We just returned from a week stay at Fairway Villas. The resort is very well kept as are all Mariott properties however the chairs and sofa in the the living room are very uncomfortable. While there are many activities at the resort if you want to do anything else you must drive 20 - 30 minutes to get to anything. IT didn't seem to have the same "resort" feeling that you get from some of the other properties.
Request a top floor room because if you don't you will hear everything that goes on above you. It was very noisy when our upstairs neighbors got up in the morning. The pool was nice but it was very very crowded! There were screaming kids everywhere. We headed to the mineral pool by the spa and it was a little better but very crowded and it was difficult to find a chair if you wanted to sit in the sun.
If you are vacationing as a family with children this might be a good spot but if you are looking to kick back and relax and not have to drive all over the place this is not the place for you.
We did enjoy our trips to the boardwalks in Seaside Heights and Ocean City, NJ. The beaches there were outstanding and the boardwalk was fun for people watching and shopping for funny t-shirts.

Room Tip: Request 3rd floor or you will hear your upstairs neighbors.

My husband and I own timeshare at Marriott's Fairway Villas and decided to go there after not having visited in three years or so. Unlike the other Marriott properties we've visited in Florida, Fairway Villas did not send an email a few weeks in advance to invite us to select unit preferences and activities. I felt that was so strange that I checked my confirmation a few times to ensure my check in date was correct.

On turning into the resort, I was immediately struck by how subdued the energy was (versus Florida). There were lots of cars parked in the lots, but not many guests around. At the registration desk, when I asked for the most updated unit, the guest service rep replied that all of the units were the same. I asked for a top floor unit so that we wouldn't have to deal with hearing heavy footsteps above our heads, but none was available and so we were assigned a ground floor unit in The Breakers building.

As we walked down the hall in The Breakers building to our 2-bedroom unit, I noticed a tiny piece of wallpaper that had come undone and an awful carpet stain across from my assigned unit. I wondered why they had not taken care of these issues. Maintenance and Housekeeping had to have seen it on their rounds.

Our assigned unit had a great, fresh clean smell. It appeared much more spacious than the Florida units I've been in due in large part to the layout. The kitchen and dining area is open while other units in Florida tend to section off the kitchen from the dining area. I was very impressed with the 2nd bedroom which was also larger than most I've seen. And except for a carpet stain in the master bedroom and a loose shower cover plate, everything in the unit was fine and in order. We did have noisy neighbors above our heads, but it wasn't something we were willing to complain about and risk offending them.

Instead of a full-service Marketplace, they have a Marketplace Express which is literally a tiny room with candy, snacks and beverages. The lack of the full-service Marketplace is definitely a minus. Something just seems amiss without it.

This place is great for couples and for visiting all year round. It's close to the casinos and has good shopping. Although there are lots of onsite activities for all ages, I believe my kids would've been bored half to death. Like I said, the energy is low-key and the resort is located in an area that caters to an older population.

Just returned from a weekend stay at the Marriott Seaview Villas. We try to come every year. Rooms were very clean and neat. There are great activities for the kids and many are complimentary. All said, you can have a very relaxing vacation when you stay here. Wish that there were more dining options at the hotel next door. Not sure what's happening there. Anyhow, you can still have a great time with many other restaurants in the area.

Although not on the beach, this very nice resort offers golf, pools, spa and close proximity to the best beaches at the Jersey Shore. And if gambling is your thing, Atlantic City is 10 minutes away. But it is the relaxing woodlike setting that gives this resort a relaxing family atmoshere.

The night before we were to check in we got a call that the resort did not have electricity. They were expecting electricity to be back in 5 days. So we would not have electricity the entire time we would be there (summer time). We told them to cancel our reservation but they said they could not and to call the next day. I did alert them we were coming from California and will not be able to reach the till 3 pm ( time of check in). I tried to call several Marriott customer service and tried to cancel online but I couldn't. Upon arrival in New Jersey, we called and they said they still didn't have electricity and they will compensate us but to give them time since there are many guests they have to work with. I have not heard back for anyone and it is almost a month. I have tried calling marriott and this resort but have had my calls transferred. I was told I should have gotten insurance. I have paid so any fees being a marriot vacation club owner, and paid more for their new point system and they want more fees for unforeseen events.
