“Stress free... Wonderful experience!”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

We have just come back from from a 9 day trip to Orlando, and would definitely stay at Vista Cay again. Beautiful clean, spacious apartment.. Free wifi and phone use, tv in each room, laundry facilities - easiest check in/ out I have ever had in my life. It made our magical experience even better!

This was our second stay and I have to say that Destination America went out of there way this time. The Apartment was fantastic but I can't say the same for the rest of Vista Cay. We were on the Isles of Cay Common side and the pool area has gone down hill. No pool guy anymore so the toilets were dirty, the pool area was falling apart and some of the other visitors are just plain rude. We had groups who we were convinced were not staying there using the pool, smoking actually in the pool and drinking from glass bottles in the pool. I am not against anyone having fun but they were climbing up onto the jacuzzi ledge and then jumping down into the pool, not good when you have a little one in the water. The Vista Cay side was too busy for us and after complaing twice to the memebers in the club house we gave up. If you are in a millenium managed apartment they seemed more interested. The pool was very dirty and the jacuzzi never worked whilst we were there, don't think the pool was cleaned once in the 3 weeks we were there. After looking around and researching on here I think it will be a villa next time. The apartment was fab but the same can't be said for the Isles of cay common. Publix staff are wonderful, chinese and NYPD Pizza was just as nice as last time.

This was our second visit to Vista Cay and we wouldn't stay anywhere else. Yes you can pick your apartment. We booked ours through Golden holidays. Very helpful. Regarding pool towels we were told if you are a home owner you could borrow towels from the club house. Everything you need in the apartment. We choose a one overlooking the lake. Beautiful .Look forward to the next holiday in Florida and most definitely will be Vista Cay.

Room Tip: Only 4 floors high so we always go for top floor. Look on the website of Vista Cay and see plan of a...

A little late this review due to me having to work away but here goes:

A special family holiday in July / August was to say the least amazing. What a fantastic place Vista Cay is. When we arrived we were upgraded due to maintenance issues, no problem, the aparment we were moved into was stunning - The pictures in the brochure don't do the place justice. Our condo was a luxuory home from home - You wanted for nothing and everything was immaculate.

We were late on our first day due to getting lost, no issues to the staff and talk about looking after you - Sevice was second to none. The location of the site is brilliant, away from the hustle and bustle, but not too far away from the action - All attractions within easy reach and as for driving it was a breeze.

Coming out of the condo an onto the complex it overlooked a lake with different kinds of wildlife including some of Americas critters - So be careful form this point of view - Read the signs!

There was a pool area which was clean and big also came with a hot tub. There was a game area with a little arcade which was good for children if you fancied a day by the pool. Just to mention that not many people know there isn't a bar at this resort, however you are able to take your own alcohol down to the pool area as long as you drink your drinks in plastic cups which wasn't a problem. On site there was a fully equipped gym.

There is a publix near Vista Cay, but I would recommend you try the Pizza place that is situated near Publix - Brilliant entertainment from the staff and the locals - So friendly!

It is definitely a place I would recommend to couples families and single travellers. We really enjoyed are stay at the vista cay resort and we can't wait to return in 2013.

Oh and forgot to mention - Thanks America for some amazing weather, wonderful people, great food and a fantastic holiday.

This complex of condos are absolutely fantastic I have not stayed anywhere like it before, it's practically like having your own villa but on a secure location site.

The location of the vista cay is on universal blv which I personally find the best place to stay if you don't want all the hustle an bustle of international drive.(which by the way is 5 minutes away)

I could not speak more highly of our stay at the vista cay resort.
Our condo was 4 bedroom with open plan kitchen and living room which all in all had everything you need.

The master bedroom had a walk in wardrobe with a safe that was digital so you were able to put in your own pass code, the bedroom it's self was very spacious and had lots of draws to put your bikinis and t-shirts etc, the bed was huge and very comfortable and the master en suite bathroom was brilliant from a walk in shower to a huge bath, 2 double sinks and mirrors straight across also the toilet was behind another wall where you were able to get privacy.

Onto the second bedroom this again was very big and spacious no en suite in this one but it was only moments away, this again had a huge wardrobe and drawers to put you belongings in an a huge double bed which was very comfy.

The third and forth bedroom were both very similar, each had 2 twin beds with wardrobe an drawers fairly big.

All the rooms had flat screen tv's and alarm clocks.

The other bathroom was a fair size both a bath and a shower over it very convenient. Also came with a hair dryer and complimentary soap and hand wash.

The kitchen was my favourite had everything you could ever want and more, with all the latest appliances and huge Equipment. All pots pans cups plates knives electric cooker and grill microwave everything.

The living space was huge this had 2 massive couches and one chair which reclined backwards and was extremely comfortable. The couch also turned into another double bed. Just across from the living area was a beautiful table an chairs with all the trimmings, glasses napkins plates the works and seated up to 6.

There were beautiful paintings and pictures around the condo as well.

Finally we have the utility room which came with a washing machine a dryer an ironing board and of course an iron. This room was also fully equipped.

The condo also had a balcony with 2 chairs and 2 sun loungers.

Coming out of the condo an onto the complex it overlooked a lake with different kinds of wildlife from birds to rabbits and squirrels.

There was a pool area which was clean and big also came with a hot tub. There was a game area with a little arcade which was good for children if you fancied a day by the pool.
Just to mention that not many people know there isn't a bar at this resort, however you are able to take your own alcohol down to the pool area as long as you drink your drinks in plastic cups which wasn't a problem.

On site there was a fully equipped gym.

On the whole the place was very modern And is definitely a place I would recommend to couples families and single travellers.

We really enjoyed are stay at the vista cay resort and we can't wait to return in 2013.

We stayed in town home #100. Very quiet. The check-in process was speedy and the front desk staff very, very professional. The grounds are beautiful. The pool was not crowded, clean and easy to get to. There is a huge hot tub. The pool looks out over a lake. There is a pub-lix at the far end of the complex. We drove from our townhouse, it would be been way to far to walk with groceries. If you are going to Universal, this complex is perfect. We had a hard time finding our way back from the Universal parking lot, but only went out of our way about 10 minutes.

Our unit was very nice, one bedroom is downstairs with complete privacy and walkout patio. The second floor has the kitchen and living room. We were short a dining room chair and the living room could use additional seating. We had six adults and the love seat and couch only accommodates five people, leaving the 6th person to sit on the floor or in a dining room chair.

The third floor has two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The bedroom facing the street had two double beds, which made it nice for unrelated adults to share a room and bathroom. A little noisy, so if you are a light sleeper, opt for the rear bedrooms.

Trash is removed daily, just put it inside the container on the front porch. The driveway is VERY small, so if you have a van or suv, it will be very tight. You will have to maneuver around the hedge bushes to get in and out of the vehicle. Our minivan did not fit into the very small garage, but that did not present a problem.

We would definitely stay there again. This unit is a very high value for the expenditure. We split our rent between 6 adults and it equaled to $31.00 per person per day. I don't think you get any hotels for that price.
