Our family (2 adults and children ages 15, 12 & 9) stayed here for 8 days and 7 nights in a 2BR, 2 bath suite and overall it was a very nice place at an even better price ($900 total). Here's what I'll share with you:
The cleanliness of the rooms was very good. Now we didn't break out the white gloves but the sheets and towels were clean and there weren't any bugs (not that we saw). One BR consisted of 2 twin beds (perfect for kids) with a shared night stand and one dresser. It also had a 22" flat screen TV which we didn't use but would have been too small to watch from the beds. The master bedroom consisted of a king bed, armoires on either side and a 32" flat screen TV. There was also access to the balcony (we stayed on the third floor) from the master bedroom as well as from the living room. The master bathroom was also part of the bedroom, unlike the smaller bedroom which was separate. The master bath had a jacuzzi tub, single sink and separate toilet. The thing about the master bedroom that I didn't like was the lack of a nightstand. I like to have my alarm clock right next to my bed and this one was literally across the room. Also, the armoires were right next to the bed and one had the room phone mounted to it. So every time I turned I knocked the phone off the hook and had to pick it up.
The kitchen was fully stocked with flat wear, dishes and cooking utensils. It also had an electric stove, dishwasher, full sized refrigerator, coffee maker, toaster and blender. The dining/living room was a good size (6 chairs around the table) and the sofa was a pull out double bed (bed sheets were also provided). The TV in the living room was also a little small (32" also) but did the job. The balcony had a small bistro table and only 2 chairs.
Maid service is extra and if you want extra towels you have to swap out dirty ones for clean ones and you have to let them know on Tuesday because Wednesday is when housekeeping comes in. If you don't let them know, you're outta luck! Towels were provided by both pools and were ALWAYS fully stocked. There was never a problem getting a lounge chair to sit in the sun at either pool. Which brings me to the outside. There are two pools, one has two very small water slides, a hot tub, and a spray pool for little kiddies. The other pool was just a pool, nothing special. Don't wanna swim? Try basketball or tennis. They have both on site and have supplies so you don't have to lug your own on vacation. There is also a small video game room with some older games as well as air hockey (always a favorite).
The continental breakfast is nothing special at all. Coffee wasn't bad and the pastries were just ok. Don't go expecting a whole lot!
Every staff person we encountered were all very friendly. The Hispanic girl at the front desk (sorry I forgot her name) was very, very nice and very knowledgable about the property.
The property is literally less than 5 miles from Disney (less than a 10 minute drive). There was also plenty of other amenities around the property such as gift shops, restaurants and shopping plazas. IHOP, Perkins, Denny's, Olive Garden and Ponderosa to name a few eateries. And Super Target and Publix for food shopping.
If the price stayed the same we would probably stay here again in the future because it was so convenient for our Disney vacation. I hope this helps you make your decision.
