The Ritzy Palm Beach Marriott Singer Island
Palm Beach is one of, if not the, wealthiest communities in Florida. Sitting on Florida’s East coast/Atlantic Ocean, Palm Beach is a place of indulgence and pampering. Luxury accommodations are plentiful, and my preference is the Palm Beach Marriott Singer Island Beach Resort & Spa, steps away from the beach.
This Marriott is stylish, chic, and offers a warm welcome to those who enter their doors. A delicious smell cleverly piped in, warms your nostrils and follows with you throughout the whole first floor. The aromas along with the beautiful furniture and decor and sheer beauty of the resort are enchanting.
Our Stay at the Palm Beach Marriott
Upon check-in, the Marriott’s friendly staff greeted my husband Eddie and I. It only required about two minutes of our time before providing they handed us the room keys and property guide for the Palm Beach Marriott. Our enormous 750 square feet room (on the 5th floor) faced the beautiful Intracoastal Waterway.
A cool thing about the Palm Beach Marriott is that all of the rooms are considered condominium style suites. Ours had a fully-equipped kitchen with stainless steel appliances. The large living room was complete with a state-of-the-art 42″ flat-screen TV and Bose electronics (radio, CD, and stereo plus iPod dock). We also had an enormous bedroom and bath, plus a small balcony with two comfortable chairs for enjoying the pool views beneath us. Washers and dryers were in each unit.
Our bedroom was fashioned in white linens and matching duvet with dark jewel tone pillows to accent. The marble bathroom had a deep soaking tub and separate glass-enclosed shower stall. Both the bedroom and living room windows were all floor to ceiling. A second TV was in the bedroom, as well.
Tasteful Decor and Upscale Furnishings
The living room consisted of lovely fabrics on both the chair and sofa while it also featured a writing desk and spacious bar with barstools. A stocked refrigerator held typical mini-bar offerings such as bottled water, juice, soda, and liquor. It was hard not to dive into all of the mini-bar snacks, such as cashews and Toblerone, nestled in the corner of the kitchen.
Though Eddie and I were only there for one night, I would gladly stayed at the Palm Bech Marriott Singer Island a week or longer without even leaving the property. How fun would it have been to cook in that savvy kitchen?
A Family Favorite Destination
The Palm Beach Marriott Singer Island is a family favorite vacation destination, which was obvious by the overload of families there to enjoy all of the wonderful offerings the hotel had. From the kids club to daily activities for all resort guests (may include a participation fee), spa services to water activities, there is something for every guest.
I visited the Kids Camp where a friendly worker showed me some of the crafts and projects the children would be constructing that day. The Kids Camp provides movies, games, and fun activities for the kids to have their own special vacation while their parents relax. Some of the events were treasure hunts with metal detectors on the beach and hula-hooping.
The Palm Beach Marriott houses both a Grotto-style lagoon pool and an infinity pool. Guests and families were enjoying the likes of both of them. Cabanas are available for rent for those seeking some privacy. A hot tub faced the ocean at one of the pools, while the other had an enormous water slide. An onsite restaurant and bar offered guests at the pool and on the beach food and drinks throughout the day.
Palate Pleasing Dining Experiences
When it comes to dining, the Palm Beach Marriott Singer Island has options such as 3800 Ocean (their premier restaurant), the Lagoon Cantina, Reef Tiki Bar, and a small store/coffee bar in the lobby that offers grab-and-go foods. Though the gift shop only had a small number of items on display, they were at least quality souvenirs.
Breakfast options at the full-service restaurant were affordable, especially considering how upscale the hotel is. The coffee bar also sold a bounty of items that will not break the bank. To start the day off right, the Marriott breakfast buffet is available. I always love the hotel chain’s food, so this is a splurge that we typically make.
Eddie and I dined outdoors at 3800 Ocean and sampled their brand new menu. We started our evening with a Mango Margarita and Pinà Colada. The drinks were pricey but perfectly prepared.
We shared the Tomato/Shrimp Bruschetta, and I had a Wedge Salad. The salad was incredible, with a tasty blue cheese dressing, and big enough to share.
For our entrées, Eddie went with a Chicken Caesar Salad, and I had the Shrimp Pasta. Everything was plated beautifully, tasted delicious, and left us stuffed at the end of our meal. I was even able to take half of my pasta dish home for leftovers.
Touring the Marriott Property
I toured the Marriott property with Stacy Lee, Director of Sales & Marketing, who answered questions for me and showcased the property remarkably well. We walked down to the private beach where a tiki-style hut served as the water activities sign-up location and sundries store. The sand on the beach felt super soft and the beach views were excellent.
Something unique about the location of the Palm Beach Marriott is that it sits on a reef, perfect for snorkeling or scuba diving. Do not sweat it if you forgot the kid’s beach toys, swimsuits, or sunscreen as the Marriott’s gift and beach shops have everything you need.
A place to not miss is the outdoor patio with fire pits for chilly nights and big comfy oversized chairs. It is the perfect place to sit and enjoy social time with friends or that special someone. I found the area to be excellent for both relaxing and photographs.
The Palm Beach Marriott Singer Island is an exceptional place to stay and enjoy luxury accommodations, stellar ocean views, and a host of amenities. This is one splurge that will surely be justified.
FYI: Palm Beach is part of Florida’s Gold Coast. It is the Atlantic coast of South Florida including West Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale, and Miami.
FYI: Keep in mind that the Marriott is an ideal location for meetings and weddings. They have their fair share of weddings, and after walking around the entire property, I can see why so many people would choose it. It is a photographers dream location!
Thanks to the Marriott for hosting my visit. As always, reviews and opinions are 100% mine and unbiased.
