Oversized rooms , close to everything. Way better than staying in the park !!

It was a ok experience because i thought it would be very nice but it wasnt what i was use too.

Overall the resort was awesome with 3 pools with one indoor. Units were great and supplied well. Only issue were the hard beds. Could of been the unit we were in but thought it was worth mentioning.

We had a mini family reunion at this facility. The staff was very accommodating about getting us nearby rooms. The main center has a beautiful pool, workout rooms, hot tub and wading pool. To they offer activities that are inter generational and fun. We sat by a bonfire created by the staff and later went to a poolside magic show. Very enjoyable, and relaxing. We would recommend it!

This place is great we come here every year and have not had a problem we usually stayin bldg 8 which was recently updated everything is great here and we will be back next year

Nicely located between Disney and Universal. Room was nice and clean with a large screened in balcony. Lots of activities for kids including a large pool and game room. Would definitely stay here again.

Nice place... Good value. Main pool was cold but there was one that was heated. Would come again.

I have stayed at the resort 3 times -- the 1st time was awesome. The staff was very friendly room was nice and clean and everything was good. 2 time was alright except they bugged you about takin one of the timeshare tours after the 5th phone call I told them I was all set !! The 3rd time was terrible the room was not cleaned lights and fans didn't work the dryer was broken and my view was from inside of a palm tree. When I booked it I asked for a top floor on a corner. They gave me a beat down unclean room with issues right outside an elevator --- the day there I ask to change rooms and they said they were join to have to charge me a cleaning fee --- it took me callin the front desk 4 times to speak to someone in authority in the meantime messed up my plans at SeaWorld ( should have been at SeaWorld at 10am--- did get there until 12:30 because they swapped me into another room that had other issues fan in the patio didn't work so more lights didn't work and the last 2 days my card key didn't work. When we checked out nobody thanked me for stayin did even ask me how my stay was and oh did I mention there were ducks (about 12 ) swimming in the pool and hangin out in pool area ( gross ) I did not enjoy the pool or hot tub and some of the staff were friendly others didn't even say hi--- not like our previous stays and they not once offer to take a tour which was why I brought my friend there ---we had enjoyed our stays before so to bring her for her 1st time and things go they way they went was awful -- she and I were definitely all set !!!

Excellent hotel and a very great experience I would do it again

Everything is excellent will be coming back , great affordable price and staff are friendly and helpful and there is alot to do while you vacation fun

We stayed in a 2 bedroom suite with a balcony, pull out couch and all the amenities needed. It was beautiful. Definitely can't wait to stay there again!

From check-in to check-out, everything was wonderful. I vacationed with my teenage daughter and parents. Everyone had a memory making time--something for everyone at the resort. Rather its a relaxing massage at poolside (it was great) or a ride down the slide at the pool--it was moment after moment of fun. My personal best part was the fire pit! It was perfect on a slightly breezy FL night! Lodging was incredibly clean and the staff very supportive. The two bedrooms provided everyone with enough space to have a great time! I wound stay there again...without hesitation!

The room is huge and there are tons of power outlets, making it easy to work anywhere in the room. The finishes etc. were a step down from the Hilton Grand Vacations down the road, but I actually liked this property and room better. The bed was very squishy, which meant that I found it very uncomfortable; YMMV. The fitness center is excellent for a hotel at this price point. There actually weren't tons of screaming kids like I expected, but it was the off season.

This was our second stay at The Fountains. We were put in building 10 this time right next to the pool and it was fabulous. The only thing I missed was having the balcony facing the lake and fountain but the convenience of being right next to the pool and the beautiful comfortable room made it worth it. I love this place, especially the Pool. Its so incredibly large but layed out smart so you don't ever feel on top of other people. My son was big enough to enjoy the slide this year and I think he went on it 64,986 times LOL. They have nice activities for the kids throughout the day and a nice kids room and arcade in the club house. We are very happy and will definately go back. It is a timeshare so you will be asked to attend the presentation. If you have no interest just BE FIRM WITH YOUR NO or they will bug you if you don't give a firm NO. Staff is friendly, property is clean its lovely.

The staff at this place is great. They are friendly and helpful. The location of the hotel is the perfect spot, just minutes away from the attractions. We had a great view and really enjoyed our stay.

We spent 4 days there while visiting the theme parks. It was about 15 min from the airport, 15 min from Disney, 5 min from Sea World, & 5 min to a Publix grocery store (that sells alcohol) & Walmart. Perfect location & quite spacious for families with small kids - a 2 bedroom was perfect for 2 adults & 4 small kids (under 9). This was the best condo deal we found for peak season. Staff was courteous, professional, always prompt to address issues like remote not working & no dishwashing soap - someone came to the room within 30minutes. Clean rooms & good value for price.

IT WAS COLD THE WEEKEND WE WENT SO WE USED THE INDOOR POOL. THE GROUNDS WERE VERY NICE. HOWEVER THE H20 CLUB WAS SMALLER THAN WE THOUGHT IT WOULD BE.

Great hotel, lots of room, nice kitchen. Hated that we had to pay for internet access and it wasnt wireless (it was $20 for 3 days). Otherwise everything was great, loved the indoor pool in January. Loved that they included some paper towels, laundry det., dishwashing soap, etc, though if you had a longer stay, you would need more (not included). No housekeeping, but that didnt bother us.

The condo is elegantly furnished and everything looked to be in perfect condition. It was fully equipped with a large fridge/freezer, full-size oven, dishwasher, microwave, washer/dryer, pots/pans/utensils, etc. It has a nice balcony which overlooks the lake and fountains. Everything within the community is within walking distance. I liked the nightly phone calls about all the activities taking place the next day. There were no hard sells for timeshares, which was a nice relief. The location is about 3.5 miles to Disney and outside of the complex is a brand new Benihana Restaurant. There is a shopping mall about 1/2 mile down that does contain a grocery store (Publix), Walgreens (drug store), restaurants (Japanese and Mexican), and other stores. The clubhouse and pool area are wonderful, too. Lots and lots to do. They do have restaurants, but we had no time to eat at them. (I rated them a 3 because there is no choice for N/A, so I put it in the middle). The second pool with the "water park" type slides and equipment was closed during our stay. Needless to say my kids were quite disappointed, but still had a great time in the other pool. Would highly recommend staying here. We TOTALLY enjoyed it :-D

We enjoyed the pools once we found someone to get us our bands and towels.
