"Very quiet and private"
This was my 3rd trip to Provo; the first two times I stayed on Grace Bay. I like Grace Bay location better than this marina location, but it was still a good choice for this trip and I would return. The sand is soft, but not as soft as Grace Bay. However, the sand is easier to walk on and the beach is closer, making it a better option for people with mobility issues or disabilities.
The beach was mostly empty - we always had good choice of chairs, hammocks, and sofas. Except for waves created by passing watercraft, the water was very calm, making it a better option for children. There were typically 2 to 6 boats an hour of various sizes. Despite 'No Wake Zone' few boaters complied. Being next to the marina meant occasional diesel odor. But, the odor was infrequent and passed quickly.
Convenience of having a well-stocked market was great (wines, liquor, soda, beer, sunscreen, meal ingredients, snacks, toiletries, coffee bar, fresh prepared foods), although there was a high premium charged for this convenience. Excellent food at Fire & Ice, but very small meal portion and miniscule appetizer portion. Food at Salt and The Market was very good.
Our 1 BR suite was clean and comfortable. The balcony was large. Kitchen had everything needed to make snacks or cook meals. The staff was very friendly and attentive, when needed. Free shuttle to other hotels was convenient, but isolated location meant you had to travel everywhere. You are on a large compound and cannot walk anywhere.
