Hi. What is the difference between the original and the Marina Resort? I see that the Marina is more expensive. Thank you!
The main difference is that the Marina resort is on the water & many of the rooms have water views. Also, the Marina has a nice tiki hut on the water, to enjoy the water views. The original doesn't have the views. Of course, if one stayed at the original, they could always walk across the street.
Hi. I had this same question and I chose the Marina because the guest rating for it on most sites was higher than the original. I think that both the original and the Marina are essentially part of the same company, but from what I saw the layout of the Marina and the pool area looked slightly nicer than the original. Also, the reception is actually in the Marina resort. I'd definitely recommend the Marina resort, even if it is slightly more expensive as my wife and I had such a good time there. We enjoyed breakfast and drinks in the Marina overlooking the water.
