We booked our stay at Eagle's Nest via our Disney timeshare. The resort was absolutley wonderful - very clean and a great location right on the beach. Every person we spoke to at the resort was friendly and helpful. We booked 4 chairs and an umbrella on the beach ($160 for the week) and everyday we went outside, the chairs were already set up for us. The pool was comfortable, and it never seemed overly crowded. Of course we visited in the summer and nothing was crowded...
The only downside of the condo was that there is only a lunch counter open at the pool each day from noon to 1 pm. It only offered one lunch item (hamburgers, hot dogs, taco salad, to name a few), but it was an ok alternative to going back into your condo to make lunch. I would have liked something a little bigger, perhaps offering service on the beach.
Our girls (16 and 17) parasailed and loved it. We went to the Everglades and took an airboat tour on Capt. Doug's. We spotted 5 alligators and enjoyed the ride. There are many other things we could have done to entertain ourselves, but we just wanted to relax on the beach.
We ate breakfast every day in the condo. There is a Publix nearby and it was easier, and cheaper, than going out to breakfast. We ate lunch out only once, at Guy Harvey's. It was wonderful and if you are a transplanted Philadelphian like I am. the Philly cheesesteak was the closest to a "real one" that I have eaten in the last 8 years.
For dinner: We ate at Joey's Pizza twice, once for delicious NY style pizza and once for stombolis. Great! We ate at Mozart's for German food and it was good. Fat Pelican's sushi was the best - very fresh and beautifully prepared. We ate at Tokyo Inn for hibachi cooking - just like Benihana, ok, but I wouldn't go back. Lastly, we ate at Capt. Brien's, which was good. The mahi mahi was the best my husband has ever eaten and my daughter and I enjoyed the rare sesame tuna.
All in all, if you want a relaxing vacation, Marco Island and Eagle's Nest is perfect!
