This was our second stay at Marriott's Oceana Palms this winter. The first time we stayed in the Sunrise tower (near the ocean) and the second time we stayed in the Sunset tower (near the road) and I can honestly say they were both very nice locations with great views. The manager was kind enough to show us the difference before we checked in as we really wanted the Sunrise tower again on our second visit. I can't remember his name, but he was so kind and thoughtful that it made the beginning of a great week.
Although Marriott has only a tiny footprint at this location the pool, bar, whirlpools where very nice but a bit crowded for our liking. (Marriott---grab that empty lot south of the Oceana Palms!) At near full occupancy it was too loud and crazy by the pool and we have kids! I have to agree with other reviewers that the music played all day long (Loud) at the pool was annoying if you just wanted to relax. As always, the Marriott has a great kids club with so many activities that are run extremely well. The night time entertainment was great with the outdoor movies, singers at the restaurant and games for all. One suggestiong would be to have the annoucer for the pool side games etc move towards the north end of the pool and keep the south end as a "quiet zone" if that is possible in such a small space.
We rented bikes (so reasonable!) and road to the state park just down the street which was fabulous! Beautiful views of the ocean with a completely empty beach. A great place to relax, bird watch, walk on the beach etc.
Michael, Nicole and LaToya at the front desk were more than accomodating on any request that we had during our stay. Really....outstanding employees!! The maintenance guy brought us an extra lounge chair to our deck and was so kind---he wouldn't even take a tip from us! He said no...it's part of my job! Seriously....that guy rocks!
Going north of off Singer Island there are all sorts of grocery stores, restaurants, shopping, and golf. Riveria BEach has done a nice job of cleaning up Blue Heron Blvd. closer to Singer Island---but it has a ways to go before i would say it has completely finished. We had dinner at the Riveria Beach Marina and loved that tucked away place! Nothing fancy---but a great place to people watch and check out the boats.
We wll be back to the Oceana Palms!
