“Summer bay Houses...(AMAZING)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2010

We stayed at summer bay a few times now and admit....The houses spoil you.
2 Master suites with a private VERY WARM pool....Sliding door open to the living area and you have full access.
You also have a private garage and own drive.
Everything you need to enjoy and great holiday.....Minutes to 192 Highway where you find everything you need....Publix's is on property and easy to get to....You need a car.
Also the resort has great activites for kids....Pools and beach on site also if you want to mingle.
About 10 minutes to the parks...
WARNING !!!!
We have stayed in the Villas before .............Don't bother....They are old and walls are thin and you will not enjoy it.....
The CONDOS are good but NOT the VILLAS.....They are different ...Be aware.
100 series Villas are wood frame and old......400 and 500 are new and concrete...
You have been told.....
Also ,,,,,,,,,,,,the internet SUCKS and you have to pay for it.............Complain and maybe they will get a free system that actually works like everywhere else....It just Sucks.
Also if you do the timeshares...Save 3 hours but hey you get free tickets worth around $200.00 so have breakfast on them and say no thank-you.....

Booked a 2 bedroom condo using the 800 number on the Summer Bay web site that offered special package deals for travelers. When the confirmation was emailed to us it just stated that you are in a 2 bedroom condo, so you assume that you are staying at Summer Bay Resort. When we reached Orlando on March 27th we found out that we weren't booked into Summer Bay Resort at all but placed in an overflo condo a few miles away. It wasn't a resort at all but a referbished condo with a pool. If this happens to you don't expect Summer Bay to come to your rescue. We weren't offered any alternative accomodations and our money wasn't refunded. Our dream vacation was ruined. Due to the conditions of the off site location we refused to check in and had to find last minute accomodations at our own expense. BUYER BEWARE

Rci put us in a villa as a member I guess that's what you get, well a villa is a small room with two bdrm and a tiny kitchen. it was rated silver crown, I should have known better. I upgraded to a condo, which I should have gotten in the first place. It cost me another 360 Us, the condo was more like what we usually get in a gold crown. The activities were non existent at the pools for kids. They have and activities club, but everything is on a schedule, Orange Lake was way better, can do crafts whenever, they have guitar hero set up all the time, table tennis, and activities poolside some of the time. This place is ok, but if you have a choice go to Sheraton Vistana or Orange Lake, this one doesn't compare.

My family and I stayed in the resort for a week. It was a very nice resort. The staff was great and the grounds were absolutely beautiful. It's just the beds were so hard!. My husband and I did not enjoy the sleep at all. No the resort is full service and has everything you need. We did notice that the condo was very old and dated. it was clean, but needed to be updated. We had a kitchen but it was old too. The appliances need to be updated as well. We saved money because we went through RCI. We went to our presentation, and there was no real pressure to buy a timeshare, they tried. but we did enjoy our stay.

After trading a crown level resort for this, I would rate our room as fair-. The carpet had stains and some rippling. We stayed in building 103- Room 201. Maybe it's the older section, because it looks like they recently painted, kitchen is clean, master bathroom was nice. The other bathroom had rotting molding near floor, and the place smelled musty, so I bought a vanilla candle. Couch looks older. I noticed other properties there looked more modern/ updated. Maybe if I complained more we could have moved, but we didn't spend a lot of time there. Our kids enjoyed the pool at main lobby area more than the one 2 buildings over. It was colder water there. No bugs noted.

When we drove up, it seemed to be a nice location with nice ammenites. However, once we got in our rental house, we were disgusted. It was dirty, rugs were stained, there was mold around the bath and showers. When we woke up in the morning, there were ants in our bathroom. The WORST part of all was, the alarm that is on the doors going out to the pool, were broken. This was unacceptable and unsafe! We had 3 children with us (2,5 and 7). When we informed the resort, they did NOTHING about it. They wouldn't even move us. They were incredibly rude and had no regard for this safety issue. I'm sure there are nice homes in the resort, but this wasn't the one. The employees, including the manager should be ashamed of the way we were treated!!!!!!!

I'm not sure what problems others may have had, but our stay went very well. The resort property is well kept. The room was smaller than some we have stayed in, but they tell you this on the resorts web page. The staff was very helpful, and always pleasant. There was a minor inconvience when we entered the room (carpet stain), but with one call the entire carpet was cleaned immediately. The resort Security is highly visiable, and being an old Cop that made me happy. The only real problem we had was the inconsiderate traveler that acts as if there is no one else at the resort but them. You know the one. Loud, slams doors, and doesn't care who they annoy. Not the resorts fault. I think these people just follow me. And if your this person, please be more considerate. Then everyone can have a great holiday. BTW, be wary of the sales pitch. The sales folks are quite pushy.
