A family resort and spa with access to theme parks, outlet stores

For shoppers and theme park visitors, the Lake Buena Vista Resort Village and Spa is in the ideal location. The luxury hotel is next to the Lake Buena Vista Factory Stores, an outlet emporium with more than 50 well-known brands. Free scheduled shuttles transport guests to major theme parks. Accommodations offer plenty of space for leisure or business travelers. A pirate-themed pool and full-service spa set the mood for bliss.

Highlights

  • Condos with full kitchens
  • Free scheduled shuttle to major theme parks
  • Lake Buena Vista Factory Stores next door
  • Full-service spa
  • Themed pool and poolside bar
  • Planned activities for kids
Features

The Pirates Plunge zero-entry pool -- with waterfalls and water cannons -- captures the theme park feel of the area, but that's not the only feature that will hold the attention of kids. The Sky Kids Club hosts movie nights, arts and crafts sessions and poolside activities, while a fully equipped arcade teases with billiards and video games.

 

Parents have multiple leisure options, from couple's massages at Reflections Spa & Salon to hearty pub grub at Frankie Farrell's Irish Pub & Grille. For trips to Disney World, SeaWorld and Universal Studios, reserve a spot on the scheduled shuttles at least 24 hours in advance.

Great for families

A great escape from Disney. We loved being able to use the kitchen, saving money on breakfast and drinks. The two-bedroom was perfect for our family of five.

Bring bottles of water and breakfast goods so you're not always buying expensive drinks and food. Also, ask the front desk for laundry soap and dishwasher detergent. They have it readily available.

Excellent and elegant hotel

We stayed at this hotel on a brief weekend getaway. My husband and I traveled with his sister and son. Everyone had their own room and space. The hotel staff was wonderful when we checked in. The staff all spoke to you and acknowledged you during the day with a "hello" and "smile". The lobby and pool area were gorgeous. Very elegant for an "orlando" hotel(we've stayed at many over the years). This place is close to Disney. The price was excellent!!!!

clean pleasant and empty midweek

Very convenient to Disney - 15 minutes - and clean and pleasant. The place was so empty midweek that they give us a 2br though we had booked a 1 br. Nice view of the great pool with pirate ship. All staff were very pleasant and helpful. Kitchen had everything though we never did find the canopener. $9.50/night "resort fee" was obnoxious but we had been warned. Fitness room was fine except dreadfully overheated.

Family Vacation

The room was supposed to have two master suites but the staff made us pay an extra 30.00 a night. Once in the room the room with 2 twin beds had the metal frame sticking out. My 7 year son didn't see it because the bed comforter was over the frame he ran into it & has a large cut on his leg. We had stayed at this place before & it was nice. The master tubs didn't work at all.

Great family place

The only problem we had was that the reservations department of the hotel had not typed in our reservation [...]. After some prodding, we worked around the problem.Great restaurant across the street. Great store across the street with pizza place, beer and wine, as well as anything else you need.Place had two twin beds, king bed, and a hide-bed. This is a place for kids and close to Disney with shuttle service available.
