The Villas of Grand Cypress give guests the feeling of being miles away from the crowds but the convenience of being right next to Disney World. Featuring 146 grand villas on 1,500 acres, the resort is famed for its 45 golf holes designed by Jack Nicklaus and its renowned golf academy. Families will love "dive-in movies" by the pool, while couples can indulge in spa treatments such as the aromatherapy cellulite body wrap or in-room deep-tissue massage.
Less than 2 miles from Disney World, this all-encompassing resort unfolds across 200 well-manicured acres of lush, hibiscus-covered land. The hotel caters to both vacationing families and business folk, offering a virtual smorgasbord of casual, yet upscale restaurants, a lagoon with a 106-foot water slide among the 6 available pools, and a 24-hour fitness center. Treat yourself to a eucalyptus steam at the full-service spa, while the kids enjoy the arcade. Make your stay perfect by asking for a room with views of the Magic Kingdom, and enjoy the nightly fireworks from your private balcony.
It's a bit of la dolce vita, Orlando style. The Loews Portofino Bay Hotel, built to evoke the festive mood of the Italian Riviera, offers resort lodging just minutes from Universal Studios. Architecturally, the sprawling 795-room resort mirrors the colorful, vertical houses that top the cliffs of northwestern Italy’s coastal region of Liguria. This Mediterranean mood continues with the guestrooms decor, in the 3 themed pools (one has a kid-friendly waterpark with a Roman aqueduct motif), as well as with live Italian music nightly and Italian cuisine in 2 of the 8 restaurants.
