Horse lovers dream. Stunning hotel. Miss 2 amenity
The equestrian, as the name suggests is based on the theme of horses. If you are a horselover, this is the place for you. The hotel is built in the middle of the WEC and has some high end shops and several eateries. Stirrups for breakfast is a must. If you are very hungry go for the croissant sandwich. It is huge ! The hotel also has a very nice pool. We stayed when no events were on so was very quiet and therefore can't give an opinion on when it is busy. I cannot praise the staff enough though. It was our 30th wedding anniversary that night and we were well looked after. Special mention to Dasia on reception. She really made our visit very special. All the staff were very friendly and very professional. Do we want to go again ? Absolutely yes. If we had a couple of asks, please get the rooms coffee machines. This I've noticed many people have asked for. A bigger request, please have a hot tub put in near the pool. This is a must for a hotel of this calibre and a must for tired riders!

The Equestrian hotel was absolutely gorgeous! The decor was exquisite and luxurious! The service was 5 star and 5 diamond. Every inch of the location was very clean, very well maintained. On site restaurants and shops were amazing as well.

Disney World for horses and horse lovers!!!!!!!!!!
The Equestrian gives Ocala, Florida the class and the respect they deserve. It is so amazing and unbelievable to have this facility available for equine lovers and owners!!! You will breathe different air when you step foot on this property. If there was a 10 star rating The Equestrian would receive 15 stars.....
