“Trip of a Lifetime”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2013

We spent a week in Marco Island for an event and stayed at the Marriott Resort and Spa. I was travelling with a group of young adults from Ireland who were competing in an amateur boxing tournament, (many of whom had never been to the US before). Upon arriving at the hotel and until the day we left, each and every staff member was truly world class. They couldn't do enough and were genuinely friendly and attentive to our needs. Rooms were extremely spacious and the views incredible. The event itself was run impeccably courtesy of the Event Director Laurie and her amazing staff. We are hoping to take part next year in another similar event and I only hope we stay in the same location. It truly was a trip of a lifetime for all involved, largely down to the people at the Marriott.

Thank you for your great comments. Having experiencing the amateur boxing match, I can say the athletes from Ireland were truly world class. We are honored that you and your group were able to stay at our resort. We hope to host more event like this in the future as well.

My husband and I stayed here for five days for a combination of business and pleasure. The hotel's staff is very friendly and wonderfully attentive. The food was spectacular - for our company event we had a lobster bake on the beach with fresh salted fish and every imaginable kind of seafood as well as a roasted pig! The chefs definitely outdid themselves- it was so good I ate two whole lobsters! The pool and the beach was beautiful and I liked the fact that the room had a small fridge for leftovers and drinks. All in all a wonderful visit.

We (family with two 7-year-old kids) had a wonderful modern and spacious room in the ninth floor with gorgious view on the beach. Great place with pools, one ideal for kids, excellent restaurants including an Illy Cafe Bar and direct access to the beach with the incredible white sand. Very friendly service at the reception as well as in the restaurants. A great place to spend some days with the kids.

Room Tip: We recommend the recently renovated rooms (in the ninth and tenth floor) with beach view.

Sounds like you enjoyed a wonderful vacation. We are delighted that you took advantage of all of our amenities including our kid friendly pool. Trading in the white snow for white sandy beaches sounds like a good change. We look forward to hosting you in paradise again.

My room faced the beach and the pool and I payed a decent package daily rate, which included wifi and a reduced parking rate. Parking in MI is an issue by the way, you'd better pay hotel's parking to risk been towed if parking on streets. The tiny island is mostly residential with few hotels. Space is a luxury there and business knows well how to squeeze your pocket so you pay a premium for it. In the pleasant side, the beach is great for a sunbath, swim, walk and shell catch. During my stay the wind twisted the then calm ocean, bringing lots of shells to the sand. Staff is well trained and corteous. The hotel's restaurant brings decent food with some caribbean influence. There is a commercial center in front of the hotel if you'd like to eat something different though. If you choose to stay in MI is because you want to rest. I did not try the spa, but imagine yourself relaxing in a massage session after a full day walking, tanning in the beach between meals and naps. It's relaxing taken seriously to the next level.

WOW - What a surprise this is a 5 star property all the way. It should be a RITZ! Every inch is well done, clean and organized. Very nice stay, warm staff, great views and wonderful amenities. Great location, beautiful beach front, many pools, nice lobby bar. This must be the best on the island I couldn't imagine any better! Enjoy your stay.

My wife and I arrived a week prior to a convention for some R&R. Had it not been for the convention this would not be a destination for us. However, we did end up staying here and it is a great hotel for select clientele such as retirees, families and conventions. I asked one of the staff what the property was like during spring break and the response was, "have you ever been to Chuck e Cheese? Nice pool and beaches, but the property is not conducive for semi-young romance.

Room Tip: There are two towers and on both Towers the south side and west sides of the towers gets full sun...
