The rooms were well-appointed and seemed to have undergone a recent renovation. The two bedroom villa sleeps eight with a Master Bedroom, Guest Suite and two sofa beds. The kitchen is equipped with all the items one would need to prepare a meal in with the family. Being Orlando, this resort is also set alongside a beautiful lake, which makes for a nice backdrop for a family photo.
The resort is located just off International Drive making it very close to Sea World and just a short drive to Disney’s theme parks, Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure. Dining options abound and you’re sure to find your favorite chain in this franchise haven.
The best thing about Marriott’s Harbor Lake in Orlando, Florida, is certainly the pools. On one side of the resort, there is giant pirate ship with planks to walk, slides to splash into the pool and of course water guns. Activities staff keep the children busy with all kinds of games and contests. We had the pleasure of watching the children go on a treasure hunt while we caught some rays poolside. The smiles on their faces and excitement in their eyes told me these were memories they won’t be forgetting.
As if the pirate ship isn’t enough, a second pool on property is surrounded by a giant water activities area, a waterslide into the pool and a miniature golf course. We saw kids and adults alike enjoying the water features. You can run under sprinklers or shoot giant water guns at one another from opposing towers. Don’t get caught not paying attention in the towers! Both are topped with a giant bucket and when it’s full it dumps a tidal wave of water over those lurking beneath.
This resort definitely caters to the wee ones with a poolside snack shack that has all their favorite popsicles, smoothies and ice cream treats. If you’re coming to Orlando with children I highly recommend this resort. At Marriott’s Harbour Lake Resort, Mom and Dad can relax poolside and let the many activities wear the kids out. A day off from touring the nearby theme parks can be fun and relaxing for everyone.
Of the multiple Marriott Vacation Clubs in Orlando, this resort is one of the smallest but as they say, “Good things come in small packages.” When it comes to Marriott’s Harbour Lake Resort I’d have to agree.
If an annual trip to Orlando is something you’d like to cherish with your kids or grandkids then buying a Harbour Lake timeshare will ensure those memories are made year after year.
