Resort Guide: Emerald Island
The best part about Emerald Island is undoubtedly its location – just 4 miles from Disney. The gated and guarded resort has beautiful woodland at its heart plus many amenities at the resort’s amazing clubhouse. The wonderful amenities are matched only by Emerald Island’s friendly, laid-back resort atmosphere.
Emerald Island is a beautiful gated resort set in a fantastic Orlando location. The stunning palm-lined approach to the 24-hour guarded gatehouse reveals the lakes which border the development on each side. Drive further into the resort and you will encounter the 11 acres of woodland which form the heart of this resort.
The resort’s woodland plays host to abundance of wildlife and guests can explore it along the attractive, signposted nature walk. The ‘close to nature’ feel is a real bonus, given the short distance the resort is to Disney.
The Emerald Island resort clubhouse offers guests a wide selection of onsite amenities. Outside, there’s the pool and spa, while inside there are plenty of places to sit and socialize while the kids enjoy the arcade games.
For the more active, the clubhouse also has a spacious and modern gym and outside you will find tennis courts and a children’s playground.
A really lovely resort with a nice family-friendly ambience.
