Trip Report Mini Trip Report--Grand Hotel Marriott Point Clear & Fairhope, Al

Jump to last reply

Just wanted to post a quick note about our weekend at this wonderful resort, since there aren't that many posts on this board about it.

This was an impromptu weekend. DH and I needed relaxation, a great pool, spa treatments for me, and nice surroundings. We got all at this impressive resort, which according to the brochure, opened in 1847. From what I understand, it has not been a Marriott very long. In all honesty, it is more like a Ritz Carlton than a Marriott.

The rooms were gorgeous. The spa (which was rated the top Marriott spa in the chain) was 20,000 sq. ft., and had a really beautiful ladies quiet room, with jacuzzi. I had an aromatherapy massage and pedicure, both of which were wonderful and very affordable.

The town of Fairhope was quaint. We ate at the hotel most of the weekend, but also ate at Gambino's, an Italian restaurant in Fairhope. I really liked this restaurant--good value and large portions, which often are oxy morons.

We didn't golf or play tennis and spent most of the time at the pools (2 outdoor, 1 indoor); but, the golf and tennis facilities looked great.

Overall, a nice and relaxing weekend close to home (only about 2 hrs and 15 minutes away from us).
