“Definite pros and cons”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2014

Pros- room has everything you need, space, amenities, view. Great location on the beach.
Cons- thin walls, lots of door slamming. Overheard very intimate activities as I was walking to room. Parking and elevators inconvenient. Pool area is nice until 2pm.

1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2014

As a frequent stayer of Marriott's, this stay was by far the worst. Upon entering the parking garage you circle around countless times to finally get to the marriott entrance, which is an elevator. There is no bellhop, and no place to pull over, so you're unloading in the middle of the parking garage. That leads to checkin...what do you know the rooms ( and I'm a platinum rewards member) aren't ready and the water view is not an ocean view but a bay view. After speaking w the rude manager my trip had just started off dandy.
Other negatives: 1 small pool for hundreds of guests, no available chairs by pool after 9am, pool bar closes at 5. It begins to get shady by the pool around 3 (tall buildings). The elevator was extremely slow (to the tune of sending a note on our checkout day of "best times to use the elevator". To get to the beach you need to take the elevator down to the bottom of the parking garage then walk through a desolate area of the parking garage into an outside mall then to the beach.
Positives: close to the beach (but considering its a block away it takes about 10 minutes to get there), rooms were kept clean, Starbucks on site (one lady was extremely rude)

Room Tip: They don't guarantee ocean view, it's only water view.

Great location. Just a few minutes drive from the rental car lot at FLL airport. Prime location on the beach. Wished that when I checked in at 145pm on a Thursday that my room would have been ready, but due to Spring Break crowds I understand. Had a single room facing the intercoastal waterway. Clean. Standard Marriott Vacation Club. Just stayed one night for business but will consider returning with my family. Might even trade my one week at MVCI St. Thomas for a week here.

BTW, choices of restaurants in attached lower level mall made for easy eating.

You have the best of both worlds at the Beach Palace. You can hang out by the pool, or walk right to the beach. Rooms face the ocean with great views. You are located right off A1A. The courtyard has stores and a restaurant which sells cheap margaritas. There is also a grocery store nearby. There is no wasted space so parking is in a garage beneath the building.

We like to spend between a week to a couple days in Florida before we get on our cruise every year. We are family and friends and most of us married in our late 40's to early 60's. We usually stay in a hotel where the pool is an absolute oasis but if you want to do anything other than that you have to have a car which means designated driver. This was our first stay at the Mariott Beach Place Towers. Most of us had the regular king size rooms~ which were nice kept clean every day by the hotel staff and the kitchenette was wonderful. I don't need a full kitchen just a mini fridge to keep things cold, coffee pot and microwave. Having all the dishes and glasses including wine glasses and corkscrew was very nice. We were only on the second floor in the corner on the ocean side. It was nice I won't complain Yes we overlooked roof tops but just past it was a great view of the ocean. My sis in law was on the 8th and cousin on the 15th ocean side and those were great!! Anywhere you have a balcony and can get away from -10 degree weather in February is wonderful :) A couple in our group had a newly remodeled suite. They were VERY NICE!!! We had some really rainy weather and it was nice to be able in the evening to sit around the pool with the beautiful lights on and enjoy the seating area under the over hang. The pool wasn't huge and in February the pool was pretty much shaded by 2:00, but the beach is right across the street and it is beautiful. All the restaurants right out front the hotel were wonderful and having a CVS right there for beer wine water pop and most everything else a CVS carries was a huge plus~ FYI no pharmacy. We went to Lulu's Bait shack for mussels ~ yummm. Hooters for wings. Subway for breakfast or lunch. We went to Saprano's ~dueling piano's on Friday night. We got there at 7:00 when it started, got a great table and then about 8:30 a much younger crowd came in. We had a lot of fun. Just out the front of the hotel to the right is a great selection of places to eat or drink. Down a couple blocks is a Quarterdeck rest. If you enjoy Ribs then you have to try them. We went to a different location last year and could wait to go back. It did not disappoint. We loved everything about the area and will be back next year :)

Room Tip: I agree with others going higher up is better for more quiet.

This is NOT a family resort. Pool is small and shaded. Unable to leave the resort past 6 pm as there is craziness on the streets. Fights and drunk obnoxious people. Resort had many many young college kids as well which is not enjoyable when your with a family. Not many places to go with kids either. I will NOT RETURN. next time I will travel elsewhere

We are time share owners of this hotel. We were on the 18 floor, ocean view, the view is exceptionnal. The renovated rooms are pretty nice with all the services; washing machines, oven, dryer, coffee mach
Ine, toater etc. Great room, good mattress, very clean. There are no issues with the parking, yes its narrow, but you are on the beach, only a fool would expect a lager parking. Elevator are good, we wait 2 min the most, relax you are on the beach.

It was spring break, so the room next door was noisy, I went and see them. Tuesday night was very noisy outside because of mardi gras. But overall it was ok.

New lobby is fine and nice. In the pool are, people put their towel on the chair, reserved them and leave, I recommand you remove them like I did and take any chair, too bad.

Room tips, both side are nice, ask for an higher floor.
