Marriott's Newport Coast Villas
Ranked #4 of 18 Hotels in Newport Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 April 2014

We went there this past spring break for their promotional tour. The property sits on a hillside that should overlook the Pacific. Our 2 BR unit did not, so our stay inside the unit felt like apartment living. We were with our two teen boys and went site seeing up and down the coast to Newport Beach, Laguna, Balboa, etc and the weather was perfect! These towns offer fun beach side spots and great restaurant dining as well, The beach/surf shops were a treat and the boating and marina was great value add.

We would never buy here, though, because the ocean views are so limited even poolside, where you have to stand to catch the ocean - poolside lounging barely reveals the ocean.

Amenities were nice and they definitely cater to families offering evening events, nice sports facilities, and premium movie selection. Since the property requires driving for dinner and recreation, we think they should add a restaurant for when you are ready to stay at the property and do not want to cook in your own kitchen.

They do offer shuttle service to the fun nearby towns, but are limited and you will still need to cab it home, if you take the evening shuttle.

All in all, the property is higher end and the grounds are lovely. The interior units are nice but not super high end- more Marriott hotel fixtures, etc.
Again, if there was more of a view and a full dinner restaurant, this property would have more going for it for our family.

Room Tip: ask for an ocean view

My wife and I were on a road trip from Coronado up the California coast and spent 3 nights here. The resort is very large with many multi-storied buildings. We stayed in building 2800 on the second floor. This turned out to be a big problem because, as we were soon to find out, we could hear every move and step taken by the people above us.

After exploring the area and pool and returning to our unit around 6:00 pm, the noise from the unit above us started. After a couple of hours of listening to the pounding and every footstep taken by the people above, we called the front desk to complain. The front desk sent a security person over to our unit to investigate. When the security person arrived, he came into our unit and listened to the noise above us. He agreed that it was very loud but explained that the noise was "normal" for the buildings in this resort. Apparently, there was some type of building design/construction flaw which results in you hearing every step or other noise from the people above you. He further explained that there wasn't much that could be done to eliminate this problem. The only action that he could take was to talk to the people in the unit above ours and ask them if they could be more careful and not make too much noise when they moved around.

Needless to say, this did not solve the problem. After the noise from above continued, we called the front desk back and asked if we could be moved to a unit on the top floor of one of the other many buildings on the property. The front desk told us that there wasn't any other top floor units available and that we would move to another building to a unit on either the first or second floor. Either way, we would still have people above us and probably would have a similar noise problem. So since we had already unpacked everything including our groceries, we decided to stay put and tolerate the noise. This definitely put a damper on our stay here.

Room Tip: Do not stay here unless you get a unit on the top floor of your building.

The Marriott's Newport Coast Villas lived up to all the positive reviews. The staff was very friendly and professional. The two-bed room villa was well cleaned and the view from the patio of the ocean was exceptional. The landscape around the villas was first rate. I would highly recommend this resort and look forward to my next trip.

Room Tip: The higher floors in buildings 4100 and 4400 have great views.

Spent a week there, as I came from Thailand we didn't spend time at the pool nor the beach.

The room is big and nice, with all the amenities you need. Dishwasher, microwave, oven and big fridge and also washer dryer. They also provided all the detergents need for the whole week.

It's a big resort, so it's good to know where you want to be. I have little kids, so I stayed near the tot lot, very good for them to wait for me to load/unload or cleaning up before we leave the hotel in the morning.

The staff are great, nice and helpful.

Newport Coast Villas are various buildings spread over a large area. The higher floors usually have a great view of the coast and the ocean. The villas are all 2 bedrooms, 2 baths. There are two pools by the clubhouse and other pools in other areas. The main pools get crowded during spring break and summer. The villas themselves are spacious, with one large bedroom and another smaller one, a full kitchen, a living room area, dining table for 6, two tubs and a walk in shower. There are TV's in the living and bedrooms, as well as a DVD player. (Note that it is a DVD player; it does not play Blu-Ray discs.) At popular times, parking may be a little issue, but they will send carts to ferry you from your villa to the clubhouse or parking garage. There are barbeques outside, as well as a couple of fire pits and game areas for kids. Downstairs they have activities for children. There is also a small movie theater. There are also free movies on TV, as well as the usual cable channels. The staff is very friendly and helpful. People who live in the LA area, as well as those farther away, come here. You can have the same view as multi-million dollar homes a little ways away. Dining is limited; only La Vista Bar by the main pools serves food. La Vista has a great happy hour. If you want a getaway, whether with family or one or two couples, this is a great place to stay.

Gorgeous Tuscan style setting makes you feel like you're in Italy. The front desk staff was so pleasant and helpful. A bottle of wine was delivered to our room on my husband 's bday. What a nice surprise!

Marriott Newport Coast villas are beautiful. We are a family of five with three small children. The villas provide a perfect place for a large family to stay comfortably. We thought our room was very clean upon check in but found the last guest's underwear under the sofa. We also requested a week ahead of time top floor ocean view and did not receive either. We were on ground floor and the room and the walking in the room above us was very loud.
