I choose this resort because of the package deal I received which included a $75 resort credit AND kids eat free. Check in was a breeze. I received a complementary upgraded room upon arrival. I asked that balloons & cupcakes be placed in the room upon our arrival in which we met the server in the room, but he sang happy birthday, so no complaints there. We did have to switch rooms 3 times. First due to them giving us a king size bed?? It was 2 adults & 2 kids, don’t know how they thought that was going to work. The second time the room had an odor to it. But I suppose 3's a charm because the third room was perfect. Overall the hotel is very swanky and upscale. The kids LOVED the lazy river and my 5 year old preferred that as opposed to going to Disney. The drive to Universal was about 15 minutes and to Disney about the same. It really isn’t that bad of a drive, but the hotel is in the middle of nowhere. So if you don’t get food on your way in, you are stuck eating the overpriced food at the hotel which to me was mediocre at best. The breakfast buffet was really good, but the other restaurants were not geared towards kids in my opinion. Overall a good stay. Clean hotel & very attentive staff.
