Lake Buena Vista Resort Village & Spa a staySky Hotel/Resort

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Great place to stay and close to everything. All the parks are within a few miles. Since there is a kitchen we stopped by a Walmart and Target close by to pick up groceries. Clearwater Beach is an hour and a half away for a great beach day. Perfect family vacation!

This hotel worked fine for our 5-person family. There wasn’t much for food options and you have to pay for towels, housekeeping and soap/shampoo. Make sure to rent a car if you stay here.

Comfy, clean, quiet, perfect location. We love staying at this place! Our favorite!

Very clean and comfortable room. Amazing view of the pool! Was not too thrilled how they sucker you in too listening in on a time share. They do push that. They offer free breakfast of you do. That's a joke. Other than that great experience.

This is our third time staying here and as always we were very happy with the room and pool. The room is very spacious and comfortable. One of the best features is how close it is to Disney, Universal and the the airport. We would definitely stay here again.

I was very pleased with this resort. The room was spacious, clean, and had incredible views. The beds were comfy and the kitchen was fully equipped. I didn't have enough time to explore the property or use the amenities but everything looked really nice and well maintained. My only issue was, one of the toilets backed up and when I called guest services to request a repair person, it took a really long time to get through to someone. Not a deal breaker for me, though. I finally did get through and when I returned from my day at Epcot the issue had been fixed. I will definitely be staying again.

Hotel was located in a very nice location for ease of travel to the Disney Parks and the majority of all the other places most would be going. Didn't use the shuttle service, there weren't a lot of times the shuttles went to/from the parks and didn't want to be stuck to their schedule. Had a little trouble finding parking at the hotel when we came back late, but there are nice drop off locations next to elevators for loading/unloading people so there wasn't a long walk for everyone. Rooms were comfortable and had plenty of space to spread out, much better than a standard hotel room. The Irish Pub located on the premise was good food and friendly service. The hotel staff was very helpful, I would recommend staying to anyone going to Orlando for a vacation.

Our room was amazing the customer service was great very helpful getting a shuttle. It was clean and the property was amazing. We will be staying again!!!

Bathroom door didn’t lock, steak knives had grease and steak on them still, half of toaster didn’t work, 1 out of 4 coils on stove worked, pans are not non stick, dust in seams of beds, mold spot in showers, but it was nice and big, instead of making food there we bought food. We only went to the small pool because it was close to us and it was nice. Front desk staff very nice and friendly.

Good location. Beds were OK, but not great. The room otherwise was very good, spacious enough for our family of six adult-sized people. The expedia concierge was helpful and got us good tickets. The other concierge was pushing hard to get us into the timeshare presentation in exchange for discounted tickets to Universal. It would have been nice to have more flexibility and options for the park shuttle.

Nice hotel, rooms are spaciuos, very clean and nicely decorated! Full kitchen, living room and balcony are awesome addition! Awesome pool! Close to Disney World!

Very nice hotel . Just fyi clean the jets of the hot tub after every visit. Also maid service needs to put away there carts left them in the hallways.

We loved it here! Great for families. Beautiful sparkling clean pool with waterslide. Three hot tubs outdoor bar. Activities for the younger kids. Sand art games, etc. they even had someone bring an alligator for kids to pet so I was told. We missed it that day. I felt like I was home. 2 bath 2 bedrooms. Outdoor patio to relax Washer dryer full kitchen. Honestly you can hang out here most of the day if weather is good pool is beautiful. Walk across the street and there are some outlet stores like Nike, Osh Kosh, etc.

We had a full apartment which was nice but too big for just 2 guests but we figured out next year we will take the whole family and enjoy the place, since we only stayed the weekend and did not have time to enjoy the place.

only downside and I admit partial fault. My room was ready at 4 and I knew that. I arrived early and asked if there was any room available for I was very tired from traveling and the woman at the desk continued to tell me I couldn't until 4 and at about 230 I asked a different associate and he said my room has been ready. so either I was lied to or what but strange and I had to wait for a few hours in the lobby and no one told me the room was ready. other than that, it was great

Room clean and staff was pleasant was not in the room much and didn’t use the pool

the place was nice like the last time the people at the counter , Horrible to say the least

Disappointed in the on-site Pizza Hut Express. Choices and pricing not acceptable.

The 3bedroom 3 bath condo needed to be updated and thoroughly scrubbed. It has seen better days. The Beds where comfortable but this is not a 4 star resort. At best it’s a 2.5.

Condo was ok- shower leaked, mold in bathrooms and overall dated furniture that could use sprucing up. Dishwasher and clothes washer worked great and fast. Pool was nice and game room was fun. Great location, close to parks and has some fun shopping nearby. Staff was nice and attentive.

Hello, Thank you so much for your review! We are sorry for any confusion regarding housekeeping services; we are a self-catering, apartment style hotel and we do not have the typical daily service, however we do offer an array of very affordable housekeeping services for guests who prefer to have their room cleaned, that can be scheduled at the front desk. Thank you again for your feedback and for the opportunity to clear this up for future guests. We hope you'll stay with us again on our next visit to Orlando. Sincerely, Laura Guest Care Coordinator
