We stayed at this hotel, as a family of 4, in Nov. 2011 and are planning another trip back this November. The rates are clearly very reasonable. We were attracted the the full kitchen and plenty of lounge space as well as the separate bedrooms-- we had a 2 year old at the time who was a very poor sleeper and my husband's snoring can be kind of loud. I especially LOVED the washer and drier option.

I would have given it 5 stars aside from the following: the pool was not heated and during a November stay, this can be essential and there was no cleaning service-- which wasn't a huge deal but during a 6 day stay, it would have been nice to have towels refreshed, toilet paper replenished, etc. Not a huge deal but it is worth mentioning.

Room Tip: We had a pirate's pool view, which was nice, except it meant my children wanted to go to the poo...

stayed for 7 nights in march and enjoyed every minute! We were in main building and found it convenient to pool & restaurants. The front desk staff, especially trish were very helpful and assisted us with any minor needs. The parking was a challenge one night, but everything else was great. We will return!

After a terrible experience at a nearby hotel, our group of five ended up here. The room was very clean and accommodating. The bathrooms were spacious. Shower had small bits of mold which is upsetting because all other areas were so well maintained. Drive to the park was less than 10 minutes. We were Rey close to the outlets as well. Can't wait to return. I already booked our next trip.

We stayed in building 5, on the 15th floor, 3 bedroom unit. It was perfect for the 7 of us. The washer and dryer was a nice addition. The couch was worn (very worn) Bed in master bedroom was hard, could be replaced. Other furnishings were good.The master suite had a very large shower, and nice Jacuzzi tub.

We stayed for 8 nights and were only given one single use detergent for the washer. Considering we washed and dried the towels provided daily - one single use detergent did not cut it! Only 2 rolls of toilet paper (one on roll and other in cupboard) for both bathrooms. I would have liked to see enough toiletries and detergent provided for the stay. The onsite store was very expensive. A linen change would have also been nice. The stay was very expensive and those smaller items should be included.

We were on the 15th floor - not for the faint of heart!

Pool and pool area were very well maintained. Frankie Farrells Pub had excellent fish and chips!

Overall, great spot - close to everything, parks, shopping, walmart, lots of parking and friendly staff. etc. etc.

We would definitely stay here again. (maybe on a lower floor ! :) )

We got a really big room - 3 bedroom, 3 bath suite - for a really reasonable rate. The pool was so-so and located kind of far from our room. We did not realize upon booking that there are multiple buildings. Ours was not adjacent to the pool. The spacious rooms were dated, worn, and not very clean. We had a lot of space and plenty of bathrooms for our large family, but we didn't want to spend much time in the room. It was fine. We came to Orlando to do other things, and we had plenty of room to lay our heads at the end of the day. We saved a lot of money by staying here, but probably won't be back.

We booked this via Virgin Holidays and at the point of booker were told this was very popular.
We had been fortunate enough in the past to be able to stay in a Disney Hotel but because of the size of the group we decided on two 2 bedroom apartments.
From the airport it was easy to find and there was plenty of parking. Reception block was set in the middle of the 5 blocks so no one was very far it, also the pub restaurant and the convenience store were just a couple of minutes walk. The Irish themed bar and restaurant was excellent by the way and very friendly indeed. Price was very reasonable and food top notch. There is also a PIzza Hut in the convenience store which deliver to your room. In fact you can have a full meal delivered from the restaurant if you wanted.
One word of warning though. Do not order food from the flyers that are constantly slipped under the door. We made the mistake of ordering and the food was dire, and one of us were ill for 3 days. I complained at reception about the food and they were very apologetic but they were unofficial and they are a problem. They are not part of the hotel service but you assume they are.
Ii said that it might be an idea to warn guests of this problem but not sure if they will take it on board although they did say we were lucky that only one of us were taken bad.
The apartments were absolutely amazing and much bigger than I expected. They were spotlessly clean and well maintained. I would recommend this place to anyone.
There is a themed swimming pool that the kids loved, plenty of sun beds and chairs and a bar area that also sells good quality snacks including breakfast.
The position of the hotel was perfect for all the parks and the travelling time to and from Disney etc was a lot less than I expected.
I cannot think of anything I was unhappy about but if I was to try really hard to find fault then the key cards failed quite a few times and having to get new ones was a little frustrating but they did say that the problem was being worked on. It was just our block.

Room Tip: Avoid the room next to the waste disposal area. The door slams.
