Bahama Bay Resort

Kissimmee, Orlando

The hotel

This Caribbean-style resort is right on the banks of the picturesque Lake Davenport and it's laid out over 70 acres of landscaped gardens, making it a truly beautiful place to stay. It even has its own beach on the banks of the lake! The apartment-style condos are exceptionally well equipped and you'll really have no need to eat out, but if you don't want to cook there's a great restaurant on site. This resort is a fantastic place to be if you're the sporty type, with volleyball, basketball, tennis to contend with. Kids will love the playroom and games arcade, while adults can relax and listen to soft Caribbean music by the pool, or take advantage of the fabulous new spa, offering a myriad of treatments and a fitness centre to boot.

The cheapest, most uncomfortable mattresses EVER!!! No blankets or comforters on the beds, only thin sheets. Not enough pillows.

The pool and hot tub close too early to be useful for anyone visiting a theme park during the day. Not particularly clean nor was the staff wasn't particularly friendly. This stay was unacceptable. We will not be returning. Read less

Lovely resort, very well looked after, the restaurant was really good for pool snacks. We did go fishing and caught a turtle 😂 First thing I seen when we arrived was a snake, loads of lizards around and we gave the walk a miss when we seen the gator sign. The apartment was lovely, very comfortable, everything you needed. Only downside was the time it took to drive to the attractions, Old Town although only 8 miles took us half an hour in the traffic, Universal was around 30 to 60 mins depending on traffic flow, not ideal with moaning kids Read less

Im not going to write a wordy review of this place but i am going to give you some hearty advice if you are considering booking this place, some advice that Virgin dont tell you. 1. The property is actually 30 minutes from any of the themeparks by car. dont believe anything else its a fact. You will spend your time in traffic on either the 192 or Is4 going to and from the parks. 2. The property is old. Its showing its age across the whole property. Don't get me wrong its clean and well kept but its tired. Reception needs updating badly, the pools need re grouting, the room we stayed in (3 bed appt on Lucaya Loop was fine but again in need of updating. Tatty fixtures and fittings that all worked but needed newer ones. 3.the property is massive so if you are on the wrong side of it its a 20 minute wals to the restaurant. 4. there is no lift. so if you are on the top floor you need to climb 4 flights of stairs every day. 5, THEY DONT COME IN AND CLEAN YOUR ROOM UNLESS YOU PAY FOR IT! Virgin forgot to mention that you have to clean the place and make you r own beds as well as wash all of your own towels and bed linen. I'm not a fuss but when im on holiday i expect that to be done. 5. Tradewinds restaurant is poor. WE had fish and chips from there are it was inedible. The pizza was passable but don't waste you time just get in the car and drive 10 mins to the 192 and eat there instead. As i said i don't have a problem with Bahama Bay as i don't think they expect people to stay for long periods.(we stayed 3 weeks) but seriously Virgin need to up their game as this wasn't a cheap trip and i do feel short changed.

My husband and I stayed here for 1 week. I am currently a full time Physical Therapy Student who was looking for a budget friendly place to stay for a week before we headed on our cruise. I found the resort grounds wonderful. The pools were well maintained and the sandy beach was a bonus. Great restaurant and love the walking paths. We paid $600 for the week and stayed in a 2 bed 2 bath condo. My advice for travelers is “you get what you pay for.” Do not expect granite countertops and Italian floor tiles with luxury furniture. Go elsewhere and expect to pay 4 times the price. For what we paid, I wouldn’t expect anything more. Our unit was dated and furnished with uncomfortable/cheap furniture. The carpet is old and the paint is chipping. But honestly, that doesn’t bother me. If it bothers you, be ready to spend more cash on a nicer resort. For those on a budget, I found this place to be spacious and comfortable, but definitely not luxury. The location is great. You will be very close to Disney, restaurants, and grocery stores. My only complaint would be the beds. I believe the bigger bed in our room was a full size and it was so worn that the middle was sagging. It felt like sleeping in a rock hard ditch. For that reason, we will not be returning in the future. Most of us going on vacation look forward to catching up on rest and relaxing. These beds will keep you up at night. I heard from others at the resort that all the beds are like that. Now you can still be a budget friendly resort and have decent mattresses. These mattresses are absolute trash. To compare, I traveled all over Asia staying in hostels and the mattress at Bahama Bay is the WORST mattress I have ever slept on. That’s saying something. So that is the only warning I give to those interested in staying at the resort. The beds are horrible and they all sag in the middle. Be ready for some back pain! Read less

We stayed here for 2 weeks and was great and a lot to do, food was lovely and staff very helpful on arrival. These spacious properties was amazing especially for my autistic son as never felt was busy and we are coming back next year for 4 weeks, unfortunately cannot book the same room or unit which he is requesting this time to settle my son as to were we are going as he loved the location of our room before. So he is very anxious this time round as to were we will be put especially as it's such a longer stay I'd love to reassure him. But looking forward to coming back Read less
