Ponte Vedra, FL (PRWEB) February 12, 2013
If commercials on TV and travel advertising would be believed, spring break is a time for college students to hang out on the beach. However, one Ponte Vedra Beach resort has teamed up with AARP to show young spring break-goers how to really celebrate the warm weather.
The AARP Spring Break Package at the Sawgrass Marriott Golf Resort & Spa invites members of the popular senior program to enjoy a complimentary breakfast for two at the Café on the Green and deluxe resort accommodations. The deal, valid from March 1 until June 30, 2013, starts at just $169 per night and comes to a 35 percent discount off the normal package price.
Saving some money on the hotel package means seniors need not hesitate to tee off at one of the eight golf courses at this Ponte Vedra Beach resort. Named the 2013 North American Golf Resort of the Year by the International Association of Golf Tour Operators (IAGTO), the Sawgrass Marriott Golf Resort & Spa features two TPC courses, The Players Stadium Course and Dye’s Valley Course, as well as six others for a total of 153 championship-quality holes.
Once golfers have their fill of manicured greens and challenging courses, they will return to the resort near Jacksonville, where they can unwind in deluxe accommodations. Each one of the Ponte Vedra Beach resort guest rooms features a private balcony overlooking the scenic surrounding area. Plush beds will carry guests off to sleep at night (or a mid-afternoon nap after a round of golf), and 32-inch HD televisions offer plenty of entertainment any time of day.
Travelers not interested in golf will still find plenty to do at the resort. The Spa at Sawgrass features a wide variety of health and beauty services including massages, wraps, manicures and pedicures and paraffin hand treatments.
Regardless of where guests decide to spend their spring break, they should be sure to stop by Café on the Green in the morning for a complimentary breakfast. An expansive buffet of breakfast favorites is complemented by stunning views of the surrounding area. While guests dine on fluffy eggs, fresh fruit, crispy bacon and other traditional morning treats, they will enjoy the greenery and panoramic views of TPC at Sawgrass Stadium.
Board a direct flight to Jacksonville International Airport (JAX) or drive to the 63-acre resort to escape the freezing temperatures. The Sawgrass Marriott Golf Resort & Spa is only 15 miles from Jacksonville, 17 miles from historic St. Augustine and it was selected as the 2013 North American Golf Resort of the Year by IAGTO (International Association of Golf Tour Operators).
Seniors 55 years and better can reserve the AARP Spring Break Package at the Sawgrass Marriott Golf Resort & Spa today to show college seniors how to truly enjoy life.
