WHY IT RATES: Travel agents and advisors should be selling clients on the fun and relaxation of Margaritaville Resort Orlando.—Donald Wood, Breaking News Senior Writer.
Margaritaville Resort Orlando, the highly anticipated vacation and residential destination in the heart of Central Florida, today announced that hotel reservations are open for stays beginning January 2019, with rates starting at $199.
The mega resort destination, being developed by Encore Capital Management, spans over 300-acres and includes four main components: Margaritaville Hotel, Margaritaville Cottages, Sunset Walk shopping, dining and entertainment district and Island H2O Live! Waterpark.
“Margaritaville Resort Orlando will be the first resort destination in this area where guests and owners can equally enjoy a personalized, premium experience and a robust offering of amenities, all within easy walking distance from their guest room or cottage home,” said Alyssa Bushey, head of marketing for the resort. “More than 35 dining, recreation and relaxation options, shopping, spas, entertainment, a dine-in movie theatre and an exhilarating water park are all just a short stroll or trolley ride away.”
