Marco Island–the largest of southwest Florida's Ten Thousand Islands–lies near the western border of the Everglades, one of the largest wetlands in the world. About 30 miles east of the hotel, this subtropical ecosystem supports a diverse population of endangered species, including the American crocodile, leatherback turtle, and Florida panther. Airboat tours cut through acres of wispy sawgrass, allowing up-close views of swamp things. Marco Island features a beautiful crescent shoreline that stretches along the Gulf of Mexico. Located three miles from the hotel, Tigertail Beach offers a quiet stretch of white sands, picturesque dunes, and tidal lagoons. There are countless inlets, rivers, and smaller clusters of islands surrounding Marco Island, making it a great spot to boat and fish. A small fleet of local charter boats ply the waters for snapper, snook, and grouper. Read the Fine Print for important info on travel dates and other restrictions.

In the other suite, hairstylists offer a raft of salon services, and nail technicians perform mani-pedis in private rooms.
