One word--Awesome!!

From check-in to check-out, everything was wonderful. I vacationed with my teenage daughter and parents. Everyone had a memory making time--something for everyone at the resort. Rather its a relaxing massage at poolside (it was great) or a ride down the slide at the pool--it was moment after moment of fun. My personal best part was the fire pit! It was perfect on a slightly breezy FL night! Lodging was incredibly clean and the staff very supportive. The two bedrooms provided everyone with enough space to have a great time! I wound stay there again...without hesitation!

Lots of Power Outlets

The room is huge and there are tons of power outlets, making it easy to work anywhere in the room. The finishes etc. were a step down from the Hilton Grand Vacations down the road, but I actually liked this property and room better. The bed was very squishy, which meant that I found it very uncomfortable; YMMV. The fitness center is excellent for a hotel at this price point. There actually weren't tons of screaming kids like I expected, but it was the off season.

Visit #2 and still LOVE it

This was our second stay at The Fountains. We were put in building 10 this time right next to the pool and it was fabulous. The only thing I missed was having the balcony facing the lake and fountain but the convenience of being right next to the pool and the beautiful comfortable room made it worth it. I love this place, especially the Pool. Its so incredibly large but layed out smart so you don't ever feel on top of other people. My son was big enough to enjoy the slide this year and I think he went on it 64,986 times LOL. They have nice activities for the kids throughout the day and a nice kids room and arcade in the club house. We are very happy and will definately go back. It is a timeshare so you will be asked to attend the presentation. If you have no interest just BE FIRM WITH YOUR NO or they will bug you if you don't give a firm NO. Staff is friendly, property is clean its lovely.

We went had dinner at T-Rex in Downtown Disney after we saw Cirque Du Soleil. It was AWESOME. Food was VERY VERY good, the atmosphere was nice , kids loved it and was reasonable. There were like 1000 people there and we only had to wait 35 min, we just shopped in the gift shop while we waited.

Great Stay

The staff at this place is great. They are friendly and helpful. The location of the hotel is the perfect spot, just minutes away from the attractions. We had a great view and really enjoyed our stay.

Perfect for families with kids

We spent 4 days there while visiting the theme parks. It was about 15 min from the airport, 15 min from Disney, 5 min from Sea World, & 5 min to a Publix grocery store (that sells alcohol) & Walmart. Perfect location & quite spacious for families with small kids - a 2 bedroom was perfect for 2 adults & 4 small kids (under 9). This was the best condo deal we found for peak season. Staff was courteous, professional, always prompt to address issues like remote not working & no dishwashing soap - someone came to the room within 30minutes. Clean rooms & good value for price.

Loved the pool and big rooms!

Great hotel, lots of room, nice kitchen. Hated that we had to pay for internet access and it wasnt wireless (it was $20 for 3 days). Otherwise everything was great, loved the indoor pool in January. Loved that they included some paper towels, laundry det., dishwashing soap, etc, though if you had a longer stay, you would need more (not included). No housekeeping, but that didnt bother us.

Great Place for a Great Price !

The condo is elegantly furnished and everything looked to be in perfect condition. It was fully equipped with a large fridge/freezer, full-size oven, dishwasher, microwave, washer/dryer, pots/pans/utensils, etc. It has a nice balcony which overlooks the lake and fountains. Everything within the community is within walking distance. I liked the nightly phone calls about all the activities taking place the next day. There were no hard sells for timeshares, which was a nice relief. The location is about 3.5 miles to Disney and outside of the complex is a brand new Benihana Restaurant. There is a shopping mall about 1/2 mile down that does contain a grocery store (Publix), Walgreens (drug store), restaurants (Japanese and Mexican), and other stores. The clubhouse and pool area are wonderful, too. Lots and lots to do. They do have restaurants, but we had no time to eat at them. (I rated them a 3 because there is no choice for N/A, so I put it in the middle). The second pool with the "water park" type slides and equipment was closed during our stay. Needless to say my kids were quite disappointed, but still had a great time in the other pool. Would highly recommend staying here. We TOTALLY enjoyed it :-D
