Have been meaning to get round to writing this review since our return, We found our room to be clean, beds comfy, and staff really friendly and helpful throughout the hotel. The maids i have to admit didn't clean the balcony floor in the 2 weeks we stayed there and that is an issue we did raise! I dealt with Felize prior to our stay via email and I have to say she was extremely helpful.
The mini market was a good place to get a coffee and pastry if you want a grab and go breakfast and something quick if you get in late from the parks.e, not the cheapest but what do you expect in a hotel. The Watercress cafe did full breakfast there was a lot of choice but the food was only tepid on the couple of times we did visit it, once being for the character breakfast.
The hotel is literally a 10 min pleasant walk from downtown disney, and the disney buses we found to be very good and reliable.
I have noticed some people are complaining about the self parking being far away!! Please note it is a 5 to 10 min walk from the main building and to be honest if you are walking several miles round the parks a day then i really dont understand how anyone can class this as so far away from the hotel!!!!
The only trouble we did have that was highly annoying was the damn room cards stopped working continually and to keep going back to reception was so frustrating. In the end we had a selection of 4 cards so generally one of the worked!!
All in all if it was still reasonable and we were returning to Florida we would defo stay here again especially for location.
