2 Innisbrook Resort & Golf Club
Innisbrook Resort & Golf Club
36750 U.S. 19 N
Palm Harbor, FL 34684

A massive pool complex with a 15-foot waterslide and a sandy beach are part of the allure of this sprawling resort. But 72 holes of golf, including the challenging Copperhead course, are the real magnets. Bald eagles and herons are sometimes seen on the grounds, which are beautifully maintained. Guest suites are in 24 two- and three-story lodges tucked among the trees between golf courses. Some of the roomy suites have balconies or patios. Innisbrook has enough restaurants and lounges to make it self-contained, though there are other dining options in the area. Pros:

4 Plantation Inn & Golf Resort
Plantation Inn & Golf Resort
9301 W. Fort Island Trail
Crystal River, FL 34429

On the shore of Kings Bay, this two-story plantation-style resort is on 232 acres near nature preserves and rivers. Although the resort's exterior looks like that of a huge Southern mansion, the rooms are more comfortable than palatial, with blond-wood furniture and wall-to-wall carpeting. Some rooms have patios. Condos and villas have views of the golf course. The Plantation is popular among upscale, older yuppies. Pros:

good location; perfect for nature lovers.

Cons:

stuffy vibe; basic rooms. www.plantationinn.com. 126 rooms, 2 suites, 5 condos, 12 villas. In-room: a/c, kitchen (some), Internet, Wi-Fi. In-hotel: restaurants, bars, golf course, pool, tennis courts, water sports. Credit cards accepted.

5 Renaissance Vinoy Resort & Golf Club
Renaissance Vinoy Resort & Golf Club
501 5th Ave. NE
St. Petersburg, FL 33701

Built in 1925, making it the same vintage as the Don CeSar, the Vinoy is a luxury resort in a quiet, quaint neighborhood. Thoughtful renovations keep its yesteryear glamour and place on the National Register of Historic Places. Some of the units are cramped by today's standards, so ask for one of the spacious rooms for more comfort. Those on the bay side have better views of Tampa Bay. A tiny bay-side beach several blocks away is good for strolling (but not swimming). Transportation is provided to better beaches 30 minutes away. Other offerings include access to a Ron Garl-designed golf course with a stunning clubhouse, an expansive marina, and pool attendants who deliver drinks. Pros:

charming property; friendly service; close to downtown museums.

Cons:

pricey; not on the beach. www.vinoyrenaissanceresort.com. 345 rooms, 15 suites. In-room: Internet. In-hotel: restaurants, bars, golf course, pools, tennis courts, gym, spa, laundry facilities. Credit cards accepted.

6 Ritz-Carlton, Sarasota
Ritz-Carlton, Sarasota
1111 Ritz-Carlton Dr.
Sarasota, FL 34236

Developers like to say that this hotel is circus magnate John Ringling's realized dream, and it certainly has a style the impresario would have coveted. Fine artwork and fresh-cut flowers decorate marble-floored hallways. Rooms have marble bathrooms, and private balconies with views of the bay, the marina, or the downtown skyline. A private 18-hole Tom Fazio-designed golf course is 12 mi northeast of the property on the Braden River. A European-style spa and guest-and-members-only beach facility on Lido Key, about 4 mi away, make this city resort full-service. Vernona restaurant serves regional organic cuisine and overlooks yachts in the marina. Pros:

Ritz-style glitz; lots of amenities.

Cons:

long distance to golf course; not on the beach. www.ritzcarlton.com/resorts/Sarasota. 266 rooms, 30 suites. In-room: safe, Wi-Fi. In-hotel: restaurants, bars, golf course, pool, tennis courts, gym, spa, children's programs, some pets allowed. Credit cards accepted.
