Naples or Marco Island

Planning a July trip and trying to decide between Naples and Marco Island. Which has the best beach, would like a beach resort or hotel. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Also, have an 11 year old, so "kids welcome" is a must. Great beach is a must.

Both have great beaches. The Marriott Resort on Marco is probably the best self contained situation for an 11 year old, and of course, you!!

Naples has everything but is so high end for the most part, that it may be overkill for

your child!!!

Thanks so much for the advice on Marco Island. We have decided this is the place and are currently looking into the Radisson Suite Beach Resort. Any thoughts on this hotel?

It is next door to the Marriott..We have been to both... The difference in quality, service and especially

availabe activities for your child will be far greater than the price differential. For a short stay, especially in the summer, I

would choose the Marriott. If just getting to

the beach is the issue, The Radisson would

suffice.
