Enjoyed a few days here in February before going to our time share. Service was great and room was perfect! Peter, a waiter at the bar was wonderful and so was Jean, a waiter at L.G. Smith's. We're planning on going back next February.More
It was an okay stay
We stayed at the resort this past week in an Ocean, King, Marina Facing room. Overall the hotel is nice, clean and love that it was an adult only location. We got to the resort around 2, but our room wasnât ready, so we sat and ate some lunch at the bar until 3:30 when we were able to get in. Things we enjoyed: The private island is beautiful; boat runs every 15 minutes downstairs in the lobby to take you there. We also purchased a spa package to receive massages at Spa Cove on the private island, it was amazing! Really enjoyed Flamingo Beach as well. Hotel is clean, room service was there every day before noon to freshen up the room. Valet guys are very friendly and there were always taxis right there to take you where you needed to go. Poolside bar has a great staff, very friendly and good food and drinks. Things I did not like about the hotel: The bed was so extremely uncomfortable on both sides, you literally sank into the bed. We tossed and turned all night long. Didnât like that there was no real balcony so sit on and enjoy the views. All you get is a tiny area you can step outside your room. The breakfast buffet/restaurant Aquarius â TERRIBLE!! We purchased the breakfast buffet package for our stay and I regret it. The buffet opens at 7 am, we got downstairs 7:15 and all the breakfast was already ice cold, not to mention tasted like garbage with a very small selection to choose from. In December we stayed at the Aruba Marriott Stellarias and Casino and they had an amazing breakfast buffet at LaVista with a great selection and hot fresh foods. This resort has all these high end stores and then a restaurant inside which serves food as terrible as a school cafeteria. The elevator felt like it was 100 degrees every time you stepped into it, even worse when itâs full. Didnât like that hotel is not on the beach, kind of inconvenient to have to wait for a boat to take you to the island, I would much rather be able to walk right out onto the beach. There is no store or mini market inside the hotel or close by for emergency items, like medications, quick snacks etc. My husband had to take a cab at 7 am around the island to find a supermarket open to sell medicine. All in all, it was a nice stay, but I wouldnât stay here again. I would much rather go back to the other Marriott property at the Stellaris Casino. They have so much more to offer. If you stay here, venture out and eat at the local restaurants.More
Wonderful vacation spot on the beach
We stayed at this hotel during the week of March 11th, 2017 and the room was spacious enough for four adults (separate bedroom and a pull-out sofa in the living room area). Our room on the fourth floor had a great view of the pools, the lagoon, and the beach. When I booked the hotel, I was not aware that there are many folks there on timeshare weeks (floors 1, 3 & 5). The staff was friendly and helpful. We spent alot of time in and around the pool area each day. Perfect way to relax.More
10 days of bliss
Stayed here for 10 days. Overall great experience. Stayed in an ocean view suite. Great view of ocean and pool area. Navigator forgot to reserve our on beach dinner. Nothing was done to remedy their mistake. As a platinum elite member i expected more. Would have given 5 stars if management had responded to this issue. During the week I received multiple letters about upcoming events, but no apology. Would come back again.More
The hotel is right on the waterfront in the capital a mere 15mins or less from the airport. The staff was warm and helpful and the room was cozy. Even without being on a beach the own private island (with at least 4 spectacular white sand beaches) makes up of that, as the have flamingos and iguanas that allows you take breath-taking pictures for album. This is a must visit hotel.More
