“Better than Home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2014

The best resort stay ever! This place is unbelievable. The grounds are amazing, the clubhouse restaurant and bar was top notch, the rooms were extremely clean, bottles of water everyday, great beds and pillows, it's beyond a shower, it's an experience. T.V. in the bathroom mirror? Need I say more? The very best part was the staff, so friendly and accommodating. Everyone smiling, saying Hello, and waving as you pass by. Concierge assisted with all of our needs and answered all of our questions. They helped with park tickets, transportation, car rental, golf. Wow, they take pride in all they do- from grounds crew, housekeeping, front desk, bellman, bar tenders, wait staff, even the golf cart guys. We were there for 10 memorable days and we will definitely be back. We didn't use the facility enough and could honestly be content, never leaving the property. It was close to the parks with free shuttles. Nice to be away from the craziness of the park. If you want to re-energize and relax away from the parks, stay here. We rented a car to see more of Orlando and Kennedy but the resort is fairly close to shopping and restaurants. Awesome experience! The Laramie Family

Room Tip: Villas are all beautiful.

not a lot to do with children, noisy second floor Over booked had to pack & move 2 a diff room during stay mgr offered to comp for 2 day but when on vac it's not just about the $$$$ we booked the room months in advance to avoid and we we were checking in was told we would not have to moved. LIES

Room Tip: Choose an upstairs room and even though we booked our room months in advance double check before you...

Green Features: hey over booked. We packed and moved to a diff room even though our room was booked months before our arrival. The manager comp two of the eight nights that we stayed but when you're on vacation it's not about the money but about piece of mind.

I want to thank you for your feedback about your recent visit to the resort. I want to apologize that your expectations were not met by my team and me. There is no excuse for the room changes you had to encounter and I apologize for the misinformation you received from the staff causing those room changes. We could have done a better job of explaining what had happened and a better job of fixing it. If you have the time to speak personally I would greatly appreciate the chance to apologize personally and to talk more about your stay.

Warm Regards,

This place is the best!
From the moment you arrive you feel at peace and the grounds are beautiful!

The villa - light sensors when you get out of bed, tv in the bathroom mirror, shower out of this world, super clean everywhere, so much space, fully equipt kitchen, amazing views of the golf course, bottles of water replenished everyday.... I really could go on

You must take a buggy and ride around the golf courses! Breathtaking views! & also spend time at the hyatt the facilities (all inc. in the resort fee) is so much fun!

The staff go above and beyond to make you happy!
See you next year, we can't wait to return! Thank you for an unforgettable holiday! from the Octave Family

The hotel was beautiful in every way. Stayed here with family in August and we couldn't have chosen a nicer hotel. Setting within the golf course was beautiful and we woke up to breathtaking views every morning. Staff at every single location within the hotel were extremely helpful and courteous...rooms were really roomy and big and the bathroom was really nice and big as well with really nice toiletries. Location is near to Disney World and all the other theme parks in the area. Convenient location as well to several shopping malls although you would need a car to get around easily and at your convenience. Would definitely recommend to anyone in the Orlando area, and would definitely stay here again myself.

This is definitely one of the best resorts I have ever stayed at. Grounds are beautiful, villas modern with numerous nice touches such as automatic lights when you step out of bed, huge bathroom with spa tub... Personnel is great too. The place is practically flawless, it's a must if you are visiting Orlando.

The entry way into the villas has breathtaking views of the grounds and golf courses. The high quality experience starts here but certainly does not end here. We usually plan one long weekend a summer to take advantage of the golf, high quality accomodations, and great restaurants. The check in staff at the villas is knowledgeable, friendly and go out of their way to be friendly and make you feel like a welcome guest. I enjoy the personal escort to the villa by the bell staff to assist with the check in process and to review items in the villa. Villas are extremely comfortable and do not have a hotel feel at all. The grounds are quiet and secluded that enhance privacy and feel of peace and tranquility. The villas are newly renovated with an enhanced comfort and sense of pampering. The bathroom upgraded features are impressive and unique. Staff throughout the property is extremely friendly and you won't pass by any staff member whom will not greet you with a genuine courtesy smile. You will feel welcome your entire stay! Restaurant menus at pool bar and The Club are diverse. Nice sports bar feel in the club house. You will not want to leave!

Room Tip: All villas have spectacular views of the golf courses.

Stayed here with family in August 14. Quite simply, fantastic. Nothing is too much trouble. The staff were very helpful and pleasant. We would definitely return in the future. The golf set up is superb, with great greens and fairways.
Had breakfast in the main club house one morning and it was really good and excellent food
