Located in old Ft. Walton, two blocks from the east side of the Brooks Bridge, this property is well maintained and offers easy access to all of the area attractions. The heated pool and a hot tub were nice features. We stayed in Rooms 204 + 204A which provided a full kitchen/living area, a bedroom, and 2 full baths. Two...

We absolutely loved it here. The bed was just as comfortable as our bed at home. The room we have was everything we needed for a week and perfect size for me and my husband. The front desk ladies were absolutely wonderful. The staff was amazing and very helpful in making sure we had what we needed as far as...

We decided on a spur of the moment anniversary trip. Just at the start of Spring Break. Getting a room on the Gulf was not going to happen, and the price was prohibitive at that time anyway. We thought we "settled" for Marina Bay Resort. What we found was a very clean (I read all reviews first) resort. Stepping out...

Our 1st time here, but NOT our last! From the "front desk" hospitality shown, to the immaculately-kept grounds & amenities, we felt like we were "at home" for a wonderful week! Our accommodations were compact, but complete, all things needed for a comfortable stay. ALL staff were cordial (even security,& housekeeping), like close FAMILY. We especially enjoyed the Monday Morning...

We have been staying here for years and never get tired of it. The staff is very friendly and are like family, the rooms are nice and clean, and the view is awesome.

This Resort/hotel is an amazing place to stay. It is clean, close to many amenities and best of all is the people at the front desk. One person in particular is Pamela Jackson. She has the best customer service you could ask for. Very pleasant and helpful! I have stayed here many times and she has never let me down....

We have been coming to Marina Bay Resort for 25+ years. From the very first time we walked in, we felt SO good about the facility. We would ask our children every year if they wanted us to trade the time share for another place....NO!!! They wanted to go back to Marina Bay Resort! Now, our children continue to return...
