Marco Beach Ocean Resort

Marco Island, Naples and Marco Island

The hotel

Surrounded by the breathtaking backdrop of the Gulf of Mexico, the Marco Beach Ocean Resort offers a sublime retreat from everyday life. The hotel is located on a sugar soft beach with its azure waters offering an incredible variety of aquatic pursuits including snorkelling, windsurfing and sailing. All suites are luxuriously appointed, featuring fully-equipped kitchens, a balcony with views of the ocean or garden terraces. For the health conscious, there’s a fully-equipped fitness centre on the 4th floor or head up to the 5th floor to splash about in the rooftop pool. As you’re on holiday, you’ve every excuse to pamper yourself, so a trip to the hotel’s spa is a must. An impressive palette of treatments will soothe weary muscles and banish stress, leaving you feeling utterly relaxed. The concierge will be happy to arrange golf, tennis and charter sailing if you wish, all conveniently close by. If you’re a foodie, you’re in luck. Sale e Pepe is an award-winning restaurant specialising in fine dining Italian cuisine. The chef and his team create from scratch everyday a Piemontese-orientated menu (northern Italian with French influences) rounded out by signature dishes from many of Italy’s distinctive regions. Within Sale e Pepe is The Saletta, a more casual eatery with cafe-style seating. There’s also The Terrace with all-day alfresco dining and picture postcard views. After dinner, retire to Toulouse, an intimate and sophisticated lounge that pays homage to the Belle-Epoque era of Paris and the great artist, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec.

We wanted to stay at the JW Marriott next door but boy are we glad they were booked! This hotel/resort was simply fantastic and the service was impeccable, from Klaudia and Boris at the bars to Gary and company on the beach and the friendly, helpful staff at the lobby and entrance. The room also exceeded our expectations and the housekeeping was perfect and non-evasive. The restaurant here, although pricey, is worth at least one of your dinners while staying. The beach is lovely. It can get crowded but you can ask for chairs a little more secluded and they will accommodate. I just can’t say enough about how unexpectedly pleased we were. If in the area, we would not hesitate to come back or recommend to friends. Read less

The resort was an exceptional value in quality and service. We were entertaining my wife's cousin from Italy. She never been to Marco Island and is only the second time in the United States. She summed up the experience as "I do not want to go home".

The hotel itself is beautiful and the staff are accommodating. Our complaint is with the way the beach chairs are managed. When you pay $500+ per night for a beach front hotel you expect to be able to watch your children in the surf from your beach chair. Each morning we arrived at the beach at 9am on the dot.

The hotel itself is beautiful and the staff are accommodating. Our complaint is with the way the beach chairs are managed. When you pay $500+ per night for a beach front hotel you expect to be able to watch your children in the surf from your beach chair. Each morning we arrived at the beach at 9am on the dot. The signs at the hotel beach state the chairs are available starting at 9am. Well each day the ENTIRE front row was taken by the time we arrived. When we inquired about how the 30 chairs were already reserved (note only 2 of the 30 chairs had people sitting in them, the other 28 just had towels on them) the staff could not provide an explanation. So here I stand watching the kids play in the surf when all the chairs directly behind me sit empty, but with a towel reserving them. The hotel could manage the process better. Read less
