Loved Marriot's Attentive Staff
Everything was awesome, we especially enjoyed the special care we received from Danny---the on-site driver that took us around to get to all our activities on time.

Fine for a short stay
The room was decent and the bed was comfortable. Our bathroom was small with very little space for your toiletries. Housekeeping was not thorough and arrived very late in the day.

Pricey and tiny
For $300/ night I stayed in a very small room with a tiny fridge and no cooktop, plus a microwave. Other one bedrooms that I saw had the full array of regular sized appliances and a separate bedroom. Tiny balcony. Golf was very good.

Clean, comfortable and quiet - Highly recommended!
This was our first time at any of the Marriott Vacation Resorts, and we were pleasantly surprised with the room, the facilities and the grounds. Our room was comfortable, very clean and most importantly, quiet! Access to highway and amenities is very good, and we did not hear any road noise whatsoever. We had a small room with a kitchenette, and it served our purposes well. Little touches like having dish soap, small packets of laundry detergent, a new sponge and proper dishes, cutlery etc. made the stay easy-breezy. Beds were super comfortable and the linens were impeccable. We are fussy about cleanliness, and with the nasty flu season decided to do a quick pass with sanitizing cloths on door handles, phone, light switches etc - all the nasty spots. Can I tell you, there was no trace of dirt on those cloths? I could see this being a great spot to come back for a family visit. Lots of places to walk, pools are beautiful with 'something for everyone'. Simply lovely. We were in the area for a week long athletic competition, and the quiet, clean and comfortable accommodations made a big difference in our ability to rest and recover at the end of each day. Highly recommend!!

We had a very nice stay. Even though there was a small water leak in the ceiling bathroom, it was handled very efficiently. The engineer and his crew were prompt and fixed it while we were at dinner. No muss, no fuss!
