My bridesmaids and I stayed here the first night of my bachelorette weekend. The staff was friendly and we were upgraded to a fantastic suite. The breakfast selection was great and their spa sounded pretty nice as well. We didn't get a chance to visit, unfortunately. Great place for family!

-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.
