"Excellent family vacation"
We travelled during mid May as a family of four including our twin 3 year old boys. Our package included round airport transfer and breakfast at the Waterfront restaurant. I am also a Marriott Gold. A week before the arrival, I got an email from the Guest Relations Manager to fill up a preferences form. Although most of it was already keyed in while making the reservation online at Marriott.com, this was a nice touch. The pickup was done in a Toyota Innova without any hassle. We had originally booked a standard bay view room. We were eventually upgraded to a bay view suite which was a splendid gesture. Although, I must say here that initially we had to ask more than once at the reception for this upgrade. But, I do understand that since we arrived early at around 9 am, well before the normal check-in time, it took a while for the reception staff (mostly filled with junior executives then) to take stock of the situation. We twice went out to "see a room" but were stopped midway before reaching. To buy time, we then headed for breakfast at the Waterfront, which was offered to us complimentary as an elite member. Once we returned, the reception had sorted it out and we were escorted to our bay view suite. These suites are on the northern end of the resort, with balconies (except on ground floor), and in my opinion this was the best part of the resort. The suite was very spacious with nice sit-outs at the balconies. The main bedroom was typical Marriott and of very high quality including the superb bed. The main bathroom had a bathtub and a separate shower enclosure. The toiletries were by Thann. The living room had 3+1 sofa and a round dining table. However, the main sofa which could also be converted to a bed showed its age and was not that comfortable. There was a small microwave but not much beyond in the kitchenette. The mini bar had absolutely nothing stocked, which we found surprising. There were two TV sets but none had HD channels. Overall, except for the living room which was of so-so quality, everything else was as expected and super functional. I think, whatever a few minuses the resort had with its hard product (i.e. the room) were more than compensated by its staff elsewhere. At the Waterfront, I must mention of chef Pavan and chef Ashwin who were excellent in catering to our daily requests and offered super suggestions and Delana who took great care of our kids. At the lobby lounge (Azure) where we had complimentary access, it was Akash who made sure every evening we had the right drinks and our kids had their choice of food. The food at Azure, especially the evening spread in particular, was the best part of our stay. Our kids enjoyed the kids room, which was very nicely stocked. They also provided with toys to play in the sand (there was a smallish semi-private beach in front of the hotel). The pool was excellent. The room service was superb, especially the housekeeping staff who used to do all those super towel arts that kept our kids entertained. There was a party by a multinational company on the lawn just in front of our suite during the last night of our stay. Although, we were a bit apprehensive when they announced it, the whole thing was taken care off nicely and didn't bother us much at the end. Finally, I must say that this resort deserves all it's star ratings if for nothing but for its superb staff. It's a great family vacation destination. We can't wait to plan our next trip.

Visited this property for asian paint function last friday, totally impressed with the hotel up keep, But only dissappointment I had was that Railway mutton which they served on that night was not up to the hotel mark and their 3 rd block staff elevator was in horrible state which I entered accidently.
"Excellent Service and Hospitality"
Lovely place with eloquent staff. It was a wonderful stay with "feel at home" hospitality provided 24x7. Special thanks to Mr. Vinod Kumar (Front Office Manager) for his warm and sincere hospitality. We look forward to many more trips to Marriott.
"A Home Away From Home"
“Hospitality” is not only about the Visual or Culinary Pleasantness, it is also about helping Hearts Connect. This is exactly what happened during my stay at this Beautiful Resort. The moment my Mom and I stepped in, we were greeted by a very Warm and Affectionate Lady – Ms.Elizabeth who truly turned out to be our Guardian Angel. She along with Sahil made sure our Check-In was Smooth and Quick. My Mom joins me in expressing our Heartfelt Gratitude to her for making our stay so Comfortable. The Chefs, Host, Hostess and all the Servers at Waterfront Restaurant were very Courteous and Friendly. Chef Ashwin even went to the extent of serving us a Prawn Dish which was not part of the Dinner Buffet. A Special Thanks to Delina, Joseph and others for taking care of us during Breakfast Buffet. Thank You Dev, Our Conceirge Man, for taking care of our travelling needs. Last but not the least, the personnel who actually do the work for us when we are not looking, the HouseKeeping!!! A special thanks to Mohini and Vithal for always keeping our room Neat and Tidy, replenishing the essential items and for the wonderful Towel Artwork, such a delight to see. Looking forward to my next visit and meeting you all in the near future. Stay Blessed!!!
