... The captain is being super-cautious with the passengers, particularly where climbing feet have polished the limestone, but it is not a difficult climb. Up the top there are caves which blow in high seas, and you can see the sea below through them. Again, extreme caution is observed around the un-protected voids. Looking out to sea and back to the mainland, the full range of blue and green water is on display, making for some great photos.
We have ...

I took the Hoppa a tad early and ended up having to wait to check in my cases. Got a bit bored so I decided on an upgrade to Premium Economy and offset the cost of taking an extra case from the charge.
Now in 14J with an aisle seat. Let’s hope the TV works OK.
As you know I am an observer of life on these solitary journeys I make and today I saw one of the strangest sights ...
... diet was not up to the challenge. No fancy pastries or special sauces or fresh breads for Gretchen. She was served cheap frozen bread, blueberry muffins, and oreo type cookies that they had been picked up from a local grocery store, and even then she didn’t get to have a variety. It’s easy enough now a days to pick up mix for gluten free cookies, breads, pizzas, etc. But Holland America obviously ...
... the menu that sounded good, but I ended up with the Grilled Cheese Sandwich which is served on a thick sliced multigrain bread with white cheddar and tomato. The side was a slaw (non mayo based) that tasted like it had cilantro in it. I also had the Banana Heaven for dessert which is banana bread with caramelized bananas, rum sauce and vanilla ice cream. It was fairly rich and I couldn’t finish it.
After lunch I biked to West Martello Tower which is a garden ...
2 Aug, Awoke early to see the pilot coming on board at 4am. We were docked in Fort Lauderdale by 4-40am,& had breakfast at 6-45. The full ships company(every passenger & crew member) had to go thru American immigration so there were long queues. We finally got on our tour bus at 9am, and drove down Las Olas Blvd but it was a bit early for the shops to be open so the girls were not happy. But we did see some lovely beaches ,houses and ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Delray Beach Marriott
Went to Florida for the first time this January and stayed a week at the Delray Beach Marriott. The location was great both for the numerous walks on the beach in the morning, but for the short strolls down Atlantic to the great resturants. This place is perfect to stay at if you don't want to be tied to the car all day & like the slower pace of traditional Florida.
I just came back from a one night stay at the Delray Beach Marriott. I booked a partial oceanview room with rate code BXR. This rate code is supposed to include a free movie rental, free breakfast buffet for 2, free valet parking and 2 free cappucinos. When I checked in at the front desk, the clerk handed me my key with a comment of " Room XXX, partial oceanview, just as you requested". When I inquired about the rate code that I booked with, he had no clue what I was talking about. The rate was correct, but he knew nothing about any of the "extras" and assured me that everything would be settled in the morning. He indicated that he had no way of finding out what was included in this rate code. I wasn't too pleased.
Awesome view and super surroundings!
It started as all vacations do with the long journey to get there. From our expectations we thought that the lobby was going to have that 'tropical feel' to it as all beachside hotels try to pull off. Boy were we wrong! The lobby was magnificiant! right out of a glamour hotel catalog, huge chandelers over stuffed furniture and even a grand fireplace in the lounge. All this right on the beach. One thing the hotels information does not hightlite but it should, is its location on a major boutique main street called Atlantic Ave. it has great shops to poke in and a ton of restaurants to go see, ( not that the hotels restaurant cannot match any that we went to in our 4 day stay). It's truely an awesome place to go.
We found this to be a beautiful hotel. The bed was the most comfortable one we have ever slept in, the view was spectacular, and the breakfast buffet was scrumptious. This was by far and away one of the nicest hotels we have ever stayed in - we thoroughly enjoyed our visit.
Pricey but Enjoyable
Stayed at this Marriott earlier this year. Beautiful hotel with a mediterranean look. Great location across from beach and on corner of Atlantic Ave (which is where the action is). Spacious lobby, room had a nice view of pool and side view of ocean (though not the ocean view we desired)
Front desk was polite. Concierge seemed a bit formal
The pool is quite nice but crowded; marble columns turn into fountains from time to time, pouring into the pool which adds to the kids' fun. Great breakfast buffet though not cheap.
Room was definitely pricey but stay was fun.
Nice Hotel, Great Location, Crowded Pool
Stayed Memorial Day Weekend.
Pros: Found the staff very helpful and accomodating. Great location - across from the beach and a short walk from tons of shops and restaurants. Room was spacious - had a junior suite. Breakfast was good but a little pricey. Pool bar was nice.
Cons: Pool was extremely crowded and if you don't get out early you won't have a chair was our experience. It may have been partly due to Memorial day but there were a number of individuals at the pool who weren't guests. The pool is accessible to individuals who aren't staying at the hotel. Drinks were a little pricey.
Overall I would definitely recommend if you can get a good rate.
We stayed at this hotel for a couple of nights before boarding a cruise and we enjoyed our stay very much. Its located at the end of a strip filled with restaurants and cute little shops. Its also right across the street from the beach, which is breathtaking on the right day. The hotel itself was very nice. The only 2 drawbacks I can think of are that the AC was probably older than I am, and was causing water damage on the wall. Also, everytime the people upstairs from us opened their patio door, it sounded like thunder in our room. But the pool was great, and the staff was extremely accomodating out there. Someone was by every 10 minutes or so to check on our drinks and see if we needed towels, food, etc... One suggestion, get breakfast elsewhere! The breakfast buffet (although tasty) was like $18 a person or something. A little too pricey in my opinon. Comfortable bed, strong water pressure in the shower, very quiet rooms.
Thumbs up! People need to remember this is a hotel!
I went there for 2 days in Feb. with 2 kids and I must say I was pleasently suprised. The two negative ratings seem to be an exception to what I experienced. People have to remember this is a hotel AND NOT a resort. Although it has resort like qualities it is an above average Hotel. It is new and nice to look at as it is on Atlantic Ave. and also on the beach!I rented a junior oceanfront suite which was great as it had a separate are for the kids to sleep and watch TV.Its was furnished very nice and the bathroom was clean,roomy and had nice little touches.The pool was nice,the outside bar was nice and the rest. was great. Look, if you want to be in Delray this is the top.If you want a resort then you will need to leave Delray and go to Palm Beach.
The lobby and the view of the beach is very welcoming. The staff was professional but not very helpful - we felt very anonymous, especially after we checked in, and we were not given the room we requested. The room was a big dissapointment and not at all worth the money. We moved to another hotel and had a much better time.
