Overall the Marriott Ocean Point is a very nice location with beautiful grounds and a great view of the ocean but not a lot to do in the area outside of the hotel. Our two bedroom suite had plenty of space with two balconies off of each bedroom and living room. It had a full kitchen which was nice but limited cooking utensils (one fry pan and a couple pots) Still we were able to make some nice meals with what it had. There are three large pools and a water area for small kids like a water fun zone. Five brand new gas BBQ’s are located at one end of the property by the fully equipped gym. The bar poured some good drinks; however, they were not cheap. About $10 per mixed drink but they got your mind right after a few. There is a small shopping store but it is much better to drive across the bridge to the Publix Market with a great selection. You can also walk to a couple of bars (Longboard) which has good drinks and food at a reduced price.
Another thing to note is when you exit the freeway the area you have to drive through is not the best (keep doors locked) but gets better when you get to the bridge. The vendor on the beach wants $30 a day for chairs and umbrellas so it was easier to go to Wall Mart and buy two chairs for $21 and we left them in the room upon checkout. I did hear that the vendor will bargain with you if he is not busy which was the case when we were here.
Again, tons of kids on the week we were here (over Labor Day) so if you want to get away from small kids, this probably is not the place for you. They had an adult pool, but the kids were in that also and it did not appear staff was doing anything about it. Speaking of staff, they all seemed friendly but just make sure you don’t answer your phone or they will try to rope you into a presentation.
