When our family is choosing where to stay for vacation we take a lot into consideration. Length of stay, budget and type of accommodation are all things we consider before we book our trip. Though we tend to visit a ton of theme parks, sometimes we are looking for a place that has everything we need without having to leave. Summer Bay Orlando, which is part of the Exploria Resort family turned out to be just that. From the room, to the onsite activities the resort had everything we needed for our last trip. Here are a few reasons why you should consider booking with Summer Bay Orlando for your next vacation.
Accommodations to fit every family style
While we love a good hotel, Summer Bay has even more than that. They have accommodations to fit every family style whether you are looking for a hotel room (which can be booked at Exploria Express) or a home with a private screened in pool. Our two bedroom condo was perfect for our family of 5 and we had space for even more guests. The benefits of having an onsite full kitchen and washer/dryer with small children also cannot be beat.
Close to theme parks
Summer Bay Orlando is conveniently located 10 miles from Walt Disney World resort. Depending on which park you plan to visit for the day, you can get to most of Walt Disney World in less than 20 minutes. The hotel also offers complimentary shuttle service for all hotel guests. You can receive the shuttle schedule on site (we got one when we checked in) and are able to schedule service the same day.
6 Outdoor Pools
While homes at Summer Bay come with private, screened in pools there are multiple on site pools available to guests. 2 of the pools feature a poolside bar (one with grill) and Buccaneer Bay Adventure Park has rock climbing, zip lining, lake activities and an interactive water playground. All of these are available to resort guests and subject to weather.
On-site dining and grocery delivery available
Nothing says vacation resort like on-site dining. Summer Bay Orlando offers a few on-site dining options including the Big Kahuna Bar and Grill, and a yummy italian restaurant. We also took advantage of the coffee shop which serves your Starbucks favorites. Since many of the accommodations are also equipped with a full kitchen, grocery delivery is a good option for those looking to save money on eating out. There is a Walmart and Publix close by. We took advantage of those options for breakfast since our kids are picky with their morning eating habits.
Family Activities on site
Aside from Buccaneer Bay Adventure park, there are countless family activities on site that all ages will enjoy. We were able to check out the Gator Adventure Show as well as Jukebox Bingo during our stay. There is also a recreation pavilion complete with arcade. The recreation pavilion theater shows multiple movies per day. For a separate fee, families can also rent equipment to participate in water activities such as paddleboat, kayaking and fishing. For a complete list of movies and activities during your stay at the resort, check out their calendar here.
If you are looking for a home away from home feel then Summer Bay Orlando is everything you need on your next vacation. You don’t have to be visiting a theme park to stay at this Exploria resort as there is plenty to keep you occupied during your time there.
