It takes a lot to wow me but this resort did it in spades! In this entry, I will touch on some of the amenities we experienced in our weekend stay.
As self-proclaimed fitness studio junkies, we were very excited to see the gym here. The first thing that set it apart was its size. It had three sections all in a spa-like atmosphere. They had cardio machines that included elliptical, treadmills, indoor cycle bikes, and gauntlets. For weight training and functional exercise, they have everything from machines to dumbbells, kettlebells, bosu balls, they even have boxes if you wanted to get some box jumps in. The windows looked out over the beautiful grounds. You could do days of workouts with plenty of room and variety.
If group fitness is your thing, they have a great outdoor area called the “movement lawn”. This is where they have; Pilates, ab attack classes, meditation, body sculpt, yoga, cardio rowing classes. Additional classes offered in the studio are cycling and Barre. If tennis is your thing, they also have tennis drill classes for an additional cost.
This spa was one of the best I have seen on land or by sea. We did a couple’s massage and it was wonderful! The spa staff is very detailed and client focused. The spa itself has plenty of relaxation areas that include; tranquility lounges, indoor and outdoor spaces, experience showers, outdoor whirlpools, and steam rooms. The treatment room were in was beautiful and overlooked the water.
For the kids, they have different make up like a Princess options.

FOR CHILD, a Princess dress of choice, Princess hair style of choice, designer crystal tiara, designer crystal wand, Princess makeup artistry, Princess express manicure, Fairy dust, exclusive princess bracelet of choice, and commemorative princess certificate/
The variety of pools are some of the best I have ever seen. There is the Oasis which is adult only. If you are on your own or the kids are in one of the kid’s activities, head over here to get a little quiet time and be catered to by the wonderful pool staff.
The Explorer pool is family friendly. It is zero entry for the little kids. This is also where on select nights they do movies under the stars where you can even float in your pool chair while watching a family friendly movie.
A popular hangout was the Splash Zone which was rather large. Kids were running around with plenty of space to enjoy the area. This is also where the rock climbing wall is. The rock climbing wall is only open select hours during the day.
One of my favorites was the lazy river. It was a good size for a resort and had beautiful of landscaping as you floated. There were some lounge chairs along the river which would be a nice tucked away spot to read a book.
Regardless of your choice of pools, you don’t need sunscreen. They have stations all over the grounds with Sun Bum sunscreen.
Four Seasons has a camp from 10AM to 6PM daily for ages 4 to 12. Most days have a theme and the activities revolve around that theme.
There are two shops in the resort. One is for jewelry, clothes, handbags. It is filled with collections of curated clothing and accessories for men and women. They do have a fun feature called Designer In-Room Shopping. They will ask you a few questions about your style and then deliver a coordinated outfit to your room. Each look will include 5 pieces. All items will be added to your room folio. You can then text or call for items to be returned and your folio will be adjusted.
The other store is more kid friendly with costumes, toys, and sundries as well. The highlight of this particular store is the hand stitched Princess dresses, each with the Princess signature stitched into the underside of the dress. This would be a very special gift for a little girl.
There are other amenities but this gives you a taste of all Four Seasons has to offer its guests. Between the amenities, the staff, the food and beverage options, it is very difficult to leave the resort to enjoy Disney and Universal. I know, these are problems we all wish we had on vacation.
