This Resort Is Great For Your Florida Vacation

Me & My Wife Just Stayed At This Resort From July 16th - 23rd & It Was Wonderful. Upon Driving Up To The Main Lobby, It's A Very Beautiful, Clean & Wonderful Place To See, The Staff Was Very, Very Polite & Kind, After Getting My Two Room Keys & Driving Back To My Villa (The Property Is Huge), Upon Opening The Door, I Was Just Shocked & The Extreme Cleanliness & Neatness Of The Room, The Room Was Well Stocked With Extra Towels, Sheets, Blankets, & Bathroom Supplies, Everything was In Prestine Condition, Down To The Ironing Board & Iron, The TV Was A Little Dated (Not FlatScreen), But Huge Anyway, So You Could Live With it, The Outside Patio With Table & Two Chairs & Inside table With Two Chairs Was Clean & In Very Good Condition, The King Sized Bed Was In Very Good Condition & Well As The Sleeper Sofa. The Jacuzzi Is Small, You Couldn't Get Two People Into it. The Glass Inclosed Shower Was Excellent, The Only problem I noticed We had Slightly, Is The When Your Gone All Day And Come Back Into Your Room, There Be Some Type of Bugs that Be in The Jacuzzi (Small like Nats) Only Like 5 or 6, Just Rinse Them Out And Your Fine, But This Will Be Everyday Though. The Kitchenette Was great, You Get Microwave, Mini Fridge, Toaster, Coffee Maker, Set Of Dishes, Silverware, Glasses, Bowls (All Dishes Are See-Thru Glass) & Sink, They Stock You With Two Rolls of Paper Towels, Several Dish Clothes & Plenty Other Things, And To Have The Lake, 15 Feet Away As Your Patio View (Which Is Screened In), To Keep The Bugs Out is Awesome. Free Buses Run Every 15mins To Take You Anywhere On The Westgate Property You Wish, You Also Can Catch Any Of The Guys Driving the Golf Carts, Its About 7 Pools You Can Go To At Your Leisure. They Have A Smokehouse Steak Resturant, Pizzahut Express & A Market On The Property & Very Close To The Super Walmart. There Is To Much I Could Say About this Resort To Mention, It's A Lovely, Beautiful Place, & From Now On When I Visit Orlando, FL, This Is Where I Will Be Staying. I Would Just Upgrade From The Studio To The 1-Bedroom.

Walmart Is About 1/2 Mile Or Less Down The Street For Anything You May Want To Buy In Bulk, If Not, The On-Site Market (A Little Pricey) Has Almost Everything You Would Be looking For.

Not your ordinary hotel

At the time we booked the Westgate Lake Resort and Spa, we did not know it was a timeshare. I commend the staff after finding out we were in Orlando to attend a trade show at the OCC, they did not push the timeshare speech. We had a lovely room with a balcony overlooking the lake. We did not use alot of the amenities except for the gym - which was above avg. in both equipment and staff. Shampoo, soap, towels were under avg. standards...more like a motel. The staff with the exception of housekeeping was extremely friendly. Though they did a fine job and I do understand housekeeping has a strenuous job, they did not speak English, it felt as if we were on one of the islands instead of Florida. The one thing i must say they need to address is a path, to enjoy the beauty of the lake as well as to walk on instead of the parking lot to get to the main house for the gym or to the restaurant, or just to walk for exercise or leisure.. .

disney trip

The stay at Westgate was nice. Upon check-in, we were sent to a side table where a nice lady almost pressured us into having a breakfast to sell a timeshare, not interested. That experience made us fear going back into the lobby the rest of the trip. The rooms were awesome! nice resort and a good distance to all of the Disney resorts. Nice selection of pools and activities for our little one, although the pools were in need of a deep cleaning. would return if not pressured for sales pitch. We called the next morning after checking out because we forgot a bag from Disney there and they took the items to UPS to have them shipped to us, nice service
