We stayed at the Villas as DVC members for our honeymoon and it was perfect! The room is impeccable, bathroom being split was SO helpful. Having pocket doors in the bathroom was a little different/weird but it wasn't really a problem once we actually used them.
The view from our room (which was a lake view) was great, although we had a bit more of a view of the other side of the building than we would have liked. We could see the water pageant from our balcony which was so great! It was a much better view of it than from the Contemporary.
We did have a few issues with the cast members being stand offish, and at some points downright rude. However, aside from dealing with the CMs directly at the resort it was an awesome time. The onsite spa is really great, possibly a little overpriced but the service and quality of treatments are wonderful, especially for being on vacation (read: you'll probably spend more anyways). Didn't have experience in in-room dining but I always love the restaurant options and the food court is so yummy!
Overall, stay here if you get the chance. It was much better as we were staying on points though, so it can be pretty expensive if you're paying cash, but the resort is worth it.
