“Very good, for what it is.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2014

The Good: It's close to Disney, clean, very warm heated pool, large units (we had a 2 bedroom), well stocked (fully equipped kitchen even had a juicer), had granite counters, tasteful decor, The pool was never over-crowded and we were able to always get seats. We called ahead to make sure we had a unit near pools (the resort isn't very large so it doesn't matter) and we requested a unit with a washer and dryer. We also requested a high chair and a pack n play crib. All of our requests were met!

The So So: It has more of an apartment feel to it than a resort feel. This was not really a problem, but it's not like staying at a more upscale place like a Marriott or Sheridan timeshare. It's not gated, but there was a constant security presence and it seemed safe. The unit we stayed in had a screened in porch, but it faced the parking lot. Ceilings were kind of low in some spots: I'm 5'2" and I could touch the ceiling (with my hand) in the hallway.

Overall, I'd say that this property is well maintained and a fine place to stay. It was large, convenient, updated and very clean. But it isn't quite the same as staying at larger more posh resorts in the area.

Room Tip: request a washer and dryer if that's important to you.

We stayed here three years ago and had a lovely 2 bed deluxe apt, so booked again. Unfortunately I wasn't aware that not all apartments are the same as we we're put into a standard 2 bed, which was very small and dark in comparison to our spacious apt before. I tried to change but the reception said they had no other larger unites available. Considering we paid a lot more than time I was really disappointed.

That being said the room we are in is clean, has all of the appliances we need including washer/dryer and is fairly quiet considering we are close to the pool and car park. The location of Blue Tree is fabulous as we are so close to the parks.

We would stay again but only if we were assured we had the deluxe apartment as then we feel would would have had great value for money.

We have been home a week after spending 5 weeks at SPM Blue Tree Resort.After a great vacation it was hard to come back to the COLD and SNOW. We will stay 6 wks next year!. We have been going to Blue Tree for many years & can't say enough of staff,condos,grounds,pools,their activities program & their many amenities available for guests. The staff are so friendly & take pride in keeping the facilities and grounds so clean & do their very best to meet any request.There are lots of activities to do at the resort & Disney,Universal etc are minutes away. Restaurants,groceries & shopping are also close by.Our children and grandkids come every March break & already booked next year. My grandkids 8 & 6, pick staying & playing at condo over Disney.Thanks-Stephanie,Eric and Paul -activities dept. for having so many fun & learning things for them to do.Also fun things for adults too ! It is definitely our favorite winter vacation place.

Came in early 1 pm, had to wait until 3pm until my room was ready. asked for a late checkout, and they kinda fixed that for me. At the day of departure 10am some cleaning lady knocked on my door said I had to check out. (someone didn't make note of my late checkout.) I said late checkout to the cleaning lady, she called someone, then they called me up and said I had to renew my key and pay $50 for the late checkout (they didn't mention this at checkin).
Other than that the room was perfect, well equiped kitchen, bathroom, even a washing machine. bed nice. location perfect with many different places to eat around.
I put service at poor due to the late checkout problem.

First the good, good size unit with ultra fast internet. I asked for a refurbished room and was given a first floor room in block 7. It had recently been painted but was still an old, tired unit. The TV's were very old and small, tiles were broken on the floor of the bathroom, mouldy shower base but elsewhere was quite clean. Beds are comfortable but the pillows are very hard. Poor security, anyone can get on site as there is no gate security and one night we had 2 men outside, laying on the grass at 1-30am, drunk or whatever and there was no security patrolling asking them to leave. There is also a BBQ outside for communal use which means you can't sit on your balcony when it's being used as the smoke comes straight in. The units are however close to the attractions and are ok if you are not too bothered about having a luxurious apartment. We left 4 days early and moved to much better accommodation but as it was an exchange didn't ask for, or get offered, any refund. As we have stayed at many resorts in this area and Blue Tree is not as good as say Marriott or Sheraton, although it is an improvement over the Legacy resort nearby. I would not choose to stop here again but I am sure after reading other reviews many others enjoy their stay here.

I just did a four night stay at the Blue Tree. I'll start with the bad: Our room had a really strong, musty odor to it. I don't know if it was something they used to clean the room, mold, or what but it was very dank. I would call our room "pretty clean". I'll put it this way, they definitely have someone come in after the last guest and wipe down, vacuum, etc. However, my little kids socks were black after walking around on the carpet. The good: The room/kitchen were well appointed. The two bedroom was spacious. The mini golf was good. The outdoor grills were nice. The pools were clean and fine. I guess in the end, I would sum it up by saying you get what you pay for. We paid about $110/night after taxes for a two bedroom condo during Spring Break. There is nothing special and really nothing really over the top nice about this place. On the other hand there is nothing terrible about it either. It has a good location and is a good value. It is pretty much a La Quinta and I got what I paid for.

We stayed at SPM not Westgate. Beautiful property. Well maintained. The staff was friendly and accommodating. Our 2 br unit had everything we needed. The kitchen had granite counter tops and was well stocked. There was plenty of room for our family of four. Amazing attention to detail inside and out. We read reviews and did a fair amount of research on this property. Wifi was never a problem. We had a person with medical issues, reading there were not elevators, we requested a first floor room. Our tween wanted to swim. We requested a poolside room. The booking agent went over the available units and amenities and helped me decide on a unit that filled our needs. There are units with washer and dryers. However,laundry rooms are available within a short distance of the pools. The location is ideal. A couple of blocks from the turn to Disney World, close to Universal and shopping. It is a very quiet, beautifully landscaped property. There are also plenty of activities available on property. We had an amazing vacation and were grateful for our choice of SPM Blue Tree.

Room Tip: we stayed in bldg. 15 room 140.
