“Love Love Love this Resort!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014

We've stayed here twice in a 2 bedroom and 3 bedroom villa both were clean and perfect for extended family vacations. So much to do for kids and adults, great place to relax but still close to all of Orlando's parks! Staff is awesome and very friendly and the kids love the Maze area.

Stayed with my family the week of July 4. This is a nice gull service resort. I have visited the Spa a few years ago while staying at the Marriott Cypress Harbor and was really looking forward to staying at this resort because of the amenities. Really beautiful main pool area and nice pool close to our room as well. Our children went to the teen party, which was a lot of fun.
We had three bedrooms which was plenty of space for a family of 6. The main living/dinning area was spacious for all go hang out, and the furniture was nice. We had a great view of the fireworks from our Villa's screened porch.
But, out villas seemed dirty. The bathroom tile grout was an odd color, looked dirty. My toes curled every time I took a shower. The tub in our room looked really old and nasty - my son asked if he could take a bath in there yo which I said absolutely not.

Both the kitchen and bathroom just looked tired and dated. Check out is at 10am. I called the night before check out yo request a later check out and was told they typically don't grant later check out. When I asked about being a rewards member they said those benefits don't apply at this property.

I've only stayed in two Marriotts that I felt a level of disappointment, and this was one of them.

Great Place! I had stayed here before many years ago.. Check in was great. I have to say that Tia was exceptional and did a great job! We had a room on the 6th floor facing the pool. The room was a bit noisy because the sling doors were not soundproof so you can hear the kids playing at the pool.
Beds and pillows were pretty good... Plenty of space throughout the villa and I wish we could have stayed longer.
Very happy with housekeeping staff that found a missing item I had left in the room. The only thing I was a little annoyed about was check out time. I understand they have villas and it takes them a little longer but 30 minutes to an hour would really be helpful!

Overall, it was a great place and I would gladly stay again.

Stayed here with the fam for a week. Establishment is very solid and new. Great insulation between rooms, super comfy beds, modern, spacious, balconies with cool views of lakes and golf course, huge sparkling pools, music, bar/concession stand, activities, play places, lots to entertain adults and kids right there on the spot (free & not free).

Stayed for 1 week in a 3 bedroom Villa for Volleyball Nationals & our stay was perfect! Checked in around 9pm & at first not sure of our building location being the furthest from the Village Center but this turned out to be just right as we could walk to pool on "our side" of the lake and enjoy the golf course view which was very quiet. The Villa became our home away from home & had everthing we needed. After long days at Convention Center (just a few minutes away) we enjoyed coming "home" to our clean, comfy & quiet villa & it's luxurious beds. We ate poolside & the food is good. There are great more upscale options close by & it's proximity to Pointe Orlando Shopping & Dining is great as well as the Disney Parks & Discovery Cove/Sea World. The local Publix Grocery store is just minutes away. Some highlights include: enjoying both pools and never feeling too crowed, the 3 mile walk around the perimeter of the property, Starbucks Coffee & friendly ladies in the MarketPlace & overall the staff caring about our stay. Really appreciated "Loss Preventions" response to our first night there and our complaint of very loud guests above us. (Gave it plenty of time as of course this is a vacation/fun place but jumping kids moving furniture for over an hour was too much.) They were excellent & noise ceased & staff apologized following up with a phone call the next day.) As our flight home was a evening flight, we were able to extend check-out by 1 hour & enjoy the resort for the day. Rossmore in the Lobby took great care storing our luggage as we enjoyed the pool & were welcomed to use the locker room facilities at the Golf Club before departing. (If you have a bigger party, just be aware for timing purposes that the ladies locker room has just has 1 shower.) Overall our entire stay was excellent and well will be back next year!

Room Tip: We were on the 2nd floor & it was perfect walk from parking level & view was great too.

We enjoyed our week at the Grand Vista. The staff is friendly and accommodating. Our two bedroom was spectacular. Our only regret is that we didn't have more time to enjoy the facilitys because we were going to the park every day. We did come back for an afternoon swim or a late night swim.

Room Tip: Near the pool is has more activity. There are quieter areas but we prefer the activity.

This resort is an excellent place for adults and children. My fiancé and I were alone but enjoyed the pool side activities as much as the children. I won $10 playing BINGO. The Jack Pot was $37. A couple of nights there was all you can eat Smores by the fire pit and a musician. Afterwards there was a movie by the pool. We took one of the lounge boats out and sailed around the lake. There are four or five different pools to swim in as well as a couple hot tubs. Speaking of hot, the water aerobics class was instructed by Martin who made working out a sheer pleasure! Extremely nice in every way. The weather was too hot in June but I had traveled here for a conference the week before and stayed for a weeks vacation afterwards. All of the staff are to be commended for the great job that they do. They are enthusiastic and energetic and encourage the children to participate and make them feel good about themselves when they do.

Room Tip: We had suite 452 in building 100. It was close to the smaller private pool where there are less chil...
