“Great Family spot!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2014

This was a nice spot, away from the hustle and crowds of Disney and Orlando. Easy to get to, lots of room, and a grocery store (Publix) very close by. It is spread out, but we stayed on the Lazy River side, which was perfect for the kids. The staff are fun and they work hard. The rooms were clean and it was a great stay!
Watch out for snakes around the lazt river if it is cloudy, they like to come out.... yikes!

Room Tip: Ask for the lazy river side or the main building side if you don't want to drive to a pool.

This is our 2nd visit & this time we had an apartment, very spacious & comfortable. It has a screened balcony so you can sit out anytime without the bugs. The accommodations are well spaced out & the resort is very well maintained, we will be back.

Room Tip: We like the villa & the apartment equally but if pushed would go for an upper floor apartment in...

There are several other places to stay in the area and would highly recommend that you choose another hotel. The Housekeeping and Restaurant Staff were helpful and accommodating, but the management staff was poor at best. This is a timeshare resort. We turned down the timeshare tour upon booking the room, but still wanted to stay there and pay hotel prices. We did not want to waste our valuable vacation time on a tour. Upon checking in we were presented with a “fun tour” this was a LIE. We were told that we would visit all of the fun activities that the resort had to offer. It sounded like fun, but it was a trap for the timeshare. They staff called my room at 7:30 a.m. for a wake up to call for their "tour." I told them my family was still sleeping and we would be there at 10:30 a.m. They AGAIN called my room and disturbed my family at 8:30 a.m. My family was held captive by their salespeople for 3 long terrible hours. I have been trying to reach a manager for over a week now with NO response. Also, someone else at the resort was complaining about roaches, and how the hotel fumigated her belongings when she asked them not to because her children have terrible asthma. This was by the far the worst place I have ever stayed as far as courtesy and professionalism.

We stayed in one of the condos that they have around the gold course and the rooms were spacious and the beds were very comfortable but while we were there our room was infested with cockroaches!! We called them the first night that we saw them and they sent someone to our room the next morning and so we thought we were in the clear but then my parents found a cockroach in their bathroom so we called again and they said that someone would come and check it out. Each time they came to look at our room they left a card and the last night that we were there we noticed a few bugs crawling out of the light switch in the kitchen and then a few more started and it was a cockroach nest that had just hatched!! They were all over the kitchen and it was so gross!!! The front desk kept saying that someone came to the room but they could have come in and left a card and called it good but the second and third time we called to notify them they didn't seem too concerned! I would've thought they would have given us some money back or something but nope they didn't and we were lucky we didn't take the buggers home with us!! I'm not sure how the hotel is on the premises but as for the condos they are nice but make sure you check for cockroaches!! Also I heard the pool is awesome but it was way too cold outside to check it out.

We have been owners here for 12 years.The units are always immaculate. There are activiites happening all day if you feel like taking a day or two off from visiting the parks. I would not recommend eating at the River Island Grilling Co. (Very expensive and the food was just O.K.). The required sales meeting is annoying, but they gave us $50.00 to use anywhere on the property.

Room Tip: River Island and The West Village are closest to the activities

Started out our vacation on a deal that an owner had received in the mail. It was a VIP referral program. Pay $$$ for the room for 5 days/4 nights and have the option to get 2 theme park tickets or an extra night for $$$. All you have to do is come to a 90 min. presentation. Great deal, had heard so many good things about it from the owners and thought why not check into it for next year's trip. Got in on April 26th around 9 pm or so and was told at check in "I had already checked in". I said no and he said Oh you were the one with the problem in the room. I said no, first time here. He goes in the back and comes back out saying there was a flood in our room and they changed rooms. (Don't think that was really the case but I went with it as we had been traveling all day). Got to the room. We had a 2 bedroom, they are nice but the doors are so paper thin that if you were in the bedroom and people were in the living room area you would be able to hear their conversations plain as day. Next day, we go to the pool, the shuttle drivers are awesome and very nice!!! We have a great day at the pool and no issues. Then it is time for the presentation the next morning. It said it was at 7:45, Almost everyone is there at that time and no sales people come out until at least 8. Needless to say it was 3 hours long, yes we did ask questions but the sales guy and the closer started to get nasty when we said no. He said you asked for something less and I found it for you, why doesn't that work and on and on. We didn't feel the value was there ect. We told our sales guy no again and he said he was going to get the survey guy and no was no. Then the closer came over again and was talking very loud about why wouldn't we want to do it etc. We just said no and then the survey guy came over and started his survey and then throws another deal at you. How many times do you have to say NO!!! After we are done, I go to get our 2 free tickets as the way I read the deal and it was not that way. It was you can pay this much money for the tickets. Not the way I read it or the owner. I was suppose to have paid for the tickets or extra night when I booked. Since this was not mentioned while booking I couldn't get the discounted ticket deal. After many calls, I was able to finally get tickets as we had friends with us that had already bought them for the park. The property is nice but they get you for paying for fun activities. You have to pay for putt putt golf, you have to pay for a tube on the lazy river, Even owners have to pay to do these things. Just crazy. We went to check out and the lady asked how everything was and we said we have had better experiences and her reply was oh. Not I am sorry is there anything we can do or would you like to speak to our manager. Nothing. It just goes to show that they don't care about the people that own or rent. The owners were very disgusted in this when we told them about everything.

Room Tip: We were put in the West Village closest to the gate in the tall buildings. I think they are the old...

Hello Tammy. Thank you for taking part in our Owner Referral program and taking advantage of the great offer available to you. Although we’re disappointed to hear about your delays at check-in, we’re delighted that you found the room to be spacious and accommodating. It’s great that the service and pool met your expectations as well. We apologize if you felt any pressure at all during your tour presentation. Our team always looks for packages that best fit the guests’ lifestyle and we’re sorry if their passion may have felt like any sort of pressure. As we want our guests to feel comfortable and relaxed while with us, this would never be our intention. Our Owner Referral packages offer a great deal to friends of owners and gives them the opportunity to add tickets or an additional night to their visit for only $100 more. If there was any miscommunication of this information, we sincerely apologize. You’re right, we do offer a wide variety of amenities on site and some do come at a small fee. However, amenities such as basketball, use of our pools, and kids’ golf come at no cost to you. We hope that you consider us to host a future vacation of yours and give us the chance to show you some vacation fun.

We've been owners for 16 years and gone to Orange Lake every Easter. It has tons of things for the kids to do from jet skis, swimming in all the pools, putt putt, beach and water volleyball. The resort shuttle makes it easy for the kids to get around and I've always thought it is extremely safe. Keeping the kids busy allows Momma and I to have adult beverages by the pool and relax. It's an ideal vacation for the entire family. I've seen many changes at Orange Lake over the years and its always better each year. The grounds are immaculate, the villas and units are updated regularly. We take several vacations a year and I'm always comparing every place we go to Orange Lake. To date, nothing compares with all the amenities. My only warning is the sales people are brutal. I don't go to the owners update anymore because its very high pressure. I don't need that on vacation.
