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.

This resort is perfect for a quick get away. You have the beautiful beach as well as walking distance to some great restaurants. The staff was awesome and always super friendly. Our favorite bartender was Mr. D. He was always happy and always made sure you had the perfect cocktail. I absolutely recommend this resort for your stay on Marco Island

The restaurant has a great variety of dishes and the staff is helpful when deciding what to eat or drink. The room we stayed in was nicely furnished, modern style, and we had a decent view as well. Bathroom was spacious and had his and her sinks, which was a plus. I forgot to request a late checkout, that’s my fault, but we were interrupted twice, at 8am and then at 10am. I’m aware of the checkout times and policy but the 8am checkout reminder was just a tad too early. Nonetheless, this is a great place and I’ll definitely be back, and I’ll remember to ask for a late checkout next time. Read less

What an amazing experience our family had at Marco Beach Ocean Resort. We arrived April 20th and checked out April 25th. This was our first time in Marco Island, FL and when researching where to stay I was convinced Marco Resort was right for us. We prefer to stay in suites with kitchens because our daughter has a very severe dairy allergy, so we like to prepare some meals in the room, especially breakfast. We stayed in the 2 bedroom suite because they offer a full kitchen (1 bedroom suites do not have a full size fridge) and 2 full bathrooms (which come in handy for a family of 4.) The room and full gulf view were spectacular! Everyone we came in contact with from the front desk, valet, housekeeping and servers at Beachside grill went above and beyond to make our stay that much more enjoyable. They take food allergies seriously and very very attentive to our needs. I would like to especially name Mariana at the front desk who was so friendly, helpful and truly made us feel like valued guests. Jovie served us twice for breakfast at Sale and Pepe and was spectacular as well. The chocolates left from housekeeping and smoothies on the beach every day was a nice touch and very appreciated. We hope to make visiting Marco Beach Ocean Resort a yearly tradition! Read less

This was my first time staying at the Marco Beach Ocean Resort. We found the location to be perfect for what we were looking for. Easy access to the beautiful beach with attentive and friendly cabana staff who could bring you anything on the menu you desired. Also close to the other shopping and restaurants and it was an easy walk to enjoy other options nearby. Our suite was lovely with a full kitchen and good size balcony overlooking the beach. The staff were attentive and helpful throughout our one week stay from the warm welcome at the front door to the friendly staff at the pool bar. Our only complaint was that the pool area was quite small and it was difficult to get a chair in the afternoon. However, the weather was great so we spent much of our time at the beach anyway. Really enjoyed our stay here. Read less

Back in the UK 🇬🇧 after an amazing trip to Florida to celebrate my 50th birthday. As part of this stayed at this beautiful hotel for 4 nights. Wish it had been longer as both the hotel and Marco island are gorgeous. Can’t say enough about how fab this hotel is from the huge suite with amazing views of the beach to the lovely staff on front desk. The room was made up so nice every day. Being from the UK not used to valet parking loved all the guys always had a bit banter with them. Thanks so much for bottle of bubbly and note for my birthday lovely touch. The only negative point was the amount of children in the hot tub at the pool. A lot of the time you couldn’t get in for them when the notice states under 12s must be supervised by adults. No parents to be seen and no one enforcing this. We were out most of the time so wasn’t a major issue. Got to be the best beach I have ever seen and a lot of the time it was almost empty. Beautiful sunsets every night. Have travelled all over the world but this is definitely one of the best hotels I’ve stayed in. Keep up the good work. Read less
