The hotel

This isn’t just a holiday resort, it’s a world in itself. For starters, there’s the 18-hole golf course and 4 heated outdoor pools. The Spa at Shingle Creek is perfect for a pamper, and there's fun for all the family with tennis, basketball and sand volleyball games galore. When hunger calls, head to one of the many restaurants and choose from a range of cuisines, or head out onto I-Drive for some classic American diners. Just a short drive from Orlando's best theme parks, you're never far from the fun. And once the day is done, head to your relaxing room for some down time before another day of adventure ahead.

Husband and I were in town for a convention. When we checked in, the hotel was out of regular King rooms so they upgraded us to an Executive Suite. HUGE room, but the bed was a Queen Murphy bed that was soooo uncomfortable. Everything else about the hotel was excellent.

Lovely hotel and very pleasant stay. Polite and friendly staff. Loved the pools at the hotel and no being ripped off with parking charges like so many hotels in Orlando. Great food options and very comfortable rooms. Would stay here again in a heart beat

We had a very enjoyable stay in this huge hotel - you certainly do plenty of exercise getting around it! It is a very well organsied hotel with helpful staff able to answer any query. the bedroom was clean and very comfortable with all you need for a stay of a few nights. The hotel has numerous restaurants and a mini-market that sells basic essentals, coffee and has a deli within it. Swimming pools are superb though they were closed whilct we were there because of bad weather. The fitness room is excellent. We would certainly stay here in the future. Read less

Excellent food and service. Our server maintained professionalism and detail to the experience. Beautiful atmosphere, and the prices are very recently for the kind of service and food your going to be receiving. Highly recommended if you’re having a special occasion.

Amazing place to take the family and enjoy a good time. No need to leave the hotel as it has everything except Mickey and Minnie. I had a really nice time at the spa getting massages and eating in all of the restaurants. I’m not a swimmer but I appreciate all the pools
