Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
You’ll love the location, the rooms are kept in great condition and clean, the beach area is really well done and ample room, the gym was well appointed and the staff were extraordinary. The only issue with this property is the design included no central walkway up the hill - so you wait for the tram up or walk up way around - although there is a secret way only the staff know, that I figured out ! I’ll definitely be back, in fact going back in 2 weeks!

Service is a disaster – worst Marriott experience
First,no one came to pick up our car and our luggage.Then we had no viewing of the stiff property which is problematic when no one had told you about the only existing funicular. Their English is poor.Male staff can be rude,e.g. declining to get you a coffee 5mn before the breakfast ends. They’ll clear the table though you’re not done, carrying dirty dishes from others. Multiple times our car came 30mn late after chasing and bringing someone’s else car.Once they just dropped it at the reception, engine and key on and no one around. More shocking, when we arrived at Sixt airport agency before flying, we realised that they had left the car key of another client into ours. Expect them to enter your room, randomly call despite your privacy request. Staff is robotic and unable to address any unexpected remark such as a no when asking if you’re pleased with your stay (with no action). Beach staff can be incredibly lazy (exception for the supervisor).They chill and can decline to bring you towels.No shame in letting elder people struggling to sit despite having the large area for suites almost empty. Conciergerie missed a dinner reservation. Final bill was twice wrong;we had to explain that is technically impossible that we had lunch before we checked in. Even hotels.com supervisor complained about them when trying to modify our reservation,which never happened. Don’t except a special treatment if you’re a Marriott Bonvoy member,late checkout or upgrade,despite availability
