighttime party for a company. This was outside and they had the music CRANKING. We were on the 14th floor and the music was so loud you could not hear yourself think. We called the desk and they said it was ending at 10pm and it did. That was the only loud nighttime function we encountered.

Room Tip: The higher the better, and oceanview rooms if you can get one have balconies. Partial ocean view roo...

Service was excellent and in all aspects of the hotel from the Front desk, Concierge,
Housekeeping, by the pool and in the Spa. Breakfast was plentiful and well cooked
but the evening restaurant menu was "slightly boring".

The room was spacious and the bed was comfortable and despite jet lag we slept well.

Room Tip: Do ask for an Ocean view. We had a beautiful room looking south down the beach rather than directl...
