“Wow, big difference!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

What can I say, after reading the glowing reviews the hotel received under new management I had to go see for myself. It's Festiva now, (love the new name) the place has really changed, with renovated furnishings, fresh paint and an extremely helpful staff. I was impressed and would like to give them a second chance. It was obvious to me and my family that a monumental effort was made to improve the property and it shows. How great is it that it's just around the corner from Disney? It is not on a main drag, so it's nice and quiet. The pool is still one of the best features and they've cleaned up the playground. Go ahead and give it a try. I couldn't resist the sales pitch and bought in...but the next trip is to Europe!

Room Tip: Ask for one near the pool...

The place is very quiet and has a remote feeling, yet it is close to stores and attractions. It was clean and roomy. The pool was very nice, it was big but not deep. The staff was very friendly. Would highly recommend.

Our "room" was a 1 BR condo - large BR, huge bath and decent size living/dining/kitchen combined and we paid the same as we would a moderate hotel. The room was dated but for the price paid, who cares? The property is close to everything including many restaurants, Disney and SeaWorld. I would stay here again for sure.

We stayed in the Executive one bedroom and were very pleased. The bed was comfortable and location was a few blocks off from highway 192 so it was quiet yet close to all the restaurants. The Disney property was only a couple minutes away so it was about as convenient as it gets staying outside of the Disney resorts. We really enjoyed the jetted tub and the water heater was more than adequate to accommodate showers and fill the tub. We did have wifi but signal was a little weak at times however that really was not much of an issue for us. Would recommend and stay again.

I had to take a group of students to Disney, so I was looking for a cheap hotel for my husband and I . Festiva was a wonderful surprise! The hotel is located off the main road. We loved that because we felt away from the craziness. If you didn't have a car then you would have an issue. We stayed in room L21 and it was so beautiful. The kitchen and bath had granite counters, there were all new appliances in the kitchen and flat screens in the living and bedrooms. The room looked fresly painted with clean tile throughout. We loved having a place to relax and a separate place to sleep. We loved it so much we decided to come back with our young kids in March. We didn't swim in the pool but we did walk by and it was clean and seemed large enough. We were also right near a basketball court that will be fun when we return. I didn't mention that the room also has a nice screened porch. We sat in the morning and evening just to enjoy the weather.

Negatives (very minor): When you check in, you have to go to a separate counter to get your parking pass. This is where they try to sell you a free breakfast at the other resort. We had to wait about 10 minutes to get a parking pass. It wasn't a huge deal, but we had just been stuck in traffic for over an hour and we just wanted to check in so we could go eat. Once it was our turn she moved pretty quickly. Another negative was that there wasn't enough hot water. Once we figured this out the first time we just staggered our showers. I will have to be more careful when we come back with 4 people in March. There was also difficulty parking. We came back late from a park and had to park pretty far from the building. Again, not a huge deal, but something to know. Finally, the toilets are really loud when you flush. REALLY loud. Only an issue at night when rooms around you are flushing.
Overall, a very good experience. As I said, we will be back next month because we enjoyed our time at Festiva. Both trips we are only staying in the small one bedroom. I would like to compare to the larger one bedroom, but that was all that had available.

We are Festiva owners and stayed for a week in Feb 2013.

This resort is super for access to the parks and interstate, right off 192 where you will find absolutely everything you might want, 15 minutes to Disney etc. Yet very, very quiet and relaxing. Great amenities, but not much to do at resort .. which is OK if you are spending the day at one of the parks or out and about. Nicely furnished kitchen, granite counters, new appliances, new LCD TV's, comfortable furniture, remote controlled fans in all the rooms, very comfortable beds, jacuzzi and much more.

One caution, this property was recently purchased by Festiva and is undergoing complete renovation of the buildings .. DO NOT let them put you in one of the older units, you will NOT be satisfied ... but you will love the newer ones.

Room Tip: Ask for a newly renovated room, do NOT take the older ones

Traveling without wife, thought I would try this property---it was outstanding. I travel all the time and the quality of this facility was great. Clean--clean--clean. One bedroom apt. was huge. Very well appointed and the screen porch was a delight. The new management is doing an outstanding job of improving this property--the grounds were very nice. The area is away from the traffic, and it was very quiet. Staff were gracious and helpful. Will stay here when I am in Orlando again.

Room Tip: Top floor is always quieter
