Not all Orlando resorts are created equally. Some have kiddie pools, others have a playground and every now & then you’ll find games. We’ve found a resort with everything- the kids didn’t want to leave, even for theme parks! They have a playground, basketball courts, tennis courts, fishing pier, indoor & outdoor pools, splash park, poolside games (jenga, giant connect 4, etc), board games, breakfast fun station… and… and… and… the list goes on.
The Embassy Resort was exactly what I look for when we #RoadTripSimply… lots of opportunities for memories without the stress of too many decisions, too much driving and too much money.
Here are a few reasons we love Embassy Suites Resort Lake Buena Vista. We’ll start in the glam lobby:
Grand Spaces for Gathering Embassy Suites is very accommodating for families and is our favorite chain. We love the 2 room suites and the cook-to-order breakfast each morning is hard to beat. Embassy Lake Buena Vista is a resort property and wowed me from check-in to complimentary evening cocktails & snacks. They offer extras like shuttle services, valet parking and a weekend’s worth of activities. You can also get free internet access and late checkout when you book your next stay at Embassy Suites Hotels. <-That’s an affiliate link- click for special offers.
Venus Le Spa = Easy Relaxation No one wants to admit it, but vacations can be stressful and can leave you more tired than a week at work. That’s not the #RoadTripSimply way! Instead of overplanning, leave time for relaxation and for last minute discoveries.
Venus Le Spa was a last minute discovery for us. This display in Embassy’s lobby tempts guests to carve out some “me time” while visiting. My hubby freed me up and Venus Le Spa made room for an appointment on a busy Saturday. 90 minutes in the spa is 90 minutes of guaranteed relaxation no matter how busy the rest of vacation is!
Fun Kids Activities On our way to the bank of elevators, the kids spotted this sign across the room:
It led to an impromptu Mariokart tournament…
…and marked the gathering place for fun, games and crafts every morning during breakfast.
Family fun just starts there… elsewhere on site there are boxes of board games for family game time and they also host “dive in movies” at the pool regularly!
Spacious Rooms Upstairs, the 2 room suites perfectly accommodate families big and small with a pull out couch in the living room and either 2 queens or 1 king in the bedroom.
Thoughtful Touches for Kids and Grown Ups! We went outside after unpacking to explore the grounds. It was evident that the resort welcomes families at every turn. For example, the fishing dock has rocking chairs for relaxation and they have a couple of small ones for littles!
Little ones aren’t the only ones pampered at Embassy Suites Resort. They sell s’mores kits for kids… and cigars for grown-ups. Hubby and I slipped down to the cigar lounge one evening to relax by the firepit.
You could spend a weekend at the resort and not leave. Cornhole, jenga, a pool table, a giant connect 4, and board games in the atrium… everywhere we turned we found a new way to make memories. They offer complimentary shuttles to theme parks, I Drive and shopping if you do decide to leave. This is one vacation decision that’s easy! Stay at Embassy Suites Lake Buena Vista!
