        We enjoyed the morning breakfasts but definitely will find out about a meal plan next stay. Very nicely decorated for the Christmas season.

        We were in room 2307 2 rooms away from the elevator and we constantly would hear the elevator going up and down during the night.

      • Family with children

        friendly,helpful but mind you I tipped very well for everything that was done for me. The bell hops stood there waiting for his hand out when bringing my luggage to & from for my daughter & myself. I thought this to be very unprofessional.

        I feel it was definatley over-priced for what I needed. I guess I expected more for the $$$

        I came for a weekend wedding. The accomodations were excellent and the staff more that friendly and helpful. It was the weekend of the Boat Poker Run, therefore was very very noisy. The wedding was outside by the bay/20 or so feet from the wedding set -up and it made hearing the service rather difficult as the vows were made just as the boats returned from their "runs". This did not however take away from the events later in the evening. Your staff is wonderful, the events staff is their equal.

        I would have thought that the events planner could have alerted the parties to the other activities planned for the day. A wedding at 5:30pm, pool area side, and the boat activities did not go hand in hand. My room on the l2th floor (l2l7) immediately above the set-up of the wedding and the coming and going all day of the boats was subject to both events. My stay, however, was delightful.

        Nothing would prefer a "Hilton Hotel" any day more value for money and better facilities.

        An absolute rip off hotel they charge extra for everything wifi (usd 18.95/day), breakfast (usd 24.00/day), parking (usd 22.00/day) exorbitant charges for phone calls, a money making machine a bunch off "Bandits", dubious representation 3 star facilities and bleed you dry with 5 star charges. Checked in at usd 112.00 day rate checked out paying a bill of usd 146.00 + usd 79 with Taxes and extras. Total usd 225.000 for one night. Will never stay at a Marriott again "no value for money".

        The staff was extremely helpful and upbeat. They were effective, courteous, and personable while still very professional.

        Lack of free internet in the guest rooms. Significant cost of parking and the lack of a complementary shuttle to the airport.

      • Group of friends
        10.0

        We were very comfortable. Great beds! Lovely view over the Marina and pool. Service was excellent. Would suggest a mini bar in the room. We had an excellent stay and the conference facilities were excellent.

        My car came back from valet parking with three dents on the trunk left by someone putting a suitcase on it I suspect. Could not complain because we had to leave in a hurry.

        location, cost, the pool...

        I liked the ease of parking.

        I did not like the price gouging. It was thoroughly overpriced for everything. It would be nice to have complementary parking and some sort of free breakfast. For the price, they need to provide this. I've stayed a cheaper hotels and had better accommodations. I don't understand the need to charge for everything when the price is so high already. I'm not saying to provide a continental breakfast, but add something to make it worth the guest's wild. Soda machines have a $2 soda. What is the need for that? Just because most of the guests who stay there have a higher income, doesn't mean you have to gouge.

        My husband and I travel often and the Marriott Waterside is our favourite hotel. We're in Florida for the winter and we will return to this hotel.

      • Family with children

        Only had an overnight stay here but would have liked to have stayed longer. Friendly staff, nice location and outlook from the restaurant terrace. Would definitely recommend.

      • Older travelers
        9.2

        Upon arrival, we were asked if we would like to upgrade to a bay view and he thoroughly revied options, including the price of each upgrade. He then askd if we had any special requests. Everyone was always very helpful and friendly.

        The king bed on the window side was very soft, but I slept in the middle of the bed and all was good.
