The resort is impressive, I'm a keen golfer, play off 16 and the course & facilities are very impressive. The menus at the bar and restaurant are poor. We had a vegetarian with us, ordered a pizza at the Zest bar and it came out looking burned and like one of those supermarket cardboard pizzas.
Then the rooms, we stayed in the Country Club (upgraded rooms). It was the worst night I have ever had in a hotel, there was a wedding and lots of golfers clearly some had too much to drink and were jumping around upstairs at 0450 am! I called reception, they said someone would go and take a look (super), then at 6 am someone's alarm went off (on silent buzz mode). The room's sound proofing is a complete joke.
The rooms are well-appointed, the leisure facilities are great (sauna, steam room & pool). If you stay, avoid the Country Club rooms. Come on Marriott I know you are better than this, it's unacceptable.
