This was an above average timeshare very close to Disney and restaurants. Location was excellent and easy to find after being tired from the parks. Property is not new but well maintained and clean. We stayed on a ground floor unit between both heated pools so it was very very easy to get to a pool. Staff was very helpful and they had a good amount of activities for adults and kids throughout the week even in December. Pools were outside but heated properly so they were swimable in the winter with nice weather. They are both large and clean. Hot tub was very warm and relaxing but all but one jet was broken, however still peaceful. The unit was clean and well furnished, nice flat screen in living room. Resort also has DVD's to check out free and free sports equipment rental for miniature golf, volleyball, tennis and basketball. It's a relaxing place on those off days from Disney. Only complaint is the noise in the units. People above us were loud and floors are thin. People climbing the stairs to go to other units sounded like elephants, very loud but only bad in the mornings and evenings, and we didn't hear it when we in the park. Beds were very nice and I did sleep well with those dark curtains. There is some noise from the pool areas but not enough to bother anyone with the TV on. Yes, there are fancier resorts in the area that have nicer units and bigger pools and other amenities. For someone looking to be very close to Disney and only needs a few pools and activities, this is your place. I would good back, especially in the colder months as most resorts do not have heated pools and these were nice heated pools. In the summer, I may go to the fancier places for more time in the sun. Lastly, each unit has a screened in back porch to enjoy for reading or meals for those looking to stay outside or to watch the kids at the pool.

Room Tip: Try to be in Buildings 2 & 3 as they are close to the two heated pools. No elevators, just steps so plan accordingly.

We just spent a week at Blue Tree with our grandkids and their family. We rented a two bedroom unit and our daughter also rented a two bedroom unit. Our daughter and her family arrived before we did and when we got to the resort, our assigned unit was located several buildings away from them. However, the front desk was able to make a change to put us right next door to our daughter's family. Throughout the stay, all of our needs were met in a friendly and timely manner. The two bedroom/two bathroom units offered plenty of room. The kitchens were well appointed and the beds were comfortable. We made several trips to Winn-Dixie (a couple blocks away) and saved a ton of money by cooking our own meals. There are numerous restaurants within walking distance and the Disney Parks are only 15 minute drives. We took a day off from Disney and enjoyed one of the very nice swimming pools. Overall, it was one of our nicest vacations ever.

My granddaughter and I stayed here for a week in December. Very Clean and accommodating. Absolutely no complaints. The unit was stocked with everything you need in the kitchen. There was activities and crafts on site but we didn't join in as we were off site most of the time.

Room Tip: If you have problems walking or climbing stairs make sure you ask for a ground level floor. I didn't see any elevators.

We stayed there the week of Thanksgiving and the resort is perfect in every way. There is so much they offer like several pools, hot tub, mini golf, basketball, daily events too.

The two bedroom condo was just want we needed. Rooms are big, we had a full working kitchen and living area, oh and two bathrooms. Everything was clean and the staff was great. By the way the pools were over 80 degrees heated while we were there and outside at night got down to 40s. Made for nice night time swimming.

The resort is in a perfect location. 4 miles from Downtown Disney, 5 from Seaworld and 7 from Universal. There are a long list of good restaurants 0.75 mile up the road so you can walk there.

I recommend families to stay here and enjoy it.

We just got back from a 7-night stay. We got an incredible deal through a very well know website back in Sept. for the 7-night stay. I really can't say anything bad. The office staff was very friendly. The room was very clean and had that very nice clean smell. We didn't find any problems, bugs, etc... throughout our stay. We were in building 3 with a nice view of the pool. The resort had a lot of amenities such as shuffleboard, mini-golf, lighted basketball and tennis courts, etc... We did take advantage of the mini-golf and basketball which was nice. The only real complaint was the WiFi was terrible. Kept loosing connection and even when it was connected very poor signal. I would hardly hold this against them and would definitely stay here again!!!
