Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. (Vocus) July 3, 2010
Sawgrass Marriott Golf Resort & Spa has been named one of the Best Beach Resorts for Families by Parents.com, the website of Parents Magazine. Praised for its mini golf course designed by Arnold Palmer, kids-only swimming pools, shark tooth hunts and private beach, the Sawgrass Marriott joined an elite list of 20 family-friendly vacation spots, including resorts in Jamaica, Honolulu, the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico.
To determine its winners, Parents.com researched the cost of a weeks vacation for a family of four at a number of mid-priced beach resorts. They took the properties on the most affordable half of the list, and compared such factors as ocean views, childrens programs, childrens menus, nonstop family activities, availability of lifeguards and comfy rooms.
It is a tremendous honor to be included among the finest family beach resorts by Parents.com, said Jeff Mayers, general manager of the Sawgrass Marriott Golf Resort & Spa. This listing, combined with our recent ranking as one of the Top 10 Best Relaxation/Spa Hotels in North America by the readers of TripAdvisor
