If you haven’t noticed, I have a little bit of a tourist crush this week on Marco Island in Florida. This little island off the eastern seaboard of Florida in the Gulf of Mexico is the perfect blend of Florida sunshine beauty and tropical island relaxation. There are some absolutely gorgeous pristine white beaches that run all around Marco Island, edging up against the warm blue waters of the Gulf. With an island this idyllic it only stands to reason that it would be home to a fabulous world-class resort hotel or two, and the Marco Beach Ocean Resort definitely qualifies. In fact, Travel & Leisure voted Marco Beach among the top 16 resorts in the entirety of the United States.
Marco Beach Ocean Resort sits upon the beach that shares its name, a soft, powdery beach that looks like the stuff of movies. This setting is ideal for your wedding, family vacation or romantic getaway. The resort has a wide selection of one and two-bedroom suites, all of which offer breathtaking views and comfortable, stylish furnishings that will make you as comfortable as if you were in your own home. Not that you’ll be spending much time in your room with all the activities available at the resort. The main amenity at Marco Beach Resort is of course the beach, where you can sit in luxurious beach chairs to watch the most beautiful sunset. But there is also a rooftop pool, shops, golf, tennis as well as restaurants and bars to relax in after a long day on the sand.
