“Awesome Resort”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

We just got back from a week stay at this resort and it was great!
It is a smaller resort but we like it that way and you wont have to drive your car to go to the pool or any other place at the resort
the location is great, handy to Disney and restaurants. The room was spacious and updated, we had a 2 bed room unit with a balcony.
When we arrived, the toilet in the master batch was not flushing correctly but someone responded to our call in about 15 min to fix it and you cant beet that.
I would recommend this resort to anyone!

Parking lot covered in trash, buildings un-kept, furniture in room looks second hand from a junk yard. TV a 15" . Did not feel safe due to the people hanging around in the parking lot. It looked like a flop house for the homeless. The pictures on the Internet must be 10 years old.
Stay away.....

Loved the room. 3 bedroom, 3 bath, 2 kitchens, 2 living rooms, 2 balconies. Beds comfy and linens crisp. Hard but with deep padding you sink into. Slept great. Modern furniture. 5 flat screens. Washer and dryer. Free laundry soap. Great shampoo, soap and conditioner from Bath and Body Works. Jacuzzi tub in master bathroom. Movie theatre nice with mostly current stuff. Only 2 shows per day at 5 and 7. Wish they had a 9 and 11 for something to do later at night. Bummer that. Hot tub was good and hot but unfortunately they don't enforce the no children rule. Pools are heated but not really. You could swim but it wasn't pleasant except between noon and 4 when it was warm out. Other heated pools at Discovery Cove and Aquatica gave us a good comparison to go by. BBQ grills are small and charcoal instead of gas. Kitchen nicely stocked with the basics. If its not there and you need it, just ask. They have other stuff available that is not in the rooms. Staff friendly. Grounds nice. No bugs to be found. Didn't notice any noisy neighbors and the walls didn't appear as paper thin as the other reviews suggest. Check in and check out was quick and painless. Optional maid service available for a fee. Cabana bar at pool was ok. Happy hour beer prices ok for beer. Worst frozen drinks ever though. You can bring your own food and drinks down to the tables, they are just not allowed on what they consider the wet deck or in the water. There are no plastic cups in room so grab some at the store. I had no problems with the internet. There is a fee if you want it in the room. $27 but you also get discounts all over and paper delivery. Good bargain compared to what I've seen at other places. If you do the timeshare presentation its worth about $75.00. For that we didn't bother and they didn't push. Gym was nice. There is a sauna. Call ahead and they will heat it up for you. Everything you need as far as gift shops, beer, gas, groceries, fast food, restaurants, dollar stores, target, and more buffets than i could count nearby on the main strip (192). No pets allowed so i wouldn't ever buy here but I'll probably stay here again next time. Very nice and convenient.

Clean - it was very clean. The furniture in good shape and clean. Sheets, towels and 6 pillows on the bed! The kitchen was fully stocked, but I have a few comments here. I went a bought a drinking glass. The largest in the room were the wine glasses. The others were juice size. BTW - no dishwasher. Several buildings at this resort and 3 pools. Heated? Well, depends on what you call heated. There may have been a heater somewhere but it took some getting used to when you got into the water. Activities seemed plenty but we usually don't take part in them. The morning breakfast was the bait and I have been there done that, and no more. I have 2 timeshares and I am very happy with them. THey did offer discount tickets, but like they say, if it seems too good to be true, it usually is. We didn't go there either! Staff seemed very friendly. I have no complaints. I was expecting free wireless in the room, but that was in the lobby only. These days, wireless should be expected to be part of the room. Not an additional fee charged for it. So, I say go and enjoy. I would go back without even thinking twice!

Room Tip: We were by the pool away from the other 2. Quiet and not crowed

I stayed in a 3 br deluxe lockoff unit for a few days, the heated pools were excellent, the room was good too (the bedroom TV's were tiny though) the activities were fun and Id stay here again with my family. lots of things to do here to keep you busy. The only thing I missed having was a nice walking trail.

If you are looking for a nice place this is it, but do NOT expect honesty from them! Upon arriving for a Disney week, we received a piece of paper from the resort's guest services saying we could purchase discounted tickets for Universal and Disney World theme parks saving up as much as $100. The only problem was they stated Disney park tickets run regularly at $203, but we could purchase it from them for $145 giving us a $58 savings. THAT IS A LIE!!!!!! Disney tickets for a one day at Magic Kingdom start at $95!!!!!!!!! They are lying and scheming to make money on their customers expense. We had already purchased tickets from a Disney store at the REAL PRICES so this scam did not effect, but it infuriates me for the ones who do not know better! If they lie about that, what else do they lie about!? AND THERE IS NO FREE WIFI!!!!! It cost $26 for a week and that is only good for 2 devices!!!!! We did purchase the wifi, but it was so slow that we could NOT use it, and they WOULD NOT refund the purchase!!!!

Stayed here one week Sunday to Sunday in 1700 building. Had a small issue with ants in bedroom but maintenance came right away to spray. Really nice pool area with lots of chairs and tables. I think this time of year not so busy. Really close to Disney using back entrance. One bedroom condo - teenagers stayed in bed that was comfortable. Sofa bed wasn't bad after you layered bedspread and other blankets below fitted sheet. It was fine for me as I like a firm mattress. 24 hour security and front desk meant really easy check in after late flight and check out for early flight. Only negative would be no free wifi in room but free Internet available in lobby but was slow.
