It's do close to everything. So much to do on site. They share all facilities with the hotel across the street which is great. I stay here anytime I come to Orlando. The bar is awesome. And love the convince of the store/restaurant in site.
I never like the timeshare sales pitch. I unplug my phone as soon as I get into the room so they can't bother me.
Great price, room is perfect equipped with kitchen,huge bathroom and more.
The gym is small but not terrible.Hidden fees at check in we weren't told about through kayak.
This hotel was great! We arrived a bit earlier than the 4pm check in but had no issues getting a key and the room was ready. I was expecting one standard room but it was actually a suite with a full kitchen, living room, bed room, and huge bathroom with a big bathtub. The room was clean, modern and comfortable. Only noise I heard was some loud people walking through the hallway briefly in the morning. We didn't have a chance to check out any of the property amenities (one night stay) but I would like to stay here again in the future and see everything. My only issue was the kayak price was $71 but after all the taxes and fees it was $88. Upon arrival the hotel put a $100 hold on my card and charged an additional $11.25 as the resort fee. The hold was returned immediately to my card after checkout. I guess this probably happens at most hotels, I just wasn't expecting it but I would definitely stay here again! Btw we were not hassled to buy a time share (it was never even mentioned although I suspect that's what the blinking message on the room phone was about) and they gave us a coupon for a free photo book to create.
Excellent stay at a great price too!!
I loved the 2 bedroom suite. My 17 yr old daughter loved her privacy as well as her own bathroom. It was like being at home. Extremely comfortable, clean and very relaxing.
Great location and fun for families. Great resort activities for kids. Pools were just right.
Parking was hard to find after dinner time
Would definately come back for a stay-cation. Kitchen very accommodating for preparing meals. Pools very welcoming to relax by. Loved the hour after hour of outdoor activities offered to kids/teens.
I had the best time with my boyfriend. We went to all the pools and loved our villa!!!
It was a time share or something. Kept trying to get me to come to a presentation for membership. Wasn't aware of this before booking.
A lot of space
We had plenty of room with a 2 bedroom. It offered a great kitchen, large living room, and 2 great bedrooms and bathrooms.
We were not aware when booking this hotel that it
The deception by the staff.
very clean and accommodating. There was nothing lacking.
I went to pay for the special 12 mouth deal 5 nights at any participating resort, but it could not be done. I was promised a call back after a couple of hours, but that never happened. At check out I advised of the issue and was assured that I would get a call back but have not at this time.
Very nice except for one issue
Very good resort. Friendly and engaging staff.
What we didn't like was the Internet access. Paying $5/day for a very weak connection was a bit aggravating.
excellent location and your friendly staff.
Unfortunately we found the A/C unit very noisy ,however i sure are looking after this problem.
The privacy. Amount of space to be comfortable. Kitchen facilities were adequate and furnishings were a bit worn but were clean. Washer and dryer were also good to have
All 5 of us could fit and have a washing machine and room to sit it was great
The room was beautiful and clean. Very nice pool area. Close to everything you would need in Orlando.
The welcome package talk they give you as soon as you check in. Late check out will cost you over $200.
The staff is great. Rooms are nice and pool and hottub are great. Food insure is good too
I liked that they offered a selection of pools and activities at the resort. All the pools had a kiddie pool around them and also a hot tub. Our suite was over the top big!!
The rooms need to be remodeled...the furniture was older and the beds were very noisy.
clean, comfortable room would stay again
The room is great, room service is good.
The people who works at the lobby are rude, there was cockroach in the bedroom, the fridge make a noice once in a while.
Convenience of the accommodation to all the attractions in Orlando - 1 mile to Walt Disney World.
No - this is my third visit to the resort and will definitely return next year.
close to theme park
walls were very thin, loud outside noises coming inside of room. bed was hard and old.
