“A review about: location, shuttles, Noise level,”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012 via mobile

About the hotel: every room has a kitchenette, stovetop, microwave, full size fridge, dining table, cooking utensil available in room, dishwasher, washer and dryer. Two flat panels TV, one in living room with couch (pullout bed),one more in the bedroom. This resort is newer than the Sheraton Vistana Resorts, and less expensive. This compound is big enough that you can exercise in the morning. We saw Jagger's around the resort in the morning. I recommend this hotel for the budget minded travelers.

Noise level: if you happen to sleep in the living room on the pullout bed, you will hear your neighbor next door in the morning when they are up having breakfast and getting ready to go to the park. And they don't even have to scream or yell for you to hear them, sleeping from your pull out bed.

Shuttle to park: shuttle is provided to Epcot only every hour until noon daily. If you need to go to Animal Kingdom, you'd have to catch another bus from Epcot. If you wanna get to Magic Kingdom, take the monorail to the transportation center, get off, take the ferry or transfer to another monorail that will take you to Magic Kingdom.

Location: comparatively speaking, this resort is no where near any of the Disney Parks, and I do stress "comparatively speaking." there's a Supermarket nearby called Publix. We purchased food from there, brought snacks to the park, and have dinner that we bought from Publix home way from home. We saved a lot of money for not purchasing food and snacks at the park. A hamburger costs $9.99, root beer cream costs $4.95, and so on, you get the idea.
Supermarket is not walking distant from Sheraton Villages, we rented a car for cheap to take us around when we are not at the parks.

Lovely resort in a great location on international drive. Rooms are very large with everything you would need in them for a stay. Rooms were kept very clean by housekeeping and serviced every day. Everything can be booked via reception from taxi's, Disney tickets to tickets to the local games. The i-ride goes from outside the main gate so you can get to anywhere from here.

My family stayed here for a wonderful week in October/November 2012. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel very welcom, we found the resort, grounds and pool to be in excellent condition and our two bedroom appartments were lovely! The main pool is fabulous for kids and families and we had a great, relaxing week. Strangely our appartments had no oven dishes but this was quickly remedied as soon as we reported it. We also had a few minor maintenance niggles but these too were attended to straight away. Very good service all round! Thank you and well done! We will be back as soon as we can.

Room Tip: Like many big resorts, you may get minor problems during the week. Please do report any problems str...

Visited Orlando for a quick family event and needed a cheap place to stay. We had a one bedroom room that was set up like a condo. Full kitchen, table for four and a master bedroom with a king bed and a huge balcony. The bathroom went into the master and the main room and was a tiny bit small, not a lot of counter space, but that's my only complaint. The room was spotlessly clean. The kitchen looked like it had never been used before. The property was very quiet considering I expected a lot more families running around with Disney next door.

Very clean, nice rooms, great staff, when I asked for things like more towels i got them right away along with a follow up call! This is a great place! My kids enjoyed the activities and the pool is big and gorgeous! They have a small market on premise and the restaurant is great!

We went there for a family wedding and everyone was happy with the villa. We found everything to be clean and felt well taken care of for the week. Very close to all the attractions in Orlando. We actually felt like we were at home with our family.

Room Tip: We stayed at the Cascades, with a pond behind us and a soothing waterfall!!

We stayed here in Oct2012.My husband and I had a one bedroom and my daughter and family had a two bedroom.We stayed in the newer section which was just beautiful! The pool was nice and quiet which was great...if we wanted more excitement it was a short walk to the main pool area.This is the third time we have stayed here and it has always been wonderful! We always have been in the older units which are just fine but have to say,we really enjoyed the peacefulness of the newer units.Staff here is awesome and never intrusive.The property and units are clean and well stocked.Very walker friendly resort.We love it here and will surely go back! :)
