Got back from Marriott yesterday, lovely holiday, but some things really annoyed us. First on arrival at the hotel their was no-one at reception so had to wait 20 mins for someone to attend to us. After getting to the room it was too late to have anything to eat as dinner was over at 10 p.m. and couldnt get drink as bar shut at 11 p.m. so after a long day had to walk to Naama Bay to get something to eat and drink. Went on all inclusive package, and as others have said drinks were not free on the beach, we had 2 cans of there stella from the beach bar and cost nearly £7 in our money which was the most expensive we paid, so found Amirs beach party pub just further down and had 2 bottles for £3 quite a difference. You can only have drinks in beach side with your lunch in their dinning room but every time we went it was full so walked back over to mountain side. We have never been on an all inclusive where drinks on the beach were not included, and you need drinks as it was soooo warm on the beach. As others have said bit of a pain signing every time for something to drink, but heard whilst there that they are looking into having wrist bands which im sure will be better for them, although they will have cashiers out of jobs. We was on third floor room 737 overlooking the pool, and very nice it was too. Room was nice and clean and air con great and needed. Our cleaner was one of the nicest chaps ive met and nothing was too much trouble so we tipped him well. Bar staff and waiters were good too, Sofia in the dinning room was a treasure, she even peeled my husbands boiled eggs lol. Went into Naama Bay a lot as found it very quite round the pool bar on the nights and they shut at 11 p.m. so after that nothing to do. Read reviews before going and some complained of road between the sides, but i found it amusing that the cars wouldnt even stop half the time for the lollipop men to cross us over. Would go back to Marriott if they changed the all inclusive to apply to both sides. Definately going back to Naama Bay next year. Haggle the taxi drivers it should only be 20E to Naama Bay.
