“Instant Replay !! :-)”
Reviewed December 14, 2013

Well, we said we'd be back again, and we just got back AGAIN !!! This place is hard to get tired of. As usual our room was clean and comfortable and overlooking a beautiful pool. Lots of nice facelifts have gone on since the last time we were there. I wish they had wifi in the rooms, but not a biggie. We thoroughly enjoyed Rick in the hotel main bar. He is a master at what he does and first timers were amazed at how he worked that bar. We said we'd be back for him and we were. We were delighted to meet Tara, who is also great !! She learned how to make the "Rick signature Sangria" YOU GO GIRL !!! Her smile, friendliness and professionalism proves Marriott is on top of how to "welcome their customers". Paul gave us some suggestions on how to get places, and also very kind and professional. The staff at the front desk welcomed us back and the poolside bar area, as usual hopping and great wait staff out there. Well, we'll be back again sooner than one year. Keep up the great work, Rick and Tara, you guys ROCK, keep coming up with those magnificent drinks !! See you next time.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the pool....BEAUTIFUL !!.

This was the second time coming here to the hotel. My girlfriend and I came last year and had such a fantastic time here. The thing that brought us back was the bartender Rick. This year Tara was helping behind the bar. From check in, to housekeeping, to service at the pool and check out, everyone was fantastic. They were so helpful.
The hotel is getting a bit of a facelift right now and it looks great. I do have to say the rooms do need a tiny bit of sprucing up but they are very comfortable. With 2 nice size TVs everyone is happy. Our room was over the pool area. What a view, between the pool and the bay it was just beautiful. This is a hotel that I will continue to come back to more than once a year.
Out the back of the hotel there is a boardwalk that takes you to shops and restaurants. A truly wonderful place to stay.

Room Tip: You can't beat a room over the pool for the view.

If you prefer a quiet chill out location instead of the buzz it's your hotel. It's about 5 mins drive from Clearwater public beach but has an own peacful shore as well. All the rooms have ocean view and the whole resort is beautiful. Staff is kind and helpful the only weekness is that they only have free wifi in the lobby.

We have stayed in Marriotts around the world, and this is clearly a beach resort, rather than one of the more elaborate big city hotels. That means that whilst the rooms are large, with a separate lounge area, the decor is much simpler and less plush.
The location is next to the sound, with the beach a few minutes walk (or transfer) across the road. The beach is quieter than Clearwater Beach, but the sand is coarser. You are surrounded by other hotels or housing developments, so aside from a short strip of shops there isn't a great deal to do nearby.
Some earlier review comments to agree with. Yes, the walls are very thin and noise does travel. Yes, avoid any room that ends in 20 (eg 420, 520 etc) as the balconies are directly above the kitchen extractor fans and the smell of bacon, or their legendary steaks, is very strong.
A couple of gripes of our own. There was extensive repair work going on which meant the gym was out of action for a couple of days, and also impacted the main bar, restaurant and lobby for several days of the stay. We also had one morning when the pool bar music was on very loud from 8am (or possibly earlier!) which wasn't appreciated.
However, having said that the hotel does what it does well. A hotel, in the sun, nice pool, surrounded by great water views and some of the best staff that we have seen in a while. Top of the list by a long way was Tara the bartender, who was effortlessly friendly to everyone whilst multi-tasking managing a bar that was heaving with wedding guests - Marriott are very lucky to have her !

We had a great visit to this hotel for 3 nights during early part of Thanksgiving week. Front desk staff was very nice and helpful and actually show you around a bit when you get there, not just hand you a keycard. Although this is on the sound side, not the beach side, we had views from both sides from our room. Rooms were spacious and luxurious bedding. Our balcony had plenty of room for 3 plus a table for little breakfast while watching the wildlife in the morning. Everything was very clean. Pool is absolutely fabulous and huge, with several waterfalls from weak to strong to massage your back or kids to play under. It was heated so we enjoyed it nightly despite unseasonably cool weather. Two flat panel TVs and we loved having the living room and bedroom separate so little ones could watch what they wanted or get put to bed earlier. There is a lot close by, withing walking distance. We came back to the room from shopping and found milk and cookies for us waiting in our ROOM. Concierge staff was very helpful and eager to assist, and will gladly drive you across the street to the beach which is a park with great amenities. Just give them a call and they come back to get you. Self parking for free or valet, up to you. They had really nice spa quality toiletry products that smelled very exotic. Plus the plush, white terry robes add to the effect. If I had to give drawbacks they would be minor but the restaurant is very expensive and so is room service. We ate breakfast out because of this but had dinner once and it was very good. We were high up (GREAT) but it was quite windy and so your door was like a vacuum seal. You had to hold down everything for someone to come and go out of the room or everything would blow away! Your bedroom faces the sound side so you don't have that heavy wave action to watch or hear to lull you to sleep. Just like the wind grabs YOUR door, it grabs everyone's door and helps to close it with a big slam. We heard this a few times but also we DID this a few times so we knew it was difficult to prevent. The bathroom door is a louvered slider so it doesnt lock, really. We went to the pool very late some nights like 8,9 pm and there were very few clean towels and some wet ones lying about on the deck. I'm really reaching here to think of bad things. All in all a great visit. They have some sort of kids club but it was not open due to being so far out of season, perhaps or maybe the holiday. Also, we had no time to use the spa. We were here on points so we cannot speak to value or price.

Room Tip: If you want quiet, get a room that doesnt overlook the pool directly. The rooms overlooking the poo...

Attended a conference for several days at this resort. The facilities are all first rate. The rooms are impeccable as are the common areas. The staff is very attentive and friendly. The conference facilities are top notch. The food catered for our conference was varied and exceptional. I would recommend Marriott Suites Clearwater Beach for any business conference or for a personal stay.

Not sure about some of the complaints i see on this hotel. We had a 4th floor suite and I didn't hear road noise or other guests. We were directly over the pool, so if you opened your balcony door you could hear people but that cut out before we were going to sleep. Room service breakfast and dinner (the only meals we used it) were above average to very good in my opinion. The chocolate chip cookies we got for desert gratis were a nice touch also.

Watercolors Steakhouse was (in my opinion) overpriced compared to a couple of other steakhouses nearby but the service was very good and an excellent wine list.

Prior to dinner we had a drink sitting at the bar and the bartender was a real trip. We enjoyed the drinks as well as his banter with some of the (seemed like) regulars.

My only complaint that I left with the hotel was the charge for internet service. It was only $9.95 but with free internet becoming ubiquitous and the price of the sweets it seemed a little irritating.
