It’s no secret that I love Marriott Vacation Club and the activities that they offer read like a phone book so why is it that I’ve been here at Marriott’s Newport Coast Villas for almost two days and I haven’t spent much time on the property? The answer is simple – they offer the best of both worlds. With endless on-site amenities, I could be here for a month and still not explore all of the possibilities but the off-site activities are equally plentiful. It’s a balancing act between spending time at one of the most beautiful resorts in the world and exploring the surroundings. Some of the best resorts are difficult to explore because they put the world at your finger tips. It’s like giving you Genie-like capabilities for the day. With all of those choices, how do you decide?
Normally at the end of my day, I like to write about everything that I experienced, keeping you in the loop as up-to-date as possible. Today, though, we saw the entire property via the free shuttle service, played in the games area, rode the complimentary shuttle to Beachcomber Cafe, had breakfast on the beach, went on a private Duffy Boat tour with Have Fun Tours, and we dined at Sabatino’s Restaurant. I’d be writing until tomorrow if I was going to share my day.
Tonight, you’ll need to settle for highlight photos and posts to follow soon.
If that doesn’t look like a full day, wait until you see what I have planned for tomorrow!
