Blake Marvin
Andrew Zimmern, Bizarre Foods
My favorite beach hotel is … "the Biltmore in Santa Barbara, CA -- a class act all the way, great bungalows and superb beaches." Don Wildman, host of Off Limits, adds "I just stayed at the Four Seasons (Biltmore). If I can afford to go back in the High Season, I’m there."
Nick Groff, Ghost Adventures
My favorite beach hotel is … "The Ritz Carlton, Laguna Nigel."
The Breakers Palm Beach
Jordan Hembrough, Toy Hunter
My favorite beach hotel is … "The Breakers Palm Beach -- one of the finest hotels I have ever stayed in. If you can, ask for a room on the water and have the waves lull you to sleep!"
Outrigger Hotels and Resorts
Adam Richman, Best Sandwich in America
My favorite beach hotels are … "the Outrigger Reef on Oahu (pictured), and Caribe Hilton in San Juan, and the Don Piedro in the greater Tampa Florida area."
Hyatt Hotels
Steve DiShiavi, The Dead Files
My favorite beach hotel is … "the Hyatt Regency in Cancun."
The Royal Hawaiian Waikiki 
Laurence and Sally Martin, Baggage Battles
My favorite beach hotel is … "the Royal Hawaiian Waikiki. We stayed at the Royal Hawaiian for a major birthday in our first and only visit there. Fabulous historical hotel -- just the type we love!"
Capim Santos

My favorite beach hotel is … "Capim Santos in Trancoso, Brazil."
