We had a great time at the Devil's Thumb Spa and skiing at Winter Park, so all in all the activities around Winter Park are very nice. I will definitely come back to Winter Park, but will make a point to stay elsewhere.
The condo we were in was very outdated (marigold bathrooms, a VCR only attached to the pint sized TV). The bed was uncomfortable and the sofa sleeper mattress was quite stained. The sliding glass doors were covered in fingerprints and the carpet, cream colored sofa and padded dining room chairs were filthy...vacuumed sure, but sometimes that is simply not enough. There was a constant whining noise (it really sounded like a distressed dog) that was coming from the utility fixture (for water?) outside in front of the condo. It became white noise after 3 nights, but I was convinced the neighbors had left there dog too long when we first arrived.
The recreation center opened 20 minutes late and we were not told about the towel charge before hand and the late check in procedures were not clear. The only internet access available is at the recreation center.
On a positive note, the view from the back of the condo was very nice and there was a working fireplace.
