Family-Friendly Florida Resorts that Are Worth the Splurge

pool at the Club Wyndham at Majestic Sun Resort.

Florida has some of the most beautiful beaches in the US, the world’s most amazing theme parks and great year-round weather. It’s why I regularly pack up my family and travel to the Sunshine State from our home in Texas. When we visit, we like to stay in a full-service luxury Florida resort where we can relax and reconnect. When choosing where to stay, I look for must-have amenities such as bungalows and bunk beds, engaging play areas and supervised childcare for date night or a day at the spa.

My fellow SheBuysTravel contributors are also regular Florida visitors who’ve stayed in many of the state’s luxury resorts. Our top picks for a 5-star vacay include:

  • Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge
  • Hawks Cay in the Florida Keys
  • Hilton Sandestin Beach Golf Resort & Spa
  • The Breakers in Palm Beach
  • Boca Raton Resort & Club

We profile each of these family resorts plus others that are extra special. We’ve grouped the resorts by location – Panhandle, East Coast, West Coast, Florida Keys, Orlando and Disney – to help you in your search. And we’ve added an approximate per-night price for a Spring 2025 room that sleeps 4, exclusive of taxes, fees and other extras.

Following is our curated list of the top luxury family resorts in Florida.
