This is our first visit to a Marriott using our MVC points. Great room and design! Pool was refreshing! Activities were plentiful, but we already had plans off-resort. Thanks for a great first experience!

We were traveling with 10 girls for a bachelorette party. These villas provided the perfect atmosphere for a party yet space to relax. The large pool was a great spot for a group. Will definitely stay here again.

We returned again to the villas for a fun girls weekend. The villa was clean and spacious. The staff was very welcoming and efficient. We stuck to the villa pools, did not go to the main resort pool. I think they charge 20/person for access. Kind of lame, but so is taking the shuttle in the heat to get there....

I found a great package deal on their website which included two night stay, a 60 min couple massage and a free breakfast for...

We come here every two or three years and it is fantastic. It is a great Marriott Property. Having the JW next door is a big plus.
