“Great family resort!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

We stayed at this resort for one week(10 nov-17nov 2012) and we were very satisfied with the service we received. Every request we had was promply adressed by José at the desk. The staff was very kind with us and made our stay fabulous! As for the villa, we stayed at room 3180 and it was very well situated. Close to the pool and had a kid park in the back yard. The villa was not one renovated but offered all we needed. We were especially impressed by the sauna, gym and steam room. Very clean and inviting. I would come back to this resort and try to make more time to enjoy the beautiful pool and lasy river.

Room Tip: If you like a little action, ask to be close to the main pool.

I did ALOT of research like many of you are doing prior to deciding where to stay in Florida, after reading several reviews I was apprehensive about staying here due to some of the reviews, but I can say I am definitely glad this is the resort we chose to stay at. Our entire stay (13/30/12-12/7/12) was wonderful. The grounds are impecable, everyone is very friendly and helpful and curteous. We were in an updated villa, our washer/dryer worked excellent, our mattresses were fine (not like home, but close), our kitchen was stocked with enough pots,pans, and cookwear to prepare plenty of meals with ease. The security is fine, the sliding glass door itself has a lock on it, plus it has two bars, one for the bottom of the door and one for middle of door, the main entry door has two locks as well, I felt very safe. The remotes are a little tricky, they are the universal remotes, so they are tricky to run and get used to. They go above and beyond to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. As far as the housekeeping complaints in these reviews, weekly resort/condo rentals usually don't come with daily housekeeping unless you pay for it, but really people, do you change your bedding at home daily? There are plenty of towels in the condo, (be sure to check under (the TV stand). I would highly recommend this resort.

Room Tip: We had an end villa, so we shared only one wall with our neighbors and we were in a section across t...

we book thru hotels.com to add 3 nights to the end of our stay. We have stayed at 9 of these type of condo units in the past 9 yrs.In this area, the unit we got put into was definetly old style although they have begun the renovation and the kitchen had been updated. but the rest of the rooms definetly had not still had metal shutter closet doors no room in the bedrooms very small bathroom was tiny and furnature was more than tired. However the unit was reasonably clean and had everything we needed. The grounds around the units is not well kept however the pool area has been beautifully renovated. Talking with other families during hot tub time we found many people who have been coming for years and love this resort they have seen the units being renovated and we are told that they changes are great in those units, it was really a great family style resort with great access to resaurants etc just off 195 its about 15 min to the parks from resort, easy drive.The fellow who gets you tickets for things and info was very pleasant and helpful thanks!

This is an older facility that has been refurbished, but the room is showing some signs of its age. For example, the shower head was at about 6 feet, which for tall people is too low. Some of the electrical outlets need to be replaced as power cords would not stay in some of the outlets. The above the range microwave was broken, so they placed a smaller microwave unit next to the stove. The king size bed we slept in was two twin bed mattresses, with some kind of board running down the middle--don't plan to cuddle in the middle of the bed with your spouse. No ice maker in the refrigerator.

Because of the price and location I would stay there again. Very convenient to Disney, with a Walmart, Target, and many restaurants nearby. Also, security guards were visible at all times so I felt safe. The lazy river was excellent, but we only used it for 1 hour. If you are going to one of the parks and are looking primarily for a place to sleep, this is a great place.

We stayed here from November 12th for 8 days and as always we had a great stay the unit we have always stayed in (requested) was good! we loved the Karaoke at the bar well done Scott for trying to find all of those songs!! Our favourite part of this resort as mentioned before is the giant hot tub...there is nothing like getting in this after a long day on your feet! the main pool was good as always and the computer room is very handy when you need to do stuff! We will be back next year and really do miss this place! keep up the good work guys and we will see you soon!

Room Tip: Ask for a refurbished unit close to the pool or reception

I was a little apprehensive about staying here due to the reviews, but i am definitely glad I did. I called ahead of time and asked for an updated villa due to my husbands allergies, and upon arrival they had switched me to an updated villa in front of the lake! It was Great! We loved the place! The only problem is the mattresses were a little thin, and the microwave need to be replaced. The grounds wee well kept, and the pool area was immaculate as well! I would definitely stay again! I had to ut my visit short due to an emergency at home, but loved the three days there!

I live in Kissimmee and my family from up north traveled here to visit me and my family. Everyone was pleased with the resort. After reading some of the previous reviews we made sure to request an updated unit, which we did receive.

The kitchen was big enough to cook any type of meal you might want, however it was stocked with the bare minimum of cookware and dishes. The unit is designed to sleep six but there were only 5 plates and not enough glasses, and the frying pan handle fell off when my dad was cooking breakfast. One call to the front desk and these issues were resolved within 90 minutes. They provided a brand new frying pan and new out of the box glasses and an extra plate. There are also public grills outside for anyone to use. Just come prepared to clean it. The appliances including a dishwasher all worked well. Stainless steel and granite countertops.

The 2 chairs at the breakfast bar were very difficult to get in and out of, had to jump to get into them because the footrest was way too low. The dining room table was just large enough for six. There is room in the dining room for an air mattress which we did use.

Living room consisted of a sofa bed and a chair, TV and a coffee table.

The patio was nice. It had a patio set with 4 chairs as well as a chase lounge and side table. Plenty of room and screened in.

Downstairs bathroom was good enough with an elongated toilet and a small vanity. The shower downstairs was tiny.

The first bedroom upstairs had a nice sized closet, dresser, night stand, TV, and two single beds. Nice for two kids. The other bedroom had a king bed but a small closet. Washer/dryer combo was upstairs and is very noisy. Had to run the dryer at least twice to get anything dry, but it did the job. Upstairs bathroom was a nice size with a small vanity, typical tub/shower combo and elongated toilet.

Overall the unit itself was very nice, just a few more attentions to details by the management and it would have been perfect.

The resort grounds are very nice. The pool area is great for a family. The main pool is just the right size and not too deep, so didn't have to worry about the little ones that much. The water slides were fun, but be careful of the yellow slide, it's pitch dark and very fast and one of my sons hit his head on the side on they way down, so be careful (my other son loved the yellow slide and did not have any head bumping problems). The lazy river is very nice. All the water attractions mentioned above are heated as well, which was good because it was only in the low 70's for our visit. Plenty of seating around the main pool and there are also cabanas you can rent for the day that have seating, a TV, and a fridge. The smaller pools on the property are nice as well. There is also a nice kids splash pad and a hot tub with a beautiful two sided fireplace. The bar is located at the main pool area and has access from inside and outside. Nice seating at the bar. Just about every hour they have some sort of activity planned, some are free and some are not. They had fun games for the kids, snow cones, tie dye t-shirts, cash bingo, keroekee, and family movie night.

The activity center had a room where you can play games, a small arcade, and restrooms. Upstairs there are banquet facilities, a workout room with 3 tv's, a few treadmills, a couple elipticals, recumbent bikes, and a couple other machines as well as a universal weight machine and free weights. Next to the the workout room is a steam room and sauna and restrooms. Everything was very clean.

I read in previous reviews that this place is in the middle of nowhere. NOT TRUE! There are lots of restaurants within walking distance including Olive Garden, Friday's and many more. And it's only a short drive to pretty much anything else you might want to eat. Disney is a 10 minute drive. Someone in a previous review complained about the cost of taxi's. Well that really doesn't have anything to do with the resort so I don't see how a comment like that belongs here. If your don't want to pay for a taxi or rent a car there is a scheduled shuttle to all the attractions that picks you up and drops you off right in front of the resort.

Overall I was very impressed with this place and I would stay again. The only thing keeping me from giving it a 5 was the issues with the kitchen. As long as you get an updated unit you will be satisfied!

Room Tip: Request an updated room.
