Family Package at Naples, FL Ritz makes luxury attainable

I love the Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort. I spent a weekend down there just shy of a year ago, and it's become my mission in life to get back there. Until that happens, though, you may ant to see it for yourself. Even if you don't play golf (personally, I hate the game), there is plenty to enjoy.

The Family Summer Package, which starts at $239 a night, is available from the first day of May to the last of October this year, and it comes with enough perks to make that seem like pocket change. In addition to the roof over your head, you'll get breakfast for four, a free kids' menu meal with each adult entrée you purchase, a $50 resort credit and a $50 gift card which is good at the resort's retail shops. A similar packages is available at the golf resort's sister property (which is on the beach) for $299 a night.

I know ... free meal offers make me skeptical, too. What do you get? At the Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort, you'll have breakfast at Lemonia, which, I assure you, is outstanding. Also, make sure you get over to the spa at the beach resort. I received the best massage of my life there as part of the Elements treatment. Don't miss it.

While you hit the links (36 holes in total), your kids can take advantage of the Nature's Wonders program, which is on the beach resort property. It's an environmentally-focused program that is conducted by a team of certified Master Naturalists who can give some great insights on Florida wildlife. The Ritz-Carlton does take its environmental seriously, as I found while participating in the "Giveback Getaway" program last summer.

If you need to dash off for a few days this summer, the Family Summer Package gives you an affordable option to have an upscale experience. My only hope is that I get back there before you do (I miss the place).
