“The only place to stay.”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

If you are going to the theme parks in Orlando with a group, this is the only place to conciser. The Lake Eve Resort is perfectly situated between 5-10 minutes from all the Orlando Theme Parks. Even better the resort offers FREE shuttle service to all parks, the only draw back is that there is only one shuttle to each park so plan wisely and you can save a lot of money on parking.

As far as the room itself, it is a great value. Don't get me wrong the bedding is not five star, but it is much, much better than a standard hotel (Orlando Hilton included). The room was spotless; no roach motel here. Our two bedroom suite could comfortably hold 8 people. The kitchen was great, we saved money by making some small meals. The resort supplies you with plates, cups, silverware, cookware and cleaning supplies. The refrigerator even has an ice maker. With three TV's you can also keep people entertained when not at the parks.

As far as the resort, we didn't spend to much time using their amenities. First of all you can save time by buying and printing your tickets to any theme park right at the front desk, if you buy a multiple day pass you can save some money too. They also have a pair of computers and printers if you need them, but wifi is included in your stay. The pool and hot tub look very nice, I can't say that i personally used them, but they look nice.

Overall, there is no other place that I will stay at when visiting Orlando with friends and family now that i have discovered this great resort.

We thank you so much for your recent stay, and your very kind review.

Be sure to check out our pool next time however. It's 82 degrees, the hot tub is there, we have a beautiful boardwalk out over the lake, and don't forget about our pool bar open weekends and seasonally.

It is so great to hear that you found the location convenient. We truly are located right in the middle of everything you could want to do in Orlando, but in a very relaxing area out of the main traffic.


Thank you again, and we hope to see you back soon.

We stayed here for 6 days in December. The location is perfect for all attractions and premium outlet and downtown disney etc,,, very quiet area and nice to relax at the end of a long park day.

The rooms were exactly as the pictures on the web depict the staff were very freindly and welcoming and the rooms cleaned everyday.

My only problem was finding on my return to the uk that they had charged me for a room I had prepaid for. I have called to dispute and the lady confirmed they will refund the money hopefully this will be dealt with quickly and will be a simple clerical error.

I would definately stay here again, we go to Orlando every year and so far this accomodation has been the one to tick all the boxes.

We stayed at Lake Eve mid December and everything was perfect. The 2 bedroom apartment was large and very comfortable with plenty of storage space for clothes, suitcases, etc. Whilst we didn't eat at the resort the staff were extremely friendly when we needed advice, and provided some great maps of the parks. The apartment has everything you need to be self sufficient, large fridge, microwave, hob and oven, washing machine and dryer. Lots of places to eat in the area - Longhorns, Red Lobster. There is a Cici Pizza takeaway a 5 minute drive away, and a shopping outlet just around the corner. We used the pool and hot tub on a couple of evenings after heavy days at the parks, hot tub was extremely hot!
I would highly recommend the resort, it's in a very quite area but there are bus stops right outside, and if you are driving Universal and Disney are 15 minutes away (in opposite directions).

We are so happy to hear that you got to take advantage of the area and enjoyed your stay.

As you said, there are several great dining options nearby, we have guests who enjoy walking to the outlets, and we are just 15 minutes away from nearly any of the major parks and attractions. And we are out of the way of heavy traffic areas as well.

We hope you have the chance to come back to Orlando, and thank you again for your comments!

We stayed at the Lake Eve Resort December 24, through December 28, 2012. We, stayed in a two bedroom suite that was very nice and comfortable. This was my family first time staying at the Resort. The only complaint that I had was the housekeeping. The first night we checked in there was trash left in the trash cans in the kitchen. Tuesday evening and Wednesday evening there was no wash clothes or towels left in the room. I had to called to the front desk to receive some more. Our last night the old bedding was left on the nightstand by the bed, and there was no wash clothes or towels left. I took the old bedding to the front desk with another complaint. My family enjoyed the visit, but the housekeeping could of been better for the amount of days and money that was spent.

Good Morning,

I truly appreciate your recent stay with us and am very happy that you enjoyed the resort, but am concerned about your experience with our housekeeping service. We want to make sure that every guest has everything they need and will certainly review your experience with our staff.

Our staff in the evenings of course is always able to accommodate you. If you need anything, a quick call from your room, and our guest service staff at the front desk will be glad to arrange for Housekeeping, Engineering, or even our Restaurant to get you whatever you might need.

Again though, we do strive to provide every guest with excellent service and thank you for your comments.

We hope to see you back during your next trip to Orlando!!!

Stayed there Christmas week 2012, with twelve family members, pool was warm staff was great and both of our suites were clean. With the full kitchens that were surprisingly well equipped we had family breakfast and dinner together every night. Located just far enough from the attractions to be quiet and out of most of the traffic. Only criticism is the advertised game room was gone and cleaning of the rooms lasted to late in the day, rooms well cleaned but sometimes not until after 6 pm

We are so happy to hear that you loved your stay.

We actually are very excited about several great new updates coming in 2013 that will include some fun new activities at the pool, additions to our fitness center, and a really exciting renovation to our onsite restaurant! We are also currently undergoing changes to our game room and regret that it was not available for you at the time, but look forward to having you back to experience all of the changes during your next stay!

Also, we would certainly welcome any requests to schedule an earlier housekeeping time. As we get busy, we do have to clean some rooms later than others, but if you prefer earlier service, please don't hesitate to let us know and our housekeeping team will be more than happy to accommodate you. Just call the front desk and let us know! :-)

Thank you again for your comments and we look forward to seeing you again.

We recently stayed at Lake Eve Resort for 6 nights. The two bedroom suite was very comfortable and spacious. Our stay was good however we did have neighbors upstairs who unfortunately liked to move the chairs around from 7p-midnight which was annoying but we were at least able to sleep through the night undisturbed.

You do get good value for the money. My only complaint was that housekeeping is very basic and they do not change your sheets at all during your stay unless you pay and we had issues with housekeeping not replacing our towels most days but we called the front desk and eventually did receive our towels.

Most importantly the place was bug free and comfortable.

I was put up at the Lake Eve Resort in early December for business. The check in was quick and easy, the room was clean and quite spacious. Had my stay been longer, the ample room in the kitchen and living area would have come in quite handy. I was ready to complain about the lack of hot water when I stupidly had it on the cold water side. Great views, friendly staff, nice price, I would defintely come back.

We thank you for your stay, and hope that you will be able to come back and enjoy a longer stay soon.

We love our business guests. In case you didn't know we are a very short drive from the convention area and within minutes of many of the area's business parks, along with Darden Restaurants, Lockheed Martin, The Golf Channel, and many others.

And of course we have a great new upgrade to our Free Wireless Internet, and are very convenient to both Orlando International Airport and Downtown Orlando.

Thank you again for your feedback. We look forward to seeing you again.
