“Lovely resort”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW via mobile

We stayed in this resort for the Disney leg of our travels. The resort itself is lovely, the apartments are clean and the staff are all so helpful. There was always a fresh supply of towels, coffee and other items. I would say the only thing that put me off was the RCI presentation we sat through. The agent was pushy and started getting impatient when he knew we weren't going to buy anything from him. I found the whole experience unpleasant and I don't think I will ever buy from RCI because of him.

Other than that, we really enjoyed this resort but I would stay clear of the RCI presentation and pay the extra for the parks rather!

Gorgeous pools and pool deck! Our room was perfect with great view of the pool. Very comfortable bed. Pool bar had specials throughout the day. Close to Disney ..actually the property backs right up to Disney property. Plenty of activities for children and teens. We have booked another long weekend in May!

My family and I stayed here for a week so we could visit all that Orlando had to offer. The location to the Disney parts is awesome, we had a number of short rides from long days at the parks. The staff was outstanding, it did not matter what time of the day we needed towels or something, the staff was more than ready to help us, all with a smile. The room was great, nice and clean. The pools were a welcome retreat on those hot days. When it was time to leave, that had a full business center available for free for us to print our boarding passes. I highly recommend this place, we will stay with them again!

Room Tip: All rooms were great.

We took a family Disney vacation and stayed (for the 3rd time) at our home resort at Silver Lake.....the week after Easter. This visit was by far our favorite based on the outstanding accommodations we had at the resort.
We stayed in the 1000 building in a two-bedroom unit. It's always interesting to view a unit for the first time and we were immediately greeted with a large living room with excellent furnishings including a 46-inch flat-screen TV, an amply-sized and equipped kitchen, a decent sized master bedroom with balcony (also accessible from the living room). The master bath was huge with a stand-up shower AND whirlpool tub. The second bedroom was a bit smaller with its own full bath.
The room was clean and perfect for our group....four adults and a one-year old.
We found the staff pleasant and informative for any of our needs. The main pool is large and clean. There was occasional entertainment poolside (a solo guitarist/singe...quite good; kids games; a karaoke night) and the adjacent cabana grill served great drinks and food (bar-type) by a very pleasant bartenders/waitress staff. The bar even had a flat-screen where you relax and watch the Masters golf tourney. We could have spent the week right there.
With the added value of being literally within a 5-minute drive to the Animal Kingdom entry gate and a ten-minute scoot to the entries at the Magic Kingdome, Epcot and Hollywood Studios why would you want to stay anywhere else unless your accommodations were inside Disney World itself.
October 2010 was our last visit to Silver Lake and at that time the facility was beginning a major improvement overhaul (painting, furnishings, overall updating throughout). Some of this work continues in other buildings but if that was going on we never knew. I can honestly say that although our stay then was decent the results of the capital improvements has made this a terrific place to stay and our family highly recommends it.
We found and commented that we would be hard-pressed to find any other facility that afforded us the value that Silver Lake did.
A great and relaxing time was had by all. All-in-all not one thing to complain about. Thus a well-deserved 5-star rating. We'll be back.

Stayed here on a timeshare presentation. I thought that they price there timeshares a little on the high side so did not buy. They actually had a no pressure sale. We were finished 10 minutes early so we sat and shared family pics on our phones. We had a 2 bedroom in the 900 building which was on the back side and away from most people which was fine with me. We had a nice pool back there and not as many people as the main one. We actually never even went to the main pool, we were happy where we were at. If you are going to stay here, go for the one bedroom or two bedroom if you are going to be in one of the older buildings, not an efficiency but in the new buildings their efficiency is a one bedroom.

Room Tip: If staying in an older building... ask to be away from the parking lot. We were in the 900 building...

The property has great facilities and is surrounded by Disney Theme Parks all reachable by shuttle busses. But for theme parks located further away, like Universal Studios, Universal Adventure Island and Aquatica, for example a paid service is necessary. To Orlando is even more of a problem, as a number of busses are needed to get there. Unless you are driving in, or renting a car, the remoteness of this place is a problem. Some dining and basic shopping are available on site, or if more is needed, a short ride in the car will get you to a shopping strip not too far out. The unit we stayed in was very comfortable, with good facilities, inclusive of washing machine, dryer, full kitchen and flat screen TV's in Lounge and Bedroom. Bed was very comfortable. Staff was very helpfull. All in all a great stay.

Room Tip: Room numbers 1700-1800-1900 have been built more recently.

Apartments are huge, very comfortable, clean and well equipped. Good location, near all the Disney parks. Unfortunately it was too cold to use the pool and hot tub, but they seemed very good. We had a great family vacation and would certainly return.
