At reunionresort.com, it reads that the resort is a “2,200-acre destination.” Does the typical traveler realize how big that is? It’s approximately three-square miles/five-square kilometers – it’s massive. To fully comprehend Reunion Resort’s heft – ya gotta see it for yourself.
A few features that indicate Reunion’s size are:
• 10 swimming pools, yeah, 10
• 54 holes of golf designed by Nicklaus, Palmer and Watson
• Water park with lazy river
• Six restaurants, both fine and casual
There is a lot to like about this resort – here are five things we loved about Reunion Resort.
5. Ridiculously Comfortable and Spacious Rooms
In tune with the overall theme, i.e. spacious, the 11-story Grande offers one, two and three-bedroom Villas or Vacation Rental Homes. Want to go large? Check out Eagle Bay, a 10-bedroom home with home theater, game room, water park and golf view. Hotel comfort is typically in the details – a gold Reunion Resort sticker goes on the paper towels to keep the loose sheet from waving about. Class.
All rooms feature:
- Master Suite with king size bed and private master bathroom
- Flat-screen TV and DVD/CD in living room and bedrooms
- Spacious dining and living room area, most with queen sleeper sofa
- Spacious private balcony with table and chairs
- Washer/dryer in villa
- Complimentary valet parking
- Complimentary high-speed wireless internet
- Nightly turn-down service
4. Phenomenal Dining
Eleven, the 11th floor steakhouse is in good hands with Chef Jake Brenchle. We recommend the steak carpaccio, filet spring rolls, ribeye and peanut butter cake (and bread pudding too). And the Grande Lobby Sushi Bar – try the Grande Reunion Roll.
3. One of the Best Family Resorts in the World
Aside from its proximity to the greatest theme park in the history of theme parks, (just six miles from Disney World), there is a lot of onsite activity. The resort has a five-acre water park with lazy river and their kids program is incredible. We were there at Halloween, the water park was converted to a haunted park with kid’s carnival games, paint a pumpkin, visit our trick-or- treat stations, costume contest and more. And if mom and dad want to hit the town, the resort offers the “Parents Night Out.” Mom and dad go out and while the kids enjoy crafts, games and activities.
And if dad likes to play golf – three of the best golf courses in the state.
2. 54 Holes of Golf from Palmer, Nicklaus and Watson
Some of the best Bermuda greens we’ve ever seen at a resort – they were firm and true. Really enjoyed the challenge of the Nicklaus Course – the others are a bit easier, but all are in fine condition. And check for deals – right now the resort is offering an unlimited golf package starting at $144 per player per night, worth every penny.
1. Total Package
This resort impresses from check-in to checkout – without a doubt one of the best golf resorts we visited in 2017. It’s a resort that works for buddy golf trips, families, couples and large groups – very few resorts can pull this off, but Reunion does.
