“Wow, what a gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2011

Was looking for a Marriott property along the southern West Florida coast, and found this through Trip Advisor. Am writing this during my stay. My comments -
- Front desk very accomodating and called us when the room was ready for early checkin. Gave us towels and made us feel welcome.
- The location is wonderful! A wide open beach that is almost deserted. There is a long boardwalk paved path that starts at the hotel.
- The pool is smallish but see the reference to the ocean above.
- Lots of nice places to eat in addition to the Bubba Gump tourist traps. Try the Conch Republic for Grouper, Yum!!
- Ask for a high floor. Anything 4 or below may be blocked.
- They will welcome pets but only on floor 2 or 3, so be prepared for a crappy view if you bring Fido!!
- Our suite is spacious with a full kitchen, stainless appliances, flat cooktop, etc. The bathroom is very nice with granite standup shower (no tub).
I am Platinum Marriott and this is one of the nicest RI's I've ever stayed in. I have no reservations about recommending this property!

Room Tip: High floor, ask for corner room for best view.

Well, We weren't even the only reunion. Simultaneously, there was ANOTHER Irish family ! We taxed these nice people's patience with our exuberance, more than once.
The management and staff was very nice..helpful and tolerant. Some of my family chatted at the pool area until 4 a..m. Yipes !

Most of us had 1-3 bedrooms and management allowed us to use the breakfast/bar area on sat & Sun/Mon nights to host buffets that we brought in. This was perfect, as there is no room or hall where a large group, much less.. 60 members of a family to congregate.

Breakfast was a much anticipated event here, I don't think anyone misses it.. they have make your own waffles... with toppings ... eggs, some sort of meat, breads, cereals and lots of yogurts.. and some fruit.. also cereal.. juices . The breakfast attendant was considerate, one day extending the 9:30 a.m. cut off to 10 as he saw how busy the hotel was.. we'd filled it to capacity.

My room, a 1 bedroom, was large and had two balconies.. not facing the ocean. Ironing board, hair dryer, full, large kitchen, a fairly comfortable pull out sofa..ceiling fans and lots of bureaus. Lighting was fine and the a/c was good. No tub.. but a nice shower. We did not experience the 'cocktail hour' .. I was disappointed to not find a cocktail lounge. They had beer and wine, and I think they could make a lot of money if they made a real bar area. . Parking was fine and the elevator somewhat inadequate . The pool was clean although on the small side.., they need more umbrellas.., people couldn't escape the august sun and I have no idea what THAT"S about..
I didn't smell cig smoke for 5 days. It was great.. not even on the beach.

August n Tampa is not ideal to socialize on the beach or at the pool.( The water was like a bath..). Nevertheless, we will probably plan our next family reunion right back at this facility. Let this serve as a warning to the staff !

Room Tip: 2nd floor is level of lobby and breakfast

We really enjoyed our two day stay at this hotel. Beautiful beach,very nice and helpful staff and a pretty good breakfast. They were great about an early check in and anything else we asked for. Rooms were very clean,great views from the balcony and a very convenient location.We had no problems with the elavator( we stayed at the 6 story) and really no problem with breakfast. Yes we had to sit on the stools at the bar one morning but no big deal. The pool was fun. The only complaints I have has to do with people at the pool. Unfortunately it is a small pool and there should be more rules about using floatation devices in the pool and what kind of ball should be used in the pool. Examples: the pool was fairly crowded and two people were playing catch with a real football. Now if it hits someone it could break a nose or do other damage. Since some people are not smart enough to realize this ,a sign should be posted that states only the nerf or similiar soft type balls should be used. People were nervous about moving near the throwers so everyone was crowded to one side. Another example: the pool was fairly crowded and people come in with these 5 or 6 ft long rafts without any thought to others . I was amazed by the inconsideration displayed by both parties.So I think these two rules should be added for the safety of your guests. However that did not spoil the great time we had there. We had a two bedroom and was impressed by the size of the room and the comfort. Would stay there again

We had a lot of fun at our family reunion with about 65 attendees. Management and the service staff were more than accomodating! The room was clean, beautifully decorated and the kitchen equipment was just about everything we needed. The breakfast far exceeded our expetations and the staff at breakfast was cheerful and helped us with anything we needed. Parking was convenient and so was shopping. The wide beach was beautiful and clean and the waves were just right!

It was nice to have all the space in this 3 bedroom/2bathroom unit. We had kitchen and dining/living area, but how these bathrooms passed building code is beyond me. The sinks are troughs, truly 24 inches about 14inchs wide, but only about 4 inches deep, so it can't hold much water. You only have about 5inchs of space for personal items. The only electrical outlet is next to the sink, but there is no place to put the hairdryer except into the empty sink! Towel racks are non-existent as well, only an 18inch shelf above the toilet! So be careful what you put there or on the rack as it may end up in the toilet. You don't have enough room to hang bath and hand towels to reuse, especially with humidity this is important. There wasn't a hook on the door either to hang toiletry bag. Closets were another design flaw, just a slat in the with a back, no door and not a place to store your luggage, what were they thinking? The 2nd bathroom was worse. You have a hairdryer, but there is no electrical outlet in the bathroom! I have never been to a major hotel chain and not have an outlet. Again you have the same trough sink, but can't use this bathroom to dry your hair, this was a problem with 3 women. The breakfast was terrific, lots of food and options, plenty of seating and clean. Hotel has nice bar area with reason drink prices, staff was helpful with recommendations for restaurants and take out. The Shake Shack in the parking lot is a must, very reasonable ice cream options. Nice pool and easy access to beach. Beach is wide so it is a walk to the shore. Hotel was in good location, easy parking and lots to do in area, biggest down fall were the bathroom designs.

Booked Hotel & Flights with Funway Holidays, trip was paid in full befofe arrival. On checking in was asked for cerdit card details as many hotels do.

Had a great stay at hotel.

On receiving cerdit card statment after return to the UK, I had been charged the whole amount for my stay at the hotel again. After contacting the hotel direct, I received no help or interest in resolving the matter and was just told to contact the Travel Agent I had booked with. Think twice before leaving Cerdit Card details.

Room Tip: Ask for room 301 at the back of the hotel, good veiws.
