A family-friendly resort brimming with 13 tennis courts, three heated pools, an 18-hole golf course and a long stretch unspoiled beach, Hutchinson Island Marriott Beach Resort & Marina is the island's "best resort," says Frommer's. Unlike other coastal areas, the area is not very built up and the resort is surrounded by palm trees and carefully tended lawns, with few high-rises to interrupt the views.
The 200-acre property is only a 10-minute drive across the Intracoastal Waterway from Stuart but is completely self-contained and right on the beach. Nearby attractions include the 57-acre Florida Oceanographic Coastal Center at Jensen Beach and the Savannas Preserve State Park, for hiking, kayaking and bird watching. The resort is 15 minutes by car from The Savannah's Shopping Plaza.
The three cafés and bars (including a poolside tiki bar) cover casual dining needs with sandwiches and salads, and there’s the Baha Grille, which serves more substantial seafood, steaks and pasta all day. There's also a gym with free fitness classes for guests and a 77-berth marina to the north of the St Lucie inlet.
Rooms are split between the low-rise main resort and the Sandpiper Tower on the waterfront. All are roomy, with patios or balconies, while the main resort rooms have a wet bar. Those in the Tower also have kitchenettes, making them popular with families. Most rooms have golf course views, but some open out onto the pool deck or face the Atlantic Ocean, Intracoastal Waterway or marina. There's a regular shuttle service to the beach for those staying in the main resort building.
There is a $15 resort fee per room per night, which provides access to parking, internet, on-site transport, towel service, golf balls at the aqua driving range and tennis court access.
