Beautiful grounds; great villa ammenties.
The need to tag beach chairs at 7am while on vacation is quite annoying.
The pools, lazy river, jacuzzis, water slide and beachfront were great and clean, and the staff was super friendly and helpful, as were many of the guests. The location is very good. There are a large number of off site restaurants and shops within a mile of the hotel. There is always pretty immediate access to taxis. The room was very clean and had some nice amenities, like a decent sized mini fridge and a microwave, as well as a small set of dishes and silverware. The bathroom was clean and comfortable, with plenty of storage space in the vanity.
They consider any room where you can see any little sliver of the ocean to be "Ocean View", whereas any other resort I've stayed at would have called it a partial ocean view. In the first room, we had a view of the pool and lazy river, and if we leaned out over the balcony and looked right, we could see a little slice of ocean. I complained and they moved us, but the next view was only somewhat better. Several staff members admitted to me that they get that complaint a lot. For the size of the rooms, the limited view, and how outdated they were, I wish I'd have spent a little extra and stayed at the Hyatt. We were also called every day of our stay, trying to get us to come to a time share demonstration. This was a bit annoying. The bed was uncomfortable, but I have back issues, and almost every bed but my own bothers my back. My husband also complained of being uncomfortable. The room was very small for the price. There is only one restaurant on site, unless you include those at the Ocean Club and Stellaris Casino. We didn't go there because my husband had some mobility issues, and it was a bit far for him to walk. So we ate at the Galley several times for lunch. The food was ok. One day, it made us both pretty sick.
The property was very big with a lot to do. Very family oriented although we didn't bring kids. However, everyone kept their kids under control. Not once did I feel annoyed by children!!!! The staff around the resort did their best to keep everyone happy. Not complaints here
Room was just fair. Nothing to write home about. Front desk said my bed was a Queen but it seemed way smaller than mine. However, it was clean!
Marriott always has the most comfortable beds.
We liked the lazy river and bought ahead of our trip floaters that worked out nicely they even have a air station to fill up your floater. The weather is always warm and they never have seasons just year round in the eightys. Very clean and well kept up with security people around watching for our safety and very friendly. Enjoyed the iguana while floating in river and watching people feed them.
The food prices are high.
