“Can't beat The Charter Club”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2010

We just got back from a week's stay at The Charter Club. We stayed in the North Tower on the Sixth Floor overlooking the Gulf. It was beautiful start and end to every day watching periodic visiting dolphins and figuring out what that "black" thing was in the heat of the day with the sun shining above the clear Gulf (probably a manatee). .

Our unit, like all, was recently renovated and was beautiful. Nothing to complain about at The Charter Club and I would highly recommend this place to anyone. When we were there, however, they were having a major problem with a water leak and about nine units were destroyed. We were originally supposed to be on the third floor but from my understanding, everything from the third floor down was ruined in the North Tower. They worked on it all week.

Staff and workers were very friendly and professional. There are daily activities by the pool, one day a fashion show w/ free sub sandwiches promoting a local store, one day was an ice cream social for $3 pp; one day FREE Margaritas. There is always table tennis/shuffle board in the activity area and things for little kids to do for a small fee like painting sand dollars/kritters, making sand bottles, etc.

The location was further down than we thought and all the beach action seemed to be toward the Marriott and Eagle's Next but we didn't mind that our beach didn't have a lot of people like theirs. Our sand was very shelly....we are used to Siesta Key soft white sand and most of the sand in front of TCC was filled with broken shells are rough on the feet.

The Hobies ARE free to those staying there as well as the Kayaks. You just have to book in advance. The guys are all so nice and will take care of you.

A must see is Tigertail beach on the complete opposite end (North)! Its sand is pristine, soft and white and the shelling there is unbelievable. We snorkeled to find shells and came up with some beauties within minutes. I found my first worm shell, something I've never seen before (and then lost it when it fell out of my shell bag which I discovered later). I heard people finding sea horses and there were live starfish everywhere (even down by TCC).

Tigertail is a pain to get to and we actually walked THREE miles there and back from TCC, all in three hours. We were exhausted but glad we saw it. You can go to this public beach and walk through the disgusting lagoon to get there or AROUND the lagoon with is also a hike. We were up for adventure so we just walked the beach to get to it and stopped here and there along the way to snorkel/find shells.

Not much to do in Marco...right across from TCC is a little area with a few restaurants and a comedy show and that's about it. We found ourselves driving into Naples for stuff to do. That was our only disappointment in Marco.

The charter club was a wonderful place for a vacation. The unit we were in was on the 5th floor in the South building overlooking the pool and beach. Marvelous views morning and night. Exceptionally clean when we arrived. Many nice amenities including pool, hot tub, fitness center, grill to cook on, and washer/dryer combination in unit.

We stayed at The Charter Club on Marco Island for Spring Break 2010 and we were extremely pleased! The rooms are clean, beautiful and spacious! The resort is very family friendly...we would highly recommend it to anyone trying to decide where to stay on Marco Island...you will not be disappointed one bit! They had several activities going on all week for the kids (and adults) and they have plenty of beach games to enjoy too. Many people staying there had been coming back for 10 years plus. Our family loved this vacation!

Stayed at this hotel with my family (mom, dad, sister, sister's boyfriend, and my fiancee) for the night when I drove down from Orlando with my fiancee to visit some of my family that had flown in and also show my fiancee around the place I was born and lived as a small child.

The hotel consists of two towers, a north tower and south tower. Our room was on the tenth floor of the south tower with an amazing view from the balcony of the beach and Gulf of Mexico. The room had a full kitchen, two bedrooms, two bathrooms, washer\dryer, and a spacious living room with a pull out couch. Flat screen TVs and DVD players in the rooms. Large balcony with sliding door access from the living room and one of the bedrooms allows you to keep the glass door open to listen to the waves all night.

There is a large pool and a large hot tub open til 10 pm nightly. Tennis and bocce ball courts are on site as well. Direct beach access is available via a walk way connected to the pool area.

Overall, this place is great and I hope to spend a night or two, three, or four here again in the future.

MY Stay and my friends stay was great there the room was nice the veiw great and the night live was a little lacking but luckly i found a someone that worked there i cant remember his name but he had a ponytail . This young man told me of diffrent places my friends and i could go at night and this helped make our trip . but one day we went looking for the rec supervisor to see if we could get some bike tires aired up to ride around the island we couldnt find him and when we did he must have been sick because he seemed out of it but when we did go out on our ride the day was beautiful and we couldnt have hoped for more.

Spent a week at the Wilderness Lodge in Disney and then a week at Charter Club. Exactly what I needed after a hectic week at Disney! Absolutely breath-taking views of the gulf, laid-back and relaxing. The condo itself was nice but the furnishings in the living room really need to be upgraded with leather sofa's, flat screen tv's and tacky wall paper in the bathroom needs to be removed and re-done with granite & saturnia tile. I also feel the beach chairs & umbrellas should be included with the price. With those changes this would be a 5 star place!

If you are looking for a relaxing trip on the beaches of Marco Island, the Charter Club of Maroc Beach is the answer. Our two bedroom accomodations featured large rooms, updated kitchen, and abundant views of the gulf. It may not have all the bells and whistles of the newer resorts, but exposure to the gulf is unparalleled. The unit was clean and the service staff helpful. Great vacation!!!!!!
