As a time share owner, I have frequently swapped my week at my home resort for a destination week. Unlike other vacationers, I notice the little things about these properties, in particular the attention to maintenance as it guides my future decisions about staying in this property again. Although this facility is an older one and may not have the flash of some more recently built, the attention to upkeep was very obvious – they were even replacing the terra cotta roof on building 3. My unit had fresh paint and updated appointments with everything I needed. We enjoyed use of the pools and the laundry facilities. We also exercised by running the sidewalks that loop from in front of the facility, going down Lake Street to Palm Avenue back up to Apopka and returning to the Blue Tree for a two mile loop. Numerous restaurants and a Walgreens were within easy walking distance.

This facility was a good swap and offered everything that I look for in a timeshare. My best recommendation is that we would eagerly return.

Room Tip: Upper floors are quieter. Excellent choice for families.

This is a friends timeshare we used and it was great for what we needed. Our children and grandchildren stayed in Disney for 3 nights and at the condo with us the rest of the week. The location to Disney made it easy for my husband and I to just drive over and meet them to enjoy the day.

The only complaint and the reason for only 3 stars was the air conditioning, it is set not to turn on if the outside temperature is 70 degrees or less. When I called the front desk we were informed that it is only buildings 10 and 15 that do this and there is nothing that can be done. Our unit would smell musty and be damp during this time. But the worst was sleeping, we tried to open the windows but, with the window next to the parking lot people coming and going at all hours of the night no one got a lot of sleep including the 2 year old.

We found the outside accommodations to be clean and well maintained. The gas grill by the pool was a great idea and we had a great evening swimming and having a picnic.

Thank you for staying at SPM Blue Tree Resort and taking the time to write a review. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed our close proximity to Disney and the surrounding shopping and restaurants. It's great you used and enjoyed the gas BBQ grill. Our guest love them so much that we are adding two more. I'm sorry to hear you had an AC concern. Two of our buildings work on a chiller system which means the AC will not turn on until its atleast 56 degrees. Hopefully we will see you on your next visit.

My husband and I and my brother and sister-inlaw stayed at Blue Tree Nov. 24 through Dec.1, 2012. My family has stayed there many times in the past and once gain we had a fabulous time. We had two beautiful and clean 2-bedroom, 2-bath condos. The people at the resort are always friendly and helpful and I always request the same building we've stayed in for years and they always accomodate us. The condos have been recently updated and the resort always tries to keep improving for there guests. The grounds and pools are well kept and clean and the resort is very close to Disney as well as many resturants and bars. We all had a wonderful time and will definitley stay there again.

We stayed their Nov 13 until 21,2012 and it was terrible,It was a cold week (which was not the Resorts fault) and no heat when you turned the thermostate up..nothing happened, very run down, very small 1 bedroom was more like two hotel rooms put together,bedding was well worn, when we read the reviews we seen where people had said that it was renovated and updated don't stay at Westgate so that is why we stayed at Blue Tree.... we stayed in building 18 (last building their) bottom floor room 1 poolside which was the only bonus, no staff to help you and if you had a question the first thing they would say "you are staying at Westgate Blue Tree," no SPM Blue Tree,it was very run down,I would never stay in a Westgate or SPM again, we normally stayed at Polynesian Isle or Cypress point Grand Villas resort.., I lost more money in the vending machines and was told I would be better off to go across the street to Walgreens to buy water ......long walk for water unless you wanted to drive..never again....will stay at ones we know.....Anthony on the front desk was our only help...he probably has left their by now....

Thank you for staying at SPM Blue Tree Resort and taking the time to let us know about your stay with us. I am dismayed that your stay was less that satisfactory as this is not the norm for us. I have passed on your comments to all our executive team as we take every guest experience very seriously. We have just recently completely renovated two of our 1 bedroom buildings and they are spectacular. We would love you to return and experience our new 1 bedroom units.

We visit Blue Tree in November where once again we found the resort to be of the same high standard as last year. It is always a joy to see the same staff each visit and to find a warm welcome on our arrival.
This must be one of the best resorts in the area with nice grounds,pools and access to the main parks close at hand.
The golf courses are near at hand and we have never encountered a problem with tee times.
All in all a great place for young and old to visit
