The appartments on this Resort are made up from converted from hotel rooms(under a previous owner) and under the cirumstances, renovated really well. Appartments are beautifuly appointed and furnished and balconies the biggest I have seen, anywhere. And the view on to Marco beach itself, is stunning.
Only half the Resort plan has so far been built; this has left an isolated Reception area, the gym and Activity Centre currently in converted appartments and no covered access between the carpark and the appartments - which can be fun(not!!) in the rain!! These issues should all be resolved upon completion of the Resort- which would now appear to be happening in the near future.
New General Manager, Andy Sorenson is pulling out all the stops to make this Resort an even bigger success than it already is, His vision, passion and enthusiasm are evident to all! This enthusiasm has rubbed off on his team - Alysha's sunset yoga was amazing to experience, she is quick to learn and remember your ame and so friendly! Ryne vvery kindly went to the shops before his shift and purchased me my own pack of gluten free chips so that I could enjoy the "Cook Out" along with other guests.These little things are so important- thank you ! All staff were friendly and helpful including the security men at the Resort and beach etrance.
Activities here are the best we have encountered. One evening was spent listening to the talented vocals of MrJohnny Fusco, whilst enjoying free wine and cookies. On another evening we had a lovely wine and cheese social - such fun to be able to network and make new friends. Andy was here, rushing around with his notebook, making copious notes of guests comments and esuring that everyone was having a great time!
On another evening we watched a dvd of a Jimmy Buffett Concert, whilst enjoying frozen Margaritas.
Marco Island itself does not have much to offer apart from the beach but if you want to come and just chill out in a beautiful place you could do much worese tha spending time here!! Wear your flip flops on the beach, the shells can be sharp!
We had a wonderful time and left having been made to feel really special and valued as guests, by Andy and his team. Thank you - we shall be back!!
