This is an exception lodging facility. The staff is amazing and very friendly, informative and eager to help. The front desk staff is amazing, they are courteous and quick. The maintenance staff, especially Alberto, who is always there to help, to fix anything and even give advice about the area, all you have to do is ask any of the staff for that matter. The facility is beautiful; the rooms are clean and modern. Using the kitchen to make dinners or breakfast was great, a money saver. They even have a gas grill to barbeque on. They have activities for kids and adults alike. Very close to outlets- 2 different ones within 5 miles and downtown Disney is around corner practically. Close to parks, access to I-4. Highly, highly recommend anytime you visit Orlando area.

Room Tip: Rooms facing pools will be a little noisier during summertime.

Thank you for reviewing SPM Blue Tree Resort and staying with us. It's always great to hear that our staff were both informative and eager to help and that you loved our extensive kitchen in your unit. The gas grills have been a major hit and we are now installing another gas grill and picnic area for our owners and guests to enjoy, along with another shuffleboard court.We are glad you like our convenient location. We hope to see you on your next visit.

We stayed here at the end of November as a last minute trip booked through RCI. We have stayed at resorts nearby so we were familiar with the area. It is very convenient to get to Disney, Universal, the outlets, and restaurants. I enjoy staying in this area for that fact alone.

We stayed in a two bedroom unit in building three. Our unit had a washer and dryer and overlooked one of the pools. Overall the unit was nice but several factors made me rate my experience there as average. The unit seems to have been refurbished in the past several years however, items such as the bathtub, shower, and toilet are chipped and worn and were obviously not replaced. The kitchen cabinet had a broken knob that came off every time you opened the cabinet, it wasn't a matter of just screwing it back in, it was just broken and needs to be replaced. The dishwasher was not fully functional, some buttons didn't work and it was difficult to start. The floor underneath the furniture was dirty. The treadmills in the fitness center were also not fully functional. None of these things ruined our vacation by any means but it was not in the condition that I would say is very good.

On the brighter side the staff was very courteous and friendly. We were quickly checked in and out. The request for a unit with a washer and dryer that I made before we arrived was provided which made life easier. The heated pool is very well heated and nice.

Blue Tree Resort is nice place to stay, especially as a crash pad between visiting the parks. It was quiet the week we were there, but our neighbors upstairs were a bit loud walking around a few mornings. People don't realize that a lot of these places were built with hollowcore concrete slabs so the stomping around in plastic princess heels is heard like you're in the same room. We also were on the end of the building where they have the resorts laundry facility which made mornings a little loud with the machines and lots of lint balls rolling around and into our unit.

Overall I would recommend this to others and would stay here again, though it probably would not be my first choice.

Room Tip: Try to stay on a top floor so you don't have to risk hearing loud people staying above you.

We have stayed here twice and would gladly stay again. Clean, friendly, and very close to all the attractions and restaurants. We just got back after staying a week and this time we brought the 2 grandkids. We needed a crib and one was brought right away and it came in so handy!

Myself and 3 others stayed at this resort from Nov 10-17. Had a fast and easy check in. There was a security guard, Barry, who was in the lobby. He gave us great advice on the area like places to go and directions on getting around. He was quick to get us to our room and would not even take a tip!
We had a 2 bedroom suite. The place was very clean and not an item out of place. The kitchen area was excellent and we took advantage of it. Housekeeping was in every day and gave us clean towels, made the beds and even dis the few dishes we had around.
We spent a couple of evenings in the pool to relax after many hours of shopping. Most times we were aone.
The resort was very quiet for those of us who don't have kids as this understandably often occurs.
Cannot say enough good about the staff and the resort. Had a great stay and will definately stay again. Close to shopping and restaurants.
Only negative thing I can say was that we recieved a phone call from a lady called Millie? who told us we needed to come to the front desk immediately to sign a maintenance form. Turns out she was up to no good with timeshares. She made it sound very urgent and my friends went to see what was going on. She was very rude and condescending to say the least. At one point when one of the girls with me was talking to her she walked away. After they got back to the room Millie and another guy were down below our balcony looking uop at us. Not sure what her game was but her behavior was not appreciated and unlike any other we experienced during her stay.

Thank you for staying at Blue Tree Resort. From your comments it appears you stayed with Westgate Blue Tree, as SPM Blue Tree does not call guests in order to sell them timeshare. SPM Blue Tree is a sold out resort and we are here to make your stay are memorable as possible.

Just got home from Blue Tree. Stayed in a delux 2-br, 2-bath unit in Building #3 from 11/02/12-11/10/12. Beautiful modern condo type suit with jacuzzi tub in the MBR and full size washer and dryer. We loved to sit on the screened porch over looking one of the pools while having our coffee in the morning before heading out. The first three (3) days there (Fri., Sat and Sun) we stayed right at the resort. The pools (3-heated and 1-not heated) and grounds are perfectly maintained. The pools each have very nice restroom facilities so you don't have to go back to your room wet. We also enjoyed the two (2) outdoor Hot Tubs, basketball and tennis. Since our four (4) children are older now they did not use the game room or playground area. There is also a fitness room but we did not use it since walking through all the parks and swimming was plenty of exercise LOL. Over the past eighteen (18) years we have stayed at Blue Tree at least ten (10) times and it is always great, safe, clean and secure. A very nice quiet place yet close to everything. If you are looking to be in Lake Buena Vista close to Disney and all the action I would say give Blue Tree a try. I really think you will enjoy the resort and locational amenities while also enjoying the peace and quiet Blue Tree offers. Stay with the original Blue Tree and NOT the Westgate Blue Tree which owns a couple of the buildings. The Westgate Blue Tree buildings are not updated and maintained like the original Blue Tree owners buildings are from what I understand. Have fun.
