Marco Island: Marriott Crystal Shores - Luxury Condo

Bedrooms 2
Space 1,270 sq ft
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 4 nights


About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom Apartments. Fantastic Marriott Category 9 Resort!

Marriott’s Crystal Shores on Marco Island is a full Marriott Resort - complete with all the features you would expect from such a property. The resort went through an expansion in 2015 through to late 2017 - and has been upgraded to a Marriott category 9 resort. This is currently the highest available ranking within Marriott.

There are swimming pools, a bar / restaurant pool table, BBQ's for cooking and much, much more.

Important: Please note that the Resort works similar to a hotel system - whereby the actual apartment is allocated near or upon arrival. This is a Gulf View apartment - and the allocation will be of this type. (i.e. NOT on the island side). Once your reservation is confirmed, you will have the apartment booked in your name - and the ability to request some additional options - including high / low floor, pillow types etc.

The resort has been undergoing upgrades - to the highest Category 9 status - and therefore the photos may not be representative of your actual room - or views available. (By this, I mean that the fixtures and fittings may now be BETTER than those shown!).

The resort is situated on three miles of pristine beaches, offering stylish residences within four luminous towers. Elegant swimming pools cascade towards the beach, providing guests a picturesque setting to relax and unwind.

Please note: I currently only have availability as per the calendar. Due to the high demand, I do not have any other availability.

Numerous on-site amenities and neighboring Naples entice visitors with plentiful shopping, upscale dining and a rich arts culture.

Comments from previous guests:

"Leaving tomorrow morning, this has been one exeptional great vacation here! I would like to thank you again for a fantastic oportunity to stay here. This has been so great i would have given you a big bear-hug if you were in town."

"This place is much nicer than the pictures you have out! When we walked in here we could not believe our eyes. It took me 8 hours to stumble upond the 2nd bathroom."

"Great time is an understatement. We had a spectacular time... The accommodations were amazing, and your assistance and coordination was greatly appreciated. This was our first a memorable one."

"I wanted to send you a thank you note for letting my family rent your timeshare. This place was amazing and Marco Island is beyond beautiful. We so enjoyed our week at Crystal Shores, we would love to go back again. Thank you so much for giving us this opportunity to have unforgettable vacation."

"We could not have had a more beautiful week - there was not a cloud in the sky the whole week. You could not get me out of that ocean!

Kids had a great time with all the activities. Beautiful island. Thank you. "

"Overall a beautiful vacation and if you rent this week out next year let me know, I will take it.

Thanks again"

About Michael Bray

I'm one of the original owners of Crystal Shores - and even have my own brick (with my name on it) by the grotto pool!

I'm un-retired from the IT industry - living in Norfolk in the UK.

Sue and I love Marco so much, that in October 2015, we fly from the UK to get married right on the beach at sunset. That's us in the pic!

Alas, we have a long bucket list of places to visit, so when we can't make it to Marco, we rent the apartments out - hopefully to someone just like you!

Michael Bray purchased this condo in 2009

Why Michael Bray chose Marco Island

This Marriott resort is one of their most sought after properties - and has recently been upgraded to a category 9 status (which is the top of the stack within Marriott).

It is important to understand that this is a full Marriott Resort - meaning you have many facilities and amenities that you won't find in many other condos or houses. The resort is beach front - meaning that you only have to walk across a short boardwalk to be on the beach.

There are various activities scheduled every day to keep you or the kids occupied as needed. A full list can be provided at check-in. We love the yoga class - on the beach at sunset.

There is also an on site restaurant and BBQ facilities for cooking your own steaks. None-the-less, if you would like to eat out, there are several restaurants in the shopping center right across the street.

Gulf View - Villa Amenities:

- Master suite with king-size bed, walk-in shower

- Open living and dining areas with elegant, comfortable furnishings

- Fully equipped kitchen featuring GE stainless-steel appliances

- Flat-screen televisions throughout, DVD player in living area

- Fully furnished private balconies and patios

- In-villa washer and dryer

- Complimentary Internet access

Resort Amenities**

- Stilts Beachside Bar & Grill*, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner from high above the dunes

- The MarketPlace Express: A quick stop for an assortment of essential snacks and sundry items. We Proudly Brew Starbucks coffee and more

- Lower Cascade Pool, a heated outdoor zero entry pool

- Grotto Pool, a heated outdoor feature pool with water slide

- Luxury poolside cabanas may be rented

- Fitness center

- Kid’s activity center

- Daily activities program for all ages

**Additional fees may apply to certain amenities.

What makes this condo unique

We love the great location of the resort - with the simply amazing views of sunsets, beaches and the Gulf.

Also, the resort offers so much for most types of travellers - be it family - or those seeking a more romantic time.

Many properties in Marco offer a waterfront location - but that often means the canals at the back! We offer beach front - right off the boardwalk. So, if you get stuck on choosing which pool to swim in, why not try the Gulf instead?

Guestbook comments from the manager

“What a spectacular place to bring our family to for a much needed break from NJ weather.. We had amazing weather and our Villa exceeded all of expectations! We knew it would be nice but the service of the hotel and all the amenities made it such a great experience.. My kids LOVED all of the outdoor activities (pool / large chess / ping pong) and two outdoor pools with an AWESOME slide!! We NEVER heard "were bored".. We really loved that our spectacular view of the gulf form our two balconies and how convenient everything was.. We walked across the street for dinner and were beach front so could go back and forth to the beach with ease.. We particularly enjoyed our morning walks along the gulf every morning.. Hands down, an incredible trip.. THANK YOU!”
