Relaxing weekend

Nice hotel. Small parking lot in front with the all the spaces full. There is a back lot but too far. So we just paid for valet. You have to get a pool view. At first we were given a golf / parking lot view and this room was far from the elevator. It was a long way to lug our bags. The room was nice but it was way too lonely at that part of the hotel. So we called and paid extra for the pool view. Worth it! Pool area is nice looking with soft carribbean music playing. Also, closer to the elevator, main lobby and pool. The pool gets packed so get there early. The breakfast buffet was awesome. Very good food. There's nothing really to do at night. There's a club but looked dead. It's ok, our goal was just to chill at the pool all day to drink, eat, swim and catch rays. Mission accomplished! If your goal is similar to ours you'll be good! All in all, we had a great stay. Just try to get a pool view beforehand and remember the self parking lot sucks.

I Have Stayed In Cleaner Motels!

This place is a mess!!! Do not be fooled by the nice lobby. 20 years ago, when this place first opened up, it was beautiful. Unfortunately, that was the last time that someone bothered to clean and/or paint this place and/or change the furniture! The carpet in the hallways are full of stains, the one in one of the elevators was coming apart. Our initial room had a big line running through the wall! The next room didn't have the line on the wall but it had the same furniture, carpet and bathroom from 20 years ago. Before leaving the hotel the staff tried to get me in a suite but the coach in the suite had more stains on it than I could count! Definitely not a four star resort! Or even a three star resort! I had two free nights with Marriott but I decided to go to another hotel where I had to pay instead of this hotel!

Great family vacation

Great place for a family vacation. We have stayed at numerous places in the area and the Renaissance is by far our favorite. Clean rooms, good service and great atmosphere.
