Check in was smooth. We had to wait in a small line but it moved along. We did have to wait about 15 minutes until the room was inspected before it was assigned. No problem though - we were just beginning our vacation so we didn't mind. Our room was in building 5317, 1st floor. When we walked in, I was pleasantly surprised and happy to see a clean and well equiped room! We had a 1 bedroom suite that had a smaller kitchen when compared to the deluxe 1 bedroom suite. It was perfect for the 2 of us - my boyfriend and I. The kitchen and the living room was together. The separate bedroom was extremely spacious with a closet, 2 night stands and dresser with a tv on top. The bed was extremely comfortable and the pillows were nice and plump and fresh. The decor in the room had palm trees. There were ceiling fans in the bedroom and living room. The bathroom consisted of the toilet and bathtub/shower. A large vanity was outside of the bathroom. In a closet beside the vanity was a small stackable washer and dryer which was perfect! They gave 3 packets of laundry detergent to start you off. We kept our clothes washed so we didn't have to take any laundry home. The living room had a bigger tv. Dining Table and 4 chairs were also in the living room/kitchen. The kitchen was adequately equiped with all of the pots and pans and baking dishes you need, typical silverware in addition to a complete knife set, and large utensels. They had heavyweight dishes and glass drinking cups and mugs. You don't need to bring any of these things with you, it is all here. They provide the kitchen dish rags and towels, dish soap, dishwasher soap (I needed more and they freely gave me more). Since this was a mini kitchen, all of the appliances (refrig, stove & dishwasher) were sized smaller.
The 2 pools are very nice and clean with plenty of chairs and tables w/umbrellas. Plenty of pool towels are available.
Kid and Adult Activities were provided but we didn't participate in them since we had been busy with Disney parks.
Never had a problem finding a parking space right outside our room.
The one thing negative was the shower pressure was weak.
Must alert you if you take the timeshare meeting. They say 45 minutes... No way, it is 2 hours. They take you off site (how clever) to show you the new timeshre rooms and then keep you there to talk and push you to buy. So you can't walk out because you are no way near your resort. They then bring you back to your resort after you say "NO" thousands of times. They are not happy when you return if you say "no". They gave us a $75 American Express Gift Card for our time. In my opinion, If you are strong in saying no and can take their heat, go to the meeting and get a "free gift for your time" but if you aren't just tell them you aren't interested in looking at the new timeshares.
Resort is located perfectly among shops and restaurants. Unos, Chilis, Cracker Barrel are very close within safe walking distance. Plus my favorite, Krispy Creme. Walk right to it and bring back donuts to your room! They were always busy!!
Great Place to Stay! Would love to return here and vacation! Definitely would recommend!
