On the second floor there will be a restaurant. The Spa Building will include 18 premier, two bedroom, two bath condominiums that will have fully appointed upgrades throughout, including stainless steel appliances in the full kitchen and designed for in-room spa services.

Another wonderful addition to our Resort Village has just opened, Frankie Farrell’s Irish Pub & Grille. The Pub is owned and operated by a former Dublin pub owner, who has re-created some of the elements that make the great pubs of Ireland truly unique.  Sporting real Irish pub spirit and décor, Frankie Farrell’s is a gathering place where friendly bartenders and servers will make you feel at home. Come enjoy the art of conversation or sit back, relax, and listen to live music nightly.  With 32 taps dispensing such great beers as Guinness, Mangers, Boddingtons, Bass and more, coupled with great traditional Irish and American fare, enjoy the best of Ireland while in Orlando.
