The set up was perfect for my big family. It had two separate condos connected to each other. Each condo had a clean kitchen (equiped with cooking equipment and tools) and clean bathroom. The only thing I would complain about was the bugs that got in through the back doors. But we bought some bug spray to take care of that.

The view from the balcony!! Was so perfect. We could see the Disney theme parks and fire works every night. So nothing was too far away.
Overall I had a great experience. Not much to complain about except a few bugs

Thank you for your recommendation. We’re so happy that you enjoyed your vacation with us. With Florida’s tropical climate it is to be expected that bugs will sometimes enter the suites if the balcony doors are left open. Thank you again for your review and we hope that we can share our hospitality with you again.

We stayed in the newer building #16, 9th FL unit 909 A and B. We had the corner unit with 2 units connecting. Its a very good setup when traveling with 2 famiies. We were able to gather together but also had our privacy. The full Kitchen and bedroon setup was all very nice. Applicances were fairly new, clean, so no complaints. Love having a washer and dryer in the room. We had the view of the fireworks from our balcony. The pool looked awesome, wish we were able to use it more.

The Lowdown: 3 days before the end of our trip, I saw a few ants in the corner of the kitchen floor. I used a napkin and picked it up and as I as walking towards the garbage, I saw a few more.... I realized there was a whole colony of them. So I called the front desk, they said they could spray non toxic ant spray. I really didnt want to since I had a child in the room. But I figured I had 3 days to deal with this. So they came immediately and sprayed our kitchen. We waited an hour in the other unit for it air out. So now I have all these dead ants in the kitchen, Great!!! So 3 days pass and we are ready to check out, guess what? Dead ants in my luggage in the room. Not how I wanted to end the trip.

The hotel and unit itself are great. I think cleaning staff need to spend more time cleaning the room the one day a week. Her cleaning was not very thorough. The floor still had the same dirt there after she "cleaned" it. They need to de-pesticide at least once a month. The ants in my room ended up going to the other unit where my family stayed. They are obiviously spreading quickly. If it wasnt for the antz, this place would just be perfect.

Thank you for taking the time to post about your experience with us. We’re sorry that you found our resort lacking in certain areas. In Florida’s rainy season, ants will sometimes find a way into the suites through drainage pipes or open balconies. We do our best to combat the issue by having a contracted professional pest control company service the resort frequently. We regret these issues during your stay and we hope that you will return again so that we may have any opportunity to exceed all of your expectations.

The rooms are "clean" however the staff will take your stuff! After multiple calls to the managers
(there are several) the bottom line was " we are not responsible for housekeeping services. When I called housekeeping they say... sorry there is nothing here. We brought our own anti-snore pillows (only way I can sleep is if my husband doesn't snore) ... we had the pillow in a Very Bright Lime Green Pillow case...hard to miss it. Low and behold it disappeared form the room. What is wrong with management! If a guest has property stolen out of the room by the staff that works for them... in my book they are responsible! I would NOT recommend this place to anyone... go some place else. FYI Our room was very small as compared to some of the other hotels in the area. OF the 3 we stayed at we like the Sheraton the best.

Room Tip: Stay someplace else!

Vacation Village is a really nice hotel in the Orlando Area, the rooms are good, specially if you stay in one with full kitchen, on the other hand if you stay in one of the older buildings the rooms are not good... really old apartments that dont worth the stay. In the hotel there are not too many things to do, the pool is ok, and that´s pretty much it. But in general it´s ok.

Canon Camera bag containing $1600 worth of equipment stolen from our suite while out at Disney Parks. They claimed they were fixing the bad locks on the suite doors while we were gone. came back and the camera was missing. Resort claims they can't do anything about it. What kind of place is this that could such a breach in security, when travelers are out of their room? Obviously someone had enough time to go through the bag before taking it room safe not big enough for larger items. SMH, must be common practice their.

Thank you for your review. We’re very sorry for the experience you had while on vacation. A lock investigation was made on the guest unit door and it was determined that there were no forced entries or unauthorized key entries to the guest unit. The entries recorded for this door were made from the guest key. The repairman only accessed the foyer door, which does not allow direct access to the unit. As you noted we do provide a safe in all of the rooms and to err on the side of caution, we encourage all of our guests to use it during their stay to secure their valuables. As with any missing item claim, we will not be held responsible for anything left unsecured in the units. We regret that your items were never located and hope that this experience doesn’t deter you from visiting Orlando again.

We used our RCI points to stay Sunday to Sunday in August. After reading alot of reviews, we knew what to expect and what to ask for. We had two teenagers with us and had booked an A/C unit for them to have their own room. When we arrived early, checkin was a loud and a tense experience with the high level of the noise in the lobby. Once we were at the counter, we didn't need to ask for a certain building, we received what we wanted. Building 19 - a very peaceful and newer location. The man stated our room was not ready yet but would call us once it was. That took 10 minutes and we were already being contacted. Wonderful! The units were wonderful and no complaints. We loved the pool and hot tub. We chose this location due to it is close to Disney and other attractions. When you read the reviews, you need to really say to yourself would that bother me or am I really here to relax and not to complain about every little encounter. I would recommend this location to anyone looking to use their points or weeks. Great location and great property.
