I stayed with a friend for four days who was an owner (timeshare). We were in the "Fountains" section, building 37, unit #1546. My friend ask for one of the newer updated condos since her regular unit was being refurbished. It was gorgeous! All dark cherry wood furnishings, granite counter tops, travertine tile in the bathrooms. Three flat screen TVs,... More

Just got back from ten nights at Sheraton Vistana. We requested a room in the Lakes or Fountains area at the time of booking as we'd read that these were the best areas on site to stay. Sent them an email beforehand to confirm our request and got an email straight back to say it had been noted but could... More

Overall our stay at this resort was good. The rooms are a little outdated and needless to say falling apart but the onsite amenties are great. The resort features 7 pools, many restaurants, is very large featuring beautiful gardens and fountains and offers tons of activities for families. The staff is pretth friendly as well. Like I stated earlier, I... More

. . . I would have had a great time! We were determined to visit as many pools on the property as we could and did manage to get to most of them, but then I fell ill and had to be on antibiotics so could not venture in to the sun very much. Weather in the evenings was typical... More

We have just come back from a two week stay at Sheraton Vistana Resort, Orlando. We requested a recently refurbished apartment and got one in the Fountains area of the resort. It was a fabulous apartment, large living/dining area and kitchen (with a dishwasher, no washing up for two weeks, heaven!). A large en-suite bedrooom with a spa bath in... More

We returned last week from the most disappointing vacation of our lives. Some of the factors were definitely not the fault of the Sheraton Vistana, such as a medical issue, but they did not make anything easier for us. First of all, get a RENTAL CAR. We were told one was not necessary due to the in-house shuttle service. Our... More

We returned today from the sheraton vistana resort. This was our first visit to orlando and overall I have to say it didn't live up to expectations but the vistana resort certainly exceeded them. I was really disappointed when we arrived not to get a refurbed unit but I honestly cannot now not see what all the fuss was about.... More

We had a great week. We stayed in the Fountains section, Building 32, suite 1517. It was one of the recently renovated areas, the room was very spacious, with new furniture and flat screen tvs in the 2 bedrooms and living room. Our screened in patio overlooked the pool and even had a door that went towards the pool which... More
