I'm going to Fairway Villas in 2 weeks. I called ahead - front desk says NO cleaning service (unless you want to pay 27 dollars). I know Barony Beach, Aruba Ocean Club, and Newport Coast had at least one clean, one tidy - I think... And pretty sure Marbella had at least one...

Does anyone know if it's true - no cleaning at Fairways? And maybe we can list which ones DO have tidy or clean "free." THANKS!

I am thinking that many of the domestic Marriott TS don't have any type of tidy service. I don't know which ones do and which ones don't, a list would be handy.

We actually prefer the no cleaning service. The do not disturb sign goes on our door when we check in and doesn't come off until the last time we walk out the door (unless we call down for something).

Maybe I've been spoiled by Marriott FS hotels but I love twice daily maid service with turn down at night with chocolates. :) Lazy huh?

For people staying alone in a TS I think daily maid service is a safety feature in case you've "fallen and can't get up". For the same reason, I like cordless phones too.

We were at Barony last May and they did not have a mid-week tidy service unless you requested it and paid a fee. We will be at Newport Coast next March and it is my understanding that they also do not offer a free mid-week tidy service.

In fact, we have never had a mid-week tidy service at any of the Marriott's we own or have exchanged into. We have never recieved a mid-week cleaning with Marriott nor do we expect one for any of our future exchanges.

We were at Fairway Villas for a week in Sept. and did not receive mid week tidy service. Also, we were at Ocean Watch in May, Ocean Pointe in Nov. and Surfwatch in July and did not receive it either. However, just returned Sunday from Frenchman's Cove and we did receive the mid week tidy service---fresh towels, removal of trash, freshening of the beds(same linens) and general of the villa.

We own at Barony Beach. There is no mid-week cleaning unless you pay for it. That is unless you have RENTED from Marriott. None of the U.S. Marriott TS we've stayed at has had a free mid-week cleaning.
