The coastline of Marco Island — with its wide, 3.5-mile swath of white-sand beach — features full-service resorts that offer abundant amenities, dining, and recreation.

One such property is the JW Marriott Marco Island Beach Resort. The sparkling property features the Spa by JW (one of two in the U.S.) and an exclusive adult collection of suites with a rooftop pool and bar and a private section of the beach. This resort also offers two resort private 18-hole championship golf courses, endless recreation options, amazing restaurants and spacious accommodations with premier amenities, technology upgrades and views of the Florida Gulf Coast.

The JW staff is determined to keep its property family-friendly and accessible. “Some guests at top resorts might feel intimidated to walk with their family through the lobby of the hotel in flip-flops,” says Amanda Cox, director of sales and marketing. “That’s completely fine here. Our service is luxury, but it’s warm and welcoming so that guests can really feel at home.”

Meeting and event planners should note that this resort offers more than 100,000 square feet of event space, meeting foyers, ballrooms and exhibit hall, in addition to its spacious beach for open-air events with Gulf of Mexico views.
