  1. My family stayed for a week in September at Lighthouse Key. The kids loved it – they thought the theatre was great! My wife and I really enjoyed our couple’s massage.
    For the price, I never expected something so grand. Highly recommend.

  2. My family and I stayed at this resort for Memorial Weekend, and let me tell you even for the holiday I think we got a steal deal on this property. The rooms were as big as my 3 bedroom 2 bath house, and they are beautifuly kept and decorated. The arcade and movie theatre was a big plus when we got back from the parks, the kids could go on their own and we didnt feel like we had to worry about them. Great place great price dont think we could comment anything negative about it.
