U.S. News Review

The Sawgrass Marriott's main allure is its world-renowned golf course, so if you're not a fan of the links, this may not be the Ponte Vedra Beach haven for you. Golf aficionados can perfect their swing at the 18-hole championship golf courses: Dye's Valley and THE PLAYERS Stadium. The Sawgrass Marriott also offers a 25,000-square-foot luxury spa for guests more interested in pampering than putting. Hop on the free shuttle bus for a day at the Cabana Beach Club, or stick around the Sawgrass and cool off in one of the four outdoor pools. Previous guests are fond of this Marriott hotel for its wealth of offerings, but despite the resort's ample golf and spa space and immaculately manicured grounds, recent guests say the guest rooms could benefit from a facelift. Still, accommodations here come equipped with private balconies and flat-screen LCD TVs. And previous visitors say the staff here is pleasant and attentive. You'll find this Ponte Vedra Beach hotel about 35 southwest of Jacksonville International Airport. If you're a Marriott Rewards member, you can also enjoy collecting or cashing in reward points and perks here.

“Here you can laze about in the highly regarded spa or by one of four swimming pools, get active out on a golf course, or fish in a freshwater lake or pond.”
