TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:
Stayed at this hotel for a wk with my son and niece. We were doing a 2 centre with 1 wk in Disney and 1 wk on international drive. I loved this hotel , it's right near seaworld and aquatica. There is... Read more a I ride stop just outside the hotel . The hotel is at the quieter end of international drive with not many restaurants around but we used to eat on our way back from the parks. We had a room in one of the buildings outside , we found the room clean and spacious for us with a tv , coffee maker but no fridge. Only thing be careful of the bottled water left in your proom I thought they were free but when you check out you find you then get charged for them . On check in you get a warm cookie they are really nice. Taxis outside the hotel are not cheap to the parks, we used once but never again , don't mind paying but don't like being ripped off . Would definitely use this hotel again for international drive . Read less
Me and my boyfriend stayed in this hotel for 11 nights in April. Overall, we were very impressed with the hotel. Check in was quick and easy which, after a long flight from the UK, we were very... Read more happy about. The hotel room itself was a decent size with two big beds in it. We had no concerns about the cleanliness of the room and bathroom. The beds and pillows were comfortable. There is a safe in the room which works when it wants to work... It's very tempremental. It's a shame the room doesn't have a little fridge or something, just to keep some bottled water in etc. Though, there are ice machines dotted around the hotel and there's an ice bucket in the room, so we just kept our bottled water in an ice bucket. One thing I will say about the room is that the walls are VERY thin and you can hear everthing going on in the rooms next door and everything outside as well, which did affect our sleeping. There are a few different pools in the hotel which were all clean and it was easy to get a towel for the sunbeds. The pools are open far too late though. We had a room near one of the pools which was open until 11pm and all we could hear was screaming kids. After long days in the theme parks, we were tired and wanted to go to sleep but couldn't due to the noise from the pool. I think if they want the pools open that late, they need to have someone manning the pool just to keep the noise down. Not everyone wants to stay awake late. Or the hotel should just shut the pools at 9 or 10pm at the very latest. I don't think the pools shutting earlier in the evening would put a negative effect on people's holiday. There are a lot of different things to do in the hotel, which we never got round to looking at/seeing as we were in the parks all day. I think if you're looking to stay in the hotel a bit more, then this is a fantastic hotel. It also has free wi-fi, for their guests which in this day and age, is a major plus point. One little gripe about the staff... My boyfriend lost his cap which probably doesn't sound like a big issue but we were told by the staff member that he would look into it and someone would let us know if anyone had handed it in etc. But no-one ever got back to us about it. The hotel is within walking distance of Aquatica and Seaworld, which is handy and it does shuttles to all the major theme parks. All in all we enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Though we didn't spend much time in the hotel due to being at theme parks all day. I would recommend this hotel for definite if you are wanting to spend more time at a hotel than going out during the day. Read less
