“Excellent Florida retreat”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

I stayed at the Bahama Bay in October with my husband and 2 teenage children. We booked the condo through a helpful couple Linda & Bruce through Owners Direct and stayed in Building 12, number 401. We had read on Tripadvisor that the buildings in this resort are paper thin and that if there were people above you it could be very noisy, therefore we chose this unit as there was no one above you and was an end condo.

When we arrived the ladies on reception were very friendly and helpful. The condo was lovely and had everything we needed. It had 2 bedrooms, with our room being extremely large with a huge king size bed (some beds are only queen size and not very big) the bathroom was lovely with a large corner tub and very large shower. There was a his & hers sink and lots of towels. Our kids had the other twin bedroom which also had it's own bathroom connected to it. The condo has everything you need in it. There is a patio area which was good when we came back from a hectic day at the park to sit in and chill out before heading back out. When we read some reviews on tripadvisor we were worried as some people were mentioning dirty carpets etc but the condo we stayed in was extremely clean and had new carpets. I was also worried about bugs as when we've stayed in villas before in Florida you can get cockroaches etc but in the 2 weeks there was not a single bug.

The resort is large with 4 swimming pools. Where the unit is that we stayed in, it's near a pool with a sandy beach with very comfortable spongy loungers. I can recommend the pina colada cocktails at the swimming pools bar! There is a small gym on the site which we used a couple of times.

This resort is about 30-35 min drive to the main area of Florida but as we've been before the drive did not really bother us. There are restaurants on the 192 - I would recommend Bahama Breeze for a meal. There is a Super Target also and Publix on the 192 also.

All in all this was a really great holiday and would recommend Bahama Bay for a relaxing Florida holiday.

Room Tip: End condos do not have anyone above you and are quiet.

Our first stay in a condo...unfortunately it wasn't for us..the condo was ok, a little dark and dull, but clean, although, the bedsheets were not great quality, and ours had a small tear in it. Our first night we used the takeaway service ordered pizza, wings, chips, I'd give 2 out of 10, it cost us $30, the wings were just re -heated with a sauce poured over, and not hot, the chips soggy and cold...pizza ok, we didnt go back.We only used the quiet pool near our condo,no complaints, plenty of beds, umbrellas, chairs, hot tub great..big let down was the noise from the upstairs condo...terrible..if you go here get a top floor!!
Location wise? Not too bad, a twenty minute drive from the parks, if you're shopping at the malls, or outlets a fourty minute drive... Not great..it was cheap, but you pay your money you take your choice...going back? No....

After reading reviews on here was slightly apprehensive about my stay.

Throughly enjoyed my stay here and would definitely visit again.

Only negatives are; ant problem in the dishwasher and 2 cockroaches in room. After calling reception they moved me with no fuss.

Slighty further than anticipated from MCO airport. I took a taxi which cost $80 dollars as there was no buses which went to Davenport. Had I not been meeting my sister at resort and sharing use of her car, then it would have been a disaster. Renting a car is a Must!!

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms you do experience more noise from above. Running of baths, washing. Machine etc.

Stayed for 2 weeks at the end of August 2012, renting a 2 bedroom condo directly from the owners in the UK. The apartment exceeded our (already high) expectations - it was immaculate, incredibly roomy and had everything we needed for a perfect stay. The check in was trouble free and speedy and the staff were welcoming and helpful. Had a few minor things that needed to be sorted but maintenance came as soon as we called and fixed them right away.

We were so busy visiting attractions that we didn't get much chance to explore the resort but did visit the pools and beach a couple of times and found them to be clean and uncrowded. Lots of sunbeds to go round which made a lovely change! Didn't find it too far a drive from the parks - might be an issue for some people but we preferred to be able to come back to a peaceful place and see some wonderful wildlife into the bargain.

Didn't eat at the resort except for having a pizza delivered the evening we arrived (so glad we were able to do that rather than inflicting our tired and grumpy kids on other restaurant guests). The on-site shop is pricey but handy for the essentials until you get to the nearby Walmart.

Some reviews mention noisy neighbours but our condo was ideal as it was on the ground floor but semi-attached to the main building so we had no one above us. As a result, we didn't hear a thing and didn't have to lug suitcases up staircases. It was apartment 401 (think it was on No 12 block) I am happy to send the Owners Direct link to anyone who wants it, especially as the owners were so helpful, answering all our questions in advance - we really benefited from their knowledge of Florida as this was our first time there.

We all had the holiday of a lifetime and would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Book a semi-attached ground floor unit if you are worried about noise.

stayed at bahama bay for 2 weeks with my husband 2 children and other family members. we stayed in 114 watling way. it was a pleasent surprise as it was massive and spotlessly clean, it had everything, cooker, microwave, pots, pans, storage tubs. blender, toaster, hoover, hairdryer, washing machine, dryer, tv, dvd player, stereo and thats just stating a few. it had lots of towels and hand towels too. the resort of bahama bay is in a quiet gorgeous location there are many lakes dotted around which have alligators in, there are a few pools, jacuzzi and play park which are all lovely. there is a shop and a clubhouse and restaurant but cant comment as didnt use these. if i could afford it i would love to come back here and have more of a relaxing holiday as its lovely. we did all the theme parks and they are all in easy reach. would recommend to anyone of any age, absolutley stunning place.

Room Tip: ask for a top floor as alot more quieter and you get better views.

We spend 3 weeks in Bahama Bay with my wife. We rented a Grand Bahama Condo (the largest, we were told-about 1700sq.f.). We rented directly from the owner, who handled the whole process in a very professional way and gave us a very competitive price.
Check-in: Less than 5mins wait, staff were great, taking time to explain everything about the resort and providing us a map as well. Check-out was as swift (there is an option for express check-out as well).
The Unit: 100% as described on the website where we first saw it. 3/ 2 unit- Bedrooms are all spacious-King bed in the Master, Queen in the second and twins in the 3rd bedroom. There was also a sofa that can turn into full-size bed. The furniture is blending nicely with the overall ambiance, but when it comes to comfort, it left some to be desired. Not bad, but not the comfiest beds either. There is plenty of pillows, though if you prefer something special, you may want to pack one with you. Kitchen is fully stock with everything you need. The owner also sent us a key to his closet, which was nice of him. There were flat screen TVs in all bedrooms and in the living room+DVD player, iPod docking station. Wi-Fi was good throughout the condo and by some of the pools.
The Resort: The place is very well maintained (you hardly see a leaf on the walkways and the streets), pools were ALWAYS clean and warm, the beach area was nice, as well as the little pier they have on Lake Davenport. It was nice to sit there and enjoy the serenity of the place. Since we visited a lots of resort-type communities while in Florida, I can say that Bahama Bay is one of the best places in its price range. We only had one challenge, maintenance wise-our garbage disposal stopped working- it was fixed within an hour of reporting and you could not see any trace of the maintenance team being in. The only negative side is that the grounds maintenance team start work very early. It did not bother me, since I am an early bird, but if you want to sleep after 0730am you may want to pop a pair of earplugs:). There was a good size balcony with a table to relax on.
The restaurant and the bar were satisfactory-very friendly and attentive staff-they really made it a pleasure to spend time there. There were nights with life music in the restaurant as well, which we enjoyed.
The best part was that the resort was never full. It had enough people not to feel like a ghost town, but at the same time the pools were never crowded and there were always plenty of sun loungers available.
Location: About 30mins to MCO, 10-15mins to WDW(not in the busiest hours obviously), only 5-7mis to Walmart and 2-3 mins to Publix. Plenty of restaurants within 15mins drive and ample choice of gas stations around as well. Check on Google Maps and you’ll find a lots of shortcuts to and from Bahama Bay..then is up to you which one you are going to take:).
The bitter end: We forgot an iPod in the unit when we left. I called around 2pm (same day) since we were in transit until that time, and was told that this will be checked and they will get back to me. I ended up leaving numerous voicemails with no response. Through the owner I eventually got an email address for lost and found, but after few emails back and forth I was advised that the iPod was not located. I know that it is our fault for not checking on our items and we learned a lesson out of it, but it’s still sad since this was engagement gift for my wife.
We’ve been debating whether to go back to the resort or not (we wanted to spend few weeks again in March-April), but this last bit will make it really hard to return there. But if you know for sure that you won’t need to rely on L&F-check those websites where owners advertise their units and go ahead-the place is well worth.

Stayed here for 8 nights up to 29th October. We were in 504, at the bottom end of the resort about 5 minutes stroll from the bar and pool. The accommodation was clean and spacious, with two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The kitchen area was very well equipped and the crockery all matched ( important to my wife!). Being on the ground floor we had a patio area that didn't have much of a view but was comfortable with six chairs and a table. Going there in the "low" season meant not a lot going on of an evening, so all but one night we went out. The one night we did stay in we went to tradewinds. There were only three other small family groups in there and a guy playing music and singing. The reception manager was excellent and helped us to sort out internet access in the area above the reception as we needed to arrange extra baggage with Virgin on-line. He also helped out when we checked in and were told we had to pay over $600. Tried to explain to the receptionist that this was a package and prepaid, but she insisted that I had to pay. The manager came over looked at the screen and said everything was fine. That was a relief! In summary I would say a clean comfortable place to stay if you are visiting Disney. We were not, so found it a bit too far away for visiting the shopping malls in the I Drive area. Guess I should have studied the location in a bit more detail before booking. If any of you have stayed at Vista Cay on I Drive, I would say this is not as good, but for a location closer to Disney a viable alternative. Like Vista Cay, you will need a car.

Room Tip: Ground floor was bit noisy, you could here the kids above running about. Well they are on holiday, s...
