W is situated in beautiful palm with spectacular view. We love the ambiance of the hotel, and all staff are friendly and helpful. The pool is amazing with temperature control. We enjoyed our one week stay. The resort very conveniently close to Atlantis for water activities. Location wise is away from the busy area, so very relax and calm. After visiting many Marriot property worldwide, I personally found the room was slight small compared to other W hotel. The hotel doesnt recognise ambassador elite ( which was the sad part).

Stayed 3 nights and the stay was considering I’ve stayed in a lot of w hotels probably the worst I’ve ever had . Liv restaurant food , found hair and raw food being served , lots of nameplates of food but simply no food , very small selection of items for children or adults bare minimum standard hotel food of a 3 star , and fruit flies on the cold food . Room , do not stay in any of the 10– or floors above as you’ll have the best view of a building site and diggers , they said all rooms full so weren’t able to move us . But on the balcony that you can’t use due to the dust only about 5 rooms on that side were being used so clearly an overflow rooms that keep you up all night and you can’t use the balcony or open the doors due to noise and dust New years ever they tried to upsell extra dinner packages that offered when I went and looked poor small shows and no views of the fireworks , We went to the beach and had the best view of the celebrations . Don’t buy the packages ! They overcharge to look at everyone else’s fireworks lol Staff were brilliant have to say in every department . Would never return to this hotel worst W hotel in the whole group
