Bluegreen Fountains Resort
Ranked #136 of 342 Hotels in Orlando
Reviewed April 6, 2013

I have reviewed the Fountains before and maintain my opinion that this is a great family resort half way between Disney and Universal. I just stayed in the Presidential suite and was quite disappointed. First and foremost, they added suites to the front side of building ten, which means the balcony faces International Drive and the parking lot. It is loud! And who wants to spend the money or points to look at a lot. Almost every room in the Fountain resort looks at a lake or the pool, which is quiet and beautiful. The screen porch is one of my favorite places to relax, but not at the Presidental Suite we were assigned to. Bluegreen either needs to charge less points or less money for road view. I did request to be moved, but it was spring break so I believe they were sold out. They told me they were building more suites but likely that means more on the parking lot side...The suite itself is 2 suites with the wall removed. The media room is just a 40" TV inside a regular hutch. Inspite of the pics showing a pool table, ours had a dart board instead. We had several maintenace isses like the ice maker never working and the furniture was a little beat up. The place was fine, it was clean and had the 3 bedrooms, but knowing how beautiful the regular units are, I would have been better buying 2 units for the same price/points and getting 2 kitchens and 4 bedrooms rather than a dart board and balcony facing the street. So that's what I will do in the future, and hope this review inspires others to do the same.

Room Tip: Presidential Suite not worth it, see my review on why. Get 2 rooms instead. Buildings 3 and 4 clos...

We stayed at The Fountains for spring break. This was our first time here and we loved it!!! Good location with shops, amusement parks, stores near by. Felt like vacation as soon as we pulled into resort. Easy check-in. Stayed in building 3 2nd floor near clubhouse. Beautiful room great view, next to heated indoor outdoor pool and lake. Both pools were well kept and nice we spent a lot of time swimming. Purchased or tickets for Disney at front desk.. Convenient :). If we called asked for more towels etc they were there in minutes with follow up courtesy call to make sure we received. The only negative is they have cool barn like doors (very neat) to master bedroom but they don't lock and whole masterbed/bath is open except toilet/shower area... Not a big deal but a locking door would be nice :) enjoyed our stay hated leaving to head back to Ohio :(

If they were trying to sell me on this place, they could start by cleaning it. My room had wrappers on the floor, stains on all the carpets, a dirty sock outside the door, a dirty pillow case, stains on the comforters. The stairwells needed washed and had garbage (candy wrappers) in them.

It looks like it could be a nice place if some one would take care of it

Stayed here March 2011, my girlfriend has a time share with them and WOW! this is no hotel, it is a condo. Enclosed balcony, living room/dining room, kitchen, master bedroom with beautiul ensuite, another bedroom and another full washroom. Swimming pool is huge it has an indoor/outdoor set up. Hot tubs, cold tubs drinks available at the inside part of pool that you can swim up to. The grounds are kept immaculate and so are the buildings. Will return forsure!

This is what a blue green ownership should be! We bought here in the spring of 2011 and our only complaint was the rude employees, well I think the management really heard the people. This trip was great, the pool is spectacular with tons of things for kids and adults! The rooms feel modern and clean.... Two really important things to a family. The resort is also very close to Walt Disney world which was very convenient as our oldest child ran the Disney half marathon.

My family and I just returned from a week at the Fountains resort. We are current Wyndham owners and we did attend the Blugreen timeshare presentation to get $100 off Universal Orlando tickets, but I have to admit that Wyndham is a better timeshare. They both have the points system but we receive better service with Wyndham. We stayed in a 2 bedroom condo in building 5, which they said was newly renovated. It was decent, but we weren't overly impressed. The resort pool is nice and we really enjoyed our view of Lake Eve from our balcony.
The only real Cons were that we called houskeeping 2 days in a row asking for new trash can liners and toilet paper, which they never delivered. I wasn't impressed with this since timeshares don't clean your rooms while you're staying in them and their only "service" responsibility is to provide new trash liners, toilet paper, etc. Also, the kitchen chairs are very noisy when people move them around so I would try getting a top floor room if possible.

Overall, this was a decent hotel and we would stay her again if we visit Orlando in the future.

Room Tip: If you want some quiet, ask for a room near the lake and not the pool. Also, ask for a top floor an...

We stayed at the Fountains from March 22 to March 29th. It is a "GREAT" family resort. Daily activites for family and evening entertainment - dueling pianos (awesome). The pool area is open with lots of space. Rooms were CLEAN, kitchen had essentials (enough to get by), the grills were cleaned EVERY morning.

Set within 54 acres surrounding the serene natural setting of Lake Eve, and located along popular International Drive, The Fountains offers everything you would expect from a world-class resort as well as the convenience of a central location. The Fountains has its own claim to fame- Bluegreen's Wakoola Springs. This 75,000-square-foot tropical oasis sets itself apart from an everyday pool with two water slides*, a zero-entry pool, interactive water fountains, two hot tubs. Cross over the two bridges on the campus and head over to one of two fire circles for evening stargazing and relaxation. With so many on-site amenities for both adults and kids, not to mention the hundreds of attractions in and around Orlando, you'll want to plan an extended stay to fit it all in.
