I was taught that you can’t please everyone all the time. However, a family vacation is supposed to do just that. Dads, moms, toddlers, teenagers and even grandparents—I want everyone to leave saying, “That was an awesome vacation!” This is even more difficult when you have certain activities that a family member wants to do on vacation like golf. 

We recently had an opportunity to vacation at the newly renovated Sawgrass Marriott Golf Resort & Spa.

Here are 5 Reasons Why Your Family Will Love Sawgrass Marriott

1. The Sawgrass Marriott Villas are perfect for families.

We spent three wonderful nights in one of the 2 bedroom Villas, which had a kitchenette, oversized master bathroom and spacious living area with an expansive patio. All villas are located in two-story buildings clustered around the property lagoons. This accommodation setup gives a family ample space, home-like amenities and a nice place to unwind from a day of activity and sun.

2. Enjoy gourmet dining with the kids beside you.

The dining at the Sawgrass Marriott Resort and Spa is beyond wonderful. It exceeded my expectations and impressed me more with each meal. The culinary team is top notch, highly skilled and very personable. They came out to talk about our meals on numerous occasions and made sure that they kids were just as pleased with their meals as the adults were.

3. The NEW wave simulator is a unique and fun activity for all ages.

I tried out the Wave Simulator and am happy to say that thanks to a good coaching session by the staff experts I was able to catch a wave many times! Simple, no. Fun- YES! You are giving plenty of instruction, safety gear and time to get it right. I saw kids as young as 6 participating, it is based on meeting a height requirement to participate. This would be a wonderful family activity to experience and learn together.

4. Kids Club Room is a perfect playtime while dad golfs or mom enjoys the spa.

While dad gets premium access to one of the PGA’s most desirable courses, The Stadium Golf Course at TPC Sawgrass or mom enjoys a relaxing treatment at the wellness and serenity spa the kids can have fun with games, toys, and art in the kids club room.

The resort has a variety of pools on property, one being at the private Cabana Beach Club overlooking the Atlantic ocean, which is accessible by a quick, complimentary shuttle ride.
