If you book this hotel you will be pleased. The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful. Everybody makes you feel welcome with a smile or hello. It was nice to be very close to the beach. There is only one pool and when I was there it was always packed with kids splashing. I didn't mind but could see other people that didn't like it. The room was very nice and comfy. If you decide to rent a car please know that it costs $23.00 a night to park. Overall it is a very nice hotel and I would stay again.

The beachfront location was pristine and the hotel was beautiful but it was the staff that made our stay. Each time you passed a staff member - be it at the pool, restaurant, hallway or lobby - they at the very least smiled genuinely and said hello. More often than not they asked how we were enjoying our stay and if they could get us anything. Everyone was personable, professional, and welcoming. This is by far the best Marriott stay I have experienced. The hotel layout is very well done and easy to navigate. An adult pool is always a plus for my travel needs but they don't seem to have space to add a seperate swim area. Drinks are pretty overpriced but they are very well made and served with a smile. Our bartenders comped us a round when we were waiting for our poolside snack which has NEVER happened to me at a hotel. Well done Marriott!

My husband and I used this hotel as a getaway after the hectic weeks of and before our son's wedding. Although it was pouring down rain the evening that we arrived, the rest of our stay the weather was perfect with just a sprinkle in the early evening. The beach (which was the reason we went to Florida) was gorgeous, clean and had to be shared with only 30-40 people during the day. We heard that it's much more crowded on the weekends. The entire hotel was recently remodeled and is absolutely beautiful - both the common areas and the rooms. Our oceanview balcony was definitely worth the $ more per day. Although there were some families staying there as well as conference goers, once we entered our room we heard virtually nothing. The quiet was a surprise and most welcome. We ate every evening in one of the two main restaurants, or had delilcious appetizers in the bar area. All the food was wonderful. My only complaint is that the location doesn't make it easy to walk to other restaurants and stores. If we stayed here again we would probably rent a car. But all in all, it's a fabulous property and perfect for a short getaway.

This hotel was fabulous for us and our 3 children (ages 17, 13, 7). Everyone has a great time at the pool, which had plenty of towels and chairs for everyone. There is an afternoon snack time at the pool which was a much anticipated treat everyday. The beach is clean and since it is a private beach the crowd was small. There are water activities available for purchase - scuba, snorkeling, parasailing, jet ski's, and some fun kids things like a trampoline in the water. There are also complimentary towels for the guests to use at the beach, which were in abundant supply. The room was nice, with comfortable beds and pillows. Each morning a USA Today newspaper was delivered to our door. The television channels were hard to figure out, but we didn't go to Fort Lauderdale to watch t.v. so I didn't care as much as my son. The bathroom is well-lit, roomy, plenty of towels, and plenty of hot water. Due to the water softener it took a lot to get the shampoo and conditioner out of our hair. The stock the restroom with Bath & Body supplies, so better than the run of the mill products. We ordered Pizza Hut from room service one night and they were quick. They brought it in on a rolling table with a tablecloth, real flatware and water glasses. Above and beyond at every turn. I would highly recommend to stay here if you are looking for a relaxing beach getaway!!

The location is excellent. The pool is big, but still crowded. If you are traveling for a peaceful beach getaway this is not the place. The staff seemed preoccupied. They charge $26 a day for valet which I thought was a little excessive. On the other hand, the rooms are small but well appointed. Most hotels are putting widescreen HD tvs in their rooms, but this is the only hotel I have stayed in that actually recieves HD programming. Very nice!! The on-site dining was just ok, nothing special. I would recommend it, but take a cab from the airport!!
