MARCO ISLAND, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 06/13/14 -- Whether travelers are looking to undo the trauma of one of the most fearsome winters on record, or they just need a summertime escape from life's normal ups and downs, the Marco Island Marriott Beach Resort, Golf Club & Spa has the cure. Located on Marco Island, the number 1 island in the United States according to Trip Advisor, the hotel's Paradise Rx Package puts the clement temperatures, dancing waves and luxurious amenities of this Florida Gulf Coast resort at the sandal-clad feet of its guests. And that's only the beginning.
Available through September 27, 2014, the Paradise Rx Package begins with a view. The Gulf, after all, is one of the defining features of this Marco Island beach resort, and gazing upon it feels positively therapeutic. That's why the package includes accommodations within a Gulf View Room equipped with a private balcony, plush bedding and state-of-the-art technology.
But considering the surroundings, guests won't want to spend too long in their rooms. The package, after all, includes one beach tote loaded up with all the necessary goods for enjoying a day under the sun. Visitors can unwind along the hotel's three miles of white-sand beaches, complimentary bag in tow, and sunbathe, swim or observe dolphins, sea turtles and birds frolicking in the watery beyond.
Of course, paradise involves more than natural beauty, no matter how profound it may be. To that end, this package also includes a few manmade perks. Guests can drop in at Quinn's on the Beach, the hotel's casual seaside eatery, to enjoy four Vitamin C Cocktails (two per night), an infusion that complements the hefty dose of Vitamin D visitors get while relaxing on the beach of this Naples luxury hotel.
One of the many factors to distinguish this property from other Marco Island hotels is its world-class spa, and the package ensures that guests can experience it as part of their paradisiacal renewal. Two Oxygen Cocktail Facials are included in the package to uncover luminous skin and send visitors back home refreshed. The treatment uses pressurized oxygen to deliver specially selected serums to each client depending on his/her needs.
Travelers who wish to tap the salubrious powers of the Paradise Rx Package may use the promotional code ES2 when booking online or by phone at 1-800-438-4373. Rates start at $329 per night, and a two-night minimum stay is required.

Docker offers a new, lightweight approach to application portability. Applications are shipped using a common container format and managed with a high-level API. Their processes run within isolated namespaces that abstract the operating environment independently of the distribution, versions, network setup, and other details of this environment. This "containerization" has often been nicknamed "the new virtualization." But containers are more than lightweight virtual machines. Beyond their small...

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, a...
