My husband and I stayed at the Marco Beach Ocean Resort the beginning of Jan. 2013. We had a great time. We were looking for an adults oriented resort for our 25th wedding anniversary and were pleased to find there were primarily couples and very few children. The Marriott next door which was significantly larger seemed to cater to younger children with more pools and a game room for kids as well as catering to conventions - one of which was going on while we were there. The room was nicely decorated and the kitchenette although small had everything we needed to grab a quick breakfast and lunch. The only complaint I have about the room was the dresser was in the closet making it difficult to retrieve our clothes. Other than that the service was excellent and we were especially impressed with Branka who went out of her way to give us recommendations and make reservations for dinner. If you are looking for a family friendly resort which is much more crowded and noisy I would choose the Marriot next door but if you are looking for a relaxing, romantic resort with great service the Marco Beach Ocean resort is for you.
PS: As many of the other reviewers indicated stay on floors 9 and above to get a great view of the beach. We were on the 11th floor and enjoyed great views of the ocean and sunsets over the water.
