You can’t beat the location right on the beach and next to great restaurants. But this has to be the worst Marriott we have ever stayed at. We requested a room upgrade and they moved us from a marina view room to a room with no view, we couldn’t even complain to the front desk though because they were way too busy.

You can’t beat the location right on the beach and next to great restaurants. But this has to be the worst Marriott we have ever stayed at. We requested a room upgrade and they moved us from a marina view room to a room with no view, we couldn’t even complain to the front desk though because they were way too busy. We weren’t told that we had to request housekeeping so we didn’t get any room service our whole stay. Our bathroom was awful. Multiple spots of black mold on the grout, rust stains on the tub, the bathroom fan didn’t work, and the plug for the tub didn’t work so you couldn’t take a bath even if you wanted. There was also a 3 foot long spot of fraying carpet. It was really bad, not just slightly fraying. And we also found an empty alcohol bottle under our bed. Overall we were disappointed in the room and service. Definitely not what we are used to when staying at a Marriott. Read less

We have stayed here previously and we’re not pleased but we thought the hotel had been updated. We were unpleasantly surprised. Not only has it not been updated but it has not been maintained. The loose tiles on the patio are still loose from our last visit over Five years ago. It’s a wonder that no one has gotten hurt. We have seen so many people trip on the tiles. The whole hotel looks worn and unkempt. They are clearly short on staff because the common area are not clean. There is garbage on the ground and everything has a dirt look. There are basically no amenities. There is no restaurant and the pool bar has limited hours. The only thing it has going for it is friendly, courteous staff. We will NEVER stay here again and we suggest you don’t either. The worst quality Marriott we have ever experienced Read less

Old moldy pizza was in my room! The room had a horrible smell! The excursions I booked with the hotel was 2hrs away!!! I ended up having to rent a car, which was not on my plans! Hotel pool was a joke, half the chairs near the pool was broken or ripped, bartender was horrible!!!!

Would not stay at this hotel again. They can not handle the spring break crowds. Did not get our room until 7:30pm and it was not the room we reserved. This happens every year seems like they could be prepared.
