“Unappealing and unsafe place to stay!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

We chose Regal Palms because the picture of the pool area on the website looked amazing. We soon found out just the opposite. The pool area in the evening/at night was a VERY unsafe place to be!!!!! There was nothing inviting about the condo we stayed in. There were ants in the sofa. We did not have enough towels, asked for more, but never got them. The kitchen was not well stocked at all. Had to improvise a lot. There was a dish towel but no dish rag or sponge. Front desk told us that we had to supply that. Carpet had stains. Surprisingly, the beds were pretty comfortable. It was a 30 minute drive to Disney. I say it again, the pool area in the evening/at night was a VERY unsafe place to be.

Ok E rentes à home through à we site. Thé house was Nice but thé furnitures were scratched, not enough kitchen ustensiles, pots, plates. Aged amenities.... But thé Kingston seize bed was ok, And à big plus : thé réal bath in thé bathroom. Too far away from thé pool : we had to drive to thé pool.... is Not as big as you CAN imagine.... À big déception éventhough when you think twice, some basic stuff bought at walmart And dollar tree could havé made à big difference for not much! I ve been renting proporties in Florida for t'en years And it s thé worse.

Room Tip: Take à home not too close to thé gâte or thé pool, not in à crossing

The Regal Palms is a self service condo complex. I have been there 4 times in several different units. Each time the complex was quiet and well maintained. The condos were clean and well stocked. The price for the condos was exceptional for the size. The complex has a great pool with slide and lazy river and hot tub to finish the night.

Just got back from a week long family vacation at Simon's home at Regal Palms and it was awesome! My husband, myself our four children(16, 9, 5, 2) and my mother in law all had a great time. Simon made the booking process so easy and he provided all the necessary information regarding the home and the resort and surrounding areas so we felt very well informed. Simon's home was beautiful and emasculate, exactly as described. Everything we needed was provided and it was just a short walk to the pools. It was also in close proximity to Disney World, Sea World, Target and many other attractions, shops and eateries. Great location!
My family loved the pools, especially the lazy river and the water slide. The entire pool area was absolutely gorgeous and well maintained. We also got to visit Banana Jacks which the kids loved.

We will definitely be returning to RP and booking through Simon. We've already told several friends about our stay so they can have a great vacation as well!

Laura's Villas at Regal Palms was clean and spacious! This is a quiet gated resort that perfectly suited our vacation needs. The home had all the conveniences, including washer/ dryer & dishwasher, television, & internet. The villa was also located close to grocery stores & restaurants. The pool was family friendly with water slide & a lazy river. We were able to visit all the Orlando hot spots like Disney & Sea World by car with the highway so close. Driving to the attractions is easy & convenient.

Clean, organised, spacious, cool, quiet and very very comfortable.
We booked with Simon and it couldn't have gone smoother.
Everything we needed was there. Roomy living room with a dining table, TV, Satellite, DVD player, washer, dryer, coffee machine, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms upstairs, toilet downstairs, air conditioning, towels and bed linen etc etc.
I came home with no dirty clothes at all as I was able to wash them all.

Supermarket & chemist amongst other shops a stones throw away, and the water park is fabulous.
The staff are friendly and very helpful.

The main problems I had were arguments amongst the kids and deciding where everyone wanted to go for the day.
The sauna and steam rooms were dated and not very hot at all but really - that was the only thing there that could have done with attention in my view.

It's extremely reasonably priced accommodation and easy to get the pla es as long as you have a car - I don't know anyone who has been to Florida and not hired a car unless they are in a resort hotel like Disney!!
It's too big a place to see properly if you don't have a car.

Can't wait to go back again.
Thanks a million Simon

Room Tip: Book with Simon - very reliable!

We arrived after a 24 hour journey and were given the keys by a helpful chap in reception. When we got to the house it had not been cleaned from the last visitors. I don't mean cleaned badly, I mean totally missed. I went to reception and was told 'Sorry'. I asked for a different house and was told that I would have to pay for it. In the end we had to find a nearby hotel, at our expense. We were told that the house would be ready for 11am, the next day. We returned, and it wasn't ready, we were told 1pm. Then 3pm.....we finally got in at 4:30. We asked for compensation for the hotel and hassle and were told that we would get a call from the boss at 8am the following day, it never arrived. After a week, we were directed to a new lady called Samantha, who would be brilliant and sort it all out as all of the previous staff had left. She said sorry but there was nothing that she could do. Unbelievable service, or lack of it.
