This is a gem of a hotel ..... My husband and I with our 3 young children have just returned this morning from a 5 day break at this hotel. I had requested a 1st floor room close to the pool and was happy to find on checking in this is what we had been allocated.
Our children, 7yrs, 5yrs and 2.5yrs, loved the pools with hot spa. The fact that the pools are open 24hrs meant that hubby & I could relax late at night in the spa after a long day walking around Disney. I guess noise could be a problem late at night around the pool because of this, but we experienced no problems.
The location makes it an easy 10minute stroll to Disneyland without the wait/cost for a shuttle. It's also a 5 min stroll from the 'Garden Walk' shops & restaurants.
We stayed in a one bedroom queen room which was perfectly adequate in terms of space for the 5 of us. A cot had been made up upon arrival for our 2 year old. Everyday the room was cleaned to a very high standard. The fact that the rooms contain a kitchenette is a real bonus.
Staff were friendly, polite, and willing to help.
I believe that not many hotels in the area provide breakfast or at least not much of a variety. We found the breakfasts set us up for the day - there was a rotation of hot breakfasts including scrambled eggs, bacon, french bread, sausage, tomato etc.... Fruit, waffles, yoghurt, cereals and a wide range of drinks featured daily. My only complaint would be that the dining area was simply not big enough to cater for it's guests - even with people spilling out to pool and out-side areas to sit.
During our stay we were happy to experience complimentary 'snack' evenings where the hotel provides food (barb-b-q / nacho's with chili) for it's guests. This for us made our evening meal!
In sum, we would definitely stay here again having experienced a couple of other local hotels. Great value for money with service and quality to match.
