Harbor Beach Marriott Resort & Spa
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
The amenities at the property are top notch. I cannot say anything negative about them. However, our room was not nearly as good. At first glance, it looked great. I requested feather free (due to any allergy), and they had that completed upon arrival. I started out impressed. And then on the second day, we noticed the ants that seemed to be everywhere. There was a steady stream moving along the wall across the room. I even found then in my suitcase trying to get into my vitamins. They were all over the desk where I had my 8 year old's suitcase. It was awful. Then we all took showers after a day at the pool to get ready for evening, and I noticed my daughter's feet were black on the bottoms afterwards. My husband and I checked our feet, and it was the same. Apparently the tile floor was so dirty, within 15 minutes of getting out of the shower, the bottoms of our feet were filthy from walking around barefoot.
My wife surprised me with a getaway for my B Day from 12/26-1/1. She further surprised me with our 3 single adult children joining us on 12/28. The resort was lovely in all respects. We have stayed in town on several occasions with friends who own a condo just south of the resort in Point of Americas. All of the stars aligned for a tremendous getaway and that is exactly what we had but for a big issue we had to overlook and overcome on a daily basis. I need to give a big shout out to Brittney Truesdale as a tremendous asset to the resort. She was tremendously professional in a whole host of ways during our 6 days.But...the whole pool situation was out of control. It became very obvious, early on, that there were repeat visitors this week of the year and they were pampered with the most desirable lounge chairs surrounding the pool. On our first day, I asked the pool attendants what time the pool opened as there were no chairs at all at 4 pm when we arrived. I was told that the pool opened at 8am and that was when we could "save" a lounge chair. Playing by the rules, I set my alarm for 7:30 the next morning, arrived at the pool and all of the lounge chairs (3 deep) surrounding the pool had towels on them indicating they were reserved. We have found this to be a common dilemma for many resorts but it was out of control here...primarily because it was obvious that the staff was being "paid by these guests" to save the chairs. A couple of queen bees ruled the roost but... eventually we managed to get under their skin a couple of times by placing towels on beach chairs at 1AM (even before the staff could save them for them!!!). It's a ridiculous situation that the management needs to get its arms around. We cited it as a major issue for us to theGeneral Manager, who was exceedingly kind and understanding, but she concurred that it is an ongoing problem that the resort just doesn't know how to address. I get the issue but...seriously???!!!Despite this, we had a terrific time. Crazy to say, however, because of the pool situation, we won't be back. Forewarned is forearmed. As an fyi, I posted something similar to Marriott in response to their on line inquiry about our stay. I provided my cell phone number, as well, but they have not followed up with me for any additional feedback. That, too, is disappointing. Great getaway...won't be back.
We were treated very well. Room was spacious and we had fruit in our room. We had an ocean view room and I would encourage you to request this type of room as view was great. Only problem was at check-out. I was charged extra for meal and the front desk person did not have the sense to look at menu and kept me waiting 15 minutes to while he called restaurant.
Stayed here during a business trip during the last week of November. The hotel staff was very nice and accommodating. There are a few restaurants on the grounds, a spa, a pool, and private beach. The rooms are great with great views of the ocean or city. Highly recommend this hotel if you are staying in Fort Lauderdale.
Stayed recently for a business meeting. Hotel is OK overall. Right on the beach but felt somewhat like they nickel and dime you for everything. Not a fan of the "resort fee" however it is spun as a cost saver good deal. Did enjoy the bar and breakfast although very overpriced for what they had. If required would stay again but would not highly recommend.
