This hotel itself is nice, on par with what you would expect from a Marriott. We stayed in June for a week, in the full suite. It is nice to have a dishwasher, washer/dryer, full kitchen. We stayed just before the recent renovations, so the furniture and decor were at the end of their lifespans, but the room & contents were clean. The staff was friendly & helpful. The beach is right across the street & is nice (with exception to being somewhat dirty - cig butts, bottle caps, etc. found in the sand). The pool is fairly nice, but does get crowded around 10 a.m. & after. The major downside to this location is the atmosphere & surrounding restaurants/businesses. In the last 10 years, the area surrounding the hotel has gone drastically downhill. The hotel used to be surrounded by nice restaurants/shopping years ago. We travelled in June with a young child, and the surrounding businesses (mostly the kiosks) were entirely inappropriate for families. Tacky drug & adult themed advertisements & products were everywhere & could not be avoided as you had to walk through these areas down below to get to the beach across the street. Further, the nighttime atmosphere was basically "you are never too old for Spring Break", people in their 40's and up partying everywhere you look ... not the environment for me, and especially if you are travelling with family. You feel like you can't go out after dark, unless you are into a Spring Break type of party scene. Of course, that is personal preference. I would not stay at the hotel again, due solely because of the surrounding area. This area is not family friendly.
