“Loved It!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2014

Stayed here for 6 days in early April while on Spring Break with my two college age daughters. After a long cold winter we just wanted a place to relax, get some sun, and stay away from the Spring Break typical crowd. We loved it!. The grounds are beautiful, the restaurant food and service was excellent. We did not rent a car and did not feel we needed it. There are a few restaurants and small groceries within walking distance. We would take the hotel shuttle to the gate and walk from there. When you return to the gate, the shuttle takes you back. We did one day at Epcot and choose to take a cab vs the hotel offered shuttle. That way we were on our own time. Cab fares to the parks are reasonable. Disney/Epcot $20 one way. Downtown Disney $9. There have been some complaints about one of the pools not being heated. We actually liked this. It kept a separation from the children and families vs the adults only. It was very quiet, relaxing and beautiful by the adult pool. This ended up being my favorite feature of the hotel. Only giving 4 stars vs 5 due to the automatic 18% service charge for all food and drinks by the pool. This is what they do on a cruise ship otherwise people won't tip. This is an upscale hotel and I found it somewhat offensive to automatically add a tip because they assumed I wouldn't. I travel to different cities in FL every year for Spring Break and found not a lot of drinking going on probably because of the automatic 18%. Take that off and people will spend more money on drinks. If you're looking for a relaxing/quiet and maybe just a little bit of "Disney", this hotel is perfect.

We stayed at the Hyatt Grand Cypress as we have stayed in the past and liked the pool. They have renovated since our last trip and the pool was fine, but the big pool was not heated so the water was cold in April. Most people were in the smaller heated pool with the slide. The slide was fun. We went to the Marriott World Center as we heard it had been renovated since we stayed there 2 years ago. The pool has been updated and they put in new water slides. The environment was very family friendly and they had games and activities for the kids.

In my last review of these two hotels I recommended the Hyatt due to the pool. Since the renovations I would recommend the Marriott as they have 3 slides and lots of family activities.
The hyatt housekeeping also did not clean our room one day when we left at 5am and returned at 4 in the afternoon.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that you can see the disney fireworks from

I'm generally not a big fan of the hotels I stay in when traveling to Florida. However, this one was better than most.

Check in was quite simple.

While the outside of the hotel looks a little old, the rooms appear to have been recently redecorated. They modern and clean. They were also pretty quiet and dark at night. Sleep quality was good if you covered up the clock that had an excessively bright blue light. The air conditioning seemed dated. It would blast on and the room would be freezing cold. Then it would shut off and the room would get quite warm. This was pretty annoying but it was the only flaw in the room for me. I also like the lounger in the room for a comfortable reading spot.

The breakfast buffet was quite good with lots of options. However, the huge waterfall in the restaurant was quite loud.

This hotel is set up in such a way that there are no rooms next to the elevators. The only rooms that look like they might be "bad" (as far as noise) are the ones next to the ice machine.

Everyone is very helpful and no one was ever rude or snarky. The parrot in the lobby (Merlot) is great. They had to retire the other parrot as it did not enjoy the guest interactions, but they still have him (or her!) as a companion to Merlot when Merlot is not doing hotel publicity. :)

The bathroom door is also the closet door, so that is odd. (it seems a strange way to save money, but...) Also, if you have medications or milk that you need to keep at a consistent cold temperature, be sure to request a regular fridge, as the cold boxes apparently take a while to get items to the proper temperature.

Great place to stay. Very clean, comfortable and fantastic grounds (swimming, biking, golf, tennis, basketball, etc.). Top notch staff - very helpful and courteous. Also, just a quick 5 min. stroll to off ground eateries (Dunkin Donuts, IHOP, Olive Garden, Pizza Uno), groceries and t-shirt shop. Walking through the western village to the sidewalk seemed to make the walk feel ever shorter. Loved the fast checkout via email (no need to wait in line).

Stayed here in April 14 and found it pretty decent, but not as spectacular as had hoped.

Pros: Nice location easy to find, good water sports on site, nice well signed running route(4.5miles), very clean, good gym, nice pool area, man made beach by the lake, good on-site activities, nice booking in experience, friendly staff.
Cons: pool too cold to enter, although a very spacious resort complex it somehow felt a bit claustrophobic!?, as vegetarians we struggled to eat anywhere on site, balcony tiny.

Enjoyed the stay but preferred the more spacious Grande Lakes and Bonnet Creek complex's where we have stayed before.

Nice clean hotel with good activities in good location.

Room Tip: High room offered nice views of the Disney fireworks

If you have to go to Orlando you will not do better than stay here. It is immaculately kept and the facilities are terrific - cycling (within the grounds so no dangers to children), pitch and putt, boating etc. Hemmingways Restaurant is superb. All the staff were happy and helpful. The only niggle was that the concierge desk was swamped so it was difficult to speak to them.(Why do people think the Concierge is there to listen to their life stories - ask your question and move on!!) You will not be disappointed with this Hotel.

Room Tip: The lift (elevator ) does not like to stop on Level 3!
