Recent guest reviews

The personal was very knowledgeable and polite and the resort very clean

We love this property. We have 3 little kids under 5 and love this property. Great pool, park, beach, restaurants, activities, and character dining ecperience. Also boat and bus service to Disney is excellent. And the fact that you can walk to the boardwalk and other hotels like Disney beach and yacht club is awesome.

The parking was horrible. It seems like they booked a bunch of events and they didn't realize they don't have enough parking. We had to park on a grassy area over a sidewalk.

$11 for a grilled cheese sandwich?!?! Really?!?! Needs more kid friendly options on all the menus at all the restaurants.

I loved the views from the room. The pools were huge and not crowded. I hated how the rooms didn’t have microwaves. I also hated the very slow drains in the sink and bathtub. Those are my pet peeves.

Enjoyed the pools and boardwalk the room was perfect and a nice view with a balcony

Nice pools, easy walking area, close to theme parks and plenty of restaurants choices

Lots of pool areas. Easy walk or boat ride to the Boardwalk. Easy access to Epcot and Disney Hollywood studios by boat. Good variety of restaurants.

This hotel was spotless! New carpeting in the room. Restaurant open 24 hours. Speedy valet.

When requesting room with a view of the fireworks, it would be good if you didn't place us at the opposite side of the hotel. But we enjoyed everything else. We really appreciated the valet parking, staff, and allowing us to keep our car there after checking out while we visited Epcot. Having a place to keep our luggage safe with friendly staff was also wonderful. Thank you very much. We would stay there again.

In general the hotel is pretty and very conveniently located. The playground was way too dark they should turn on the lights. The food is expensive but it’s tasty.
