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.

M y family and I have had six wonderful holidays in Florida between 2005 and 2019. Every time we have stayed at Bahama Bay, because the first time we went there it was so special that we wanted to go there again. The apartments we had were excellent. My grandchildren enjoyed all the amenities, especially the play areas, pools and beach. I would recommend it to anyone. The only drawback is that you must have a car. We were luckyas one of my sons was able to drive us everywhere Read less

We recently stayed for a month. The first apartment was poor, dirty carpets, beds dreadful, really tired furniture, the resort staff who were really helpful allocated us another apartment. This was acceptable for our stay, however, I still feel the apartments are a long way from how the grounds, pools and walks around the resort are maintained. The staff work very hard to keep bins emptied, pool areas clean, and grass well kept. As the apartments are all owned by private people, I feel the resort management, should be able to say we cannot let your apartment until you bring it up to an acceptable level! Some have obviously not been updated since the resort opened. I liked the resort, but without a guarantee of a better apartment for a future stay I would not return Read less

Nice friendly resort with a sandy beach and a beautiful pool. Fairly large units with plenty of space. Livingroom couches were torn and not very comfortable. IMAX theater, grocery not too far from resort

We were lucky to have exchanged into one of the better3 bedroom units at Bahama Bay resort.There was an issue with one of ourr appliances and we were offered a chance to move to another unit. Upon inspection of two other units it was clear that they were more outdated and the furniture needed repair so we chose to stay in unit assigned. All units are owner owned so the resort staff is there for upkeep and maintenance . Resort staff were all very helpful and accomodating. Pool areas werre clean and inviting. Well maintained.grounds etc. There is even a small enclosed beach area next to a large lake. This is a large resort with many units and has sidewalk walking trails throughout the resort. Shopping and restaurants and golf etc. are nearby outside gates but you will need a car to access. Theme parks are about 30 mins drive away. Our 3 bedroom unit was roomy and comfortable. There was a screened in balcony off living room and master bedroom. Each balcony was very small with only room for 2 people. Our granddaughrer enjoyed the pool and playground areas. The Master bedroom had a comfortable new mattress but the guest bedroom had a mattress that sank in middle. Third bedroom had twin beds. All units have a Pack n Play/crib and highchair provided which is a nice touch. Furnishings and their upkeep are all owner controlled. so we were lucky to have a unit that had been somewhat updated although one appliance needed to be replaced. We were assured by front desk that our unit would be blocked from further rentals until owner replaced it. Front desk staff were courteous. and very helpful with anything we needed. We had a fun week at Bahama Bay. . Read less

I just first want to say to anyone considering this resort who, like me, takes every review into consideration, please believe the positive over the negative. This was our first time staying at Bahama Bay. We booked for 3 weeks as we were eloping whilst in florida so it was our holiday, wedding and honeymoon all in one. And so you can imagine I was scared of what might be for somewhere we hadn't stayed before. But honestly it was a home from home. Yes it is 20-30 minute drive to the parks but i would never recommend anyone going to Orlando without a car and why is 30 mins such a big deal anyway???? Secondly we were upgraded to a 3 bedroom apartment on the second floor, for us this was fantastic but it is true there are no lifts. Its not that there are 100s of stairs but yes i can see it would be a problem for some people. The apartment was exactly the same as one we had at a previous location years back however at a fraction of the price. So we were absolutely over the moon with it. Yes it was a little outdated but no offense, I find american furniture and taste is a little outdated. It was still a wonderful resort. An absolute highlight for me was talking a walk every morning down to the 2 lakes to see what I could see on a little nature spotting. I've seen people complain about the distance of the complex and our apartment was at the very furthest side but it was still only a 5 minute walk down to the reception or lakes - and I am by no means athletic. And the distance means our apartment was quiet. We had our own pool which was used frequently but was never loud. So although you may be a little further from the pool house you will still be close to a pool as there are multiple. The only issue we encountered was that it was Jersey Week whilst we stayed. We had 2 nights of constant music and shouting. I unfortunately had to call security a few times as it was 2am and they were not getting any quieter. After a few friendly visits they did finally turn the music off - but started again the next day. My husband then called security and they turned the music off again. So we cannot fault the resort with how well they handled that. We loved our stay so much. We have been home for 3 months now and are still talking about it on a daily basis because we would love to come back. Read less
