first time trip with two young children

we are flying out of Miami on 23rd June and have 6 days before that to spend in Florida. we have two children 4 & 2 and we're wondering where the best base/beach resort would be?

we essentially want to relax and unwind, but want to ensure the children are entertained.

a trip to Disney has not been entirely dismissed however we would only want to spend one day there. we have the option to fly into any Florida airport but need to depart from Miami to back England

any advise is appreciated

I'll let others suggest a place to stay, but Disney is 4 hours one-way from Miami. It is not a trip for 1 day.

Children ages 4 and 2 will be amused enough with a pool and a beach (and mom and Dad). Are you asking about children's clubs where someone likks after them for you?

Do you want sunrises and surf? Or sunsets and pure white sands? High rise full service hotels full of people? Or a 2 bedroom Condo on the beach?

Have you considered a Cruise?

pool and beach are perfect, sunsets and pure white sands.

full service hotel preferred as we will have the option of the in-house children's club too

Sunsets and white sand are not near Miami. You need to look at Sarasota and Tampa Bay.

sunsets and white d=sads are the guf coast, will you mind the drive? Or can you fly into TPA or SRQ?

While some resorts will have kids clubs, they are not a standard thing at US hotels really. Look at south Seas resort Captiva. If you want somehting near Miami, try Key biscayne.

If you want good kids clubs, try a cruise
