Spring breaking in Marco Island

Marriot’s Crystal Shores offers something for everyone

Florida is a very popular destination for spring break and there are many good reasons for it. Specifically Marco Island, Florida, there are many great restaurants, shops, and activities around the beach. It is farther south, so you never have to worry about it being cold throughout the year. My favorite place to stay at is the beach resort, Marriot’s Crystal Shores.

At Marriot’s Crystal Shores, there is waterfront Stilts Beachside Bar & Grill, a simple pizzeria, and a terrace available. A garden, two heated outdoor pools, two outdoor hot tubs, a waterslide, and beach access are among the other attractions, which also include a BBQ area, a game room, and a fitness center. There is also plenty of shaded and non-shaded parking.

If you are a beach person, there are umbrellas and chairs to purchase for $5 a day per chair/ umbrella. The resort provides towels every day that can be returned and washed. You can have the opportunity to witness sea life on rent jet skis or tubes. Attractions such as restaurants, shops are all within walking distance, or the Naples Zoo, and the Florida Everglades are within a short drive. In addition, the Fort Myers Airport is a 45-minute trip. 

The comfortable 2- and 3-bedroom villas provide furnished balconies, as well as washer/dryers, flat-screen TVs, and Wi-Fi. All villas have living rooms and kitchens. Ocean views are available in upgraded villas. Check-in usually starts at 4:00 pm and check-out is at 10:00 am. 

My favorite features are the oceanside views, the Pina Coladas at the Stilts Beachside Bar & Grill, and of course relaxing on the beach. The Marriot’s Crystal Shores is rated a 4.5-star to a 5-star resort. Overall, I would highly recommend booking a stay at the Marriot’s Crystal Shores that comes with many amazing different amenities.
