Marco Island Marriott Beach Resort Re-Launches Fertile Turtle Package

Available During Sea Turtle Mating Season Only; Marco Island Marriott Resort Entices Couples to Conceive while Package Proceeds Benefit the Conservancy of Southwest Florida

    /24-7PressRelease/ - MARCO ISLAND, FL, June 19, 2008 - Due to the popularity of the 2007 program, Marco Island Marriott Beach Resort is happy to reintroduce the Fertile Turtle South Florida Vacation Package which entices couples to conceive while on vacation.

As sea turtles are known as a symbol of fertility,* lovebirds have the opportunity to watch sea turtles eggs hatch, right on the resort's very own three-mile stretch of beach, while trying to fertilize an egg of their own. As protecting the natural environment of the local endangered species is important to the resort, a portion of the package proceeds will benefit the Sea Turtle Monitoring & Protection Project of the Conservancy for Southwest Florida. This grow-the-family getaway, which is only available during sea turtle mating season (now through October 31), starts at $419 per couple, per night and includes: **

• Deluxe Marco Island accommodations in a Gulf-view guestroom with king-size bed, private balcony and a do not disturb sign
• Red clover and raspberry tea, which have natural pregnancy-enhancing qualities
• Couples massage with Chaste berry and fertility-promoting aromatherapy
• Authentic Balinese commemorative photo album to capture the memories of this special vacation

Marco Island Marriott Beach Resort loves to hear the pitter patter of little feet, be it turtle or infant, so as a special gift for couples who conceive during their stay, the Naples beach hotel will provide a complimentary three-night stay for a return visit. Proud parents only need to provide a birth certificate and proof of recent hotel stay, within eight to 10 months of baby's arrival.

Committed to conserving the natural habitat of the Marco Island sea turtles, Marco Island Marriott Beach Resort takes every precaution to protect the endangered and vulnerable species. To ensure their safety on property, the hotel has all exterior bulbs fitted with special yellow covers to reduce the amount of light emitted and guests are asked to close their privacy drapes at night as light on the beach can disorient turtle hatchlings. These safety measures also create perfect mood lighting for canoodling couples.
