We reserved a deluxe ocean view room. I was very disappointed with the first two rooms we were given, as the views were not unobstructed; in fact, one room (on the third floor) was directly behind another building. However, the room we finally got after two trips to Reception had a gorgeous view -- similar to what you see on the website. I think this room was definitely worth the extra $$ -- the others were not so I'm not sure I would pay the extra unless I was assured of a full ocean view.
The room was spacious and clean -- fine for two adults and a child/teen. We ate at Ko one night and the food was very good, service was excellent. I highly recommend the free morning canoe trip. A pod of whales came within several feet of the boat. Amazing!! The beach is crowded -- the chaises are very close together. First day, I forgot my wallet to tip the beach crew. Didn't make that mistake again -- you get much better service with a nice tip...Did the luau at the Marriot -- food and drinks not very good but the entertainment was fun.
By the way, we had sun the whole time, while it was raining in other parts of the island. All in all, if you like larger hotel properties, I would recommend staying here.
