Never been to a resort that made you feel special. Every staff member would stop to chat with you. Location is close enough to the attractions but far enough away from all the noise and traffic.

I was disappointed in the hotel's adherence to their stated policies regarding COVID 19. Although they have lots of signage stating everyone must wear a mask in public areas of hotels and a staff member stands in the lobby all the time, they do not enforce the mask rule at all. Every time I walked through the lobby or used the elevators there were multiple people not wearing masks. One evening there were about 10 people sitting on the couches/chairs inside the lobby all without masks while a staff person stood right next to them. There were numerous instances where people were on elevators not wearing masks. I did not get into the elevator with one unmasked party and they called me a bitch. Wow. Never once saw the elevators being cleaned and they were in constant use. Our room was clean. It was nice to have a separate seating area and the balcony overlooking the bay. The walls are very thin. I could hear people talking in both adjoining rooms and evertime someone flushed a toilet I heard that too. Plenty of parking although the parking lot does flood in some sections furthest away from the hotel. The pool was pretty and I liked that they had cabanas available and a poolside bar and snack bar. The snack bar does serve Starbucks coffee but it's not a full Starbucks - only coffee, espresso and lattes are served. Tried to buy snacks/drinks there a few times but it's only staff with 1 person and the wait times were too long. I wish I had known there wasn't a beach at this hotel. There is a free trolley you can take to the beach but I didn't want to do that with COVID situation so we ended up driving ourselves about 5 minutes up the street. Read less

Hot tub was out of order however very busy pool area. Family oriented and parking is great. My unit 601 did not cool the sleeping area. The cheeseboard is not worth ordering. Overall it was just okay, we expected more from a Marriot chain.
