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.

This place is legit

Wow, this place was/is nice. We were so excited upon seeing the resort, both at the drive up and upon entering our room. Friendly, efficient check-in. Very beautiful grounds. Very nice interior hallways. And our room (2 BR Antigua suite)… fantastic! All rooms (Living room, dining room, kitchen, bedrooms and both bathrooms) were very spacious and beautiful. Nice furniture. New appliances – including washer and dryer, microwave, dishwasher. Full cupboards of utensils, colander, even a blender. Master bath was huge and had a Jacuzzi. Everything was spotless. Beds very comfortable. Best of all was the pool. Huge with fountains and a zero entry beach with a themed pirate ship including water slide – so fun. Pool bar was great (mixed drinks such as pina coladas were 6 or 7 bucks – expensive but no where near Disney prices). Our two kids loved it. Also there are 3 hot tubs there. This pool is open until 10 pm. There was another, smaller pool (also with a hot tub) onsite that we didn't visit. Location is extremely close to Disney – check it out on a map. Only down sides to our visit were: 1. Our feet were dirty after walking on the carpet. It appears clean but isn't. 2. Bedroom windows have blinds, but no curtains, so unless you hang a bedsheet or something else, you can block sunlight, but there is no way to get the bedrooms dark. Other than that, our air conditioning stopped working one day. I called to the front desk and within 20 minutes a maintenance guy came and fixed it. No problem. I highly recommend this place to families with or without kids. Upgrade to at least the Antigua suite. Sweet!

Great Value for the family

I was so surprised to find this hotel/condo unit so close to all the atractions in Orlando, 10 minutes from Sea World, Disney, Universal. No to mention the building was brand new. There is an outlet mall in the front with nice shops. The completely furnished kitchen, dishes, soap and dishwasher where awesome. No housekeeping service unless you paid extra but we didn't need it anyways, we are very clean and orderly and we really dont mind using the same towel a couple times. Towels available at the pool - which was so cool - it had a pirate ship in it and a tiki bar at the side. Fun for all. A Walmart less than a mile away to pick up anything you might need. We where upgraded to a 2 bedroom suite, the living area had a LCD flat tv. Even included stack washer dryer. The unit had a small balcony with a table and chairs. Just the greatest. Definetly will return. There is 5 buildings, I'd guess about 500 total units, but not full when we visited. The desk was able to give great directions, since its new your in car navigation may have trouble locating so call. I think anyone would love it!!

*****

Excellent location, large apartments and plenty of space for everyone to relax. We were a family of 4 (2 kids 13 and 9). This is our 2nd time to stay at this complex. The kids loved the pool area, it was never too busy even though we stayed during July/August. Excellent value for money and would definitely highly recommend it.

For an evening with a difference try dining at Kobe (Japanese Steak House) you get your own chef to come and cook for you at your table.

Excellent Value and Great Location

You can't go wrong with this hotel. Great location and the rooms are wonderful, especially, if traveling with a family. The room was spacious and the jacuzzi tub relaxing after a day shopping at the outlets, located just outside of your hotel. Highly recommend.

If you are looking for bigger name outlets, just take a right out of these outlets and go about 2 miles down the road to the higher names.

Will be back

The hotel was in a great location, the rooms were terrific and the pool was fantastic. It was difficulty to find since the resort is so new and didn't register on our GPS.

Great place to stay.

The Lake Buena Vista Resort Village and Spa was a great place to stay while in Orlando. It is located close to all of the major attractions. I would absolutely stay there again.
