Beautiful town home we stayed in. Plenty of space and close to everything we needed food, shopping, convention center. Beds were very comfortable. Only issues were minor housekeeping and the living room furniture was older

From our previous trips to the USA, we have come to expect great customer service and high standards. I am trying hard to be balanced with my review and have been back nearly a week to achieve this, so here goes. Having arrived from a long flight from the UK. We struggled to find where check in was as the signage was limited and only by the good grace of a passing tourist did we manage to find our way to the reception. I could say the welcome was luke warm and automated. But that's fine! However I should taken heed to the red flag of being offered the virgin booked accommodations or an alternative with two double rooms on the other side of the complex. That we had arrived before the other party and had a choice. I accepted the alternative as there was only my partner and our son. I asked for guidance and other than its quieter over there, nothing much more was given. Must not of been in the script. Anyhow... The killer is and what I am still unhappy about is that the condo overlooked a building site for the complex. The Spanish name translated well, view sand... So my usual morning coffee on the varander was out of the question. As I would of had an audience of work men. THIS WASNT SHARED with us. As brits you know how you feel after this flight. We just put it down to hard luck and got on with it. But it did rub me up the wrong way daily. The condo itself, was tired and dated. Reminded me of the golden girl style with the finesse of Soap. You knows the browns and tobacco stain colour? The carpet was shag pile which I haven't experienced since 1993 and for good reason. Hmmm. Overall it was clean but shabby and equipment was very unrefined. This is a gated site with no security guards. Number pad entry, which two gates where broken for the entirety of our stay. So felt safe...not. considering this was by a strip mall I wasnt impressed. There was key card entry to the pool and people where letting others in. Not so sure they where guests and playing loud music on a rubbish sounding mobile was rude and antisocial. We weren't warned about painting maintenance being conducted on the floors. This caused issues for my partner as he needed to use the lift and some days this wasnt easy. Very very underwhelmed by the location, service and accommodation. Will not be back. There is so much better available. Even a beautiful sunrise cant make silk purse out of a sows ear. Read less

Just returned from a 2 week stay at Vista Cay. We stayed in a 3 bedroomed townhouse which, although a little tired in places, was clean, comfortable and very spacious and had everything we needed. With four adults, the fact that each bedroom had a bathroom was a real bonus. The complex was great, and our house was just a few minutes walk from the lovely pool area and gym. The Publix was very handy, but quite a walk in the heat, especially if you were carrying any heavy items. They stocked everything we needed, however it was quite expensive. The NYPD pizza place was very good; we had takeaways on two occasions, but you could also eat in. The best thing about Vista Cay is the location. Having been to Orlando several times, we have always stayed on villa complexes off the US27. This time we just wanted to be closer to everything, and we found the location ideal. We were only a few minutes from SeaWorld and Universal, and the Disney parks were just a little further to drive. Also, there were plenty of restaurants on International Drive. I would definitely recommend Vista Cay to anyone wanting to stay in a spacious, comfortable property on a safe, gated community, just a few minutes drive from all the main attractions. Read less

Vista Cay: On the plus side, our 2-bedroom apartment unit for the week was spacious, and very quiet. There is a large, centrally located pool (about a 5 minute walk from our apartment unit), which was a very pleasant temperature and pretty busy with lots of families and people of all ages (+/- grandparents which suited us).

Vista Cay: On the plus side, our 2-bedroom apartment unit for the week was spacious, and very quiet. There is a large, centrally located pool (about a 5 minute walk from our apartment unit), which was a very pleasant temperature and pretty busy with lots of families and people of all ages (+/- grandparents which suited us). There was a nice looking, very shallow kids pool, which older adults were sitting around (not in; see minuses below), probably because it was much quieter than the larger pool. The location of the resort is convenient to many attractions, and the price was relatively reasonable. Minuses: The hallways are like what I imagine a nice correctional institute might look like, with yellow spackled concrete walls. The unit also had spackled concrete walls with very dated decor. It looks much nicer in the online pictures. When we opened the door, it smelled of mould and chlorine, which we could go “nose-blind” to within 30-40 minutes after each entry. However, I couldn’t put any clothes into the drawers because of the strong mouldy smell inside the dresser. The kids pool itself was empty because it was too cold for adults or children. Read less
