“Marriott Does It Right”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

Cute little Key West property. It does need some TLC for the beach area. I also missed that there is no adult lap pool this property is designed more for families with children. Love the wine tasting with Dave it was so much fun! I do think it is located too close to the highway. We had a family reunion at Disney and I really wish we had done it at this property that would have been perfect. I love that they keep the pools at 84 degrees perfect for the cooler days. Enjoyed the entertainment and activities. Again, all I can say is Marriott Does It Right. Beer tasting was done first class too...very knowledgeable and fun staff. I was a little concerned when they were spraying bug spray on the tiles around the pool with the ship?? I decided not to swim in that pool. The slide is awesome for adults it brings out the kid in you. I love Marriott!

Room Tip: This is the only Marriott property that does not have an adult pool or Lap pool. I think the rooms...

Just returned from a week at Harbour Lake with our grandson aged 8. We couldn't have stayed at a better place for him. The pool was fabulous for the days when we wanted to stay at the resort or came back early from days out. The front desk staff were very efficient, helpful and friendly. Check-in was quick and they printed a voucher off for me from an email! Will definitely recommend this resort and would go back tomorrow!! Added bonus wi-Fi (free) in rooms and round pools.

This is a fantastic family destination resort: the grounds and rooms are very clean and well-maintained, and the staff very friendly and professional.

We stayed in a 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom suite: the location wasn't ideal (overlooking the lake and the freeway), but we barely noticed the sound and didn't spend any time on the screened-in porch.

The unit is well-stocked with glassware and cookware, and the rooms were very roomy. Some very minor upgrading could go a long way, but overall well done and well maintained. Free wireless, free on-site parking.

A highlight for the kids was the waterworks: a heated pool with a large pirate ship and some small slides, good for kids up to age 10 or so. There is a separate water park area too (which would probably be a lot busier in hotter seasons), a mini-golf area (for a fee), an arcade (pay-as-you-go) and a few restaurants with average food.

Located a couple of minutes drive to SeaWorld and close to many attractions, this is a great choice: it's also only a few minutes from a number of grocery stores and big-box stores (Walmart, etc) for groceries, and about 10 minutes from Whole Foods (for a healthier option). I would definitely stay here again.

The premises are immaculate and the security is great. You need a key card to get into the area. When we first arrived check in was easy and we were given some intro things and some little gift pack ..nothing big but it was nice to get a welcome pack. We went into the 2 bedroom condo and it was very clean and nicely set up. They had provided towels, dishe soap and some detergent to start you off. We didn't do a lot of laundry so what they provided was sufficient. We did our shopping for the week and cooked our own food in what felt like home.

The best part of the stay here was the pool area. The children absolutely loved it there..They could have spent 24 hours in that captain ship, sliding down the slides and running through the sprinklers...For the adults the two hot tubs were amazing..and the food was decent enough to enjoy. Nothing fancy. I'd have to say the cocktails were a little watered down, so you might need to ask for an extra shot. I wasn't looking to get drunk but when you spend about $10 on a drink you expect to atlest taste the alcohol. That was the least of my worries though. I really have nothing bad to say about our stay here and I definately would come back. The children absolutely had a ball here. We never did the mini golfing because our kids are too small. We headed over to the bucket once but it was just to powerful for the little ones..the big slide was fun for supervised slides.

Great plus Sea World is literally around the corner from this place. Some great outlets not too far either..and some good restaurants in the area including Benihana's.

Thank you for such a wonderful stay.

Room Tip: There is no room service..you have to throw away your own garbage..and reuse towels if needed. There...

Our group of 4 (DH, DS 5 y.o., MIL and me) just returned from one of the best vacations. We booked a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom suite for a one week stay. Our stay got off to a great start with a warm welcome from very friendly and knowledgeable reception staff. I requested that we are booked to a renovated room on a higher floor; although we could not get a room on a higher floor they gladly accommodated my request for a renovated room. We stayed in building 10 on the first floor. There was a family with young children in the room above ours but we never heard any noise and only realized there were young children staying in the room when we saw them leaving their room one morning. The room was gorgeous, clean and very spacious. The two bedrooms were located at the opposite ends of the suite and each was appointed with a separate bathroom which allowed for privacy for my DH and I, my MIL and our son. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed for our stay even items we did not expect to find (such as a juice maker, a blender, laundry detergent, Tupperware containers). All the hotel facilities are very well maintained, clean and child friendly. Here is the list of facilities we used: Pool with the pirate ship, pool with the water slide, water park, outdoor play area, mini golf course, arts and crafts room, outdoor table games area, arcade, gym, outdoor picnic area with BBQs, the terrace by the lake, fire pit and basketball courts. The equipment in all the areas was modern and in perfect working condition. Best of all though were the staff!! There are planned activities at the resort from 9 AM till 7 PM with a different activity planned for every hour. The staff running the activities seemed to love what they were doing and went all out to make each activity enjoyable and entertaining with great success. Most nights our son was sleeping by 7 p.m. which left my DH and I time to enjoy the adult side on the resort during the evening hours. Our absolute favorite was spending a few hours at the Outpost bar with Christine, the ultimate mojito maker and a wonderful person. We met Christine on the first evening of our stay and enjoyed returning to the Outpost almost every evening for a few mojitos and a great conversation. Our son also loved Christine`s amazing smoothie creations and pizza. Our other favorite was shopping at the two outlet malls located very close to the resort. Overall, this resort gets 5+ stars from us, we can`t wait to return!

While this timeshare is geared for Family and Children, we enjoyed a Splendid Anniversary
week's stay. We enjoyed an beautiful 2-bedroom Lake view Villa, which was appointed nicely
and very well stocked with appliances, china, glassware, silverware and all the the cookware
that one could possibly imagine using. We did not have our young Grandchildren with us, but
enjoyed watching the well-behaved youngsters around the festive Pirate-themed pool decks and and on the playfields with the resort youth counselors. The atmosphere was HAPPY and from
our observation, all members of families were having a GOOD time. We certainly DID and as
Seniors...can reccomend Harbour Lakes for All ages!

Our week was leisure BLESSED,...enjoying the large screen TV's and Free Wi-Fi. We did "tour" the other Marriott timeshares nearbye and found them too to be "Welcoming". We had lunch at the clubhouse of the Marriott Faldo Golf timeshare resort and spent a fun-filled afternoon playing golf. The Exercise Room certainly met our weekly excercising needs. Shopping is an easy short drive...whether groceries or Mall/Outlets. And of course, the many Theme Parks that Orlando is known for are "right" there for one's enjoyment! GO...you'll be pleased you did! :)

We certainly DID and as Seniors,....can highly recommend Marriott Harbour Lakes for ALL ages!

Room Tip: If a SPECIAL occasion, let the Reservation desk know....they don't disappoint! :) Our 6th floo...

I met my college room-mate at this resort when her mom had a free timeshare week. We enjoyed our stay. The two-bedroom condo was spacious and clean, and we had a screened-in deck overlooking the lake in the back. Although we didn't have families with us, we noticed that the resort had large pools, plenty of activities for kids, and a miniature golf course. The fitness room was spotless and had plenty of nice, new equipment. We didn't eat at the restaurant by the pool because the menu and drinks were pricey, as per resorts, but it looked like it would be a nice place to hang out. The resort is very close to SeaWorld and only a short drive from the other theme parks. It's located on a tree-lined lane with a number of other similar condo-style resorts. I wouldn't all it super special in any way, but it was very nice and we enjoyed it.

A couple of setbacks: I asked for a top-level room and they did their best, which was very nice, but we ended up on the 5th floor instead of the 6th, and for the first night I did hear people walking around above us. Thankfully it was just the first night. Also, in building 15 it was nice being away from the center of the resort and looking back onto the lake, but I could hear the traffic from the highway pretty much 24 hours a day. It basically got to be like white noise at night, though, and after I got used to it the first day it didn't bother me. Other buildings are further from the highway, but closer in to each other. Also, the Internet access in our condo often didn't work, even after they tried to re-connect our modem. The signal was weak. My guess is that this isn't the case in most of the condos, though, or else they'd have more complaints about it. For us, it just kept us off the Internet, which was a good thing :-)

A very nice resort if you are looking for something near the theme park that has all of the basics you need, is on a lake, and is a nice place for families and kids. There is a convenient CVS and also a supermarket nearby if you have a car, and the kitchens in the condo offer plenty of space for preparing meals.

Room Tip: Choose the highest floor if you can, if Internet access is important to you ask about the Internet a...
