Being a Bonvoy member, we usually stay at the Marriot chain. This was a great pleasant surprise primarily because of great customer service and the staff who genuinely try their best to make your stay pleasant. Two thumbs up!

Check in was efficient. Room was clean and modern. I was worried my kids noise would carry to other rooms and down the hall. Rooms not sound proof enough. Coffee machine in lobby was broken for the whole stay. Pool, slide and hot tub were great for the kids. Breakfast included. Kids also eat free with adult purchase of dinner entree. Nice views from the Salt n Spray restaurant decent food but it was slow since it was under staffed. Convenient location.

Disliked: Staff & service
This is a very disappointed Experience. Firstly, we did not get a daily house keeping while we stayed 2 nights. Secondly, we have three people and only received one bottle of shampoo, one conditioner and one soap. Thirdly, when I asked for more, my husband had to pick them up at the front desk because we waited for a while and nothing had been delivered. We also did not get fresh towels. I never had any experience like this before while staying at a hotel at this level. The staff are cold too, I hope they could be nice to their customers and make them feel home away home.

The property has such a great location with beautiful water front views. However it is very rundown and outdated. Not very clean. We were very disappointed with the condition of the rooms and felt like we were staying at a motel
