We stayed here after a fun-filled 12 night stay in Orland do everything Disney and beyond. We had a fabulous time here. We stayed in a marina villa (we upgraded) which was like a pretty wood clad New England style home. Very nicely done inside. The bedrooms upstairs were both en-suite and very nice. They washer dryer was great as we returned home with clean clothes! We ended up doing the dolphin swim here and at the Dolphin Connection program down the road. The other one was slightly better as the whole family can participate (from age 4-adult). They also do the dorsal fin swim which they don't do at HC. My son was told he was too short to be in the water with the dolphins at HC so very glad we went down the road and he had a chance to participate in this very special of treats.
The pools are fabulous there is a main one by the restaurants and lagoon and an adult only one further round the corner hidden from the main area and noise. There is also a fab kids pool with pirate ship behind the kids club and another deeper pool here also. The hot tubs are scorching and fab and we all loved the lagoon.
We had a lovely big lawn outside our villa for family games and the marina where the kids fished off the dock (not supposed to but no one cared and the boat owners lent us extra nods and tips!). We had a manatee swim up during fishing trip which was really special.
Ocean restaurant was brilliant. The mexican restaurant burned down the day we arrived and they do need another one. Think they need a japanese / sushi / fusion restaurant.
The Keys are very laid back. Get all your shopping done in Orlando.
