“ok , but not fantastic”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2005

We stayed at the Starr Island resort from Dec. 30 to Jan 1, 2005. I have to say that the resort was very nice and clean. The only reason we choose this resort for our trip to Disney world was because another couple that went down with us were time share members. Check in went smoothly. We had a spacious room it was a"A" unit- it has a living room with microwave, supplies, sink and mini refrigerator and a room with 2 double beds.We only paid 99$ per night thru travelocity, the rate on the door said 175$, which I thought still wouldnt be bad if you had kids.
My complaint about the resort was that we were on the third floor, with no elevator, so stairs were the only option. There was no maid service which i didnt know about, but it wasnt the end of the world. There was a bag of garbage and 2 bins of linens that sat out in front of our room for the entire stay. I dont believe any guest stayed in the "B" unit, since I only saw staff members go in and out of that room. At night they would do laundry at 2am in that unit. The washing machine banged all night long and they would ring the door bell to get in. plus our toilet ran constantly. When we complained nothing was done, no apology, they just said that the "B" unit does have a washer and dryer.
Friends of ours had the same room as us,which they were disappointed with because they were time share members. However, on there last night stay they had to switch room bec. they were staying an extra night and got this amazing suite. It had a full kitchen, king size bed, large hot tub and huge bathroom. Overall our stay was so, so. I guess if we had children it would have been worth it.

After reading some of the reviews from earlier in the year I was very leary to stay at star island.We had been there before when it was brand new about 7 years ago. We checked in on Christmas day and found the staff to be very courteous and friendly.Our unit the "A" side was small but very clean and no sign of "bed bugs". The bathroom floor needed some attention and with one phone call it was taken care of. We traded into this resort and got a studio-still wondering about that as we traded a 1 bedroom.Facilities were good pool beautiful with daily activities for the kids.Good security and nice amenities. Check out at 10 am but the staff very accomodating about letting you hang at the pool after check out until afternoon.
