The vista cay was absolutely fantastic, very helpful staff and a great pool area. The vista cay is in a prime location. Very close to the supermarket publix and NYPD pizza. It is very near to international drive and is minutes (by car) to most theme parks and water parksincluding both universals , all the disneys ,sea world ,aquatica and Discovery Cove. A 7 minute drive from the vista cay will take you to downtown disney which features many great restaurants and shops. Near the resort of vista cay there are many super restaurants, my personal favourites are Charlie's steakhouse ,olive garden and possibly my favourite of the three the blues house which is in downtown disney along with a LEGO shop , a dinosaur creator store and a huge disney store.
The pool area in vista cay is one of the best maintained I have ever been too, I previously came to Florida in 2009 and the pool has stayed in great condition ever since ,as well as being very clean ,it is also a great size. Another fantastic thing is it is open until very late in the night for a quick dip. Also for a hot dip you can hop into the jacuzzi which is always roasting hot. Also in the vista cay is a gym , a games room and a movie theatre. The gym is a great feature of the vista cay and it too is very clean and well maintained. The games room is a great place for children in the resort and is a great way to pass time and have fun.
The only one problem about the vista cay is the size of the resort and if you are located far away from the pool area it can be at the very least a 5-10 minuite walk although if you have rented a vehicle you could load it with your stuff for the day by the pool and drive over to the car park situated very close to the pool.

Well I stayed in vista cay and was told it was 5min from international drive by the tavel agent,WRONG,u have to walk for at least 45min through the path in the grounds of the hotel with alligators,snakes and other wildlife..my mum was in a wheelchair so we asked to be moved into another hotel,as this was unacceptable... as the wheelchair was sinking in the mud on the path...thomas cook signiture said they would,then they wouldn't..and left us to just get on with it,they also knew we didn't drive so didn't give a monkeys and didn't even come and see us...u have to request a reps visit..or get a welcome pack from the front desk which they don't bother leaving..we will never use this agent again...if anyone is offered vista cay by them and u don't drive please beware ur nowhere from anywhere really and it is very isolating and u really need taxis everywhere which turns out expensive..the hotel condo is lovely inside and apart from the desk lady by the name of brenda the other staff arnt very helpful..never again will I use thomas cook...once your money is handed over..your no longer valuable to them.

We are in receipt of this review; we have researched information on this situation, as our guests are always our top priority.
We have contacted the company that you booked your reservation with, as they only market this resort with a car hire, and because the resort is spread out and even though there are many restaurants and shopping within couple of miles of the resort, you still need a car as this guest was advised prior to booking. The company informed us that this guest declined a car hire for some reason after been advised that a car was important for their stay, however, they still declined. We know for a fact that this company stresses the fact that car hire is critical.
Vista Cay Resort is located lake front on Lake Cay, with paved paths everywhere including a jogging trail by the lake; tropical climates as the one found in Florida, will create environments where is possible to see tropical wildlife from time to time. However as any other resort, we do have environmental pest control should it be necessary, always with the guest in mind. We understand that many guest coming from the UK and other countries are not use to see this, but this is very normal in the tropics.
As far as walking 45 minutes, we are not sure, what this guest means, as we are couple of miles from International Drive, Dining Shopping and entertainment: 1.6 miles to Sea World, 3 Miles to Universal Studios and 0.5 miles to the Convention Center and 2 miles to the Pointe Orlando Dining and Entertainment Complex

We spent a fortnight in a two bedroom, two bathroom condo in Vista Cay. Property was excellent, with two full sized bedrooms, two bathrooms , a fully equiped kitchen and a washer drier. Location was excellent, right in the centre of all the attractions and shops and easily accessible with lots of parking for our hired car. Great pool area which was never too busy with lots of loungers. Staff were excellent and I would certainly stay here again anytime in Orlando

We enjoyed our stay last year so much we decided to stay again this year. That is really saying something in an area with as many lodging choices as Orlando. Both stays were in premium lakeview condos...which are amazing large, immaculately clean, and elegantly decorated. The premium condos have very comfortable furniture and bedding and are simply huge with plently of kitchen, bathroom, and storage space. The laundry rooms are even quite large. The location is great with everything easily accessible...yet the area itself is peaceful and uncrowded. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The pool area is clean and relaxing. A Publix is next door within walking distance (though I would't recommend walking in August). The NYPD pizza place in the Publix plaza is yummy. There is also a Walgreens in easy walking distance. It would be hard to imagine staying anywhere else.

What can I say... this place is in the best location for everything as long as you have a car, Public supermarket on the doorstep as well. Located just off Idrive but you are able to use the less busy Universal Boulevard to get to Wet & Wild and Universal....
Vista Cay is a gated community and we were lucky enough in 2012 to be upgraded to a 3 storey town house that had everything you could wish for. Pool, gym and reception are spotless as are the grounds...couldn't ask for more. However I hear there is now a pool bar, sounds even better

Defo a place we will come back to ;-)

We stayed at Vista Cay 23 July to 6 Aug. Accommodation was 5*. Would recommend highly. This was our first visit to Orlando. We were thrilled with all the facilities and the location is so close to Universal and Seaworld etc. The pools were fab too. Everywhere was clean and well kept. We will definitely be back soon.

Just returned from spending an excellent 2 weeks at vista cay. We had booked a 2 bedroom premium condo through direct holidays, we were very pleased to receive a complimentary upgrade to a 3 bedroom condo. It was very spacious, , and had everything that we required. The pool area and bar where great . The staff where very helpful and friendly. Location is very good, close to all of the parks and shopping areas. We ate at the Chinese and the nypd pizza restaurant , shopped at the publix, which where all very good. I would strongly recommend staying at this complex , if you would like to stay close to the parks , without the hustle and bustle of international drive.

Room Tip: Building 5025, suite 301. Close to reception area , and the pool and bar.
