pre-cruise hotel recommendation


Recommended Posts

Can anyone recommend a hotel for a pre-cruise stay? It doesn't have to be that fancy for a one or two night stay - no Hyatt REgency, but something nice, clean and with good service. Thanks!

Try the Renaissance downtown. You'll be in the shopping district and have boat access to a private island. There's also a casino in the lobby. Go to: marriott.com to check rates. You want the "marina" tower not the "beach" tower as it's closer to the action.
If you want Palm Beach then try the Radisson which is more expensive but not quite as much as the Hyatt.

Wyndam is also very nice and sometimes offers specials. Stayed at the Rennaisance (was called Sonesta then) and it was OK.. was noisy and no beach ... had to take a boat ride to their beach, which was in the pathway of incoming flights.

Have you stayed there? How were the rooms at the Holiday Inn? Both it and the Best Western Manchebo Beach are fairly inexpensive but are they dumpy or decent?

Many years ago, on two different occasions, we spent a night at the Holiday Inn. The first time our room was not nice, the second time it was fine. They probably have renovated since then. You can ask. The beach is very nice and it is right next to the Playa Linda, a timeshare. If you go to the Playa Linda website, you may even find someone willing to rent their appartment at the time you need it.We spent many vacations there with our children and it was great. I wouldn't choose the Manchebo Beach. Actually, I have never seen it, but we always liked Palm Beach and I think it is a better area. Hope you enjoy!
