“Great place to vacation”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

Stayed at the Marriott for New Years. The location is great, right on the beach, and convenient for walking to dinner or a short drive to a wide variety of restaurants. The hotel itself is very nice inside, modern, lots of shops and options for dining without leaving the property.

One thing I really liked was that every single staff member, from the front desk clerks to security, engineers, the concierge, etc. were ALL very friendly. Whenever we'd pass someone, they would stop to smile and say hello. I love that!

There were a lot of people there for the holiday but the hotel didn't feel overly crowded. There were always open beach chairs, never had to wait to get a drink or meal, and never really felt like it was hard to maneuver around the property.

We had a corner room with an ocean view, which was beautiful.

The NYE party was good…they had a live band in the ballroom, and again, while there were a lot of people there, it wasn't TOO crowded.

I just stayed at the Marco Island Marriott Resort and can not say enough good things about the woman who checked us in when we arrived on December 21st, 2013. Her name was Joann and she welcomed my boyfriend and I to her property and was just so friendly after a long flight from Minnesota, it was refreshing! She described the property in detail, described our beautiful ocean front room that we had (and loved!) for two nights, and just took her time in speaking to us and welcoming us to Paradise! That hotel is the nicest hotel I have ever stayed in on the most beautiful setting in the world! It was immaculate, and the Christmas decor was unreal! The other service that was wonderful were the valet and the bell hops. They were also very welcoming and friendly. Actually, the entire staff was, including the people who worked at the spa, which I would highly recommend going to and getting a massage; to die for!

Again, thank you to the Marriott Marco Island for the wonderful stay, and especially to the front desk woman, Joann! You rock!

Resort is in great shape. Provides beach, pool, restaurants, shopping, activities, We stayed in a "Lanai Room" on the first floor which was an excellent room - large bedroom, two bathroomjs, seperate large living room. Our view was of the garden, not the ocean but I think there are some with ocean view.

Room Tip: ask for lania suite for lots of space

My wife and I wanted to get away for a short time during the Christmas Holiday so we booked a one night stay for December 23. Marco Island is only a three hour drive from home so we opted to leave early and try for an early check in as a Gold elite member. They were extremely busy and full so we couldn't get in at 11AM so they offered to call me as soon as the room was ready. My cell phone was dead so the registration staff offered to charge it for me while we were waiting. We then ate lunch at the Quinns on the Beach restaurant at the Hotel. The food and service was great as was the Holiday ambiance, speaking of which , the Hotel has gone all out with great Christmas decorations throughout. Check in in again after lunch , the room was ready and the phone was charged. Room and the entire Hotel was clean and well maintained. We had a very convenient room on the main floor with a balcony view of the beach and Gulf. I think it was refurbished within the past several years. We had dinner at the Hotels Kurrents restaurant, and again everything was above standards. We did not use the pools but we did enjoy walking on the clean sand beach and sitting in the lounges. The tropical landscaping on the hotel grounds was exceptional and very well maintained. There were a lot of families staying here having great time. I opted for the self parking which is across the street and operated by a non-Marriott company. It was totally full but after a couple of trips around found a convenient spot. Finally, the next AM we had the Buffet breakfast at Tropiks and found everything to be fresh, well prepared and with great service.

Stayed here over New Years celebrations. Reception and service was excellent, with lot's of activities arranged from early morning through the day. The pool area, with 2 different large outdoor pools, is great even though it was difficult to get a sun chair in the morning as all were "booked by more experienced customers" (who laid out towels in the early morning). Greta breakfast buff, clean beaches, throughout the place great services.

Room Tip: Get a ground floor room to avoid all elevator traffic

Beautifull resort. Directly on the beach. But the hotel is way too big. Very expensive. We were here to celebrate New Year. That was not a nice celebration at all. Everyone was in a boring ballroom or were in their room. Really not a nice party at all.

My husband and I traveled with our 13 and 15 year old boys for Christmas break. The hotel was sold out so our first room was on the second floor with no water view because it was blocked by the palm trees. After 2 nights they moved us to a 4th floor room near the end with a great view of the pool and gulf. Fun to sit out on the balcony and enjoy the scenery. So get a room at least at the 3rd floor level or higher. The hotel facilities, bedding, and staff were very nice. Café inside with basic breakfast, snack, and dessert foods great to have on property. The steak restaurant Kurrents was fabulous. The beach sand is white but lots of whole and broken shells on it so hard on the feet for walking barefoot. After the first day, we started to take our beach walk with sandals or tennis shoes on. From end to end it's approximately 4 miles so it makes for great walking opportunities. For excursions we booked the sail/catamaran through the hotel which was fabulous. It holds 6 people but we had only our family of 4 with Captain Jessie and she was awesome. Airboat tour in the Everglades was fun. The best was Capt. Ron's Awesome Everglade Adventures for wave runners in the Everglades. It is a must-do excursion. Check out their reviews and pictures on Trip Advisor.
