Our 3rd time here, we just can't find anything that compares, overall. Price, location, amenities, great staff....we love it; it's our "go to" Florida getaway spot. Whether you want a close to them parks location, a quiet lounge by the pool(s) location, a central location to do road trips and exploring, it's first rate. the staff, I can't say enough about. A special shout out to Nahyara Oliveira, Margarita Rivera, and "Jayden" at the registration counters, who turned our special requests into reality and allowed a couple of weary Canadian travelers some much needed peace of mind. The brilliant smile and genuinely welcoming nature of Margarita, was an uplifting experience, and a great start to a peaceful and restful 2 weeks. We think of here as our home away from home, we were treated as such, and hope to be able to return in years to come. We had some minor issues while here, but everything resolved quickly and courteously, to our satisfaction. I recommend wholeheartedly for couples and small families. We heard a lot of laughter and obvious excitement from other guests and their families, and that says a lot. Read less

This was our first time staying here and it did not disappoint! We stayed in a one bedroom villa for nearly a week and it was plenty of room for a family of three. The villa had a separate master bedroom, bathroom, living room, dining area, kitchen and laundry closet. The kitchen was fully equipped with a refrigerator, small stove, dishwasher, plates, bowls and knives. (There were no utensils though.) The laundry closet contained a small washer and dryer. The resort itself is beautiful and immaculate. Employees were friendly. Security is tight; in addition to the gate at the front of the resort, there were always Security driving around no matter what time of the day it was. For families, there are three different pools as well as three different outdoor playgrounds. Other amenities include tennis courts, basketball courts, walking paths and on-site restaurants (for when you cannot be bothered to leave the resort). When we were there, there was even a live DJ at one of the pools on Monday night! The resort has a number of attractions nearby including Disney World, Universal Studios and Sea World. Also nearby are a number of restaurants at every price point. Parking is free. Please note that this is a resort. Unless you have paid for daily housekeeping, there is no housekeeping. This means that your towels and sheets will not be changed. This also means that no one will pick up your trash. Also, you can hear the toilets flush in the next villa because they are so loud. (Either that or the walls are paper thin.) This was not an issue until the last night of our trip when our neighbor had food poisoning and made several trips to the restroom. Because we could hear our neighbor flush the toilet, we became concerned and actually thought about checking on him! Read less

Stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment on the 2nd floor of one of the blocks. First day had the phone all about the presentation. As we were getting over jet lag had an entertaining 90 mins with the salesman for a $150 gift card. Apartment was spacious with all necessary amenities, though the jacuzzi in the main bedroom was weird as was three washbasins but only one toilet. OK for two but could be awkward for 4. First night woken three times by the sound of toilets flushing in adjacent apartments, then a family with children moved in upstairs and the noise from them running up and down was deafening and made the fittings rattle. Accepted the $10 a night eco offer, i.e. no housekeeping which has to be spent in the restaurant. Food there good and attentive waiters but limited choice for Dinner and pestered by a group of mallard ducks begging for food and making a mess on the floor of the outside patio area. Same group of ducks used the main swimming pool as home as well. Pool was excellent, great temperature, room to swim with a quiet pool for adults but getting a sunbed after 9.00am impossible. Rows of empty sunbeds with towels on, some still not occupied at 11.00am. 20 minute drive to Disney Parks and Universal 10 mins to SeaWorld. Plenty of shopping and restaurants locally. Overall a pleasant resort with friendly staff and great amenities but take earplugs. Read less
