The rooms at Reunion Resort are absolutely stunning. My husband and I were in awe how beautiful our one bedroom villa suite was. The resort’s accommodations include luxury one, two and three bedroom Villas plus multi-bedroom Vacation Rental Homes. The accommodations include spacious living and dining areas, full kitchens, patios and balconies.
You can enjoy upscale resort living, each villa is open and inviting for families and couples alike. Each providing a large dining area and spacious living room for everyone to gather. This way if you want to stay in for breakfast or for dinner you can cook right in your very own kitchen or even have a glass of wine on your balcony/patio for happy hour!
The Vacation Rental Homes also have features like private swimming pools, game rooms and even their own putting greens.
If you love to golf Reunion Resort is the place to be. One of only six resorts to receive Golf Digest's "2018 BEST GOLF RESORTS IN FLORIDA", playing at Reunion Resort is definitely something to add to your bucket list. They have Three Signature Golf Courses designed by golf legends: Jack Nicklaus, Tom Watson and Arnold Palmer.
Also with 10 Community Pools and a Water Park why would you need to leave the resort? The waterpark is amazing! You can float down the lazy river, ride the twisting water slides, and play lawn games like life size chess! Pair that with poolside food and beverage service, colorful tropical landscaping, sunny or shaded lounge areas, and you have a island oasis for the adults and children!
I loved the swing bar and the bartender Chris was very nice! He made me a classic Moscow Mule while I watched everyone play in the lazy river! Definitely a spot you could make a day out of!
After a full day of playing golf, splashing in the water park or swimming in one of Reunion's pools you are bound to be hungry!
Reunion Resort offers seven different restaurants with all different types of cuisines to satisfy your palate.
The first restaurant my husband and I had dinner at was the Eleven Roof Top Restaurant. The restaurant is sitting atop the Reunion Resort on the 11th floor, Eleven is the perfect place for an amazing meal and spectacular view. A modern steak house with farm to table elements showcase Eleven's creative menu offerings coupled with premium steak cuts and signature entrees.
We went out to the pool terrace to take some pics and enjoy happy hour before we began dinner.
The two drinks I decided on were the Floradora (Hendrick’s, Lime Juice, Fresh
Raspberries, Ginger Beer) and the Blueberry Gin Fizz (Hendrick’s, Fresh Blueberries,
Lemon Juice, Simple Syrup, Soda Water). Both were mixed perfectly and brought a ton of flavor.
There were so many amazing items on the menu. We decided to go with the Sizzling Roasted Garlic appetizer (Tomato Chutney/Cambozola Cheese/Grilled French Baguette), Heirloom Caprese Salad (Florida Toy Box Tomatoes/Baby Mozzarella /Truffle Balsamic Glaze/Lemon Basil / Olive Oil) and the Lobster Bisque (Butter Poached Lobster/Green Onion Crème Fraîche) to start! Everything was made to perfection and the truffle balsamic glaze was something I would buy in quarts!
For our entrees we had the Crab Crusted Florida Grouper (Roasted Tomato Grits / Local Market Vegetables/Thyme /Citrus Butter) and the Jumbo Scallops (Pan Roasted/Warm Potato and Watercress Salad/Lobster Butter Sauce). The scallops melted in your mouth and the roasted tomato grits were delectable.
We finished the night with the Brown Butter Bread Pudding (Whiskey Glaze, Spicy Pecans). I posted this dessert on my instagram a few days back and everyone was obsessed with the presentation but it tasted even better!
At the end of the night you can stand out on the pool deck enjoy in some cocktails and watch the Disney fireworks! Yup! Fireworks are included.
The next day we ate at the ClubHouse for lunch. The Reunion Clubhouse features American regional cuisine served in a casual and comfortable setting where you can eat indoors or out. We choose to eat outside since it was a beautiful day.
My husband and I had the Tuna Melt (Homemade Tuna Salad, Provolone, On a Brioche Bun) and The TAB Club (Turkey, Avocado, Bacon, Lettuce, Tomato, Mayo, Swiss Cheese, On Honey Wheat Bread). Both were delicious and we had a great time relaxing while watching everyone get ready to go out and golf for the day.
For Dinner we decided to indulge in some Sushi at the Grande Lobby Sushi Bar. We were able to meet Chef Ha and he was such a charmer!
My drink of choice for the night was Cucumber Gimlet (Hendrick’s Gin, lime juice, simple syrup, muddled with a cucumber). It was pretty and tasted fresh and crisp.
For appetizers we had the Crab & Artichoke Dip with Parmesan flat bread and Edamame. Both were delicious.
Chef Ha then surprised us with a new appetizer presentation that will be released in a few months after some restaurant renovations. The Sunomona (Where you can choose: Conch, octopus, tuna, escolar, salmon, real lump crab, or shrimp w/toasted sesame seeds. This appetizer is offered now but not in this large presentation. It was so eye catching when it came over to the table and it tasted even better.
We finished off the night with a few sushi rolls that were brought out in a beautiful wooden boat. We were stuffed! Everything was exceptional and the service was impeccable.
Reunion Resort also has the Forte Restaurant (Italian Cuisine), Traditions Restaurant (features American regional cuisine served in an upscale sports bar setting), The Cove at Seven Eagles (Sandwiches, Salads, Smoothies) and The Grill at the Water Park (Meals, Snacks, Beverages).
One last time we had to finish the night at the Eleven Roof Top Bar for cocktails and sunset. How can you not?
Overall our stay at Reunion Resort was one to remember. I am not sure how I did not know about this stunning Resort since I travel to Kissimmee and Orlando all the time. Now that I do I will be using this hotel as my staycation of choice! I highly recommend you booking your next Spring/Summer trip here. Whether it is a romantic getaway or a family staycation Reunion Resort has you covered. With so much to do you never have to leave the resort but if you do you are only a hop and a skip from Disney and many other theme parks!
Everything was so amazing that The Reunion Resort and I have decided to team up and offer an amazing resort giveaway next week. Stay tuned for details on how to enter. You do not want to miss out!
