“Great for families!”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

We traveled with our teenage daughter and her friends for a short trip. We have stayed here at least ten times. This was the first time in spring. One of the pools is kid friendly as it has a "beach" type access. Great for toddlers to splash around. Wi-Fi not easy to connect. The resort does have mini-golf, pool table, ping pong table and an outdoor movie area. There is no restaurant on site but they do have hamburgers/hotdogs available. And, many places to eat on the main drag (US-192). We stayed in unit 1966B. You can see the Disney fireworks very well on the balcony of this buidling. The room does have it's own balcony. Full kitchen, make sure to use the vent over the stove (I set the smoke alarm off). The couch pulls out into a sofa but the kids didn't pull it out. It is big and L shaped. Jacuzzi tub. Concierge was helpful but they no longer sell single day discount tickets. Staff not as friendly as I'm used to for a Wydham resort but not terrible. I'm just used to exceptional service at Wyndham. All in all worth the trip.

Room Tip: When booking, "B" side is the bigger side. Those are the deluxe rooms.

We're a family of four and seasoned Disney / Orlando veterans. This hotel was the most disappointing. The rooms were dated with 80's furniture and design. Constant moldy smell. The staff were polite but somewhat rushed. Pool was nice with a new poolside bar. They had a new tall inflatable slide but you had to pay extra for it and it was in the parking lot. About 15 minute drive to Disney® and 20 minutes to MCO Airport. With so many hotels / time share resorts in Orlando, I would skip over this one next time.

Was pleasantly surprised 5 years ago to find such a beautiful resort in such a tacky town . My most recent stay however was disappointing. Sometimes all it takes is a tired , curt check-in person to throw off your first day. They really need to work on this because the other staff were very nice. Rooms are spacious but starting to get that Kissimmee smell. Internet service is shameful.

Room Tip: the concept is simple ...1 1/2 large rooms that can be used seperately or combined

The rooms and facility are very nice but the advertised free Internet is bogus. It takes about an hour to connect to the wifi and everything times out. Spent an hour on hold with hotair, the Internet provider, who denied that anything was wrong. If you need working wifi (and in this day and age who does not) skip this hotel.

The overall looks of the hotel were so beautiful the room was perfect it was even better than the picture the problem began when I had to check into the hotel. They claimed they were sold out and that they couldn't find the booking and then they could. I order a Romance package for our honeymoon we never got anything that was included. When I called the front office they never had any anwsers and the stories on why nothing was ever corrected differed. The front office manager had an attitude when I requested to have the package reduce to the regular rate since I never got additionals. The customer service during my stay was the worst.

Room Tip: Try to make sure you call before you come to the hotel to confirm you actually have the booking. If...

My family and I really enjoy our trips to star island. But I just wanted t take a moment to thank the collections dept., and specifically Denise Dinnel. Most of us think of collections as a dept. that only deals with collecting late payments and and bad debt. But I'm here to tell you that this is NOT THE CASE. Mrs. Dinnel was exemplary and tireless in her endeavors to clean up the situation surrounding my contract for an additional week per year. Members of the dept. went out of their normal areas of responsibility to help, and none more than Denise. And her boss, Barry Levinson, also jumped right in to help out. So props tothe dept., Mr.Levinson, and most of all Denise Dinnel who embodies and epitomizes professional excellence and that personable quality that we all look for. Thanks so much for caring...it makes all the difference!
