How to Get There
This resort is really lovely. You really wouldn’t need to leave the resort if you were there for only a few days. It’s on a marina with 4 restaurants. The large balcony of our room overlooked mangroves and the river with a view of the sunrise, which was spectacular. The resort also owns a boat which takes you to Ft Myers Beach or on a sunset/dolphin cruise. We stayed during off season and we loved that there were no crowds.
Unfortunately the staff is nowhere near as good as the view. Treated poorly from reservation to check out. Tried asking for management and was actually told by a problematic associate was that he was in charge. Not exactly a four (or even two) star interaction. When I asked if he was the GM he advised he was not but refused to provide me with just even their name. Frankly things only got worse from there. Ruined our vacation. There are far prettier hotels with better views in the vicinity. Don't give your money to hotels that treat their guests this way.
Booked one of their 1 bed suites with 2 double beds - we wanted a king bed and asked for a swap - they responded saying that’s an upgrade and we would need to pay for that - what?! We are gold elite and when I asked what about the enhanced upgrades you get with the status she unhelpful lady at the front desk (Amy) responded saying ‘that’s just an upgrade to a higher floor’. She ended up giving us a regular, very awkward, and uncomfortable regular room with a king size bed. She also couldn’t confirm a late checkout (guaranteed with the food elite status). So what’s the status for?! This hotel and this reward program is complete nonsense - I don’t recommend this hotel at all, the staff are rude and unhelpful, they charge a ridiculous resort fee for no reason, and rooms are very outdated (our room had a random oversized fridge as soon as you walk through the door, because there is no built in mini bar - that’s how old it is. They don’t honor the loyalty, so I will never come back to this hotel or Westin hotels. Ever.
The rooms were nice but the carpet needed to be replaced due to being dirty. Tile would be a better option for Florida. Also the bed mattress was comfortable but the abundance of blankets and the pad underneath the sheet was unbearable. Everything slipped off the mattress. Plus the comforter had a funky smell to it. Almost a urine smell.
We were there for only the 4th of July. I would stay again but only for a day or maybe 2. We live in Naples so this was a staycation.
The pool was very crowded on the 4th but not as crowded on the 5th. Enjoyed the pool. It must have a chiller. The water was a perfect temperature unlike our pool in Naples that gets very warm in the summer.
Check in desk personnel are not friendly at all. Entryway in to the hotel is none remarkable, it was difficult to figure out where the front desk was located. Our room was ok, the bathroom sink faucet had toothpaste on it. For the price paid, I would expect better from an “upscale” Marriott brand.
