The safety of our guests and associates is a top priority. As guidance regarding face coverings and vaccination verification varies by local jurisdiction and may change, guests should review public information websites for the most up-to-date guidance for your destination, as well as the hotel-specific sections below and US and Canada Travel Advisories | Marriott Bonvoy™ before traveling. Fully vaccinated guests are no longer required to wear face coverings or social distance in indoor or outdoor areas of the hotel, unless required by local law.

A full spectrum of social distancing guidelines have been implemented throughout each property, including:

  • Altered traffic flow to support 6-foot spacing

  • Reductions in pool deck seating, where applicable
  • Continued closure of activities centers and kid's clubs. where applicable

In keeping with Our Next Level of Clean and Marriott's Commitment to Clean, we have made several enhancements to our cleaning practices throughout our property and accommodations. These include:

Enhanced Public Space Cleaning. With increased frequency and enhanced cleaning tools, you'll get a heightened level of clean and health safety throughout shared areas. You will find hand sanitizer stations at high-traffic public spaces like the lobby, front desk, elevator landings, food & beverage entrances and fitness center entrances.

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). All associates will wear PPE (e.g., face coverings, gloves, etc.) based on the activities they are performing and based on direction by the local authorities.

Electrostatic Spraying. We're utilizing enhanced technologies, including electrostatic sprayers with hospital-grade disinfectants, to support our already rigorous cleanliness protocols.

All of your private vacation spaces now undergo an even more robust regimen of cleaning protocols.

  • Hospital-grade disinfectants are used in every villa/room, before every check-in.
  • Disinfectant wipes are available in the villa/room for every arriving guest as well as upon request.
  • Each villa/room is thoroughly cleaned and disinfected, with particular attention paid to high-touch surfaces, such as light switches, door handles, remote controls, countertops, climate controls, and appliance doors using hospital-grade disinfectants
  • Removal and replacement of all unused linen/terry from villas/rooms
  • Removal and replacement of all unused bathroom amenities, such as soap and shampoo

Please assist us in donating any new or packaged socks by dropping your donations off at the Front Desk during your stay. Both Marriott's Shadow Ridge and the community thank you!

Free Wi-Fi, Free Parking & No Resort Fees

  • At Marriott's Shadow Ridge I-The Villages, enjoy complimentary wireless Internet in all villas, guest rooms and public areas. We also offer free on-site parking and do not charge resort fees.



  • Vacations Together: You can control your vacation environment in a spacious villa with the conveniences of home. A typical two-bedroom comfortably accommodates family or friends in more than 1,100 square feet, giving everyone their own space.
  • Private Balconies: Most villas include a generously sized private balcony or patio, great for sipping coffee, eating meals, or just relaxing in the fresh air.
  • Villa Cooking: For easy meals in, a fully equipped kitchen (or well-equipped kitchenette in guestrooms) lets you make your favorite dishes or snacks anytime. Or warm up those restaurant leftovers.
  • Comfortable Meals In: A villa gives you options to eat in your space, on your schedule. You might choose to cook, grab take-out, or get delivery, eating relaxed meals at your family-sized table. Or dine ‘out' on your own balcony.
  • Laundry: Most villas include a convenient washer/dryer, so you can have clean clothes (and dry bathing suits) all vacation long. Or if you're flying, pack less.
  • Living Areas: After days venturing off the beaten path, you can unwind together in your comfortable living room or on your outdoor balcony.

Features vary by room type. Refer to your selected room's description for details.
