Went to Orlando for Vacation for 3 days. This resort was recommended to me by close friends who been there BEFORE the pandemic. The price was right, and other members' photos looked amazing, so i booked 2 nights right away. When i got there around 8 pm , only 2 valet guys, 1 luggage helper guy, and 1 front desk attendant. EMPTY property no employees except for the 4 employees i mentioned. i checked in no problems. Going upstairs to my room, beautiful clean room, beautiful bathroom. I had pool view, so the view of property was beautiful. See some of the photos i took. BIG PROBLEM for me is i like the temperature inside the room to be around ~ 67. Never had a problem with ACs not even in DoubleTree. The AC here you set it to 65, and it barely feels like 72 or so. I asked the front desk guy to send technician over, he said it will not be possible till the next day some point. So i asked to be moved to another room, and he obliged no problems. luggage helper wasnt around so i had to move all my stuff all the way down the hallway same floor by myself. New room AC was still weak, but better than the original room so it was a better situation. What resort cant support proper AC temperatures UNLESS Marriott is saving costs again at our expense in the rooms! Walking around the resort, its HUGE! 1st thing i notice is everything is closed, the starbucks, the restaurants, everything closed. Only open place is a deli type place on 1st floor with some pre-made sandwichs, chips, candy protein bars,...etc. The resort is huge, no employees almost anywhere except the front desk. If you're planning on self-park, its quite an adventure to walk from the hotel in hallways through the other tower of the hotel (which is closed) all the way through the convention center into the parking lot. There will not be a soul to ask directions in these vast hallways, and no signs to direct you if needed. VERY eerie feeling indeed, and could be a MAJOR safety concern if something would happen through these hallways like drunk fight or any harassments, there will be NOBODY to stop it or intervene. insane. The resort has 3 or 4 wings total, and only 1 wing is open. Gym has restricted hours , closes @ 6 pm. Marriott simply cutting costs, probably sending the employees home early after 6 pm after they close out the gym and other amenities. No room service - Policy enforced by Marriot ?!?! claiming its a pandemic policy. Unless you plead with the front desk & explicitly ask for your room to be cleaned. Just another way for Marriott to save money at the expense of the Customer experience taking away from the essence of the Vacation feeling. Pool is AMAZING, i mean large, grand & amazing. Pool service is great will bring you drinks, food, whatever you need while you lounge in the sun & enjoy the pool. General feel is the Resort is deserted and unkept except for the pool area. Dont even try calling the front desk from your room, they NEVER answer no matter how many time you call at EVERY hour of the day. NEVER seen this type of ignorance before not even in Motel 6. Overall a good experience, but Marriott needs to keep things running at full scale and not cut down the hours on gym & ammenities, and no room service & close down restaurants. remember, the customers who come to this resort paid good money & no reason to cut me a diminished experience. But if need be for cost cutting, MENTION that upfront on your website & have your employees NOT lie about the details when asked on the phone. Yes, your employees did lie to me when i called up the night before i showed up claiming all is open & all is good without any down-scaling. LIE. Read less

I must from the time we arrived t'ill when we check out...the quality of customer service and care was AMAZING. I would like to acknowledge Angelix and Kenny for making us feel like family. Thank you Angelix and Kenny....you guys are GREAT !!! This is a wonderful property, very clean rooms, the pool is to die for...3 different waterslides ( I felt like I was 7 again). We felt safe, comfortable, valued, welcome, and relax...what more can you ask for ? I almost forgot, there's a nightly light shows at the pool every night.... great 12 minutes show, its worth watching. My family and I had a great time and we are counting the days to go back again. p.s Make sure you get a room facing the pool! Read less

Most restaurants & bars within resort are closed. I confirmed my Bonvoy member number with the front desk upon check in but still they refuse to validate my stay for my Marriott rewards points. I will never stay here again in the past we have stayed here many times but it has gone down hill now I do not recommend this marriot hotel. Read less

My wife and myself just returned from staying two nights at the hotel. The hotel is beautiful, rooms are great, prices are a little high. We stayed on the 28 floor and did not see anyone else on our floor. Restaurants were closed and the cafe downstairs opened at 7am. Unfortunately we had an early tee time so we skipped that the first day. We did drive 5 minutes down the street to a great seafood restaurant where we ate one night and a steakhouse right next to it for the second night. Both were fantastic. 7-11 down the street for a good coffee and fresh donut at reasonable price. The hotel which is huge had just the main part open and it was very quiet. Not many guests for a large hotel. Several hotels in the area were closed so the pandemic is hurting. Hotel is in great location to Disney and restaurants and outlet stores. Would be stay again.
