For family

Hyatt Regency Coconut Point

This hotel offers facilities for the perfect combination for family-fun moments and an indulgent slice of ‘you’ time.

The lowdown...

Located between Fort Myers and Naples, this luscious hotel is home to a water-world adventure of three-story high waterslides, a lagoon pool and a lazy river. Hit the Gulf Coast private beach to build sandcastles together, and dive into the glistening waters. Kids will be over the moon when they make new friends at Camp Coconut. Children aged 3 – 12 can join in walks along adventure trails, playful pool competitions, arts and crafts. While they’re busy, take time out for you – soak up the sunshine and swing some clubs on the 18-hole golf course; then rejuvenate your senses in the Stillwater Spa. 

Insider's tip...

Grab a bite to eat at the casual Corkscrew pool bar and grill, and take your pick from cocktail concoctions and local craft beer. Enjoy service to your poolside lounger, whilst the kids splash around in the adventure pool.

For the beach

Sandpearl Resort

Holiday in Clearwater for an extraordinary beach break – voted one of the best beaches in the USA. You’ll want to spend every hour of every day on these shores.  

The lowdown...

You will be welcomed with a complimentary glass of fizz and mesmerising views out to the horizon when you stay at this luxury resort-meets-stylish beachside haven. Sway in a hammock, park on a beach chair or rent out a cabana. Order from the Tate Island Grill for service to your prime beach spot. In an energetic mood? Break your lethargy with a stroll along powder white sands or join in a game of beach volleyball. When you want to play on the water, rent jet-skis and paddleboards to hang out with the locals, take a short walk to the lively Pier 60 and Clearwater’s new Beach Walk.

Insider’s tip… 

Catch a crimson sunset as you relax by the beach firepit. Gather round with marshmallows for family s’mores nights. They’re a bundle of evening fun.

For affordable luxury

Waldorf Astoria Orlando

Immerse yourself in utter opulence with elegant dining, a pearl of a golf course and a luxury poolside cabana purlieu. 

The lowdown...

Marble flooring and dashes of gold – this sparkling hotel is set in the heart of Disney, without cheesy touches. This place oozes grandeur, but casual dress is more than acceptable for your stay. Soak up the glam poolside experience with its palm trees, sun loungers and chic rental cabanas. From here you can see the Rees Jones-designed golf course, a picturesque place to make your play. On site, the glossy Waldorf Astoria spa is a lavish space for soothing massages and calming therapies – just sit back and relax. Once you work up an appetite, or finally rise from your massage bed, choose from the hotel’s tantalising eateries for a night of fine-dining.  

Insider's tip...

Try the slurp-worthy Prosecco Popsicle, Aquamarine’s must-try cocktail. This all-day pool bar also offers a scrumptious menu of small bites and bigger dishes, such as tuna tacos and Florida grouper fish sandwiches.

Universal’s Cabana Bay

Retro-themed ostentatious, this hotel gives off funky vibes. It is also surrounded by some of Florida’s best theme parks.

For a budget

Sirata Beach Resort

Choose this Florida break to fit a tidy budget – with a tropical beachfront location to boot.

Savour the open space and sweeping beach landscape during your stay at the Sirata. Create a team and play some beach volleyball. When you’re not relaxing, join in with a round of beach chess, a game of Ping Pong or discounted water sports. Make the most of the hotel’s three swimming pools and three signature restaurants – including two of the best beach bars in town, Harry’s Beach Bar and Rum Runner’s Bar and Grille. The latter hosts local live bands every afternoon and evening. Later, join in the trivia nights or sing your heart out to karaoke.

Keep your eyes peeled for the weekly bonfires at the firepit on the beach and cosy up for an evening under the stars.

Best for unbeatable views

The Fontainebleau Miami

One of Miami’s hottest hotels, this place has natural views to gasp over. Keep your eyes peeled, you might spy a celebrity, too. 

The lowdown...

The sparkling Atlantic Ocean calls your name from the platforms of the iconic Fontainebleau. Catch a beaming sunrise and tread across the sandy shores for views of the Atlantic’s turquoise waters. Enjoy the 20-acre setting along Miami Beach, complete with an oasis of pool cabanas and day beds. Dine in a tantalising selection of 11 restaurants, then experience mixology magic in a choice of bars and lounges. For Miami party vibes, hit the floor at the acclaimed and exclusive LIV nightclub – without leaving the hotel. If you want to carry on relishing the adults’ playground, the Kids’ Club will keep the little ones busy with plenty of activities. For night owls, Fontainebleau even offers a kids’ night out programme until 11 pm and additional baby-sitting services.

Insider's tip...

When you want to nip into the buzz of the city, have a cab called for you. There’s always more to explore in Miami.
