Sitting on more than 1,400 acres, the Holiday Inn Club Vacations at Orange Lake Resort is massive and packed with so many activities that a week’s stay may not be enough time to experience it all -- not to mention the Orlando area surrounding it. The resort encompasses four villages, each with its own theme and vibe.
The West Village is the center of it all and boasts rock climbing, tennis courts, basketball, an arcade and water sports on the lake.
The North Village is more of a relaxing retreat with calm waterfalls and multi-level pool decks. The pools are more kid friendly here, with a Splash Lagoon Pool that’s perfect for the little ones. The villas are slightly older but much more spacious in this area.
The quieter East Village is more spread out and surrounded by beautiful lakes, lush vegetation and palm trees. It’s a golfer’s paradise with a championship golf course, the Legacy Sports Bar & Grill and miniature golf.
The newest and most popular of the four villages is River Island. The lazy river is the star of the show -- at 1,200 feet, it winds and turns through lush landscaping, colorful foliage and waterfalls.
All four villages have restaurants, pools and activities to cater to every member of the family. While the restaurants tend to be a little pricey, there are several dining options just outside the resort, along with a grocery store, a Target and a Walgreens.
Guests may be asked to attend a timeshare presentation but are not obligated to attend. And make sure to ask about additional charges, as some excursions and amenities are extra.
