Bluegreen Fountains Resort
Ranked #131 of 340 Hotels in Orlando
Reviewed October 31, 2009

We just got back from staying at The Fountains in Orlando and we all agreed it was great! Our group consisted of mom, dad, a 9 year old and one additional guest. We were in building 2 on the first floor (2 bedroom), which happened to be a newer unit. The room was beautifully decorated and we had a screened patio that had a ceiling fan. There were a few things that bugged me about the room and they are: bathroom lighting too dim for applying makeup, pull out couch was as hard as a rock, the remote control for the main tv is a video game controller connected to a cord that is not long enough to reach the couch. One other thing I noticed is that our door peephole didn't work. It was just the casing and no glass so when you look in from the outside you can see everything.

When you pull into the resort it is so nicely manicured that you think you are pulling into an expensive high end resort. It was so pretty. The grounds had 1 very large pool with 2 slides (those close at 7), a small children's water play area and a hot tub. The other pool is at the clubhouse and it is an indoor/outdoor pool and they had 2 hot tubs. This pool was warmer and less crowded (not that the place was crowded when we went). I think there are 3 bars on the property. The one at the main pool closes at 10 or 11, but if they are not busy then they close sooner. The bar at the indoor pool is only open on the weekends, so if you really want a drink, you have to go upstairs into the clubhouse. They had happy hour from 5-7 on margaritas - yum!

I thought the location was great even though some people think it is too far away from everything. I found that you could be pretty much any place in about 10-15 minutes.

I based my decision to stay here on the positive reviews from the people here on tripadvisor and was glad I did.

was extremely impressed by the services of (--) . It truly was a home "away from home". The site gave us booking in fountain resort which provided us all the comforts of home coupled with beautiful window views of theme arks and sea world. Check-In was easy and any questions or concerns were readily addressed. I would definitely recommend this Fountain resort to any family and couples traveling to the area Orlando and will absolutely stay there again.

We had a great time here. All the employees were friendly and helpful. The two bedroom was very nice, washer/dryer and full kitchen. The bedrooms are spaced apart so it's nice for privacy. We stayed in building 2 which is the best for being close to everything. Another nice thing was we slept in a brand new bed, they were still in the process of replacing others in the building while we were there. Room was clean, no problems at all. The lights in the bathroom are very dim like others have said in their reviews, here's the trick though the longer you leave the light on the brighter it gets. I loved the pool, plenty of chairs and great atmosphere. Negative is if you like the late night stuff it's not here. Everything is shut down by 10pm.

We just got back from two weeks at the Fountains and we are ready to book again for next year... This was our 14th trip to Florida over the past 10 years and the Fountains was of a high standard and excellent value for money.... We had 3 seperate rooms as we went with frends and family and we booked only for the 1st week initially via Expedia and decided to stay for the second within the 1st day.... 4 star standards for sure ~ the quality easily equals the Hilton Grand Vacation Club & Sheraton Vistana Resort that we have stayed in previously. Good quality accomadations, loads of things going on around the complex for the children and good pools complete with kids area and slides. There is no hassle to look at joining the time-share facility and the whole complex is clean & very secure ~ they call you to confirm your Domino pizza delivery before they allow the guy on site..... One disapointment is that they should include the daily maid service ~ this costs $20 per visit... However they will bring you a full load of fresh towels on request and generally within 30 minutes... The later built blocks are the most modern ~ buildings 8& 10 although building 6 is also very good. I would recomend this resort to anyone....

when checking into this hotel we were told we would be staying in the "new building" when we arrived at our room it was apparant that it was not new, there was mold in the master bath and it also appeared to be a previous leak that they attempted to paint over. The dishes were also dirty in the suite there was food that was dripped all over the cabinets in the master and main bathrooms.When we arrived at the pool my son went to take a drink out of the water fountain and instead of cold water there was very hot water that could have easily burned a young childs mouth. They also closed the pool on are second day as well as the surronding area so my kids could not use the activites table. \When we did complain to the management they only tried to talk their way out of why the room was the way it was (after i had shown them pictures of the problems) we will never stay at the fountains or any bluegreen property again. We were very disappointed .

The Fountains resort is top notch. The grounds are impeccible, our room was in great shape, and the activities offered were beyond most other resorts. The location is in the quiet area of IDrive, a short drive to any theme park. Publix and Walgreen are less than a mile away, and we used the 7-11 convenience store often.

The drawbacks were few:
-Not many restaurants closeby. The onsite restaurants are overpublicized by the resort. Date night last Saturday was 3 guys blaring rap music with nobody in the bar. Hours were inconsistent too.
-The free shuttle to Disney is 3 departures in the morning to Epcot and 3 return trips in the evening from Epcot. Most do not tour Disney during the hours offered by the shuttle.
-Our washer/dryer turned all of our whites and their towels yellow. We did not use it afterward.

The newer pool area is the nicest area of it's type of any resort we have stayed at. It was never closed during our visit due to weather. The hours were 9 AM to 10 PM.

We have stayed at The Fountains twice now and our experience was outstanding. Once was a family trip and the other was a business trip with family included. It was perfectly located near Disney, Sea World, and the convention center.

The second trip we had lots of rain, but the resort had so many kids activities going on our kids never even complained about the weather. You honestly don't need the parks to have a great vacation at this hotel. And the service is outstanding!

As my 5 year old, home-body put it, "I love this place, because it's just like home!"

I would recommend it to anyone traveling to Orlando with small children. The spacious 2 bedroom condo was great, and saved us a ton of money having a kitchen right in our room.

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. Our two-bedroom villas are richly appointed with all the comforts of home—and then some. Most feature a screened balcony overlooking the lake, a fully equipped kitchen and a garden tub. The decor is elegant and tasteful with many focused on water, lake or pool views. ... more   less
