Water Inspired Experiences

The kids will look forward to their water park adventure, where they can zip down the water flume or float the lazy river current at our 91,000 square-foot Fantasy Pool Complex. You will cherish your time-honored romantic dinner at one of our oceanfront resort restaurants where the seafood is always fresh off the boat. And of course, there's always the beach. Not to mention, our resort is near all of the region's famed sights Including historic St. Augustine, Daytona International Speedway, and the Kennedy Space Center. Orlando's dazzling theme parks are just about 90 miles West. Whether your adrenaline boost comes from roller coaster thrills or reeling in the "big catch," there's something for everyone.
