My family stayed in a villa suite with 3 bedrooms as a vacation to disney world. We stayed in July of 2013 but the review did not have July in the choice box. Just a quick tip, this place is... Read more terrible. When we arrived me and my sister were unpacking and found a bunch of dead bugs, trash, and strangely enough a par of toddler pants shoved under the bed as if housekeeping just put it under the bed. Have I also say the amount of low class people who stay here is unbelieveable. Just rude, self centered people. Then me and my family had an hour or two at the pool and how unbelievably stupid it is that they charge you $10 per person for an inflatable tube and then another $10 just to get a wristband to ride the waterslide. Our room was filthy with dirty rugs, lack of towels, and the smell of mold. The last straw was when there was 8 small children from the age of 3-8, unattended, saying in the room above ours. The kids were running around like animals, all day, all night. Then one afternoon me and my mom went upstairs and looked in the window to see what was going on and what the noise was. There were no adults, and one kid was trying to shove his brother in the dryer. We then decided to call security and the front desk were just completely rude and delusional to the problem. It took a whole 2 hours for security to arrive and they stayed for 10 minutes just to talk to another employee and left without going upstairs to the unattended children. I can assure you I won't EVER be staying here again. Read less
As two couples with 2 kids each (total of 8 persons), the Villa here were the best choice for us during our theme park vacations. The rooms were big enough for all of us, plus a convertible twin-bed... Read more couch. The kitchen was a must as 2 of the kids were under 2 and needed prepared foods, creams, milk etc. Washing machine and dryer was also a much needed and used amenity given it was August and sweat was aplenty. It's a very big complex with single floor villas and multi-storey ones, golf course and swimmings pools, all of which we used none, since our primary reason for being in Orlando was the theme parks and didn't have time nor strenght after them to do anything else.

Me and my family stayed in a two bedroom villa at this beautiful resort and had a wonderful time. There were many activities to experience and enjoy without leaving the property. My grandson which is... Read more five years old and in-laws had a blast at the waterpark. There are many amenities offered at this property and we took advantage of some. Many restaurants and shopping centers. Honestly, no car is needed. You are surrounded by a grocery store, all types of restaurants and gift shops. The only down fall to this stay was after my daughter took a shower and the glass from the shower door fell on her. After experiencing spasms she reported this incident to front desk and security was dispatched to take a report and offer two ice packs. Later that night she begin to hurt and experienced more spasms. No one called nor stop by to ask if she was ok. We decided to visit management to express how it was very disappointing and disturbing to witness the unconcern attitude of management and staff. Because of this incident, we decided to stay an extra day so my daughter could see how she would be feeling since she was one of the drivers. As of today no one have contacted her just to show concern. Make sure your room(s) are completely inspected and everything is working and secured. Read less
Really enjoyed this property. Went for a promotional visit. They provided us with a spacious 2 bedroom Villa. The grounds and amenities were great. Our son and his wife joined us for a couple of days... Read more and they also loved it. Only negative was the "2 hour" sales pitch that took over 4 hours. The price you pay for a comp. We bought extra days and it was well worth it. Would recommend Orange Lake. Read less
