The award-winning - - Marco Beach Ocean Resort, located along the Gulf of Mexico’s famous white-sand beaches, was recently honored with the AAA Four Diamond rating for the 16th consecutive year.
Known for its stunning Gulf views, intimate environment and personalized service, the 103-room, all-suite beachfront boutique resort is among only 5.9 percent of more than 27,000 of AAA’s approved hotels receiving a AAA Four Diamond rating. The resort was first recognized with the AAA rating – one of the global hospitality industry’s highest honors – in 2003.
Marco Beach Ocean Resort earned the Four Diamond distinction on the merit of its upscale physical attributes, extensive amenities, refinement and style, and high degree of hospitality, service and attention to detail.
“Earning the AAA Four Diamond rating is an affirmation of our efforts to go above and beyond for our guests each and every day,” said Ron Albeit, Marco Beach Ocean Resort general manager.
The AAA Diamond-rated designation is among the most well-known and respected distinctions in the global travel industry. It is the only system using full-time professionally trained inspectors to conduct anonymous in-person evaluations to provide AAA’s 58 million members with relevant and accurate information about accommodations and restaurants.
Each of Marco Beach Ocean Resort’s one- and two-bedroom luxury suites offers a kitchenette, spacious living room and private balcony overlooking the Gulf of Mexico or lush garden terraces.
Additionally, the resort features a variety of dining options ranging from beachfront casual to authentic Italian cuisine at the elegant, award-winning Sale e Pepe restaurant, which has been recognized with its own AAA Four Diamond rating for 13 consecutive years. The resort also offers a spa and fitness center, swimming pool, rooftop garden, and direct access to four miles of the island’s famed sugar-sand beaches.
