Arrived on the 13th October and checked in very good didn't get the high flooring we requested but on to timeshare guy who after being all smiles and giving us the world (disney tickets) asked for my... Read more opinion I told him I'm not interested I want to go to my room He just blanked us and turned away. Well I was so pleased with myself I can't afford timeshare so what's the point. The villa looked old and worn when we turned up room 2064 I think we went in and it was ok. That night out it came running along the floor cockroach well his life end soon after that but my wife was shocked we've been coming to Florida for 20 yrs and never seen one really. We're from Scotland so a cockroach is a big deal. The next night we came back from universal and there it was another one well I could not catch this little sh@@ into the wall he went. So call reception and they said it will be tomorrow before someone could spray. 5 am my daughter screaming ins on my bedroom wall so we marched to reception were we met a great guy Mr England and after talking to the manager got us relocated to a high rise closer to the main pool great it only took us 45 mins to move. The manager on that night was very nice and I'm sorry I didn't get his name. After all that the holiday went great we loved the lazy river we had 2 full days there loved that was a cashless resort I topped up 20dollars every few days so did not go crazy. Would I return only if I was guarenteed a high flooring. I read a lot of reviews before I came here and I can see it is a hit or miss this place. We were lucky I think Florida was brilliant this year memory's for a life time. Read less

I have a long history of using times shares because of my parents before I bought my own. I used RCI to find Orange Lake and they had a good review. I booked a 2 bedroom because being a RCI Platinum... Read more you have a chance to get an upgraded room. Keep that in mind people... When my group arrived at the resort after driving almost 10 hours, we had to check in. I think only 1 family was in front of us. We waited for less than 5 minutes before someone opened up checked us in. I asked about the upgrade and she apologized because the resort is full.. funny because most of the units around my unit are empty or being worked on. When she gave us our room u get moved over to another desk where they sign u up for a timeshare meeting. When we finally got to our room in the west village, my patio door opened right onto the busy road (192). I was upset about that.. I sat on my bed and it was broken. So now I had to drive back to the welcome center where I spent more time and got another room. When got to this unit the keys didn't work. Long story short about the keys.. it took another 2 hours to get into my unit. So my group bought a 7 day pass that we wanted to return and when we did they tried to sell us more crap. Now the day of the time share presentation. We had a 745 appointment and got there at 744. We walked through the door and only 4 people working the counter and 21 people in line. I actually counted because I'm not going to stand in line and watch it move slow. So after 5 mins of not moving my girlfriend and I left. When we got back to the unit my friend said someone called and was snippy saying you missed your appointment. I called them back because I am now upset cause they where rude to him and gave him person information. I called to complain and was hung up on.. I am still here till Friday so let's see how this goes... Read less

Around your areas but that person just said "i don't know, so sorry". I felt like they don't want to service people some how and i didn't even want to bother that person anything else. Overall staying was so great , location , interior, nice housekeeping but not the desk person though. Read less
