I stayed here with my family - two adults, and 3 kids, ages 7, 9, and 12 - for a trip to Universal. As a lifetime Floridian, I've taken LOTS of Orlando trips over the years, and this had to be the most comfortable I have ever been on a vacation stay.
Check in was a breeze. The staff were courteous and accommodating, taking time to explain the amenities, and go over the property map as well as the pretty full activities calendar (some fun stuff for the kids for "down time.")
The accommodations were great - we were in the Deluxe 2BR; the master BR had a queen sized bed, and a great bathroom with an oversized jetted tub. The 2nd BR had two twin beds, and it's own TV, too (which the little ones LOVED). The 12 year old slept on the sleeper sofa in the living room, and she said it was actually quite comfortable. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed to make basic meals - pots, pans, plates, coffee maker, etc. The unit had a full sized washer and dryer, too. If you think you might do more than one load while you're there, bring your own detergent - there's a little box that will get you through one load.
There are several pools on the property, and they are all well maintained and comfortable. The mini golf was nothing spectacular, but it was a fun way to spend an hour with all of us. (Be sure to bring your ID to the desk when you go to play - they will need to hold your driver's license in exchange for your clubs and balls, as well as if you choose to play pool in the clubhouse).
Overall, this was a great trip. The resort offers shuttle service to the parks, but I cannot speak to how that was, as we opted to drive to have the flexibility to come and go as we pleased. BUT the resort is only about a 10-12 min drive from Universal, so it was VERY convenient. There are tons of stores and restaurants nearby, too. (As an aside, if you want to bring groceries, grab them somewhere OTHER than the grocery up the street - it's VERY expensive).
