Stayed at Marriott Newport Coast Villas in June. Quality was top notch. Views and setting were amazing. We saved money and bought at Redweek.com. Paid $2000 for a week in June. We hope to return again.

First time visiting Newport Coast Villas and now having found this vacation gem we will definitely return year after year.
The resort is very family friendly. The rooms are spacious offering 2BD, 2BA with a full kitchen and laundry. When you checkin you are given a weekly itinerary of things to do around the resort such as Wii competition, snow ones, crafts, caricature drawings, live music, wine tasting, dance lessons, tennis, basketball, playground, mini golf, onsite arcade, and a whole lot more. The views are amazing. The resort is large with over 700 units so they have shuttle service running throughout the property. My family and others roasted s'mores by the fire pit every night. There are two fitness centers on property so we never had issue with getting in our workouts. My husband likes to grill so he was thrilled that there were gas grills all throughout the resort. Go grocery shopping at the nearby Trader Joe's or other grocery stores in the area to stock your fridge for the week. We never had a problem finding suitable swimming pool seating during our stay but I do recommend getting to the pool earlier rather than later. Crystal Cove Beach is just across the street and I do recommend taking the complimentary shuttle if you have little ones. I'd recommend these villas for families, especially over the summer vacations.

Like the reviewer below, we are Marriott Premier Owners. We have come here every summer since I can remember.
Positives:
-Good/Avg Wifi
-Soaps provided smells amazing
-Suites are an excellent size
-Activites
-Good location

Negatives:
Before there weren't as many people. I think they're letting anybody come, as before only certain people could. There are more crowds than ever. Customer service has gone down; probably because they think that us owners don't really matter anymore because we're already members and will probably stay loyal. They're probably just doing they're best for their new guests. We asked for a new room because we were supposed to have an ocean view, but our view was mostly covered by trees. They said "the entire place was booked". That's not possible; there are so many villas. We also used to have our towels from the pool picked up from our rooms very quickly without having to ask. Not anymore. My mom met some non members and they had a nice room/view, and their building number was around 4000-5000, which we used to always have. Also (I've never had a problem with this) the fan connected to a light had some weird turning on and off problems.

Room Tip: -If you come with noisy/stomping kids, the bottom floors are the best, although you won't get as...

My family and I stayed here for ten (10) days in July. We are Marriott Premier Owners, but this was our first trip to California. The resort is beautiful, located on the hills across the PCH from the beach - with multiple Spanish or Italian style villas built onto many acres on the hillside. The view from the lobby, and any villas in the building where the lobby is located, is spectacular - overlooking the three main pools, which are beautiful, and the Pacific, as well the landscaped property. The problem is that if you aren't in this building, or one near it and on a high floor, you lose the sense that you are at a resort on the Pacific coast. Our villa was on the first floor of building 1700. The villa was well appointed and clean. However, we had a view of trees off our deck and a view of a large hill in the front of the building. From our building it felt more like a mountain resort than a beach resort. We did put in our priorities for our villa immediately upon receiving the e-mail from the resort. Having a view was at the top of each of our submissions - if not of the ocean, at least of the pools. Unfortunately we got neither. We were told that the best they could do for us was to put us in a centrally located building, (which they did - building 1700 being the first center building below the main pool). The explanation was that the resort is full of owners this time of year. I accept that, but was still a bit disappointed that the best view we could get was of leaves - which I get to see plenty of at home. The kids' programs and teen club seemed to be well run and my kids enjoyed them. I was surprised the pool bar and grill closed as early as it did, and there was no entertainment on any evening as there is at some MCVI properties. One major drawback at this resort is parking. Each villa is supposed to have ONE spot in front of the building. Several nights when we got back from Disney or Universal at (;00 or a bit later, there were no spots in front of Building 1700 or any nearby building. There should be assigned parking spots for each villa, with illegally parked vehicles being towed. Another smaller drawback is the number of steps you have to walk. To get to the pool from Building 1700, we had to walk a large number of fairly steep steps due to the grade of the property. The steps were not a problem once or twice a day, but they did get tiring the third or fourth time up and down in a day, or when I had to walk some of them because I couldn't park near my Building. Don't take this as a negative review. Overall, I really enjoyed my time at this resort, and the local area is incredible. However, this was not my favorite MCVI property and I think they can do some things to improve the vacation experience.

Room Tip: Ask for a villa in the building which houses the lobby, or one of the adjoining buildings. Otherwis...

Came here as a trial to see if we were interested in buying a timeshare. Although purchasing isn't in the cards for us at this time, we loved the resort and had a fabulous time. You can't beat the location, beauty of the resort itself, villa accommodations & activities offered. Having a washer/dryer in the villa, having 2 separate bedrooms, a full kitchen and gas grills a few steps from our door were all welcome amenities!! Great family vacation!

We stayed for a few days in April with two boys (16 & 12). Our suite was perfect size. 2bdrm/2ba. One had king, other queen with pullout sofa in room. Additional pullout in living room. Had full kitchen. Main Pool area was nice with 2 good sized pools in one area. Boys played ping pong and jumbo chess in pool play area. Lots of families were enjoying it. Was full, but didn't feel too crowded as there are other pools on property. We were a bit of a hike away, and up some steep steps, so ask about that if it's important to you. We used the gas bbq grills one night that are located at each building. Close to Pelican Hill golf-hubby said was great. Easy to get to spots in Newport Beach, both to sightsee and shop including grocery stores. Made day trip to Disneyland (open to close) with minimal traffic.

Cons: no restaurant on site, just pool bar (food was decent) and not within waking distance of anything, must use car to get anywhere. They have shuttles on property, but we didn't use them as our car was more convenient. Offers to sit through presentation. Fortunately, they were not aggressive like other places can be and respected our decision. Game Lounge filled with young kids, not teens and game library was virtually non-existent, bring your own entertainment for evenings.

Room Tip: Located on a hillside. If you have strollers, trouble with stairs, steep hills, etc. Ask about tha...

This was our third stay at this resort and by far the best. Based on our experience, villa location is key to fully enjoying your stay (villas we occupied previously had no views and small patios). The grounds are beautiful and the views are breathtaking. There are on-site activities for adults and children and without exception, each member of our family rated this a 5 star vacation. There are several pools, a fitness center, kids' activity center, great shopping nearby and of course, the ocean. We have already booked this resort for next June.

Room Tip: Request an ocean view prior to your stay.
