I believe I had the best view of Marco Beach from my 10th floor corner unit at The Charter Club of Marco Beach. When we first arrived at the resort and opened the sliding doors to the unscreened balcony I knew I would spend most of my time right there relaxing. Since my wife is a sunbather, she was just an elevator ride away from the white sandy beach while I sat on the balcony and took in the panoramic views. At night if you are lucky enough you can catch a spectacular view of a passing thunderstorm and watch it fade away as the thunder rolls over the Gulf of Mexico and seems to travel on forever. Our two teenagers that went along took no time at all to meet new friends and spend the week sharing adv...Read More

Best Things Nearby:There are all kinds of restaurants nearby from pizza to fine dining. Across the street is a huge water sports store for all you aquatic needs.

By far the best place to eat seafood is at the Snook Inn. They have expanded their seating area to accommodate for more people. Thursday and Friday night are all the seafood you can eat. It costs about $20 to stuff yourself as needed. The inn has boat slips for boats to dock for a meal. There are other restaurants that we like to visit also. The Sand Bar offers plenty of food at reasonable prices from $6 to $15. It has a friendly small bar atmosphere where you can watch TV or play pool. There are plenty of fast food places like McDonalds, Burger King, Subway, and pizzerias. Put all this together and you can eat on a budget and still have money left over for those quaint dinners for two. We like...Read More
