Blue Springs, Missouri • May 2013
"Excellent Vacation." MBOR was certainly one of the best resorts we have ever stayed. I wish I could remember all the names of the pleasant, helpful and courteous staff. They gave us many recommendations on resauturants that were magnificient. Very clean and beautiful resort. Loved the pool, beach with wait staff promptly waiting on us-never had to wait. Restaurant Sale e Pepe was outstanding! The only negative and it's really understandable is the mattress was a bit hard for me - However, We will definitely return!!!
Windermere, Florida • May 2013
Service was outstanding, very accommodating. Phil at the valet comes to mind. Room had a great view and plenty of space. Several cocktail bars to choose. Beachfront grill had a good selection so could stay poolside. Would highly recommend.

MBOR lived up to its reviews. The property is very nice with a large beach. It is well taken care of and extremely clean in the rooms and around the resort. Although it was fully booked, it never felt crowded and you never had to wait to have breakfast or lunch. All members of the staff went out of their way to accommodate you, were very pleasant and made you feel welcome. Each night a member of the housekeeping staff came by to ask if you wanted turn down service, extra towels, etc. The concierge actually phoned me a week before our arrival to ask if there was anything they could do in advance of our arrival. There are also very good restaurants minutes away. This was our second trip to Marco Island and we had forgotten how really nice it was. We will be back and will stay at the Marco Beach Ocean Resort.

"The Best Vacation Ever!" My husband and I attended a wedding for our niece at the hotel. We arrived on Thursday and stayed for a week. The hotel was clean (big factor for me personally) and tastefully decorated with everything I could possibly want. The view was spectacular and the staff in all areas were very accommodating. We were travelling with my in-laws and my father in-law has m.s. All the staff was aware of all of our needs and made sure the wheelchairs, etc. were where they needed to be and at what time. They also allowed us to extend our stay because of our circumstances. The wedding was also spectacular! I loved the setting on the beach, the casual atmosphere and of course our bride and groom looked beautiful and happy. The reception was amazing with plenty to drink, plenty of dancing and the food was the best ever. I don't think you could top what they did and provided for all of their guests. I was thrilled to be there and can't wait to get back!
Fairfax, Virginia • March 2013
Very comfortable suite (kitchen, living room, bedroom, bath and balcony) with the sole exception of the pillows which were too soft. The beach was a very short walk from the lobby. Chaises, umbrellas, and towels provided to all (cabanas available if preferred to the umbrella). Frozen fruit drinks, lemon ice water gratis with restaurant service available at your chair. All this and the Gulf, too.
Boston, Massachusetts • March 2013
"Simply The Best Resort!" This resort is stunning! The rooms are immaculate and spectacular! The beach is pristine and the guys who serve you on the beach are wonderful. Brian at the front desk is most accommodating. I would recommend one of the top floor two bedroom units. Can't wait to return!

"We keep coming back." We've been coming back to Marco Beach Ocean Resort for the last few years. The service standard is high, the staff is friendly, as the food top notch. It's location cannot be beat and as the island is so small it is easy to get around by bike. Great place!

“Classy, quiet and right on the beach”. My wife and I stayed two nights at this delightful resort during the middle of December as part of a trip to southern Florida for our anniversary. She spent a lot of time researching places to stay on Marco Island and she certainly picked the best one. From the valets who whisked in to take our car and luggage to the very genial general manager who came out to greet us as we checked in it was a first class stay throughout. The hotel is large enough to have a great assortment of amenities yet small enough so that you're personally greeted as you pass through the lobby and the restaurants. Our two room suite overlooked the pool and the beach area and featured a great terrace, kitchenette and a huge bathroom. Furnishings were clean, comfortable and were a pleasure to return to each night. We had breakfast and dinner in the main restaurant, Sale y Pepa, during our stay. The restaurant looks out over the beach and the staff for each meal were top notch. Especially at dinner, starting off at the bar and then moving on to the main room was just a great evening. And the food was spectacular too. We took full advantage of the concierges who were deskside during our stay. They had great recommendations for places to go and other places to eat. We walked to some of the other hotels that were close by and none of them compared to the MBOR. The Marriott next door was hosting a Michelin trade group and most everyone there seemed to be associated with that group. We certainly weren't looking to stay at a 'trade show' hotel, I get enough of that with Vegas. The hotel was great, the weather was mostly good, and the relatively quiet location made for exactly the getaway that we were looking for. We're pretty particular travelers and this place hit all the right notes. I would definitely recommend it and we're looking forward to returning next year.

“Best Vacation”. Last year my wife and I spent a week at this hotel. It was the most relaxing vacation. We left 4 kids at home and spent a week on the beach. The best was the sunsets I've never seen the sun drop into the ocean like that directly in front of the hotel since I am from the east coast. Get a room with a balcony on an upper floor it's worth it. The place was really nice and not busy you can get food served on the beach or by pool. In our early 40s we felt young in Marco. I think you could leave the keys in the car there and No one would bother it because likely theres is better. It's relaxing a great place to read your kindle and reconnect.
Jamison, Pennsylvania • November 2012
“The Most Beautiful Place”We recently stayed at Marco Beach Ocean Resort for the first time to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary and it was truly amazing! Hotel is beautiful, super clean and well appointed. We had a one bedroom suite with full gulf view that could not have been any better. The staff at this resort are so friendly and cannot do enough for you. The Concierge is so helpful at arranging dinners and things to do, I cannot say enough about her. They made our anniversary a very special time and we cannot wait to return next year.

“Listen Up Brides-to-Be!” If you are considering a destination wedding in Florida, the Marco Beach Ocean Resort should be your number one pick. It's one of the smaller, more intimate, venues but with a very personal touch. Our daughter and son-in-law just got married there on November 7th and I can't say enough about this resort. I made all the arrangements from home (Canada) and when we arrived it was done exactly as I had envisioned. The service at this resort is superior - EVERYONE on staff is very attentive to your needs and so polite - customer service is tops. Our guests stayed at the resort and each room faces the ocean with a spectacular view. They have efficiency kitchens in each 1-bedroom unit which was very well-received by everyone. The beach ceremony was beautiful as well as the wedding dinner and post-wedding brunch on the Sunset Terrace. The rehearsal dinner was by the pool and the evening was just lovely. We had our own personal chef and the BBQ was fantastic - the food exquisite! The wedding coordinator at the resort was fabulous. I brought everything to the resort one week before the wedding in boxes and bags, showed her exactly where and what I wanted situated and when I arrived on the wedding day, it was better than I had envisioned. She did a fabulous job! Both my husband and I, and the Bride and Groom were extremely pleased with the outcome. As guests arrived a few days before the wedding, the Bride and Groom spent valuable family time and also enjoyed being on the beach. With guests staying at the resort, it made our life less complicated as opposed to having everyone stay at different locations around the island. Give this wonderful resort a consideration - you WILL NOT be disappointed. Enjoy - we did!.
Largo, Florida • October 2012
“Unbelievable value and luxury”.think other reviewers did not give this fabulous hotel enough credit! It is amazing. It started out as a luxury condo building, but then the economy tanked and it was bought again and set up as a hotel. Thus the granite counter topped kitchenette, the crown molding, the ornate hallways etc. The pool and jacuzzi are awesome, as well as the gym. The best part is the location...right on the beach! There are wonderful staffers to take you to your loungers and umbrella. We tried the restaurants on site and they were great. We really enjoyed having lunch at the beach grill. They have yummy sweet potato fries. And Pepe de Sale was incredible. The limoncello tiramisu was out of this world! We plan on going back every year!
West Bloomfield, Michigan • October 2012
This was our first time at this resort and it was Wonderful !!!! The one bedroom suite was nice and we had a Great view of the Pool and the Gulf. The Staff was nice and very personable and made us feel very welcome (especially Paul the Bartender). How nice it was to return to your room at night with the bed turned back, chocolates on the pillow and nice soft jazz playing on the radio. The Concierge provided great information for nearby restaurants, bars and shopping. I would return to this resort without any hesitation.
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania • July 2012
This was our first visit to Marco Island. Using TripAdvisor and these reviews, we booked our stay at the Marco Beach Ocean Resort and I'm sure it won't be our last. The front desk staff was absolutely wonderful. The 9th floor room had a wonderful view of the ocean and pool and had a fully equipped kitchen. Valet parking was very convenient. The food at the Italian restaurant was delicious! I really couldn't get over how quite and relaxed I felt while visiting. I can't wait to go again!
Canton, Michigan • July 2012
"Absolutely exceeded our expectations!" I booked a room online in April for my husband and I to celebrate our 14th Wedding Anniversary in July. I selected this hotel based on the great reviews for service on TripAdvisor.com. I noted our special occasion in the comments area upon booking. To both our surprise, when we checked in for our one night stay, they upgraded our room to a suite with a top floor view! Not only that, sparkling wine was delivered to our room as a gift! The service was all that TripAdvisor.com reviews said it was...absolutely superb! Genuine, not overly solicitous. If we ran into any difficulty, it was immediately and courteously resolved. I would definitely recommend this hotel to any friends or family and would also look forward to a return visit. We would not hesitate to give it five stars!
Seattle, Washington • June 2012
My boyfriend and I booked two nights at this hotel for a quick vacation to relax. We absolutely loved everyone hotel worker we encountered. Everyone is just so delightful, the valet, the bartenders, the housekeeping. Sometimes its those little things that make a vacation so relaxing (housekeeping coming to clean our place twice during the day, even if we'd be gone for a few minutes, they're quick!) We will definitely be coming back to this resort when we get the chance. The happy hour was a plus, too! If you're looking to stay at a great hotel, chose the Marco Beach Ocean Resort. You won't regret it.
Huntley, Illinois • June 2012
“Fantastic experience for our 20th Anniversary”. The resort is beautiful, the property is beautiful, and the staff is even better. We can't say enough about our stay at MBOR. From the impeccably decorated lobby to the incredible white powder beach to the truly amazing food, this place went well beyond our expectations. The best part is the incredibly attentive staff that treated us like we were the only guests at the entire resort. The staff made our 20th wedding anniversary more memorable than we could have ever expected. We want to especially thank Cindy, Patti, Robert, and Oscar for taking such good care of us and offering many suggestions to make our trip so special. We have to thank the staff at the beach, most notably, Terron, Constantine, and Courtney, for their friendly and attentive service. Nathan was the best bartender you can ask for at a resort. Our sommelier was outstanding, as well as Chef Giuliano and his incredibly prepared cuisine. The food and staff at the restaurant is outstanding. We enjoyed every breakfast and our special anniversary dinner on the Terrace, along with amazing views of the gulf. We will most definitely be back to visit. We are so pleased with our choice to stay at MBOR...and we thank the staff again for making our stay so wonderful.
