Magnuson Grand at Oak Plantation Resort
Ranked #85 of 155 Hotels in Kissimmee
Reviewed July 20, 2013

We stayed here from 7/11-7/18. We have no complaints and felt as we were at home in our large one bedroom condo. I loved having a kitchen and washer/dryer. The pool was great and heated and the hot tub was nice as well. They also have a kids pool. The tiki bar at the pool has some great drink specials from 4-6pm and we enjoyed that. Theres plenty of daily activities for the kids and the family as well. We would stay here again. If you want luxury this is not your place but if you just want comfort and convenience then this is it!

My family and I stayed here this past weekend as part of a time share vacation package. We booked late and it was one of just 2 resorts available, but the booking agent said great things about it and the pics were nice. Most importantly, it had a 1 bedroom, kitchen and washer/dryer in the unit, which was what I was looking for with two kids in tow. The pros: the people who worked there were very kind and friendly, maintenance even showed up at 11 at night to fix the dishwasher. The pool area was also pretty and the water was very warm. Phil, the bartender, was great and the area was quiet with lots of peacocks. The cons: the unit was clean but clearly worn out. The washer and dryer were combined into one single machine (you switched between uses with buttons) the washer worked, but the dryer was only able to get things to a slightly damp state after hours of drying. The dishwasher was impossible to close as the lever that moves to the right to close the door and lock it was too rusted. The maintenance guy came and got it to run. The next day I had to do it myself and was only able to with the help of a dishcloth and leaning my entire weight in to it. The bed was very hard, but that was ok, the worst thing was the pillows. There were three sorry excuses for pillows. They were literally like a pillowcase half filled with cotton balls. We went out the next day and bought pillows to use for the remainder of our stay. Ultimately, the place was run down and in need of some serious repair. I had heard that there are renovated units, which I asked for, but clearly did not get. Even if we had though, the surrounding area is still kind of a downer. Despite the kind people, I would not stay here again.

Room Tip: Make sure you get a renovated unit. If you don't, don't bother.

The accommodations were ok. Nothing spectacular. Room was clean and well furnished but dated. The pool and playgrounds were good for kids. It was centrally located to most attractions. The best aspect of this place was the cost, it was a third of the price of other places.

We arrived late to check into the resort. At first glance upon entering the unit it appeared great, we had been on the road for 12 hours and were happy to have arrived.

I had read the reviews for this resort after we booked, so I had called twice and asked to be booked in a renovated unit, AND was assured that I had a renovated unit. BUT, I hope that the unit I stayed in was not considered renovated.

The kitchen and bathroom floors were sticky or had some type of film on them. I bought clorox wipes and wiped both floors down. The bottom of the table was broken on both sides, I did call and tell the front desk that it was that way when we arrived. The dishwasher was not bolted into the space so everytime you opened the door, the whole unit came out. The washer/dryer unit did not appear to dry, but after some fooling around with it we did get to do a load of clothes. They should have instructions with the washer/dryer unit since not many people have ever seen one let alone know how to use one.

The weather when we were there (June 29 - July 4) but can't blame them for that!!.

The staff at the resort was great everyone from the Ti Ki bartender to the front desk staff were great.

Just disappointed that I had specifically asked for a renovated room and assured that I would receive one. Maybe I did get a renovated unit, but I certainly hope not. There is wear on the buildings around the pool area and general maintenance is needed.

The overall stay was ok, the kids enjoyed the pool, when it was not raining!!

We checked into this resort and two hours later immediately checked out. We were shocked how dirty, old and smelly our room was. The grounds were not kept up and there was trash all over the floor of the reception area. When I checked in there were candy wrappers, trash and crumbled food on the floor. That being my first impression, I knew we were in trouble. We had planned to spend the entire week there but that quickly changed. When I went to check out the front desk, didn't even ask why I was unhappy or why I was leaving so quickly. I will never stay there. Thankfully interval international was very helpful and we got our week back but we still had to pay money to go stay in a clean hotel. It also many miles from the theme parks, not a short distance drive as advertised!

We booked a 2bdrm at Oak Plantation from 6/28-7/2/13, and we were miserable when inside the room. Pictures on the internet are very deceiving!!!! The rooms smell musty from the minute you open the door. We left the ceiling fans running to see if that would somewhat kill the smell and it only made it worse. The bathrooms in both rooms were moldy and dirty. One of the nights we used the microwave to warm up food for the kids and there was left over crusty food on the inside of the microwave- totally gross!
The pool grounds were not well maintained at all!! The pool was not the clear clean water that is shown on the internet...there was leaves inside the pool everyday and the floor of the pool was very slimy and slippery from all the debris in the pool. Never once did we see any maintenance being done in or around the pool. The bartender at the Tiki bar was very rude despite the fact that we tried forming small talk thinking that maybe he was just having a bad day. Not the case- he himself was very negative about his job.
Look very closely into this resort before booking- one thing they do NOT mention on their site is that there is a road from inside the resort that leads right to the Oak Plantation Motor Lodge thats around the corner from this resort. We saw "strays" on several occasions walking into the resort from that road looking around to the units and at the vehicles parked.
Totally didn't feel safe outside the unit nor comfortable inside the unit with the musty odor coming from all the vents. Most of the time we had no choice but to spend the day outside of the resort just not to be there.
I would not recommend this place to anyone who is looking to relax after a long day out or trying to have a nice day at the pool.
The staff at the lobby were very nice at check in but once something was brought to their attention they gave the whole "I'm sorry we'll aware management-leave your number"...yet we never heard back from them.

Room Tip: Spend a few more bucks and get the value of your money by going somewhere else!

Dear Stephanie M,

Your comments are valuable to us, and we thank you for taking the time to express what you experienced while at our resort.

We would like to sincerely apologize for all of the inconveniences encountered during your stay, from the Housekeeping to the Tiki Bar and Pool Departments. Your comments will be reviewed by our Management Team.

Please know that our pool is cleaned at 7:00 am so that it is ready for our guests first thing in the morning, this might have been the reason why you did not see anyone working on it.

The reason why you saw some guests from the Inn next door walk over to the resort is because we own that property too, and those guests are welcome to use the resort facilities.

The safety of our guests is our number one priority and it is never our intention to make anyone feel like they are not in safe environment. We do offer nightly security for all of our guests.

All of the issues mentioned will be addressed with each of those departments.

Again, please accept our apologies and feel free to contact us if you have any questions,

Kindest Regards,
Oak Plantation Resort

Room Tip: ask for the 'new, upgraded" rooms. Our room was great also though.
