The CasaMagna Marriott is a Courtyard and next door is the JW Marriott a full Marriott. However, the difference between the two is nominal except for the cost - unlike most Marriott v Courtyard comparisons. They have the same views, beach and access. They both have and share conference space so there is a common business clientele. The so-called "family" atmosphere at the CasaMagna is a little misleading. While you see some children and it does have a little "kiddie" pool, it is not DisneyWorld. Most people are adults of all ages. The facility is like a resort and it would be hard to do better on the "Hotel Strip". There are several bars, eating spots etc. The rooms are fine. However when they say "Ocean View" they really mean "Ocean Glimpse" except for some more expensive rooms overlooking the pool. The Breakfast restaurant was really nice with a nice view and an excellent buffet in terms of choice. We paid $137 a night including all taxes without using consolidators etc. The biggest shock was the cost of food anywhere on the strip. Breakfasts cost us $19/pp which was for a bowl of cereal, some fruit, orange juice, coffee! Lunches in the area run around $20/pp (with the best lunch we had anywhere in the Yucatan being at the Sedona Grill in the JW Marriott - surprised us as we only went there because it was raining hard). Dinners are expensive for an average to very good meal - running around $30-40/pp. The best meal by far in terms of quality, atmosphere and service was La Habichuela and it was $35/pp without liquor.
