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.

Loved the included beach service and took advantage of the cabanas during the windy days. The daily small Complimentary fruity cocktail was a nice treat too. Nice size… Read more

I just returned from a four night stay at the Marco Beach Ocean Resort. I arrived just before midnight and was immediately greeted by name, checked in and bags brought to my room. Every staff member that I encountered during my stay were upbeat, friendly and professional. I stayed in a one bedroom suite with a full ocean view on the 10th floor. Room had everything one could need and was very clean. I spent each day at the beach where you are escorted to a lounge chair and umbrella, your towel laid out for you and full service available from the the beach bar restaurant right to your chair. Each day at 3pm they have complimentary smoothies served. It was the perfect break from reality. Read less

As it was Christmas day, we headed out about 5pm and asked at reception to ensure the sofa bed was made up for our return. Arrived back approx 10pm, no sofa bed made. Called reception, they sent somebody to make it up but like the previous reviewer didnt use a sheet underneath the blanket. All was well until 5thday when we had no maid service in the morning, so sofabed was left out all day. We went out in the evening & came back to the sofabed put away, so again another call to reception 30mins later another call to reception & eventually sorted by an unhappy maid. Other than this we had a great stay, used the pool & beach. The kitchenette in the room was a godsend as the cost of eating out every meal was expensive (which we knew) Read less
