Need a Luxury kid friendly resort in Florida for April

We intend to take a last minute trip first or second week in April to Florida but can't seem to find the perfect place to go. Would like something nice, with great beach location and kid friendly -- have an active seven year old boy- Good food would help, too. Any suggestions? We have air miles so could fly anywhere in Florida.

Try the Marriott or Hilton on Marco Island. Great places to stay and also family friendly. Great places to eat and all are family friendly--whether you choose casual or upscale dining. Both places are on the beach. March has a great beach--wide and long--you do not feel the crowds, even in peak season. Closest airport is Fort Myers although you can also check Fort Lauderdale or Miami.

Things my kids like to do: shell, swim, fish, kayak, jet ski, go to Jack's Lookout for a soda and watch the fishing boats come in; golf; build sand castles; got to a movie; get ice cream, and biking on the island is great. The island bike shop with deliver and pick up.

We just returned from the Boca Beach Resort--Beach Club and WOW. This has it all. It is a split resort; the older half is very typical of the old, grand hotels of it's time; has FAB restaurants in it, including sushi and a wonderful ice cream place that also serves super meals; fantastic spa, too. Then, the new resort is a short shuttle ride away and it is awesome. Very trendy, but comfortable--impeccably clean and the food is outstanding. The pools are beautiful, heated, and looking out at the ocean. The beach is gorgeous with just the right amount of shells to keep your active 7 year old busy. The rooms are delightful--clean, clean, clean; gorgeous new design furnishings, quiet and the most fabulous showers. I highly recommend this gorgeous Waldorf Astoria property.

There was a great mix of people here, from retirees, to young families, to families with teens, as well as young couples. I can't say enough about the beautiful location, the amazing fresh food, and the impeccable service. It is worth every penny.

Happy travels!
