Here with family in Naples this weekend. We drove over to Marco Island to see Crystal Shores, since we've never been there. We heard so many good things about it, but when we left we were so disappointed. The grounds seemed so small. It felt like a hotel atmosphere to us, with all the high rises. It didn't help that all the construction on the new building was going on. We then went over to the Marriott hotel nearby. It was beautiful and much more like a resort atmosphere. The Concierge informed us it is turning into a JW Marriott soon, which will mean an increase in rates/points. Tomorrow we are moving to the Marriott resort at Sanibel for 5 nights. I'm sure President's week will bring all the families out. Will be nice to see Sanibel/Captiva and catch up with some old college friends.
