Our family of 5 in the Antigua Suite, a two bedroom, two bath suite. The Antigua is 1,080 square feet of family space and sleeps 6 easily. The living room has a sleeper sofa, large screen TV, dining area with seating for 6 and a updated kitchen with granite counter tops, cherry wood cabinets, and full size appliances. We were happy to find a kitchen fully equiped with dishes, glassware and flatware.

Another great feature at at the pool was their poolside tiki bar, Lani’s Luau. Lani’s Luau served food and made some great adult beverages. Kristi and I enjoyed our Banana Fusion poolside.

Lake Buena Vista Resort Village Resort & Spa also offers staySky Kids Club. During our visit there were quite a few scheduled activities poolside including arts & crafts and face painting. Activities for staySky Kids Club vary, so be sure to check with the concierge or front desk for activities during your stay.
Another great amenity that you will want to take advantage of during your stay is a visit to Reflections Spa & Salon. I think Kristi coined it best when she said this was “Heaven in a high rise”. Reflections Spa & Salon offer a wide variety of spa services. With 10 treatment rooms, one hydrotherapy tub room, sauna room, private relaxation rooms, two deluxe couples treatment rooms, as well as salon services, there isn’t much that Reflections Spa & Salon can’t do for the mind and body. Kristi and I first enjoyed a Hydrating Island Bath, which was a warm bath in their hydrotherapy tub with pure coconut milk from Fiji that hydrated and smoothed our skin. We ended our time at at Reflections Spa with a Couples Fijian Hot Oil Scalp Massage. During this 25 minutes, warm exotic oils were massaged into our scalp and neck. It was honestly, one of the most relaxing experiences I’ve ever had.

At the end of our day, we grabbed a bite to onsite at Frankie Farrell’s Irish Pub & Grille. Frankie’s had a great atmosphere and really good food, offering classic Irish dishes like Bangers and Mash or Fish & Chips. For the beer lovers, you’ll be happy to know that the pub offers 32 taps, dispensing several European and Domestic brands.

After a great nights sleep in our Antigua Suite, we woke up early and hit the pool one last time before checking out. The kids, one again, could not get enough of the pirate themed pool and well, Kristi and I may or may not have had another Banana Fusion.

While I was not compensated for my thoughts or this post, I was given a complimentary one night stay at Lake Buena Vista Resort Village & Spa and a credit to use at the Reflections Spa & Salon. My thoughts are my own.
