Golfers and families favor this service-oriented, 300-acre tropical resort with jumbo-size rooms and world-class amenities, including a majestic lagoon pool (winding waterslide and lazy river included), an acclaimed three-story spa and fitness center, and celeb chef Michael Mina's Bourbon Steak restaurant. Add two Raymond Floyd designed golf courses, four clay tennis courts overseen by the elite Cañas Tennis Academy, and a 117-slip marina with an additional eight tennis
courts, and you've got an active, discerning vacationer's dream. To compensate for its location in residential Aventura, the resort has a private beach club a five-minute shuttle ride away. The lush resort and club was conceptualized on the back of a cocktail napkin in 1967 by founder and real estate developer Donald Soffer. Rooms are decorated in calming tan hues and equipped with a dazzling array of amenities. South Florida's leading shopping destination Aventura Mall is right across the street. Formerly part of Fairmont Hotels, the Turnberry joined Marriott's distinctive Autograph Collection portfolio in 2012.
