This was a 4 night stay in Orlando to visit Disney, Busch Gardens and do some shopping. Unfortunately I never had the time to appreciate the facilities being offered at this resort but from what I have seen, it wouldn't disappoint.
Although this hotel is located on International Drive, it is situated all the way down the tranquil south end of I-drive away from the hustle and bustle. The resort is massive and ideally you will want to have a car however there is a bus stop at the entrance of the resort although if you are staying in one of the furthest building in the resort, you will be looking at a good 10-15 minutes walk to the bus stop.
The resort offers free parking, complimentary wifi throughout, pools, golf, tennis, fitness centre, BBQ/picnic area and the list is endless. There are also a number of restaurants on site.
I stayed in a 1 bedroom villa and the room offers a full size kitchen with dish washer, washer and dryer. There is a dining table, a large screen TV and sofa in the living area. The bathroom consists of his and hers wash basin and a walk-in shower. Complimentary toiletries are provided. The bedroom has a Jacuzzi, a big bed, ceiling fan and TV. There is a vertical in-room safe which will fit a netbook and iPad but anything bigger or thicker will not fit. A big balcony is also present in the room.
This is an excellent choice for a resort stay in Orlando with excellent friendly staff. You are only 5 mins away from the Premium Outlets at Vineland Avenue and 10 mins away from Downtown Disney.
