4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012

-great location right on the beach, but no restaurants within walking distance
-beautiful beach with watercraft rentals right behind the hotel
-staff was cheerful and helpful
-there is a restaurant on the premises but no outdoor areas and no entertainment. We ate at a tiki bar at the hotel next door which offered entertainment in the evenings.
-rooms were large and comfortable, but have to haggle the price.
-i would recommend this hotel for a quiet relaxing beach holiday.
-the breakfast which is included in the price has a good selection and is fresh.
-balconies are small. Will hold only 2 people

Room Tip: -you can see the ocean from the balconies on both sides of the hotel, so there isn't really a ba...

This hotel brings value for money. Big rooms, good service, clean, own kitchen (restaurant down stairs), parking, sofas, balcony -its all there.. But, make sure you do NOT have a room number ending with x07 because you will then hear the elevator all night. Hotel s just by the beach.

Extremely clean room, excellent bed linens as always in Marriotts.

Not such a great view of the ugly roof of the building to the south of our room; tiny balcony. TV is in bad location in room that is difficult to view from bed at night. Nice little kitchen, nice sized bathroom, great towels, excellent housekeeping service; very wonderful employees, outstanding free, hot breakfast, very nice bistro with good food and excellent service.

Two pools, nice and quiet. All footsteps from the beach.

Beautiful interiors.

Excellent, top of the line spa and health club amenities!

Very recommended!!!!

My family stayed at this hotel to visit our grandmother, and we were pleasantly surprised!!! Not only are the rooms extremely nice with beautiful ocean views, but they have a wonderful workout facility and a spa where you can get massages!! In addition, the staff, and manager Michael Hutchins were so kind to my 6 year old son!! We let them know we were on our way to Disneyworld and needed some advice. They took their time to give us useful suggestions and great advice!! I would not stay anywhere else. We are definitly coming back!!!!!

We stayed only one night and had an ocean view king. The room was huge and well appointed. Comfortable bedding. Walk in shower and tub. Nice. Free net.
Amenities galore with two pools. Spa services available if that's your thing. Loads of nice common areas off the beach for relaxing. Decent breakfast included. Check in and out pretty smooth.
Only negative was the $19 valet parking fee. This certainly isn't unique to this hotel but valet is not my thing.

Was told pool was heated but it is broken and both pools are cold as ice. Manager would not come out of the office to speak with me & my vacation with my 1 1/2 year old daughter is ruined. Hotel room also in need of repairs- curtains won't close in bedroom, tile is dirty. Hotel staff not very attentive-waitress was on her cell phone and ignored us. Complimentary breakfast fair to poor.

The most disturbing thing about this is that Marriott corporate is totally unhelpful either in finding another hotel for us to stay in -told me that there is nothing on the beach available in all of South Florida and then hung up on me. I WILL NEVER STAY IN ANY MARRIOTT HOTEL EVER AGAIN.

We stayed Thanksgiving week in an oceanfront two bedroom suite. What a fabulous setup. One bedroom on the left with its own oceanfront sliding glass door and balcony, living area with couch that converts to sofabed, desk and chairs, and a big picture window facing the ocean, and one other bedroom with sliding doors that has a window and balcony. Looking at the front of the hotel with your back to the water, it is the windows in the center and the balconies on the right and left of the hotel’s front. Décor is nice as well. There was a flatscreen LG TV in each of the 3 big rooms, full kitchen, small washer/dryer, nice full length mirrors, and a safe. It appears that all rooms at this hotel have a south-facing ocean view.

Full breakfast was included. Various hot foods were alternated every 3 days or so, and there were also freshly scrambled eggs, and potato and sausage. Constants were muffins, breads, fruit, yogurt, waffle maker, oatmeal, juice and coffee. A nice variety and we were very satisfied.

We found the desk staff to be very helpful. There is valet parking only, with a daily parking charge.

Lovely beach and two swimming pools, though only one pool feels like it’s heated. There are lounge chairs to use on the beach at no additional cost; small charge for a cabana-type covering. A short walk to the inlet to the left, or a fishing pier to the right.

A few areas that need attention: room maintenance. We had a broken toilet seat, hutch door handle, and a derailed door that we had to call about for fixing. Maintenance fixed all quickly. As these issues were all very obvious to us, we would have appreciated if the housekeeping staff had noticed and reported without guests’ involvement. I have to wonder if they need additional housekeeping staff as our room was cleaned between 3 and 4pm; quite late and this is the time we’re returning to freshen up. The walls of the bathrooms need a good wipe-down. Several times we called the front desk to have our car brought around, but the valet had not received the message. While somewhat minor things, if the hotel made some adjustments as noted above, this could really be the perfect beach hotel.

There is a nice playground and outdoor adult workout area a little south of the hotel by the pier.

We ate at Houston’s on the Intracoastal and Atlantic Avenue and it was fabulous. Shopped at Publix for groceries. Dandee Donuts on Atlantic had really good donuts. We had one cloudy day so we went on an Everglades airboat ride. Check out the coupons on display near the computers in the hotel’s lobby level as there are coupons for various venues. Note the airboat ride requires purchasing earplugs which I wish I’d known; I prefer cottonballs and would use them next time instead of the bulky earplugs that don’t work well for me. We did see a large gator. Also we learned that since gators are nocturnal, it’s best to do the tour in the morning.

Taxi back to FLL airport from Residence Inn was $49 plus tip

Would I come back? Probably.
