Do you ever wish you could find a resort that is the perfect combination of adult retreat and child’s playground?
Rest easy. You’ve found it!
For those of you that want to squeeze one last hurrah into your summer travel plans, consider booking a #SummerFest vacation at the Gaylord Palms Resort in sunny ☀️ Orlando, Florida.
I live in Central Florida and Gaylord Palms is in my “top five” list of resorts to staycation at.
Not only is it beautifully manicured, it also has a living air-conditioned atrium in which to play.
On a recent visit, my girlfriend and I enjoyed the adults only activities during the hotel’s summer promotional period which runs through August 21st.
After checking in, we immediately donned our swimwear and headed down to the adults only pool. Don’t worry, there is also a family waterpark with a zero depth entry pool for the kiddos, complete with activities and slides.
We selected two lounge chairs under an umbrella and soaked in the sun while chatting away. When we would get warm enough we would take a dip in the pool.
Our fabulous Florida weather held out until around 3 PM where in normal Central Florida fashion the storm clouds started rolling in. We took this opportunity to check out the Relache Spa for the very first time.
I have stayed at the Gaylord palms resort more times than I can count and had never experienced their spa. I had no idea what I was missing out on! We had the best afternoon taking advantage of the rain showers and each indulging in massages. My favorite part was hopping back and fourth between the wet and dry saunas.
When we were completely relaxed we decided to head back up to our room in the Key West atrium section of the resort.
When you book your stay at Gaylord Palms be sure to book an atrium view room. Sitting out on the balcony and taking in the views here is nothing short of amazing!
After dinner we headed over to the Old Hickory Steakhouse lounge in the Everglades section of the resort for a nightcap.
Be sure to ask for Tianna, she is the BEST bartender there, and tell her Amanda Tinney sent ya!
The Gaylord Palms “Surf In & Rock Out Package” starts at $179 per night. To learn more about the Summerfest offerings featuring Princess Blackheart and the Buccaneer Bash visit Marriott.com or call 1-407-586-0000.
Special thanks goes out to the Gaylord Palms Resort for hosting me. All opinions are of course my own.
