For a terrific place to relax in the sun, try the Delray Beach Marriott, in Delray Beach, Florida. The town of Delray Beach is loaded with all kinds of shops and restaurants all open late. There are many free parking lots in the town center as well as valet parking. The Marriott is a wonderful hotel kept spotless and with very friendly & helpful staff. They have music and a dance floor in the evenings and you can get your favorite drink and snacks as well. There's a main pool area and an adult only pool. The beach is right across the street. Boca Raton & Palm Beach are only minutes away for more shopping and dining experiences.
Delray is my favorite place to visit in southeast FL. I have only visited the Marriott during the day, but it does look like a great hotel -- located on the beach, but also within a short walk of all Delray's great restaurants and shops. The lobby area is very well done and the hotel definitely has a "first class" feel to it.
Another great resort is the Ocean Pointe up in West Palm Beach. You have the pools onsite and the ocean there as well. Food and shopping are close to the resort. This is a time share but also allows weekly accomedations. It is about an hour away from Ft. Lauderdale were you can go to the Hard Rock located in Hollywood Florida, Casino and night life.
