Orlando fact file


Kevin stayed in the spectacular Grande Lakes Orlando, set in 500 acres of landscaped grounds. With a luxury 584-room Ritz-Carlton and a deluxe 1,000-room JW Marriott side by side, you might assume that the hotels are the focus, but guests can take an exclusive eco-tour where a lucky few might spot an alligator just a short walk from their bedroom.

The JW Marriott has a Greg Norman-designed golf course to wind up and a top-class spa to wind down.

For the kids, there is a lazy river and daily activities with some fun staff, alongside a selection of restaurants, including one run by celebrity chef Norman Van Aken.
