My family had our reunion. From the time we we checked in to the banquet and checking out was so amazing. Didn't have shuttle to the park. The bar at the pool played accommodating music for everyone. I loved there was restaurant and bar closing at different time for late comers back to the hotel

The rooms were fine, the service was okay. Room service was slow and got our order wrong.

The rooms were fine, the service was okay. Room service was slow and got our order wrong. Calling the hotel is a nightmare, there is a five minute prelude of advertising before you are even put in the queue, which is really annoying if you already are a guest. No shuttle from the airport, The pool was nice, but in the morning it was clear that nobody made sure trash was picked up from around the lounge chairs. Cafe Matisse much advertised buffet is closed currently, which is not apparent from the website, The food at Jack's Place is too expensive for what you get, service was very friendly, though. The 39 Bar and Grill by the pool is nice, and drinks are good, but again too expensive for what you get. The guacamole however was apparently made from avocados that spent the last year in the freezer. The Lite Bite Express is a 7 Eleven style shop, overall a terrible idea for a upscale hotel. Currently the room cleaning is not available. There was nobody available to help with luggage or secure transportation from the hotel. The elevators are always ready and available, we didn't have to wait once more than a few seconds. All things considered this is only a three star establishment. Read less

The hotel is well-located for visitors to Sea World/Universal and about a 15 minute drive to Disney. It's not as land-locked as many Orlando hotels, with a number of eateries and shops within walking distance. There are also onsite dining options, with a surprisingly good take out/market and other choices that are good but maybe a bit expensive… Read more
The hotel is well-located for visitors to Sea World/Universal and about a 15 minute drive to Disney.

There are also onsite dining options, with a surprisingly good take out/market and other choices that are good but maybe a bit expensive for what you get. Staff was friendly. But there were also problems. There is no housekeeping service due to COVID (totally understandable) but I was told that we could request a "room refresh" after three nights. We requested one, but didn't receive it. After our 4th night, we requested again and the desk clerk didn't seem to know what we were talking about. We asked that our garbage be emptied and for fresh towels. This was done, but they didn't remove the old towels, so we spent the rest of the trip with a soggy pile of towels on the floor of our bathroom. Also, in-room wifi was spotty and, for some reason, we couldn't get good cell service, either, so we basically didn't have connectivity for long stretches of our stay (and it wasn't just us, as we talked to other guests about this problem).

We stayed for a volleyball tournament. The hotel is really nice and very clean. All the food was really good. The staff was very pleasant and accommodating. Just to name a few: Michael at 39, Pat, and Que at Matisse Cafe who always greeted our group with a smile, and are so efficient. Thank you for a wonderful visit.
