Indoor Pool off site?

Hi all,

We're heading down in February. We stay offsite for all the obvious reasons. We need a 2BR Condo for our family.

We have stayed at Gaylord and Floridays. We liked them both. Floridays was great because of the the 2BR Condo. Gaylord was good, but it's a hotel which we can't do anymore with DD.

We normally go down when it's warmer, but February is the only time we can do it this time. My DD (2) loves swimming, so I'd like to stay somewhere that is like a Floridays (condo style) but also can get access to an indoor pool.

Any thoughts?

Greatly appreciate it!

The Marriott World Center hotel complex has an indoor pool. Guests who stay at one of the three adjacent Marriott-branded timeshare resorts - Sabal Palms, Imperial Palm Villas, Royal Palms - have access to the hotel's facilities and can use the pools. Sabal Palms is the closest to the hotel facilities of the three resorts.

Legacy Vacation Club Orlando (I think the resort is known as Spas) in Kissimmee has an indoor/outdoor pool.

Embassy Suites/Lake Buena Vista (off Palm Parkway and visible from I-4) also has an indoor/outdoor pool. Though the two-room suites don't have separate bedrooms, there is a sofabed in the living room space.

No, we haven't.

That's the Bluegreen resort that's across the road from Vistana Villages (where we have stayed) and next to Floridays. It's a relatively new timeshare resort and looks nice (from afar). If you haven't already, you should look at the photos at the Bluegreen website, http://www.bluegreenonline.com/explo...px?ResortID=14.

We stayed at the Fountains last February, and one of the main reasons why we chose the Fountains was because of the indoor pool. My kids love to swim and I wanted to make sure that they could swim if the weather was too cold to swim outdoors. They used the indoor pool every evening. It was great!
