Reflections Full Service Salon & Spa

If you really want to do it big on your Disney vacation, then you MUST VISIT the Reflections Spa & Salon. It was my favorite feature of the Orlando all-suite hotel that is one of my favorite spas in the city of Orlando, Florida.

It was my “mommy time” away from the little one and a perfect way for me to enjoy Mother’s Day. Out of all the services and amenities offered at the resort, I truly feel that the spa experience made the visit one to remember.

It was quiet and quaint with a great locker area that was spacious enough that I didn’t feel so close to the other patrons. The community lounge was also charming and relaxing with lots of treats to enjoy before I went into my massage.

The overall massage was done with opulent care. My therapist listened to my request and delivered a remarkable full body massage that makes me excited to go back again for another treatment.

Shuttles are offered to Walt Disney World, but you can take a quick 10-minute driven and be on Disney property.

2-Bedroom Review

Many of the master bedrooms include a deep 2 person hot tub, but I didn’t use it during my stay. The rooms inside the Orlando villas are spacious so you will not have to worry about that.

Do keep in mind that you may notice little things like dust on the furniture or stains in the shower that may have been hard to off with the cleaning staff.

Other than that, the room was to the point and I didn’t have any issues with the accommodations that were offered on my visit.

This resort is also good for solo travelers, but if it’s your first time going to Disney alone, then I recommend that you stay on site at Walt Disney World.
