“Simply Wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2013

This was our 2nd visit and everything was as we expected: wonderful! From valet to front desk to beach attendants, this hotel has superb customer service. The first afternoon we were there staff already addressing us by name. The suites are beautiful, spacious and we were upgraded to extremely large 2 bdrm with full kitchen. This is a very luxurious, quiet hotel so if you want nonstop activity, go down to the crowds at the Marriott. We were here over spring break and there were plenty of families on the beach and the pool but we never felt like it was overcrowded and the service never suffered. Have dinner at sale d pepes! Perfect!
Minor complaint: after checkout, please provide access to changing facility for after beach.

Room Tip: End units have amazing views.

Very comfortable suite (kitchen, living room, bedroom, bath and balcony) with the sole exception of the pillows which were too soft. The beach was a very short walk from the lobby. Chaises, umbrellas, and towels provided to all (cabanas available if preferred to the umbrella). Frozen fruit drinks, lemon ice water gratis with restaurant service available at your chair. All this and the Gulf, too.

The staff are excelent. We have stayed prior to our vist once before. The Valet Staff welcomed us back. Tony said he has been there a long tome. Carmichael is great at the bar. The front desk makes us feel like old friends. Do not forget the happy hour at the pool bar. Great drinks, going back soon.

Room Tip: Get the highest room available.

A friend recommended Marco Island and we are so glad we visited. MBOR surpassed our expectations. The staff was extremely efficient and polite. As everyone has said in previous reviews, the valets were friendly and amazingly quick, the concierge was helpful and the cleaning staff did a great job. Special kudos to the beach guys and to Carmichael at the bar. Sale e Pepe was extraordinary even by our snooty NY standards :) The rooms are outfitted with all the essentials although I agree with others that they need extra drawer space. Everything was really clean. The only thing we noticed was that the shower was a bit too small. The pool area was great and the hot tub was nice and hot! Although the hotel was full, it never felt crowded and we never waited for anything. This is a great place for adults. There were kids there but there's not a lot for them to do. It was really nice for couples looking for a nice, quiet vacation. Also nice was the easy walk to the Marriott and to the shopping center with some cute shops and good restaurants. This was good if you like to have a few drinks with dinner and don't want to drive. All in all, I highly recommend MBOR and can't wait to return.

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.

My wife and I needed to get away for the 1st time since our kids were born (8 yr old & 6 yr old) so we decided to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary in Florida (needed some place warm away from North East)..A friend recommended Marco Beach Ocean Resort so we booked it with very little lead time. There was availability!! We wanted a view of the Gulf so we needed to be on floors 9-12 to get a view. We were on 11..Perfect for a sunset on the balcony drinking our bottle of champagne they sent to us as a gift for our annv....The resort is awesome and perfect for couples. Some families were there but there wasn't a lot of kids activities so I am not sure I would return there with my kids, but the Marriott 2 doors down was awesome for kids it seemed. Great service on the beach, lots to do if you wanted...This is paradise to me!!!

Room Tip: To get a room with a view of the Gulf and the beautiful sunset, request a room on 9-12 floors

We opted to pay extra and get a great room with a view. The suite with a small dining room is very nice, and the view is spectacular. Pool and beach facilities are good. The restaurant is great, the staff is friendly and helpful. Great bar and cocktails. The only negative - the suite only has a small dresser buried inside the closet and the armoires in the bedroom and the living room hold televisions but offer no other space for clothes or anything else - Also when we mentioned that the hotel might consider a small coffee bar in the lobby in the am, we were advised that the coffee bar was in the restaurant which is located in a separate building. But make no mistake, this is a nice place staffed by very good people.
