Both pros and cons! (Be sure to read CONS if COVID safety matters to you) This is a lovely resort, with lots of great amenities! While we did not feel comfortable using most of them due to COVID, we would definitely consider bringing our family here post COVID. But, we did enjoy a nice, peaceful week. Other than the rooms rather drab color motif (drab brown), the condo was Very comfortable, was large, had lots of storage, and all new appliances! HOWEVER - and this was a biggie for us -the resort did a poor job of enforcing COVID protections. First, apparently our room was not sanitized, like other rooms. It did not have a sticker (we realized later that other rooms did). Then, the 2nd day of our stay, cleaning staff just walked into our apartment - without masks. They apparently had the date wrong regarding when we would arrive. The room did appear to have been cleaned at an earlier time -but just not "sanitized." Also, we saw about four other staff members near our building not wearing their masks, and they did not raise their masks when we walked by. And finally, we peeked into the recreation center, which had big sign about wearing masks, and saw four teens not wearing masks while playing pool. Apparently, this sort of behavior was tolerated by the resort. So, do not go during COVID if this sort of thing will bother you, as it did us. That said, the resort had much to offer during normal times, and I would definitely recommend it post-COVID.

The cleaning lady did not wear a mask at all. When I went to complain the supervisor came up to me indoors and pulled her mask down to talk. The people preparing food were not wearing masks. The resort wasn't full so it wasn't very difficult to stay six feet away from people at the pool but if it was at full capacity it would be.

Summer Bay was extremely well kept and had great service. Pool towels were available in the units due to Covid which was nice to already have before heading out to the pool with the kids. They had a very nice cafeteria serving some hot and cold options. The pizza was delicious. Can’t wait to come back in December!

Hands down one of the best resorts I've stayed at in almost 30 years of timeshare exchanging. I have stayed at many resorts over the years that turned out to be disappointingly outdated and rundown, but not this one. Summer Bay was a welcoming return to what resorts should be. The buildings, grounds and the room were all extremely clean, up to date, and very well maintained. The 2BR was very spacious with plenty of room. My one complaint was the couch was a bit uncomfortable, but that can probably be written off to it being a pull-out couch. Check in was quick and efficient. It was nice that they had daily activities for the guests (trivia, bingo, craft activities), which in my experience has become a thing of the past at other resorts. Mini golf, 4 pools that never seemed crowded. Did not try the workout room or arcade. The landscaping is very "natural" and nicely done. Lots of birds hanging out in the ponds. Proximity to restaurants and shopping was excellent. Location was great as it was about an hour or so to either coast and located in a part of Orlando area where the traffic didn't seem to be as dense as other areas. They had a shuttle that would bring you to several of the theme parks, though we are not into the parks so can't rate that, but the fact it was available was very nice. All of the employees were very nice and were strictly following Covid guideline recommendations during our stay. I would say my one big "constructive criticism" was the recreational layout. They had a lot of things from horseshoes, to basketball, to tennis, to mini golf, etc. But the activity center where you got the equipment seemed to be at the far end of the property and not centrally located with all the activities then spread around the property. It would have been much nicer to have the activity center in the middle of all the activities, courts, etc so you didn't have to walk from one end of the property to the other all the time. Though, they do have a shuttle that runs around the property as well, but it just seems the layout for the activity areas could have been better planned.

The staff and the resort lived up to our highest expectations! We had a problem when we first checked in with the unit assigned us but the management was able to solve the problem with the second unit they assigned us which was excellent!
