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.

Excellent customer service. I love that the beach chairs and umbrellas are included in room rate, and we could easily get four loungers with two umbrellas for both parents and kids. Comfortable beds and nice big suites.

This was our first time staying at the Marco Beach Ocean Resort. We’ve been regular Marco Island visitors for over 25 years and have usually stayed at the Hilton. This resort offers an upscale alternative with ocean front views, comfortable, updated suites, free beach chairs and umbrellas, without the usual hustle and bustle of the other major hotels on the island. The staff is very friendly, accommodating and informative. Easy short walk to restaurants and the Marco Movies theater. Highly recommend this resort. Enjoy! Read less

I chose this hotel because you get a suite. You have a small kitchen, living room, and bedroom, which is so nice for families. We had a gulf and garden view and it was very nice, the view from the balcony was great. The beach is beautiful.

I chose this hotel because you get a suite. You have a small kitchen, living room, and bedroom, which is so nice for families. We had a gulf and garden view and it was very nice, the view from the balcony was great. The beach is beautiful. There is an area of the beach that is covered in shells though and it can be hard to walk on. The beach chairs, umbrellas, and towels are complimentary which is awesome. The drinks are expensive and we found service to be hit or miss. There are some great staff and some that seem less interested in helping you. The housekeeping staff came 1-2 times a day and we always had clean towels. The turtle turndown was a nice touch. There were 2 instances where I felt service could have been improved. We arrived 1 1/2 hours before check in. They do let you change and go to the beach or pool to wait. However we just wanted to sit and get drink/food while we waited. The man at the front desk showed me a map of the facility but then wouldn’t let me have it. So we wondered around aimlessly for a bit trying to figure out where we could go. He also said he would call me as soon as the room was ready. We found the beach grill, it’s outside so it’s not air conditioned. I was sitting in the heat a bit nauseous. At 4 I went back to the front desk to see if our room was ready and then he called up to check on the room, which was ready. It just gave me the impression that he didn’t check on it before. Then I had asked the front desk a few times if I could borrow an umbrella and they never had any available. I ended up buying my own umbrellas down there. For the price you pay to stay there they could offer to call a taxi or find ways to assist their guests. However they did not offer any further suggestions/assistance to me. Read less
