“Great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2012

We stayed here for 10 days. The hotel was very nice and the room was clean. By mid week it was starting to look a bit grungy but when I asked about cleaning they said we didn't get any because we booked on Expedia. It was very strange. Any other self catered properties we've stayed at usually cleans after a week. Anyway, overall a fairly good experience. Nice to have laundry and a dishwasher in the unit. Great location for park access. Pools were great and there was even a toddler pool which was great! Beds were a bit uncomfortable as well.

Everything about this resort and the unit we shared with 2 friends was top notch from the full kitchen to the balcony to the washer/dryer in unit. Only the mattresses on the beds left something to be desired and that was everything. They were in desperate need of replacement and my back was thankful we only had to survive 4 nts. But that is the only drawback.
The location is SUPER convenient to the Disney parks and the lake views were lovely.

Room Tip: I do not know how they assign units but ask for a high floor and hope for the best. Two bed/two bat...

This was a great location and a very nice property that was close to the theme parks as well as restaurants and shopping. The shopping mall was less than 5 miles away and Walmart was conveniently within a couple of miles down the roadway. This was a quiet stay eventhough I had my 3 grandchildren and clearly there were other children on the premises. I loved the two bedroom suite's decor and the balcony overlooking Lake Bryan was breathtaking at sunset. The resort staff were very helpful especially Teanna. Thanks you were great!!! My family enjoyed staying here and would not hesitate to do so again. The only downside was that there was no WI-Fi available.

What a wonderful place! Within 5 minutes of all the Disney destinations, the property is clean, spacious (we have the Sunrise delux with two bedrooms, a sleeping alcove with bunk beds--just right for teens or children, and a large sitting area with a couch that also makes a sleeper), and complete. Each bedroom, and the living area has a television, the furniture is new, heavy, and appropriate. The staff goes out of its way to help in every way. They are friendly, knowledgeable, and accomodating. -- Sitting on the bacony in the early morning with a cup of coffee and watching the ducks and ospreys on Lake Bryan is a wonderful way to start the day....
The only need is for a little more parking. As more people discover this place, they will need more overflow parking.
All in all, we couldn't ask for more.

Room Tip: There is no restaurnt on property, but all units are fully equipped with modern kitchens....plenty o...

Wow what a destination! Not only is the property clean and beautiful with a picture perfect view of Lake Bryan, but the staff is what makes this place the best ever. Traveling to Las Vegas numerous times throughout the year I know service and friendly staff and this place has it. The staff is friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable. They have great tips on Disney and the entire surrounding area. They actually want to be a part of your vacation and memories. The very best part is they know you could have chosen anywhere and they make you glad you chose to stay there and they want you to come back and send as many people as you can to stay there. There is every comfort of home in the units and even miniature golf next door. Need to shop for anything, not a problem, there is everything you can imagine close by including Walgreens and Starbucks and grocery stores too. The staff will assist you with directions to where you need to go and give advice on restaraunts near by so trust me when I say there is no need to eat at Disney(except for a character meal which is so worth it) since it is all over priced junk. The view of the fireworks at night is incredible from the front balcony and the sunrise in the morning from the rear balcony. I will never stay on resort as long as this place has an open unit to stay in. The pool is fantastic and so are the walkways and gazeebos. From the staff to the amenities to the surrounding areas and views, this place is a 10 all the way around. I can not rave enough about the staff and encourage all to get the star treatment from this truly awesome place. The drive to Disney from here could not be shorter or easier since it's right off the highway and the signs are very clear to direct you to the parks(be sure to get a AAA parking pass to park up front in the diamond lot). I loved this place and you will too. Staff is the best!!!

Room Tip: Corner rooms are the best as they have front balconies, the middle units do not. Stay as high up as...

Stayed here for 2 nights with the family, 5 people. Hotel room was super clean, large enough to accommodate all 3 adults, 2 kids. Pool was amazing, lake view just beautiful! Hotel is in a great location too, near restaurants, shopping, etc. Additionally, the hotel is not far from the parks main entrance; especially if you have your own vehicle. Overall, the great amenities, friendly staff, and perfect location...this is the hotel to book!
