We love taking weekend getaways when we can. Really, anything longer in this economy has become next to impossible. One of our favs is the Doral Golf & Spa Resort.
We escaped the house renovations this past weekend on a last minute trip that was much needed. The resort is slightly west of Miami near the airport, but just a hop, skip and jump to South Beach. The resort flies the Marriott flag and offers Nickelodeon inspired activities for kids… Sliming and the such. I love this place because it’s not “too much kid” and not “too much adult.” The perfect mix of both worlds, and I can relax.
For the “big kids” there’s the Pritikin Longevity Spa and five different golf course including the well-known Blue Monster. There are several restaurants and of course the staple Starbucks. For the smaller ones in the brood there’s scheduled kids activities throughout the day, a super fun (even for me) water slide, the zero-entry Blue Lagoon pool and Camp Doral for ages 5-12. There are certain weekends that are deemed Nickelodeon getaways so check the website if you want the complete Nick immersion.
The rooms are spacious and comfy. And, I’m a girl who needs her space.
Rates start at $139/night for a family package. If you are looking for a weekend getaway from the Orlando area, this is the place to go!
