Windward Passage Resort

Note: This resort has limited availability and requires a full-week stay with check-in on Saturday.

Enter a passage that leads to beautiful sandy beaches and tranquil mangrove-lined canals. Windward Passage Resort, located in the heart of Ft. Myers Beach, offers the ultimate opportunity to unwind.

Stretch your legs and enjoy the gentle ocean breeze with a morning walk on the powdery white sand beaches. Spend the afternoon lounging by the beachfront pool or engaged in a vigorous round of tennis or badminton. Gather the troops for a friendly game of volleyball or shuffleboard, or shoot some hoop on the basketball court. Borrow a bicycle for an afternoon jaunt to explore the island. After all the excitement, slip into our outdoor hot tub for some R&R.

Mere steps away, the beach is always at your beck and call, with an open invitation to sunbathe, sail, surf, snorkel or scuba dive. And when the kids aren’t busy chasing waves and building sandcastles on the beach, they’ll be having a blast at the on-site playground.

Tropical Sands Resort

Note: This resort has limited availability and requires a full-week stay with check-in on Saturday.

Aptly named, Tropical Sands Resort is a tropical oasis centered around a sun-splashed sun deck and palm-filled courtyard. Here, the beach is just across the street, beckoning you to relax in the inviting waters of the Gulf as the kids build a sandcastle on the shore.

The near constant temperatures make almost every day a day at the beach. Hop on a jet ski or go windsurfing and ride the waves. Take to the sky in a parasail or charter a fishing boat for an exciting day at sea.

If you prefer a break from the beach, you can always bask in the sun by the pool and hot tub, explore the island by bike, or relax in the privacy of your large screened-in porch.

After a day in the sun, cook up some burgers or steaks on the outdoor grills. We also host various social activities throughout the week such as cookouts, root beer float socials and bingo-by-the-pool.

After you’ve worked up a sweat, cool down with some leisurely laps in the spectacular heated pool. The showplace of Grande Villas, the pool is as refreshing to the eyes as it is to swimmers and sunbathers.

The Hammocks at Marathon

The Hammocks at Marathon is the Florida Keys at its best. Just off the only All-American road in Florida, The Florida Keys Overseas Highway, the entrance road envelops you in lush tropical foliage and Caribbean music greets you at the door. The glass-enclosed lobby is impressive with its 30-foot cathedral ceilings and saltwater aquarium of a living coral reef.

With so much to do on site, you might not even want to venture out. Standing bayside, next to the pool, Tiki Bar, or grounds gives you a view that you’ll never forget. Admire a menagerie of wildlife, from parrotfish, tarpon and lobster in the lagoon, to egrets, herons and pelicans among the mangroves. And don’t be surprised to see an iguana perched amid the resort’s dense vegetation. Palm trees, hammocks and tiki torches dot the landscape, while a sparkling pool and hot tub invite you to relax.

For an energetic atmosphere, turn to Barnacle Barney’s Tiki Bar & Grill, an open-air tiki bar and grill overlooking the on-site marina. The tiki bar and grill offers two TVs, beer, wine, frozen drinks and a full menu, including local favorites from both land and sea. Every evening, Barnacle Barney’s hosts a “sunset celebration” punctuated by a cannon salute as the sun touches the horizon.

Both water sports and fishing are only steps away. You can rent kayaks, boats and jet skis on site or charter a fishing boat for a thrilling day at sea.

The Hammocks at Marathon features three different accommodations - studios, one- and two-bedroom villas. Each comes equipped with the comforts of home such as cable TV, coffee maker, hairdryer, iron/ironing board, electronic safe and a microwave. Studios feature a small refrigerator but no kitchen. One- and two-bedroom villas come with full kitchens for your convenience, while all accommodations give you the opportunity to enjoy a balcony or porch. A laundry room is available on each floor with washers/dryers available for guests to use free of charge.

BOAT SLIP RESERVATIONS: A limited number of boat slips are available exclusively to Bluegreen Vacation Club owners with confirmed villa reservations at The Hammocks at Marathon. Owners click here for details. Owners must reserve boat slips in advance, subject to availability, using Vacation Points. Boat slips must be reserved together with villa accommodations, which must also be reserved using Vacation Points.

Surfrider Beach Club

Note: This resort has limited availability and requires a full-week stay with check-in on Saturday.

Breaking waves and the distant sounds of seagulls are your wake-up calls in this island paradise. Join shell collectors at dawn to discover the overnight deposits left by the sea, then let your cares melt away beneath the shimmering sun along pristine white sand beaches.

Spend your day playing in the turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico or take a break from the beach with a game of tennis or a dip in the pool. Rent a bike from the resort to explore the island or ride into town for an afternoon of shopping and dining at outdoor cafes. When you return, you can relax in the hot tub then grill some fresh Florida snapper or grouper for the whole family.

At the end of the day, take a front row seat on the beach to view one of Sanibel Island’s most prized attractions – the magnificent, world-famous sunsets.
