“A Complete Resort.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

This is a large time-share resort located very close to Walt Disney World. We traded in for a week in February and were delighted with the experience. We stayed in a golf villa in the West Village, the oldest section of the resort and while the unit showed some signs of its age, the property is maintained in immaculate condition and calls for maintenance were answered in what seemed like minutes. The 2BR, 2 B unit was well-furnished and stocked for convenience. The resort is huge and spread out, containing 3 golf courses, about 7 pools, several water parks, and complimentary shuttle services on the property and to adjoining shopping. Shuttle service is also provided to area theme parks. There are food services on the property and literally unending options outside the resort. There are planned activities all day, every day, for all age groups in the various recreation areas.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

We stayed a week in one of the villas on this vast property. There are 4 golf courses and as many pool complexes. The grounds, all 1400 acres, are beautiful and well cared for. The golf courses are wonderful! Our lodging unit, a 2 bedroom villa, was only marginally clean and scantily equiped with cooking/eating utensils. We shared the lodging with 2 other close friends and it was suitable for the 4 of us. You would not want many more people in the 2 bedroom unit we were in. Holiday Inn, owner of the property, will try to get you to attend a sales pitch to purchase a time share. Unless you are seriously interested I do not recommend it. A one hour pitch stretched into 2 hours and became quite pressured toward the end.
Overall we had a good experience at this conveniently located property.

Room Tip: The River Island complex is the newest and most luxurious part of the resort.

Although the resort is packed with things to do.. there where many things such as the comfort (or lack there of) of the beds, pillows, couches etc... that we did not like. The proximity to Disney world is fantastic. The grounds are well maintained and the staff was pleasant (what little we saw of them). Do not expect housekeeping in any of the condos. We certainly didn't see anyone. All in all our stay was enjoyable but it's not something we would like to buy into. We would however chose to stay again..but with lower expectations of course.

Very impressive tactility. The rooms and amenities give Marriott a run for their money. We stayed in a two bedroom suite facing the pool. It was a wonderful view as we sat on the veranda each morning and had our coffee. Speaking of coffee unlike many timeshares it was provided along with all of the other standard fare (iron, board, etc. etc.) There were pools and lazy rivers, golf (miniature and real), Starbucks, and restaurants. Certainly enough to keep everyone entertained. On top of that it is a short hop over to Disney World, Downtown Disney and Kissimmee. The only drawback was having a concierge who was not very familiar with Disney World.

We were guests of new owners on February 9th. I left a bath wrap behind the door. We had to move to another villa and as we were moving out the cleaning ladies were coming in at the same time. When we got to the new site in the East Village I realized that I had left the wrap behind the door. I called the Villa that we were staying in and they were very nice and said they checked every door and that it wasn't there......my question is....where is it? I was told that many people go into the Villas after the owners move out. This may be true but I am concerned as to the level of security for items left behind. It was only a bath wrap but I wonder if I had left something more valuable - would I ever see it again...............also the Shuttle's only take you part way in the complex ....you have to get off one and wait for another one to take you to your final destination.........this is not convenient at all.

This is a very large timeshare resort, but it's almost too big. Everything is very spread out. I felt like I was driving to the next town to go to the arcade. The rooms are very well kept with all you need, including pots pans etc, full kitchen, ironing board and iron, dishwasher, washer and dryer, hair dryer, screened in balcony with table and chairs. The facilities were clean and comfortable.

There is no daily maid service since it is a timeshare, but there was not even a mid-week service. There was constant calls and messages to do a time-share tour, which were mostly ignored, except when you want to sleep in and receive an 8:30 am call (upsetting)

We had a very nice golf-course view, which left my husband wishing he brought his clubs. A Publix grocery store at the facility entrance was very helpful to buy all you needed and a strip of restaurants near by if you don't want to cook.

This is all near Disney World and made for a quick trip to the World by car. This was a nice visit but not sure I would do it again.

Hello and thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us. We are glad to see that overall you enjoyed your stay with us, but disappointed that parts of your vacation did not live up to your expectations. You are correct that we are a larger resort. However, all of our amenities are within a five minute drive of each other from each end of the resort. We do differ from a traditional hotel stay in that we do not offer daily housekeeping services. We find that many of our guests enjoy the added privacy that this adds. However, housekeeping services are available any time on demand. We do also offer club rental at any of our courses. We would love the opportunity to host you again, to show you just how much fun vacationing with us can be.
