“Great relaxing property....”
Reviewed 2 October 2013

We had a wonderful stay at Marriott's Villas at Doral. It is a bit of a drive to go to the beach...but we did it and it was okay. Trump has a property next door that is being renovated....hope to see it when it is done. Guests at Marriott can enjoy that property as well.

We spent 2 nights here. It was perfect for what we had in mind. Another couple and ourselves flew out from Texas and had a wonderful time. Rooms were great with more than enough room. Clean and comfy! We enjoyed one of the best mango margaritas we have ever had. Bar doesn't have a huge menu, but it's more than enough if you are just hanging by the pool for the day which is exactly what we did. We enjoyed the activities the resort provided. Nice thing about this time do the year, it was not crowded at all. The weather was perfect. Bartender JP was great, Marisol, Gloria, and Maggie great ambassadors for their resort!

Stayed at the Doral Marriott for a family vacation and loved the rooms and service. What a friendly staff. Also LOVED having access to the Trump Resort across the street. Beautiful pools and golf course. The Marriott staff takes you in a golf court and picks you up when you're ready to return to the resort. Its a smaller timeshare with minimal food outlets but its a short drive to good Cuban restaurants and local eateries. We will be back!!

I was very impressed of the layout of the rooms. The floor plan was open and kitchen very nice and stocked with blender, pitcher, and other items that were functionally useful. Living room and balcony overlooking the golf course adjacent to a large open master bedroom and bathroom. I wish my apartment looked like this!

Mini golf course, large chess game, bean bag tic-tac-toe toss, shuffleboard were very well placed along the pond of the property. Pool and hot-tub were close but no too.

The fitness center was medium sized but appeared small because of it's narrow layout. I've worked in Fitness and PT for many years so I was surprised to see no fit balls or medicine balls. All in all not bad equipment nice and in great condition.

Lastly, this property is right near Miami Airport. It didn't bother my crew, it's fun to watch planes come in to land.. after a couple of days it's not as noticeable.

Room Tip: The resort offers free shuttle the Mall.. Also you have use of the Trump properties and golf course...

We are time share owners of Aruba Surf Club - we have stayed at other Marriot time shares and hotels.We stayed from 8/16-8/23. We chose this resort because we were dropping off our freshman at the U. We had to fly in from New York and needed to use it as a home base.Dirty is the word I would use to describe this location. The unit we stayed in had stains on the couches and chairs - the unit had not been dusted or mopped in some time. If you chose not to use the elevators there was only one staircase that could be used to enter the pool or to go to and from your car. The open stairwell was outright filthy. Pool rules were not enforced - smoking in the pool area, guests in pool at 2am in the morning? Drive right by this timeshare-

Marriott's Villas at Doral
Mixed reviews for this resort. As loyal Marriott customers and Marriott time-share owners, we’ve stayed at many, many M(arriott) properties. Doral is pretty good, but not the best.

Location: Smack dab in the suburb of Doral, so Walmarts and Applebees in every direction. Good locale for R&R/golf but takes some driving to Miami downtown or beaches: 20-25 mins (moderate traffic) for downtown and more for the beaches. Heavy traffic is common.

Property: Resort is small for those used to large, rambling M resort properties. For instance, our home resort (in Orlando) has three swimming pools where Doral only has one; along with only one hot tub and one outdoor “restaurant/bar”. Restaurant/bar food was very good and fairly priced but place opens late and closes early on most nights. Property is very clean and well-maintained. Exception is the pool which was barely bussed during our stay. We had to clear dirty dishes and used towels nearly every trip to the pool. My husband did say something to the attendant at the restaurant/bar but no action was ever taken. Ongoing construction in stairwells/sidewalks inconvenienced us a few times but was not a big deal. (Doral management generously compensated all guests with an on-site store credit of $25 that week.)

Activities: Like other M resorts, Doral organizes daily activities for guests. Although we mostly sightsaw on our own, we did participate in a few – which get mixed reviews. A nighttime movie at the pool was poorly run; started a half hour earlier than posted, impossible to hear and difficult to see. However, their 4th of July activities were plentiful, fun and very well run. For kids, there are pool toys, a small mini-golf course and a game room. (Unfortunately most of the video games in the game room were out of order the week of our stay.) Pool cabanas are free and terrific for those planning lengthy stays at the pool. Didn’t use the gym, spa or golf course but all looked great. There is shuttle service between Doral and the Trump resort next door. We used it several times and it is very convenient.

Villas: Wonderful. Definitely up to the Marriott standard and beyond. We had a 2-BR/2-BA overlooking the pool. Very spacious, comfortable and up-to-date; all appliances worked well with ample storage for four adults and one teen.

Service: Good. Everyone was generally pleasant and helpful. However, when we asked if we could get shuttle service to a 4th of July fireworks display about four blocks from their regular run to the Trump resort, we were denied repeatedly --- until we offered to pay!! LOL We were happy to finally get the assistance but really think that service should have been complimentary given the holiday.

All in all a pretty good resort but if you plan to do lots in Miami or South Beach, stay closer to downtown.

Room Tip: Pool stayed noisy until after 11pm most nights - so stay away from pool if you go to bed early.

Although the property does not have as stunning a location as some of the other Marriott timeshare properties, it is by far the best family deal. We were at the property for just 3 nights but during the summer, think summer break, the points required is less than I have seen at any other Marriott property. The villas themselves have been kept up beautifully. The outside hallways look a little worn, but who's spending time in the hallways anyway. The pool, although not large is perfect for smaller children. There also are an abundance of daily activities (including free activities) in which to participate that wont break the bank.

Need a summer getaway? This is your place.

Room Tip: Great vacation value
