I consider myself something of an expert on Disney resorts since I have stayed in all but two of the Florida on-site resorts. Walking through Promised Land reminded me greatly of being in a Disney World resort. There are about 20 buildings, each two stories tall and having about 10-20 rooms on each floor. When you check in, they take you and your luggage to the room on a large golf cart.
The room itself was incredibly spacious--large bedroom and large bathroom. The bath had a tub plus a separate walk-in shower. The room was comfortable, except for the fact that the bed was much softer than I like.
The meal in the main restaurant are served buffet style and are mostly western food. In fact, the resort is supposed to be Gaudi-style (after the Spanish architect) and much of the restaurant food is Spanish. The buffet includes beverages (juices and soft drinks) as well as a large selection of desserts.
There is an outdoor theater with a free show each night, and it includes Flamingo as well as other western entertainment. The resort also offers a free canal boat ride through the beautifully landscaped resort. There is a large pool and other smaller pools in the resort, but the only hot tub is in the spa and there is a charge for that.
The second floor of the welcome building with the front desk has a lounge with a variety of newspapers and magazines, a kid play area, and several computers for free internet.
We only stayed one night because this stay was part of a tour, but I would have enjoyed spending more time at this resort.
