Nestled between the Indian River and Atlantic Ocean, Hutchinson Island Marriott Beach Resort & Marina features 200 acres at the Indian River Plantation in Stuart, Florida. Our location makes us the perfect starting point for deep sea and Sailfish fishing expeditions.
Stroll along miles of unspoiled beaches, visit The Elliott Museum, House of Refuge and The Florida Oceanographic Society or shop on Main Street in historic downtown Stuart.
Approach Instructions: Enter the St. Lucie Inlet. Proceed northbound along the Intercostal Waterway. Proceed two miles north on the east side of the river. The marina is located just south of the Stuart Causeway Bridge, on the east side of the Intercostal Waterway.
It was very hard to tie up with the wind, tide and waves. The resort was very run down.
Val was a huge help on arrival! And we enjoyed the tiki bar restaurant & pool! But beach lady was not nice or helpful. No towels and didn’t get us any. Didn’t let us sit on chairs that were empty for over 2 hours while we sat on sand!
I was completely underwhelmed by the whole marina situation! We had reservations and therefore should have had a specific spot for our boat to be docked. If there were no spots for it than the reservation should not have been taken. My husband was told to park the boat next to the rental boat area. Huge mistake! He didn’t feel right about it because he was worried about inexperienced boaters. We went out to move our boat and before we could get in, there was a rental boat coming in. They hit our boat of course and scratched up the paint on the side. Thank goodness it didn’t do more damage because the guy panicked and floored the boat. The marina was extremely choppy and not very protected. Our boat kept hitting up against the CONCRETE dock. Needless to say, we will be doing unplanned patchwork and painting to the boat after two days! Definitely not worth the risk and would never put the boat there again. We have a 27’ Conch. Bigger boats might fair well there, unfortunately we did not. We could not get into our room until 4 pm which is really late in my opinion. We dropped the boat at the marina at 1 and then wandered around until the texted at 4. Felt like a wasted day. If you stay at the main hotel, you will take a shuttle to the beach. The resort is really spread out on the land. The pool bar restaurant area is nice to sit with the kids and relax. Overall it is ok. Probably would pick a different place next time. With a late check in and early check out, it cuts into your overall time at the resort.
We were not placed in an actual slip just along the dock where the boat rubbed and smashed into the dock all night. Even with our bumpers in place. Also no one was available to help bring the luggage out to the boat and none of the dock carts were anywhere in sight. Very poorly run Marina
Excellent dock staff, easy access and good facilities, however is exposed to wakes and weather.
Great area and pool. Docks are fixed and not easy to board/inboard for transients- but it’s clean with nice and helpful staff.
Well run Great staff
You can always expect something nice from Marriott. Very nice resort with beach, tiki bars and pools. Unfortunately the main restaurant was not open due to Covid. Marina staff was friendly and helpful. I rated it at only 4 stars because the slips were a bit rocky in a north or south wind. Not good wave attenuation. Good for a short stay.
General facilities are good. Having the resort is great. Would be nice if they had a pump out, shower facilities, etc. our first stay here was not great but we have been back twice since and the staff has gone out of their way to make it a great experience.
Great location with terrific people. There is some exposure to wakes from ICW, but it is rarely troubling. Docks are short, fixed concrete which necessitates lassoing as you back in. Not bad if it is your permanent slip, but a pain for transients. Don't be on the south side of the south dock, because that is very exposed and you are on the wrong side of the breakwater. No mobile or in slip pump-out. Trash bins at every slip which is terrific!
Great place! Golf, swimming pools, Tiki bar, tennis. What's not to like!!
The dockmaster was great. The woman at the front desk not so much.
nice time but very empty marina for a holiday weekend.
Dock master very helpful. Great amenities (on site restaurants, pools, convenient walk to Publix groceries and liquor, tram service [golf carts/not van] to beach, exec golf course, etc.). Historically dog friendly beach and outdoor restaurants. Now dogs excluded from outdoor grill at beach. Management needs to re-think this policy. Indian River Plantation/Marriott Resort is our favorite get-away for cruising.
We enjoyed our stay at the Marriott Marina. The pool was a welcome treat, and we had numerous delicious meals at the poolside restaurant.
VALERIE AND STAFF WONDERFUL
Clean marina and helpful Dock Master.
great location. close to public boat ramp. marina offers trailer parking.
Great place!! Dock master was very helpful!!
Good clean Marina with plenty of room. Hotel Marriott at same Property needs updating and additional staffing. Service is very slow and housekeeping is lacking the staff to get job done in a reasonable time.
Every evening had someone different parked in our assigned slip, ended up parking in any open slips ( probably someone else's assigned slip) makes it difficult to get your lines set up for return. No one there to correct problem.
Great dockmaster. Clean, friendly.
Our stay was wonderful. Giovanni at the front deck is fabulous. Valorie the dock master is also great. We liked having the bikes available so we could bike to the grocery store and the beach. We are on a boat and didn’t have a car. I would give you five stars.
EASY!!! Clean quiet secure
The Marriott amenities were great and the marina staff were excellent. However the marina is not shielded from the day to day water turbulence. The constant slapping of water against our hull was very annoying.
Richard Noonan Dock Master made our stay perfect.Wonderful place to stay.We’ll be back.
Great spot. Nice and helpful
About one of the worst services encountered in many years of sailing! We have sailed from LA to Annapolis, extensively North Sea, Baltic Sea, Atlantic and Mediterranean Sea but never encountered such high prices with such a lack of service. Well before his shift end, we had tied to the fuel dock for the night and wanted to get fuel. The dock master did not want to do it then and promised to do it at 7 am as we wanted to leave early. We waited till 7:30 am but no dock master, nobody answering the phones or VHF nor an apology from the General Manager, we spoke to. We advise everyone to stay away from this marina and we will spread the word around.
Richard gets a five star rating. He was most helpful in docking assisting me in heavy crosswinds necessary due to my wife’s recent hip replacement preventing gopher to perform her normal docking duties. He repeated his five star help when we departed. In all, our stay in all respects was also five star.
Bathroom are very olds For the men 1 showers on 2 was broken
