We stayed for 3 nights on a recent weekend trip away. The resort is just that - so don't expect any quick access to local nightlife or attractions. That being said, the rooms are well done and the location is just off the beach with nice swimming pools. The resort is clearly geared towards family vacationers.
Firstly, the room was large and comfortable. All the amenities one would expect from a Marriott where there and the internet was reliable and fast. Secondly, the location - though outside of any city - is only a 10E cab ride away from San Pedro, a lively little town with some good dining options.
The reason for it not earning a 4 star rating, was that the service was a little underwhelming. As a regular at Marriotts around the world, I have come to expect staff to maintain that little bit extra. At this resort that wasn't really the case. Check-in could only be done at 4pm - a little late considering this is a resort with many people arriving around 12 - 3pm. Secondly, a check-out time of 10am is a little bit silly. After much haggling and proving my hotel points, they extended it by 1 hour. At better equipped resorts, it's a simply given that you can check out until 2pm or even later. Again, at a resort, they should be more flexible on this.
Other than that, the food was ok, the drinks about the same. Expect to pay resort prices. But I can't really complain. It just wasn't up to what I'd expect from the Marriott brand.
