I have to say from the time we arrived and were greeted with some rum punch and smiles, I knew we were going to really enjoy our stay. The room was upgraded, you have to ask, if possible, it was our honeymoon. We had a beautiful view overlooking the tennis courts and the welcoming caribbean. My father and grandmother were... More

We were there for the Paradise Jam Men's Tournament. They handled the traffic very well.The beach and pool area was very nice. I would suggest that you upgrade to an oceanfront room. We had a king sized bed and the room was very large, clean, and had a lot of amenities. They get a lot of traffic there so the... More

I am writing this review to appreciate how Eddie, the front office manager, made our stay so wonderful and memorable. I stayed there to surprise my boyfriend on his birthday. I knew that he wanted to go to Caribbean islands sometime soon so after researching many places in Caribbean, I decided to stay in this Marriott. His bday is Thanksgiving... More

The location near downtown is excellent. The views from the hotel are beautiful perched on top of a cliff, but still a short 5 min walk to the beach. Unfortunately, the rooms are in need of remodeling. I'm a Mariott "gold" member and was told my room was upgraded. However, it was still worn down. I was also very disappointed... More

Even though nothing stands out in particular, this is a wonderful resort, excellent setting, great accommodations, and outstanding service; just what you should expect. Pools, beach, restaurants, bars are all easily accessible with first-rate food and beverages served pleasantly. Just a nice place to get away and relax.

This hotel was great! The rooms were a little small and dated, at least they were in the Frenchman's Reef section on the beach, but we didn't mind since we didn't spend much time in the room anyway. The property this resort encompasses is huge, and there is something for everyone to do. At the main pool on the property,... More

We had absolutely a wonderful time @ the Night Kayak tour. As a newbie to Kayaking, it was a little overwhelming at first, but we were able to make the 1 hour trip easily with no problems and no toppling!
