First week in of a 2 week visit, have stayed in many hotels on international drive over the years including Westgate and the sonesta suites beats all of them. Rooms are spacious, clean, comfortable housekeeping is excellent. Whole hotel has a laid back family friendly atmosphere and nothing is to much trouble. Tyler on front desk is exceptional as are the rest of the hotel staff. Would 100% reccomend to anyone, location is a bonus with icon park facing. Free shuttle service to both Disney and universal parks. Not sure you could ask for anything else. Would definitely come back here. Thanks to everyone involved in this lovely hotel Read less

A comedy really. We arrived to find the room desperately needed air freshener. Every day the housekeeping staff would forget towels, either face or body. None of them spoke any English, which made me wonder what country we were in. Aside from the Hotels faults, it was in an excellent location. Would stay in this area again, not this hotel though.

Booked late for a Christmas /New Years stay in Orlando . This was the most affordable at the time for a family of 5 adults in a 2 bedroom suite .Great location. Close to lots of dining and shopping areas . Free shuttle to Universal . Didn't like the pool . Small and only 8 longers on the sunny side . Could never get a spot . Plenty of free loungers in the shade . Breakfast was included . And if you don't mind all the disposable plates,cups too many people jostling around fighting for a pancake from the 6 batch they brought out once in a while,go for it ! Cereals cornflakes ,Fruit loops and Special K . Toast sweet pastries . Mixed fruit was apple.No bacon just scrambled egg . Again ,not my idea of breakfast . Too many people too small area and not enough tables . Wouldn't stay here again as you pay for breakfast included . So I'd rather stay elsewhere and go out for breakfast or make my own in the room .

I Booked my hoilday with virgins and they class it as a four star. This hotel is no where near a four star, its was basic, some of the furniture looks wore out and tatty. I slept on the sofa bed which was so uncomfortable. Breakfast was horrendous no hot food unless you like corn beef, the best part of breakfast was the pancake machine and fruit… Read more
I Booked my hoilday with virgins and they class it as a four star. This hotel is no where near a four star, its was basic, some of the furniture looks wore out and tatty. I slept on the sofa bed which was so uncomfortable. Breakfast was horrendous no hot food unless you like corn beef, the best part of breakfast was the pancake machine and fruit juices. While my family and I was staying here we all experienced bed bugs my mother ankle was swollen, when we complain at the front desk they told us that house keeping has finish for today and we had to change our own bedsheets. The only good thing is that there was a shuttle bus to go to disney and universal studios however when returning home we could of waited up to two hours. I wouldn't stay here again nor would recommend it. Read less

The booking included breakfast which was ok and a good start to the day. Pool area was small but fairly quiet unless families were on an OFF Disney day:( Rooms were good size with dining area and kitchenette,our air-con started smoking one evening but reception were great and got us moved immediately. Overall we would recommend as a good base for a Florida visit. Read less
