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.
