We stayed here for one night at the end of our vacation. The front desk employees were professional and attentive to our needs, letting us check in early when we arrived before our scheduled time. Our room was clean and nice! We especially liked the bamboo laminate floors. It just feels so much cleaner! The room was well-appointed with everything... More

I definitely recommend this resort, the pictures you see on their website is EXACTLY what you see when you get there, the staff is super friendly from check-in to the poolside bar to checkout. We played volleyball with lots of other people and swam until midnight. Our room was comfortable and clean, the resort is within walking distance to dining,... More

We stayed at the hotel for eight days. Housekeeping is awful. They didn't come one day. They never left any coffee. They would make one bed but not the other. Service from the front desk was great. Concierge was wonderful. Don't be fooled by the shuttle. It's annoying, it doesn't go straight to some of the parks. For a place... More

My husband and I came for our 15 year anniversary. Location is everything!!! Restaurant steps away from the resort. Very close to theme parks and shopping. The staff was very helpful. It is also family friendly.

There were mixed reviews on this hotel, but my son was bringing 2 friends and he thought the pic of the room was cool. I had my concerns, as usually the pictures are the only good thing about a hotel. We travel to Orlando a lot; this hotel, BY FAR, has been the best I have ever stayed at. I... More
