“Great Vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

My family stayed in a 3 bedroom / 3 bath unit over Christmas. We had a great time with the beach and all of the other activities that this Marriott resort offers. We stayed in the dolphin building on the 4th floor. The ocean view was great and our unit was in excellent shape (nice furniture, 4 big flat screen TVs, etc. I would recommend this resort for the beach and for the location to Palm Beach

Room Tip: I would recommend staying in the dolphin or the cobia building as they have recently been renovated...

After reading some of the reviews before, I was very wary and had slightly low expectations, However, was pleasantly surprised at size and quality of the apartment., so I'm giving this 4/5. Ask for a high floor in dolphin building or the one next door. Ask for sea view. Nothing much to do in resort and no real food there either. Beach is dirty and uneven and you need to go out of resort for food and beach. Kitchen was not well stocked with cups/plates etc, but staff very obliging when you called for these. We are Marriott timeshare owners in Europe. Beware they will do all they can and try to lure you into a 'presentation'. My advice - dont go - not even for the lousy incentives they offer you, its just not worth a whole morning of your vacation, let alone the aggravation and the unpleasant attitude of the sales staff (they wanted 28000 dollars from us!!) and then when you tell them you have absolutely no intention of buying more time or its equivalent without due consideration, and when you want to leave then suddenly everything is a lot less 'awsome'.Also when you say you are jet lagged and need some time to look at figures etc before you sign on the dotted line they dont like it! They must think we are all morons and will do anything for a salseman we have met for a few minutes who shares immediately with you all his intimate life moments and then shows you a family picture album! What a nice regular guy he must be, and honest and trustworthy too! They try to capitalise on your supposed greed by offering an incentive and trying to obligate you.
Resort on the other hand was OK. Palm beach is a bit of a no mans land place anyway, its not Miami and its not Orlando. Publix - the supernmarket was good. Would not have stayed there had we not swapped in our timeshare week. Perfectly safe to walk outside the resort, but you MUST have a car otherwise you are stuck. No maid service, beds - uncomfortable, poolside loungers very uncomfortable.The little shop on site was overpriced and not all that well stocked.

Room Tip: Ask for sea view, high floor

Hi - we are marriott owners (not at this resort) so have stayed at many Vacation Clubs so we may be more Marriott savvy than others. Firstly Singer Island is very quiet so don't go here expecting to walk to some nightlife, this suited us so we liked that aspect. Staff are all great - special mention to Rich on Concierge who was super helpful - but they were all very friendly and helpful as we would expect from MVC. We were allocated 4411/4412 in Pompano Building as we had booked a 3 bed apartment so this is a lock-off studio with kitchenette and 2 bed apartment. This building has not been refurbished and it shows in the room decor and furnishings. When we checked in there was a door handle on the floor and a blocked toilet but both were resolved quickly. Even though it was not up to the standard we have experienced at the other MVC's, the location was great as our view of the entrance into the intracoastal and all the boats coming in and out (inc a cruise ship) was a highlight for us. One truly disappointing factor in the room was how stingy and very used the crockery and kitchenware was compared to any other MVC we have been to, the dishwasher was on constantly as the minute we had all had a meal, there were no cups etc left. Also the frying pan was quite used and there was only 2 baking trays. In addition the twin room only had sheets and blankets not duvets like the other rooms which again made it seemed a little unloved. The balconies have tiny tables which was disappointing as you cannot eat on the balcony. Having said all this we had a great week, we loved the view and the beach is fantastic (you can hire chairs etc but its cheaper to go to the surf shop down the road and buy some cheap beach chairs if you are going every day), the pools are very nice, lots of activities such as mini golf, 6 gas bbq's for guest use and generally all well kept. Our tips would be ask for a room above the 4th floor if you want a view, Sailfish Marina is a short walk away and great for food (inc breakfast) whilst watching the boats coming and going - and the herons! - so do go there even if its just for sunset cocktails. We ate at Charleys Crab on Xmas Day on Palm Beach which was superb. We also ate at Johnny Longboats which was OK but don't go if you can't afford to wait as the service is slow. Would we go again to Ocean Pointe yes from all 6 of us! We did go and look at Ocean Palms up the road and the apartments there are brand new and lovely but we still think our view of the boats (which they don't have) was more than worth it.

Room Tip: 4th floor and above have rooms.

My family and I stayed at this hotel for the 3rd time in early December. We were checked in by an associate named Jane. She wasn't as welcoming as the previous associates who checked us in on previous stays, but she did manage to get us into our villa early. So kuddos to her. The room was nice with a partial ocean view. The beds were comfortable even the pull out bed in the living room, we loved the flat screen televisions and the nice showers. The hotel had a host of activites going on throughout our stay, but my family and I just enjoyed the beach, the HUGE whirlpools and the pools. We will definitely visit this resort again and I would definitely recommend this hotel!!!!

My husband and I stayed in a studio room at the Ocean Point 4 weeks ago. We stayed for a week and had a great time! The rooms have been recently updated, we had a comfortable bed, lots of pillows, flat screen tv, small fridge, nice shower, balcony with an ocean view, etc. It was a great experience, the resort was quiet, the pool was great, the beach is a-m-a-z-i-n-g! I would definitely recommend this hotel!

Using Interval World, we traded one of our time shares to stay at this Marriott located on Singer Island. Although we are Starwood owners, we have stayed at plenty of Mariotts in the past. Unfortunately this resort, although in a great location, just does not measure up to the Mariott name or reputation. We stayed in a studio villa that was quite small but adequate. I tried to get an upgrade and even offered to pay for it. The front desk said it was not possible ( I found out that there were many empty villas available that week yet Marriott told me I would have to pay full price for the larger villa). In any event we made the best of our small accommodations. As for the resort, there is nothing to write home about. Because of Hurricane Sandy, there was virtually no beach to sit on. The pool is just ok. The gym is adequate. We are tennis players and there are 2 hard surface courts. We thus spent most of our time visiting other area in South Florida (South Beach, Palm Beach, Las Olas, etc). Not a very inspiring resort. There are plenty of other resorts much nicer and accommodating.

Larger 20 acre property nicely maintained on Singer Island next to the cut. Beach is nice with good swimming near shore and fun shelling ( sea glass is our thing). Several nice pools and very large hot tubs throughout the property. Rooms are nice but many do not have water views due to low rise buildings. Many nice nature parks in the area for kayaking. Busch Wildlife Rehab Park and Loggerhead Rehab both in Jupiter were great day trips and basically free. Not much nightlife and only a few dining options but we mainly cooked ourselves or ordered fron Tiki Hut on property...great burgers. Overall very nice snowbird resort.

Room Tip: Go as high as you can for better views...only 7 stories
