There are now a huge number of gated communities in Orlando providing answers to where to stay in Orlando. Furthermore, each year several more crop up resulting in even more choice. This means accommodation can be found at ever increasing competitive rates. Also, all of the communities provide the security of a gated entrance. Not only that, some are even manned 24/7. Reunion Resort is one of the best examples.
Where to Stay in Orlando – Reunion Resort
Reunion Resort is at the absolute top of the villa rental market. It has over 1000 top end properties to suit every choice. The centrepiece of this amazing community is the impressive, Reunion Grande, an eleven storey hotel. The Grande has everything you’d want from a top hotel. The Grande stands as the epicentre for three signature golf courses. They were designed by legends Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and Tom Watson.
Most of the houses come with beautiful pools. The bigger houses are also free from poolside insect netting, providing a real classy look and feel to the resort.
On site at Reunion you will find a very well equipped water park. Enjoy the waterslide or ride the lazy river!
Encore Resort is one of the more modern communities for Orlando Villas. Whilst not on the same scale as Reunion Resort, Encore does offer a superb selection of vacation rentals. The number of bedrooms being the key feature here. The value for money at Encore is superb as many of the properties are 8, 9 or 10 bedrooms. For example, the more people who stay in the villa, the cheaper it becomes.
Whilst there are no fine dining options at Encore, the resort itself has a superb waterpark facility. In addition, holiday makers can use some of the facilities at nearby Reunion Resort as the resort is a “Sister” resort.
The slightly older Champions Gate Vacation Rentals community is also a superb option. The centrepiece here being the magnificent Omni Hotel. Here you’ll find a wonderful waterpark, fine dining and every facility you would expect to see in a top Orlando hotel. There are hundreds of villa options across Champions Gate. Whilst the villas are not on the same quality scale as Reunion Resort, they do offer very good value for money.
What to expect
Orlando Villa Holidays are all managed by professional local management teams and as such you can expect a consistency in terms of finish and presentation. Many of the villas are available with “Welcome packs” which covers the basics of tea, coffee, bread and milk. Almost all firms offer a “Shopping” concierge service so you can arrive in your villa knowing that you have everything you need for at least the next day or two.
Most villas also come with a pool and Florida law protects children by ensuring there are pool alarms or pool fencing to prevent any younger children falling in.
Many for the communities are within a very short drive to most of the theme parks.
