Historical Traveler Reviews Harbor Beach Marriott Resort & Spa Fort Lauderdale
My husband and I just returned from a weekend at the resort. The staff is attentive and friendly, the food was good and the facilities are great! We spent the day a the spa and had relaxing spa treatments. An added perk with the spa is the private pool for spa guests. No kids and a laid back atmosphere. The other large pool is loud and loaded with families. I don't get many weekends away from my 3 kids, so I craved the quiet! My only gripe was the location of my room. I booked with expedia a vacation deal and was not able to specify what type of room I wanted. We got room 374, which is located above the front doors and valet area. It is very loud with guests coming and going. The parking attendents were making noise all night long. My few nights to get a solid night of sleep were ruined by waking up to cars beeping all night long. I tried to change rooms the next morning, but to no avail. :( I would stay there again, but next time, make sure my room is ocean front!
I spent three days at the Harbor Beach and it was absolutely wonderful!! The rooms, grounds, pool, restaurants, etc. are all wonderful. I also treated myself to a day at the on-site spa and it was spectacular!! I would definitely recommend this hotel to everyone, but be sure to bring a lot of cash because it is expensive.
A had the pleaseure to stay here July13-19 for a FBI Fingerprint Course. The hotel is the best I've stayed at so far. The beach is directly behind the hotel and the airport is about 4-5 miles away actually I could see the planes leaving from my balcony. The food is excellent and the room service is great. There's many activities to do for a family throughout the day. The ratio from staff to guest is the best there's always someone asking if everything's ok. The only thing was that the hotel had a little fire in the lobby early one morning around 6:45am other than that It was a great experience staying there and will be returning back in Nov.
A Great Place to Stay
My wife and I took our 2 children (ages 9 & 11) for 4 days last week.
It was a great experience. The staff was extremely curtious and helpful. The grounds were beautiful and well kept. I would advise anyone looking for a peaceful setting, to stay at this resort.
This is one of the classiest hotels/resorts I have had the pleasure of visiting. This place must have the highest ratio of employees to guests in the hotel industry, and not one of them was the least bit rude.
Watch out for the fees!!
I booked online, and was shocked to find out some of the fees associated with the property. I know this is upscale, but if you are not loaded, don't even bother going!!
Went last week with my family which includes a 6 year old and a 5 month old..I stayed in a suite at 589/night..This is a beautiul resort with a great pool..Layout was perfect..All activities were at your feet..Rest...3030 was very good. I had a problem with another guest taking our pool chairs and the hotel mgr..gave us a dinner for 4 which turned out to be 250.00..Here are my suggestions..Game room for kids is poor..its too small...Room service is below avg.for their food and their service..Rest at pool needs better service..Alive band at the pool woulsd have been nice..The suite was nice but it was not original..It had been 3 rooms put together ..It needed more dresser space...Mini bar was not working....Look if your looking for an above avg. resort this is it...BUT its not ,at this juncture,at the same quality as a Westin or a Hyatt
Marriott Harbour Beach Great Place to Stay!!
Spent four days at the Harbour Beach Marriott with our family and enjoyed every minute of it. Pool and beach area are beautiful and very clean. Very nice rooms and although did not have an oceanview even the city view was good. Breakfast buffet was excellent, and although it was $14 for an adult it was only $5 for a child. Only downfalls were the $16 a day parking fee and drinks were quite expensive. I will definetly be returning to this hotel.
If you want a fantastic value, fantastic food and fantastic service then have a few meals at the Marriott Harbor Beach Resort. A recent dinner in the resorts casually elegant main dining room started with a complex house salad that included lovely marinated vegetables, shaved carrots and beets, and the freshest mesclun greens topped with a tangy, sweet,pinkish vinigarette dressing. An assortment of flavored breads with pesto dipping sauce and butter was presented. The main course was a thick, juicy, New York strip steak cooked to the perfect internal temperature with subtley flavored horseradish mashed potatoes. The baby vegetables were the freshest I've ever tasted and were cooked to euphoric perfection!! Dessert was a simple, hearty slice of apple pie presented on a large plate drizzled with raspberry coulis and a vanilla sauce. The drinks were substantial, the coffee strong, and was poured nonstop, and the service was friendly, personal, and prompt. In addition to all of this, the price was very reasonable. I enjoyed this exact experience 2 days in a row...thats how enjoyable it was!
Great place to relax!
My boyfriend and I went over labor day and although it was busy with many families, we had a very pleasant stay. We avoided the pool where most of the families would go and headed straight for the beach which was never too crowded and no one on top of each other! Service, atmosphere and location were great. Food was very good. When you want to get off the resort, cabs are right there to take you. Definately a great getaway!
