“Simply not value for money and poor service”
Reviewed 16 November 2013 via mobile

We went there for our holiday. I had the bas surprise of having two 160cm beds in our room instead of a king size bed which makes sense for a couple and although we booked early. The team proposed us to put our beds together, I ended up sleeping against the wall and without bed light as the wire was too short.

The breakfast is great but there is no service at your table, only young people without any structure and management. Same at the pool restaurant. The food at the pool is not european and with low quality. No organization of the pool area.

Unecessary waiting lines at the breakfast.

The bar is not welcoming style, nor the salon or relaxing areas.

The general style is unpersonal. Poor organization of activities.

Customers type are heterogenous and not behaving like in a five star hotel for unclear reasons.

I have of course communicated my deception and a whole series of facts, but only got a 'sorry'...

The hotel is set up for golfers with rooms for clubs etc. they need to rethink the food on offer as this is just buffet style and quite expensive, there are options of eating at the golf club house tat do an extensive menu at a high standard or a local restaurant TriBeCa which is about 10 euros away by taxi.

The hoel is clean, very friendly staff and I would be very happy to play golf here again with two magnificent courses on offer including a steve course which was one of his last projects. Package prices good as well.

Room Tip: All Roos seem good

1. As a resort, the location is perfect which is just next to the beach.
2. Very big bedrooms compared with other european standard hotel.
3. Wonderful facilities and hardware, including: indoor and outdoor swimming pool, bar, etc. All the facilities are great and maintained as a top class hotel.
4. The bed linens are extremely comfortable.
5. Hotel staffs are very international, speaking excellent English as the basic.
6. Great hospitality attitude to us and having the initiatives to serve during our stay in the hotel.

The only flaw is that nearby the hotel area, there are not so many choices of restaurants, as a guest, you will have to have a car to drive a bit far out of the area.

Room Tip: Room 241 has the best seaview room among the standard suite if your budget is limited within this le...

Beautiful hotel with a pristine beach location. Everything about this property was amazing. The staff, the food, the pool, I couldn't have asked for a better vacation experience. The front desk staff were extremely helpful and recommended some great restaurants to go to in the nearby town of Peniche. The restaurant at the hotel was fabulous as well. The dinner buffet was delicious! I cannot wait to come back and visit here again!

These facilities offer all required in a top class hotel.
The rooms are spacious and in brilliant conditions. The breakfast buffet is excellent and offers an amazing variety. Other facilities, such as the pool and bars, etc are also great.

Returned to Marriott two years later. Still great location, spaciousness, large pool area and gardens, spectacular location. Good and friendly service. Had to wait until 3.30pm for the room, but with an upgrade to seaview, which we appreciated. Ventilation system is quite noisy, but around 8pm it was switched off and quiet. We prefer the beach to the pool, even if there are quite a few steps. A bit of a struggle to get a sunbed in the morning, cant understand why only 20 were available when there were so many guests. All in all, a very pleasant stay. Breakfast buffet is just perfect. Only negative was the Marriott Burger I had by the pool, € 18 with a half bottle of water. Rather dry, tasteless and "factory"-foodlike. French fries were dry, overdone. There are good local restaurants not too far away, but you really need a car to get there. Most of them have excellent French fries:)

Room Tip: Even the mountainview rooms seem to be nice, with plenty of sunshine in the morning. Seaview side ge...

Went to Praia del ray appts on 6th October, when we walked through the door was impressed with the size. The kitchen is really impressive with everything you need. Main bedroom really spacious with plenty of cupboard space and nice ensuite, 2nd bedroom no cupboard space at all and small wardrobe space, very disappointing, nice bathroom though.Reception staff are excellent nothing too much trouble and really nice people.
We went up the road to the Italian Argento, which is lovely overlooking the sea, with lovely food too, Well worth a visit.
The Golf is 62 euros per round, if you book at reception which is cheaper, to hire clubs is 39 euros, don't forget to bring your own balls so to speak.
Hire a car is a must as quite out of the way. A visit to obidos is essential as lots of shops selling cherry liquor with a chocolate cup for 1 euro.
Will deff come here again.
