We stayed here for two weeks from 24/7/14. We booked a package holiday through Virgin (so no resort fees) and choose this hotel as we could upgrade to a suite and because of the location of the hotel. We had an island suite which was roomy and had 2 very comfortable beds in the bedroom area and a bed settee... More

We did get these little bugs on one of the tables, but that didn't bother is much. The bed was... More

Cons: - The parking lot was very dark at night. - Recommend the check-in staff provide a brochure or more information about the Disney bus arrival/departure schedule and surrounding attractions upon check-in. - A Continental Breakfast should be included with every reservation. Pros: - Volleyball, basketball and tennis courts availability were nice. - Nice idea for the kids about finding... More

But this is the last time! We checked in around 10 pm, and after settling in I noticed a wooden stick (the type that... More

My family and I are just ending a four day trip to Orlando. I selected this hotel because from the pictures and reviews, it looked very nice. Once we got here, the main lobby did not disappoint - it looks very clean and tastefully done. The receptionist at the reception desk was also very nice and friendly. However, once we... More

I was hesitant to stay here after reading some of these reviews , but am pleased to say this hotel is absolutely fine. Reservations went out of their way to be kind, service at the front desk was superb, genuine and friendly. The food is decent, better than I expected. The room is perfectly clean and looks like it's been... More

Myself and my partner stayed here for 14 nights between the 1-15 August. We arrived at the hotel by pre arranged shuttle and were welcomed by the friendly valet staff who more than welcome to help with our bags - without hanging round for a tip afterwards!! We headed to reception and were quickly checked in. We were given the... More
