Enjoy a luxurious stay at a Marriott Resort for a fraction of the cost. Typical savings range from 30-70% when comparing our rates to direct resort bookings. All of our units are managed and maintained by the resort. Guest have full access to all resort amenities - exactly the same as the owner and other guests at the resort. Upon arrival, guests will check-in at the resort’s front desk using their resort confirmation # just as if they had booked directly through the resort.
To be absolutely certain, this is a Gulf Front apartment - directly overlooking the beach. Don't confuse with other apartments offering a 'beach view' from the rear apartment block at the back of the resort. This block is the one that directly overlooks the beach - and offers amazing views of the sunsets.
Note that the system operates similar to a hotel - in that the actual apartment is allocated near to or upon arrival. You do have the opportunity to request high or low floor - but it will ALWAYS be in the beach front block.
Just a short drive away from Naples, upscale shopping, wildlife trails, chartered fishing, and Everglades National Park, the adventures are plentiful. Marriott's Crystal Shores resort offers sweeping views of the Gulf of Mexico. The resort offers direct beach access, heated pools, a whirlpool and a waterslide.
There are three swimming pools, (one with a waterslide), a bar / restaurant, pool table, BBQ's for cooking and much, much more.
The resort is a sparkling gem on the southwestern tip of Florida's Gulf Coast. It’s situated on three miles of pristine beaches, offering stylish residences within four luminous towers. In 2017 the resort was upgraded to a Marriott category 9 Resort. (Currently the highest category available)!!
Elegant swimming pools cascade from the open-air lobby to the beach, providing guests a picturesque setting to relax and unwind.
Numerous on-site amenities and neighboring Naples entice visitors with plentiful shopping, upscale dining and a rich arts culture.
As you will see from the pics, we love watching the beautiful sunsets - straight out across the Gulf. Being Florida, depending on the time of year, also expect some dazzling thunderstorms too. (Mostly, these are out in the Gulf or over the Everglades - rather than overhead).
This will not be the cheapest property you will find in Marco - but if you're looking for a great, high quality resort, with direct access to the beach, then this could be the place for you. Such is the popularity of Crystal Shores, that the resort is typically fully booked year round.

Interaction with guests
There is a full reception for guests on site. At peak times, there is also a drinks service around the main pools.
Marco Island is the largest of Florida's Ten Thousand Islands, located on the Gulf of Mexico in Southwest Florida. It has been described as magical, mystical and alluring. The attraction is tropical sun-washed white sand beaches and a casual easy paced lifestyle. Sunshine, frolicking dolphins, and all of the water and sun sports that go with the beaches are available for your pleasure.
You can hire boats from the local marina - then take the inland waterways to Naples - hopefully seeing dolphins as you travel.
There's the Everglades National Park right close by - plus shopping and much more.
