We had two rooms booked for 3 nights. One was a golf package, the other was a spa package. This is a beautiful and tranquil resort and overall we had a good experience. However, the resort applies an automatic 20% service charge to everything. I believe in giving credit where it is due and think of myself as a good tipper. Applying service charges leads to complacency though and there were certain staff who, given the choice, I would not have tipped at all because of the service and attitude.
Another point is the lack of choice when it comes to dining. There are few dining options and the menus are limited. In fact, the MesAzul steakhouse is closed on Sundays! The best menu seemed to be the room service menu, but again there are charges with that. Also the $24 dollars per day for parking seemed excessive.
As for the golf and the spa, they were excellent and most enjoyable.

This review is for the rental apartment segment of the marriot at doral which is just across the street from the golf resort and all the facilities of the resort are open for people staying there.
I spent 4 weeks traveling in US from Florida to West Coast and stayed at hotels in price range of USD 50 to USD 400 and this was by far the best possible hotel for US. I was traveling with my parents and wife and we booked a 2 room apartment. from check in to entering the room everything was perfect and once we entered the room it only improved. The apartment was clean, well lit, airy and had amazing view of the golf course. the rooms were spacious, again very clean and had very comfortable beds. the best part was the kitchen and dining area. Kitchen was well stocked with all cookware we needed and the dining place was a cozy and lovely place. The rooms looked like freshly rennovated and the room service was excellent. they even provided us with lanundry inside the apartment.
The Gym and Pool area was very clean and the staff was really very friendly.

I surely would love to be at this place again be it with family or with friends.

I stayed at this resort for 5 days over the Labor Day weekend. The staff was incredibly helpful and friendly. Excellent customer service. The rooms could use a bit of upgrading but they are clean and spacious. The spa at this hotel is excellent!

Room Tip: Ask for buliding closes to the lobby. Property is pretty spread out.

Unfortunately here as part of a conference. Public facilities like conference rooms, bar, restaurant are in relatively good repair, if not as clean as they should be. The hotel rooms and "lodges" are awful. Place looks like it was built when the Jetsons were on TV and has only had paint since. Low ceilings, holes in the towels, only one chair in a room for 2 people (!)--I don't see how they even manage to keep the Marriott brand. Only bright spots were the pleasant staff noted in other reviews, and the new restaurant--steaks were excellent.

I stayed at the Doral Golf Resort for 10 days in August. It's a beautiful resort, whoever is in charge of the gardening does a fantastic job. The plants and flowers are colorful and alive. I felt like I was in a botanical garden. The property is huge, the set up is nice. the place is divided in many lodges and each lodge is as big as a small motel on it's own. The main theme is not surprisingly...Golf. Golf paintings on the walls, golf pictures. Photos of successful golfers that have been at the resort and so on.

The golf course itself looked really beautiful although I did not find the time to play - There was so much to do and see in Miami - Be warned the place is large and depending on where your room is, it can be quite a walk from your room to say the main reception or the spa. There are drivers in golf carts around and you can always hop on one and get where you want to go faster.

I liked my room it was spacious, comfortable and on the top floor. My last three nights weren't fun as there was a "serial snorer" in the room next door. I mean it was as if he was in my room. Such a hotel should be the last place where you want to be confronted by such a nuisance, I didn't ask for another room cause i kept thinking he or she would check out the following day...only to be subjected to the same snoring sound the following night. At least now I know why some people leave their partners just because of the incessant snoring.
All the staff members were friendly and courteous

The food was good. the chef did make some delicious dishes on more than one evening. The bossa nova lounge was really cool with a live singer everynight. They do serve great mojitos.
The gym was one of the best I've seen in the hotel industry so far. A proper gym with a full range of weights and many different machines. Enough treadmills and cardio equipment for everyone. Multiple flat screens. I was able to gym everyday of my 10 days because the gym was actually inviting and comfortable.

Cons: The parking area looked a bit dodgy, It didn't feel safe, almost like it's something outside the resort. My ironing board got stuck in the open position on the 3rd day. I just couldn't close it back in the wardrobe. left a 5 dollar tip every day with a note to housekeeping to please fix it. The tip was taken everyday, the board was left unattended to everyday...until I left.

All in all, it's a lovely place, I would go back again.

I was looking forward to staying at this hotel and treating myself to golf after a long week, but the property was so disappointing that I cut my trip short and skipped golf. The food is mediocre, service was slow in the restaurants, room was full of ants. Parking is inconvenient to everything and the lot is in terrible shape. The elevator was so beat up it looked like a freight elevator. The entire property really shows its age. At night, everything is very dark, poorly lit walkways, terrible signage, just very little to commend them on. The golf course looked beautiful, but wasn't worth spending another night on the property.

Well, I was debating between a two and three star review. When I clicked to preview the review, Doral's Internet service decided to charge me for another day, kicked me off the page, and wiped out my review. So two stars it is.

Room Tip: Choose a different property.
