great value, great location, friendly staff

Everything was great. Room was perfect for my daughter and I. Very easy access to restaurants, theme parks, airport. The only minor issues were the smell of the water in the room (not sure if they have any control over that), and the somewhat annoying calls in the morning to arrange to go listen to the sales pitch for the time share or another great-value vacation (which they want the money ahead of time of course).

Not quite what I was expecting

If you're looking for a pretty good deal but nothing fancy, this is a reasonable place to stay. It looked/sounded a bit nicer in the ads. The overall atmosphere was of a somewhat tired resort. The interior of the room looked nicer than the exteriors of the buildings, but it was very cramped. Nice bathroom, with granite and marble fixtures. Comfortable bed. Rather dark in the inner room.

Excellent location IF you only want to go to the parks

Excellent location with a 5 minute ride to Sea World and 12 to Universal on side roads. No need to travel on I4 or IDrive. However, if you plan on going to the pool after your park visit, forget about getting a lounge chair. 200+ units, many 2 BR and there are 2 relatively small pools with maybe 100 total chairs. Want to stay out late?. Good luck in finding a parking spot. Make sure you get multiple cards for unlocking your doors. We had to make at least SIX trips to the office to get new cards. SO, IF you get a good price and IF you are only planning on visiting parks, go for it. However, there are other 3 star options bigger and better

Shopping tip: Not Applicable

There is an incredibly HIGH PRICED Winn Dixie virtually next door. Ask for the nearest Publix ! There are 2 options, both about 5 or 6 miles away.

Average to below average

From reading reviews online and viewing the photos, the hotel was not exactly as we expected. The room was much smaller than we expected and was kinda blah. The bathroom was not very clean nor was the floor in the unit, the tub also did not hold water. Check in was mediocre and the resort policies were not explained. Once the staff heard that we were not going to sit through the time share session, we were handed a folder and keys. It would have been helpful to know that we needed to wash our own towels. The grounds were nicely landscaped, but parking was a premium. We often ended up parking quit a ways from our unit. Overall the stay was okay, next visit we may venture elsewhere.

Great stay. Nice and close to Disney. Would have liked a fitness center but nothing I would not come back for.

Florida travelers

The two bedroom condo was absolutely beautiful, and spacious! The location was also great- just ten minutes to Sea World with a grocery store and many many restaurants less than five minutes away.

Excellent!

Perfect for a family with small kids. Short drive to Disney and other attractions. Short walk to various dining and shopping locations. We'll definitely return.
