Normal holiday at The Fountains in Orlando, which is a really great resort with 2 huge pools, a restaurant and bars at each pool. The accommodation is of the highest standard with top of the range appliances. Solara Surfside is at the other end of the spectrum. It is a cramped site, tired looking, awful decor, disgusting carpets and old... More

I stayed in a 1-BR apt for 3 nights. I got a caring welcome after a LONG day of driving, the last part in driving rain. Both Junior, the receptionist, & Hilliard, the valet who also brought my cart of bags up, were VERY helpful. The concierge had valuable food shopping & restaurant tips. Near end-Sept is a bad time...

My husband and I visited this resort in September, we had a 1br condo on the 7th floor. I can only say good things, we had a great ocean view, the concierge was very helpful, the valet parking was expensive but we didn't have to worry about the rental car, and the property was clean, well managed, and well kept.

We stayed here last year, August 2013, which happened to concur with my sisters 14th birthday. One of her requests was to get a real coconut from a palm tree. So we decided to inquire if this was possible and to our surprise, one of staff members told us he would try his bets to get her a coconut (and... More

I stayed 3 nights in May and this hotel helped me to enjoy my first Miami vacation. Aside from the confusing entrance from the road it was a gem. The room was exactly how it appeared on advertisements. That moment that travelers look forward to when they open their room door was a "ahhh" instead of a "oh no". It... More

Clean, spacious rooms, with full kitchen and floor by floor updates coming in October. Small exercise room that faces the pool but lots of equipment. Clean pool, jacuzzi and pool deck with a variety of easy listening music playing. Game room, light refreshments and activities room coordinated by Kramer. Thanks Kramer, I thoroughly enjoyed the Yoga (I'm feeling it today!)... More

We spent 4 nights here in late April and it was a wonderful and relaxing time. The unit we stayed in (1 bedroom - #307) was clean and spacious. The only downfall was the lack of view of the ocean. Maybe if you were higher up you would be able to see it. Being able to get lounge chairs, for... More
