The Marriott Beach resort at Ocean Point (Singer Island) is a large resort. 5 Buildings with a combination of 1, and 2 bedroom units. The property is well maintained and the units are updated. We stayed in a one bedroom unit, which had a kitchen and a bath. The units are fully furnished with all kitchen items including filters, complimentary coffee, paper towels, dish/laundry soap detergent, bath soap, conditioner and shampoo. The Living room, dining room, kitchen area are spacious, and the living room area has a pull out couch which sleeps two. Plenty of storage with washer and dryer in the unit. The resort, has a few pools on site, an outside bar/restaurant and a mini mart. There are a lot of activities, run by staff, for younger children, teens as well as adults. They always have something going on. They also have a minature golf area, as well, as a volley ball pit, BBQ area, and have other games you can borrow. They gym is nice with plenty of equipment. The Wifi is free but service is okay depending on where you are on the resort.
The negatives for us: we felt like we are on a cruise ship. It’s a big property with a lot of people, and a lot going on. So if you want a laid back quiet place, this isn’t it. The beds are extremely hard but with good pillows. The beach is a stone’s throw from the resort, but in order to obtain a chair and umbrella is a 40 dollar fee for 2 chairs and an umbrella not managed by the resort (bargain with the attendant). Times that by 5 or 6 days, and perhaps for 4 people and not two and it’s a lot of money to shell out for sitting on the beach. There isn’t a lot in the area, so if you want to get to a supermarket or Restaurant, better have a car. We drove at least 15-20 minutes each night to go to dinner and usually it was a chain restuarant.
In summary: The resort is nice, but due to the rental situation on the beach and the large amount of people on site (we really don’t like crowds) we would not go back. If you are willing to forget the cons which bother us, and might not bother you, I would definitely give it a try.
