Better options for less...

It's nice but not worth the price. Pros: comfortable beds, great service, aweseome location. Cons: price compared to others in area, pool is outdated and boring, price.

Great location! That's about it!

Title states it all! This is just a hotel and should not be marketed as a resort and spa. The hotel is old and needs a major face lift!

Pre Thanksgiving Trip

Great location with perfect beach for little kids across the street. Tons of food options and ABC stores close by. Easy to reach other places on the island and the weather here was great!

Dining tip: In Hotel

every Friday,Saturday and Sunday evening, enjoy a prime rib and all you can eat crab buffet...early bird special for $30. I also loved their breakfast buffet with the macadamia nut waffles or pancakes with coconut syrup...you can buy the syrup to take home at any ABC store. Also, d.k. steakhouse offers 25% off bill if you are hotel guests and they served the most amazing rib eye steak with demi glace.

Meh, did it's job I suppose

The rooms are fine, location is right where you want it. However, re-think getting a rental car, costs $32 daily for parking in the garage. Side note, only rental offered on site if Hertz. Restaraunts on site are very expensive, even compared to other restaraunts in the area, found it surprising you don't get a discount as a guest. No umbrellas because people steal them, but they have perfect accountability of gym/beach towels. Stuck with a mandatory service/amenitity fee for Wi-Fi, newspaper, room phone despite insisting it was not wanted. Honestly, there are "only two reasons to get this hotel," first is location because it's right across from the beach and the second is for a view of the ocean. If neither of those are high priorities and you don't mind walking a few blocks from another, more in-land, hotel then I wouldn't personally recommend this hotel considering the needlessly expensive features boasted at this location. Good showers and bed, found it comfortable to stay in, just definitely felt we overpaid.

Great vacation!

We had a great stay at the Marriott Hotel! It was located in a busy area with a lot to do. The Marriott had great restaurants, a little pricey but delicious! The $30 resort fee a night was really not necessary.

Lovely Hotel

This was my second stay on this hotel and I really like the venue. It was a pleasant experience and I would go back again. My only question was that I upgraded to a Leisure Oceanview room and expected to have a full on ocean view as oposed to the side view facing the Aston hotel. I got the same room I had the last time I was there when I had a partial ocean view. It is difficult to know what you are getting when you make reservations.

Eat at Tiki's Grill at the Aston across the street. Food is good, staff is super and they have live music every evening.

If I could give less then 1 I would

57 mins to check in, only 2 employees behind the counter and both employees took vip Marriott members first, and that line never ended. the couple ahead of us complained and a 3rd employee came to check regular members in. After spending $200+ for a upgrade from partial ocean view to Liesure ocean view I found out that upgrade only raised my floor level not the location of the room verses the ocean. I complained and only after stating "live and learn, I guess I'm just a Hilton girl" did they offer to switch us to a better view. Also the first room was extremely tiny. A slider door that didn't lock, for the toilet room door, and it was so tiny I hit my head standing up from the toilet. The showers were interesting, they only sprayed straight at the opposing wall. No tilt to the mounting. Customer serves was horrid!!!! I asked about pool towels and was half answered and I tried to get a more specific answer and she shooed me away. Resteraunt DK Steak house.....the worst customer service in my life, we waited 1 hour for our drinks all the while the waiter seats a table next a to is serves them drinks and appetizers and takes their meal order, yet we haven't even been given the chance to order appetizers. The pool had crumbles of chlorine tablets all over the pool bottom and around the pool. Parking was outrageous, Hilton charges $25 per day Marriott was $38 selves park per day or $36 without tip per vallet parking. And vallet was outside directly across the street with no need for vallet attendants. If your looking for a quiet beach this is not the place, beach has lots if coral that we and everyone else were slicing our feet on because the wave are huge, as such all the locals come and jump off the pier to body board and surf which makes the beaches loud and crowded. Lots of bums all over near this hotel too! I've never felt unsafe or crowded at my other hotels and I've always had great service. I got sick from 2 resteraunt a that are next to the hotel. And resteraunt employees didn't understand English and got both orders wrong. Overall, location horrible unless you like coral filled beaches, bums and locals everywhere, and crossing the street to get to the beach. customer service, horrible, unless you like being ignored, lied too and shooed away. Value the worst, I spent hundres more and was completly let down by the fakeness of ratings. All 7 days were a waste!

Getaway for two

My overall experience was average. Great, helpful, and friendly staff. I did, however, encounter am inconvenience regarding parking. They wanted me to pay an additional $36 in parking on top of everything that I had already spend with them. Thank you but no thank you. This location is beyond swamped with tourist and is definitely not the place for me.
