“Great fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013 via mobile

This is what a blue green ownership should be! We bought here in the spring of 2011 and our only complaint was the rude employees, well I think the management really heard the people. This trip was great, the pool is spectacular with tons of things for kids and adults! The rooms feel modern and clean.... Two really important things to a family. The resort is also very close to Walt Disney world which was very convenient as our oldest child ran the Disney half marathon.

My family and I just returned from a week at the Fountains resort. We are current Wyndham owners and we did attend the Blugreen timeshare presentation to get $100 off Universal Orlando tickets, but I have to admit that Wyndham is a better timeshare. They both have the points system but we receive better service with Wyndham. We stayed in a 2 bedroom condo in building 5, which they said was newly renovated. It was decent, but we weren't overly impressed. The resort pool is nice and we really enjoyed our view of Lake Eve from our balcony.
The only real Cons were that we called houskeeping 2 days in a row asking for new trash can liners and toilet paper, which they never delivered. I wasn't impressed with this since timeshares don't clean your rooms while you're staying in them and their only "service" responsibility is to provide new trash liners, toilet paper, etc. Also, the kitchen chairs are very noisy when people move them around so I would try getting a top floor room if possible.

Overall, this was a decent hotel and we would stay her again if we visit Orlando in the future.

Room Tip: If you want some quiet, ask for a room near the lake and not the pool. Also, ask for a top floor an...

We stayed at the Fountains from March 22 to March 29th. It is a "GREAT" family resort. Daily activites for family and evening entertainment - dueling pianos (awesome). The pool area is open with lots of space. Rooms were CLEAN, kitchen had essentials (enough to get by), the grills were cleaned EVERY morning. We have stayed at several high end resorts, the FOUNTAINS is a redo....

Just returned from a week at Blue Green the Fountains, The checking went smoothly although I requested building 10 at 10AM . When I retuned at 4pm to get my keys I was given building 5. It was clean but stark as in modern. It did not have a family feeling at all.
The tour takes you to building 10 with a wonderful floor plan. I felt that they were selling smoke & mirrors. Look what you can buy but we cant promise you can get it even if you paid for it. That's the BAD.
The kitchen, was very nice. The beds were fantastic. The bath rooms were also nice.
All in all, we had a great week. We did the sales presentation, impressive but it was not the advertised 90 minutes plan on at least 3 hours.

Room Tip: Get building 10

The property is perfect for families who are going to Disney and the kids don't notice the faults. The pool area is wonderful and has water slides that will keep children occupied for as long as you want. The bar staff at the pool is wonderful and fast with service. Check-in was a breeze. If you're looking for a family oriented place that the kids will love and the parents can have a drink or six while watching them at the pool, this is the spot. The people REALLY make the experience outstanding. That being said, not all of the buildings have been renovated and those that have not are in need of some work. We stayed in building 7 that has not been renovated. There was a broken light fixture above the dining room table, the hot water was not working in the master suite hot tub, and the TVs throughout the suite are from 1995 and have multiple lines running across the top of the picture. Let's be honest though, you're not there to watch TV and when we called maintenance they were there quickly to fix the problem. Obviously if you want the best places, you need to be a member of Bluegreen. That only makes sense. Take the opportunity to hear the sales program if you have the chance but be prepared to make a down-payment if you're serious about buying.

Room Tip: Buildings that are painted light blue have been renovated. Those that aren't, have not. Buildi...

Good family resort had lots of activities for the family, but hotel room was a little out dated. Huge crack in the ceiling, old box televisions with bad color, door handle on the fridge was on the wrong side not easily accessible to open (personal opinion) shower water smelled like lake water. Seemed to be a older unit and not updated yet?? All in all everyone was nice and polite.

Room Tip: Just make sure you ask if the room has been updated recently.

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!
