Riviera Beach, Florida
Palm Beach Marriott Singer Island Beach Resort And Spa
Tower of Family Fun
What it is
A 190-room condo resort right on the sand, with everything you could want for your kiddos and yourself, including a luxe spa and a de facto waterpark on-site.
What it isn't
Pecking. Four restaurants on the premises include everything from an ocean-facing tiki bar to a Mexican cantina set along a lagoon—and renowned for its margaritas.
What we think
The best part about staying in a 20-story seafront resort? You’ll end up with a better view than the seagulls. We also love that rooms here are more akin to your own private condo, with full kitchens, washers and dryers that ensure your family’s total comfort (no more sand in those sea socks!) and nautically themed interiors that inject just the right amount of turquoise into their palette of cloud whites and sand tans. (Your kiddos will want to keep an eye out for turtles in the decor—meant to honor your neighbors that nest here every year). We recommend the 2 Bedroom Condos for a spacious living room complete with a balcony and a prime panorama of either the ocean or the Intracoastal Waterway. Take that, seagulls.
You're here because
You’re bringing the kids, and the pool scene here rivals any waterpark you’ve ever been to, including a lagoon water slide, waterfall tumbling over a grotto, and zero entry pool for toddlers. (Bonus: A kids club with a Loggerhead Marinelife Center partnership, so they can learn all about helping save sea turtles while they’re unplugged from school).
You’ve never been one to indulge in a ginormous breakfast before swimming, but here at the Riviera Beach Restaurant, you simply can’t help yourself. The crab cakes and eggs benedict is calling to you. What’s that saying? “When in Florida?” Indeed.

Facing the Atlantic Ocean on Singer Island, just north of West Palm Beach. You don’t want to miss the Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens in Palm Beach proper, where the artists monolithic works stand watchward over a jungly garden of pecky cypress, cycads and some 250 rare species of palms.
