We stayed 5 nights in a 1 bedroom deluxe. We arrived to check-in around 2:00pm and requested a suite on the top floor near a pool. The clerk said he had nothing available but would put the request in for one to be prepared, asked us to leave our cell phone number and he would contact us as soon as it was available. We decided to go to the grocery store to get a few necessities and take a ride around to find out what was in the area (the location is within a few miles of all Disney parks). We waited until 5:00pm to return to the resort (not having received the call that our room was ready). As we returned to the office we received a call from a different clerk stating that our room was not going to be ready anytime soon and offered us an upgraded suite at a discounted rate, which seemed like an ok deal but left us feeling like we were being tricked into purchasing an upgrade because they prey on people who are tired from traveling and just want to get into their rooms. We accepted the upgrade because of these exact reasons. The room was very clean, located on the top floor of building 18, which is nearest the courtyard pool. This area was nice and quiet and located near the entrance of the resort (the resort is huge). As I stated the suite was very clean, but very dated (the television was older then my daughter who has graduated from college), however it does seem they are trying to renovate most of the room/buildings and I imagine that a complex this size does require extra time to renovate. We had an awesome view of Magic Kingdom's fireworks in the evening. While we were there we visited 3 of the 4 pools, all pools were very clean and well stocked with towels. We enjoyed the Courtyard Pool because it was very quiet and relaxing with plenty of chairs in the shade. We visited the Lagoon Pool a few days in the afternoon and found it to be very crowded and noisy as this is the pool with water slide and tiki bar. We enjoyed a few cocktails at the tiki bar and found the bartender (Leila) to be very friendly and enjoyed making whatever drink you wanted. The Terrace Pool was very similar to the Courtyard Pool but a lot more people. We had dinner a few evening at the restaurant Kenzie’s and found the food to be below average. We ordered a few different items off the menu and really didn’t find anything that wowed us. They have a different theme every night and our favorite was Caribbean Night (they had a guy playing steel drums and the food was themed after the Caribbean). The resort is very large and private off of the main road; we rented a car and are extremely glad we did. The resort offers shuttle service to several parks (with limited times) as well as to/from all of the resort amenities and was very easy to arrange, just dial 1 from your room or ask the pool attendant or the bartender to call for the shuttle and within a few minutes they were there. All staff we encountered was super friendly! We were not approached about sitting through the sale pitch, which we had decided we were going to decline. We have been to many timeshare resorts in Florida/US and found Mystic Dunes to be below average as far as room quality and amenities. However, we scored an awesome deal on Hotwire.com and paid practically nothing compared to others we chatted with. I am confident to say that we would not return to this resort because it is too large and needs many renovations. This place was very nice but just not our style.
