This hotel probably deserves 4 stars and was comfortable enough, but given the choice i would rather stay at one of the beach front hotels over the road even if they are perhaps less clinical but certainly make up for it with some West Indian character.
In the Marriot, the lack of a balcony confines most guests to their rooms and the air con unit was louder than most power stations which was perhaps my biggest problem.
Only two bottles of water for the whole duration a bit of a pain too and the anorexic swimming pool was definitely an after thought from the Marriot hotel bosses. Annoyingly, the bar was not in anyway comfortable or welcoming, that said, the staff were helpful and pleasant, straight out of Marriot Hotel training college.
If you come to Barbados and choose to stay at a Marriot then I suppose you won't be disappointed, plus with the TGI Friday's next door you can close the door on the Caribbean and pocket yourself a little bit of America on the island! If that's what you want from a trip to the West Indies!?!
