Think of the Marriott as a Caribbean cruise ship for landlubbers: It has 513 rooms and suites, seven restaurants, three pools, one gigantic casino, and a 15,000-square-foot spa. There's even a drugstore and a salon. You could lose your entire family in an afternoon (maybe a good thing), along with the contents of your wallet (not so good). Like a cruise ship, the Marriott does a great job of keeping its guests entertained, has a consistently smiling staff, and is terrific for tykes, thanks to a kids' club for ages 5–12. An 18-hole golf course is well landscaped, and you'll find good sand on Frigate Bay Beach, despite its location on the windward side of the island (the calmer Caribbean side is a mile away by shuttle). If you want all the amenities with less of the megaresort feel, inquire about a suite in one of the three-story Garden villas and ask Arbon the doorman for tips on touring the island.
