    One Ocean Resort & Spa
    Atlantic Beach, FL
    • Free WiFi

    4.5-star Hotel Class
    • Free WiFi

    Travelers say that One Ocean Resort & Spa goes above and beyond when it comes to customer service. Valets remember your name and room number when you return from a busy day of sightseeing, and the bartender in Azurea's lounge has started mixing your favorite drink before you've even had a chance to order it. On the whole, visitors say the staff members here incredibly friendly and helpful. On-site amenities at this property include a spa (with a varied treatment menu), a 24-hour fitness center, a pool and a restaurant that dishes out fresh seafood. When it comes to the accommodations, all 193 guest rooms and suites boast floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook the Atlantic Ocean, though standard rooms have limited views. Modern conveniences like flat-screen televisions, Keurig coffee makers, Molton Brown toiletries and Wi-Fi access come standard in all rooms and suites. Keep in mind, there is a nightly $38 resort fee on top of the room rate (which guests bemoaned). The resort fee covers morning coffee and tea, in-room snacks and bottled water, access to two bicycles for two hours a day, and beach equipment like chairs and an umbrella. The hotel also charges a nightly $30 valet parking fee; no self-parking is available. You'll find the One Ocean Resort & Spa in Atlantic Beach, Florida, about 15 miles due east of downtown Jacksonville.

    Sawgrass Marriott Golf Resort & Spa
    Ponte Vedra Beach, FL
    • Free Parking

    4.0-star Hotel Class
    • Free Parking

    Sawgrass Marriott Golf Resort & Spa's main allure is its two championship golf courses, 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 two 18-hole golf courses: Dye's Valley Course and The Stadium Course. Sawgrass Marriott Golf Resort 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 property and cool off in one of the three outdoor pools. (Another can also be found at the Cabana Beach Club.) Previous guests are fond of this Marriott resort for its wealth of offerings, but despite the property's ample golf and spa space and immaculately manicured grounds, some recent guests said the accommodations could benefit from a facelift. Still, rooms and suites here come equipped with minifridges and flat-screen LCD TVs. And previous visitors describe the resort's staff as "pleasant" and "attentive." You'll find this Ponte Vedra Beach resort about 35 southwest of Jacksonville International Airport. If you're a Marriott Bonvoy member, you can also enjoy collecting or cashing in reward points and perks here.
