People are feeding me again. I love it! The couple across the way, from Delaware; she loves to cook and he loves to eat. They shared pancakes with me one morning, hot off the griddle. Another day it was homemade pineapple upside down cake, served warm. One of my favorites! There was a severe weather warning and tornado watch on Thurs. It was really scary. I spent the worst of the storm with the people across the way in their 5th ...

New paths to explore by foot and by bike. Our morning walk was a little slower than usual. Willow thought we were out fot a smell rather than a walk. The morning is sunny and warm. No traffic in park. Could wander at my leisure. The camp site s are deep and wide so it was easy to back in the MH. Neighbors invited me ffor glass of wine. Full hookup s. Clean bathroom s. What more can any retiree want? Long day ...

The Refit Begins

... in a cored boat. The source needs to be located (usually a screw or fitting that needs to be re-bedded) and fixed. If it's really wet a repair should be made to the area. We've got two areas that are wet enough to warrant repair. We also want some other areas refinished that may lead to future problems if not taken care of. The fiberglass guys are looking at the job Monday and providing quotes.

All during the evening of gale-force winds, we wondered if last night's deluge had been a vestige of your northern blizzards. No consolation, of course, but we did feel some kinship with your experiences of last week. Hope all is returning to normal. PS: Dayton -- Understand you had some more white stuff overnight. All over for ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Marriott's Ocean Pointe Palm Beach Shores

    Great vacation!

    from

    This is a beautiful resort! The pools are great, and the hot tub is nice. The grounds are very lush and the food and drinks at the tiki hut are really good. Good restaurants are Sailfish Marina, the Crab Pot - great fried shrimp. The City Place Mall is really impressive and looks like an Italian village. Legal Seafoods there was great. SInger island is a really nice place to vacation.

    Nice Vacation

    from

    My boyfriend and I spent a week at Ocean Pointe in May. We had an efficiency unit which was very nice and clean with a microwave and a small 'fridge. It looked recently built or remodeled.

    We spent our time at the "quiet" pool. The cabanas at the pool are on a first come, first serve basis. They were usually all taken by the time we made it down to the pool at 11am or 12pm but one would open up around 3pm. The pool was nice and large with two two hour periods for adult swim.

    The beach was okay. The water was pretty rough so we didn't go in much.

    We had a great dinner at Ruth's Chris Steak house and a couple of really good meals at Bruzzi's in West Palm Beach at the City Center. Also, the Muvico Parisian movie theatre there was great!

    I'd go back again.

    Lovely Resort . BEWARE of the cabana rental outfit there....

    from

    Our experience was as follows; We requested a high floor six months before check in and were only given a 3rd floor 2 bed/2 bath suite after complaining to management and Marriott customer service. Check in was supposed to be @ 4PM. We arrived @ 3:15 and did not get our room until 4:30. The rooms were very clean and well decorated. The resort grounds are beautiful and the staff a mix of courteous and disinterested. The beach is not as nice as some of the other Florida locales but it was ok. BEWARE of the folks that run the cabana. My experience was one reminscent of dealing with vendors on a street corner in a third world country. I was quoted a price of $25 per day since I was paying for multiple days. I was actually charged $35/day(30% tax??). I was told a refund is given for days the cabana was not used. It rained one day all day and was not given my money back. I also paid cash and was charged twice on my room bill. You can also get toys and boogi boards for the kids for free from the hotel, but they charge at the beach. A guest told me so as I was paying my $15 for a boogi board rental. The kid that helped me stated his was free as well as he took my $15. Also, be ready to drive fairly long distances to get anywhere. Not much around the resort (i.e. miniature golf, shopping, etc.)

    Nicest Resort on Singer Island, but...

    from

    We stayed at Marriott's Ocean Pointe for five nights during the last week of February. Ocean Pointe is comprised of four seven storey buildings (with a fifth tower under construction) directly on a nice wide stretch of beach at the southern end of Singer Island. The property (a Marriott Vacation Club time share) is well kept with a lush, tropical pool area. Our two bedroom unit (one bedroom plus adjacent studio) was spacious and nicely furnished with a fully equipped kitchen (including a washer/dryer.)

    Be careful here...

    from

    stayed here several times in the last year - great rooms, adult only whirlpool, nice grounds. BUT unless you are a timeshare customer you get a lower floor room, very late checkin (after 3 - enforced) and early checkout (11). we requested higher floors etc. months in advance and were assigned a first floor room right over the children's play area. many complaints about the beach staff from us and others the week we stayed. they double sold the cabanas once you left - (we returned and were told that once we left they could sell it again... and this was after we tipped the guy $10!) Overall - it was nice but it felt like we had to fight every day for a cabana (even though we paid for the week) and we felt we were treated poorly because we were not timeshare people.

    Can't wait to go back!

    from

    We've been to Ocean Pointe twice and can't wait to return--plan to make it an annual tradition, with or without the kids. Even with them, my husband and I thought we were honeymooning--got spoiled rotten, and left the kids with the activities directors and never worried about them because the resort is very secure. The grounds are gorgeous, the entertainment and activities are always interesting, the villas are so homey, and the areas is fantastic. We loved the free marine museum nearby, the nature trails, the great restaurants, the spectacular beach, the incredible sunrises and sunsets we enjoyed from our balcony.

    Couldn't ask for a more relaxing and worry-free getaway, and no one has friendlier staff; several employees have become friends we look forward to seeing again.

    Most relaxing vacation with kids

    from

    Our stay at the Ocean Pointe was probably the most relaxing vacation we have ever taken with kids. We stayed in a 2 bedroom 2 bath with full kitchen--it was great. They do not have room service but they have a small marketplace next to the pool that you can get sandwiches and pre made salads, snacks, drinks and other necessities. We ordered carry out and ate out other nights. The rooms were gorgeous and practical, our room had a mud room with a washer and dryer as you entered the condo-style room. A TV in each bedroom and the living room. For adults there was a huge/ beautiful master suite with a jacuzzi. The hotel has planned activities for the kids (ie: hair brading, root-beer float making, star fish painting) for a very nominal price. We enjoyed hanging out at the beach and swimming in the beautiful pools with the kids, listening to live regaee music. All you would need to pack is a swimsuit and shorts for this place!!

    Wonderful beach vacation

    from

    We vacationed here the week of Christmas 2003 and had a wonderful time.

    Everything is arranged for you to have a really nice beach vacation - oceanfront, pool bar, beach rentals, sea shells, etc. Take a good novel and relax or do as many activities (parasailing, fishing, etc.) as you wish. I would return in a minute.

    Awesome resort!

    from

    My husband and I stayed at Ocean Pointe in July 2003. The resort was beautiful and the grounds were immaculate and well kept. The buildings are designed so that no matter if your room is in the front of the hotel (by the beach) or near the back, everyone has an ocean view.

    Relaxing time

    from

    Came here for girl's weekend away. Clean resort with friendly staff. We noticed immediately that this resort would be great for families. Lots of things for the kids to do. But there is an adults only pool. Not a place to come if you are looking for night life but very nice if you just want to get away and enjoy the pool and beach. The pictures of the resort are pretty much what you get. We stayed in a 1 bedroom with mini kitchenette. Plenty big enough for 2. We didn't rent a car but found several resturants within walking distance. Also you can take the water taxi to "city place" where there are upclass shops and movie theater.
