We did not golf or go to the spa.
What we did was hang out at the pools. The Winter temperatures in FL vary greatly. We chose Doral because of the heated pools. I don't think the resort staff and marketing department realize how great their pools are for families.
The Blue Lagoon pool with its zero entry was perfect for our 3 year old. It was not heated and had a waterfall. The second pool was heated to a very comfortable bath like temperature and was quieter. The Blue Monster slide and pool was heated to just below hot tub temperatures and was a favorite of our 7 year old. The hot tub also had a waterfall and was almost too hot.
While everyone we met were golfers, very few went to the pool. There were only a few families at the resort. Mostly dudes golfing. The pools were not crowded.
The only negative for families would be the restaurant options for dinner. Though after a long day at the pools, room service did just fine.
The usual: Resort fee, parking fee and no free wifi should be factored in when making your choice.
We will be back.
