Runaway Beach Club
Reviewed June 20, 2013

We were sorely disappointed in our experience here. We have stayed in numerous places in Florida like this one but nothing this horrible! The outlet in the master bedroom had no switch cover so if you were there with small children it was a hazard. The walls were damaged and needed a new coat of paint desperately. The TV remotes had absolutely no batteries in them. There were two bath towels (2 room unit). When we asked for more they said they would bring them the next day. They never showed so my husband went down a second time and was immediately handed more. Several light bulbs were dead and the blinds in the second room were damaged (you could look right into the room as they were broken off). I stuffed a wash cloth in there to cover the window. The carpet was so dirty I didn't want to take my shoes off. The vacuum was completely useless as the brushes wouldn't move. The gate key to let you into the facility only worked half the time. Had to get it replaced so another trip to the office. I wouldn't stay here again and frankly am surprised at anything positive anyone has to say about this place.

Nice Place to stay. I arrived at 2pm And was told the room wasn't ready until 4pm. Other than that Great location! Very spacious rooms..the kitchen is fully equipped with everything!
Will definitely come back!

We rented a two bedroom unit for 3 adults and 2 kids ($100/night) and it worked out wonderful. At the end of a Disney day (Typhoon lagoon), we appreciated the 'hometown' atmosphere, great facilities (washer and dryer) and spacious rooms. Given the facilities this place was a steal. Kissimmee, like most of Orlando has one of everything to eat, shop and otherwise spend money. Runaway is three miles from downtown Disney so it's easy to give Walt more of your loot.

The place was spacious and for the price and you do get alot of room but dont expect any thing fancy. We had 4 kids and 2 adults so the 2 bedroom we considered to be enough room bc of the fold out couch bed.. BUT the couch bed was broke....I wanted a place with washer and dryer and when we got there the dryer never would work. I called the front office but they never fixed it. Then the sink leaked under the cabinet and I called to let them know but no one ever came. I would say if your looking for alot of space for a cheap price its a good deal but be prepared for little maintance. OH and you can hear EVERYTHING if anyone is above or next to you. Walls are paper thin!

We recently returned home from a two week visit to Florida. 12 of those nights were spent at the Runaway Beach Club. We booked online but I ended up calling down to make sure that we had truly booked with the Runaway Beach Club proper and not an offsite company that rents out villas in Runaway Beach Club. Assured I had made the proper reservations I relaxed until the trip. We arrived on the Monday and checked in quickly. Getting to the villa we were initially impressed with the space and layout of the villa. This initial impression would stay with us throughout our entire stay although there were a couple minor, negligible things that would be nice to see changed and improved for future visits. The ONLY problem we had with our particular villa was with the dryer. There was a note that stated that the timer didn't work so that's fine - we can keep an eye on it. However, once the dryer gets hot it also won't restart when you stop it to check on your clothes. A call to the front office later we were told that a request would be put in to come and look at it. We didn't end up needing the dryer again during our visit so I'm not too sure if someone did come to fix it or not. But again, this is SUCH a minor point it did NOTHING to diminish the quality of our stay. One thing I would like to see improved is the in-villa TV channel lineup cards. There was one, and it worked...but there were better options for some of the channels that showed a clearer picture. So I'd really like to see a COMPLETE list of all available channels. Our villa featured two sofabeds in the living room however there were no sheets for these. Fortunately, our kids liked sleeping on them in couch mode so it wasn't really much of an issue. Our first trip down to the pool had part of the patio roped off as they were still working on the retaining wall however a later trip had the work finished and it opened back up. The kids loved the pools and we loved the hot tub.

Ultimately, we had an amazing vacation and a lot of it was due to having a great place to return to each night. We're not planning on another trip to Florida until 2017 now but Runaway Beach Club will be the first place we look at when it comes time to book our trip.

I booked a one night stay at the Runaway Beach Club in a 2 bedroom condo through groupon. The price I got through groupon was amazing. A total of $100 with tax and fee for 4 adults. The condo was very spacious and clean. The only downside was that we were close to the road and could hear traffic through part of the night in one of the rooms.

We stayed in a 1 BR, 1 BA (1 king in bedroom). Ceiling fans and central a/c. Sofas in LR also open up to Beds. Full size kitchen. Wal-Mart and Publix close by for supplies and if you don't feel like cooking there are a number of good eating places close by. Old town is also close by. Beautiful pool area (and hot tub) and separate kiddie pool area, indoor half basketball court, & exercise room with TV. The service was excellent! Some reviews I read weren't good; I was impressed and will be back soon. Especially with the front desk who noticed that we were smokers and asked if we would like a villa that had a porch on it and let us check it out before we checked in. We had a combined business and family trip.
