“Excellent Family Vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

I was a little leery booking this resort due to the mixed reviews, but have to say what a great place! We are RCI members and booked a two bedroom unit for spring break to take our daughters to Disney. The two bedroom unit was very spacious! One of the largest we have stayed in. The unit and grounds were very clean and tidy, although there is no daily housekeeping, which is a nice treat when you are on vacation. The pool and activity center was spectacular. After spending a day poolside with numerous activities for the kids, we found our kids were just as happy poolside as at the parks. Get the activity schedule for the week once you arrive, and don't miss the kids pizza / movie night. Kids get pizza and games and movie in the resort movie theater for two hours one night during the week while the parents get a quick bite out or some time alone! Very well run!

Room Tip: Make sure you take the backway/ shortcut to Disney parks. If you exit from the back of the resort i...

My daughter and I just spent three nights at Silver Lake and it is the second villa unit we've tried in the area. It is just off of the Walt Disney World property. The units are large (a one bedroom had two bathrooms and room for six to sleep comfortably), quiet, clean and full of amenities and looked out on a nice view. Only problem was the need to carry everything up two flights of stairs but some units have elevators so ask if stairs are a problem.

Room Tip: Ask if you need an elevator because some of the older units are all stairs to upper floors.

The grounds are beautiful! They have several pools with a kiddie pool that my two young girls loved. Great cabana poolside for drinks, lunch or a snack. But to save money we brought a cooler poolside with food and drinks. The room was great and very convenient for us. Traveling with two young kids and a lot of clothes the washer/dryer in condo made it so easy for me to wash all our clothes before leaving after our week vacation. I loved the full kitchen and that they gave you serving dishes/utensils for more than 4 people plus pots, pans, coffee pot, blender a toaster and microwave. As if that all were not enough to make you happy, it gets better! Silver Lake is literally minutes from the Magic Kingdom, Epcot, animal kingdom and downtown Disney. The resort has a back gate that leads you directly to the Disney World attractions. We cannot wait to vacation here again!

My inlaws used their RCI points to stay here during Easter week. Based on the reviews I read, this place was loved or hated so I was a little worried. We did call ahead to ensure that our 2 bedroom unit was one of the recently updated ones.

The property is just off Hwy 192, south of Animal Kingdom which was a perfect location for us. Both entrances were monitored by security. Our check in process was very fast and the guest services specialist provided us with the activity calendar along with some additional discounts that we could have obtained if we toured the facitliies with a salesperson.

We stayed in the 1000 unit, second floor. They must have just cleaned the carpets since the odor was overwhelming but got better the following days. The unit was recently updated, with new kitchen appliances, granite countertops, washer/dryer. The living room was big with a nice flat screen TV, DVD player, and dining room table for 6. The only complaint is the huge red shag area rug. I can't imagine what type of leftovers would get stuck in there over time. Both bathrooms were nice. The master had a whirlpool tub and standup shower. Both bedrooms had comfortable king size beds with flat screen TVs. Also, a screened in patio was off the master bedroom and accessible via the living room. We did have to call maintenance once since our dishwasher pulled out of the cabinet and the bed headboard was loose but they fixed those issue right away.

They had three pools on site. One was off the clubhouse/check in area. This one we spent all our time at. It's huge! Lap pool, island in the middle of one side, volleyball net, poolside bar. This also was the area where they held activities for the kids. Top forty music from the satellite was playing along with a live musician one day. There was another pool right next to the big pool which really didn't make sense to me but it didn't have as many kids in it. Also a hot tub between the pools. The third pool was by our unit but it wasn't anything special so we didn't use it. You have to check out pool towels at the activity center which was a little bit of a hassle. You can also check out balls or shuffle board equipement there. We did use the basketball court one day which was nice. They also have video games and a workout room in this building.

Overall, I thought the staff from the front desk to the activity coordintators were friendly and I would recommend this resort. Not the biggest one I've been to (kids wished they had a waterpark) but the location was nice and overall it was pretty quiet.

Room Tip: Our room in the 1000 building was recently remodeled.

We rented a two bedroom 2 bath unit at Silver Lake Resort in Kissimmee. The resorts main claim to fame is it's 9000 square foot pool. And rightly so ! The water was incredibly warm. The pool is very interestly configured. Even has an island ! Hot tub is nearby with a snack bar

Besides the pool there's a good size fitness center and business/computer area. The grounds are nicely cared for. Plenty for the kids to do. The resorts employees are helpful. Many nearby places to eat and close to Disney attractions. Prices are also reasonable. We are going back again this year.

Room Tip: It's not a 5 star resort like many of the on site Disney Resorts but then again if money is a co...

The units were immaculate and in excellent like new condition. There is very convenient parking for every unit. The staff has been very hospitable & helpful. The Activities Directors for the children were just awesome & our 3 kids, 11 & 12 year old twins had a fantastic time. We needed Maintenace once and they were here with a smile in 5 minutes. The grounds are lovely & the pools were extremely clean & clear. The hot tub was a bit too hot for me but many guests enjoyed it. Our kiddos really enjoyed the game room & the new ping pong tables.

We can certainly see ourselves coming back here!!

This resort is in a nice location, just off Disney property. The rooms were ok....need updating, but we've stayed in worse. The WiFi was not free in the rooms and it was a pain to use. The pool area was very nice as well as the game room and workout area. Overall, we enjoyed a nice family vacation. Polish up the rooms and this will be a very nice resort!
