“Great option if you need the space”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2014

Stayed here as a quick stop to visit University of Miami and South Beach all in one day. This property is close in proximity but there is a lot of traffic going to and from the property to these areas. Property is very clean, spacious 2 bedroom, 2 bath units across the Trump Doral.

Stayed in a villa far from the construction on property and was out all day so it wasn't a bother.
Take a the Marriott shuttle to the Doral as they charged us $15 valet parking fee even though we ate at their restaurant by the pool. I called in advance and they said it was two hours free. Confusing situation as to the reciprocity between the two resorts and pool usage. This needs to be addressed. Try Carolina Ale House next door for take out and dine in. The Original Pancake House for breakfast.

Arrived a bit earlier than check inn time, but staff helped us get to our room as we were traveling with a toddler. The property is beautiful and clean, the pool is large and is situated on the outskirts of a lake, no problems for chairs and towels were available poolside. Ate a couple of times from the poolside restaurant and the food was good.
The room was clean and extremely well put together, it felt like a home away from home. The kitchen was equipped with brand new stainless steel appliances and fully stocked with all the necessary utensils and dish cleaning products. They were also replenished daily. The bedroom were large and comfortable and spacious enough for a family of 6.
We will definitely return to this property!

Room Tip: Ask for the main building especially when traveling with young children

We stay every year at this Villa and have alwayse received excellent attention overall and very polite. The location is very safe and has numerous options such as a nice pool and one heated pool plus barbecue areas. Very close to most Malls and highly recommended. Everything very clean.

Room Tip: A Corner High floor room is to our opinion the best

I have stayed at Marriott timeshares all over the country. This one looked like a typical newly renovated timeshare, but I definitely had a few disappointing things happen.
1. There was construction at a neighboring property that woke us up everyday at 7am. Very loud trucks with backup beeping noises and banging of typical building construction. This was also very loud at the pool at the timeshare and could be seen from room and the pool. When we checked in, we were told we were far from the construction and that it shouldn't bother us at all.
2. We were given a handicapped room that we did not ask for. This make for a less than desirable layout. The bathroom was way too big and this took space away from the master bedroom. I think it was the reason that we had a washer/dryer that was one in the same. A converter. The problem is you could not do 2 loads at the same time and the dryer took more than 2 cycles to dry clothes (at least 2 hours).
3. The air conditioning did not circulate evenly throughout the unit. The master bedroom did not seem to get enough air.
4. The bed configuration in the second bedroom was not typical. There was one queen bed and a sofa bed. We just came from Beachplace in Ft. Lauderdale that had a king bed along with a plush nice queen sofa bed. When we opened up the sofa bed at the Villas at the Doral, we could barely walk around the bed to get to the bathroom or queen bed.
5. The biggest disappointment was that we were only allowed to use one pool and half of it's seating at The Trump Doral. I called before making my reservation and spoke to both the people at Marriott and at The Trump Doral and was told we would have full access to the Trump Doral property. That was why we chose this property. Upon check in I was told that 2 of the 3 pools at The Trump Doral were closed for a private group for more than a week. FYI- for future people booking, this private group has been coming to the Trump Doral for around 6 years. Don't be surprised to find this happens again during future spring breaks/Passover. If you want to research it, the group is part of Eden Tours. The pool that we were allowed to use was beautiful. The setting was just gorgeous and the lounge chairs were extremely comfortable. Though my kids were disappointed not to be able to use the pool with the water slide. They felt even worse about the situation, because when they peaked into the pool area that had the slides, there was not a single person there most of the time.

I also felt that the food/drinks at the restaurant at the Trump Doral pool were not up to the standard that I would expect from this kind of resort. I had a fizzy Bloody Mary one day and a Watermelon Margarita that was so salty and tart that I had to send back. (The waitress later came over and told me she tried the drink and agreed it was terrible. She said the bartender was new.) The 3 tvs at the pool bar did not work at all during our 1/2 week at the property. My salad was drenched in dressing and the food in general was nothing special.

The new BLT steak restaurant at the Trump Doral was excellent. Fabulous service, view and food. If you stay at the Marriott, I highly recommend having dinner there one night. You can't beat the ease of getting there.

I was in town on business while my family enjoyed the pool and the Miami area. The condo was very nice and we could not have asked for a nicer place to stay for what we paid. The check in went great, the cleaning crews were very friendly and always had a smile and the greeting of the day. Now the not so good. Upon checkout I inquired about possible joining the Marriott Owners programs and was told to call the Marketing Executive who would be in later. I called her around the lunch and told her what I was looking to do and would like to come down for another stay in the summer and a owner's tour of the property. She told me she would need a few hours to check on my requested dates and she would call me back when she knew more. Four hours later I had not heard from her so I called her back and she stated she was with a customer and she would call me in 15 minutes. SEVEN days later, still no call back. I have left messages for the property GM everyday this week, four times total, and he still hasn't returned my phone calls. I have to wonder why anyone would invest in ownership in a company that does not care about their potential customers. I called Mr. Cliff Delorey, VP of Marriott Vacations, and left a message for him yesterday and he hasn't called back. For a company build by a family who cared about the customers, I guess those days are over. Five stars for 99.9% of the stay, but a One star for what matters most, customer service.

Room Tip: There is construction going on next to the property so request a room away from this area. Not a bad...

Upscale two bedroom apartment, with golf course, pool, access to Trump Doral, and excellent location. Shuttle within 2 miles for easy dining. No airport shuttle, so rental car or taxi is the only problem. Very well decorated.

Odd location in a very industrial part of town. The property does show it's age. If not for golf we probably wouldn't come here. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The place is very clean and pretty we'll maintained.
