Marriott Villas at Doral A! OK! A review of Marriott's Villas at Doral
The Villas at Doral were beautiful. The two bedroom condo was spacious, well decorated equipped with a whirlpool tub in the master bedroom, and many other amenities. The balcony had a beautiful view and a table which allowed for dining inside and outside. The property is conveniently located 15 minutes from Miami Airport and 20 minutes outside of South Beach. There are a number of cheap eats and ethnic restaurants surrounding the property and a friendly staff willing to provide suggestions. The Doral Golf Resort across the street was open and accessible, however, most of the listed activities were unavailable. Also extremely expensive to golf. The villas has a sales center in the lobby and we listened to a time share presentation, however staff was not pushy. The only downfall: there is no room service, therefore if you just want rest and relaxation w/o cooking etc., this is not the place. Additionally, housekeeping neglected to clean our room even though they indicated we were on the list. In certain cases, (and we were not given a clear explanation), you have to call 24hours in advance for maid service. We were compensated with a $25 Amex gift certificate for the maid service oversight and all was well.
