  1. Westgate Lakes 

All the fun of Disney and a great resort. 

If you have decided that Orlando is the right spot for your vacation – and that’s a great choice in itself – then you’ll need to know that the hotel you’ve chosen is the right one too. When it comes to Florida resorts, Westgate knows just how to make people happy, and Westgate Lakes is their flagship accommodation in the Disney area. It comes completed with its own waterpark – Treasure Cove – which consists of slides, flumes, a 41,000-gallon wave pool, and a great lazy river. There are seven pools in total, as well as a number of on-site restaurants and a shuttle to and from the parks. In other words, Westgate Lakes has everything you might want when you’re vacationing at Disney World, and it offers exceptional prices too.

  1. The Ritz-Carlton Key Biscayne

The one and only hotel on Key Biscayne. 

Key Biscayne is only 15 miles away from South Beach, but it’s a unique and quiet spot that many people adore, and what’s more, it has the Ritz-Carlton Key Biscayne for you to stay at, promoting this great vacation place to a much higher standing. This is the only hotel on Key Biscayne, and that could spell trouble, but the fact is that the Ritz-Carlton tries its hardest to be the best it can be, despite the lack of competition. That’s impressive, and so is the hotel, with plenty of five-star amenities on offer. There are various different accommodation options to pick from here, from studios to larger apartments, and each and every one of them is pristine and sumptuous. You’ll breathe a sigh of relief when you check in and immediately get the laid-back but luxurious vibe. Some rooms offer ocean views, although you will need to book this if you definitely want one. Otherwise, you can leave it up to chance.

  1. Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa 

Take in the magnificent views. 

The Eau Palm Beach Resort in Manalapan is a gorgeous resort. There’s no denying it. Yet everyone is welcome, and no matter whether you’re traveling on a budget or have all the money in the world, you’ll be treated the same. This is one of the things that makes staying here such a fun treat, but the proximity to the stunning beaches and ocean is certainly the icing on the cake. The hotel is designed to remind people to have fun, which is so crucial on vacation – it’s bright and vibrant and feels fresh and exciting. As soon as you step inside the main lobby, your eye will be drawn to the view of the Atlantic Ocean. There is plenty to see and do at this resort, including a fitness center, a great pool, various classes, a bar for cocktails and snacks, a restaurant, and a kids’ club. Bear in mind that if you’re booking this as a place for your family to stay, children must be both over three and potty-trained.

  1. Hutchinson Shores Resort & Spa 

A nautical theme and a beautiful resort. 

The location of the Hutchinson Shores Resort & Spa is a great one, being on a barrier island between the Indian River and the Atlantic Ocean itself. That means you have views in every direction, and it also makes this a quiet place to stay, which is sure to be important when you’re booking a vacation. The beach being almost within touching distance means that you can use it as much as possible, and since there are so many activities – including horse riding and kite surfing – that’s going to be a lot. The hotel is a fun one; it’s very modern, so it might not be to everyone’s taste, but the added design touches bring it back down to earth and ensure that everyone can find something to love. There are two outdoor pools to cool off in and a hot tub too. That’s not all; there is a cycle and running path, a spa, a fitness center, and a shop. The rooms are designed in natural tones with white and blue accents, giving the entire place a nautical air which fits perfectly with its great location. Each room contains a walk-in shower for extra luxury.

5. Pelican Grand Beach Resort     

Beachside rocking chairs add to the relaxing feeling. 

When you think of Fort Lauderdale, what springs to mind? Is it the gorgeous beaches? If so, the Pelican Grand Beach Resort has you covered because gorgeous beaches are among the many things it does so well. With that in mind, it’s perfectly acceptable to check-in and then heads straight out to the beautiful white sandy beach, which is just a few steps away. However, if you do that, you’ll miss out on plenty of fun and luxury in the hotel itself, so make sure you leave enough time to try everything at least once. That includes the fantastically relaxing lazy river, which is always a bonus whenever you find one. There is also a zero-entry pool which is a great option for families. The ice cream bar nearby is a must for when the sun is hottest or just when you fancy a tasty treat. Why not take that ice cream, a good book, or your favorite tunes and sit in one of the hotel’s beachside rocking chairs as the sun sets and you reflect on what a perfect vacation you’re having?

  1. Margaritaville Hollywood Beach 

Explore the local area. 

Did you know that Margaritaville – which has resorts in a variety of different places – came about because of Jimmy Buffet, and his famous song, Margaritaville, inspired the fun feeling and beautiful bright décor of these resorts? That’s what makes them so unique and memorable, and the Margaritaville Hollywood Beach is certainly no exception. You’ll find it on the famous Hollywood Beach Boardwalk, so you’ll be close to shops, bars, restaurants, and many different kinds of entertainment. It would be a shame not to investigate this area fully, but you don’t have to because the hotel itself has everything you could need. With exceptional customer service and impressive attention to detail, this 18-story, the 369-room resort is a great choice. The atmosphere is laid back and friendly, and there is a lot to do, which includes many water sports (including a FlowRider where you can try your hand at surfing) and a number of different bars.

  1. Jupiter Beach Resort & Spa 

Old world charm in abundance. 

Jupiter Beach can be found in Palm Beach County, and the Jupiter Beach Resort & Spa can be found tucked neatly away in a quiet spot, but with plenty of access to all the amenities and attractions you might want to enjoy. There is a gentle charm and elegance to this resort, particularly as the style and architecture are all about the Florida plantation-type décor. That includes potted plants, wooden floors, large floor-to-ceiling windows, and soft, comfortable upholstery on all the furnishings. It’s cool and relaxed and certainly makes you feel as though you’re on vacation. Going out of your room is a great call because although they are beautifully appointed, you would miss out on such things as the hammocks, the fire pits, and the lounge chairs that look out over the ocean.

  1. Lago Mar Beach Resort & Club 

An intimate place to stay. 

The Lago Mar Beach Resort & Club is a big place – it has over 200 rooms – but you won’t feel overlooked or overwhelmed; you’ll feel at home. There is something very familiar about the place, and that’s part of its charm. Located in Fort Lauderdale, just 10 minutes away from the Riverwalk Arts and Entertainment District, you’re still nice and secluded in your room and on the grounds, helping you with that ‘get away from it all’ attitude. To add to that, the hotel has 500 feet of beach all to itself. There is always something happening at this resort, and you can take part in many different activities, including volleyball, ping pong, and mini-golf. Plus, there is a beachside playground for the kids. There are four restaurants onsite as well as two bars, but you’re close enough to the city to try out more if you want to.
