We have stayed at this resort a few times before (even before it was a Marriott) and have always loved it. This was the first time that we rented through VRBO, rather than renting directly from the hotel. We are so glad that we tried VRBO! You save so much money and still have access to all the same amenities as hotel guests (minus the daily housekeeping). Tiffany was very easy to work with, and answered all my emails within hours of me sending them. The unit was exactly as stated. A few things to note, the unit does not have a full oven (only a large toaster oven) and the cooktop only has two burners. This is in no way a problem, just be aware of this when purchasing food to cook.
The resort is amazing. Both pools are kid friendly and it's nice to be able to alternate. We went to the adult pool or beach in the morning and then the kid pool in the afternoon. The kid pool in the morning was a little chilly because the hotel blocks the sun. The ocean was so clear in the morning. My son loved walking out to the rocks and seeing all the fishes and hermit crabs. By the afternoon the rocks were covered by the water so make sure you go in the morning. If you want to leave the resort, we recommend Johnny Longboats. We ate there twice for lunch and loved it. It's about 1 mile from the hotel and we walked there both times.
We loved it here and can't wait to come back soon!!!!
