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.

Family Vacation.

Excellent vacation spot for family. We were in Orlando to visit Disney Land. This hotel offered a great escape from the hussle and bustle of the attraction spots. It was like going home at night to relax. Very comforting. The pool area was lovely, My daughter was thrilled. We saved money by staying at this hotel as it gave our family the option to eat in the room. We ate better nutritional meals as a result instead of fast food or expensive suppers out.

Very family friendly

My husband,sister-in-law and I stayed in one of the suites. It was so spacious and immaculate. Great value for money. Save more money by making breakfast in their very well equipped kitchen. It had its own washer and dryer inside unit which was another awesome feature! We would definately stay there again on our next trip to Disney!

it was great

Everything was great except that we got there at midnight and there was no toilet tissue in any of the two bathrooms and at that time had to call the front desk to bring some up to the sixth floor and then the person at the front desk wanted for us to go get it. No way we just got there and we were exhausted after a long trip, so I suggested that he find someone to bring it to us. He had the security guard bring it up.

An unexpected but delightful surprise

My husband and I vacationed in Orlando without the kids this time. We were blown away with the hotel. It was simply amazing. We did not expect two large bedrooms, a master suite with a whirlpool tub, full kitchen, dining room table to seat 6 comfortably, two full bathrooms, balcony, etc. The best part was a washer and dryer in the room. Extremely convenient. We have taken many trips with and without the kids. This has to been by far one of the nicest rooms we've stayed in. The grounds and pool are immaculate. There were a few negatives. There is no room service unless you arrange for it ahead of time and it is an extra fee. You will need to budget for resort fees, which we were not aware of until the day we checked out. The Disney parks are further than advertised. Though the hotel provides a shuttle service, it is only twice a day. If you catch a cab, it will cost about $25 one way. You might as well rent a car and come and go as you please if you don't have transportation. There is no hotel restaurant but there is an Irish Pub that serves lunch and dinner. Overall, I would definitely come back to this hotel.

*****

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.
