All about Blue Heron Beach Resort
These one- and two-bedroom condo-style suites are one mile from Walt Disney World® Resort, about 3 miles from SeaWorld Orlando, and near several night clubs and bars. The Blue Heron offers a unique extra: each guest suite features a balcony with views of Orlando and Lake Bryan.
With 900 feet of lakefront footage, the Blue Heron Beach Resort offers myriad water adventures such as jet skiing and water skiing. Families can also stay cool in freeform and kids’ pools.
In every condo-style suite, spacious balconies access the cool breezes that blow off Lake Bryan. Each Blue Heron suite also includes a fully equipped kitchen with service for 8, along with a washer and dryer.
This Orlando resort is less than a mile from Walt Disney World® Resort and the Downtown Disney® area. Universal Studios is a seven-mile drive. A Starbucks drive-thru is on site. The hotel complex also features a mini-golf course, supermarket, souvenir shop, CiCi’s pizza, and Dunkin’ Donuts.
Equipped with its own dock, the lakefront resort does not stint on water sports: water skiing, jet skiing, kayaking, power boating, and a wetlands walkway are all available on site or nearby. A 6,000-square-foot pool with adjacent spa tub, a children’s pool, a miniature golf course next door, and a fitness center provide further recreation options.
A concierge at the Blue Heron Beach Resort assists with activities, while the business center and complimentary wireless Internet access allow guests in town for business (the Orange County Convention Center is just 2.5 miles away) to stay in touch.
The Blue Heron Beach Resort offers one-and two-bedroom condo-style suites, all with balconies overlooking the lake. Suites include full kitchens equipped with ranges, ovens, refrigerator/freezers, microwaves, dishwashers, utensils, and service for up to eight people.
Master bathrooms feature jetted bathtubs. All suites come with washers and dryers. Cable TV, DVD players, and complimentary high-speed Internet access are also included. Decor is contemporary, with a sunny Mediterranean palette.
The hotel occupies 900 feet of lakeshore, with a private dock. Lake activities include motor boating, water skiing, jet skiing, canoeing, and kayaking—either on site or nearby. Water skis, boats, and other rentals are available from an independently operated water-sports center just a short walk from the hotel along the lake. The center can also deliver personal watercraft to the hotel’s own dock.
Numerous public golf courses in the area include Celebration, in the nearby planned community of the same name, and Orlando’s own Crooked Cat. The Hawaiian Rumble Adventure miniature golf course is next door to the hotel.
