JW Marriott Grande Lakes
The JW Marriott's panoramic landscaped gardens, complete with lagoons and an 18-hole golf course, may be shared with the Ritz Carlton, but there's still an overwhelming feeling of exclusivity at this stylish resort. Marble tiling and simple colors frame memorable views over the waterways and the facilities are top-notch, with dining options including the signature Italian restaurant, Primo. There's a lazy river outdoor pool area or biking and kayaking trails for the more active, and guests can even learn to fish or take an eco-tour of the nearby Everglades. Free shuttle buses transport families to the nearby theme parks, cutting out expensive parking fees.
