“OK Place with a Great Location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

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.

Room Tip: Request a renovated room! We were located in 18409 had an awesome view of the fireworks at disney...

Our family stayed here for a week and visited Disney and Universal. It was a 10-15 minute drive to the Disney parks, and about a 30-minute drive to Universal. Located in a quiet area but still close to restaurants, shops, grocery stores, etc. The villa was very spacious and comfortable. It was nice to have our own kitchen, private screened patio, laundry, and living room. The kids loved playing in the pool and doing the craft activties organized by the resort. The restaurant service was great and the food was good and reasonably priced.

This was our second time staying here. The rates were great and the grounds are beautiful. My husband plays golf and has enjoyed playing there last time. however this time it rained the day before and the course was in bad shape, however there was no incentive given to play and they charged regular rates. I thought it would have been a good gesture to offer a discounted rate to golfers as the course was muddy. We spent most of the time at the pool, which was great. I loved staying there and will probably go back.

we love staying here. This trip was our second time and we plan on staying there again in the fall. The resort has some nice pools and the putt-putt was fun. Its clean and spacious. we had a separate bedroom, kitchen,washer dryer, and pull out sofa bed in the living room. the wi-fi stinks but that was ok.

This resort was beautiful inside and out. I would highly recommend they find a better cleaning crew though. I got into the shower and there was hair all over it and you could tell the walls had just been sprayed and not cleaned. The one bedroom villa was nice and spacious with updated appliances. I wouldn't recommend signing up for the timeshare presentation as my husband and I were told its better to buy a timeshare than a home by 3 different people. They practically pushed us into a wall. Overall, Taylor the front desk agent should get a raise or promotion...she was awesome.

We were more than happy with our stay at this resort. Our one-bedroom, one-bath condo was modern, spotlessly clean, and ultra comfortable, and it was very convenient to Disney and a multitude of restaurants. We had a kitchen that lacked only an oven and dishwasher (but we didn't need them), a flat-screen TV in the living room and a second TV in the bedroom, and a huge jacuzzi tub in the corner of the bedroom. The bed was wonderfully comfortable, too, like one you'd find in a top-of-the-line hotel. Free transportation was available to Disney and several other attractions, and there were three pools and a gorgeous golf course--and putt-putt for those of us who don't golf. The staff was extremely helpful and quick to bring us anything we requested. Our only issue was the Internet service, which initially didn't work at all--without my husband's tweaking (he's a broadcast engineer & well-trained in IT). The router in the room didn't work, and after two days of calling and trying to get someone's help who knew their system, one guy finally told my husband the router was located in the wall, close to the TV. My husband found it (non-working)--and a second one--in the wall, and he was able to connect an Ethernet cable directly to the second one to successfully connect. Their "wireless Internet" was absolutely non-existent. Most people may not need it, but we had to do a little work, unfortunately. All in all, though, it was a wonderful, relaxing stay in a luxurious, beautiful resort.

I stayed there on 5/30/13 because of reviews read on this site. The hotel looks impressive from a distance but the room was not clean and the very dated. The internet did not work at all. The desk said it would be fixed in an hour. It was never fixed. Apparently the the facility had exceeded their bandwith which means you will not get online.
I needed the internet to send medical notes and RX to local pharmacys. I am a physician and I would not stay there again.
Also , when you first walk into the place they try to talk you into listening to a time share speech. Stay away .

Room Tip: Find another hotel.
