No. 2 Ritz-Carlton, Naples, FL
This Mediterranean-inspired beachfront resort—Ritz-Carlton's flagship near the Gulf of Mexico—has a 51,000-square-foot spa, access to premier golf, and a kid-friendly entertainment center (including 11 aquariums). South-facing Coastal Rooms overlooking the resort pool also offer views of the Gulf of Mexico—at a lower price than the west-facing Gulf Front rooms. The hotel has a great children's program, Nature's Wonders, that introduces them to jellyfish, baby alligators, and eels (in aquariums). A staff of certified naturalists leads walks and boat rides in the surrounding ecosystems.
