Beautiful holiday marred by sunbed police at end of stay

Worrall, United Kingdom

Loved this stay so much was planning to book the same weeks next year on our return home (separate review to follow on this). However this morning marked the enforcement of taking guests possessions/towels off sun beds if placed before 11am. We were told by the beach guards we were not even allowed to put ours on a bed for a few minutes and have our breakfast before coming back to them. On complaining at reception we were informed this is because guests coming down late morning want a seafront view. We like to get up early and stroll on the beach and have a swim / yoga class and do not expect our things to be moved when we return because some like to stay in bed until 11am especially as this is marketed as a wellness resort. Surely asking people not to place items until after 8am and stating things will be removed if guests gone for hours is a more reasonable compromise. Later today we moved to a spot poolside and a gentleman appeared with an even larger laminated poster to stick on the table next to each bed enforcing these rules. I am very sad to say that if I don’t see via watching others reviews over the next few months that this policy has been altered we won’t be back as I cannot relax things my belongings will be snatched off my lounger if I choose to have a swim before 11am!

Mariott has to think again

Sweden

We first stayed at Mariott in December 2018 and had an absolutely amazing holiday. Best hotel we had stayed at. Incredibly calm and nice. When we returned a year later, expectations were of course very high. But unfortunately they were not incorporated. When we arrived we heard an annoying "boom-boom-boom" and of course wondered what it was. It turned out to be the construction of Marriott's extension of villas. Mariott choosing to do this in high season is incomprehensible ?! Disturbing at the very least. How did Mariott reason ?! On the same day we arrived, many Indian guests arrived. Should guess 100-200. It turned out that there would be a wedding for THREE days. During those days, some of the hotel's facilities were not available to us other guests. Restaurants, pools, lawns ... To top it all, there was a pool party with a DJ screaming. It was very loud and disturbing. Of course, Mariott makes a lot of money at these weddings, but will they make a profit in the long run - when we ordinary guests choose other hotels to escape this chaos? Rhetorical. People have paid a lot of money for a relaxing stay. BEFORE WE BOOK NEXT TIME WE WILL GUARANTEED TO ENSURE THAT NO THREE-DAY WEDDING IS PLANNED. Mariott has to think about whether they want to be a fantastic hotel for everyone or a place to go for a three-day wedding, where other guests get to pay the price in the form of limited facilities and high-end pool parties
