I stayed here with my family - two adults, and 3 kids, ages 7, 9, and 12 - for a trip to Universal. As a lifetime Floridian, I've taken LOTS of Orlando trips over the years, and this had to be the most comfortable I have ever been on a vacation stay.

Check in was a breeze. The staff were courteous and accommodating, taking time to explain the amenities, and go over the property map as well as the pretty full activities calendar (some fun stuff for the kids for "down time.")

The accommodations were great - we were in the Deluxe 2BR; the master BR had a queen sized bed, and a great bathroom with an oversized jetted tub. The 2nd BR had two twin beds, and it's own TV, too (which the little ones LOVED). The 12 year old slept on the sleeper sofa in the living room, and she said it was actually quite comfortable. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed to make basic meals - pots, pans, plates, coffee maker, etc. The unit had a full sized washer and dryer, too. If you think you might do more than one load while you're there, bring your own detergent - there's a little box that will get you through one load.

There are several pools on the property, and they are all well maintained and comfortable. The mini golf was nothing spectacular, but it was a fun way to spend an hour with all of us. (Be sure to bring your ID to the desk when you go to play - they will need to hold your driver's license in exchange for your clubs and balls, as well as if you choose to play pool in the clubhouse).

Overall, this was a great trip. The resort offers shuttle service to the parks, but I cannot speak to how that was, as we opted to drive to have the flexibility to come and go as we pleased. BUT the resort is only about a 10-12 min drive from Universal, so it was VERY convenient. There are tons of stores and restaurants nearby, too. (As an aside, if you want to bring groceries, grab them somewhere OTHER than the grocery up the street - it's VERY expensive).

I own at Westgate Villa but I have not vacationed in Florida in a few years. On arrival the staff was prompt and friendly. The staff was also prompt and friendly when I made a request. I went for a swim daily at the conveniently located pools. My friend enjoyed her daily visit to the heated pool. The exercise room was usually occupied therefore I did not use the equipment. The map of the resort was helpful to get around. I suggested that the numbered pool locations shown on the map should also be numbered on the prominent signs at the pool. We enjoyed the food at the various restaurants we visited daily. This was a wonderful relaxing vacation.

A couple of friends and I stayed here for four days while vacationing and visiting a friend in the Florida area. The hotel is conveniently located near stores and attractions. Although we did not use the service, they offer shuttle service to theme parks. The exterior is very nice. I counted three swimming pools, we went to the fitness room, the staff was friendly, the room was clean. You have to call for new towels and bed linen when needed and take out your own trash everyday which wasn't a problem. The water sprinklers are turned on at night creating various puddles of water throughout the property which, may be the reason we all had a couple of mosquito bites. Overall, there are no complaints and the grounds are kept very clean and even though it is a fairly large facility it was very quiet at night.

Our family frequently visits the Orlando area and we could not recommend a better place. My wife has checked and believe me, your not going to find anything close to this for this price. Super clean, all amenities included (with all pots, pans, cutlery and everything in between... they even included soaps, dishwasher detergents, and a basket of kitchen supplies) ... and literally steps away from all the restaurants and Disneyworld! PERFECT for families , couples or anybody looking for a relaxing resort close enough to the attractions, but without sacrificing comfort or privacy of a top notch resort. There was 4 pools, all of which were amazing, heated, salt water and chlorine options ... all fully decked out with well maintained loungers, tables, chairs and umbrellas. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

Room Tip: Rooms towards the main entrance are newly renovated, but we have stayed in the older rooms before as well, and have no complaints! Both are equally maintained and super clean!
