“Best ever in Barbados”
Reviewed May 3, 2014

My Boy and I stayed at this hotel April 23 to May 2 , 2014, apparently Nine days after a We just couldn't handle all the snow this winter and had to get away, so this was a leisure trip. Our purpose was to get as much sun as possible.

We have nothing but good things to say about the hotel. Part of that clearly has to do with the fact that the hotel was brand new, so everything was spotless. And we pretty much had the hotel to ourselves as we saw only a couple of other patrons. Apparently we were the first to sleep in the room that the hotel staff gave us. We did have a view of the ocean from our window, which was across the street and behind some buildings.

Marriott is not a beachside hotel did not affect us.

Overall, I would definitely stay at this hotel again. The hotel staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome. Our room was large and spacious. I didn't have any problems connecting my computer to the Internet. Just two oddities. There was no clock in the room (nor was there a radio), so, unless I turned on my computer, my sister and I had no way of knowing what time it was (neither of us had any watches or cell phones with us). Which was fine with us. We didn't want to know what time it was. And I'm sure that the rooms have clock radios by now. The second odd thing was that the hotel is oriented backwards. The back of the hotel faces the highway and one has to drive around the hotel to get to the entranceway which faces a fence behind which is the residential area of the Garrison District. This made no sense to me. Why not put the entranceway up against the highway? But it didn't make any practical difference to us. We would just come into the hotel through the "back doors" leading into the lobby area. But it does make the layout seem a bit odd.

Room Tip: Visit the marriott it's the best and house keeping is the best I Would to Thank HK CARVYLE also...

I enjoyed staying at the Marriott, very clean, the beach is just across the street. very friendly staff especially "Ulanda" she made me feel at home. She took care of me like a sister, she truly is a great asset to the hotel. Also Angela and William from the restaurant are very friendly!

I'd fully recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to Barbados.

Dear Jacques,
I am glad that you enjoyed your stay with us! Allison tries to ensure that what she promises during the reservation process is delivered during your stay and we really appreciate all of her efforts. The entire team takes a lot of pride in maintaining the hotel and we welcome any feedback that would help us to improve. Did you get a chance to go to any of the nearby restaurants or to any of the nice beaches within walking distance? My favorite thing to do is to take a stroll on the boardwalk around sunset to watch the beautiful colors of the sky and I hope that you get to try this on your return!

Spent my 12th Anniversary at the hotel. The staff were excellent, professional and friendly. The rooms were immaculate and the overall standard of the hotel is very good. We had breakfast from the hotel on a couple of occasions and totally enjoyed it. The front desk staff were very welcoming and the manager took the time to explain to us all of the current and future steps the Marriott group are taking to ensure the hotel continues to be one of the best in the Caribbean. As a local couple, we were especially impressed with the attitude of the staff and the professional manner in which all of request were handled. Having stayed at several other Marriott we were totally surprised that our best stay at a Marriott would actually come at home. Excellent, and keep up the good work.

Arrived at the hotel mid afternoon
, greeted at the entrance to the hotel and once again in the lobby by the friendly ladies at the front desk ,as expected with Marriott the decor was modern and in this relatively new property ,clean !
Check in was swift and efficient my room was on the second floor ,equipped with fridge ,coffee machine ,safe , iron etc ,room was quiet bed and pillows very comfortable
The Fridays restaurant next door has been closed since November but the hotel has a restaurant and there are plenty of eating places nearby
I used the pool which is long but not very wide but ok first thing in the morning this is my second time at the hotel which is across the road from the beach which is not a problem
Hotel is quiet clean suitable for business and leisure travellers and all staff are welcoming and very friendly .

Have just spent 10 days in this Marriott and could not fault it in any way. The staff are all so friendly, they always made us feel welcome and were amazing with our 2 young children. Angela and William in the restaurant in particular were brilliant!!! The hotel is immaculate and the housekeeping staff go out of their way to add personal touches to your room. Would defiantly recommend this hotel for both business and pleasure.
