Our 1st time here, but NOT our last! From the "front desk" hospitality shown, to the immaculately-kept grounds & amenities, we felt like we were "at home" for a wonderful week! Our accommodations were compact, but complete, all things needed for a comfortable stay. ALL staff were cordial (even security,& housekeeping), like close FAMILY. We especially enjoyed the Monday Morning...

This Resort/hotel is an amazing place to stay. It is clean, close to many amenities and best of all is the people at the front desk. One person in particular is Pamela Jackson. She has the best customer service you could ask for. Very pleasant and helpful! I have stayed here many times and she has never let me down....

We have been coming to Marina Bay Resort for 25+ years. From the very first time we walked in, we felt SO good about the facility. We would ask our children every year if they wanted us to trade the time share for another place....NO!!! They wanted to go back to Marina Bay Resort! Now, our children continue to return...

We went to Fort Walton Beach (FWB) for my friend of 45 years' wedding. We chose the Marina Bay Resort at random and found it was about a half mile from the wedding venue. The lobby and interior grounds are beautiful. We didn't use the pool but others did and it looked great. The place looks like it was built...
