Positives: gorgeous room. We got the cheap seats, so we didn't spend much time on our balcony, but it's a nice size. Great service. Gorgeous beach. Pool wasn't our scene bc it was where the kids were but it was a lovely pool with plenty of seating, very clean. Location is great, you can walk to the movies and there is an incredible Italian restaurant next door. The spa is worth a visit and you can stay and lounge as long as you like.
Negatives: while we did get a reasonable rate using a discount site, our room didn't include Internet, parking wasn't free, beach umbrellas weren't free, and the restaurants are so over priced. There's a Starbucks in the lobby but that's another expense. Nothing is included in the price so really this place costs more than you think.
There is yoga on the beach,a ten min walk away, and a state park not too far. We loved Marco island, the beach is pristine and there is amazing wildlife everywhere. Sunsets and dolphins and some great spots to eat. Most days we walked next door to Stilts and ate there for lunch or dinner. Snook Inn was fun and festive and they have fresh seafood. Mangos bistro was great for breakfast.More
