I am glad I decided to ignore the bad reviews and went on to stay at Westgate Lakes Resort. Clean and spacious 3 bedroom villa in the third floor with a spectacular pool view. Good value for the money. Literally a home away from home.
Here are a few tips:
As you check in, request a room in the remodeled buildings, if possible in the top floors. Furniture was adequate, and we saw no bugs.
After check in, when they offer free breakfast and the timeshare orientation, politely but firmly decline. We did, and that was the end of the subject.
I recommend renting a car, as there are several restaurants nearby but nothing is walking distance.
I did not use the pool, so I cannot comment on that.
I decided to write this review to try to balance a little all the bad reviews I had read, which made me a bit apprehensive. In fairness, this place met our expectations. This is not a five star hotel, and you should not expect five star amenities here. Simply put, this is clean, safe and adequate place to stay while doing the theme parks in Orlando.
I would definitely return to this place; I recommend it too.
