“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2012

Stayed here for my honeymoon, very friendly staff, lovely pool and great rooms, beyond my expectations, good space, lovely Irish pub on site. Shuttle buses provided were easy to use and gave enough time in all parks. Location was really good for Disney and universal.

I stayed at this resort in June/July 2012 for 22 nights in two bedroom apartment. We were 3 adults and two kids. My initial booking was for 11 nights but I extended my stay for another 11 nights as well simply because this place is lovely and fabulous and I did not find other place worth to stay at compred to this resort. The whole family loved the place and the facilities around. I would recommend this place without hesitations to any traveller with children to Orlando.

My hubby, daughter and I stayed here from 11th June - 25th June 2012. Stayed in Buliding 5 and it was fab. Had a lovely pool view and room was so spacious and gorgeous. Check in was super quick too and the staff couldn't do enough for you.

The pool was gorgeous and my little one had loads of fun splashing about. The shuttle drivers were sooo friendly and the Irish Pub did fab meals.

I can't wait to come back here.

We were a family of 4 including 2 adult children and enjoyed our 10 night stay. The apartments were spacious, the staff were friendly, and daily transport to the respective theme parks was ideal. The Outlet Mall was next door so that was easily accessed. The Irish Pub provided good meals at a reasonable price. We never botherered with room service or made use of the spa so not able to comment on those services.

Room Tip: We had a room in building 4 (the main reception area) overlooking the pool so that meant it was easy...

We were a group of three adults and two kids for a three night stay for a wedding in downtown Orlando, though I will certainly keep this resort in mind when we visit Disney World the next time. We stayed in a 3-bedroom unit 2 bath unit, fireworks view (building 5, room 51102).

Cons: The traffic during "rush hour" when everyone was heading to Disney World could get really bad on S. Apopka/Vineland Rd, but I think that was aggravated by the presence of Tropical Storm Debby so it is hard to tell if that is regular traffic or particularly bad with the storm. Parking was limited if we arrived back at the resort late in the evening, but we could always find street parking directly in front of the building. The turn into the resort is a street called "LBV Factory Stores Drive" which doesn't show up on GPS or Google Maps. :) We had family staying at the nearby Hilton Downtown Disney, and because the building access requires a key code for safety, each time they visited us, someone would have to meet them downstairs to let them in.

Pros: The location is two intersection turns to Disney World. It is convenient to I-4, International, World Drive, Publix, and Walmart. The on-site restaurant (the Irish pub) had decent food with large portions at a fair price. Their food delivery was quick. The kids liked going down to the pool and eating at the pool side cafe for their breakfast bagel. The Pizza Hut on site is very quick with delivery.

Even though we encountered a tropical storm, our kids had a wonderful time at the arcade to pass the time since the roads from the storm made traveling treacherous. The arcade is on the small side, and the games quickly eat up $$$, but our kids (under 8) had a great time playing there.

When the rain let up, they enjoyed the hot tubs, the pools, and especially the pirate ship slide. We thought the pirate ship was a climbing water feature, but it turns out just to be a slide. The lifeguards allowed our 4 year old who didn't meet the age or height requirements to slide down because he's a proficient swimmer.

We had two issues that required maintenance which was there very quickly. Once, our 4 year old locked one of the bedroom doors. We figured out later that we could just use a kitchen knife to unlock the door. The second time a toilet was not flushing properly. Maintenance resolved that right away as well. The service was fantastic!

The unit clean, well furnished with a full size refrigerator, dishwasher, coffee maker, stove, microwave. There was also a small washer/dryer unit. I would recommend driving to the Publix or Walmart to pick up necessities and skip the convenience store on site. The Walmart is 3 minutes drive, and it would take us 3 minutes to walk to the convenience store in another building. I can't remember if the stove was an oven unit as well. Since we stayed only three days, we did not need housekeeping during our stay.

Overall - we enjoyed having the space. A 3 bedroom unit can easily accomodate up to 10 people if needed as there were 2 double beds, 1 queen, 1 sofa pull out, and 1 king bed. The jacuzzi tub in the master was very large with a separate shower. My only complaint about the master bath was the lack of towel racks outside of the one in the shower stall. Otherwise, I would recommend this resort to anyone.
