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.

Vacationed here many times over 17 years. This was a typical experience for a beach hotel. Room service 2x/day was great; however the carpeting in gulf view room needed a good shampooing. The beach attendants need supervision as they hold beach chair for guests even though guests only arrive to beach in late morning/early afternoon. This causes some strife with guests and should be stopped. First come first choice should be the RULE. Most employees were professional and courteous except for beach personnel Read less

We have stayed here a few times over the past several years, and we have never been disappointed! The location is superb and the hotel staff is very professional and friendly. On two separate occasions, the management sent us a bottle of champagne to celebrate a special event! The beach area with umbrellas and chairs is run very efficiently, and the food at the beach bar and the pool bar is excellent. We especially loved Laurie, the pool bartender! She was so pleasant and paid attention to all the guests. As a local, she also has great knowledge of restaurants and things to do on Marco Island. The bedding is very comfortable and the housekeeping staff is very thorough in the daily room cleaning service. The only suggestions for improvement would be to have better/brighter lighting in the bathroom. Also, for a resort of this size and caliber, it is a little surprising that there is no indoor cocktail bar. Those two items aside, we will certainly not hesitate to return here and recommend this hotel to others too! Read less

Had a wonderful experience, the staff was polite and very accommodating. We stayed in a 2 bedroom suite, the rooms as well as the common areas were clean.

Had a wonderful experience, the staff was polite and very accommodating. We stayed in a 2 bedroom suite, the rooms as well as the common areas were clean. The only complaint is that none of the doors have an automatic open button for those who are handicapped making it difficult to maneuver a person in a wheelchair. The outdoor bathroom has 2 doors none of which opened automatically and required the assistance of a 3rd person in order to access the restroom. The food from the outdoor grill was good. Overall, the stay was absolutely wonderful and we had a great experience. Read less

I stayed at the Marco Beach Ocean Resort for 10 days. The hotel was elegant, exquisitely decorated, the food was delicious in the various restaurants on the premises. What impressed me the most though, was the impeccable customer service. From the beginning to the end of my trip, the staff members in every area of the hotel were courteous, professional, approachable, conscientious and made me feel at home. I would like to specially mention: - the kind Gentlemen at the beach who graciously found me a lounge chair even on the hottest, busiest days, - the personable Gentlemen at the door who always had a genuine smile on their faces and enquired about me with such sincerity, - Nathan at the poolside bar, who went out of his way to make sure I was taken care of, - Patricia in housekeeping, who was such a beautiful soul, ensuring that my room was fresh daily and that I was truly enjoying my stay, - Liliana at the Concierge desk who took great care of me on my last day making sure I was on time for my flight, - Sidney at Reception who cared so deeply about the customers she was serving and gave 110%, - Stella, at the Spa Reception who doted on me and made sure I had such a beautiful experience, - Tatiana, who gave me the most relaxing massage which I highly recommend, - Neveshar, Francesca and Sonja at the Sal n Pepe Restaurant who made my fine dining experience so amazing. I felt truly pampered and taken care of. It was so hard to leave but I can't wait to return! Read less
