Summer Starts and Ends at Sanibel Harbour Marriott® Resort & Spa

July 4th Guests Invited to Return for Labor Day Weekend With Sanibel Vacation Package

FT. MYERS, FL--(Marketwire - June 11, 2010) -  Sanibel Harbour Marriott® Resort & Spa invites patriotic citizens everywhere to a two-part American summertime party this July 4th and Labor Day weekend. With rates starting at $97 all summer long, including a special 15 percent discount for Florida residents, the summer holidays bring cocktails, contests and cool tunes to Marriott Fort Myers.

Karaoke is the best way to celebrate Independence Day by singing front and center at Fort Myers beach resort where the first prize walks away with a valuable resort credit. For those who would prefer to celebrate off stage, a plethora of activities are available throughout the weekend including volleyball tournaments, dive-in movies, waterslides and bean bag toss contests while listening to the tunes of great live bands. Take a break from the action on the 3rd of July and enjoy classic American favorites on the pool deck buffet. Forget the Fort Myers beach restaurants; $20 per adult and $10 per child (ages six-12) buys all the hamburgers, chicken quarters and old-fashioned macaroni salad any American could want.

Following an action-packed day, guests set sail on a fireworks dinner cruise aboard the Sanibel Princess, the Fort Myers resort's 100-foot private yacht. The cruises depart at 7:00 p.m. on July 3rd and 4th, offering everything from Jumbo Gulf Water Shrimp and Snow Crab Claw Clusters to Petite Filet and Maine Lobster Ravioli. The cruise is $90 per person inclusive of tax, service and port charges.

For guests who would prefer to dine on land, there is a mouth-watering special at one of the top restaurants in Fort Myers beach. The Tarpon House offers a land and sea assortment all weekend long. A delectable poolside buffet themed after the original 13 colonies offers samplings of everything from Lobster Rolls from M.A. and Crab Cakes from M.D. to Philly Cheese Steaks  from P.A., Baby Back Ribs from N.C. and Peach Cobbler from Ga. The July 4th sideboard is $35 per adult and $20 per child, while children under five eat free.

Fireworks-cruises are also available each night at 8:00 p.m., where guests enjoy the colorful evening sky cruising on a Captiva Cruises' catamaran. Cruise-goers complete the evening with red, white and blue sundaes at Palm Court Bakery while Uncle Sam roams the resort sharing U.S. flags with guests.

And best of all, the fun continues through the summer as July 4th guests will receive a special invitation to return for the Labor Day weekend. This exclusive "bounce back" package starts at $129, representing 20 percent off prevailing rates and including a $50 resort credit. The secret booking code will be given to guests at the resort during the July 4th weekend. With this enticing offer, vacationers cannot find a better reason to start and end the summer at this resort near Sanibel Beach.
