Courtyard by Marriott Jacksonville Beach Oceanfront
Travel Blogs from Jacksonville Beach
Arrived in Jacksonville Beach on Wednesday afternoon, in time to meet Ken and Vicky at our favorite Beach place, Cruisers Grill. Been going there since we discovered the place in 1997, when we owned a SMALL condo on Jacksonville Beach. Unfortunately, like a lot of other things, an ownership change, and the "legendary" marinated chicken soft tacos …
We made it to Jacksonville, Florida, Thursday, July 3rd, after a real nice evening in Gulfport, Mississippi. I definitely did much better on the room accommodations, landing us just a few blocks from the beach. We used the limited time we had left in the day to walk the beach and then found a great little Italian restaurant called Salute for dinner. All in all, I'd say a much better evening than the previous night!

Friday November 22nd: Glorious day in Hanna Park. You must stay at Hanna Park!! Leah had recommended it and here you get it all. Feels like you're in a tropical jungle. You have the Atlantic Ocean on one side of the park and a beautiful lake on the other. Nature...Nature...Nature. Thank you God for the wonderful world you created. You are so majestic!!!

TravelPod Member ReviewsCourtyard by Marriott Jacksonville Beach Oceanfront
Nice, newer Oceanfront property on the extreme north end of Jacksonville Beach. At 16th Ave., North, it is a long way from downtown Jax Beach and from the excellent restaurants in Atlantic Beach. Difficult to walk. Nice pool area, tiki bar, casual restaurant and small bar, quiet. Parking was definitely an issue - but overflow is allowed in the Fairfield Inn across the street. Renovation of the lobby/restaurant scheduled to be done by April 1, 2014. Looks like that will be a major improvement.
