We were at the facility for two weeks. Unfortunately we could get only get a 2 bedrm for the first week.2 bedroom is wonderful. spacious and beautiful. I would recommend it to everyone. Every 1 bedrm I have ever stayed in is suitable for 4 adults, not this one. The 1 bedroom is hideous. It is miniscule in size. there is no access to bathrm except thru bedrm. it is suitable for only 2 adults with little luggage. We were 3 adults and were miserable. The refrig. kept popping open all night. The a/c was so loud and forceful that you could not sit at eating table with it on. There is a $6.75 per night amenities fee at the resort, whether you want to use them or not. The one bedroom is a lock-off from a larger unit. You can barely get into the door for the sofa. The bedroom has a king-size bed, however you can barely walk by it to get in the bathroom. The bathroom is very large--it would have been a much better idea to take some of the bath space and make another access into the bath. If anyone is in the bedroom you cannot get to the bathroom. there is no washer/dryer in the one bedrm units. However in their favor they have a laundry on the second floor and there is no charge for the use of it. The one bedroom is very dark. No window in living area at all. Small balcony off bedroom, but only accessible walking to the far side of the bed. Do not under any circumstances take a one bedroom if you are more than two people. You would hate it even with a small child.

Room Tip: Be sure you take only a two or three bedroom unit. One bedroom is dark. The fourth floor is wonde...

We will never stay in another high rise hotel in Orlando again! We booked the 2 bedroom unit and it was huge! Full kitchen, dining room, living room, screened balcony with table for 4, a master suite with king bed, whirlpool tub and separate shower room, and a second bathroom. Plus tons of activities and amenities on site!

Resort was clean enough, rooms nicely decorated, kitchen and bathrooms well equipped, nice quiet and high quality sleep, even thou we had very noisy neighbors next to our apartment, even at 3am they ware screaming, I guess walls are thick enough that we had a good sleep. There are no free transportation to the parks as advertised, it is offered at $20 per person. Internet is not free, you have to pay for it ($10 a day). Pool area was nice, kids had a lot of fun. It is close to everything, Magic Kingdom is about 15 min drive, half an hour to Universal and 10 min to Walmart if you like to buy something. I would recommend this place to my friends and anybody who asks, it's firm 4+ star for me! will come back to stay again.

These are condos, rather than a traditional hotel, but there was virtually no timeshare pitch, and everything turned out very nicely. My room was one of the 'B' numbered rooms in the Parrot Cay building. It had a fairly cramped living/dining/kitchen room at the front, with small television, and a sleeper-sofa that folded out to a Queen-sized bed that was okay but rather thin and springy ( as in not at all firm) mattress. The kitchen had a range/oven, full-sized refrigerator, sink and microwave. The fairly large bathroom had a closet, two sinks, tub and shower and toilet. The bedroom had one king bed, dresser, tv, and a small balcony that looked out on the parking lot. The grounds had one smaller "Turtle" pool, a miniature/putt-putt golf course, a small, but very convenient deli/convenience shop, kids club, and the larger, attractive "Whale" pool. The resort had a variety of activities, including a movie night and water aerobics. The adjoining 'A' suite had two bedrooms, a larger balcony, and everything else that was in the B, except much, much roomier, and a dishwasher, plus washer and dryer and a second bathroom. The location was extremely convenient. Just a couple of minutes from I-4, about a block from a Winn-Dixie grocery store, plenty of restaurants, and about 8-10 minutes from the Orange County Convention Center, Downtown Disney, and International Drive., with the theme parks, just a tiny bit further. We had a group deal that was hard to beat, so yes, I would strongly consider it again for a family trip, but would want the 'A' suite, for sure.
Larger families could take both the A and the adjoining B suite, accessed by a shared interior door. Fresh towels were provided on the fourth day, but the property does not provide a daily maid service, which I did not find to be a problem.

Room Tip: Request a poolside room for a view, if that matters to you. The B suites are much roomier than the A...

Found a deal on Expedia. This is great for a family, two bedrooms, two bathrooms, pullout couch, dining room, washer and dryer with full kitchen. This is only 5 minutes to Disney ans 15 to Universal. The one set back no room service. Three great pools and a deli with pizza, gifts anything a convenient store would have for a reasonable price. Would stay again.

This is in the ideal location for park lovers; less than 10 minutes from Sea World, Universal & Downtown Disney. Plenty restaurants & wee shops within walking distance & very generous sized apartments
