“spring break”
Reviewed May 1, 2012

Very nice place to stay. 4 swimming pools , 2 hot tubs, grilling areas, tennis, basketball, shuffle board, mini put golf, pool table, ping pong table, washer and dryers in some rooms otherwise a common laundry mat area,(free washer and dryer if it is in your room otherwise it costs money ). plenty of restaraunts in walking distance from property as well as a grocery store and liquor store one block away. 5 minutes away from downtown Disney , universal studios, wetnwild water park, sea world and disney parks. there are free shuttles to and from all the parks from the resort . if you want to stay late at any of the parks the shuttles don't go late and you will need to drive or get picked up by other means.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a washer and dryer in it if you are traveling with kids. Most rooms are close to...

The best thing about the Blue Tree is its location. It is very close to Disney, a few junctions from Seaworld/International Drive and close to the premium outlet shops. The accommodation itself is just OK. We spent a week there and we are accustomed to high-service timeshare resorts. Sadly, this does not rate highly enough for us in terms of services or facilities. There is a nice main pool with water features for children and they do DVD rentals on site. So, unless you plan to be out most of the time (as we were), you will struggle to do much in this resort.

We found the furniture and furnishings a bit past their "sell-by" date - with a feeling of an upgraded motel "room" rather than timeshare accommodation. Luckily, we used it as a base to explore Orlando - so it was fine for that. You can be in Downtown Disney in less than 5 minutes which was also quite nice. Shopping tip: If the Premium Outlet is too busy (as tends to be the case most of the time!), there is another outlet mall on Vineland Road (SR 535 road) which has a number of decent shops also - including Tommy, GAP and others. It is usually much quieter as many tourists do not drive that far.

All in all, it is OK for a week (as long as you know what you are getting) but we will not be staying here again as there are just too many other nice timeshare properties in Orlando.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are glad you like the great location and the close proximity of the theme parks and shopping. From your review it is hard to tell if you stayed at the SPM Blue Tree side or with Westgate. The SPM Blue Tree side has undergone a multimillion dollar unit renovation with all new rooms. On property we do have four pools, a fitness center, game room, basketball court, tennis court, shuffleboard, mini golf and a full time activities department. When you return to Orlando please stay in one of the SPM Blue Tree Resort's new units.

Close to Disney and Sea World parks. This is a nice place to stay with family. The room is large, huge actually, there is a living room with tv, sofa, etc... A dining room with a round table for 4, a good kitchen where you can cook anything, a large refrigerator... It's like an apartment condo. There is a swimming pool, regular and heated. Jacuzzi, gym - where I went every morning... Parking is easy... I recommend.

Booked my reservation thru orbit for the weekend of 4/20-22. 2 days later, called the resort to verify my reservation and ask about senior rates. Spoke to a young lady who stated it would be cheaper to keep it at the rate of $140 for 2 nights I informed her my rate was $180 for 2 nights not $140. She insisted and assured me it was $140. Arrived at the resort Friday evening, and spoke to a supervisor there after requesting the cost for 2 nights there and was told they could not provide me with that info. I explained the situation to the supervisor and even gave him the young lady's name in which I spoke with and he stated she should not have done that. The only reason for not wanting to show me the cost for 2 nights that I can think of is because it indeed show the cost for $140.00. Nevertheless, he tried back peddling trying to clean it up but did not honored the quote that was given to me. Instead he gave a useless coupon for five dollars to purchase a magic kingdom ticket there at the resort. I asked him if I could purchase a one day ticket and he stated yes but you have to buy it here. Well, that too was untrue, they don't sell one day tickets there. you have to purchase them at Magic Kingdom., I found that out the next day. I found some of the staff there very unproffessional. I had gone to the front desk to find out some information about the shuttle and three staff members were there and two of the three staff members where standing there very deep into their personal conversation, turned around looked at me and totally ignored me. The third staff member came up to me and attended me. He gave me the shuttle info and I requested for a late checkout of 11am instead of 10am. Mind you, I had requested a late checkout when I first called the resort to confirm my reservation and when I checked in. They both stated they would make a notation. Guess what, no notation was made. After being at magic kingdom for 6 hrs, my husband and I were tired and wanted to return to our room. Although, we new that the next shuttle was not scheduled to arrive for another 3 1/2hrs we decided to call the resort and see if they would extend some wonderful customer service which I have not had the pleasure of encountering. Instead, what I did encountered over the phone was the female staff member who was deep in conversation earlier that morning and she stated to me in a loud obnoxious tone " Oh no, the shuttle service doesn't do nothin for nobody or go out of the way for nobody". At this point I was aggravated and responded "I see, and neither do you. I then hung up and waited out the 3 1/2 hrs. The following day we were going to have breakfast before checking out and stopped at the front desk to confirm a notation was made about a late check out. The same gentleman that I spoke to the day before was there and he said I will inform housekeeping. Returned from breakfast and room key had been deactivated. Now I was fuming, my husband went to front desk this time and was told that the key automatically deactivates. It would had been nice if someone had informed us. The room were okay, nothing to brag about, the customer service was awful and no I would not stay here again or recommend this resort. I saw better customer service at Perkins when we went to breakfast before checking out and it was jammed pack and very busy. I actually saw the receponist take out the yellow pages to help a customer. I did not see anyone at the bluetree resort go out of their way for anyone.

Room Tip: Some room provide elvator to go upstairs and some don't.

Thank you for staying with us at SPM Blue Tree Resort and taking the time to give us your feedback. We appreciate your comments and take them very seriously. Unfortunately when you book through a third party website like Orbitz you prepay your stay with them before you get to the resort. Once you arrive we cannot change anything with the reservation, as it has been prepaid to Orbitz already. I'm sorry that nobody took the time to explain that to you. The appropriate manager has been informed of you comments regarding your difficulties with late checkout requests and staff responsiveness. Our shuttle is an outside company and not operated by the resort, so we change the schedule. Again , i apologise this was not explained to you. Again thank you for your valuable feedback without this we cannot improve.

We recently had a two week stay in this resort and I can find few negatives to complain about. On arrival the check in was swift with clear directions on how to find the accomodation block. The villa was large, well equipped, comfortable and more importantly spotlessly clean.
The resort is ideally situated for the major attractions in Orlando with plenty of shops and restaurants within walking distance. The pool was right outside the apartment, which was well maintained and a laundry faciltiy within the block at a reasonable price (detergent was provided in the villa along with washing up liquid, dishwasher detergent & shower gels).
Only minor negatives were the main bed could do with being a little larger and milk/coffee ought to be provided so those holidaymakers who have travelled for long distances and arrive late at night can at least have a welcoming drink.
Overall well impressed with the resort, facilities and staff and would certainly recommend the resort for anyone who wants comfortable accommodation, reasonably priced close to all the attractions.
