Staying so close to some of the major theme parks certainly has its benefits, especially in summer when one of our tips is to take a break and head back to your hotel or villa in the afternoon. Coco Key Hotel and Water Resort is found right on International Drive itself and offers a free shuttle service to the nearby parks. There are an amazing 14 water slides and 4 swimming pools to enjoy when you’re not enjoying the roller coasters.
If you prefer self-catering accommodation, Sheraton Vistana Resort Villas is within walking distance of International Drive and just a 15 minute drive to Universal Studios. The resort has its own bars and restaurants as well as multiple pools and tennis courts.
