Update on the Orange Tree Resort Pool (updated 5/8/19) - Earlier, the resort reported that their pool will be unexpectedly closed for renovations from April 29th through June 6, 2019. More recently as of this date the pool company states that it will most likely be completed by May 27th (which is prior to our event May 31 and June 1); the resort placed an alert on its website that it will be closed possibly until June 2nd (just giving them a “cushion” in case they are delayed somehow in repairing what was needed for safety). So it is possible, if repairs are completed quickly, the pool will be open. In the event it is not open, the resort has partnered with Embassy Suites , approximately 2 miles away in which Orange tree resort customers have been invited to use the Embassy Suites pool. Their pool is outdoors, overlooking the golf course, heated to 85 degrees and the have a pool bar.
