We stayed at the JW Marriott in Marco, Island for 5 days over the Fourth of July holidays. Marco Island is is a city in Collier County, located in an island in the Gulf of Mexico off the coast of Southwest Florida, which is about a 2 hour drive from Ft Lauderdale, FL, which is where we currently reside. Marco island is the largest barrier island within South Florida.
The Marriott was a perfect choice for us. This 4 Star hotel has all the amenities required for a perfect vacation. As a Healthy Fit Couple, it is very important that the resorts we check in have an adequate gym, healthy food options and a wellness program. This hotel had all that and more.
While staying at the Marriott we made an appointment for a 90 minute deep massage. Not only was the massage amazing, the private pool and Spa area was perfect. We laid basked in the sun while sipping pink mimosas after our amazing massage.
All of the meals we had at several of their restaurants were outstanding. We were actually lucky one night, we sat at the bar at Ario, which happens to be facing the open kitchen. We were able to see the chefs and servers preparing and plating the dishes. This was the highlight for Geo since he loves food photography.
Our dinner at Ario was fantastic. The steak was cooked to perfection. The cocktails are crafted and original.
Our rate included a free breakfast brunch, which had pretty good options. For us healthy eaters, the omelette station is essential and they did have one available. All of the rest of the meals were amazing at the restaurants in the resort.
On one of the days, the boys chartered a boat and when fishing. They caught the most delicious snapper lane. The experience was memorable. As they caught a few fishes, the captain cleaned them and filleted them. We then took them over to Cocomos Grill, where the chef prepared the most amazing fish I have ever tasted. They cooked it crusted with Jalapenos, and pan seared with key lime beurre blanc sauce. If you are in Marco Island please make sure to dine here.
We spend these 5 days, sailing, working out, photo shooting on the beach, eating well and relaxing. HealthyFitCouple enjoys taking time to make memories, taking time to enjoy each other and disconnecting.
