Beautiful grounds and lots of activities for the children. River area was fantastic. So was our three bedroom villa. Restaurants were wonderful, too. Timeshare presentation is a very hard sell and takes far longer than 90 minutes. That was our only complaint for the entire stay. Recommend this place to anyone.

Hello! Thanks for staying with us and telling us about your stay. We really appreciate your feedback and are pleased to see our resort met your expectations. Our River Island area is great for kids and plenty places to kick back and relax as well! We apologize for any miscommunication regarding our tour, the presentations do last around 90 minutes and may take a bit longer when trying to find the perfect package for your needs. We hope to see you again real soon!

We have a time share ownership with another location in Orlando and thought we'd change it up and visit Orange Lake. We were renting a week as well as my husband's brother and family - they are co-owners of the time share. We were originally going to check in on Sunday and the brother on Saturday, but flight times etc. changed it and the brothers decided to reverse their check in dates. My husband's brother was told by Orange Lake that there would be no problem at check in - well there was! It took a ridiculous amount of time to check in and they made it seem like the end of the world to check in on Saturday instead of Sunday (we were just switching with the co-owner who verified this in advance!). Lucky for me they were serving free green beer as I waited, waited and waited!

The room was fine - typical of all of our time share transfers, but we got to look out over and see Highway 192, which is busy morning, noon and night!

We quickly found out that nothing is included with your stay - for access to the Hippo (a giant blow up slide - nothing spectacular, but fun for kids I suppose), the mini-golf and to get a tube for the lazy river, they charge $54.00 a week per person - INSANE! We sat through one of their time share talks to get most of our money back.

The grounds are nice and they keep them in good condition, but the resort is so large, you have to drive everywhere or wait for their shuttles. At our home time share, we are ALWAYS placed near our family - not here!!! We were on the far entrance end and they were way past the reservation area - no joke, about a 7-10 minute drive. The cousins didn't see much of each other nor did we spend a lot of time with my mother-in-law and other family since it was a bit of a pain.

Rooms were fine - our TV was old and the picture quality sucked. Kitchen was outdated compared to our home time share. Our family members refrigerator didn't produce ice and they brought them a whole new frig, except that it was filthy.

When we wanted to get discounted tickets for Universal (since we sat through the time share talk), we wasted over an hour driving all over the resort to find the location to purchase - everywhere we went they sent us somewhere else. They we just got a voucher and not the tickets and we had to waste over an hour in line at Universal to get the actual tickets - we said forget it and just returned the next day since so much time was lost.

BIG ISSUE - get home and there are some dining charges on our credit card (it's a credit card free resort - you use your room key), which were fine, but there were three large front desk charges that could not be explained. My mother-in-law called and someone told her it was for room cleaning...what? They didn't enter our room once and it was never cleaned - we got some extra TP and dishwasher detergent but that was it!!!! Today I look at the credit card again, those individual front desk charges have disappeared and we now have one HUGE charge that is about $200.00 more then the original individual charges. They have to resolve this or my rating will drop even more.

In the end, we CANNOT wait to return to Vistana - 7 pools, no extra charges for this that or the other thing and THEY ACTUALLY CLEAN YOUR ROOM while you are there - without charging you!!!!

Room Tip: Clearly stay away from the entrance if you don't want constant traffic from 192 or the golfers!

Orange Lake is a good vacation destination for golfers, families & kids. Gardens and pools area are well maintained. Lazy River is not to be missed! Lots of green spaces, chairs & lounge chairs for sun bathers or those wanting shade around all pools including River Island (Lazy River) and the Splash pool the biggest in the complex. There activities for every interest. The resort has small shops, restaurants and bars where the prices are comparable to those outside of the resort. The 2 golf courses and practice range were very nice and well looked after.

Resort is very close to Disney World. Disney staff have a counter in the lobby to answer questions and sell passes. There is Publix within walking distance of most accommodation buildings. Directly across US192 (Irlo Bronson Highway) there is a Super Target, TJ Maxx, Ross, liquor store, Bahama Breeze, Olive Garden, etc. All major restaurant chains are near. The best sports bar is Millers Ale House.

Accommodation is family oriented. We had a 3 bedroom, 3 bath suite with a fully equipped kitchen. All basic supplies were there, dish soap, dishwasher soap, paper towels, coffee, shampoo, garbage bags, etc etc. Unit was clean and bright. No daily maid service but towels were quickly replaced on request.

Room Tip: kids meal at River Island at $5.00 was excellent for kids or adults.

We just stayed at this resort for one week over spring break! We stayed in the river island part which we were told was the nicest on the property, we agreed accommodations were lovely and perfect for 6 of us! What we were not told at check in was no maid service and we had to wash our own towels. But we just did them anyways! Pool was fantastic my kids used the lazy river- no it's not super fast by meals of a lazy river but it is cool, pretty scenery and shooting water! There was a jacuzzi and my kids loved the hippo slide and mini golf, we'll worth the $50 extra for kids for the whole week!

Grocery store was close we cooked breakfast & ate out at night. We also did a few days at disney which was super close! I could hear fireworks each night. The screened in porch was such a nice feature. We loved everything about this place! The only things I found un-enjoyable we coming during spring break, and being close to the doors they are always doing timeshare tours to our building all morning that's all we heard were vehicles and service carts! Not to mention the phone calls to our room daily we could have done with out the automated calls to tell us dinner specials, they are posted in every elevator it was clear dinner specials!! Overall very affordable and huge but great property! Very convenient to all the action!!!

Hi there, Lisa. Thanks for your feedback and for staying with us during your Spring Break getaway. We’re delighted to see that your villa gave you just the room you needed for your family, helping lead to a comfortable and relaxing stay. Our resort may be different than a traditional hotel experience in regards to daily housekeeping service, but we do offer more in-villa amenities such as many modern appliances to assist with the tasks of home. We hope that you consider us on a future trip for more vacation fun in the Orlando area.

The resort has everything for everyone. Dont try to plan everyday of your week outside the resort or you will miss everything this place has. 4 putt putt courses and the tubes for the lazy river are an added price, but do a 2 hour time share tour inside the resort and get them to comp the passes free but also get some food comped too. Starbucks in market square was perfect. The rooms, perfect. With washer and dryer, even has detergent so you dont need to buy any. Get a drink cup for 15 bucks and free sodas all week in any of the food places. Im coming back here!

A last minute choice and we were pleasantly surprised. 10 minutes from Disney, huge condo suites with full kitchen and laundry, amazing pools with lazy river for the non park days. We would definitely go back and recommend highly.
