We reserved 3 units and they were all great! Even though our trip was in January it was warm enough to use the nice pools. This was our third time staying at this resort and each time we made wonderful memories!

The location is very good, the house we stayed very clean, organized, with everything we needed the only thing I missed was an explanation of everything the condo had, because there are several leisure parts with different things and how the place is very big, we had to find out for ourselves. Another very important thing that I missed was the schedule that the shuttle would spend at the points, in no indication. Read less

This was our family’s 2nd visit to Orange Lake and we loved it once again! So much so we convinced everyone to book for this year. BUT when I receive my credit card bill last week Orange Lake have taken $535 from my card!

This was our family’s 2nd visit to Orange Lake and we loved it once again! So much so we convinced everyone to book for this year. BUT when I receive my credit card bill last week Orange Lake have taken $535 from my card! After many phone calls which cost around £30 to the USA I was told it was for N extra night stay on the 30th/31st December. Which is really funny as we fly home on the 29th. Guest services for IHG are awful! No one has really come back to me and it has cost so much to call the USA I will have to sort it via my credit card as I have proof that I wasn’t even in the country when they charged the card! So if you go it is a fantastic place just check your credit card when you get home! Read less

Trip to Disney great location as recreational facilities lacking quality and maintenance. Restaurant service was poor as well quality of food . Very nice for walking as events for guests were a bit cheesy but okay for passing time if needed.

We enjoyed our stay at Orange Lake. The accommodations were very nice. We had a two bedroom and it was nice and roomy. There are a lot of activities if you want to participate. It is also close to Disney if that is what you there for.
