’Hood Just off tree-lined Palm Parkway, this newer, 52-acre resort is located close to key Orlando attractions such as Walt Disney World, SeaWorld, Universal Studios, and more than 90 golf courses. The Orange County Convention Center is a 10-minute ride away.
The Vibe Sleek contemporary styling meets lush tropical landscapes. The lobby is characterized by clean lines and neutral walls, with a few bold splashes of color, like ceiling inlays painted in Granny-Smith green. A playground, a pool table and video game areas, plus a no-smoking rule, make the resort particularly appealing for families.
Rooms Buttery walls and wood-laminate floors open up the already generously sized studios and condos. Wood-framed vinyl headboards in nature-inspired hues of tan or green set off white blankets accented with embroidered runners in gold and brown. Fully stocked kitchens have stainless steel appliances and granite countertops. Sitting areas are comfy, with ample seating, sofa beds, and wall-mounted televisions. Oversize bathrooms are bright and modern, accented with blue glass tiles.
Plus Two pools with waiter service glisten amid beautifully manicured landscapes. Walking paths surround the lake, and there’s a jogging track and basketball area for more active guests. A brightly colored, well-equipped children’s play center offers individual and group activities.
Minus Certain rooms look out on areas slated for future construction.
