“Family Reunion Thanksgiving”
Reviewed 2 December 2013

We stayed with our party of 21 people with my elderly mother.The size of the property was perfect for getting around. There is nothing worse than a big resort when you forget something in your room and it takes 20 minutes to get it. There was always something going on at the pool, so our family was able to spend most of our week without leaving the resort. Our young adult children enjoyed beach volleyball and playing pool until late at night. The staff couldn't have been friendlier or more accomodating. The rooms are new and beautiful.Though we had an ocean view room, the balconies were spacious with a good view of the ocean and intercoastal. There was everything we needed to serve Thanksgiving dinner in our room. We had a family photo taken by the photographer reccomended by the hotel. She was great as well.

the good: friendly staff, very clean and well-kept property. great proximity to the beach. lots of activities for kids and kids' staff was great. great to have access to free beach chairs and free parking! beach was very clean with nice sand.

the bad: parking lot is so tight i'd be surprised if they don't have a lot of fender benders. although staff is friendly, don't expect 5 star service -- no valet, doorman, pool/beach service etc (i don't need that stuff, but people should be aware it isn't there).
it has a hustle and bustle feel. if you're traveling with (young-ish) kids and looking for entertainment, i think it's a good fit. if you're looking for a relaxing, quiet trip i don't think this is the place. lots of noise by the pool -- people on microphones playing games of "family feud," blackjack, etc. by the pool, music playing constantly, and you're just surrounded by people all the time in the public spaces. I think they do the best they can with the space provided, it's just a tight fit.
o, our biggest complaint was the noise from the unit above us every night!! we could hear walking, thumping, furniture dragging -- possibly bowling (?) every night til 1:30am. noise from adjoining units was buffered well, but not from above. also, the pics of "huge" balconies was a bit deceiving. we had an ocean-front corner unit and the "wrap around" balcony was not as large as expected. i don't believe an upgrade to ocean-front is worth it unless you plan on spending ALL your time on your balcony.
also, it was way windy every day of our 6 day stay. i think that's just part of the location of being on Singer Island. just expect that being on a small island on the atlantic side is going to make for a windy vaca. and there's a very strong sweet perfume smell throughout the whole property. it made me nauseous. i know this review sounds totally nit-picky, but i'm a picky leisure traveler (i'll stay anywhere clean for business, but for leisure i want the best!), and just want to let similar travelers know what to expect.
all in all, i would stay here again if i was in the area, but i will look for somewhere else for next year's vacation.

Room Tip: i don't thing upgrade to ocean-front is worth it. seemed all rooms had a decent view and you spe...

I usually love the Marriott properties but this one is a terrible design. They put too much on a postage stamp lot....too many people, not enough pool or sitting space. Two buildings on this small lot should have never been allowed. Parking is terrible....overall, I would NOT recommend this property.
The rooms are nice though...but hey, ya come to Florida to be outside by the pool...

Room Tip: Choose another Marriott property. If you must stay here ask for the beachfront building

This was the best timeshare resort we have ever been to in our nearly 10 years of trading our Orlando timeshare! We received a beautiful room on the 19th floor which is the second to the top floor in the sunrise building which is the building right on the beach. Our view was north facing which means we didnt get any sun but we had a beautiful view. The resort tries to provide many activities for the family including muffins and mimosas on Wednesdays and Fondue Friday! They also had many exercise and kids activities scheduled everyday. The beach as also gorgeous with the water temperature around 80 everyday however some days it was a little rough for swimming. The best part of this resort was the staff. They were always so nice and more than willing to talk to you as you passed them in the hallway. We will be back! Hopefully sooner rather than later!

Room Tip: Ask for the sunrise building and if you want sun make sure to say south facing.

This is a very good and typical Marriott Vacation Club Resort. It has beautiful villas, very nice amenities, a good casual dining restaurant and best of all, for those who love the beach, a wonderful Atlantic Ocean beach front setting. However, the real reason I am writing this review is that my wife and I recently experienced what clearly was some of the friendliest, most courteous and helpful service ever received in a lifetime at travel. We have stayed at many Marriott Vacation Club and other similar resorts. At this level you come to expect good service and virtually always get it. However, the fine people at this resort have really kicked it up a notch. You cannot pass a staff member without them engaging you in a friendly manner, invariably asking if you are enjoying your stay and often asking if there's anything they can do to make it better. This interaction may happen 3, 4 or more times in a trip from your villa to the pool or beach but I came to realize that it never got old. There can't be too much friendliness and civilty in this world. So, while I am generally a big fan of Marriott Vacation Club Resorts I really take my hat off to the folks at Oceana Palms. They are clearly doing a stellar job of top notch hospitality. Thanks, you made our week with you something special!

We've been guests at several time share or vacation club properties. While we aren't interested in owning one, we were very impressed with this facility and its staff. We had a spacious 2-bedroom, 2-bath villa with a balcony which extended from one end to the other with ocean views from boh bedrooms and the living room. The kitchen was well-equipped and the master bath had a huge shower with jets (which unfortunately sprayed the bathroom floor. The pool was vey nice but the ocean was only steps away making it more inviting. We were surprised with muffins and mimosas one morning and, while we didn't use them, the facilities for children looked interesting. A small cafe and store is available for stocking the kitchen.

Room Tip: Some villas had a small ocean view but included a view of the shore lights. I personally prefer the...

This property has two towers with less than 150 rooms total. The staff is very friendly, really top shelf. They are consistently upbeat and very helpful. We felt like we were at a high-end boutique hotel.

The property is very quiet. Even at 85% occupancy, it feels like your there with only another dozen couples.

The rooms are nice and comfortable. The pool, bar and beach are well integrated and enjoyable.

We will be back.
