Our Business and Pleasure Trip

It is a wonderful hotel, a true retreat from the hustle and bustle of the parks, and still a 12 min drive to the WDW. We had a very spacious 2bd suite, as we traveled with our 3 year old son. I had a conference to attend, and my husband and my son enjoyed the parks. This hotel is a true find: very clean, has all in room amnestied you can think of: full kitchen, jacuzzi, 3 flat screen Tvs, Dvd-player, screened porch. The grounds are great: playgrounds for kids, pools, fountains, a convenience store. We were never bothered by timeshare folks. We are planning our trip next year, and this will be the place we are coming back to. The free breakfast was so-so, but it did not mater to us that much: if you have a full kitchen, and the groceries within a 12 min drive.

Great Disney Trip w/ Friends

We stayed here for our friends wedding at Disney overall a great property and easily located about 10 minutes from Disney World. They rooms were very nice and clean and the pool area was awesome! We had complimentary buffet breakfasts one day, which was very good. Staff was kind, albeit tried to upsell us on lots of things, but thats to be expected. A great place to stay during your trip!

Great for families!

This was our first time to visit the Disney area. This location was perfect. The price was right, plenty of room because it was a suite, nice amenities, /full kitchen, convenience store for food and sundries...It was all just very easy, clean, affordable and fun. The kids loved it, and so did we!

Money-saving tip: In Hotel

Pick some food up at a grocery store on your way there. It is much less money than the convenience store on the property, but it's nice that they have a store on-site, just in case.

Great experience

The rooms are very nice, more like a condo than a hotel room. Same goes for the entire community, it has more of a home feel to it. Very comfortable. The property is very well maintained, and the breakfast was very good. The pool closest to us was very nice, just always crowded with families/kids. But overall I would recommend.

A Magic Location!

We went to go to Walt Disney World Magic Kingdom! It was nice to leave the park and stay where we had room to sit together as a family, enjoy the lanai in the morning and the company of family.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay

This was a very nice condo community, at least the condo we stayed in for 3 days. We were close to the store and one of the community pools. The community is fairly large, so that may not be the case for everyone, but we had an ideal location. We reserved a 2-bedroom, even though there were only 2 of us, because that was all that was available by the time we reserved the room. Things are so inexpensive in the Orlando area, compared to where we are from, that we still felt we were getting a good deal. The condo was very large, for a rental type of property,, the kitchen was high end and it was nice and quiet. We enjoyed feeding the ducks out of our hand at the little fish pond. One issue I have had with other condo complexes, is the parking, but we did not have any trouble here at all. We have every intention of returning to this location when we come back to Orlando.

Amazing Stay

I did a very extensive search of Orlando hotels before my trip as I was looking for a comfortable, very clean suite to stay with my husband and our 3 year old son for 9 days in Orlando. This resort is just GREAT, indeed home away from home: our 2bdr suite was newly rennovated, immaculate, full kitchen, we got vouchers for free breakfast, and $100 resort credit. We stayed in the Cascades building #10 and it was very quite, we did not receive any calls for a time share presentation if this might worry you, and we were never bothered by the staff. We enjoyed our snacks at the screened terrace overlooking a beautiful pond with a fountain. Our kid enjoyed the 3 playgrounds, kiddie pools, we rented a bike and could go around the property on the day off from the parks. Everything is very close: Walmart, Publix - 10-12 min, the WDW was like 12-14 min; there is Walgreens nearby you could walk to. The Premium Outlets Mall is 5 min, and I recommend to do your shopping there instead of on International Drive which I did not like at all for being so crowded and full of loud people from Brazil. The outlets in Buena Vista close to the hotel had better deals, and the hotel gave us a voucher for a coupon book that saved us some $$. Overall, our stay was very enjoyable, we managed to get some true peaceful rest after the parks, plus the hotel provides lots of entertainment options for the days you are not visiting the parks. Next time we are in Orlando, I will not look any further, and this will be our next home away from home while visiting Orlando.

Couldn't have been any better

Had a wonderful stay at the resort. There isn't one thing that I could complain about. The grounds were kept clean, the pools were clean and the rooms were spotless. Will definitely stay again
