Marriott Newport Villas Building Selection Guide

Choosing the perfect villa to suit your needs and preferences can be tricky sometimes, especially considering the multitude of options available. This guide will help you select just the right villa.

See our Marriott Newport Villa Guide for detailed property descriptions with pictures, things to know, and things to do.

About the Villa Buildings

The 70-acre hillside site features 41 buildings ranging from two to four stories. Each building is based on traditional Italian hill towns and villages. Balconies, roof overhangs, and terraces create an air of informality that is reflective of the casual lifestyle of a vacation resort. Sprawled over the rolling hillside the buildings create a Mediterranean-style village characterized by stone finished, sculpted plaster detailing, and Spanish clay tile roofs.

Most buildings have elevators and self-serve bellman luggage carts available. There is an ice machine in each building and an area to drop off trash.

There are many conveniently located gas grills and patios by all buildings throughout the property. Billed as a smoke free property, there is smoking allowed in several designated outside areas throughout the resort.

Which Building at Newport Coast Villas to Choose?

Building numbers range from 1000 to 5100. The buildings in the 1000s start closest to the Pacific Ocean and then ascend uphill with the 5000 buildings at the highest point.

Scenic Views

The resort is surrounded by the Newport coastline and overlooks the exclusive Pelican Hill Golf Course, the Pacific Ocean, and complete with views of Catalina Island.

As a general rule the buildings higher up the hill will have better ocean views as will the villas that are in the higher stories. The property is on a hill but it is flatter towards the Pacific ocean where the 1000 buildings are located and steeper where the 4000 and 5000 buildings are located.

Floor Levels

The highest floors will offer the best views with less chance of noise from outside, through the walls, or kids running or jumping.

Lower floors are easier to unload and load your belongings and offer a quicker path out of the buildings. If you’re on a higher floor such as the 4th floor you’ll either be walking four flights of stairs or waiting for a single elevator. Lower floors may also be available at better rates since the view may be limited.

People with disabilities or difficulty moving around may prefer lower floors.

Location, Location, Location

There is no best location or villa. It’s personal preference as each villa offers varying degrees of views, privacy, and location to preferred activities and environments.

The closer the villa is to the main building the closer you are to all the activities, food and drinks, and a more lively environment. Villas farther away offer more privacy, quieter pools, and unique things to do that the main building area doesn’t offer. For instance, the smaller pools offer better setups for large groups of families and friends to congregate. Tennis lovers may enjoy being situated right next to the tennis courts and parents with small children may prefer the walk in pool and kids splash area.

There is a by request only shuttle service to navigate across the resort but there can be a wait for the shuttle to arrive.

Villa Number Meanings

Each villa has four numbers. The first two digits is the building number, the next digit is floor number, and the last digit is the villa number. For instance, villa 2025 will be building 2000, 2nd floor, villa 5.

Villa Building Notes

1000 Buildings

All 1000 buildings are 2-stories offering less of an opportunity for ocean views. They are situated along the fenced Pelican Hill Golf Course with tree hedges just inside the fence. Most of the 1200-1900 buildings have little or no views including resort trees blocking views since they are only two-stories.

The Tide Pool is the closest pool which has a walk in pool and a children’s water slide and splash pad area.

Starting from building 1000 and ascending the further away you are from the main building. Buildings 1600 to 1900 are not too far away from the main pool and building. To get to the main pool entrance there are two flights of stairs.
