Things To Do - Marriott Sunset Ritual

Have you seen the sunset ritual at the Marriott? I have and really enjoy it ... I go to Quinns a lot and I LOVE the Marco Beach sunset ... combine the two and the polynesian fire dancer is an extra!!!

The Sunset Ritual takes place outside Quinn's on the Beach. Since everyone has access to the beach, I don't see how anyone can stop you walking up and watching from nearbye, or you could always treat yourself to a drink and/or an evening meal there.

Great idea. Thanks Clare 1066. Do you know if reservations are required for sunset? We'd be there in July.

I have never tried to book Quinn's Don't know if it is possible or not, perhaps someone more local than i am knows the answer to that, or contact hotel when you are there.

What I know is .... the sunset ritual is seen on the beach 15 feet away from Quinns flower bed ... so you see the gulf sunset behind the dancer. You won't see the event close to the gulf water. Technically the dancer is on Marriott property.

I have never called for reservations, so it is likely they don't take them. First come first serve,

Yes Quinns is very busy at sunset, so if you do go, then go early. The best tables with sunset views tend to be filled until after sunset when people go back to their hotel rooms.

When they first started the ritual last Sept / Oct it was not every night. The above CNN link says "every night".

FYI on windy nights I can image they could cancel or shorten the ritual due to personal injury to the dancer.
