Hi. Same beach. One big continuous beach on Marco. Very close to each other. Depends on what you're looking for. Probably a bit more family friendly at the Marriott. Great restaurants at the Marriott. Great poolside/beachside place called Quinn's. Live music. Marco Beach Resort is very upscale. Dress code in the lobby. High end, expensive restaurant inside (Sal e Pepe). Nice beachside small bar to grab a drink when you're not dressed appropriately.

Can someone tell me specifically more about the lobby dress code at the Marriott? We are traveling there with our kids next month. Thanks!

Hi. Responded to your separate post, too. The message I posted prior is referring to the dress code at the Marco Beach Resort which is a separate resort/hotel from the Marco Island Marriott.

There is no dress code at the Marriott. They prefer and are very diplomatic about wearing some sort of cover up for adults in bathing suits in the lobby, but no one does a flying tackle or escorts you out if you forget or are unaware. Kids walk thru in bathing suits all the time. We much prefer the Marriott. It's a little more laid back than the Marco Beach. Have a great time.
