TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:
My family stayed here recently for a few nights. The resort is nice and very spread out. The staff was very friendly. The room was very nice for the money. Be warned that most of the activities... Read more are an up charge. There also is no type of room service. I understand it is a resort but at least there could be towel and garbage service included. Read less
Traveling with the family can be wonderful or disaster. This hotel was most accommodating. Thre kids 2 grand parents and 2 adult Disney enthusiasts. We arrived at 12:00 am. The room was clean... Read more comfortable and the heat being on was a nice touch. We were brought extra towels pillows. We where directed to location of the closest Walmart. Every staff member went above and beyond to make our stay a memorable one. I recommend highly for family travel. Louise R Read less
One of the things my family and I look for in places we stay is how clean they are. We stayed in one of the 2 bedroom suites in the 6 story rises they have on the property. Now admittedly, we were... Read more there for the Theme parks, and did not use the amenities that were in abundance here. The decor/styling of the suite was a bit dated 80s maybe early 90s feel, it was not a deterrent but noticeable. We used the kitchen, the in suite laundry and the very spacious bathrooms. (two in this suite) The kitchen was well stocked with Utensils and Dishes, this made making meals and lunches to go very pleasant. We stayed here for 6 days and it felt great after long days out being tourists to come back to a place that felt like a home, rather than a hotel. Would recommend anytime! Read less
We had the opportunity to stay at this resort for one night before our cruise. We really enjoyed the amenities this resort had to offer. You really don't need to leave the resort since they have... Read more everything there for you. Lots of dining options, lots of fun activities and shopping. We were assigned a high rise with 2 bedrooms and 2 baths. The rooms were a little dated, could use some touch ups. I would say if you have the choice, go with the house over the high rise. We were a little annoyed with house keeping the next morning. The check out time was a 10 am and they knocked on our door at least 2 times and called twice all before check out time. Read less
