This year we want something different so we are headed Gulf side. I have great rates on hold with the Marco Island Marriott (under $700 including tax) and the Ritz Naples Golf (around $950 including tax) both for 7 nights. I can reserve the Ritz Naples Beach for around $1250. Parking is $12/day at Marriott, Free at Ritz Golf and $25 at Ritz Beach. Looking for the best balance of cost and environment. My wife has never stayed at a Ritz before but at the same time the Marriott is 1/2 of that cost. Not sure if Naples Golf is worth it for the money compared to MMI, although you do get full use of Ritz Beach.
We like to sit on the beach most of the day and then relax in the room for an hour or so, shower up and head out to a nice dinner. We'll have a car and explore and will take a water trip of some sort I'm sure (Everglades, Manatee, etc). I know Naples has shopping and that is no big deal really. We do like to eat at moderate to high end eateries when on vacation.
Just not sure about Marco Island. Any advice would be appreciated and thanks.
