Beautiful resort, amazing staff! The staff at Sedona Grill and Beachwalk are outstanding but the front desk needs NEW management. We have been coming here twice a year since this resort opened in 2001. Hidalgo, Manuela, Gilberto at the pool Beachwalk are outstanding! At Sedona Grill Pedro, Sergio, Angel, and Victor are some of the best servers that I have ever had. The property is absolutely beautiful but the front desk management has to change. Miguel Flores (GM) does not even acknowledge people that are frequent visitors to the property and does nothing to try to accommodate them. I was here with my mom (lifetime Titanium), my sister (also Titanium status and just became lifetime Gold) and I am also Titanium. We were put into a room that was not what we paid for, and never offered the amenities that come with the resort fee. We were asked if we wanted the Tatanium amenity (wine, cheese & crackers) and they never sent it to the room. It is Marriotts policy that when they fail to do this you get a $200 credit. Every area of the staff from the Bellman (Christopher & Javier are amazing) to the Housekeeping crew go above and beyond. The front desk really needs to be addressed. I highly recommend this resort, especially for families, but the front desk is a problem.

Everything there is just about perfect. Food, ambiance, and best of all beautiful views. totally worth the extra money to upgrade to a suite. The food and drinks eat the pool palapa are excellent, as is the service. One of the servers even remembered our name! So kind and attentive. The pool is very pretty. We want to go back next year. Just a great experience.

My huband and I only stayed here for one night to try a non all inclusive experience, however, we paid extra for Club lounge access. This was the best decision ever, as the 2 meals we had outside the club lounge were not good and very expensive. Club lounge service was AMAZING! My respects to Ludin for always having such a great attitude and going above and beyond in service. The beach seems small and it was difficult to find available chairs, we only could enjoy 2 hours of beach. We got the room next to the club lounge and it was basic but the view was GREAT! We also like the singer in the evening.

We were supposed to go to St. Kitts, but had problems with them approving our covid tests in time, so this morning we decided to book Cancun. We chose JW Marriott since the pool loungers all have thick cushions. We’ve been here for 2 hours and it’s been pretty painful. We have Marriott Gold, which means nothing here . We requested a king room. The girl who checked us in guaranteed a premium King room. We get to the room w all our luggage and it ends up being 2 doubles. We go back down and they are out of King rooms unless we want to pay an extra $300. Room is super basic. No ocean front hot tub, rose petals and towel animals like other resorts. We’re here for 4 nights and just tried to go book cabanas for the week and they’re all booked for the next 5 days. Beach loungers don’t have cushions. So far, pretty unimpressed. View is awesome though!

We stayed at the JW Marriott over Christmas. There were 11 of us in three rooms. We can't say enough good things about the staff at the resort. Manuel, Jorge, Abiel (all staff by the pool) and Israel (front door) were all incredible. Without them I am not sure our stay would have been as good as it was. These employees were personable, helpful and engaging. And, they were efficient and amazing at their jobs! The hotel is lovely and the rooms all have amazing views. Our one complaint would be that the pool area gets completely shaded early in the day. When you arrive, scout out the sunniest seats in the mid afternoon and reserve those early! We hope to go back again soon!!
