“What a really nice hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2014

Me my wife and son stayed at this hotel from the 1st. of march till the15th we had booked a one bedroom grand suit, which was exactly what we were looking for, space for both us and our teenage son,the bedroom and living room both had flat screen tv´s, complete kitchen, washer dryer, bathroom with walk in shower and separate spa type tub, balcony that over looked the pool area, we were on the 7th floor room 703,always clean and the bed was comfy the sofa bed could have had a thicker mattress but did not stop my son from sleeping.
Pool area was nice and clean, plenty of clean towels, bar/ snack bar good, great service from Mark where ever he was working in the hotel, always stopped to ask if we needed anything or to give handy advice all in all a genuine nice guy, all the staff were friendly and helpful, rose and katelin on the front desk also the manager was all ways about and helpful.
This hotel is about a 8 to 10 min. walk to international drive.
The hotel provides a shuttle service to most of the parks, has free wifi.
This was our 5th visit to orlando but the first to this hotel and if in future we visit again we would defanatly stay in this hotel.

Booked a week in the Point Orlando and was pleasantly surprised about the location. Wet n Wild is across the road (literally!) and it is a 5 minute walk to many restaraunts such as iHop, Ponderosa, the Black Angus steakhouse and many more. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the rooms are well kited out and kept very clean. The free shuttle to the parks is very handy and Universal Studios is only $6 in a taxi. Both me and my fiance loved the hotel and would definitely recommend it to anyone.

Frank, thank you so much for your review. You are absolutely right that the location of the resort is perfect as we are minutes away from major theme parks and walking distance from some great dining options. We appreciate you mentioning the friendly service that you received as well. Thanks for the recommendation, we hope to welcome you back again in the future!

Very clean and friendly staff. Close to universal studios/island of adventures and wet n wild. Loved the rooms, my room had a full kitchen and a washer and dryer! Loved the jet bath tub as well. I would definitely stay here again.

We stayed here for two nights of our 12 day trip in Florida. We visited Disney a few years ago but wanted to go to Universal and Wet n' Wild this year. We booked this hotel for the three days that we spent in Orlando. Great choice! Nice comfy beds and clean open rooms. There is a pull out bed in the couch and a little kitchenette. I loved that your room is inside of another door leading to the hallway keeping out the noise of rude guests that think of no one but themselves when coming back late or leaving early :( Great location if you are doing Universal and very close to stores and a variety of great restaurants. Staff is very helpful and friendly. Would recommend and stay again!

Let me start this review out by saying we arrived back in Orlando after a 3 day cruise on RCCL's Enchantment of The Seas. We were picked up by our pre-arranged Cocoa Beach Shuttle and arrived around 11:00 am. The front desk staff (I think his name was Derek) was absolutely wonderful. We'd reserved 2 king suites for the 6 of us (at the time of reservation nothing bigger was available), not only did he find us a 2 bedroom suite we were able to check in right away. The suite was wonderful, everything was spotless. The living room & kitchen separated the smaller suite from the larger one. Living room has sleeper sofa & dining table. There are flat screen TV's in all three rooms. The master bath had a jacuzzi tub, huge oversized shower and a full shelved linen closet for storage (I love the baskets made from the towels that held the amenties). There are safe's in both closets, fully stocked kitchen with stacked washer/dryer, the smaller suite had king size bed, sleeper sofa and its own small fridge, sink and microwave oven. The beds were very comfortable, but my daughter who slept on the sofabed complained that the mattress was thin and uncomfortable. We had a nice balcony overlooking the heated pool, jacuzzi and Cabana Bar that served food as well as drinks. The daughter's had quite a few in celebration of a birthday! The front desk staff was very helpful in mapping out the area and calling taxi's when needed. Josh was at our beck and call when we needed his assistance in opening the umbrella at our poolside table and storing our luggage for us prior to us leaving. If you get a chance to meet him, ask him to sing something for you. He's a little shy, but has a beautiful voice!!! Overall this was the perfect ending to our quickie vacation. I'll be sure to return when visiting Orlando and will reccommend to all of my friends.

Room Tip: We were in room 701 which overlooked the pool. You can also see fireworks at night.

We stayed 2 nights at The Point resort, Orlando. The hotel looks good, modern, spacious. There was only one elevator available, our room was on the first floor so we took the stairs. The room was spacious and clean, with a kitchenette and a huge king size bed. Bathroom was clean and spotless. The breakfast area is rather small, but there is a good choice with toasts, eggs, cereals and fresh fruit.

We had a one bedroom suite on the 6th floor, the bed was enormous and very comfortable The kitchen was nicely fitted and had the bonus of a washer drier and a dishwasher,the sitting area had another flatscreen TV and was spacious and opened out to a balcony. The pool area was very good but needed a few more parasols. The pool bar was good and served nice bar food. The staff were very good and attentive. We had breakfast in the hotel buffet style and it had eggs cereal, bacon,pancakes, toast, fresh fruit and bagels etc.In all a very pleasant experience.
