Fell in love with the Club
Posted Aug 27, 2008
When we got to Ocean Club and got our room, I was disappointed because it was not on upper floors and didn't really have a great of view. When we asked to be moved, they did not have any rooms to move us to. As the week went on, I realized they were absolutely full and I see why. It's a time share and many people return year after year. The Marriott is great. It's clean, great location, best beach area, and nice pools! There is a ongoing fight with the pools. Surf can't use Ocean and Ocean can't use Surf. But, people still try and do it and I saw several irritated people complaining about it. The Surf Club has a really cool pool with a lazy river but the Ocean Club's pool is really lagoon like and not as many kids. Too bad you just can't use both when you are staying at either place - it really shouldn't matter but the timeshare owners of each decided you couldn't. The housekeeping was great and the Ocean Club is very clean. I love Marriott's BEDS! They were so comfortable. The bartenders at the swim up bar were great! Try Wilma's Slippery Monkey - it's De-Lish and a special recipe created by her! Giavanny is great too! Always had a smile for us. We will definately go back next summer and it's out of the hurricane zone so it's perfect 90 degrees every day! Very humid though. Stellaris Casino was fun for about 2 days and then you realize you will not win... so go back to the pool and beach and forget it. Spend your money on some great food and excursions!
