A well appointed, spacious and comfortable one bedroom unit in the beautiful Key West section of this resort was our vacation home for a few days this month between out of country trips. It provided a convenient International Drive location, and the comforts of home, including nice kitchen space, easing our travel schedule. We were able to enjoy the property amenities including tennis, where they lent us the equipment. The only 'negative' I'd note was that although this resort, like other MVC properties, has relatively high end barbecue equipment conveniently installed, the grills I used at this property were less well maintained than those I've experienced at other resorts, which were absolutely top notch. As such, heat control and grilling were a bit more challenging than I would have liked. It should be an easy fix, elevating the experience, if the resort has a mind to do it. Read less

This is a fantastic place to stay. Everyone at the front desk area was great. The room was unbelievable. The only things I would recommend to them was get rid of the rugs in the room & check the a/c & fan (allergies). A little further from the busy are of International Dr but worth it.

We had a very pleasant stay of 8 days at this resort! We booked the 2 bedroom villa, whcih ended up being a bigger suite connected to a smaller one, each with its own kitchen area and bathroom - the bigger suite having a living room, a whirlpool and a balcony. I highly recommend this setup if you're travelling with multiple adult family members or teenagers, as it gives everyone their own space and early risers can make their coffee without waking everyone. With the two king beds and two sofa beds, you could easily fit 8 people comfortably. All the staff members we encountered were polite, friendly and helpful, from the gardeners wishing us good morning to the smiling servers at the restaurant. We spent most of our stay without needing housekeeping, but the one time we asked through the texting system for extra coffee items we were helped within the hour. I want to highlight Anton at checkin, who was very sweet in wishing my mom a happy birthday and helping us find our way around. Read less

We had been here before and knew we lived this resort for the grounds. There are “lakes” with bridges, waterfalls and the landscaping is beautiful! Our room was generally clean, but when housekeeping came there seemed to be many things missed. The cupboard door in our kitchen was hanging off by one working hinge. The sink stopper didn’t fit our sink properly, which was important because we hand wash bottles. Their paperwork says that swim diapers are required in all pools and are given complimentary. When I asked the front desk about where to get them, they had no idea what I was talking about out and had to consult a manager. The manager came and told me that they had discontinued that program and just hasn’t updated their paperwork. My opinion is that if it is stated in the paperwork, it should be honored. I was told by guest services that there were no pool items to borrow. I’ve been to other resorts that provide floats, tubes, noodles, etc. for guests. The recreation center had a Wii inside, and a pool table and ping pong table outside. Again, I would have expected some other items- books, games, etc. Nothing crazy, but more than just the bare minimum. Restaurant selections were minimal. Would not extend our check out past noon, which is disappointing since we are elite Bonvoy members. It’s good for your basic stay, but I had too many small issues that piled up. Read less

Not my favorite. Been coming to Orlando for 43 years first time here. Unable to honor a single failry simple request. Reception not very pleasant.Just one request would have been nice, like first floor instead of 3rd floor..Housekeeping never came but left their bags of clean towels and sheets at our door over night. So we.brought the bags in took care of it ourselves yet charged us $180 cleaning room fee. Disputing the charge.. and to top it off a few guests at pool pretty unpleasant. Very. Won't be staying here again. Have had far better experiences elsewhere. Read less
