This is a massive resort with town home-type condos - there is parking directly in front of each unit. Our two-bedroom unit was very large, clean, and well-maintained. It included a small but fully-equipped kitchen, and washer/dryer. We were not expecting such nice accommodations at this price; previously we stayed at other comparable places in the area which were dated yet more expensive. It is not a full-service hotel; there is no daily room cleaning (unless you wish to pay for it) and no typical room service. This did not detract at all from our experience. We wanted to make our own breakfasts at the unit, then head out to the Orlando attractions for the day.
The pool areas are beautiful and well-maintained. There is no poolside service but each pool has at least one bar / eatery. There are ample sunbathing chairs; it was refreshing not to arrive at the pool only to find every seat "reserved" with a towel.
Other reviewers have complained about timeshare people hounding them. If you simply tell them you are not interested, they stop bothering you. If you are desperate to pick up some discounted attraction tickets, it is your own fault for wasting their time and yours by signing up for a sales pitch.
It takes about 30 minutes to briskly walk from one end of this complex to the other so expect to drive or take their shuttle service from your unit to the pool. We personally liked the walk, but there are no sidewalks in many areas.
Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. If you are expecting a hotel-type experience you will be disappointed but for those looking for spacious, quiet, home-like accommodations, it will likely be a good fit.
