I booked for two families to stay at World Quest Resort in October/November 2012 and we had a two bed and three bed apartment each.
What can I say, the resort is fantastic and the apartments are five star in my opinion.
I am quite fussy about accommodation on holiday and the World Quest exceeded my expectations.
Our two bed apartment was HUGE!! We had a master bedroom with a six foot bed, large flat screen TV and an ensuite with marble countertops, his and hers basins, a large closet with a safe, a huge walk in shower AND a Jacuzzi bath. The kitchen/living area was also very large with a well set up kitchen, massive American fridge freezer, oven, hob, microwave etc etc. Our kids shared an ample sized double bedroom with their own bathroom, a large flat screen TV and built in closet. I won’t wax lyrical any more about the accommodation but what you see in the photos of the apartments on the website is what you get and it is very impressive.
Free wifi was a bonus as well.
My brother and his family were in the three bed and it was also fantastic.
The resort is beautifully clean and well maintained. The pool area and Jacuzzi is lovely and the loungers and pool furniture are of a high quality thus adding to the feeling of luxury that World Quest offers. I stayed at Ceasars Palace in Las Vegas a couple of years ago and the pool area reminded me of theirs in a small way
World Quest offers breakfast for guests which consists of a variety of bagels, pastries, toast and fruits with juices and hot drinks. Although the breakfast is not exhaustive by American standards you must bear in mind that this resort offers self catering apartments and you do have all the facilities to provide for your family at breakfast in your apartment so I would say that the breakfast provided should be considered a bonus and therefore I cannot criticise it.
I was a little concerned that the cereal/milk/hot drink preparation room was a small space and I would urge parents not to allow young children into this area for fear of any possible scalding accidents. I do feel that this is something that needs to be addressed but if parents are diligent with their children a problem should not occur.
All the staff were polite and helpful and Karen the Concierge was an absolute star. She was extremely helpful and always addressed our needs efficiently and confidently. By the way, we bought all our park tickets via Karen prior to our arrival and they worked out way cheaper than even the “combo” deals you can get online.
We visited Florida purely to go to the parks but we decided if we went back we would not only stay here again but I think we would spend a little more time relaxing by the luxurious pool!
If I do have one small criticism it would be that the resort is poorly signposted and thus very difficult to find and for all its grandeur the hotel sign on the 535 is not lit up at night and also stands perpendicular to the road so it is not easy to see, even in daylight. When we did finally find the resort and report of our difficulties in finding it to reception they did comment that “everybody says that”.
Please World Quest, address this, you are selling yourselves short with the entrance! You deserve better signage!
So, in summary, I would highly recommend World Quest to everyone. The accommodation is excellent, the resort is beautiful and the location for the parks is superb. When we return to Florida it will be our first choice (now we know how to find it!)..
Trust me, you won't be disappointed.
