Marriott's Ocean PointeSee map
Absolutely fabulous and somewhat tucked away, this Marriott timeshare is not for the single crowd. Amenities include daily family entertainment, super drinks and burgers at the cafe/bar and a host of activities for the kids. Very first class, you won't be disappointed.
Marriott's Ocean Pointe is located on the beaches of Palm Beach Shores and offers four swimming pools with whirlpool spas, tennis courts, health club, convenience store, and a children's playground. Each unit includes an oceanfront or oceanside view.
We were at Ocean Pointe for two weeks in February. It was our third time at this resort and we think it is just a wonderful place to vacation. Our unit was the furthest back from the ocean but we still had an amazing view of the ocean from our living room, bedroom and balcony.
Each day there are activities planned if you want to participate. The pools are great and the ocean is fantastic. We love being able to walk to the beach and sit and watch the boats go by.
The staff is the wonderful. Mike Y., Guest Service Representatve, made us feel so welcome upon check in and was so friendly and professional. Sarah S., Activities Attendant, helped us understand more about our iPad and iPhone with a smile on her face. She could not have been nicer. And Concepcion in housekeeping did a great job. I requested our unit be cleaned at a specific time that I knew we would be out and she was there just as I requested. She was delightful.
We are already planning our vacation for next year and hope to make it three weeks.
Outstanding resort although difficult to get into because many owners do not want to trade - they just want to continue to come back to their home resort. It is continually improving and has increased the offerings for young families with kids each year. Near affluent areas with great shopping and restaurants. The facility itself is well maintained by a friendly staff.
The studio's are extremely small, actually smaller than a hotel room, and the views are not that great either, unless you get oceanfront and a high floor, we have stayed here several times, but will never stay in a studio again, you do not want more than 2 people in a studio or you will be miserable. It is difficult to get a pool chair in the spring.
excellent all the way!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If you like 1970's, uncomfortable furniture, misleading descriptions (our ocean view could only see a parking lot - no water) and no real restaurant for most of our stay, then this is the place for you. Oh, and a poolside policy that pits guest against guest - showcases a team not focused on customer satisfaction. The best part of the vacation was the walk to the beach, and the non-hotel-paid crew that was awesome. A lot of owners seemed frustrated. I will give props for good service and good concierge, but I wouLd never have come here if I knew I would not have an ocean view, I needed to get in my car for breakfast or dinner for most nights, and rare available seats next to the pool require death stares between guests. Not my idea of relaxation.
The perfect family-oriented ocean resort! That is what I wrote when I rated this resort a few years ago. Nothing has changed since then. Our family goes here every year. If we didn't then the kids (and some of the adults) would drive us crazy.
Quiet area, but they do have things to do. If you're not satisfied with great beach, turquoise water, 4 pools, 3 hot tubs, 2 tiki bars with tasty food, minature golf, kids water playground,very comfortable rooms all with balconies,daily adult and kid activities, tennis, volleyball, walking distance to some restaurants, free parking, and a friendly staff. There are short drives to Palm Beach, great shopping malls, movies marinas, and a ton of restaurants.
Definitely one of the top resorts in the Marriott system. We are highly experienced 40+ year veterans of timesharing. The Marriott name guarantees a first rate experience for the discriminating owner.
It is understandable that some adolescent and adolescent-minded visitors may not enjoy this resort. This resort is NOT for singles or for the "MOUSE" crowd. We all have unique needs and time and age changes some desires.
The discriminating vacationer will research the timeshare and match his/her needs. This resort is first rate for adults. Perhaps this is not the best place for children and adolescents. Of course a car is necessary. Why would anyone holiday without an automobile? There are hundreds of great restaurants for the epicurean. There are several political entities in the greater Palm Beach area. Take some time to look at the hundreds of vacation options.
Ocean Pointe is a great home base to discover the demographics and diversity of southern Florida.
Marriott’s Ocean Pointe is a fantastic 12-month Marriott Vacation Club, and we are careful to emphasize “Marriott Vacation Club.” Marriott offers three Ocean front properties on Singer Island in northeast Palm Beach. The “greater Palm Beach area” offers nearly 50 Marriott properties varying from Courtyard to Ritz-Carlton to Marriott Resorts to three Marriott Vacation Clubs.
We are greeted by a young enthusiastic Marriott Associate, Shaaray. Shaaray is filled with sunshine on an evening with light rain.
We know that Shaaray has already greeted 60+ Marriott owners; however, Shaaray’s “mile wide smile” and temperament are greatly welcomed. Shaaray makes us feel like we are her most important guests at Marriott’s Ocean Pointe.
Shaaray will soon have a degree in hospitality, and her education shows. We predict that Shaaray shall have a great future.
Marriott’s Ocean Pointe is an extremely desirable Atlantic Ocean Front Marriott Vacation Club. If you are ready for an upscale holiday oceanfront, this is THE Place! Marriott’s Ocean Pointe is a perfect holiday retreat for families and for couples. We always take delight in seeing multi-generations using several condo units to holiday. Our advice is to reserve a two bedroom or at least a one-bedroom property. Please do not “settle” for a studio unit.
We observe that many guests of Marriott’s Ocean Pointe are either Marriott “timeshare” owners or owners of other branded timeshares. Other guests may have “booked” Marriott’s Ocean Pointe Vacation Club, and may not quite be certain of the difference between Marriott’s Ocean Pointe Vacation Club or Marriott’s Oceana Palms Vacation Club, and Palm Beach Marriott Singer Island Beach Resort & Spa. All three properties are Atlantic Ocean front, and all three use common terminology: “Condo Style Suite, 2 Bedroom Condominium, Bedroom 1: 1 King, Bedroom 2: 2 Double, Bathrooms: 2.”
Marriott Singer Island Beach Resort & Spa is similar to a Marriott Vacation club, and offers “resort hotel” amenities such as daily maid service, numerous on-property dining areas, and general “hotel” features.
We understand that an automobile is essential, and we fly into West Palm Beach, select a car rental, and holiday. We cherish the nearby Publix supermarket for morning breakfast preparation, take breakfast and coffee on our private decks, and either dine out at the many Palm Beach area restaurants or prepare lunches and dinners at our condos. All condos are equipped with washers and dryers. I might be happy to enjoy the Atlantic Ocean all week and never leave the property; however, my wife is a list maker, and she determines if we are going shopping on Worth Avenue, visiting upscale consignment shops, visiting Clematis Street and CityPlace, Antiquing, doing the Gardens Mall, visiting the zoo, museums, orchid parks, and selecting the restaurants.
As owners, we are on holiday using an Interval International Trade, and using a Breckenridge (non-Marriott Resort.)
We are greatly pleased with our fifth floor Atlantic Ocean view villa. We can view the Atlantic Ocean and beach for “miles and miles.”
We purchased Marriott’s sight unseen, at pre-construction prices thirteen years ago, and now we own seven Marriott Atlantic Ocean villas. Over the past ten years we have been selling our non-Marriott brands and buying Marriott.
We encourage Marriott to build in the Florida Keys.
Please do some research on the Palm Beach area; there is magnificent shopping, restaurants, nature centers, and a newer Publix market close by.
The best of the 4 excellent Marriott Beach Resorts we own.
We spent March 29-April 5 in a two bedroom condo with our daughter, son-in-law and grandchildren and thoroughly enjoyed it. The staff were all very kind and responsive. We loved the beach and took many long walks. Our granddaughter loved all of the activities that were scheduled all day and some in the evening. The rooms was beautiful and we had a wonderful ocean view. T.King was great to work with and wouldn't hesitate to come back. The only thing I would like is to have good restaurants a little closer.
We could not have been happier with our family Christmas week at Ocean Pointe. We, the grandparents, our 2 sons and their families which included 1 boy, 19, and 4 girls, 16, 12, 3, and 15 months all had a wonderful time. There was never a boring moment for any of us. All dealings with staff were extremely pleasant. The beds (including sofabeds), and bedding were more than comfortable. I can think of no negatives for this trip. We would do it again in a heartbeat!
I have been coming to Ocean Pointe for 10 years now, and this Is my favorite property! I proposed to my wife on this beach, and our child due on Oct 11th will swim in this beach. This property is like our second home, and feels like home when we stay!
A favorite Marriott location!! We go several weeks each year. The beach and resort have a private resort feel, not crowded. Numerous activities for adults and families with kids of all ages. This is not South Beach for the single crowd. Several buildings have recently been updated and all have fabulous Marriott comfort bedding. The kitchen is well equipped for those desiring the convenience of in unit prepping. Numerous favorite restaurants around. There is nothing not to love about this resort. We own four Marriott weeks elsewhere and are always trading into this location. Convenient access to FLL or PBI airports or for many driving from numerous locations. The number of people who return here says it all!!
As an owner of several Marriott timeshare weeks I have to say this is one I use when taking children teens, and their families. This is also good when just adults.
I use Oceana Palms when by ourself or have adult guest. My grandchildren prefer Ocean Pointe
We have stayed at Ocean Pointe several times and have enjoyed each stay. We have always found the staff very helpful and attentive. Great restraunts and activities.
This is a great resort to go to relax. The beach is just steps away, and the grounds are meticulously maintained. We didn't interact much with the resort staff, but their recommendations for local restaurants were spot on.
We had a one bedroom for the week. While I didn't like some of the furnishings, that's more a matter of personal taste. The beds were comfortable, and the views from our oceanview room were great. We will be back.
We stayed at this resort for the first time renting a timeshare. It exceptionally clean, safe and well kept resort. The staff was great, and the resort offered lots to do for all ages. It is more of a adult/family resort, not the singles scene. The area has lots to offer, great shopping and restaurants within easy driving or walking distance. There is a pizza hut and starbucks on the resort as well. We also stayed in the Hollywood Beach area, and found it much to busy for our tastes. The resort is great, you just have to know what you want out of your vacation.
Marriott Ocean Pointe is the best. For the comment about the KingFish building..get the facts. That building had to be built to code for hurricanes because it's on the SE corner of the ocean. It's only 5 stories high and has outside entrances for safety and evacuations. The other 4 buildings did not have to meet the same standards.It's true that we're on a budget..NO KIDDING! You have to. Just the reserves and insurance in Florida drive up the costs.The service is fantastic and they bend over backwards for your satisfaction.I've owned multiple weeks there for 11 years and spend 8 weeks a year at the resort in the Kingfish building.It is true though, that if you have kids you should ask for one of the other buildings as all the activities are outside of those .And for those looking for bellhops and daily maid service, this a vacation club not a hotel. You can get both though if you ask nicely.It's a wonderful location and the previous comments are off base.I would suggest that for those that find this resort not up to standard, I can only imagine what they expect.
We are Marriott owners and have stayed at 6 different Vacation Clubs. This resort is defintely not up to Marriot standards. Kingfish building was supposedly just updated. Carpet was worn and room had a smell. Room furnishings and cabinetry was very dated. grounds were just average. many things were unkept. Had to walk through parking garage to get to the pool. Nobody in kingfish building most of the time at the conciere desk. Not enough pool chairs at any of the pools. Definitely can tell the owners association at this resort are on a budget. Ocean and beach are very nice. Probably would not return.
We found this time-share resort an excellent place to stay for mature adults and will return if our schedule allows. it is spacious (unless you make the mistake of using a lock-out) and nicely equipped. The staff is professional. Its shortcomings are that they have no bell boys to help with luggage available at each of the four buildings when you arrive. More importantly, the owners have cheaped out and eliminated the cleaning and maid service. So if you like things cleaned and beds made as a daily service, you are plum out of luck. Also, don't come in during the later hours or you may not be able to find a place to park your car.
This is a top notch resort and the villas are beutiful.
Marriott International has really out done themselves . Great vacation value.
This is not the fanciest but without question is one of the best resorts in the Marriott Vacation Club with a location directly on the ocean.
We are Canadian & have been coming here for 4 years now/ twice per year (We own 4 weeks) but rent from other owners on Redweek when we want to stay longer or for extra units for family & friends traveling with us. We were here for Xmas & New-Year & then in March. The Oceanfront views are amazing, well worth the extra bucks if renting but Oceanview are nice to. The place just keeps on getting better every year. The resort is very well kept, beautiful grounds. Love the new state of the art gym, the live music by the pool, the new shaded terrace where we can just sit & relax... Gas BBQ are set up for your convenience. Abundance of family activities for all ages. Market place as also been expanded. Costco is about 10 minutes away. Must try NOCHE restaurant special 50% off every thing on the menu even the wine every day from 5-7 pm (reservation required)! Go see the gorgeous sun sets at the marina (5min walk), you can also dine there. The best part of this resort is the beach; not to crowded & it's nice to view the passing ships. Large pools surround the premises, valley ball, chess, tennis, the children's playground as been gated & decorated & the little ones love it. Free parking as opposed to the Marriott's Beachplace where you have to pay a daily fee. The only tiny complaint we have is in regards to do the terrible decor in the lobby (in our opinion), just hate the flower wall paper; specially the colors. But don't worry about that because before you know it you'll be staring at a crystal blue color which will take your breath away....!!
I have been here five times in eight years. The resort is funfor kids, nice beach, good pools. The rooms have been excellent to below average, depending on which building you're in that year and where they are in renovations. They need a second marketplace and a restaurant would do well.
We just returned from a week at Marriott's Ocean Pointe Resort (my husband, myself and 4 daughters (16-9). The resort is beatiful and very well maintained. We had a roomy 2 bedroom villa with a great view of the ocean from the 6th floor. The resort is laid out so many of the villas have ocean views. We rented directly from an owner and I felt it was a great buy (even with 3 days of rain!) Now let me start by saying our vacation was somewhat dappened by tropical storm Faye. But the days that were nice were spectacular. The poolside had the feel of being at a caribbean resort. The ocean water was crystal blue with perfect waves. We managed to find a couple of restaurants close by...good takeout from Portifino's, Duffy''s was alot of fun for the kids and had desent pub food. I would definetley rent through redweek again and would also return to this resort
We are 9 year owners of a unit at Ocean Pointe. We, too, were there this past March when the shark watch was in effect. To clarify for other people looking into this resort - that is the first time that has happened in all the years we have stayed there. The authorities notified us the following day that is was sharks migrating south from cooler waters. Because of an unusually cool spring, they were late in moving. They were gone as soon as people realized they were there. It was never a threat because the resort kept the guests updated constantly. We swim in the ocean every year with hundreds of other guests on the beach and have never had any problems.
As far as not having much to do on the island, I have to disagree with that. If you are in to malls, etc. then that is true. But water sports galore abound on the beaches; jet skis, parasailing, fishing, sailing, and wave boarding (all set up at Ocean Pointe). There are two wonderful restaurants on the island which you can walk to with a beautiful boardwalk and shop. You can also rent bikes or scooters to tour the island with. And there is a state park on the island where you are able to rent canoes or kayaks and spend an afternoon in the bay. We never get bored on Singer Island even after 10 years. I just didn't want people to get the wrong impression.
As owners we spent a lovely week in early March. The villas and resort itself are great. You will need a car as there is nothing much on the island. The beach is OK, no Fort Lauderdale as it is not groomed as often. In 2007 there was a sea lice warning, and this year a serious shark warning. The ocean is nice to look at, but for safety sake swim in the beautiful pools.
Sorry I am a little late with my rating. We stay at Marriott's Ocean Pointe in January of 2008. I would have given it 5 stars but I felt that the front desk staff could have been a little more helpful with directions and hints on places to eat. We traded our Marriott Ocean Watch at Myrtle Beach, SC for this resort. As always Marriott properties are very nice. The unit we had was a two bedroom and having another couple with us we had plenty of space. The beach and the pools are very, very nice. We enjoyed just sitting around the pool listening to the music. We would trade into this resort again, if possible. bettym16
One of Marriott's premier resorts at a perfect location. Magnificent views both Oceanside and Oceanfront. Beautiful tropical grounds with inviting pools, live music, swings, market, poolside bars and great area restaurants. Yes, you do need a car but you don't really have to drive anywhere if you just want to enjoy the resort amenities. We exchanged into this last year and readily decided to purchase a platinum Oceanside unit this year. Perfect hideaway from the cold northern and mid-western winters. Hope to use it as well as exchange it for many years
I wanted so bad to give this resort a 5 star rating, but dropped to 4 based on a few observations. The units are beautiful. Spacious, clean, and well decorated. However, I thought housekeeping could have done a better job with the common hallways. Saw papers and littering in the hallways that went untouched for days. Also had problems with fire alarms going off and very poor cable TV reception (could not fix).
Otherwise, one of the nicest vacations we have taken in a Marriott resort. Great staff. Beautiful beaches. Wonderful pools and whirlpools. Loved the massages. Best Angus Burger at the pool bar. Loved the Marketplace and fast food service by the pool. Convieniant parking. Lots of chairs and lounges around the pool. Decent activities. Great views from any unit. Just soak up that Florida sunshine.
The location is a bit remote, but with a car, no problem. Must recommend the Sunshine Gambling Cruise as well as the catamaran cruise that visits the West Palm Beach homes for the rich. You have to do this one.
A very unique place to vacation with enough things to do that you feel you really "got away" from it all. Thanks Ocean Point.
This is a great family destination for any age children! We have been four years in a row and this is truly a 5 star resort. The staff go out of their way to make your visit a great one. The grounds are some of the most beautiful on the east coast! Our family will visit time and time again!!
Stayed in the Kingfish building, it was nice and quit a little far from the other three buildings, this had its pros and its cons. I liked the fact that the pool, beach and gym were never really crowded but it did make it inconvenient if you needed anything from the market place. The staff was wonderful, very helpful, and polite. The beach was absolutely beautiful the water was perfect I liked it much more than the pools that felt more like Jacuzzis than pools, not very refreshing. Of course this was summer and from what I hear all pools in Florida are this way this time of year. Our two bedroom villa was very comfortable and spacious with all the amenities. Over all I was very pleased with the resort and would definitely go back, just not during the summer the weather in Florida in July is terrible, no wonder all the rich people leave for the summer.
Nice pools and gounds. The hallways and rooms left a lot to be desired in the cleaning department. Went out of our room every day to find the same dirt and waste on the carpet. The staff was good and the aerobics fun. Far from restaurants and town. Definitely need a car unlike Beachplace where you can just walk, take a bus or the water taxi.
Absolutely fabulous and somewhat secreted away, this Marriott timeshare is not for the single crowd. Daily family entertainment, super drinks and burgers at the cafe/bar and a host of activities for the kiddoes. Good eating in nearby-drive places.
Looking for "the Mouse and rides" go somewhere else, but luxury and fun abounds for young families with wheels. Lots of places to go to and things to do. Just north of Palm Beach on an ocean peninsula...quiet and luxurious.
Near P. B, Juno and Jupiter...all kinds of outlet shopping. Can't believe I needed to buy so much--I had to ship stuff home..
More pools than you'll need for privacy and then there's the beach and all the activities there. Parasailing, waterskiing and para- skiing, fishing and girl watching (yes there are girls there!!!) Totally cool, but not just for singles. Need to stay longer next time so I bought another timeslot.
Great Family Resort, accomodations are fantastic. Can walk or take a water taxi to everything. Would highly recommend staying here.
This is a beautiful resort even by Marriott standards. The rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated and the staff is very friendly. We stayed in March 2006 and did not encounter any problems and found the place to be very clean. All buildings are now refurbished. This is a very special area of the Florida coast due to the warm gulf stream waters. Great for swimming, snorkeling, and diving. The water is turquoise blue and the beach beautiful white sand. You can walk for miles and miles down the the beach as about 2 miles down is an incredible state beachfront park and sanctuary.
We love this resort. We went for the first time 4 years ago, bought 2 weeks, have gone back 5 times. Top notch resort. Lots to do, great customer service.
We love going here, and bought additional weeks. The beach is not crowded and is a close walk. The ocean views are great! We stayed at Pompano and Kingfish buildings, and have not had problems. Great family resort!
service mediocre, rooms mediocre. had to switch rooms twice when we arrived. counters in two kitchens had food crumbs left on them obviously not wiped down and ants crawling along the base boards. decore is definately dated and our first room in the Cobia building had a musty smell, carpet was filthy. not the quality you would expect from marriott. Finally ended up in the Sailfish building which has been slightly updated. Several other couples we talked to while there had similar issues. If you can get a good rate on the rental it may be worth renting as long as you realize before hand that this is not a five star resort. 3 at best.
We visited last February and loved it so much we bought two weeks. This is not a place for young people looking for a wild time. It is perfect for mature ( I don't mean old ) people who enjoy peace, quiet, and the nicer things in life.
This is truly a wonderful resort. Top notch all the way. Its in a very quiet area. They have 3 pools. The rooms are roomy with a lot of space. We went there with our 3 children. The kids program was great. Our children made friends the first day and were exchanging emails with other children on the last day. They have a meeting on monday morning that tells you of all the area activities which is great and informative. We went jet skiing which the older kids loved. A FEW THINGS ON THE DOWN SIDE. The pillows on the beds were very small. I would of perfered on big king size pillow then using 5 of these small pillows. The pizza hut by the pool is slooow. The baby pool is in the direct sun with no shade and because it is so small is way too hot for the little ones. But other than that it was great. Hope you pick this resort you will be very happy.
The drop off from the beach to the actual ocean is over your head. What little beach is there is hogged by the "for rent" umbrellas and chairs. Rusted wreckage and sand dredgeing equipment also is an eyesore. They count being but on the bay as "ocean front" -- so be careful when you agree to rent ocean front from them -- you will find your self with a good walk to the rest of the resort, the pools, and the beach. Twice while we were there our room was left with the door standing open by the towel service! Yikes! Compared to other Marriott's I have stayed at, this is definitely "less than."
First rate. Has become our favorite place. We have returned the last 3 years. Perfect place for family activities.
Stayed here 4 days February 2005 and ended up buying Platinum timeshare. Looking forward to vacationing here for many years to come!! Kids had a great time hanging out, swimming, playing games. Food choices are great. Tennis accross the street. Great pools, whirlpools and health club! Beautiful beach. Great outdoor bar. Ice cream sundaes each day at 4pm. Perfect for our family. The rooms are spacious, especially the Master sides. But the lockout studio we had was also comfortable and spacious. Kids had their breakfast on the balcony. The whole area is spread out perfectly so it never seemed to be too crowded (even in peak season).
We had rented car so we could take in some of the fine area restauranats and other sights.
Only thing it needs is a small basketball court (maybe next to the tennis court?)
I recently stayed at the Ocean Pointe Resort and found it to an outstanding resort as advertised. Ocean Pointe offers so many things for everyone. There's golf, scuba, beach, pools, a workout center, shopping, excellent restaurants, and plenty more all fairly close.
The resort itself is first class! We enjoyed our stay very much.
I stayed there with my sister on a sales promotion. I did not find the staff very helpful, except for one person, and everything worth seeing is definitely a $20 cab ride away. DEFINITELY rent a car. This is not like South Beach. This resort definitely caters to older couples or people with children. Not a place to stay if you are single in your 30s. We thought it was too far from any action. Great gym though. Wouldn't go back.
Great Place for the whole family. Fabulous location and property. Pools are wonderful as is beach access. Staff are friendly and concieres are helpful in locating great places to eat. Must experience to appreciate.
spacious rooms food was good some activities Safari close by .....we went around twice Plam Beach also.......only knock is that the the kid's activity center is limited.....no basketball court/ limited pool/ping pong tables......
stayed in june of '04 and had a great time.
Definitely one of the top resorts in the Marriott system. We've stayed there several times, including a sales promotion. We swore we weren't going to buy a time share. Promised each other we would just say "NO NO NO" at the presentation (which was on a Monday). By the second day there (Saturday) we were ready to sign on the dotted line! This place totally sells itself. Great rooms, awesome views, 3 excellent pools plus a kiddie pool. Two palm-tree canopied hot tubs, spectacular beach. Awesome staff as well. Also, they had a lot of great activities for kids. People don't tend to think of Palm Beach as a family friendly area (when compared with Orlando at least), but Ocean Pointe always has lots of fun activities to keep the kids entertained. (And a nice poolside bar for the adults.)
Ocean Pointe has much less t/s competition in the Palm Beach area than resorts in Orlando do, so these units have great exchange power and really hold their value (just look at the secondary market prices). We've exchanged our silver season unit here for platinum season at Marriotts elsewhere with no problem at all.
We're going back for our third trip in '05. Can't wait!
I have stayed at this resort three times, and every time I stay, I enjoy myself even more. The hotels has three very large pools, and two hot tubs, with a sauna. Its only a few steps from the pool to the beach, beach is clean and very scenic, with warm water temperatures year-round. The rooms are quite large and furnished nicely. There is also a convienence strore a bar. The resort also features a game room, with "kids night out", or day long camp services. I would recommend this resort to anyone who is visiting the Palm beach area, and RedWeek.com is agreat way to book at a low price without actually having to purchase a timeshare.
My wife, 2 kids and I spent Christmas week here in 2003. We really liked it. The toughest choice at the beginning of each day was whether to read a book by the pool or beach. Beautiful landscaping and easy-going staff. This was a resort that was difficult to depart. We would definitely go back!
We stayed here for a great week in September. The staff is delightful and the amenities just great. We loved it and look forward to returning next year. The views are just beautiful.
First-class accomodations. Excellent pool areas. Great beach, with waves often suitable for surfing or body surfing, especially fall- spring. Excellent restaurants in area. Check with staff to find restaurants and other attractions; they are very accomodating. Palm Beach area has lots to see and do.
I Stayed here from May2-May9. This is a first rate resort. the beach is beautiful as well as the structure and amenities. ike all Marriotts it is a comfortable beautiful place to vacation.
The only negative were the aerobic / activiteis people need to put more personality into there classes etc. they are very bland basically no fun.
Beautiful property. Certainly lives up to the excellence of Marriott resorts.
Total relaxation in a beautiful, ocean front, Florida resort. The villas are luxurious and very well kept. The staff go out of their way to make you feel welcome. The neighborhood is great. Lots to do in the area. You'll love it!
Pick one- two -three bedrooms, or a studio for the week. This is a beautiful T/S in a pretty quiet area, that is showing much re-development. On the original Coloniade Resort (sp?), the beach is still in the beautiful tropical blue colors and temperatures thanks to the gulf stream currents.
Worth a check is the Flagler & Breakers tours in 'real' Palm Beach. (Breakers was only on Wed- call to check).
Nice resort right on the water, with 3 pools. It's a 10 minute drive to decent shopping and restaurants, but if you want to fill your fridge and enjoy a relaxing holiday in the sun this is the place. Beautiful.
The resort was beautiful and a lot of fun even during the off season, but the restaurants in the area rather pricey.
