Guam Marriott Resort and Spa Review

I spent most part of Holy Week in Guam with my family. We stayed at the Guam Marriott Hotel as recommended by our travel agent. I booked via though because it was less expensive there.

So anyway, check in time at the Guam Marriott is 3pm. We were greeted by a somewhat grand lobby and waiting area with high ceilings. If you stare out the windows you actually get a view of the ocean.

Guam MarriottYou can get yourself a welcome drink. The drink varies per day… when we got there it was coconut juice. The next day it was Four Seasons.

Guam MarriottWe got a Deluxe Ocean View Room that cost US$150 a night. It’s good for two adults according to but since we had two kids we just pushed the beds together.

Guam MarriottWe would never get tired of staring out the balcony, lol.

Guam MarriottGuam Marriott provides two (2) bottles of water upon check in. They are not replenished. It’s only upon check in. There’s a note that says additional bottles may be provided for a fee. I suggest you go to KMart to buy bottled water for the duration of your stay as two dozen bottles cost only US$6 from there.

Guam MarriottOur room also came with a coffee machine complete with Wolfgang Puck coffee pods!

Guam MarriottWe had a pretty spacious bathroom compared to most of the Asian hotels we’ve stayed in. Toothbrushes, soap, and basic toiletries (shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, lotion) are provided.

Guam MarriottBeing a resort, Guam Marriott had a pool area as well as a beach. We would swim here everyday and then head on over to the beach.

Guam MarriottAfter swimming, we were headed back to our hotel room. There was a table set up by the pool. Fresh coconut candy was cooking. It was soooo good. Fresh coconut juice and lemonade was available too. Everything was free of charge. 😀

Guam MarriottOne lunch time, we decided to try Guam Marriott’s lunch buffet. It cost US$18 per adult and US$9 per child. There was a lot of food available but I wasn’t able to take too many photos. Native Guam food is Chamorro cuisine and that consists mostly of barbecues. The buffet had the usual soups, salads, main dishes, and desserts. Filipino influence is all over as there was kwek-kwek, sinigang, leche flan, pichi-pichi, etc.

Guam MarriottThis is one of the more unique things I found at the Guam Marriott buffet — a curry station manned by an Indian chef no less. You can have your very own custom made curry dish here.

Overall we had a pleasant stay at the Guam Marriott Hotel, save for a few minor glitches like the room safe that wasn’t working (but then I didn’t complain about it) and the delayed check-in time (by 3pm only one room was available when I booked two, and the second room became available one hour later). The rooms are kind of old-ish but clean and decent so it was still okay. The location is great. It’s right on Pale San Vitores Road (considered the main strip in Guam) where most of the good hotels are. It’s quite near a lot of restaurants, DFS Galleria, Kmart, JP Superstore, and attractions like Guam Zoo and Underwater World.
