TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:
The property is very large, i believe it may be the largest of its catagory in the US. The check in area was very nice and the process was very easy and quick. The pool area was very large and seemed... Read more to have a "party" atmosphere, there are 3(?) pools all located in the same compound, there is a bar, restaurant, store for swimming supplies, just a very big area. If you want to swim in less chaotic settings or a little more quiet, this isnt it. If you dont mind 100s of chairs all jammed together and jammed packed full of people, this is your place. Now on to the good: our room/condo was a 2 br/2bath villa. each villa had its own parking and from car to door was only about 20 ft, nice. The villa was very nice, clean, and modern. our back side was on a golf course, this did not cause us any issues. The main br was in the back of the villa while the 2nd br was in the front, plenty of separation between the 2. In order to gain entry onto the property, you must show a parking pass at the front security. There is a lazy river somewhere on the property but i believe there is a tube rental fee. For us, what would have been better would have been smaller pools scattered about the property that people in each section could walk to instead of one big area of pools that 99% of the guests have to drive to. We would definitely stay here again. Parking by the room door, no one above or below us, and no stairs are big pluses for us (we're not lazy, we usually log 15-20mi/day at Disney lol). Also, the complex was only about a 10min drive once on 192 and there are plenty of restaurants, grocery, and other stores very close that make it very convenient and its away from the cheesy tourist area, in an area with newer construction. It also had the best free wifi we have ever experienced Read less
We just got back from a long weekend at Orange Lake. My family and I have been there many times and my family and I have never been disappointed. The grounds are beautiful and well kept, the staff is... Read more always friendly and helpful, and the rooms a spacious and clean. My 3 kids love being there and swimming in the lazy river, sliding down one of the slides in the pools, and playing miniature golf. We have also rented the little boats and had a blast with them on the lake on premises. There is so much more that I could touch upon, but I recommend this resort for a couple's get away or for a fantastic family vacation. Read less
