The best way I can sum up our experience at the Resort is the fact that in the last 7 years my wife and I have had annual stays of about 4 weeks each. Some of the reasons we keep returning are the very large, comfortable and quiet rooms in the Reefside section which overlook the Philippine Sea, the outstanding breakfast and luncheon buffets, the friendly and helpful staff, the wide range of facilities offered and what we consider to be very favorable rates. It is located in a beautiful area in the northern part of Saipan and has the largest grounds of any hotel on the island - 144 hectares. The facilities for golfers include the hotel's 18 hole golf course, a nine hole short course and a driving range. Several pools are provided including a large children's pool next to the main, salt water pool and in the Mandi Asian Spa which does a fine job of pampering guests. Our rooms always have had a large bathroom with separate bathtub and glassed-in shower and the toilet in an adjacent room. We have enjoyed the many amenities that are provided and kept well-stocked. There are two double beds, a sitting area with table and cushioned chairs, a lounge chair, a small refrigerator, a balcony with chairs of its own and a good-sized TV with a variety of channels. We enjoy sitting of the balcony for sunsets over the Sea and enjoying the night-time sky. NOTE: To enjoy the quiet - the only sound is the surf - turn off the room's air conditioning unit before settling on the balcony. The room will remain cool since the AC functions quite well at all times. Also, while
you are a few miles from the main town on Garapan, it is easy to get there using the regular shuttle bus which operates into the l0 p.m. hour. Two last items: The food is first rate, plentiful and the buffets feature different offerings each day. For instance, at lunch there are two different kinds of sushi rolls, an area with hot foods such as tempura, fish, meat and vegetable offerings, and - one of our favorites - a dessert table. And, regarding the facilities, we have seen - over the past two years - an increase in updating and providing new facilities. For instance, in the dining areas new, comfortable chairs were installed and a new performance stage for the three-times-a-week shows (which include dances from various Pacific islands) was created. While there is more that we can say about the Mariana Resort and Spa, we can update this next year when we return for our eighth stay in 8 years.
