We look forward to going there year after year. We've been going there for the last 8 years.We're from Chicago and I can tell you that there's no place we look so forward to going to like Marco Island and staying at our condo on the top floor corner unit overlooking the Gulf and the Spectacular sunsets. It's breathtaking and quite an experience day after day.
The view of the Gulf from up top is amazing, from watching the occasional Dolphins playing early in the morning to getting a great scan of the whole stretch of shoreline along Marco. Its AWESOME. Staff is great, Grill is excellent, Grounds are well maintained/kept. Condo floor plans are very comfortable & spacious- wet bar, kitchen area with dishwasher and granite counter tops. Great master bedroom with view of the Gulf just feet away from the big balcony( our corner unit has a wrap around balcony-nice). although not nearly as new as the pricier buildings along Collier Blvd. but from I can tell you, this resort and our building sits closer to the beach than any other buildings and that is what makes this place better than most.
There's a 4 screen movie theater right across the street where you can even order food and eat while watching the movie, and lots of restaurants that are and offer a variety of flavors for every taste bud. We love to leave the sliding glass doors open to our bedroom at night to listen to the waters as the surf come in and goes back out.
And speaking of the sounds of the surf, make sure to enjoy the view of the Gulf at night. When the moon is out ,the light stretches out over the whole view but its best when there is no moon and on a clear night you'll see millions of stars that take your breath away especially when you catch a glimpse of shooting stars( and you will see many at times shooting across the universe)
The countdown is on!!! 10 days and counting...... Hope this helps and you enjoy it as much as we do.
