I live in Florida full time also. Things are opening up here already. All of the beaches are open this week, except Miami area. Same for the restaurants, with maximum 25% capacity, empty tables between guests. I suspect by Memorial day weekend just about everything will be open. Most people are realizing that the shutdown was a huge mistake. NYC high density conditions are not common here, except Miami.

Most people are realizing that the shutdown was a huge mistake ? Really ? Yes, I live in Florida too(nearby to Marco city of Naples) and only a very limited number of restaurants opened yesterday under the current restrictions. Hair salons/spas/gyms remain closed. There is a long way to go. But the shutdown a huge mistake ? Yikes!

I was there over the weekend. Quinns was open on Friday and Saturday both for sit down and take away, It closed for sit-down on Sunday as most people checked out of the hotel. 400 Pazza was open for take away service throughout although you could take food to their outside tables. Friday and Saturday, Quinns offered beach service but it seemed to take quite a while to get it. I believe this was the first weekend for them to be open. Cafe San Marco (Illy Coffee) was open each morning from 7 to 11. A continental breakfast for Platinums + was available there although it was a choice of this or 500 points per day.

Off property a number of restaurants (Italian, Seafood, Mexican, Sports Bar) at a local strip mall were open with good social distancing

Elevators were posted to be one family per car and it seemed to work well for the occupancy level of the hotel, a slight wait during the busier times. They all had hand sanitizers installed within.

Beach chairs and pool chairs seemed to be the most popular, both both seemed to be in good supply and able to provide distance between families, etc.

I will say I sort of missed a place that you could sit and have a professionally mixed cocktail at night, Quinns did offer this service during the day. I assume as occupancy levels increase this will also be available (Memorial Day weekend?) The hotel also has a QR scan daily that provides information on what services and venues are open day to day. The shops were mostly closed but the jewelry shop was open for a few hours in the afternoon/evening on Saturday and I think the shop adjoining Cafe San Marco was also open from time to time.

Thank you. That's the kind of info I was looking for. I very much appreciate it.

At check in, I was given a menu for Quinns with a limited breakfast menu but I didn't go to it. The only elite breakfast was the continental breakfast at the Club San Marco (Illy coffee venue).

Suite Night Rewards system is not automatically functioning and that standard was suspended until at least 6/1. Advocate with the property for an upgrade.

Hello. I was told today (phone) that the elite breakfast (for a future reservation) is typically a continental offering at Maia. I assume this is a credit toward a normal breakfast? Has anyone experience with this PRE-COVID. https://modules.marriott.com/resourc...-breakfast.pdf

Pre-Covid, the elite breakfast was either free continental or a credit toward the full buffet at Maia. When I was there, they had the free continental in a different room, I guess just so people didn't "forget" and walk to the full buffet line. We peeked in at the continental and it didn't look very impressive, so we ended up opting for the full. My recollection is that the full buffet with discount was still not cheap (maybe something like $15 instead of $35 full price).
