Summer Bay Orlando By Exploria Resorts

Reviewed October 19, 2011

Summer Bay resort was the perfect place for rest and relaxation. They have friendly security to keep guests safe. Wonderful pools, Great pool drinks! and a nice beach. The unit itself was clean and well equiped. Full kitchen (although had a small stove/oven) washer dryer, lots of parking a mini golf course, grocery store, Liquor store and Papa Johns Pizza all on site. It's a quick drive to tons of restaurants, Super Walmart, Super Target, and all the theme parks. Check in took about 10 minutes. We got one phone call about timeshares, I let the man know nicely that we were on vacation and our time was worth more than the $100 they would pay us to sit through the presentation. He did not call again for the whole week.
The only downside to this unit over other units we have stayed in in the same area was the lack of screened in decks. We had a great deck but did not use it as it was not screened in, bugs freak me out.
Al in all it was a Great place I would recomend Summer bay to everyone:)

Room Tip: Ask for a room near the pool/beach.

Summer Bay Resort was the perfect vacation spot if you wanted to renew, recharge and just relax! We have travelled to Orlando probably a dozen times over the years (our honeymoon was spent there in fact) but this was the best venue yet! The staff cleaned constantly and were very helpful. They had full time recreation people around the poolside, cabana bars and activities for all ages/ all the time. The fitness area is small but we packed in and did our thing anyway! Everyone was friendly and yes, there was timeshare presentations trying to engage you but hey, that's Orlando. No pressure was felt on our part to go and the free family portrait was a wonderful perk. We ended up buying some extra copies but it was worth it. As far as internet access, I am on vacation...buy a cheap phone card and CALL home! That is probably why we had such a relaxing time, sitting in front of a computer was out of the equation. It was all about fun and relaxation. I give this facility two thumbs up!!!

Room Tip: If you can, go to the second floor as the view is worth it and you can sit on your balcony and have...

We stayed a week with our family and loved the facility. The pools, yes pools, there are many, and they are divine. Enjoyed the tennis courts and employees were very nice. The only real complaint we had was no wi-fi in the rooms and when we went to use the computer in the lobby they charged 20 cents a minute and 75 cents to print a page. Which for such a nice facility it ridiculous. But for a family with small children it would be awesome because the pools and splash park are awesome.

Stayed here in september for one week at beginning, and last week of our 3 week stay in Orlando.First week was in two bed unit booked throug rci, second time was in 1 bed unit booked through summer bay.
Afetr check in be prepared to be approached to make a time share appointment during your stay.Be firm if you dont want this, its not compulsory.They offer money or tickets to attractions for your attendance ,so its your decision.They say a 1-2 hour presentation but it will last the best part of half a day
The units were cean and had all you would need for self catering, with stove,microwave etc.Also had a washer /dryer which is very handy.The 1 bed unit was a bit small but we managed with 3 of us for a week.
Generally the whole complex is well maintained, clean ,and has crazy golf, a clubhouse/pool ,where they hold nightly entertainment such as bingo , quizzes etc.There are also several pools dotted around, and a pool bar at the top end of the site, where you can also get something to eat.
There is a Publix supermarket down the road,also chinese and pizza takeouts.Walmart is a few miles up the US27 from the resort with Chillis restuarant.Going down towards the I4 there are numerous places to eat and shop along the strip.
Saying this you will need a car to get around if you intend leaving the resort, as its at the far end of the Irlo Bronson highway.There are shuttles from summer bay to the parks , its first come first served for seats, but we did not use them.

Room Tip: When making your reservation ask to be in the 500 series units.They are the latest and more up to da...

We were there on sept. 30th until october 5, 2011and we had a great time. The condo 501-309 was near the pool (open 24 hrs) and from the balcony, we could see the pound in the back yard. Employes very kind, food at the cabana (pool) was good. A quiet place, around 5 miles from Disney, easy to go (no highway with payment). Publix on the site for the grocery. Very beautiful appartement, clean with a good king bed, leather sofa in the leaving room, A/C that you can controle by yourself and a real kitchen (fridge, oven, dishwasher, micowave etc...). A great place for vacations. We had a really good time there.

I'd like to make a complain.
I'm used to travel to Florida-USA every year, by the way, my last trip was not so good. Why?
Because after one year, of planning and seeking... we found a good price in Decolar.com.br (despegar.com), however when we arrived at the hotel, there wasn't reservation in our name.
In other words, we had to pay again. Believe it or not.
I'm waiting for clarification from the Decolar and anyone answers me, I have already called more than five times.
So I'm writing here, be careful to buy with Decolar, be careful.

We stayed at this resort through an exchange through RCI for two weeks. The unit was a 2 bedroom, spacious, adequately stocked with dishes, glasses, linens, etc. The furnishings could use some updating but overalll the unit was clean. We did have a problem 1 day with cockroaches in the kitchen area but maintenance came out right away and sprayed and we did not have any more problems. There are a lot of families with children so it can get a bit noisey and at night some of the guests were very noisy after midnight but we did call security and they came right out and dealt with them. The staff is very responsive and try very hard to accommodate all your requests. It is very convenient to Publix and Walmart for groceries. There are a lot of very good golf courses in the area as well. The resort has a free shuttle that runs 3 times a day to and from Disney World. They should segregate areas for families and adults so that you can decide if you want to relax in a quiet atmosphere and not have screaming children around. Restaurants are about 3 miles or more away. We did find a very good Asian restaurant, Sakura. There are really no activities for adults at this resort, it is primarily geared towards children. The unit we stayed in was not close to any of the clubhouse facilities, it was about a 10 minute walk.
