Steve and I have different ideas when it comes to identifying a marina as a resort.  I immediately think of places like South Seas Plantation on Captiva Island or the Vinoy Renaissance in St. Petersburg or the Pink Shell in Fort Myers.  Steve thinks of Roland & Mary Ann Martin's  Marina & Resort in Clewiston.   

Roland and his wife Mary Ann bought the fishing shack marina and some vacant property in 1981 with the idea to build the best bass fishing destination on Lake Okeechobee. Today the resort includes motels, condos, a restaurant with Tiki bar & grill, a marina store, a tackle store, airboat rides, marine service center and an RV park along with their professional fishing guide service.  This place is a bass fisherman's paradise.  Even the Christmas decorations (which are still up) feature bass!

Resort:  (noun) a place that is a popular destination for vacations or recreation or frequented for a particular purpose.
