“Nothing to brag about!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

I was expecting a 5 star resort by looking at the pics but I was let down. The grounds r beautiful, I will give them that, but the rooms r ordinary. I've been to the BlueGreen resort in Missouri and I had high hopes for this one, but its not nearly as nice or as big. And everything closes early so after u get back from the parks, the pools and all the amenities r closed. So we didn't even get to swim in that huge pool or use the slides. Overall, I'm disappointed with what I paid for, cuz it wasn't cheap!

We were very skeptical after reading some very negative reviews about BlueGreen and The Fountains Resort. Saying we were pleasantly surprised is an understatement; our accomodations were spacious and immaculate, the resort was spotless, staff was courteous and helpful and the activities for the kids were spot on! I distrust official photos as they are often CSG - the pool here is just as it is depicted. We travelled from Canada for some March Break fun in the sun and found it at The Fountains. We would definitely consider another trip to this resort.

Room Tip: Can't speak for the other buildings on site, but the two bedroom villas in building 10 were amaz...

Great Hotel with all the accomadations for a family. Rooms were spacious and nearby all attractions for Orlando. The heated pool was great. Fun for the whole family. The hotel sits on a lake and there is rental center for paddle boats, fishing poles.

I rely heavily on reviews, so I thought it only fair to write my own. I recently (March 8-March 14, 2013) stayed at the Fountains resort. It was close to Seaworld, close to Disney, and was a wonderful stay. The staff were super friendly, the grounds were immaculate - no trash laying around, landscaping was gorgeous, etc, the room was clean and very spacious, and the pools are amazing! I loved this resort and would definitely go back again. We wouldn't have needed to leave the resort for anything except groceries. Love having the washer and dryer in the room, full kitchen, the beds were nice and soft - with lots of nice pillows! - and the screened in balcony was a major bonus. It was quiet and loved having the Starbucks on property too. If I had to give any negatives, it would be that there weren't any pads on the bottoms of the chairs and when you moved a chair (if you didn't lift it) it would make a loud screeching sound and lastly the water was very hard. My toothpaste barely sudsed up and forget about any soaps actually suddsing. Those two negatives really weren't all that negative :) I had a one year old with me and she loved the pools and feeding the fish, birds, and turtles on the bridge also. Loved it!!

We had very nice accommodations. We had a two bedroom, two bathroom condo. The pools were great, my son especially enjoyed the slides. My friend and I played in their poker tournament and really enjoyed ourselves. There were lots of activities for the families, young and old. The location is perfect because the resort is very close to all of the major attractions. We would definitely go back to the Bluegreen Fountains Resort.

Room Tip: Some of the condos are newly renovated. We stayed in a slightly older building (#5) but still had a...

We had tickets to Universal Studios and so this resort suited us as it was about a 15 minute drive away. Accommodation-wise, it was a typical Orlando resort, offering a spacious, clean condo, decently decorated with all the amenities. Surroundings were pleasant and included nice landscaping, two big pools and lots to keep children occupied, as a well as a pond for fishing and paddling. The only problem was the inescapable music that continued loudly and nonstop. Perhaps it appeals to some people, not us. This type of resort is not a cozy little vacation place. It's where you stay when you want to be somewhere else during the day. For that, it is just fine.

Room Tip: Ask where you will be located and know what you want, for example, proximity to the pool, privacy, m...

My parents are owners so we stayed with them in a newly remodeled suite. It was beautifully decorated and well appointed. The master bedroom was very large with both a spa tub room and separate shower and dressing area. There was a second bedroom with (2) double beds and a living room with a pull out couch, kitchen, dining area and large entry and 2nd bathroom and a screened balcony. Remember to ask for a pool view in advance. A higher room gives a better view. We were on the 5th floor of building 10.The main pool was ultra large. It was a little cool out so, we swam in the indoor/outdoor heated pool in the club house. All of the staff were friendly and greeted you. It was well maintained and there were activities available at an extra cost. I would say it was one of the nicest places I have ever stayed. It was quite near Sea World and a 15 min drive to the parks. Shopping and eating were plentiful. The only complaints were the very thin blankets on the beds, more of a sheet than a blanket. Also, the security card system to get into the building and into the room just didn't work well at all. It took several attempts to gain access. Even after reprogramming the cards. Every door on our floor had pry marks near the locks so, I think it is an ongoing problem. Other than that it was a great place that I would love to return to.

Room Tip: Ask for a pool view on an upper floor. Ask for building # 10 or # 2 which were recently redone.

Set within 54 acres surrounding the serene natural setting of Lake Eve, and located along popular International Drive, The Fountains offers everything you would expect from a world-class resort as well as the convenience of a central location. The Fountains has its own claim to fame- Bluegreen's Wakoola Springs. This 75,000-square-foot tropical oasis sets itself apart from an everyday pool with two water slides*, a zero-entry pool, interactive water fountains, two hot tubs. Cross over the two bridges on the campus and head over to one of two fire circles for evening stargazing and relaxation.
