Amazing time at the Radisson Barcelo! I stayed with my family this past February and even though it was spring break it was very calm.
Rooms: The rooms were very nice. They were kept very clean. There was one problem and that was one of the pillows had some chemicals on it possibly from the dry cleaning service, but it smelt pretty bad and we exchanged it. The beds weren't bad at all very comfortable.
Pool: This is probably the best part of the hotel. The pool was very big shaped like a V. It was never overcrowded especially during the day.
Facilities: The YMCA is located right next to the Barcelo and if you go to the front desk at the Barcelo they give you free passes to the YMCA. When I went there was a swim meet going on and you could hear the screams when they opened up the roof over the YMCA pool it was very exciting.
Location: Best location possible. Not to close to Disney World or Universal or Seaworld but close enough. Fabulous restaurants. I recommend Pizza Uno's chicago style pizza. International Dr. is amazing so much to see.
My recommendation if your going to Disney World is to go early in the morning then around 11:30 head back to International Dr. for lunch the whole area is empty especially during weekdays at this time, then go swim in the pool and suntan. Then around 5:30 go for a nice dinner on International Dr. and then go back to Disney World by this time all the parents with young kids are leaving or people are not as focused on going on the rides. Lets just say this method kept our family sane.
