As I understand the current situation paying full price for a room that does not include the pool or the gym, or food really did not please me. No choice on breakfast, I don’t eat what was served neither did my son. So it was an added expense for us to go out to breakfast as well as lunch and dinner. It didn’t feel it was up the Marriot standards and it was not a great experience at all.

Property was as described. Did not receive a cleaning of the room during our stay which is likely attributable to the corona virus.
